Kelly, glad you got a day to rest and recharge. You obviously needed it even though it just put off your to-do list.

Started raining/pouring as soon as it was time for me to leave work. It was dark like night time, then by the time I got home (10 minutes drive), it was still raining AND the sun was shining. So weird.

Been shopping this evening with my Mom and managed to spend a small fortune. I have just 1 pair of shorts (and they are not really ones I would wear except around the house) and a couple of pairs of culottes (that are very not in fashion, and while good for being comfortable in at home, are not really meant to be seen in public), and 1 skort for summer. Work is fine, as I have to wear pants there anyway. But I had nothing for the in-between stuff - shopping, family lunches etc. Came home with 2 pairs of casual capris, 2 pairs of shorts, 1 pair of leggings and 4 thin, large comfy t-shirts that will make excellent lounging around the house & being comfortable in the evening paired with pajama pants shirts. Also picked up some new nail polish - 2 new colours, + a bottle of one of my two absolute favourite colours which they have apparently just retired. May have to see if I can find me another bottle somewhere & stash it away. I have a pink colour and a purple colour that I wear all.the.time and of course it is the purple one they have retired......... :P
Got me a deal at wally world though. I bought $$ black socks for work at the department store - mostly in the last 6-12 months. I've never thrown out so many pairs of socks as I have since moving. I think I've tossed pretty much a pair a week! Weird, random, unexplainable holes; heels wore out etc. The socks I do still have are ones I bought at wally world a couple years ago. So I went back there again. 3 prs for $2! I got a whole dozen pairs for just $8.
Then we stopped by the hardware store and I bought two fans - but I managed to get a deal there too courtesy of my Dad (15% off). It is supposed to be very warm here the next couple days, so I will need them. I did have 2 large ones and 2 small ones before the move, but I tossed out 1 large one before moving, and 1 small one broke in the move. I will need to look out for another small one, as the one remaining small one I have is on its last legs.
Now I'm sitting with my feet up!

Has anyone here been to Niagara Falls (either Canadian or US side)?

Thinking about a quick road trip there this summer and looking for first hand accounts and activity recommendations.

I hear you on the "someday" list. Mine is pretty long of places that I'd like to see. Plus there's the whole I already saw it, but would like my kids to see it too.

I went to Niagara Falls when I was growing up, but we only went to the American/NY side. I also haven't taken the kids. DH hasn't seen it either (although he's not really one for traveling so he'd probably be ok not seeing it). So since it's drivable from where I live we may do it this summer after school is out.

I've been, though I was only there for a day. Obviously, you can do the boat that goes to the falls.
Niagara on the Lake is worth walking around for half a day or a day. There is a great candy store there that the kids would probably enjoy, and there is a great coffee/tea vendor there also. Lots of little boutique shops etc in the heritage district.
Fort George is easily reachable from Niagara Falls.
There is the Butterfly conservatory, and I believe there is also a bird sanctuary or something.
SIL said they took visitors &the kids on the cable car, and that was enjoyed.
Pretty sure there is a waterpark there somewhere.
Marineland is there too.
Number of museums & stuff too I think.

We're only planning on doing the falls and the activities there this trip since we only have a limited amount of time between the end of school and the sports summer camps that the kids are doing for a week. So far I'm thinking the Rainbow Bridge and the activities that come with the adventure pass (boat ride, walk behind the falls, white water walk and Niagara fury). Was hoping someone had done some of those and could give me some feedback on them - how good they are and length of time needed for them.

You're pretty far from Niagara falls aren't you, for a day trip anyway?

From here, yes. But from Toronto it was fine. The day I did Niagara Falls my housemate and I made a weekend out of it.
Lilbro & family did a few days trip there when they had out-of-country guests visiting who wanted to see the Falls.

FYI, it is a names list. No horrid photos or anything that would make you cry or have nightmares or anything.

And you know the poor girl named Figgy must get jokes all the time about figgy pudding.It is Npeter that kills me, with the pronunciation explanation that the N is silent. Why don't the parents just call the child Peter then!?!

The house, she is tidy (except for the spare room which is still full of boxes and the two baskets of laundry sitting in the bedroom which are definitely not getting done tonight!). And now, we sit down for ze chocolate cake & ze chocolate ice cream. You are velcome to join me. If you want ze milk in the tea or ze coffee or ze cream in the coffee, you bring your own.

Done- tried to post last night but got the token thing.

We go back the first week in August (well around the 9th). I still have to go back Tuesday and will be going in later today to work- If I don't then I will for sure have to go back Monday.

Well, that was a first for me. Got kicked out of a public washroom today!I was at the mall running errands, and decided to use the ladies' room. Was just about to enter the stall, and a cleaning person comes in &tells me I have to leave because they are going to mop. So I had to go halfway across the mall to the next washroom.
Never heard of not being able to use a washroom because cleaning staff are going to mop. LIke seriously, she couldn't have waited the 2 minutes Iwould have been in there?

nope, I've seen that happen before too

but, in big places like airports they do clean around the customers but, not in department stores.

At least they clean it. I've been in stores lately where the checklist has been from two days prior and it was disgusting so I would just leave.

Evening Chicks! Sorry I have been completely MIA.
We have been following Lyla's softball team around and have started working on our old house to put it on the market. Who knew being retired was so busy!

I hope you are all well and enjoying the Spring. Stacy, I saw your new kitchen layout. I love it.
