~ and because we snapped a second one... :D
Off to my moms last night, kinda late 'cuz super-suz is a running goddess now... (she put in a 17 km run last night with her running mates), to bring my mom new "art cards" ... designed things to be placed below a painting in an art show to show price, name and artist... and help her get a cd ready to submit pictures to another juried show... I so love that I get to help her with this stuff...
Oh, and my da!!! he sent me a bunch of pics to update his web site... he's "carving" wooden iris's... you can't imagine... I'll show you when I get his site updated. awesome!!
Today dawned gray and threatening... Suz was up extra early and gone by 7:00 *(breakfast thing at work...) So I packed up the boys for their LAST DAY OF SCHOOL.
Oh OH!!! and (hahaha) I went into Eds room last night ... just when he was just about asleep but still had eyes moving around... and "gasp"... he put his little arms out for a hug!!! you need to understand that Ed does not kiss the daddy or let the daddy kiss him... (unless I sneak attack with kisses)... He'll let me hug him but he normally keeps all his hugs and kisses for mommy. It's just his way... and I understand... but Last Night was groove station baby... his little arms wrapped my neck when I leaned down - I didn't try to kiss him... that would have blown it - I save those night'night kisses for when I go to bed ... and he's asleep. :D haha) and I got this great out-of-the-blue hug. :) It was nice. :D
~ green flts
~ dark green dress pants (fit? why yes they do... ~ beams)
~ black t shirt that kinda looks cool...
~ and hiding the black t under a beige short sleeve dress shirt that looks... less cool. :)
~ nice sox. I was in the front hall... putting on my 'dressy shoes' for work and made the command decision to toss out every pair of sox like the ones I had on.. they looked awful... (too big, heel sticking out over the shoe) and they don't have any appeal comfort wise beyond just actually being a pair, and in my drawer... you know, sorta like the drunk girl at the grade 10 party at so-and-so's house...) So now I have on nice sox and a garbage can full of black ugly sox.
~ big day... no score from the Netherlands yesterday (training company... dutch...) So I'm betting today is THE DAY... (sick with panic)
~ have to nail down two "service chains" at work and build up enough of a picture to meet with boss lady and give her the big "project update"
~ rainbow trout for dinner... picked it up last night...
~ Ed soccer game tonight... and if the rain holds off... there'll be skateboarding... but ... it'll likely rain.
~ NO 24 last night... so definitely tonight. :)
~ ... that my friends would please join with me in sending some good vibes out to lynspin. She's a good girl... she's facing challenges that you cannot imagine... and the power of positive vibes is a whole lot better than nothing. Please send dear Lynner some good thoughts.

A very heartfelt and big smooshy happy birthday out to The-Jen... whataboutjen. You're a grand adventure of a girl... and I do very much hope the year ahead rewards you with good health and great reasons to smile. :) Have a great day sugar-jen.
I told a strange woman she was "wonderful". She works here... she's older than me, but I have no idea by how much... She had to meet with me... and she was electric. If she was a wind-up toy, I'd say she was over-wound and trying to make it right by letting off a huge burst of kinetic energy. Her hair was messy, short, dark and ... looked like you could really get your hand locked in it if you tried to comb through... her eyes were excited as she talked about this very boring work subject... and she moved... no sitting still in a chair for her... After 5 minutes with her I had to stop her and tell her I thought she was "just wonderful..." She laughed, sat back, thanked me, and then carried on. :)
Be wonderful... it's a great thing to do to the world around you.
It's a great day in West Ottawa... The guy who KILLED an 18 year old girl walking home from her night shift at a Wendy's (fast food) last summer... turned himself in. A 25 year old "nice boy from down the street"... brutalized her and dragged her into a nature trail and likely raped .. then killed her. Fucker. But he turned himself in... so maybe there's actual remorse in there somewhere. Bottom line... young women have been scared... and this is a good reason to claim a little calm. :D
Ok... fine. I'll try watching BB "all stars"... but I have my reservations. I watched part of one of the "pick me pick me pick me" show and was astounded by how much I disliked the people we had to choose from. However... I'm all about enjoying watching people suffer ... well, people that work hard for the chance to suffer.
Ok... time to be busy...
and maybe a little bit wonderful.
