Moving on .

I've been blogging for a few years now. Sometimes sporadically sometimes daily, but almost regularly. I have finally separated from XSU and starting to live a new life on my own. The original blog helped me get through the painful process of the end of the marriage, along with some bumpy roads dealing with a critically ill child in the midst of the end of marriage mess. Now this blog will see me through the new paths and adventures that life has to offer. Restructuring my life. My way. My experiences, ventings, musings on that whole big and not so big deal.

Sunday Snippets

Scrap & Spa next weekend. My weekend with the girls - massage, talk chick flicks and scrap booking. I am in charge of jello shots. Apparently most women over the age of 30 have never had any. The 16 yr old tells me it's best to make them with the blue jello because it is raspberry flavoured.

I need to decide - Garmin or Ipod Touch? I will take a poll on my Facebook page. When I mention that I drove around in a big circle on a road in the other end of the city yesterday for an hour and at least 40 K only to get back to my starting pointing; then I took another road and got to where I needed to be in 5 minutes; I might sway the vote.

RJ has been gone less than two weeks, has spent at least $350 and wants another $100 to buy a one of a kind dress for prom. She's in grade 11 and going to prom. She's not even been to Paris yet. The agreement was 35 euros a week. Her father was supposed to put money into her account Friday AM, taking into account the 6 hour time difference. He put it in at 4PM on Saturday. I told her to send him an email. Thank goodness she is back at school this week. Puts the stop to the cash drain.

Snow is melting - it's above zero. Weird. It looks like March is coming in like a lamb. You know what that means for the end of the month!

I am probably the only Canadian in the world not watching the hockey game today. To some it makes me less of a patriot. But I am making cookies and transferring my CDs (a thankless job) to limewire instead just in case I go with the ipod touch.

I went to a funeral for a still born baby on Thursday. It was a special service for infants. There can be nothing sadder than seeing a teeny tiny baby in a beautiful white christmation gown lying still in a teeny tiny casket, and parents closing the casket. Absolutely the most heart wrenching event I have ever experienced. I have to admire the great faith of my friends and the way they have been dealing with the loss of their little one. The church was full.

Now go hug your kids.

that is so sad about the baby. One lady in our church was so devistated for a long time.

So RJ is about to learn a harsh lesson in budgeting huh? LOL or will the old man cave in then grumble to you about it?

garmin for driving for sure. but how often does that come up and can it be fixed by just printing out a google map ahead of time? We are debating this same issue. so far we have not purchased. also, we are limping by on using the iPhone map application which you would not get from the iTouch while on the road.

I have not had jello shots. and blue puke just doesn't sound good. Thank goodness I drink like an adult and don't get to that state any more.

have fun on your spa weekend.
