If it's family day, why am I alone?

My family has left me. My brother is at work. Keith is at work. My munchkins are at Disney. My moms is probably at home, but i was in the beaches last night for birthday party and don't feel like schlepping my butt back there again...WAIT...that was an excuse, wasn't it? GAH! poop. er...uh... But seriously, why are we calling it family day? I thank uncle Dalton for giving me a new holiday in the middle of winter to do sweet eff all, but maybe we could name it something else? We did have flag day on Friday that no one gave a rat's patootie about, why didn't we roll that up into it? grrrr. I need something to do. NOW.

I'm at work. Nova Scotia sucks - I want to be with my family.

I'm home...working...without family.

Not that I have any family here anyway. :)

I'm so bored, I keep checking and re-checking everyone's blogs to see if there's anything new.

Hi Mouse, It's me, your friendly neighbourhood stalker. I gave your blog an award for excellence (felt kind of quirky yesterday and all) because I think you are awesome.

Hope today at work is more 'fun'.

Actually you can thank Mr Klein for Family Day. It started in Alberta because his son got busted for drugs, so he instituted Family Day to give Albertans a day to celebrate family values and stop all their kids from getting high on drugs (sure! one day a year should do it huh!?). It worked for him I guess, took the heat off. Then the rest of the provinces got jealous and now a bunch have it!

As an American I find this fascinating. We had "presidents day," a generic holiday dedicated to Big Department Store sales. No one ever remembers which presidents we're honoring.

At least I remember who my family members are... most of the time. Your holiday sounds much more sensible.

Oh, and that previous post was hysterical. Will not be rushing out to buy any Bistro Express anytime soon!
