I finally did it...

... and bought Amy a pair of ugly Crocs! I actually like them on her. Jarret wanted a pair but George and I did some fast talking.. then I felt bad cause I think he really wanted a pair. So I think we might go back to buy a pair for him. We will see.

Amy loves them. She kept thanking me for them yesterday. We went to Honest Ed's and bought some stuff for really cheap. It is a fun place to go.

Well.. I am so very tired lately. Not sure why. I think I am fighting a cold. My throat keeps wanting to hurt and my chest feels full. I hope I don't get sick before my trip home. That would really suck!

Here are pics of Amy and her new shoes.. and her BEAUTIFUL hat she HAD to buy from Honest Ed's. It was a whole 99 cents.

I never do these.. but I felt like it today.

I will be in Winnipeg in 13 days! I don't think you realize how frickin excited I am!! I cant wait to get my hands on all the kids! I have a lot of kids I miss in Winnipeg! Emma, Jakey, Kelsey, Jaden, Collin, Taylor, Holden and new baby.. Micah! I also put in my order for my friend Miriam to have her baby before I get out there so I can hold him (they know they are having a boy)! Her due date is actually that weekend.. so a few days before would be great.. thanks Mir!!

I am working 10-6 next week- Thanks again Mary! Its going to be so nice to be home by 6:30 instead of 8:30 or 9! The kids will actually be in bed at a decent time!

Anyway.. I am off to eat some breakfast.. and I think we are going out all day (Once George gets his lazy butt up!)

Lake Ontario..
Everyone waiting for Fireworks
Me and the girl
Amy in her tutu

Back to work today after the long weekend. Not fun. I so don't want to go back to work, but I guess a girl's gotta do what a girls gotta do.
I am off to get ready..

As my previous post stated I booked my flight for my trip to Winnipeg for
The JDRF Walk To Cure Diabetes. It will be a very short visit but so worth it. I need to see Emma get tested. I need to see what she goes through. I know I will never know entirely.. but I will have somewhat of an idea.
I want to be tested. Do you think Emma will test me? I hope she does.. and I hope she can show me how to be brave.

Today George and the kids and I went to see Cirque De Avaia. It was so good. We had excellent seats.

Well.. that's it for now. I am on George's lap top and I am so not liking it. The my wrists hurt the keys are too close. But I do like sitting in front of the TV and on here.. maybe I could get use to it?

My flight to Winnipeg is booked!!!
Sitting here at work.. bored out of my skull. I hope I don't get into trouble for posting here.. but I don't see how it is a big deal. There are no calls coming in right now.. and if they do I will answer!

I still have an hour until I can go home. Its a long weekend here in Canada (for all my US friends) I can not wait to get out of here! Its not busy.. I'm just anxious!

Jarrets concert last night was cute. His class did a dance and song about the Ocean. They each had a line before the song. They said what they liked about the environment. They said it in English and French. He said he liked waves (the oceans waves) LMAO!! Too cute.

Amy sat on the floor in the front and totally taunted him! He wasn't singing all that loud and I guess that pissed her off.. she was yelling "thing Jarret thing!!" as loud as she could. Then as he went by she was grabbing at his leg!! OMG.. the more I think about it the funnier it was. George and I were just laughing.. it was so funny.

Have a great weekend everyone.. see you on Facebook!!

Crocs. They are so ugly. I swore I would never ever buy a pair, and I wont.. for myself. I am so going to buy a pair for Amy. Is this wrong? My own personal opinion is they are ugly.. but I am ok with Amy wearing them. I don't get me sometimes.

Anyway.. I did something else I swore I would never do. I joined Facebook. WTF? I had no interest at all joining it.. but I caved and now I am addicted to it. George was the same way.. he doesn't join stuff like that.. but he kept getting invites from people and he thought he would check it out.. now he is always on it too. Anyone else on Facebook?

Amy update: She is feeling a bit better. She is still coughing quite a bit. Her antibiotics are done and she is still taking Pretnizone. She HATES that stuff.. but its needed.

Jarret has a concert tomorrow at school. I LOVE stuff like this. I am switching my shift with a lady from work (Thanks Mary) so will be done at 6pm! NICE!!

Well I am off to get ready for the day.. have a great day to all of you!!

Happy Mothers Day

Happy Mothers Day Mom! Have a great day.. I wish I was there.

Happy mothers day to all you moms out there. Enjoy your day.

Just an update.. I am feeling much better all around. Thank GOD this didn't last. I felt like shit up until about 3 hours ago.

We went to the FC game yesterday and they actually won!! They have played I think 4 games and lost them all.. not even a goal scored.. until yesterday. I am telling you the fans at a professional soccer game are the most rowdy bunch of any sport I have seen in person. It was such a fun atmosphere. We will HAVE to go again soon.

After the game we went to Emergency for Amy. In the car had a nasty asthma attack. She couldn't stop coughing and she was wheezing pretty bad. They took her right away and she had 3 Ventolin masks and pretnezone. A chest x-ray showed she had the start of pneumonia in one of her lungs. She was up most the night crying cause she couldn't breath. I tried to give her her puffer but it was not going over well with her. She finally calmed down and went to sleep.. but an hour later in my bed cause she was up with it again. She is feeling a bit better today (she should $140 in prescriptions should do something right?) but not 100%. It will take a while but she is a strong girl.

Anyway.. for mothers day we went to see Spiderman 3 at Imax. It was pretty cool. I got Jarrets present he made at school and a framed picture of the kids for my desk at work. Happy mom here. Jarrets made gift is a cd case with a picture he did out of clay. Does that make sense? I will get a picture and post it soon. Its really cute.

Well.. I promised the kids we would make smores tonight so I better get moving.. its getting close to bed time.

Have a good night

My turn

I got whatever the kids had! Gross!! It hit me like a ton of bricks. I was fine at work.. then all of a sudden BAM feeling like I was going to hurl all over my desk. At least I was able to hang on until I got home.. unlike the kids that just let it go whenever they feel like it! lol.

I got home at 6:45 last night (early shift again.. woo hoo) and was in bed until 8:45 this morning. I ended up not only with an upset stomach but also a raging migraine. I am feeling better today but the head is a bit sore. We are going to The Toronto FC game this afternoon.. I am trying to get my ass moving so I can go. I don't want to miss it. Its the second home game and free tickets... cant miss it.

This will be our first full summer in Toronto.. and we have had 3 days of humid hot weather! We already bought a window air conditoner and George and Jarret went to Home Depot to get a fan and some supplies to seal the conditioner in the window. All will be good this summer.

Amy gave me my mothers day present she made at school already. So cute. Its a cut out teapot and it says:

Since you are so special to me
I wanted to make you a pot of tea!
Love Amy.

And it came with a tea bag.

So flippin cute. Its the first thing from her from school. She was so cheesed out when she gave it to me.

I hope all you moms have a wonderful day tomorrow!

Happy Mothers Day!

Whatever Amy had.. now Jarret has it. On our way out to get Christian (my brother in law as seen in the picture on the right) from the airport and this bug decided to strike in the elevator. We got off on a one of the floors so he can "lose his lunch" as Jarret so nicely put it.

George and Amy continued onto the airport while I looked after my sick boy.

So our weekend started off pretty good. Friday George and I took the kids to The Playdium. I don't know if you know what it is but its pretty cool. Its a HUGE arcade where you purchase tokens and play games to win tickets (they also have Go Karts, Batting cages, and Mini Golf) When you are done with the tokens you cash in your tickets and buy stuff for the points you accumulate. We ended up with 1100 points! Amy bought herself a Dora The Explorer tea set for 600 points. So she was done. Then Jarret bought some stuff. We had a really good night. We were late once again.. but it was fun.

Yesterday was quiet. George worked then when he got home we headed off to Walmart to buy a new burner for our BBQ and then a propane tank. We made pork and beef shkabobs(sp??) with some red and green bell peppers. So so good. I am so happy to have a BBQ back. That is all we are going to do this summer.

Well I better go check on Jarret. He says his stomach is OK now. Hopefully he is better so he can go to school tomorrow.

Its 5:30 in the morning.. and I am awake for the day.

I have been up since 5:00 laying in bed trying to go back to sleep.. but no such luck. So I decided to crawl out of bed and make some coffee.

I am not going to the office today but going to one of our branches for job shadowing. Everyone that is new has to go. I am actually looking forward to it. I have to be there at 8:15. And when I get there I go with one of the drivers for his morning route. Then in the afternoon hang out at the branch and see how things are run. Should be interesting.

I am stressing on .. how long it will take to bus it down there. Its not close to me at all. I am stressing on where EXACTLY it is. I have directions and what subway and bus to take.. but once I step foot off the bus.. ???? One of the ladies that went last week gave me some pretty good directions.. so lets hope I can follow them.

I am going to be so exhausted by the time I get home today. The nice thing about starting early is that I am home early. I am suppose to be there until 4:00pm today. But the lady that went last week was sent home early. NICE!


Not much happening this weekend around here. I think its suppose to be nice so I hope we can take the kids somewhere. Maybe to High Park? We'll see.

I am off to get my coffee.. have a great day everyone!!

First thank you to everyone for the well wishes for Amy. She is still feeling a bit punky but she was able to go to school today.
The above pictures are from Sunday night. George and I took the kids to see Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. It was the late show.. it started at 9:30pm so it ended up being a late night. But it was worth it. Once in a while wont kill them. Yes.. Amy is in her pj's!
God.. it is so expensive to take your family to the movies! To buy the admission tickets was $50 plus you have to get popcorn and drinks.. Crazy how much it is for a family night out. This is why its very seldom we take the kids to the theater. I love doing but it hurts the wallet a bit...
Well.. I am off to watch the last of the Senators game..

Ice cream face
They don't look 'measly' in this picture Shannon :)

Amy.. again
Jarret.. this is what Jarret looks like ALL the time.. mouth open and words pouring out..
Started out my week with a sick kid yesterday. Amy was not feeling well and she came into our room and was laying down. She was wheezing because of her asthma and had a fever. So I gave her her puffer and some Tylenol. Next thing I know she was puking all over my just washed sheets and comforter. All over me.. all over her.
Poor baby. She has never thrown up before.. well if you don't count baby spit up. She is pretty pale today but feeling better. I had to go across the street to the Laundromat before work. Then I made it to work at exactly 12 on the nose. George had the day off so he was home with her.
I am off to get ready for the day.
Have a good one
