Post 66~ BlackBerry Merlot

Yum!! I am enjoying my first glass of our home brewed blackberry Merlot and it is gooood. A little on the sweet side but much better then I was expecting. We bought the wine kit on sale a few months ago and we ended up with 30 bottles @ $0.60 each!!...well with the cost of the bottles and corks it's probably closer to $1.25 each but still we are saving a bunch of money. These 30 bottles will last me for over a year .... unless my FIL comes to visit :-D

So this is the week we are going to Vancouver, Anna's appointments start Wednesday. I'm not looking forward to the actually travel but I can't wait to hold my new little niece. I briefly held the neighbours grandson (2 months) and my heart melted, I almost (ALMOST!!! but not quite) wanted to have another baby, I bet that feeling will be even more stronger after seeing Bella.

Mike got an e-mail from Dell, My Laptop is on it's way!!! Yahoo!!! I feel like a kid waiting for my birthday... well OK I still feel that way for my birthdays! Hee hee hee!! I can't wait to be able to post pictures again and arrange stuff how I want them!! But I'll still have to fight Mike for Internet access as we'll have to share the modem until he can set up a wireless system for me, hopefully that won't take too long!

After Vancouver we will drive the Cariboo and visit my Dad, Brother and Step Mom ( the girls are fighting with Dad, so I might not be able to see them) for the weekend and then it's home to get Ivy ready for KINDERGARTEN!!! We (Ivy and I) are both excited and scared, she hasn't been sleeping very well and tonight she said she was "sad" about school, I think she meant nervous. I'm sure she will do alright once there, it's just the wait that's reeking havoc

Post 65 ~ CRASH!!

It's been so frustrating this week, Monday night our computer crashed! Mike has lost a bunch of his stuff, all the e-mail addys, bookmarks, pictures (thankfully he copied most to disk before summer) games etc. He has a new hard drive coming in so hopefully he can save some stuff. Mike of course blames all my game demos I download and there is no way his stuff could have contributed {sarcasm} ;) But he is now buying me my very own LAPTOP! And he says he wants to get a customized one and because I have no clue about the ram or video cards etc I'm leaving that up to Mike and I get to pick the colour: either Plum or Blue

There has been so much I've want to blog about but haven't been able too:

I took pictures of my canning I've done last weekend but I can't share them till later.

I'm an Aunt! James and Lisa had their Baby Girl Bella on Tuesday Morning via emergency C-section, Mom and Bella are doing wonderful. I can't wait to see them in 2 weeks!!

My Uncle T is now home without a big toe nor the tops of the next few toes, he can't walk nor work either. His Wife and kids are back from Ethiopia as well and came back to a disaster area in the new house, Uncle T left a huge mess before he went to the hospital. I helped clean it and I've also taken my young cousins for little while to give M a break.

Oscar is growing like a weed and eating grasshoppers daily.

Anna is trying to assert her Independence which is a huge headache and a half! but I think we have come to an understanding that I'm the Mom and that's not going to change and she has to deal with it! Some days it's hard to believe she's only 2 1/2 and not 16.

After 3 months I finally got a period, something is messed with my body!

Mikes boss and foreman are fighting over him. Boss wants Mike to work in the shop as a mechanic, foreman wants him in the woods on the buncher, Mike doesn't care either way as long as he gets a paycheck.

I guess thats it for now, I will hopefully be able to post pictures and more soon!

Post 64 ~ HOT!

It's way too hot, too too hot for me. 40*C!

I don't like summer, I wish it was spring and fall all year round!

I'm currently reading a series by Dennis L. McKiernan (Once Upon a Winter's Night, Once Upon a Summer's Day etc etc..) and in the world of fairy there is 4 woods separated by a twilight boarder and each of these woods has a certain season: Springwood, Winterwood, Autumnwood and Summerwood. I with these woods were true to step from one season to another in a matter of minutes....tired of summer spend a few days in winter, tired of the cold go warm up in warm spring. that would be heaven for me!

Post #63 ~ Summer blues??

I'm not feeling well these past few days.....I feel very sluggish, kinda feel like a head cold coming on but I have a feeling it might be something more. My hair is falling out like crazy, Feel like a shedding dog!

My dang period is late again, I forgot to write on the calendar when my last one was but I think it was over 2 months ago. I took a pregnancy test and it was negative...I kinda think Maybe I'm going though Peri menopause or POF (Premature Ovarian Failier). POF is very common for Galactosemics (what Anna has) and I'm wondering how common it is for carriers like me....

But I also feel PMS symptoms: crampy, grumpy, don't want to be touched... but no spotting or anything. I'M a Big ol' MESS!!!!

Here I was thinking I was doing better, thinking the depression might be easing up but then I get hit with all this and I feel like crawling into bed and not getting up till October.
