A Growing Family!!

Don't get all worked up, It's not what your thinking. Our new additions have come in many forms and shapes and sizes. First off we are the proud parents of a 18yr old teenage girl let's call her Sally ( sorry creppy people no real names used here. ). She comes to us from Kamloops B.C. and is a Massage Therapy student going to school and working here in Calgary. We LOVE her. She is a wonderful addition to our home. The kids love her and so do hubby and I. She is the teenage pregnancy I should have had. She is funny and charming and so well matched to our little family. Yes she is member of our church and so family prayers have been added onto. Now we are learning how to worry about a teen when she goes out on dates and I find myself waiting up for her. Hubby checks out all the guys she brings around ( although it's only one guy she's smitten with ) and we have an extra set of hands to help with the kids and that is priceless. We have tried to make her arrangement with us as similar to home as we can and according to her weve done a good job. Welcome home Sally and we hope your here for while.

Secondly we have also adopted my hubbys latest baby, a 52 inch LG t.v. It's a DLP, rear projection t.v that hubby has been looking for for almost 6 months now. We looked and looked and had given up the dream for awhile when sweet Sally called from work ( Electronics store ) and said that one had been returned, repaired and left behind and the store wanted it gone for $800.00 including the stand. Well that's better then the $4000.00 we thought we would have to spend to get what we wanted. So needless to say it is proudly displayed inour basement and hubby is feeling like the million dollar man right now. Thank you Sally!

I on the other hand have the project of getting ready for this up comming holiday of merryment. Am I feeling merry yet? well it depends on the moment. Last night after picking up a few gifts and wrapping them I felt pretty good. Today while I dusted the house and tryed to re organize the entire house Not so much merryness here. I have 18 people comming for the holidays and my house is only 1350 sq ft. It's good thing we developed the basement or I would be Merrily screwed. It will be a tight squeeze but we will make it work somehow. If you have any suggestions please let me know I could use all the help I can get.

I'm a Skinny Hairy Girl!!

If you havn't noticed it's almost 11:30 at night and I am awake and talking to myself on the computer. I started my day dashing off to a Weight Watchers meeting I was asked to sub, very last minute night before last. Then I rushed back to pick up my Son at school, come home and make lunch, putter around in the afternoon, make dinner, then rush back out (in the snow I may add) and do another meeting for my loyal over weight fans, then I came home and spent two hours giving a new male client a fantastic head of highlights that he loved and when I was finished that I proceded back to the kitchen to put away dinner (funny how everyone else missed that) and make lunch's for the boy's for tomorrow. Now when I should be crawling into bed beside myself with exhaustion I have cleaned up the basement and ended up with you folks filling in my time on this my ever faithful blog. CRAP I'm crazy. Would I trade this for anything? NO. I love both of my jobs and when people are happy I'm happy. Although I think I should try a little snoooze, this desk is looking pretty good, I wonder what would happen if I put my head down here..... zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
