Hello Everyone

So, the kids have been home from Toronto for about 2.5 days...and they have done NOTHING but fight and whine and complain and just well, be kids....over tired, jetlagged, pain in the butt kids!!!

Any takers, I thought about freecycle, but no one was interested...LOL
Okay they are not that is actually nice to have them home again...believe it or not, I missed the little boogers.

In other news, I have been offered a 7 month assignment in our CPP/EI Rulings Division...I do not know exactly what I will be doing (other than making decisions as to whether some one is a contractor or an employee) but at least it is NOT collections!!! I am a bit nervous, but excited too....keep your fingers crossed for me. I have grown rather fond of my team I will miss them...but I am only a few floors up soo....

Let me see...what else.....kiddies are going back to school soon....WOW that was fast...I am almost excited about it....and I'm not the one going to school....LOL.

Okay, I think that is me done....hope you all have a great day, and I will blog when I remember to....**grin**

OMG....okay I am apologizing now for my extreme pissy mood!!!!

It just too me two million years and toggling back and forth in order to get onto this stupid blog.....hence the reason I tend to shy away from things that require 80 different email accounts plus the 950 passwords you need....GGGGRRRRRRRRRRRRR (seriously...took me over an hour to get back in....)

Okay, well that is out of my is everyone? I feel like a bag of dog doo...but thought I would take the opportunity to stop in and say has been a very very long time since I blogged...sorry gang.

Carole....sorry to hear they are canceling your show...Chris and I have had that happen so often, we are now afraid to like any now we say "Oh no that show sucks..." and the to our little club...teehee.

Okay, I need to keep this, Vegas was GREAT....really HOT and we did a TON of walking....and I mean a TON....we would sit down for dinner at the end of the day, and then have trouble getting back up again...(sad really...). We saw 4 shows: The Titanic Exhibit, Cirq (Mystiere), Popovich (a pet and comedy show), and V The Ultimate Variety Show....

Kids are doing well in Toronto...but they are ready to come home...they miss us sooo much...and heck, we actually miss them too....Iain sang American Pie over the phone to me last cute!!

We have begun the "Room Transformation" for Iain's room. We are making it a surprise for when he comes home. Chris has drawn Link, Sonic, and will be doing Shadow next, I will be working on a Pacman pic and painting his bed and dresser...I hope he likes it. We have added a few touches to Alli's room (but hers was pretty much done when we moved in). We added a Tinkerbell boarder, and a bunch of sparkly jewels on her bookcase, and window frame. I will also be painting the toybox and making it look nice in her room.

Now for the grand finale....I feel like eyeballs literally feel like they are being boiled in my head, my face is on fire, I feel like some one took a bat to me and attempted to tenderize tummy is okay, but I have not felt much like eating...and my brain is pounding....BUT I am hoping the mass amounts of sleep will clear all that up...I have to go to work tomorrow....and a Paige Party to attend on being said....I love you all...hope your day is well, and see you all on Saturday.

Well....we went to the Maple Ridge SPCA today....we were recommended by the "Cross Our Paws" people. There is a lovely German Shorthaired Pointer there....and she has been placed 3 times...poor thing.

She has been returned because of separation anxiety....she does not like to be left alone. She was wonderful. We took her for a walk and played in the park with her. Iain LOVES her, and she is wonderful. Chris and Sherry and most likely Doug are going to go see her tomorrow morning (with Iain). I want her...BUT....I don't know if I am ready. I am nervous you know??...I like things the way they are, and with getting a dog, it is one more life I am responsible for. Sure Chris can take her for her power runs in the daytime, and we could do the walks in the evening...but I get home late enough as it is....sooooo I am not too sure. I think I am just scared or something....not sure, but we will see what Chris and his parents think.

It was funny because I was saying things like: It would be perfect to get her now because I will be off for 2 week and could really spend time with her...BUT we are going away the next week so the is just not fair"....and they (Doug and Sherry) would say..."Oh well you know, we could take care of her, we are usually home" Or I would say, Ya Chris leaves at 1:30 and I don't get home until 6:00 so that is a long time for her to be alone...and Sherry would say " Oh well you know, I could just keep her upstairs or leave the door open when you are gone".

Very sweet that they would like to help so does sound great....but I am still scared. Why? I dunno....not sure at all why. I do want her....but I just don't know if I am ready.

Okay...and on that note....Iain's last day of school (and last day at Kanaka Creek) was today. He did AWESOME. I really was expecting many many tears...but nope, not one...he is a bit sad...but he did really well. Alex's last day at Kid Zone is tomorrow....we shall see how that goes. After will be 5 more sleeps and they are off to the big TO.

Right....that is me done...have a good night...and chat again some time soon.
Question: Why am I able to comment on some people's bogs...but not others?
Some of them tell me to sign in with my MSN something something...and I don't think I have that....hmm

Wednesday, July 30, 2008 again with the suckage...but I do have some stuff to share.

I was in the running for a Team Leader job at work....and I honestly thought I completely and utterly bombed it...BUT turns out I was only 2.5 marks away from passing. I went for my individual feedback and we super poured over the exam to try and find those 2.5 marks....we found 1/2 mark BUT the last 2 were not to be found....**sigh** I lost out by 2 little teenie tiny marks...booohooo.

Now...on to serious things...seriously....why oh why...WHY do periods have to be soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo freakin painful???? UH I cannot believe it right now!!! I never went through this BEFORE I had what up? It is like an evil, cruel, monster jumping into my body and torturing it...(poor body - it cannot get to my mind, cuz I think I lost that back in grade 8 or 9).....please please please make it stop....oh and why do they say MEN are the stronger sex anyway....can any of THEM bleed for a week and still live??? I don't think so.....but don't tempt this state I am up for a challenge....MEN...any takers???????....yah so like I git the whole "cleansing your system thing" but who asked ME if I wanted it cleaned out? I'm good....maybe I want to clean it out when I'm good and than my mom telling me to clean my room....and WHY do we crave salt and chocolate when our "friend" comes to town (okay I crave those on any good day anyway...but I'm rambling here....) I always know it is coming on when I need need need SALT and CHOCOLATE...and yes even together.

....and speaking of working PEEVED am I to read this stupid study that some stupid scientists decided they needed to the half hour power circuit that I do with the kids apparently does NOTHING to help me lose weight!!!! Oh sure it helps with the fitness level...but who cares about that???? So we apparently need a minimum of 55 minutes 5 days a week!!!! WHO ASKED THEM ANYWAY?????????

Right...sorry about that...I think I feel better now....I gotta....go wash something.

Good Morning Everyone;

Okay so far I am sucking at keeping up my blog...sorry. To be honest, I keep forgetting. Oh well, I'm here now so I guess I will post.

Hmmm....not really too sure what to say....I am freaking out cuz my babies are going away without us in 8 days....oh man that is coming up fast!!!

Not really much else for now, I must hop in shower and head to work...but maybe...just maybe, something fun and interesting will happen on my way to work....then I can say (cuz I have always wanted to say)....a funny thing happened to me on my way to work....

Now I must go forth and find that funny thing....or strange....that works too.
K...all you all have a great day...and I will try to remember to blog today.

Cioa for now
