I found a new addiction

ever fell in love at first bite? this weekend, it happened to me, we went to bulk barn and found a new serie of snackage. decided to try the pumpkin seed one

it's so good, my hubby had to go buy the 3rd bag of it today. we can't keep em in stock. at least, i'm not the only one who can't get enough of em. i know the kids love them too. then again, if they didn't like them, there would be more for me. ah well, at least, it's full of good nutritional stuff.

What would you do?

if, one day, by accident, you stumbled on a piece of creation that looked strangely like something you did years ago? has that ever hapened to you?

i'm asking that because it just so happened to me last night. i stumbled on this (look at the foot), and it imediately reminded me of some pendent i made over 10 years ago in college, while taking a jewelery making class.

theirs is cheap and full of lead and mine is sterling silver though. so mine is worth much more then just $1. and i'm not selling it. i've got a hunch my daughter might want to ware it someday

An other day bite the dust

Starting with thursday, ya ya, how about living in the present, right? well, that's what happen when your making other plans. ok, so trusday, got up at 5:30 to get in town for 8am... no wonder i'm so out of touch with time, i'm not made to function this early. but none the less we had to be in town because at 10am we had to be at the optometris for Owen's eye exam, yeah, that one we've been preparing for oh, a month now? and figured it would be more timely to do is work in town before the apointment. and 30 minute before going to the optometrist, i had to put drops in his eyes. ahahah, more like 45 minute before i should've prepared fore, cause it took 15 minutes to put 2 drop in each eyes. and as much as we hated it, we had to do it by force, because, he just wouldn't cooperate at all. never, did i ever had so much trouble putting droplets in one eye. and had to be careful not to poke his eye in the process. that's enough already to ruin all the work we had done to get him to look into the machine. but i brought the secret weapon hehe, the one to break fear.

so for sure, we got to the machine, and he was more prudent around it then the last time. he would sit behind it, but wouldn't assume the position to look into it. that's when i take him down from the seat and stand Vivian in his place. she looks, she does it very well. she does it so well, Owen figure, if she can do it, so can i. and we get the mesurement we need for his new eye prescription. now we only need to choose his frame. and pay for them.

after that food was in the order. Ponderosa, as usual, it's the easiest place to get something they'll eat. and a girl to go with that? euh, not sure where the girl come from. they sat beside us for a while and the girl started palying peekaboo with Owen and they had a blast. didn't eat much though. isn't that a first sign of love? ah well. hehe, he's still to young to even ask her name so what can you expect.

then we went to Sears to pick up my new machine. guess what i've been doing since then. euh, floors. one by one, i'm getting them all done. it's a lot better then being stuck doing the same room for a week. can i tell you my feeling about floors? i hate texture. dirt get stuck in it and it's hard to get it out. next time i get floors redone, i pick smooth surfaces.

now i just hope the roads are not too bad tomorrow morning. because i want a chicken!!! the only place i can get them is at the farmer's market on saturday. chicken and other meat products. all med and chemical free.

ok now that i'm all cough up with time. i better go do what i should do at this time... bed time

Chantal, no time for time or time out

Hey! smell you later!!!

We came home today to a thunder fresh smelling house. no more bad smell and if there were critters, they should be gone too. the house was flooded with ozone made up from the oxigen that was occupying the house, so in other words, there was very little oxigene left to breath if any. i'm hoping that it's also the end of colds. i'm sick of runny noses and feeling under the weather.

on our way back home, i made a stop at frenchies, not so entusiatic about what i found for me, it's not the greatest, but i found a lot of nice stuff for the kids. i had to make 2-3 round of elimination, because i knew it was gonna be too much for my liking at the cash register. why is it so easy to shop for the kids and so much more difficult to shop for me. i hate shopping for me. on the bright side, i saw a friend i hadn't seen in a long time.

on thursday, we took Owen with us to the team meeting so we could take him to the optometrist's office after for an other session of positive enforcement to get confortable with the eye exam mashine. it went pleasingly well, he looked into it and was even able to get a few readings, although he would move at the last minute and we're not totaly sure the mesures are acurate but it's gonna be different with the drops in the eyes next week. so that evening, Owen went to sleep at 10pm, after we stopped at the restorent at 9pm for a late supper. what bugs me is that while we were sitting, eating our meal, a group of young peoples came to sit at the table right next to us and felt it was a dishonor to sit so close to a "2 years old" pfft! why not pick an other table? they even complained about the table, the service and anything they could thing of complaining about. rude! rude! so rude!!!

and last weekend hehe, i'm going backward am i? hehe last weekend, i had the blessing to meet father Melvin Doucette. we attended his retreat on the prayer of contemplation. it was verry interresting and he also celebrated a healling mass. maybe i'll try to go see him in P.E.I. with my mom this summer. If only we could have more priest like him.

so there's been a lot of "out of routine events" lately for the kids. hope it will not affect the routine too much

don't forget to move your clock ahead an hour tonight, if daylight saving time apply to you.

so it's later then it really is and i really should go to bed now. dunno how i'll be able to fool my body but i don't like the idea of losing 1 hour tonight :|

Chantal, losing time
