i'm a thousand miles away, but girl tonight you look so pretty, yes you do.

It's six o'clock on Friday night and both my guys are sleeping so I'm on the computer! Russ came home from work early today so he could have a nap and Lucas' buddy tired him out with all the playing today. I am such a happy camper because I had my second favourite little guy with me all afternoon! I think Trystan and Lucas pulled out every single toy we own...and played with each of them for about 30 seconds before moving on.

I got lots of dishes done today when the boys were entertaining themselves. Plus I spent way too much money at the grocery store this morning and got my TOTW done and posted plus I finished another layout that I think might just be sweet-arse enough to submit to Canadian Scrapbooker. Look at me go! I'm a super lady today! I've pretty much had a head ache all week and have been feeling sick, but today that all went away and I was productive and felt great! FINALLY!

Tomorrow I get to scrapbook with some of my favourite people...and I'm almost finished the gifts I'm making for the birthday girls among them. The gifts in question are super rad, and I will have to remember to take pictures of them before I wrap them up so I can post them after they are opened. SO excited! Am thinking of other special things to make, but we'll see what I have time for tonight. Am also bringing my hummus dip for snacking on, but I promise to omit some garlic!

My dining room table got cleaned this week only to have another mess get dumped on it today. I just can't keep it clean for the life of me...not even with all this extra storage I've given myself. Argh!

Does any one know a really great place to buy appliances? I definitely need a new fridge, and I'm thinking I should get a new dishwasher soon too. My fridge is permanently set to "uber icy" and I'm sick of throwing out frozen vegetables in the crisper drawers. I mean really. I'm thinking one of those new ones with the bottom freezer...ooh aah! You can tell you're an old married couple when...buying new kitchen appliances gets your blood moving!

For dinner tonight...left overs. Lucas and I eat left overs. I eat them because I feel guilty about having them in the first place. And Lucas eats them because I put them on his plate and sit him down in front of them. Russel does not eat leftovers. Not without a fight! So tonight, since he is sleeping through the supping hour, he gets what he gets. And if all else fails, there's leftover pizza which no one in the history of mankind should ever turn down. I'm just saying.

And since I know some people that only read my blog if there are pictures...

  1. Nice to see you back!

    Question: Is the Thomas bed still up for grabs? We are going to do our best to have Kaed's new room ready for a little Christmas reveal and I'm thinking we need to get the bed before the snow starts to fall/collect. Let me know. Thanks!

  2. Hey...just stopping by. Thanks for the mail, I hope you got the one I sent you...


I would love to hear from you, even if it's just a quick "Hello"...Comments make my day, dontcha know!
