I bought a new car!! 1996 Cavalier. 4 door, 5spd. I LOVE it! I am getting it Tuesday. It's a private sale and the car is in excellent shape. Rob is going to drive the Grand Am until the lease is up in 2 years and then we're going to get another truck. We are in the process of selling his. We need something more reliable, and since he couldn't find anything he liked I picked out a car! Very exciting for me. I can't wait to get it.
Well, I had a lady come today from the Welcome Wagon, welcoming me to Sackville. Which is ironic because I grew up in Sackville. Well, this was an older, very prim and proper lady. Very nice, but proper. In the middle of this meeting, Colby looks at her and says: Lady, you are full of piss. Thanks mom and dad. She left shortly after that. Out of the mouths of babes, right?
Well, we are all settled and now that I live so close to mom and dad, I hardly ever see my kid! It's so nice, dad picks up Colby in the afternoons around 1ish and then takes him to go get mom and then I have a couple hours of me time until I go to work. As much as I am in love with my son, it's really nice to have an hour or 2 of downtime before going to work. We met up with mom in the grocery store today and as soon as he saw her, he had to go with her. So, I was promptly told to "go home mom". No loyalty at all. We went to see Shrek 2 yesterday. What a fabulous movie. Gramma Jeannine came over to look after Colby and he cried when she left. Again, no loyalty. Colby is very luck to have so many people around who absoutely adore him. He went to Gramma's on Saturday night with Rob for supper and she made him a beautiful new jacket. When we got up the next morning, (because I wasn't there when he got the jacket) he went running to show me and said "mommy, look at my favorite new jacket gramma made me" and he hasn't taken it off yet.
Oh, and Genevieve if you're reading this, I can't get to my computer and I don't have your email address. I still don't have long distance set up on my phone yet. Email me and let me know if you're coming up on the long weekend. You'll probably want to know where we live!
Well, we are finally somewhat settled. I am still to this day waiting for my high speed. I gave up waiting for my phone and went with eastlink. Aliant is still on strike, greedy bastards. My opinion on this is if you don't like what you're being paid, quit, give the job to someone who will work for that money. How much money are they making now walking up and down the road looking like fools with signs around their necks? I say fire them all. Colby loves his new room. He is settled in well. He got really sick last weekend and stopped eating. Finally he is now starting to eat again. I ended up sleeping in his bed with him for 3 nights. It is not very comfortable. We went out and bought paint for Colby's room and the livingroom. I can't wait until we get the whole house painted.
