Accessorizing your ride

Well trying to come up with an alternative to our 2nd vehicle delema has left us looking at alternatives like a motorcycle for hubby. This will work to get him back and forth to work and will certainly be cheaper to get than another car. It will also be cheaper on gas and insurance so it's a win - win all the way around. We are shopping between a Honda and a national cycle. I'm not sure which way he will go but I'm sure there will be lots of accessories to come after he gets his bike

Working late

I had to work late tonight, I usually don't mind it too much when they ask me to stay, it's an extra hour or 2 on the cheque. Now tonight maybe could have been a different story as we have to go for groceries in the morning so I actually have to get up and get going in the morning rather than sleeping in while hubby gets the kids off to school. I'm off tommorrow night as hubby is working so I will be able to get to sleep early tommorrow night at least.

Life after the kids go to school

I've always considered going back to school but with kids small we made the choice that I would stay home and be available for them when they needed me to be. They are starting to get older and next year my baby will be starting school :0( and although I am sad to see it happen it is time for me to start preparing myself for the next stage. I am considering going to a Beauty School so I can have a career as a hair dresser. I really enjoy cutting and styling everyone in the families hair and think it would be fun to be able to do it everyday. Now the thought of going to Beauty School is a little bit intimidating since I have been out of school for almost 13 years but once I started looking into the information I feel better about the decision to go back and get started on my career.

Santa Claus Parade

The annual Santa Claus Parade was held here yesterday and the great thing about it was that the parade travels right infront of our house. It was a little chilly but we were able to get the kids chairs out on the lawn and some blankets. We were more prepared this year as the kids had treat buckets ready, it is unreal the amount of treats that are given out from the parade particapants. There were lots of cartoon characters out an about with new addition of Kung Fu Panda which was a big hit. It was a good time with the kids.

Great Party

I went to hubby's Christmas part last night and we actually had a good time, last year was the first year with his store and we were surprised because after the supper was over almost everyone left, and went to their own little mini parties. Now they all came back a few hours later for the dance but it seemed strange. Hubby worked on it all year and finally they came up with the idea of having a comedy hour inbetween supper and the dance in which they could share funny stories with each other over the years. It was pretty fun and the bar agreed to do a happy hour with the group so that also helped to keep everyone around. It was a lot more fun this year even if we won a spice rack this year instead of a digital camera.

While I got my hair cut the other day at Walmart hubby got stalled down at the tv display, I originally thought he was dreaming of a new TV but I realized so that Blake had seen Wall-e playing on the screens and didn't want him to leave the area. They stayed there and watched the movie the whole time I was getting my hair cut. He was a little upset that we had to leave before it was over but he will no doubt get this movie for Christmas. Hubby brought him home a Wall-e poster they were giving away at his work last night and snuck in up on his wall while he was sleeping. He was so excited this morning when he got up and saw Wall-e hanging on his wall.

Christmas decorations in stall

We have hit a stall pattern in our Christmas decorating outside, there was a major wind storm the other night and it blew a lot of my Christmas garland and lights down. Hubby is off in the morning so hopefully it will be nice enough to get outside and get everything put back up and maybe we'll get the last set of lights we needed for the front. Having a bigger house now it's hard to stretch the decorations out so we'll have to break down and buy some new lights, garland and decorations to finish up.

Wanting to get organized

Part of my renovation dreams for the house is to move the driveway from the side of the house to the front ( a big project) but the entrance at the front of the house is like a little mud room which would be great for the kids to come in and drop their stuff. I am planning on buying a portable closet for the front porch anyway and have the kids store their belongings out their to keep them out of the way.It will sure be a big help in organizing out the house.

It's back

OH how I love my Bacon Mushroom Melt from Wendy's it is unfortunate that they don't offer it all the time, it has been well over a year since they have last had it so when I heard it was coming back I was, well let's say excited. We have been in a couple of times this week to be sure to have a few before it goes away again. I hope at some point they are good enough to put it on the menu full time so I can have one whenever I want but I'll certainly make the most of it while it's here.

Shopping from home

Shopping from the comfort of our own homes has become very popular as use of the internet increases. We are all becoming more comfortable making purchase online with secure sites. When shopping for medical equipment, supplies or health supplement and exercise equipment you can turn to the experts in online delivery at Allegro Medical, they have been deliving great products and service through their online site since 1996 and have all the products you might need. They have a huge assortment available at great pricing and are ready to ship to your door right away. They also offer autmatic shipping so you don't have to remember to order your supplies they can be set up to auto ship before you run out.

Running on empty

I have found myself running on empty lately, I had a really hard time going to work tonight but I'm hoping to get caught up on some sleep tonight and with any luck I will get to sleep in tommorrow. I know I don't need luck though because hubby is home tommorrow and he will always get up with the kids (yes, without me asking) and usually does a good job keeping them quite so I can get a few extra ZZZ's.

It's beginning to look alot like Christmas

Well not really, another rainy weekend is upon us, we have been trying to finish our outside Christmas lights and decorations but every chance we get to work on it we have been greeted with rain. Now don't get me wrong it's great for the oil bill to have the temperatures that are going with the rain but usually by this time of year we have some snow on the ground and everything is frozen up. I will be very excited when I get the chance to finish up the decorating and can turn my lights on every night.

Real Economic Pressure

With the uncertain economic position we are all facing in the coming year it can be very tough to sell your real estate. I can see it all around our community, when we moved in houses were selling as fast as they were listed but the last few months you see the sale signs go up and stay up for months. Whatever your circumstances you don't want to have to wait for your house to sell. If your looking for a solution to sell house fast turn to the experts that can make it happen. They will work with you to make an appointment to view your property and after the view they will have a fair offer back to you withing 48 hours so you can quickly get on with your life. After you have accepted the offer they will take care of the final details of the deal for you.

Movie Time"We like to move it"

Well we found a break in our schedules today with no school here today, Hubby being off and me working tonight things were looking up and the final touch the movie theater is open early today and we are hoping to get into the 12:45 show which will allow me to get back to work for 3:30. The kids have been talking about Madagascar 2 for weeks and we are excited to finally get them there....let's hope we have some fun.

Comfort and Style

Working hard for a living isn't anything new for many of us it's just a way of life. Now when you are on your feet most of the day it's important to wear footwear that is comfortable and can take the impact you send through them everyday. Many hardworking people require work boots for protection and years ago that meant sacrificing comfort for protection but with better quality products available now you can get both great style and comfort from your workboots. Shopping online just got easier, review the great assortment of workboots from and you will see they have many great choices, styles, colors for whatever your work day throws your way.

The Christmas Switcheroo

With Halloween behind us I have turned my energy(what little bit of extra I have) to changing my decorations over to Christmas. We dug out the Christmas boxes and got up the garland and lights all around my doorways. Oh yeah and my life size singing/kareokee Santa Clause is up too. We switched the outdoor decor over to the Christmas look, removed fall leaves and added the red leaves, an easy switch and changed the inflatable from ghosts over to Santa. It was 18 here today so not really in the Christmas mode but it was good for getting things done.
