What a week. Bitterly cold at the beginning forcing us to practically hibernate in our house for three days, and now it has warmed up from an icy temperature of -46C to a balmy -27C.
On Wednesday, we ventured out because I had to take R to the orthodontist. I mentioned earlier that I was hoping that one of his (he’s got two different ones) dental appliances would be able to be removed. Unfortunately the news was “no”. It’s better to keep it in for now. Ah well. He’s lived with it for nearly three years now – another year or two won’t hurt him.
After the dentist we got errands done, came home for lunch, and then moseyed over to our friendly neighbourhood neighbour, Dawn. We arrived a little after 1:30 pm and didn’t leave until – eh hem – 5:00 pm!! 😳 Nothing says staying out your welcome like waiting until her children are coming down asking about supper. Sorry, Dawn!! But it’s your fault, you know. You’re too good of company. 😉 Thanks again for having us. It was a welcome outing for us.
Yesterday morning for school, the kids played (the best learning happens that way, heh?) with the new balance scale I bought. R loved it so much that he spent a good hour and a half weighing stuff. I love that I could give him that time.
Last night, Adrian and I went to Weight Watcher’s. He lost another 3. something pounds. I didn’t do as well, though. Only .8 for me. As I’ve been posting, this week has been more of a challenge. Ah well. Next time’ll be better. Or not. What-everrr. I’mmmm breezy.
I’m not sure what I want to do today. We’ll do some school, of course, but then do I want to stay home and do laundry and the many household chores that need my attention? Or do I haul garbage and bottles into town? I think I’ll do the garbage. Yeah!!! 🙄
By the way, I have not plowed my driveway yet. This weekend, though. I’m not crazy enough to do it in -46C!
