Off to Frankenmuth for the weekend

Arthur and the kids are meeting me in Sarnia after work and we are off to spend a couple of days in Frankenmuth. Can't wait to share this pretty town with the kids.

Happy Friday!

By working 1/2 hour a day extra for the last 3 weeks I have earned my first Happy Friday off!
Not sure yet what I am going to do but sure is nice to be able to have a day for myself. I think I'll stay home for the morning (kids want to come home for lunch) and then get a manicure and pedicure in the afternoon. Sounds like a plan to me.

Spring cleaning

In my old job we did a lot of cleaning with bleach and try as I might I could not keep the bleach off my clothes. For my new job I replaced the majority of my wardrobe so in order to hang my new things I had to get rid of my old things. A couple of bags for the garbage, several bags of things I haven't worn in years. Now the closet door closes. Feels good.

Got a computer problem? Call Aaron

His cousins may a think he is a bit of a geek but when they have computer problems, who do they call.

Aaron of course: Little do they know he is actually being coached by mom. Let them think he knows all the answers.

Last night it was, I moved the computer to my bedroom and now the keyboard doesn't work. I have tried 4, What do I do.

Aaron: Try the connections. Make sure they are tight.

then he asked me "Mom could it be the driver?"

Mom said "probably not if it just worked a little while ago."

Mom told Aaron to suggest turning the computer off and then turning it back on after 10 minutes or so.

An hour later his cousin called back and said it works. How did you get so smart?

Easter treats for work

While at Shoppers Drug Mart a while ago I received a $10 bonus coupon so when I saw this container of mini eggs I just had to have it. It would look perfect on my desk at work. What a perfect way to show people I am a stamper and possibly generate some interest. When I put green mints on my desk for St. Patrick's Day, I was surprised how many people stopped to talk.

Maybe this will have the same effect. Can't hurt to spread some Easter cheer anyway!

Just took off the label and added a new one using the new punches and a favourite Easter image coloured with my almost forgotten chalks.

Have a great March Break

Its March Break and we won't be going too far. Aaron and Jenna are going to spend the week with Granny and their cousins. We'll take the opportunity next month to get away for a long weekend or so.
Hope you all have a wonderful March Break

Starting to get used to the new schedule

I'm starting to get used to the new schedule. Picked up dinner on the way home, took Aaron to Scouts, did groceries and shopped for a new spring jacket for Jenna, put groceries away, made Lasagna for dinner tomorrow, mended the pocket on my spring jacket, picked up Aaron and still had time to surf the net before bed. Jenna and I also listed 35 reasons I like my new job.

Love my new job so far

Love my new job so far. Even have my own office space, computer, cell phone and work to do already.
