Happy Anniversary

2 awesome kids, 3 cities, 7 moves, 1 miscarriage, a few pounds more,
1 separation, the loss of his mom, being broke (a few times), lots and lots of laughs, good friends, nieces and nephew, sisters, brother, in laws, weddings... These are just a few things my 9 awesome married years with George have been like.

We got married when we were both 19. I know a lot of people thought we were crazy.. Looking back on it I think we were a little LOL. I wouldn't change a thing! I would love to post some pictures of our wedding.. But we don't have a scanner. Maybe I will ask George to take a few to work so I can have them on our computer. I would also love to post a picture of the two of us.. But I think we only have one picture together and there is NO WAY he would let me put it on here LOL. He has a thing about getting his picture taken, and doesn't want his face on the internet. For a computer guy.. He sure is scared of the internet!! His real name isn't George for those of you that don't know.. LOL. Oh well.. That's why I love him.. Quirky guy that he is.

My mom comes in 7 sleeps. I was talking to her this weekend and she let the cat out of the bag that my
sister is coming with her to visit!!!! I am so happy they will both be here! Char's visit is going to be 4 sleeps and 3 days. Our visit will be short but very fun. We will be doing a lot of tourist stuff.. Which is good cause I still feel like one here. She is coming to The Hip with us. I cant wait to have girl time with my mom and Char. The kids still don't know my mom is coming and they are gonna freak when they see Auntie!!

that's it for now...

Watching the game

Marlies lost 4-2 but we all had a good time. George was late getting there because as he would put it "work blew up" so he had to deal with the problem before he could meet us.
The kids are both off from school today so I got to sleep in which is nice. I have been fighting a migraine since yesterday so sleeping is always a good thing.
Its George's Saturday to work tomorrow so not much happening this weekend.

When are they going to smash the cars??

Happy Birthday Linda!!

We went to Monster Jam on Saturday. And Amy kept asking when they were going to smash the cars? I was a bit surprised how into it she was. I probably shouldn't have been because she loves to watch Monster Trucks on TV with us. We had a long day but a fun one. Even if the guy sitting behind be poured his Pepsi down my back!
Of course Jarret loved it. He was cheering on his favorite trucks. There were some lasers, music and a lot of hype.. Good times!
Amy fell asleep on the subway home and I left her toque and mits on the train.. GRRRR!!
Here are some pictures..
.... Well maybe not.. blogger wont let me I will try later

Catwalk Model fall (twice)

Thanks Char and Kenny for sending this to me. I have watched this over and over and over. I showed George last night and I did the old man laugh again. This is great!


I have been trying to write something all frickin day!! I have been trying to respond to everyone's comments all frickin day!! What is up? I had something going.. Then I deleted it. Tried again.. Deleted it. I couldn't find the words for some reason!! I ALWAYS find the words. Who knows right??

Anyway.. The lasagna turned out pretty good if I do say so myself. We had leftovers which is always a bonus!!

Jarret came home the other day and told me he signed up for choir! I am so excited! He has a holiday concert on February 15th which he will be singing in. That happends to be the same week my MOMMY is coming for a visit. That is in 19 days btw!!
Can you tell I am excited?? We aren't telling the kids. She is coming in the afternoon and she will pick Amy up from school with us and be at the bus stop when Jarret gets off. They are going to poop themselves.

We are going to Monster Jam tomorrow. When Jarret was 3 we went and on the way home he threw up in the back seat of the car. The fumes got to him. We will be in The Rogers Center so the ventilation will be 100% better and its a lot bigger.

Thank you

I just want to start off by saying thanks to my new blogging friends for stopping by and leaving comments. I have been reading everyone's blog who is on my brothers blogroll since our Emma was diagnosed. I know I will never know what it is like to live with Diabetes but getting to read your stories and experiences gives me, I think more of an understanding. Thank you to all of you for being there for Chris, Denise and Emma!!

Ok.. choking back my tears here ( I am a very very emotional person btw.. I can cry at the drop of a hat).

Amy is sitting with me and wants to "type somefing" so here it is:

uytrewqazxcdcvbnmmjhgf ghytr
It says "please come to my bday party so you can come" That is exactly what she said.

I will be making my very first EVER Lasagna tonight. I have been married for almost 9 years and I have never made one before. So wish me luck.

Stupid cookies

I swear the cookie gods are against me! I thought I would be a good mommy and make some chocolate chip cookies last night. So I follow the recipe got the kids to help pour the chocolate chips in the batter very pleased with myself and.. They are complete crap!! I was so upset last night. I don't know what happened. If you don't recall click here to see what happened last time I tried to bake cookies. I know I still need new baking sheets. But I don't think that was the entire problem last night.

I love my kids. They each had one and I apologized for them and they both told how good they were and not to worry about it. Amy said she still loves them and still loves me!! Such good kids I have!!

I was a bit cranky after that.. But its only cookies right?? I think I will just buy the ready made cookie dough in the tube!!

Its been a while since I have put an update on my weightloss. During Christmas my weight pretty much stayed the same. Maybe gained a pound.... Or two.

A few firsts..

Took the kids skating on Saturday for the very first time. They had such a good time. They both started out a little wobbly.. But before we knew it they were whipping around like nobody's business!!

Also they went on a Street Car for the first time. They have been dying to get on one since moving here. Very cool.

It is also the first day back at school. Amy has been counting down all week. She went to bed so well last night. I don't remember the last time there wasn't an argument about bedtime.. And she fell asleep pretty darn fast. Usually we hear her singing and playing in her bed for about an hour if not more some nights.

Jarret not so thrilled about heading back.. I'm sure he will change his mind once he's there and sees his friends again. He had a crap load of homework over the holiday. He had 12 pages double sided he had to do.. I don't get it.. Why do that to a kid on their "holiday"? I could understand getting the usual one page. Anyway.. In true Jarret fashion he started Saturday and finished last night.. Plus he is missing a page.. So off to a great start.

I haven't mentioned my weight loss in a while.. That is because I wasn't as strict with my program over the holidays. I didn't go CRAZY but I allowed myself to indulge more then usual. The good news.. I only gained about 1 pound maybe 1.5!! Not too bad If I do say so myself.. And I do!! Right after Boxing Day I started back on the program like I use to.. And I am back down to the weight I was before Christmas. Now I will start my exercise program again.. Plus the walking to and from Amy's school will get me energize and motivated again.

Well.. That's about it for now..

New Years Eve Pics.. A lot of them

Jarret waiting for the countdown.. He so cute!!
Amy, Me and Jarret on our way to the party
Me and Jarret.. Not the best pic of me.. But oh well
Jarret on the ice rink at Nathan Phillips Square
Jarret and Amy trying to keep dry
Blogger doesn't want to let me post more pictures.. So they will have to wait. We had a good time out the other night. The kids were amazing considering it was wet. I don't think I have ever seen that many people in one spot before. Walking to the subway after was a job in itself. It really didn't take us long to get home.. Jarret stayed up all the way home but Amy fell asleep on the second subway home.. She is pretty heavy in a winter jacket and dead to the world.. George took over cause I was dropping her from laughing sooo bloody hard at him for falling on the bus.. The bus driver hit the breaks just as George was getting up from his seat and he went flying!! I think it was probably one of the funniest things I have seen in a long time. I have this thing with people falling you see... ah forget it.. for those of you who know this about me.. it was pretty funny. It makes up for me not being able to laugh at people falling on the ice.. Since there isn't any here!! For those that don't know me.. I really am not a mean person.. I just cant help myself from laughing when people slip or fall..
