Most cards done

Michael & I ran over to the post office this morning. I never can keep their hours straight. I hope I have the right amount of postage on the majority of the cards. i kept the heavier ones to be weighed and they needed more postage. I'm hoping the others are ok or I'll be getting 40+ back... We went to the bank also before coming home.

We had an early lunch since my dad came and got Michael for some ice fishing. They are going where it's safe to fish for a bit. It's too quiet around here. I got a few things done in the first 30 minutes or so and then wondered what to try and do next.... I can plan a whole day when he's gone but I'm not sure what time they are coming back so I don't want to start something and have him come home in the middle of it. Maybe I'll go read, or watch some adult tv ~ in other words not pbskids.

Chuc Mung Nam Moi

Sorry, I don't have the correct accents on my Happy New Year post.
Today we celebrated Tet, the Vietnamese New Year. It is the year of the Tiger.
We got to see a dragon dance and feed him lucky money for good luck through out the year. We had delicious food and had some fun. Michael also got to wear his new outfit- an Ao Dai- do not ask me to pronounce it unless you like hearing Vietnamese mangled beyond recognition. Michael had a blast beating a drum, running around and playing in a toy room set up for younger children.
After our party we came home. No nap today. I had to put the outfit in water to soak out stains. Why anyone thinks white pants on a young child is a good idea is beyond my comprehension.
We played outside for an hour. The mailman gave us our neighbor's mail which I put back in my neighbor's mailbox. Heaven only knows who got our mail. I wonder if the mailman comes in shelves fiction and genre at Roseville also....
Last night I was able to reserve our hotel for our WDW trip in Dec. Yes, it's early, but I got a great discount by booking this early and was able to get our first choice of resort. Thanks to all those who gave me input, especially Emily & Lynn. We will book our tickets and airline later. I think I might be able to get the tickets at MOA's Disney store from what the guidebook says, or I can always get them elsewhere.

Lovely Thanksgiving

It was quiet but lovely day. Michael & I went to my parents. Michael played with Grandpa, while Mom & I took a walk in the park. Michael & Grandpa joined us for bit. We had a lovely chicken for lunch. None of us are big on turkey. Michael tried pecan pie. He decided he liked it. He actually ate part of a dill pickle also.

His nap ended with a change of clothes. Luckily Grandma keeps spares. Dad burned up some sticks. Michael & I helped. We had our leftover chicken in soup for supper. We came home and packed, tomorrow we are off on a driving trip to Milwaukee. Dad is driving. I'm going to be trying to entertain Michael for 5+ hours in a car. Oh Joy. We return on Sunday. Still it will be nice to see my Aunt.

Windows 7

It was not nice to load, but the ned result has been fantastic. A week of no crashes rather than a crash every 30 minutes which what I was averaging with Vista. Bliss.

Well it's finally loaded. Still recovering from having it wipe out everything.

Short week ahead!

Well another 6 day week is over. Life gets so busy these days. Michael enjoys school and loves when we go to McDonalds before school. With 1.25 hours to get him, travel to school during rush-hour and eat, McDonalds or Subway are the most convient.

This next week will be interesting. I get to go to the Dentist again to finish with my crown. I have Thursday off due to MEA. My daycare provider tends not to work it. Our Saturday is booked up with 2 events, that I'm looking forward to in Washington County. Sunday, I'm thinking about Boo Zoo, I got the tickets today. The weather will probably decide what we'll be doing on Thursday & Friday.

I haven't worked on Michael's baby book since the scrapbook party. I did buy some more supplies and get some photos printed that I needed for it, but have not sat down and actually worked on it.

This morning was exciting chores like laundry and grocery shopping. We skipped church I really needed to catch up.

I just read that Philadelphia is closing all their free libraries. They have not had state money since July 31. They want their materials back and plan to close down by 10/2/09. Now that is truely depressing.
