emoticon when the snow its here with the winds off the lake it is BAD we moved enough to stay at Harv's --- we went down for some night clothes and to eat down at the cabin, on the way back we passed Harv's twice and he has lots of lights on. emoticon OH I nearly sh t myself, you could not see 1 foot in front of you, we had some a$$ right behind us with his lights shining right through our truck, the road was truly GONE--- OHHHHHH I was so scared.

Oh and BTW Sandi this was only 4 min. up the road---- not a long drive.

Got Amelia to school and ran to a store to buy a few things ...lol finally home.. 3h ours later.

strange up at Huron and Highbury no snow but got down the hill towards my place snowing like a blizzard ... with accumulations ... all warm in the house now .. and flakes still coming down...but not as bad ...

No call from the school so all must be good - I gave her medicine before sending her to school.

Oh DEAR...is how today starts...Kathy, so sorry about your grandson & poor pooch...seems like you are under a funnel cloud with all the reno stuff...& terrible time for a furnace breakdown...actually, my xmas plans are just fine...I usually do the hosting & so it's a change for me...it was hubby who decided that xmas wasn't going to happen at our house xmas day...maybe we will have something over New Years...don't know yet...

Judy, the snow seems to bring out your spirit...if the snow is anything like our end of the city...you will need those books...home sweet home is the best feeling, I agree with you...

Jo, so sad that Amelia is still sick, with Gord sick too, did he ask for your granddaughter to go to school?

We had a crummy late am. we heard that there was an accident on Highbury at the 401 this am. So we were leery of our lunch date in Strathroy...At 10:30 we called my Dad's in Thedford, no answer & left a message...that if the weather was bad to call us by 11...so no call...we leave & head out #4 Colonel Talbot to the 401...before we got to the 401...snow squalls made visibility tough & the hubby turned back...we have hardly anything here but couldn't see in front of us. I call him at 11:15 still no answer...we got back & I left ANOTHER message at 11:30...we then call the Sunset restaurant where we were supposed to meet at 12 noon...& left a message...needless to say, he wouldn't be impressed when he received that message...anyway, he has a cell phone & won't use it, so we couldn't reach him any other way...Hope he doesn't nix our xmas plan....

Kathy, I don't know how you do it. Sure hope the it all stops soon. I agree they should pay the bill is his guy put it together wrong. Hope Phoenix is better today. emoticon

Jo, the joy's of little ones in school, the sickness never seems to go away for long. Hope they emoticon

Mary, Hope you don't get snowed in! Mind you that would be kinda peaceful and beautiful looking out at the snow. emoticon emoticon

Sandi, Nice pictures.Glad the trip to Toronto went well and the class group turned out nice. emoticon

Well still no word from any of the kids as to what is happening over Christmas so just maybe ours will be a quiet one too. With all this snow coming I may be in for a long quiet day today emoticon Will take a couple books for sure. Did a couple new recipes and was able to put a few dishes in the freezer for DH when I'm at work. Think I will do a couple more on Sunday to get a small back up pile for him.

I've done all I can for now with the house and I must say I'm loving it. I now have a home not a junk yard emoticon
Well off to get ready to go. Keep warm emoticon emoticon




Courage, compassion,love.....Life is good.

Jo - All you had to do was look for the tiniest gal with the BIGGEST BRIGHTEST smile out there, and you would have spotted Sandi at first glance!!! Sorry that the plague is in your household again!

Sandi - It really is a lovely photo! I would love to have you here for Christmas dinner, but you would NOT survive - I barely make it through the event myself... emoticon emoticon We are loud, noisy, louder, chaotic and crowded - you would have to be INSANE to actually want to be a member of one of our family holiday celebrations! Mike copes by turning both hearing aids OFF!

Okay so....
1.) Reliance was here mid - afternoon, briefly, just a simple fix but still cost $99+ tax.... I will be talking to Pete about that, because apparently the problem was caused something the plumbers did the day before! They disconnected something, then hooked it back up to the wrong thing.

2.) Phoenix is really sick again - nauseous and the runs - so pretty hefty vet trip - stool sample thankfully was negative for anything gross or nasty, which means once again... no clear answers.. story of his life! He did seem slightly better today though, so fingers are crossed that we caught whatever it is quickly!

3.) Meaganne and I are both still having nasty coughing spells, but are NOT contagious apparently. Have been told the cough could linger on for up to 10 weeks????? Really????? There is the thought that perhaps part of our problem is caused by dust, etc. from all the reno work on top of regular stuff in the ducts that are being blown throughout the whole house every time the furnace (blower) cuts in.

4.) Jennifer just let us know that Zach is very ill and has been in hospital for the last couple of days - now on oxygen, Apparently he has pneumonia ... took his parents over a week of him being too sick for school to finally get him into the doctor. Sometimes I really wonder about those two!!!

5.) Final electrical inspection was today - failed it.... nothing serious, but means getting the electricians back here to the couple of minor fixes, then booking another inspection... don't know when the final plumbing one is happening yet.

thanks for the compliment, buddy...Jo, I am in the back row...unfortunately, not much light during photo time...but it was OK...I adjusted exposure when I processed the client copies...they should be tickled with them....

Jo, sorry you are in the sick house...really hampers the progress of daily living especially this time of year...we made our xmas dinner plans at The Wayside this year...they are open xmas day...since the mister is on nights, it means he'll sleep in the am. so I won't be hosting...will be surprised if our daughter comes...guess it will be VERY quiet...

Going to meet Dad in Strathroy tomorrow for a lunch...did a bunch of little housework chores today & went for a CHILLY walk to start off with...

How's your place coming, Kathy? Are you feeling any better?

Kathy so darn sorry about the furnace, what the heck?

To tell you the truth, I never thought of the bed long/ length wise until you mentioned it.

I had one heck of a night. Awake until 400am like I mean really? I was wide awake, I read one whole novel. I had coffee arounf 100, that is a no no for me.

HAHA Mary - You're right, but who would ever guess that Mike would be the one in the shortest bed emoticon emoticon emoticon

Meaganne used to have a fuzzball on her bed all the time, but now Phoenix can't up there anymore unless she lifts him up herself, and then he thinks she is planning on torturing him (grooming, trimming feet or nails) so he shakes like a leaf and won't stay there for long. Sad really, but one of the perks that comes with old dogs.

Plumbers were here again today, to tweak a couple of things before calling for final plumbing inspection. Same company but different minions today - guess the 2 guys who actually did all the plumbing work must have been busy somewhere else.

Pete was really sick so took today off - his guy was here though, so got some of the little things done. The end HAS to be close!!!

The furnace is not working at all - really really cold in here right now!! Reliance informed me that our warranty ran out earlier this year - to my complete surprise!!!! So the "emergency" visit tomorrow afternoon will start at $99 for the diagnostic part, then we'll find out what parts / labour will be required too..... Shall I say I am definitely NOT a happy camper right about now?? The darn thing is only just 5 1/2 years old!!!!

We did a quick run to London, home warm in my cabin now.

Kathy, my guess was made on the fact that Meag needed the queen because of furbaby always sleeping with her. LOL well I was right on Mikes, glad he let you get him a double.

I love my King it gives us so much pet room. LOL

Yuppers, the queens are way bigger, so why he doesn't want one I cannot figure out at all. I know exactly how much he used to hog almost the entire queen before he moved downstairs... I'm surprised that he can fold himself up small enough to even partially fit on a single bed! emoticon emoticon emoticon

It's snowing!! The deck is completely covered after about only 10 minutes - wonder if this time the snow is here to stay?

Sandi - Sounds like you really did have a lovely weekend with Erin! That is so nice for all 3 of you! The pics are great, too.

Jo - Sorry you lot are sick again. I feel your misery! I just can't seem to shake this darn cough or congestion either. Feeling under the weather is definitely NO FUN!!!

Mary - Are you all moved to Harv's yet, or still at the cabin?

You gals were so wrong on the 'who has what bed' quiz....
.
The little short person has the biggest one - that would be me with the queen while Meaganne has the double, which leaves the family giant with the single.....

Mike's new bedroom set IS a double though - I could NOT get him to go back to a queen for some reason. You'd think that's what he would want since he's almost 6'3" tall...

The tree came upstairs this afternoon and is all put together, but at the moment is still mostly naked...just the Angel on top so far - lights are going on as I write this.

Meaganne and I are worried about the whole NO carpet thing this year with so many of our ornaments being custom made and FRAGILE too. I'm trying to decide on a different way to showcase the beautiful hand - painted Collie ornaments that usually hang from the mantel garland - again worrying about the hard floor and potential for disaster..

Hi Ladies, Catching up....love your tree Judy & good job on the deals!!! Sounds like Kathy is getting closer to the end of the reno & nearer to our xmas party at her digs...Get rid of your cough first though.... emoticon

Mary, sounds like R&R is at your new winter place...I knew you moved from cabin #1...I thought it was into cabin #2...

Jo, your DIL sounds like my cousin's new bride from Thailand...they have the same kind of family support system...although he lives there in Bangkok & the parents are in Chang Mai & the daughter built their home for them...check out FB for some pics...unbelievably beautiful...

Had a fab weekend...We enjoyed the Christmas market in the old Distillery district until the crowds started to get too thick...I'm either too old or just needed space, but it was a bit much...loved the fact it was geared to ALL people...you could go to christmas shop or spend the evening trying out samples...picture Cosco in the European cobblestone alley streets all dressed in christmas light splendour...it was glorious! Then Saturday went to the 1 of a kind show in TO...I LOVE the artisans who display unique articles for sale...yes, I just window shopped & bought nothing...hubby was in shock!!! emoticon

Enjoyed my time with Erin & we shared a lovely going home meal before we left...she hasn't committed yet to Christmas so we'll see!

Today was at a cousin's christmas tea...oh man...so many goodies...that darn Gharadelli made a BIG appearance...& was hugely yummy...god help my WI on Tues...another good trip courtesy of SPARKY!

I can guess

Mike-- single-- You, double and Meag has the queen====

So nothing going on today, 3 in the park--- I had a good laugh by myself
We went to get water and pay a paper, when we got home Jim says, "Think I will take a nap"
This after sleeping 12 hours last night. He would never take a nap if Jimmy or Billy were here.

Why, thank you Kathy, for thinking of me, I have actually seen those movies. Once is enough.
I am still watching the ones you gave me. Some we have seen but we have enjoyed them again.
We been thinking of starting to watch the Harry Potter movies, we have never watch any of them.

I am glad everything is coming together for you. I sure wish you could get rid of that cough.

Kathy woot woot ....

I watched the Santa Clause movies last night ....liked Tim Allen in them..


Judy --Ann is working lots ... sending money home to father... he lost his home in the typhoon... and he has 3 of his grand daughters to house too.. so they need shelter fast..right now they have 3 walls to huddle with... sad...

Glad you stood your ground and didn't offer up your basement... time they stood on their own... best thing you can do for them.

Everyone have a good day...

Oh Kathy that is so wonderful to hear. So glad the end of the dis array is finally at the end.
Sandi Enjoy the Eaton center. I haven't seen it decorated for Christmas in years.
Mary, I'm sure the guys will love all your cooking, veggies or not. I know I would.
Hi Jo. Ann working lots of hours this time of year?

I got a metal king size head board for my bed for 15$, so excited. I'm pretty much done now, just a few things that I will wait patiently for. The tree decorations are done for now as even at half price they are expensive. I'll get my sister to shop for me after Christmas and hopefully get me better deals.

Oh for got..........my oldest got his 30 day notice to move after only 3 months. Not sure why? the Guy said he has family issues and may need it. Any way he is moving in with his big sister for a couple months to save money for first and last months rent. Going to be interesting. Also Missy will be there for her 3 wk Christmas break. Oh to be a fly on the wall. I didn't offer the basement back.

Have a great day emoticon emoticon

Mary - I actually thought about offering you the Christmas movies that Meaganne has that are duplicates of mine..

.If you or any of the rest of you gals ARE interested in any of them, let me know, otherwise I 'll give them to Jennifer or our friend from Belmont - there are only about a half dozen of them I think.. all 3 of the Tim Allen "The Santa Claus" set, Polar Express plus a couple other ones.

Judy - The tree looks lovely!

Sandi - Drive safely, and have a lovely weekend away! Despite growing up in Toronto, I have NEVER been to the Eaton Center, but then... I do NOT do malls unless there is absolutely zero option to avoid them.

Jo - Did you ever get rid of your cough? I bet the kidlets are getting excited about Christmas.

The last of the new dining room chairs got fixed today - that only took almost 16 months! The service guy also fixed the china cabinet, moved it into place and plugged it in while he was here!!! He is ordering a new end table and headboard which he says should be here within 4 days of him placing the order..... will believe that when I see it.

The painter was here again to do some repairs and touch ups to the living room and my bedroom ceilings.

The rest of the basement floor got prepped today, and Mike has put the first coat of paint on his bedroom floor - not sure if he did any of the rest of the floor down there yet.

Pete was here for a bit and did the final 'tweaks' to the fireplace.

There are only a couple of things still to be done outside, along with a couple of things inside downstairs as well as painting the office, but I think we might, just might, be finished with only another 1 or 2 more days of work!

The well is DRY DRY DRY, so sadly new floors aren't happening until at least next spring or summer, nor will I be getting my new drapes for the living room and patio doors any time soon.

On the plus side for now though .... we CAN finally start unloading some of the gazillion boxes we've had in the living room for the whole reno process!!!

Busy weekend ahead - emptying boxes and working on Christmas decorations!

I hope Sandi has a good time. Hubby must get the whole week end off.

Sandi when you get back here, you have confused me? I am moving out of the cabin, not into it.
AND no, I do not watch Christmas movies, not most of them anyway.

Kathy, we do not have much to move, just kind of pick up and go. Make do with what I will take.
Harv, is a bachelor and he lives with not much cooking--- so I will take pots I like to cook in, he will eat well for 2 months.

Hi Gals!!!

WooHoo! Kathy is getting that holiday spirit! Mary must be almost all moved into her cabin, thinking of you with those roaring fires & cosy surroundings. Are you watching any xmas movies? My PVR is on overload...& approaching 100 % & being away won't help that cause...

Kathy, Erin lives in Castlefield/Yonge Street area. We are staying at a hotel attached to the Eaton Center...she plans to take us to the Christmas Market in the Distillery area as well as the one of a kind show on Saturday...should be lots of walking to combat all my eating...

Hi Jo, everything getting holiday ready at your house? I was wrapping bananas & carrots for my daughter's bunny today & thought of the kids when they were younger & their love of the animals around the holidays...Bet you can relate Judy, being an animal lover as you are....

Have a great day everyone!

Evening all - hope everyone had a good day today!

Mary - Are you all moved out of the cabin yet?

Jo, Judy - I guess your places are all decorated by now?

Have fun in Toronto Sandi! What part of the city does your daughter live in? I grew up mostly in the Bayview / Steeles area of Willowdale, then moved to the Don Mills / Shepherd area for high school.

FINALLY... got to enjoy 2 of my favourite Christmas CDs today!!!!! YIPPEE

FINALLY .. almost have a living room again!!! (at least the end of the oh so long tunnel is actually in sight now!)

FINALLY... starting to feel like Christmas decorating is actually doable, even if somewhat modified from the usual.

FINALLY... the outside Christmas lights ALL came on as planned - not quite at the same time for some strange reason, but still they DID light up!!!

The coughing is still pretty intense, but more in phases than just all the time, so I guess I have to consider that somewhat of an improvemnt?

The one station here that plays non - stop Christmas all day long also plays the same songs over and over again all day long - they do the same with their regular music, so I stopped listening to them and switched to a different station.

I mostly rely on my own Christmas CDs, in the house or in the van, then I get to pick music that I actually want to hear.

Mary - you'll have to wait to see the fireplace when you come here again. emoticon emoticon emoticon

Sandi - You would fit in perfectly with Jennifer and several of her friends - they all name their vehicles and refer to them by name.

Meaganne did some fiddling around with the outside lights / new outlet / timer this afternoon and think she may have finally figured out how to get them working the way we want!!! HOORAY for Meaganne!!! She's hoping to finish painting the dining room and maybe get the hallway done as well by the end of the weekend.

I would rather get working on figuring out what Christmas stuff we're going to actually get up this year. This darn coughing is really wearing me down though, so I guess I'll have to see what my energy levels are like....

Jo - the cactus plants look lovely! You must have a really green thumb! I can keep them nice and green, but almost never ever get blooms after the first time...

Sandi - Glad that the new car is on the way to its new home, will surely make things easier for you!

Judy - Hope you are feeling better this evening!

Mary - You must be anxious to get all settled in to your new temporary lodgings. Hope the move goes smoothly!

Well, the fireplace is up and running, just needs a couple of minor "tweaks". LOVE it so far! The doors in the basement all got hung today.

The service chap is coming on Friday afternoon to fix the dining room chairs and check out the damaged stuff.... FINALLY!!!


Long day of coughing - no lungs left, they landed on the floor hours ago... emoticon emoticon

Had quite the group today...hope I have enough materials for my xmas plans...

Judy, don't you dare get sick on us now...in your off time, get some rest & take care of you....

Jo, my blog is done for this week!

Congrats on the new tree Judy! Mine is STILL in the basement.... along with almost all the other Christmas decorations.....sigh, sigh sigh!

So far have not watched a single Christmas movie, although Meaganne has PVR'd a bunch of ones we haven't seen before, and of course the tote with all my Christmas DVDs, CDs and cassettes in it is also still downstairs.

Mary - Hope the move goes well and EASILY!!!

Here are the birthday cupcakes, chocolate / sprinkled strawberries from Saturday's kidlet party, as well as the actual birthday cake. Emily asked Meaganne to make the cupcakes and strawberries especially for her friend party.

The theme for both events was RAINBOW

Good am. everyone....Judy so GREAT to see you here...especially with your work schedule....
Haven't got the car yet...the freedom will be using it if the need is there for social eventrs...teehee like our xmas getogether...extra fitness classes for me to PARTICIPATE in & NOT LEAD...& split kms. with my hubby so we don't exceed our limit...gas for my little puttputt should be good...will be calling today to check the status...about the sewing machine, Id love to have your machine if it's a basic...you know me & techy stuff...I have a hard time putting things together but could possibly do some mending during the winter...simple stuff...hemming etc.
Sucks about your overdraft in the tax dept. I did myself in by being too cheap with my bank charges to allow for a couple of OHOHS particularly with auto withdrawals...that was my worry last week when the teller made the clerical errors...
have fun decorating your tree...
Kathy, sorry you are under the weather again...thinking of my daughters growing up years & the parties...yes girls are loud & noisy...I think of those wonderful memories they will have later & how you were a part of them...you know Megs will be their FAVOURITE aunt with all her efforts...
Mary, hope that special parcel arrives for you...today we have more FROSTY weather so i will be LAYERING up for my walk....
Hi Jo! What's up buttercup?

Good Morning
Oh my a day of little girls and there giggles, makes your heart swell up emoticon
I'm sure grandma needed some quiet time after. emoticon Kathy.
Sandi what are you going to do with all that freedom with your new car? Hey I missed my taxes so I am in overdraft today emoticon If you are still needing a sewing machine I'm more then happy to let you have it if it's one you can use.
Nope I am not watching Christmas movies, but I am watch DH replace bulbs in a 7.5 ft pre lite tree emoticon He said it was a good deal for 60$. It is a beautiful tree and I can't wait to decorate it.
Mary I'd so love to have a fire at night. Moving day is fast approaching you. Hope Purolator finds you.
Jo do the kids cuddle in bed with you to watch your movies? So glad you are able to enjoy them. Wish I could mine but they have no routines and are constantly on the move. Thinking I will be taking there stuff to them on Thursday. I have given them my old tree and decorations.
So when and where is the Christmas party? Sunday's are best for me but I will let you know what day's I'm off through the week in December. Oh my it's December this week emoticon
Must get moving. emoticon emoticon

Evening all!

Survived the kidlet birthday party - 9 little girls ranging in age from 3 1/2 to already 5.... All went well until about the last 3/4 hour when the "game" became following each other through Jennifer's squealing / squeaking / screaming shrilly, loudly and pretty much non - stop.

They all loved the vividly multi-coloured insides of the cupcakes - couldn't believe someone could make rainbow coloured cake! Once everyone had left, Jennifer had to head out almost immediately to get Emily up to the north end for a friend's birthday party. Busy busy day for my little gal.

Sick again so have spent much of the last few days coughing my lungs out as well as sleeping in bits and pieces, so have asked Pete no come until Tuesday.

Meaganne has been working on Emily's cake for the family party, all day. One of her planned decoration ideas has been causing major grief - think she's going to try it one more time than maybe go to plan B.

Kathy

A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.

Don't cry because it is over, smile because it happened!

Oh what a nice day, after the dishes were done we got a fire going, out side. It is only 630 now but seems much later. Billy worked from 1000 am until 300 getting his yard, and cabin ready for winter but he never turned his internet on,he left for home at 330. I am using my stick tonight to say Hi to you all.

My behind is thawing out, I am sure it froze out there.

Better beginning to the day today...yesterday correcting errors from others was draining...I then made errors myself!

Determined not to let events undermine me today...All errands ran...a bit of this & that starting outside before any rain comes...almost daylight...

Good morning............wet day ahead. So they say we are to have a lot of snow this year. Just wondering when as the temps are staying above zero on the 14 day forecast.

Kinda nice having a three day week even if I had to deal with the little ones and there mom. Yes ladies I do really need time away from kids. I am starting to settle into my new routines slowly, sleeping better, can say no to food easier.

Mary it's nice that its such a short distance to move. Still a lot of work I'm sure.

Jo crazy people make us smile and one living next door is even better. She must have let her inner child come out and play.

Kathy can't wait to see the renos.

Sandi glad the you had fun with the sticks and the group enjoyed.

Off to get ready for work. Have a great day all. emoticon

Sandi enjoy the mild weather/day!
Camp closes Dec15. we are going up the road about 6 min.

I will have unlimited internet for the 2 months out of camp.

It is great that you and the Mister like cruises but it is just one thing I have never been interested in doing. All that water just make me queasy. Then all the food poising stuff from so many ships. Nope, the whole idea just scares me.

Where, are you getting your music from now?

hey, hey, hey!!!

Spent a good portion of yesterday preparing an extra xmas CD...seems I have 4 DEC. classes this year to prepare for...gals are looking forward to it...my classes have doubled in size since last year so prep is paying off...I am enjoying it even with the extra work....Head is now clear after 2 days of HE!!!!!&%$@ You know!

Judy, hang in there girl, those kiddies do EVENTUALLY grow up & fly the nest...perhaps DISTANCE will help make their trials less of one for you....Trust me, I understand...planning a trip to TO for a xmas in advance seeing the sights etc. with my nearest & dearest...still hope she can come to St. Thomas for xmas though...

KATHY...you little dickens...how did you get by without us celebrating your special day...we will have to have a PROPER toast when we get together for our holiday shindig...BELATED HAPPY BIRTHDAY BUDDY!!!! Those additions you plan for your reno would be ICING on the CAKE, right? Looking forward to seeing Meags creation of your special little granddaughters birthday....

Mary & Jo, how are you both? mary, will be leaving her seasonal home in a couple of weeks, I'm sure...have you got your computer stuff ironed out? where are you going next?

Jo, thinking of our winter vacay plans...Dad canceled due to no travel insurance coverage because of the recent hospitalization & then hubby was trying to talk me into a change to a cruise plan for the winter instead of the Dominican which we will confirm next week...told him he was NUTS considering our recent car purchase...& he isn't hiding a lottery win that I know about!!! emoticon emoticon

Back to some movement today after the chief wakes & we get outside to BURLAP the shrubs while the mildness is here...also outside tapped need to be turned off & mini fridges defrosted...

CHERRIO ALL!!! emoticon

Morning emoticon nice 8 hr sleep and feeling rested.
So the child is back into cadets and wasn't happy to here that I expect him to go to cadet camp this summer. Guess he shouldn't have been skipping classes and lying to me. He has an in school suspension Friday for not showing up for a few detentions and not going to get his extra help in science at lunch. GRRRRR.

Wow Judy - You HAVE had a rough time of it with the offspring and grands - glad thay are all at their own home now. You really need a break from both family AND work too!!

Mary - Sounds like you got a lot accomplished today. When do you leave the park for your friend's place?

Jo - How is all this dampness in the air affecting your joints? My hands, feet and knees are really really sore, so I just bet you're really feeling it too.

Sandi - Where are you? Hope all is well with you! Glad that your seniors enjoyed those rhythm sticks you made them!

No reno work again until Friday - electricians are back here then to try to figure out what is going wrong with the outside outlet they installed. Today was mostly about more mud on the fireplace, plus painting doors and trim downstairs - also trying to figure out what is going on with the smoke alarm / carbon monoxide thingy that was installed downstairs along with a few other minor things that weren't quite done yet.

Meaganne and I headed out late this afternoon and got a bunch of errands done - like the new sticker for the van which expired this past Sunday emoticon emoticon So, now I am legal again!!!

Also picked up Shawn's birthday gift for Emily as requested - since as usual, he forgot to look after it in time to do it himself..... and he's supposed to be the bright one of the bunch! Plus Meaganne got most of the stuff she needs for Emily's birthday cakes. Kidlet part is on Saturday and the family party will be Monday, which is actually her birthday. Cannot believe that she is already turning FIVE!!!

Pete and I designed and measured for the custom built ins I'm hoping I can afford to have him do for me - won't know for sure until he's had a chance to price it out for me, but keeping my fingers crossed! Irregardless, they won't be done in time for Christmas - he just doesn't have the time right now, but I can make do with what is here for the short term at least.

Kathy
