DIANA!!! Your crazy week beats mine, hands down! The most stressful thing I had to do this past week, was to take DD for her post-op appointment. I did Super WalMart and Highland Farms on Wednesday. Surprisingly, Highland Farms was busier than WalMart.

Other than that, I have no plans to leave my house till sometime after New Years!

DH will be braving Best Buy tomorrow at the crack of stupid because we are getting a Wii with the Christmas money we got from the IL's. He's nuts, but it'll be worth it because the first week in January, Costco has the Wii Fit Plus on sale. I am SO not going with him tomorrow because I am NOT that nuts!

Hope all of you had a blessed day and that you enjoyed your time with your families. I am most blessed to count you all among my friends! MWAH!

Speaking of inlaw's gifts...guess what they got me?!?! THE KEURIG B70!!!!! Woohoo...I'll be having GREAT coffee tomorrow morning...got it all set up and ready to go! Special thanks to my wonderful DH for telling them that's what I wanted. No wonder he didn't get it for me when I asked him to! And his gift to me was a new camera!! Not the fancy one like you have Christyne, but one that I can actually use since I'm techie challenged! If you recall (Karen) my old one was on the fritz (sp?) and doing fuzzy screen thingies....I take back all the whining I did about him a few days ago...he's not a complete lost cause....

Hmmm...now how to break it to him that I'll be placing a pretty big SU order in the near future...wanna take advantage of Sale-A-Bration.....

Big fluffy snow is falling here. Pretty.
I forgot that I might leave the house on Monday because there is free skating at the arena and the squids will want to go.

ITA!!!!

Though, my DH was indeed out the door at about 4 a.m. He returned with a Wii as well as Wii Sports Resort and about a 1/2 dozen blu-ray discs. I'm letting him sleep till he decides to get up!

Happy Boxing Day everyone!

Teresa, can you PLEASE send some snow to Mississauga???

No shopping for me either! Yesterday was busy enough! Diana, when I read your list, I thought it was Christyne's. You are going to be one busy family!
The snow has stopped here now. I am so glad that all that rain did not melt away all the snow. I would hate for my grandsons to get here tomorrow (so excited!) with no snow on the ground.
I too have been supremely blessed to have all you ladies as friends, rooting for me, and sending wonderful cards. Thanks so much. It's great to have this wonderful forum for sharing our frustrations, hopes and good times.

Looks like if you want snow you will have to get freezing rain first.

Hmmm...not sure if I want the freezing rain first...how much snow exactly? Maybe the freezing rain is worth it if it's lots of snow.

I'm working on your altoid tin swap Teresa...it's not the idea I found the other day, but it's still a good idea...at least I think it is - LOL! And...mine will have stuff in them!

Possibly up to 10cm total accumulation over the next 6 days. That is the best I can do.
Cool, did you think of an even cuter idea for the swap? I was working on the winter wonderland swap and find I need your stamp set again. Maybe I can use it when we get together on the 28th? The bookmark needs the quotation from Season Of Friendship to finish it off because it looks to bleak without it. Maybe also needs the snow flake stamped in white also. Or maybe I should just give you the other one I did at Diana's with the blue ribbon.

I can bring the stamp set when we get together...or you can use the ones you made at Diana's. Whatever works for you!

Great, yes, please bring it because whatever I decide is for the swap, these ones have to be finished.
I've finished one swap this weekend and have been working on my motorcycle cards. I haven't got as far as I thought I would...I think it's from this evil cold I've been suffering through.

Hi all ~ Hope you had a fabulous holiday!
BF and I actually went to Best Buy. We lucked out and got a parking spot immediately, but it was PACKED in there. We didn't end up buying anything though... lol They had a great TV on sale, but they were out of stock, so still no big screen for us........ BF can't make up his bloody mind!

Diana... I thought you BOUGHT the Keurig? Or.... was that Christyne? I"m confuuuused

Yay on the new camera! At least now you don't have to deal with issues.

I *may* venture to Michael's today...... maybe...

Well bf put some thought into xmas this year.. i got some cuttlebug folders (which I may exchange for something else) and a ribbon organizer, wiper blades for my car, new hello kitty pajamas, a game for my DS and a t-shirt that says "I (heart) boys who sparkle" LOL!! I love it! (but i think I need a bigger size.... lol!!

Diana, which Keurig did you get?
Karen, when he does make up his mind you'll be glad to have a big tv too just don't let him know it. Bob wants me to get a tune up for the car soon and get new wiper blades. That sorta sounds crappy but really that means they want you to keep coming back home safely.
Still working on my motorcycle cards.

oh I was all ready to buy that tv.... don't get me wrong.. lol
we found it onine and had it in the cart, etc..... but he didn't want to buy it because he wasted to do the financing at the store which you can't do online, etc. so he made a good point, he said maybe we shouldn't buy it if we have to finance it, its not something we need. Point well made, so we wait.

he may still change his mind, but i can't argue with reasoning like that!
Shh.. don't tell him I just bought the last 4 seasons of The Wire on DVD... they were on sale on Amazon! I'll give them to him for his bday in April.. haha

Karen- Christyne bought the Keurig and I was contemplating getting it. When I mentioned to DH that it was something that I wanted, he kinda changed the subject...I didn't think much of it until Christmas Day...lol, he is thoughtful in his own way I guess...

Teresa- it's the B70 model, same as the one that Christyne has. It brews both hot and cold beverages and has 4 different sizes to pick from....woohoo!!!

Good for you for not financing a tv Karen...they go on sale on the time and your bf is right, it's not something that you need so why go into debt for it right??? It's not like it's stamping supplies or a new handbag or anything like that! just kidding...

Sounds like you got great prezzies this year! Woohoo...maybe they're learning! But like you, I'm still waiting for a sparkly thing on my finger preferably at least 1.5 karats but I'll settle for a nice 1.25

Teresa- sounds like your DH is sweet and thoughtful in his own wonderful way. I saw the commercial for the silicone coated wipers at Canadian Tire and they look like a really smart idea. I'm thinking of getting a pair for my car, would make driving so much easier if those messy nasty streaks were gone!

Hope that everyone is relaxing and enjoying their holidays!

So glad to hear that you had a great Christmas Janet! Too bad that you have to go back to work tomorrow already! Oh well...a few days off is better than none, right?

Anyone making New Year's resolutions???

Oh, I was also thinking that if it's ok with everyone, maybe we can move our get together from the 28th to the 25th that way Ina can make it. I noticed a few posts back that Ina can only make the 25th or 26th since she works the rest of the week but Christyne can't do the 26th. I meant to comment on this earlier but kinda forgot with my hectic schedule. If everyone is agreed on Monday the 25th then we can go ahead and pick a place and time.

The 25th is much better for me. I was going to have to change things around to make it for the 28th but now I won't have to.
Did everyone wake up to fresh snow today?

Hi All! A quick check in before we run out and get some things for Christian's birthday dinner. It's just grandparents and godmother today for dinner and cake, Thursday will be the BIG party...lol (still gotta get some things for that day too)....

Looks like the 25th is gonna be the day??? Sushi was mentioned a while back, is that what we're going to do this time? It doesn't really matter to me where we go. I know that wherever it is, fun times are going to be had!

Hope everyone has a GREAT day!

No snow here either *pout* Green Christmases are SO depressing!

The 25th works for me!

As for resolutions, I am resolving to be a happier and healthier me in 2010!

We've got snow here! Cold winds too!
As far as resolutions go...I went to Jenny today. I gained 13 pounds since this summer. I hope to have most of it off by the 25th of January.
I should just save up and buy my own diamond ring. I bought my own diamond earrings by saving $1 a day until I had enough, then I told him I won them in a draw at the jewellery store. Can't remember if I ever told him the truth about how I got them.

I got my diamond earrings because DH forgot my birthday not long after I moved to Toronto. He has been here for about 18 months (for a job) and I wanted to finish my schooling in Montreal (where it was cheap at the time!), so we did the long distance engagement thing for 18 months.

I moved to Toronto in the April and my birthday was in the June. My parents sent flowers to where I worked and when DH (then fiance) picked me up, he asked what the flowers were for and I burst into tears. He asked if someone had died, which only made things worse - UGH!!!

The next day I had diamond earrings and he hasn't forgotten a birthday since - LOL! I guess spending $400 will do that to a guy!

I just got back from hours of shopping at Square One. We went with a friend of ours, our token 3rd wheel. I loved it because the two boys would shop the boy section and i could take a little extra time in the girl section. Also our friend is good at giving an opinion soooo unlike bf that doesn't really pay attenion.. lol

I also discovered there's a BCBG in there! I LOVE BCBG stuff. I didn't of course go crazy, but just got one little vest that will go with these awesome boots I got in BC. I can use it as an excuse to go for munchies in january... hehe.. "babe i got new clothes, I have to wear them SOMEWHERE>>>> " LOL

Lots of snow here and it is bitter cold..............-14 with a wind chill of -23! I'm on line to find our how much that is in F. degrees to tell my grandson. My son arrived safely on Sunday, after 1 hour wait to cross the border and then 1 hour in customs because he was travelling with three kids and no mom, and he made the mistake of telling them he was separated. Then they had to check to make sure he wasn't kidnapping them!
The kids are having a blast in the snow!

Hey Ina, my car said it was -12 here this morning and I looked that up to tell american friends and it said its -10.4F...

glad your son arrived safe & sound! How's the relationship? perhaps next time he can get a letter from his ex. That's what my bf does. he gets a letter from his dd's mom that says he has her permission to take them out of the country. I believe if its notarized, its a smooth process.

Good morning everyone! Only a dusting of snow here and FREEZING cold! DH had to venture out to work this morning and he said the windchill was -25 C - BRRRRRRR!!!! I'm going out this afternoon for a bit, but not long if it's that cold!

DD got all kinds of cake decorating stuff (Karen - DH went to Bulk Barn at Sq. 1 on Christmas Eve and found MORE Wilton stuff...the WHOLE STORE was 50% off because they are remodeling!), so I need to go buy her some icing sugar to play with - LOL!

Plus, I haven't left the house since December 23rd and while the idea of hibernating till after New Years sounds good IN THEORY, in practice, I'm going a little stir crazy!

DD is supposed to be under "house arrest" (to keep the germs at bay) till school starts, but we're taking her with us for our short outing...I threatened to put one of those toddler tethers on her to make sure she didn't try to escape - BAHAHAHAHA!!!

Maybe she should wear a face mask? its bitterly cold out there & people do have colds....!! and people are disgusting!

make sure you bundle her up!
Sweet deal on the wilton stuff! I gave SIL Hello, Cupcake (book) for xmas and now she wants to go get a set of icing bags and tips, etc. so she can make the cuppy cakes! BF thinks i know nothing, but when I buy his family gifts, they end up loving them! When will he learn I'm always right? LOL
