'Nuff said! I am VERY happy!!

2) Oreo Candy Cane Ice Cream
Y'all, I need this in my life, every day, every day!! My brother bought it for us when they were here, and it was soo good, that I bought another one. Yum!! 

3) Christmas Everything!!

Five On Friday

I am linking up two weeks in a row!!! I remember when I did it every week...maybe I will try to get back into never know!

Here are my five faves this week.

1) A Sense of Humour.

In case you haven't read my posts on our car (you can catch up here), you won't know that our car is having problems. Yes, STILL!!! Ughm! It is at the shop until Monday or Tuesday. At least we have a sense of humour about it.

2) Christmas Craft Fairs

Ok, I haven't gone to any yet, but I hope to start going once we have our car back and some money to spend. Ha! I love this time of year, though. Our city comes to life!!

3) Remembrance Day/Long Weekend

Thank u to all of those who have fought/are fighting for our freedom. My Gr-Gr Uncle Jack, my Gr. Uncle Archie both faught in WW 1, and WW 2, respectively. My grandpa, tho didn't fight was on the Navy base in Esquilmalt. My Gr-Gr. Uncle was wounded in Vimy Ridge, and killed in Ypres. My late Father-in-Law helped in the Danish Undergroun…

A Comedy Of Errors

Oh boy.....all I can do right now is laugh! Our car is STILL having issues! If you read this post from a couple of weeks ago, you will know that we have been having problems with our car. We thought it was a battery issue, but when we had the batter tested, it was good. Last Thursday, Anker took it to a mechanic to have some diagnostics done on it, to see if it was the alternator. It was, so Anker was able to grab one, then he put it in himself (he was able to rig a charger to it, so that he could drive it for short periods of time). Last Friday morning, the car started ok, but seemed a bit off when I went to turn it on after work. I had a few errands that I was going to do, but I just wanted to come home. I was planning on heading up to my SIL's for a movie night, but even driving it a short distance, it sounded not right. I just stayed home most of last wknd. I finally decided to take it to a local shop that we have used before. On Tuesday, I limped it to the shop, with my SIL c…

Struggling and Anxiety

I feel like things have been a bit stressful for us these last few weeks. Please don't get me wrong...I am very happy with life for the most part. But there are things that have really gotten us down. A few weeks ago, our car started giving out on us. I ended up taking it to a shop today (they are great!), and it is going to cost us $135. Now, yes, we are VERY thankful that it isn't a big price tag (for now! I am certain that there is something else wrong with it...the mechanic says, but for us, it might as well be $1,035.00, or $1300.00. We had to borrow the money from my parents to get the alternator (which was definitely part of the problem), so we will want to pay them back ASAP. We have a few bucks in savings, but that is getting depleted from using it for every day stuff, and some of the car repairs. If we lived closer to the centre of town (where I work, shop, etc), I would just say to heck with it, sell the car, and take the bus, but we are still fairly far o…

What Infertility Feels and Looks Like

****I am partnering with Fertility Matters Canada to blog about topics surrounding infertility. I was hoping to get a new one out, but as usual, I have left it to the last minute, soI just haven't had the chance to do it. AND SO, since tomorrow is "my" day, I thought that I would combine a few posts(though it is a new one for/with them) that I had done up relating to infertility. I in no way get any compensation from doing this. I do it b/c I want to get the word about infertility out there. Head on over, and take a look!!****
 What does infertility look and feel like?

It knows no race, religion, or nor does it care whether you are rich or poor. It is lurking in the halls of your workplace, gym, school, and church...everywhere. It is the woman in the power business suit, the man biking in the park. The CEO of your company, the pastor of your church, the teacher at your local school. I could go on and on, but you get the idea. It doesn't care that you have bough…

Friday Favourites

Hiya!!! I am still around...despite not posting much :) I just been busy, and lazy, and not really feeling much like blogging, but have no fear...I am here today!!

I haven't done a FOF, I thought I would join up this week.

First off, though, I want to talk about what happened at/in Abbotsford Senior Secondary this week. You may or may not know that two teens where stabbed this last wk. One of them has died. My heart broke when I heard this. I cannot believe that this happened (I also can't believe that there is a VIDEO showing the stabbing...I am SO GLAD that CBC has chosen not to post it!)....I was shocked and angry. This is another needless, senseless tragedy that has yet happened in yet ANOTHER school I tend to think that this stuff doesn't happen in Canada, but of course, we all know that it does. This has hit home even more, as I now work in a school. I tend to think (as we all "should"), that our schools are safe...for kids, teachers, support st…
