Online Dating - not so bad.

A boy asked me out for coffee!! (actually 2 guys did, but I'm not 100% sure of one of them)... So, my friend the Hermanator asked me why it says I do drugs >3 times a week on my profile. Oooops. Perhaps the reason for the snake breeders and "body art" guys emailing me on this site??!! So, I've amended that to read that I do not do drugs. I've been emailing back with a guy who lives here in Borington, he's a teacher at a local high school. He seems to meet some of my, I might tell him ok for the coffee. Oh, the dating website is I know, cheesey name. Faith momentarily restored in the online dating.

E & THE motorcycle

Whew. Another busy weekend!

1) Jewellery party @ KL's house...very fun...purchased some loverly earings for me! Gabbed, ate, purchased. A good time.
2) Got my "colours" done by friend Jules. Drum roll..... I am a SUMMER! So, now I am equipped with my 'swatches' of the summer colours that I look good in!
3) T.W's 2nd bday party! My party animal son decided to not have his nap and ended up falling asleep in the car and stayed asleep in the indoor playland for about 40 min...but, when he woke up he was ready to partay! He loved the motorized motorcycles...would not get off of it!
4) Online dating... do I have to be really specific with these people? Please if you are covered in tatoos and are a snake breeder I'm not interested. Seriously. He had a pic of himself with snake on his arm. I'm about to give up AGAIN with the online dating. Too time consuming and the people are never what I want.
5) E started @ his new "school" today...montesorri 1/2 day and daycare 1/2 day. He seemed quite happy when I left... Mommy has to go to work now... "ok, bye mommy". I called @ noon to find out how he was doing and his teacher said he was very happy, loved playing outside with the other kids, had 3 pieces of bread for lunch and loved the pudding! Of course!
Happy Birthday Tay - we really enjoyed your party!! :)

Spur of the moment

Ex had E yesterday and at 4:30pm he asked if he could keep E overnight. I said it was fine. So, there I was wondering what am I going to do with this "free time".... Called my friend K.L and asked if she wanted to go see Derailed w/ Jennifer Aniston... she was happy to come with. It was quite a good movie .... lots of twists/suspense. AND K.L had passes, so the movie and treats were free! LOVE IT. So, last minute/spur of the minute and inexpensive!

Didn't do much, but it felt like a busy weekend!

Was at Toys R Us by 9:30am on Sat morning...looking for one of E's xmas gifts...Found it, not the same as I saw at Target but price was right and he'll like it. Was hard to get E out of that store (wig out #1 of the weekend).
Grammie and Bops came by to fix my no heat issue...I went with Bops to ManLand...Home Depot. Got a new thermostat...that seemed to do the trick and now we have heat!
Of course, E wouldn't nap at his regular time ... so he feel asleep in his Elmo chair at 4pm. Brought him to his crib and he slept till 5:30... I watched Season 3, Episode 4 of Six Feet Under... I LOVE that show..totally addicted to it. E and I played outside after dinner @ was quite mild out...and we looked at the "Christmas Trees".... he loves the lights on the trees.
Sunday morning the Girl Chichs' , E and I went to Springridge farm to do the "Xmas Activities"... we met Lewis, J and her neighbourhood friends there.... (Wig out #2 of the weekend occured when we tried to leave...had to get E out of the huge sandbox - he was NOT happy to leave).... Was fun and cute for the kids...we made gingerbread men...they baked them and then we decorated them... also painted on a glass ornament, which E then dropped and it broke into a million pieces. Too bad. E didn't seem to mind tho. (avoiding another wig out).
E would n't nap again (seeing a pattern here??!!) .... so we drove up to Grammie and Bops house...he feel asleep in the car and then slept in Grammie's bed for another hour. Many a wig out followed and a time out... He doesn't like time outs it seems... :) I've got to get reading my latest parenting book 1, 2, 3 Magic.
I fell asleep at 9:30 and missed the last part of Desperate Housewives....
So, we sure didn't do much this weekend...but we felt tired by the end of Sunday!!!

Too cold...indoors and out

So, my heat isn't working...will get on Union Gas this morning. E woke up at 11pm last night (he's had a bad cough this week) so I brought him into bed with me... he flip flopped for 2 hrs, took up majority of bed, coughed and was grinding his teeth!! Good God. Yep, I'm feeling a tad tired this morning. He was up at 7am moving my hair out of my face and whispering "mommy wake up, time to get up".... ARGH. Everything was fine until it was time to get dressed. He was not interested. Was not listening to me at all (early signs of MANhood). I even used Auntie TT's tag line "E, please listen to mommy's words".... didn't work. So, we struggle to get diaper and clothes on, then finally made it downstairs, struggled to get boots, coat, mitts, hat (don't ya love winter??!!) on. Finally get in the car and then he says "No school" and starts to get mad that we're going to school. double ARGH. He was happy enough to get to class - his buddy Aaron came running up to him and they went off playing. See ya kid! Now, I'm at work and have to call Union Gas to get heat in my house. Not good to not have heat when its -3 degrees outside. AND its only 9:30am.

No Coldplay Tics for me :(

Tics went on sale yesterday for Coldplay (am exp holders) I tried to get thru for 1 hr...finally did, she said she could get me 4 tics, 2 and 2 together. Then we got cut off. ARGH. So I called back, another 1/2 waiting on phone. This girl said that she could get me 4 tickets but none of them would be sitting together. Ok, so, lets go to a concert but sit with strangers. No thanks. VERY disappointing.

New to this...

Ok, new to the blogging...don't know if I'm doing this right, but we will see!
