Where Oh Where Can She Be?
Since it's been so long since I've posted on my blog, I've decided to write about the most recent happenings and go backwards. But first let me explain. You may be wondering what has kept me from my beloved writtings. Well, there were a few things actually. In the last few weeks of my class (which ended on March 30th) I had to prepare, not one (as was the understanding) but two classes per week. The ladies that had started coming wanted to make up for lost time (all those times nobody showed up!) and wanted to come Wednesday nights and Saturday afternoons. Then Brian hurt his back trying to prevent a snowmobile from tipping over (Benjamin and Nathan were on it). It did not tip and the boys were fine but it set Brian back (ha ha pun intended). However, I didn't think it's was so funny having to do all the dishes (the chore that Brian usually helps with) all the time along with all the other things that he could not longer do. THEN came our last foodmail order and our 20 lbs of meat came mostly thawed. So I went on a cooking bonanza and made all kinds of meals as not to let the meat spoil (not to mention doing all the dishes accompanying all the cooking). And as you can imagine after spending 4 days in the kitchen, it took me over a week to catch up on life (laundry, other cleaning, preparing for Benjamin's birthday coming up etc), not to mention that I've started teaching Sunday school for the kids in our church (that's for another blog post...), I'm planning our "vacation" in May including my sister's bridal shower, we are still having the young girls over once a week and I try to exercise daily. So I would like to shoot all those people who said to me that I was going to have "all this time" before I moved to Coral Harbour. Let me tell you there is NEVER a dull moment in my life. I love it here but I don't have "all this time". :o)
