Well another day gone by.  Had a grrrrrreat sleep last night.  Laid my head down about midnight and slept through the alarm for 15 minutes but luckily I had set it for 6:30 last night because 6:45 was too late I wasn't crawling out of bed until 7 which meant I was rushing too much and I hate to rush! I'm anticipating tomorrow because I ...

Everybody ...

So it seems the government wants my input on how to change the subsidy system.  I don't know if they actually mean it or if they are just trying to make it LOOK like they care...who knows.  I'm still going to try my best to give really good information with the hope that it will make a difference in our province:) So I'm not going to ...

THank the Lord for Freedom of Speech in this country.  I wrote to the minister of Childrens services about the child care subsidy program and the rate of pay for daycare employees in our province and they actually contacted me!!!  Can you believe it, somebody from government actually phoned me in less than a week!  I don't know why ...

So I didn't do much out of the ordinary today.  Started my memory page for my dads party and did up some thank you's for Bri's friends that came to her party.  I also printed off some pictures of them so she can include them in the envelope...they turned out really nice! I'm so tired these days, by about 10pm I feel like I can barely ...

Back At It

So of course I was all tired today.  Kiara is getting a molar and has a bad rash.  She was really uncomfortable last night and was up most of the night.  When morning rolled around (and after I dragged my own butt out of bed) I had to get her up.  Needless to say, she was NOT a happy little camper.  When I dropped her off ...

Well today is my dad's 65th birthday.  65 years WOW!!!!  Thats amazing to me.  In my 26 years of life 65 seems like years and years away, I'll bet for my dad though, it has gone by so quickly. So on the 11th (which is also my husbands b'day) I will throw my dad a surprise party.  We're having it at a friends restaurant.  I' ...

So at my work theres always people talking about stuff.  I try not to get in the loop because I"m only there half time and really life is just much too short to be involved in who did this or that or whatever.  Sometimes we get dragged into the loop against our will though. The government has decided to give schools some extra money. ...

Today I went to see my Grandmother who is 93.  She lives in a nursing home and was just placed there this year.  All my life growing up I never really liked visiting her because she was quite negetive and didn't really let us have any fun.  Of all things, my grandma even hated jokes!!  We always knew she loved us but she really ...

Hahahah I get a kick out of the fact that people are STILL wondering what the letters said.  I have hesitated writing the gory details here because I wasn't sure if that would be proper.  But since I'm still being questioned about it I figure it must be okay.  I'm not sure if your eyes would be ready to read this..... And to the one ...

Well I survived another birthday party.  Actually I really do enjoy doing them.  As I was growing up my mom used to do the best parties for me.  We'd play all sorts of games and she always had great food.  Back then everyone came in frilly dresses and hair all done up for EVERY party.  Now the kids don't do that so much. ...
