I don't get it

If you know me, I love my friends. I have my select few who mean the world to me. This past week I have basically lost respect for 2 of their husbands. Seriously what is with men treating girls like shit and walking all over them. It's disgusting. Yes I am calling the kettle black. My marriage is anything but perfect. I have been through a lot. A lot of girls would have left. I probably should have at some point. But I haven't. But this has nothing to do with me.

I just don't think girls deserve the shit they are put through. Cheating husbands...I mean it in anyway. Talking to a girl about topics that you shouldn't talk about while you are married. You are disrespecting your wife and the girl you are having these discussions with. And then going out on separate occasions with the girl who isn't your wife....fuck you...seriously. I am done with you. You have been removed from my life. I love my best friend and she comes first always. Yes I have been cheated on...not the greatest feeling. I understand you want to work through your issues. But seriously!!!

Being treated like shit isn't fun. Talk to your wife like she is the most important being in your life. Because she is. If you wouldn't talk to your mother like that do NOT talk to your wife like that. Do not dummy your wife/significant other. She is smart and has to put up with your bullshit everyday. She should throw your ass to the curb. But she doesn't she sticks with you. I think it's bull. Yes, pot calling the kettle black. I just don't like to see my friends get hurt. I wish men would realize what they do to us and change it accordingly.

What happened to my Dad's generation? He is a gentleman, treats my mom like gold. Flowers on Valentine's Day, Mother's day, her birthday and just because. He can cook, clean and do his own laundry. Baah! I am frustrated with how things have changed. Yes I am snowballing into other things. But I have a lot on my mind and now somewhere to put it. All of these opinions are my own. Yes they will probably cause some people issues with me but seriously. I don't care. This is what I am thinking.

I still don't know what the eff I am doing!!!

Day 4 - Mixed Doubles

A day late but last night was a late one!

Mixed doubles was better than ladies doubles by far. Didn't make it out of our section but my darts were better. Warming up they felt good like they usually do, even threw a 171 during warm up! Felt good. For my non dart peeps, a 171 is 3 triple 19's. It's the 180 of 19s. Play started slow. We struggled a little bit. I was paired with Ken Friesen, great guy and great dart player. We found a groove here and there. Had a couple good matches. Then it happened....I threw a 171 while playing!! Made my fucking day! I have only even been able to throw a 171 while warming up. So I was pumped. We lost the match but I was still excited.

No Saskatchewan teams made it out of their sections. Danny McKenzie and Kathy Kerrigan had a playoff to make it out but they weren't able too......I was the chalker (new career I tell ya!)

Oh and just a side note....don't move your gum around while you are not allowed to move a fucking muscle.....ask me about it....I have a story! Dummy.

We had out banquet yesterday night as well. They handed out awards and trophies. Food was good. Came back early and Skyped with Julius and the Kids. Kierstyn is a hilarious kid.

Today is the Nodor cup and tomorrow is the Canadian Open. Nationals are done my friends. :) I had a great time. Met some awesome people. Today I am also going to do some shopping. Hope the weather hold out.'s just rain.

Check ya later!

Day 3 - Ladies singles

Today was better. Fruit Loops and coffee for brekkie! Back to basics!!!!

Warming up was good. My section wasn't too bad. I took more than yesterday. I only got 2 wins for the day, but I knew walking into Nationals that there were a lot of players who are better than me and to just play my game and that is what I did. Yes, I should have had more outs. And trust me I was hard on myself. I got in my head, analyzed my stance.....screwed myself up for a game and then slapped myself back into reality. Played my game and improved big time!!! Wins didn't happen but a all around better day.

3 Sask ladies made it through. Bonnie LaPierre,  Cathy Kerrigan and Joan Hodgen. Cathy and Joan were knocked out in the first round.  Bonnie made it 1 round further and then was knocked out. Apparently if my dart career doesn't oan out, I am one hell of a chalker!!! Everyone was commenting on my math skills. ...

We had a team supper tonight at Bluenose II. I was good. I had salmon and mashed potatoes. It was good to go out with everyone. After that we walked around the Harbour.  Took some pictures and then went to the casino.

Tomorrow is mixed doubles and the banquet.
Picture from the Harbour.  So beautiful! 
Another day! Friday is more sight seeing in the afternoon. Going to be so fun!!

Until then!

Day 2 - Ladies Doubles

Today was rough!!

Woke up at 6:15 my time....too damn early at home! Got dressed...cannot have breakfast in our jammies....hotel rules. Had and egg, sausage, biscuit and juice. Tomorrow will be cereal.....stick with a good thing. Oh and a tea! I miss my tea!

Took the shuttle to the BMO center. Big place. Google's pretty cool. Grabbed my darts and started practicing....was throwing well. I was feeling good.  Tired but good. Announced the march in and ti assemble with our team. Did that. We then listened to a few people talk. The introduced team champions!! Yay to ours.  Danny McKenzie and Kathy Kerrigan. Then we threw a while longer.  While we waited for team pictures. Did that. I'll post it when I get it.

After running about 30 mins late we finally get started.  And that's when it happened. ....I fell apart. Double s isn't my strong suit to begin with. But today was awful. I feel sorry for Joan having to be stuck with me all day. She wasn't playing her best either. It was a bad bad day!  I finished 2 games....but when they don't go by finishes but by best of 3 and it's a w or l by your I said bad day!!

I needed to get into a groove and didn't.  Painful. I haven't shot sooo shitty for a long time. Welcome to Nationals! Baah! Never been so happy to have a day done!

Kathy Kerrigan and Bonnie LaPierre made it out of their section. Only Saskdoubles team to make it out. Men and women. They made joint 5th!! Yay!!

Went and got subway for supper and some candy to make me feel better ;)

Tomorrow is another day and a whole new game. Cannot beat myself up over a day that is done! Oh...and it rained almost all afternoon/evening.  Must have been the weathers fault....right?

Now before I go to bed.....its five to nine here....Thank you to everyone whonhas supported me. All your words of encouragement have been great!!!

Made it to Halifax

Made it!! I am sitting my hotel room. I haven't decided in whether i am going to go to bed or stay up a little bit longer. I am exhausted!! I have no idea how people do this all the time.

I am away. Darts starts tomorrow and i am terrified on how i will do. Tomorrow is ladies  doubles. Should be interesting. I just have to play my game and thats it. Baah!!

Going to need coffee tomorrow!!!!

I'm awake

As I am wiping the sleep from my eyes, wondering why I haven't put tea on. I know, I should be getting mobile.  I have an hour until I leave and pick up Dad so he can bring me to the airport.

Never been on a plane before....meh. Headed to Calgary first. So I get to wake up get somewhat concious before we fly the long flight from Saskatoon to Calgary...yay...then sit for 3 hours before we fly to Halifax! I better turn the kettle on.
