What we learned is that we won't be one of those couples that leaves the kids with their grandparents for 2 weeks while we jet off to Mexico or Europe, where ever. We are 4 and we like to keep it that way. I don't think there's anything wrong with doing that, it's just not for us. We like to be together.
Now, as I mentioned before, we are in the thick of potty training. I also noted I wasn't ready. I was right. Today has been a disaster. No success ON the potty. Lots OFF but then that really isn't success is it? I guess that depends whose perspective your looking at it from.
The novelty of sitting on the potty has worn off for Kamden. But there's really no going back now. I know we can get there if we stick to it. BUT the poop in pants is precisely why I was wanting to delay this. Afterall Jack was many, many months older before we even started. Guess I should have known that this would be different with Kamo just like everything else has been.
Off to the potty. The bathroom needs renovating... I am tired of the colour scheme after spending so much time in there of late.....

We have enjoyed our time alone and gotten lots accomplished but we feel like half a whole without the boys.
They are at Grams and Pops and having the time of their lives with their cousins. Not missing us a bit. That makes me happy but I sure will be happy to see their smiling little faces this afternoon!

We do like our house - we've done lots to make it our own - and we like the neighborhood that we live in. It's in a good area close to all the good stores, there are lots of parks to walk to and a great bike path for walking and biking.
But the reason we can NEVER move is because of the collection of address lables we have.
This is only about half of the ones we have received. Some were very large and gawdy so I just recycled them.
Now I use snail mail about once a month during a good month. So this would likely be a LIFETIME supply of address labels. I do send Christmas cards via snail mail (they are just more fun to receive in my books than e-cards) but I have a whole other collection filled with Christmas labels.
The charities seem to be using the labels to guilt us into donating. The problem I have is that you only get the labels AFTER you have already donated. Then they send you the labels so you will feel like you have to donate again because of the nice gift they sent you. Seeing as I have so many, I am sure their tactics are no longer working.
We'll be here until we are old and gray and snail mail doesn't exist. We'll stick our address labels to the crosswords we'll spend all day doing. At least we'll be together AND we'll know where we live.

Was it a virus.
It was either the way the operating system was installed or the way Dell partitions their drives.
Either way it was Dell's fault. Meaning the hard drive is replaced since it was still under warrantly.
How long have you had your computer, you may ask....
Since the end of March.
IF is crashes every 6 months I will have A LOT more grey hair.
Thankfully I am not in the middle of a module right now. Had I been, this would have been a much BIGGER deal. Really it was a minor inconvience and meant less blogging and emailing time. AND I will now back up my pictures more often. Somehow I am really good at keeping my work files backed up but not so good with the pictures. Lesson learned.
I didn't lose anything though. My sister-in-laws brother recovered everything for me - yay!
Did ya miss me?
