I had to cancel my dentist appointment for this morning- because this stupid cold I came down with is making it impossible to breath through my nose.
This afternoon, I took Nathan to the "old mall" in search of a store I'd heard about, that would hopefully either have a bra to fit under my wedding dress, or would be able to custom make one- the store isn't in the mall any more. And no one can remember the name of it, so I can't look it up to see if it's moved.
And I think the thing that's got me the most riled today, is the conversation Chris had with his brother last night. His whole family seems to think I need to head back to work! I'm so ANGRY about that. Just because his brothers wife is returning to work after her baby...just because his mother worked all through their childhoods...
I keep saying my kid(s) will only be young once, and I want to enjoy as much of it as I can.
Plus we made the decision to move to a smaller town- with cheaper housing for this exact reason- so I shouldn't have to work.
And truth be told, Both Chris and I had separate properties when we left town. I sold mine and put the profits into this house. He sold his and put them into the business, which has now in essence lost that money.
I have paid the mortgage myself for the last year.
Although that's the only bill I really pay- he pays the utilities etc. - it's not like I've been having a free ride on some gravy train. I feel I've contributed more than my share for the past year...so for them to start yapping off that I need to go back too work and help with the bills is absolute crap to me!
We had such a fun- MAGICAL time last night...
Nathan of course found the "ice cream cones" in the dollar store bag almost immediately. And wandered around, trying to carry all three of them for most of the night.
I finally unscrewed the lid of one, and started blowing some bubble for him- he was absolutely spellbound- I had somehow created the coolest thing ever. He sat on the floor and watched them, jumped up to catch them, spun around to see where they'd gone...it was at least twenty minutes of the best entertainment ever as far as he was concerned.
I love watch "new" things through his eyes...makes you remember how magical life can be if you look at everything with fresh eyes!

But while I was there I ended up spending a lot more than 1 dollar (surprise).
I picked up a little rake so Nathan can help with yard work, a plastic fishing pole with some plastic fish, a big box of those huge sidewalk chalks- can you telling I'm dying for spring to begin? But mother nature hates me and gave us more snow again today, actually I'm convinced it's my fault I was wearing Capri's or shants when it was warm a few weeks ago and I'm sure I jinxed everything.
*shants* - Tiff proposed this word in College, based off the theory they are Not Short, Not Pants...and anyone with self respect SHANT wear them. Love IT!
Back to the dollar store I also found these "ice creams" and had to have them, not only do I love the colors they're actually bubble blowers inside...I'm wondering if I should e-mail a pic to the wedding photographer...I think it would be so cool to use them in some of the wedding party pics, and then we could have bubbles too!
Well I think it's a neat idea, even if Chris rolls his eyes...
Well the trees are starting to blossom...which is always so pretty...
But the other pics are our front yard...
What kind of sick joke is that??? There's still snow on half of it and Dandelions are already taking over the other half!!!
I guess I need to get on my resolution to find more earth friendly weed solutions a little sooner than I thought
I Thought we needed to spend at least a little time outside yesterday- so we tried to teach Nathan to feed the ducks at the lake. He ate the bread- and the Geese won't let any ducks come near us....
It was a little Chilly, especially with the wind...you can see the snow is still between the rocks on the shore.
I also figured out yesterday that I'm afraid of geese.
I read somewhere years ago, that geese have strong enough wings that the flapping can break a childs arm. Hence why Nathan is being held in all these pictures.
But the stupid goose wouldn't leave me alone once it made the connection that I had food. I was literally running from this stupid thing...pretty aggressive bird I thought. It would walk right up to you looking for food...
As you can see in a bunch of the pics. Chris could even hand feed the stupid thing.
He was busy laughing at me, trying to convince me that even if the goose did bite me...it has no teeth and the worst it would feel like was a pinch...I really have no desire to test that theory, thanks

The other day, I set off for work, leaving my husband in the house watching TV. I hadn't gone more than a kilometre or two when my engine conked out, and the car shuddered to a halt. I walked back hom, only to find my husband making love to our neighbour.
My Husband was let go from his job six months ago, and he says he has been feeling increasingly depressed and worthless. I love him very much, but don't know if I can trust him anymore. What should I do?
A car stalling can be caused by a variety of faults with the engine. Check for debris in the fuel line. If it's clear, check the "jubilee" clips holding the vacuum pipes onto the inlet manifold. Or maybe the fuel pump itself is faulty, causing low delivery pressure to the carburetor float chamber.
I hope this helps.

“During a friendly argument, my husband asked me why I married him in the first place.
“I was just stupid,” I teased.
When he said he was happy to hear that, I requested an explanation.
“People get divorced all the time because they fall out of love,”he said.
“But I’ve never heard of anyone falling out of stupid.” –Linda E. Barbour
Although we did manage to get to Moore's and pick out a Tuxedo for Chris this afternoon. He looks pretty spiffy when he's all cleaned up. He also managed to get matching ties for his brothers...they'll both match and then match his vest material as well...I think it'll all look sharp...now I just need to start over with my bridesmaids...well at least one of them.
Nathan was quite amused with the mirrors too...I let him stand in the dressing room mirrors, and he could figure out why there was suddenly 20 Nathans. It was pretty fun to see. Although he had to leave the store a little earlier than Daddy since he was not playing very nice. He's obviously headed for the terrible 2's much earlier than expected.
