Last Week and Last Wknd Updates.

I thought I would do a few "real" posts, instead of doing blog hops all the time.

This last wknd was pretty tame, as I pretty much just worked, ate and slept. Anker camped at my parents' over the wknd, and he said he had a great time. I like to have the bed to myself once in awhile. I will put the laptop on his side of the bed, and pop in FRIENDS or a movie.

I worked 12 hour days both Saturday and Sunday, and 7 hours each day Friday and Monday. They were good, but tiring shifts. I did manage to watch a couple of movies, sit outside, and go on a picnic, plus do a couple of Wal Mart runs. It was a good variety of things. In the evenings, I came home, and grabbed some wine and strawberries and relaxed, had a bath and went to bed.

 Friday morning, I helped get Anker ready to leave. I went to a couple of stores to grab things for his trip. I went to work. Thursday, I went to Wal Mart and to the Dollar store to grab some things for my friends Bridal shower, and a late Father&#…

Sunday Social

Happy Monday!!! I need to a few "regular" posts, and I have a few in my head, but I thought I would start with Sunday Social!!

1. What’s your favorite scary movie?
I am not a big fan of scary movies/thrillers, but I did like Deceived when I was young. It stars Goldie Hawn. I also watched Unknown yesterday at work. It's not scary, but a thriller, and I like that, too. 2. What is your favorite weird TV show you think no one else watches?
I am not sure that it's weird, but I do watch 19 Kids and Counting. I KNOW other people watch it, but I don't think it's very popular right now. I also still watch ER and FRIENDS on a regular basis (I have all the seasons. Now THAT is weird. LOL) 3. What is the song you can sing all the words to without any music?
I can't think of any at the moment, but I am sure there are a few.  Usually whatever Christian song we are singing at church or that is popular, or whatever I am listening to at the moment. That goes with/for any song…

Five on Friday

Happy Friday!!!

Here are my FoF for this week:

First day of Summer.
Then it's 6 months til Christmas. You're welcome.

A weekend Alone.

Hubby is going camping this wknd, so I am going to be alone this weekend. And working. Yay me!


A little (financial) Help from Family and Friends.

Because of our trip, we have been a bit short on cash. Thankfully, our aunt and uncle gave us a bit of money. They are so sweet. I also got some $ from my friend for my bday. Oh, and I got paid today. Not much, as I only worked one day, but hey, it's something.


Honey Boo-Boo

I may or may not have recorded it yesterday when it TLC had a marathon on. I watched the last few minutes of an episode, thought it was funny, so I then recorded the rest of them that were on yesterday. We'll see on how much I actually like it.


Finally getting our Patio cleaned.

I spent nearly an hour cleaning up our patio the other day. I think that was the first time I had cleaned it since I move…

Father's Day

This past FD was a bit strange for me. For the past few years, we usually ALWAYS at my parents for both MD and FD. We went for MD. You can read about it here. We didn't to my parents' for FD, mainly b/c we didn't really have the money for gas, I was on call, but also b/c Anker was sick. So, we stayed home.

I picked up my aunt on the way, and we went to church. Anker was sick, so he stayed home. The service was nice. They asked all the men to stand up, which was great, b/c I am SO glad they didn't exclude those who aren't fathers. The kids went around and dropped of Dad's Rootbeer and Cookies. I asked for one for Anker. He LOVED the Root Beer. This is a brand we never get. Shelley and I went to Tim Horton's for a coffee, snack and chat.

The rest of the day itself was ok. I was a bit sad seeing all the FD posts on my news feed, as well as the blogging posts. I felt a bit sad that we didn't go home to my parents' and also that Anker isn't a father…

VIctoria/Vancouver Vacation, Part 2 VIc AND Van

EEK! The last travel post took OVER THREE HOURS! I hope this won't take as long! I am actually at Starbucks hanging out, doing blog and Facebook stuff. I have been here for a few hours already. I would have already left, but my friend texted me (I was already here) asking me if she wanted to meet up with me. We had a nice hour long catch up visit!!! I have been looking at blogs, and doing Facebook...and I did two posts already! I need to do a "normal" post sometime..maybe tomorrow...:)

So..back to our trip (I know you were ITCHING for me to finish/continue, right?)

Oh, but first, let me say congratulates to my blogger friend (I say "friend" loosely, bc she probably didn't know I exsisted until I added her on FB a little while ago) Louise at coming in SECOND in the Vancouver Mom's top 30 Bloggers (yes, there is a link, no, I don't care to hunt it down, mainly bc it has already past)!
