ten on tuesday

1. My mother's day present from Brad is being picked up at the boarder tomorrow. It's a Kindle!

2. At first I didn't think I would like a Kindle, will I miss holding a book and turning the pages? I'm not a book buyer, I am a library person. But I think I will like it. We'll see tomorrow! What books should I buy?

3. Oscar is just over 3 months old. How time flies. The belly fat does not fly, it jiggles. It just sits right where it is and makes it so I can't do up my pants. Literally. I went to Lethbridge today in pants that were not buttoned up. I'm pathetic.

4. This wind is CRAZY! I mean we live in SA so a little wind is fine. And I'm not one to usually go on and on about the weather. But I really want to get my kids outside. Dirt yard and wind do not mix.

5. Brad built the rail on the deck on Saturday. I'm hoping grass will be in before I know it. I bet I have grass before I have kitchen cupboard doors! Ha!

6. I have been doing laundry all day. All the bedding for the trailer. Camping time at the lake is coming fast!

7. The kids got a little carried away with tv watching during this cold winter. I think the cut back on tv has been harder on me than on the kids.

8. We went to Edmonton a week and a half ago. The kids had so much fun at west ed. Roman was right in to the rides and the water slides. It was fun to be back in Edmonton, even just for the weekend. Such a nice city.

9. I have been checking the mail everyday for the last week. The tax returns finally came today!

10. I'm stuck so I'll borrow number 10 from Christal, can't wait to go to Wicked this summer!

ten on tuesday

1. I like this ten on Tuesday thing, I can just write 10 random not at all related things and it looks like I am blogging!

2. I love my white bedroom. It really makes me want to paint the rest of my house white. I always used to laugh when people said they liked white walls. But finding the right white was so hard.

3. That said I have a huge love hate relationship with my white bedding.

4. Actually it is my kids who have a love hate relationship with my bedding. They love to get stains all over it and they hate it when I get mad at them for it.

5. My husband is the best. He likes to spoil me. He has gotten me some amazing presents this year for birthday, valentines day, and now mothers day.

6. What's that you say, we haven't had mothers day yet? You are right. But Brad just can't keep a secret. I always end up getting my presents early because he just can't wait.

7. But now the pressure is on, what do I get him for his birthday and father's day?

8. I really really want to get sewing, crafting, decorating my house, and refinishing a ton of furniture sitting in my garage. But I just can't seem to get myself started.

9. I love telling people Oscar's name. I get a ton of great reactions. Oh, umm, that's.... nice. Ha Ha Ha! The best is "that's different". Just say you don't like it already. I really don't care if you don't like my kids name.

10. This kids is getting chubby! Just look at these cheeks!
