hello?


is there anyone out there anymore other than my dad?

dad? are you there?

how about we just say i forgot my blog address;)

life's been busy and the more time that passed the harder it got just to sit down and catch up... because there would just be even more to catch up on. and that's just work for lazy people like me.

procastinators unite! tommorrow.

readers digest version:

my honey turned 36 and his birthday was great. (ahem, december 8)

time together with friends over the holidays. love that.

well, and christmas was great (yeah, christmas, i know... over two months ago...)

lots of good times... we had boxing day over at our house with gord's parents, his brother dave and his wife rhonda, and their girls gabi and em. more extended family, too... it was great.

my baby turned 3 on december 30. the baby is gone... he's a little man now. *sigh*

absolutely partied out by new years. off to bed early:)

had a fun crop over at my house with some girlfriends. can't wait to do it again!

hmmm... valentine's day was great.... yours truly received a trip to cku anaheim with my bud, renee... apparently my hubby and renee & jon (renee's husband) had been scheming... they were trying for creative escapes (link provided for my dad, lol...) but with it selling out in under two minutes, lets just say... cku it is!!

here's my PSA... thanks to a real live demo by my son, let's just say... laptops are not coin operated.

my toshiba is somewhere in ontario where the great minds at the canadian headquarters are trying to decide if my son sticking dimes in the memory slot and then destroying the slot on the way out, would be considered accidental damage. hence the $434 warranty we paid on it, so it would cover said or like damage, so i would not have to pay $500 in repair. i don't know if you get any more 'accidental' than 'acts of god' such as this... the guy told me that it would have been better if he'd picked it up and threw it off the counter (??? so... you're telling me what???) we shall see.

but, i have to say, the highlight would have to have been spending five days in anaheim last week. we left sunday (25) and returned thursday (1). loved it. three days in disneyland, two hours in target, and WAY too long in a very scary los angeles airport (not to mention rush hour traffic) makes me a very grateful girl to be living in my hick town of less than a million people. seriously... orange county has approx 25 million people... and the smaller county of anaheim has 12 million people. that's three million short of the entire population of canada!!

anyways, disneyland... really is the happiest place on earth:) we went during one of the slowest times (during the week and during regular school time) so the average wait time was five minutes... it was incredible! the 'parade of dreams' was fantastic, the floats were stunning, incredibly detailed, costumes beautiful, and dancers were unbelievable. all of it was breathtaking. this was pretty cool in many ways... mikehiela has loved ariel the mermaid since she was two... ariel is even mikehiela's middle name (no, i did not name her after a mermaid!) she used to dream of growing up to be a mermaid... and she expressed her displeasure more than once with me that i called her mikehiela instead of ariel for a first name. so you get the picture... the girl loves ariel. so when we were having lunch at 'ariel's grotto', princess ariel came right up to mikehiela (it was so sweet, she was so excited she couldn't eat! although she was trying to hide it, she was very nervous, so cute!!) and ariel totally fussed over mikehiela's red hair and how they were related... it just made her day, and mine:) side note... caleb didn't want to have his pictures taken with any of the princesses... ariel, jasmine, snow white, belle... but he wanted one with cinderella. after, gord asked him why he wanted one with her and not the others, he said 'i like the blonde ones'. don't know if i should laugh or cry;)

talk to you later, hopefully sooner!
