Post 76 ~ New arrival!

My younger brother Rob and his Girlfriend Jamie welcomed their baby boy into the world late Monday night!! Cameron Stewart is a Hefty 10lbs 10oz and after 2 days of labour had to make his entrance via C-section, (poor Jamie, I could not imagine trying to push him out!) Rob is a Proud Papa!

On a sad note though, little Cameron had to under go some genetic testing. The Doctors are concerned about his small facial feature that are squished together. I haven't seen pictures yet but I highly doubt it's anything to be concerned with. Rob says Mom and Babe should come home from hospital this weekend

I'm making a baby Quilt for them but now that I know they had a boy, I'm gonna change it up a bit and make it more masculine. The material I originally bought for the back was pastel green, blue, pink and yellow with flowers and butterflies, I think I will save it for a quilt I want to make for Anna.

Post 75 ~ Anna hates to sleep!

Yet again I am frustrated! This time with my daughter Anna. We've been having issues with her sleep schedules from most of a year now. Lately she hates her bed. First it was monsters in the bed, so she spent most of a week sleeping on my bedroom floor, then she spent a week on her bedroom floor when she still refused to sleep in her own bed.

So this weekend I got Mike to dismantle her bed and put her mattress on the floor, the way she has been sleeping for 2 weeks but now refuses to. Currently she is in her room crying and screaming making lots of excuses (my blanket fell off, the door is too closed, the cat came in, I need more blankets, too many blankets etc. etc.) And she is begging to sleep in my bed or the sofa. It's Flippin ridiculous! Mike is so upset, I can't even talk to him without having him snap at me.

Most nights when she does go to bed nicely she ends up getting up several times during the night or up at 6 am (which doesn't jive with us morning haters) On days that she does get up early, like today, she has a small nap which makes her even less tired at bedtime. Which in turn, makes her GRUMPY!!

Oh why can't she be like her sister, Ivy loves to sleep and can't function without 12 hours of sleep. Hmmm I can't hear anything from their room at the moment... only took her an hour to fall asleep hopefully she stay in bed till Mike leaves for work at 7:30am.

Uh oh, was that a whimper......maybe not.... I can't wait till the girls are Teens and they will want/need to sleep in till noon hee hee hee

Post #74 ~ VOTE!

But for whom?? Today we Canadians go to the polls and decide our future Prime Minister, ug, what a decision. I know I won't be voting for Dion and liberals, he's too wussie. I like the Green Party's ideals but highly doubt they will get the needed votes. Conservatives or NDP.......I don't know! I don't even know who our local reps are, the media has been mainly focusing on the party leaders not their underlings......Oh well I have until this evening when Mike comes home to decide.

We had an alright Thanksgiving weekend. Saturday we went to M&T's for cousin David's 1st birthday, he is cute, so small. Troy says David has lost a bunch of weight these past few months and has to go for a bunch of test, poor little guy.

Sunday was Turkey Dinner as Gramma P's, Mike family was all there. It was nice, Ivy and I were bashing heads again so that kinda spoilt the day. Not much for leftovers, Gramma gave most away to Ben, bah-humbug!

Monday was spent doing housework and cleaning up the yard (which mike mainly did) Mike also spent the day trying to rid Ben's computer of a virus that keeps trying to send it's self to everyone on his MSN list, Very annoying. So that meant that Ben spent most of the afternoon here and bugging me....since he was too stubborn to go outside and help his brother. Arg he makes me so mad! Mike helps him with whatever and whenever Ben wants him but do you think he would help Mike! No that would mean he actually has feels and thinks about someone other then himself! BAH!

Today I went to my Wellness group which ended up being the last for awhile, the lady wants me to come back when she starts it up again as she will be tweaking the program and she thinks I can help co-felicitate. Not to sure about that but I will attend again. Also found out that my councilor is moving on so I get a new case worker.....Yikes, Now I have to open up to someone new and share my story all over again! Maybe I should just show her my blog and she can find out about me that way :D

Time for play group, so that's it for today.

Post #73~RANT!

I'm getting so frustrated with the financial situation of our world. And it's all the USA governments fault. Well maybe not all their fault but at least 95.78% is their wrong doing! (lol)

It makes me so mad that Canada relies so heavily on the US, I wish our country could be more self-sufficient. Who/what gave the right to them to be so powerful? oh ya, they did.....stupid nuclear bombs.

I don't have anything against the American public just their government and all the billionaire CEO's and Bigwigs. If they would just share half their wealth then this world wouldn't be starving, wasting away to toxic dust.

I am also frustrated that Mike and I can not buy the lot behind us without totally going into debt. 10 years ago that lot would have sold for $10,000 or less, today it's listed at $39,000. It's just a bare lot, no house, no shed, no plumbing - nothing - just a picked fence. We've been wanting to buy since we bought our house, it would be so nice to build a huge shop on it for all mikes tools and toys (and junk) and then my yard would nice and tidy. We could even tear down this house and build our dream home on all 3 lots, a dream come true! But no, not now, not with the unknown financial situation of our nation and the one next door.
