Kaylie celebrates!

I had a wonderful weekend. On Feb. 16, 2002 a very precious pink bundle or pure sweetness was born into our family. Kaylie celebrated her Birthday by having a few friends over for a sleep-over and I felt like going to the party would just be spending time more with her Mom than with her. I invited her to come over this weekend instead. I picked Kaylie up from school and took her shopping for her gift. But our first stop was at  Kurios Books for a Latte and browse. Kaylie is a girl after my own heart....she loves to read! She picked up  a 2-book series as part of her just can't have enough books!! From there we went to Warehouse One and found her 4 cute tops. We did some more exploring through the stores before heading home and eating a well deserved supper. An evening of watching movies and browsing through pictures and me telling stories.
Sat. morning we pulled out the baby pics and scrapping supplies and scrapped the whole morning. Mom came to pick up Kaylie just after lunch. We had fun :)

My Friend the Shredder

No, Shredder is not a guy with sharp teeth and a motor-mouth...he is indeed a paper shredder. One thing I procrastinate at is filing papers and bills. I hate doing it and everytime I go to find something I vow that I will get it all organized and filed away properly...if I've said it once I've said it a thousand times...ugh!! This time I was serious and ...oh my!!!...what a job!! I had paper going back to the 1990s....I know, hey??!! So, I've been spending a lot of my day just sorting and shredding and filing and today I can honestly say that I'm on the home stretch....hallelujah and pass the hand lotion :)

Yesterday, after a very full day doing my grocery shopping and a bit of other running around, I came home to discover that DH was home already.....home from working north of Fort Nelson, on the Sierra(not that I know where exactly that is) for two weeks. With DH new job, for now he is on a two weeks out and then one week home. We've gotten all the running around stuff done and we're now settling in to enjoy his week at home. I've missed him terribly this time, so to solve the fact that we weren't able to communicate via our lap-tops, we've gotten me a cell phone so at least we'll be able to text and stay in touch. Not a bad toy for me to play with either.

I came across this Blog today! What an encouraging article. I think we all have an inner voice that makes us focus more on our faults than our beauty. I agree with Teresa, in that I have seen a pic of myself and all I can focus in are the double chins hanging down to my knees. But we deprive our loved ones of precious memorable moments and life is too short to get all hung up on what we perceive to be ugly. I guess my challenge to myself is to make this the "Year of Faye"  
"So you’re feeling too fat to be photographed? . . . Ok. But you’re the only one who notices. The rest of us are too caught up in loving you."

New Beginning

This winter has been like riding a thermometer roller-coaster ride. The temps go from extreme frigid to mild, from blustery winds lowering the wind chill factors risking frostbite and then back to Chinook-mild winds that melt the snow and creating icy conditions in the chill nights!!
With this New Year's arrival came a new job for DH. He goes away for two weeks and then home for a week (for this project anyhow!) It's not the easiest schedule, but there is plenty of room for advancement and for now I can hang in there. It's a huge relief and blessing for DH to have landed such an awesome opportunity for us.
