I changed the look for the 3rd time on this blog, and I really like this one. Colby spent at least an hour today on the computer, NAGIVATING AROUND CBCKIDS.CA. My son, who is not yet three, has mastered how to navigate all through the site (there are many different rooms to play in) AND when he's done, he will turn off the monitor and the modem! My little boy is growing up much too fast. I took today and tomorrow as vacation days, so I get to spend 4 days home with him. I think we both needed it. We set up a fishtank today. Well, to be honest, the fish tank has been set up for a week but we got the fish today. They were actually given to us by a friend of BJ's, and they are HUGE! They are albino tinfoil barbs. Big white fish with pink eyes. Kassie and Anthony came out to spend the afternoon here and Anthony decorated the tank. That boy really has a talent for that. I will be taking pictures very shortly. And, speaking of pictures, here is the latest pictures I took on the weekend. We went to see Gary Beals on Tuesday at Mic Mac Mall where he was releasing his new CD. It is the first CD that I have bought in a long time. I must admit, I have a HUGE crush on Gary. He's just too cute for words.
BJ and Kelly have moved to Amherst. It is weird not having them 10 minutes away. Even though I didn't see them everyday, it's different now that I know that they are not there. At this point, I am very jealous of my brother as he was finally able to say goodbye to his 5 year history of working in a call centre. It will be nice for him to have a break from work and to just enjoy life. They will be back tomorrow and I'm going to meet up with him on Friday when Kelly has her surgery for her gall bladder.
The funniest thing happened with Colby on the weekend. Rob had the flash out for my camera and was replacing the batteries. When Colby asked what it was, Rob flashed the flash right in Colby's eyes. (Man, that sounds really mean). Colby then started grabbing at the air and then looked up and Rob and said, Daddy I caught the star! I thought Rob was going to pee his pants. Because, then, Colby wanted Rob to do it again so he could "catch the stars". We took Colby to the Oakmount Station on Sunday. It was a karaoke going away party for BJ and Kelly. Colby was fascinated. All he wanted to do was go up and "sing in the microphone". I eventually had to take him home because he was getting upset that he couldn't go up. I have pictures that I will be getting back tomorrow which of course will be on here by the end of the week.
I was just reading back over previous blogs and I found a comment from June 21st from anonymous that said Greetings from Newfoundland. I love comments, obviously I don't get a lot of them HINT HINT IF YOU'RE READING THIS but PLEASE tell me who you are when you do!
Well, I have been neglecting this blog and there is no excuse for it except that I'm tired. Rob and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversay a week late, as he had to work. We went to the Upper Deck on Saturday. We started by walking on the waterfront, which coincidently the Buskers are in town, and then went to dinner. And God love Rob, when we sat down at the Upper Deck, he put his hand on my menu before I could look and it and said, "Honey, the prices are very expensive here but you deserve it so don't freak out!". How well does this man know me. And the prices WERE expensive (Rob's steak dinner was 34.99 and my scallop pasta was 24.99). We had a 20.00 off coupon from the Entertainment Book which helped somewhat. Except Rob left a 12.00 $ tip!! I was mortified! I have never left a 12.00 tip anywhere in my life! I know it's suppose to be a percentage of the total but STILL! Colby has mastered potty training. He has to have a pull up on at night or he'll wet the bed. The funny thing is, he won't pee at all at night if he has the pull up on, but will pee if he doesn't. That's fine with me, I keep using the same pull up over and over again! I can't believe how big he's getting. I'm still trying to wrap my head around the fact that he's going to be 3! In 2 more years he's off to school!
I just finished watching the end of Outback Jack. I have never seen the show before, and only watched it as backround noise as I was reading. Well, what a corny show. The end of it, where Marissa was kicked off, was pathetic. She was bawling, he was bawling, and of course, I was bawling. I can't believe he picked her over the cold blond one. But again, without ever seeing the show, I have no idea the backrounds of the characters.
Kelly's sister had a baby on Thursday. His name is Cody and he's just too cute for words. Both mommy and baby are doing well. Cody he still battling jaundice and has been "suntanning'' under UV lights to bring down his billy ruben count. Colby has been in there 2 times and all he talks about is Lindsay and Baby Cody. Rob took him to see the Parade of Sail yesterday as the Tall Ships left port. They have some great pictures. I guess he was great downtown. Rob and Adam took him, and of course they 2 good looking men together with this good looking little boy look like the typical gay family. Sunday was our wedding anniversary. We have been married 6 years. It didn't feel like much of an anniversary as Rob worked and we are going to celebrate this weekend as we are both off. It was nice though. Mom called at 10AM to wish us happy anniversary and Kelly called later that day. Mom bought us a beautiful anniversary plate that looks really nice in the china cabinet. Oh, and for those who don't know already, I have been following the Weight Watchers Point System and to date have lost 22.8lbs! Go me! I am quickly running out of pants that fit me as they are all falling off, but it's a nice complaint to have!
