five things friday where you can find out what’s been making me smile (or frown) this week
Good morning, friends.
This week has been A.Week which is why I’ve been absent for a few days. Next week will be another busy week, but then things should (hopefully) calm down somewhat.
Today, instead of sharing some things I love, I’m going to share some un-favourites, because I just need to get some things off my chest.
Seriously. Ear infections are the flipping worst.
I’m feeling better now that I have antibiotic drops, but my goodness I was not a happy camper on Thursday. And, yes, I’m still going to swim on Sunday for my tri.
I recently came across a situation where a business had used an image taken by another blogger. Since I knew who owned the image, I reached out to the company to give them a heads up. The details aren’t important, but can we all please remember the following:
- If you use an image, it is your responsibility to ensure it’s for public use. It doesn’t matter if it’s not watermarked, or if it’s not linked to something; the onus is on the person using the image, not the creator.
- If you didn’t take it, or pay for it, you probably shouldn’t use it.
No, I don’t want to share your infographic on my blog. Especially not for free.

Since I believe in balancing the good with the bad, here are two ‘goods’ in my life.
I’m working a half day today and am heading to the TEDxYYC conference for the afternoon.
I’ve wanted to go to this for years and was offered a ticket and I’m just so excited. I honestly haven’t paid a ton of attention to who is presenting, so I’ll happily be surprised when I get there.
I’m taking eleven days off from work starting next Friday. I’ll be in Houston for four of those day (YIPPEE) and will have the remainder at home organizing, enjoying the weather, and getting ready for Stampede which starts in two weeks!
