Are We In The Clear??

Is spring finally here?? Oh how I'm hoping so!! The snow is gone, woohoo! This past weekend was beautiful, and it helped Project Snow Melt quite nicely. The weather people were calling for rain this afternoon but it's still quite nice out!

We're crossing fingers that things work out as soccer season has started and Kamryn is so excited. She is such a sporty girl and I'm still trying to figure out where that came from?? Not me, that's for sure.

Summer seems so much closer than before and we've been planning our trek back to Winnipeg. The girls are already excited. Kamryn has all kinds of plans of what she'd like to do. Morgyn will spend part of the time with her Dad/Step-Mom and 3 other sisters. My Mom and nephews are going to drive back to Edmonton with is for a couple of weeks. Bruce is excited as he hasn't seen my nephews in 2 years. It sucks when your hubby can't travel with you and doesn't get to come on vacation.

But you know what, next year he does! Yippeeeee.

Bruce switched jobs and started working in the city almost 2 months ago. This lead to him being home every night, a big change from being gone 6 mights out of 7 on the road. Now he is dispatching and not driving at all, which is a big change for him. He drove semi-trucks for 23 years. But being home every night has been good, we're not killing each other yet (he he he we're both really to passive for that anyways).

Anyways off to pick Kamryn uo from school and enjoy the sun!

Spring Has Sprung

Yup these pictures are no joke, they were taken this past weekend. While spring has sprung all over it seems that we had a cruel joke played on us. I'm so over snow, my yard looks like it did back in January but it's April. I guess I know why I hadn't put away the snow pants/jackets/mitts/scarf etc, so I either jinxed myself or I had a foretelling that it was to come LOL.

It's warming up which is good. Kamryn was suppose to have her 1st soccer practice on Sunday, I'm thinking it's not going to happen. Unless they trade in their cleats for snowshoes.

SO here's hoping this will be the last blast of winter. As I said, I'm tired of snow!

Wrong Wrong Wrong

Tonight American Idol was all wrong, but of course that is jmo. But I really do believe the voters got it oh so wrong tonight. I mean Carly could not have looked more shocked if she had tried, she truly looked as if she believed she was going home. However my heart belonged to this guy, sigh.

It started back when they were still eliminating them from 100, and Michael sang Bohemian Rhapsody. He didn't even sing that much of the song, they don't really at that point. But what he did sing had me hooked from then and there on.

I use to like David Archuleta, but the last little while he just hasn't been impressing me. I guess because I heart Michael (yes I'm obsessed LOL. Now what is a girl suppose to do?? I guess hope that someone out there calls him up and says come one Michael we have a deal for you! I would be the 1st in line to buy his record.

It seems as though spring just might be here to stay, I say this with baited breath after the snow we had last weekend. It had to be a good 5cm at least. But this weekend however they are forecasting temperature in the 20's (or 68F). Now how beautiful is that!!!!

Of course the downfall is I have to work. Which I have been doing for the last 6 weeks but just on weekends, and likely only till the beginning of May. We have a Full House Lottery on here right now and I'm working in these fan-freakin-tastic houses selling tickets to some lucky people, 3 of which are going to walk away with million dollar prizes for $100. It's insane. But they support 2 of the hospitals in the city which will see them both earning approximately $3 million a piece. Can't go wrong there. The houses well all I can say is WOW. They each have a special feature 1. a 2 storey library 2. an indoor lap pool and 3. a golf simulator. I wish I could figure out how to post the link but I still suck at that. But seriously google Full House Lottery 2008 and take a peak, it's worth a few minutes of your time.

But I'm going to head out and mourn the loss of my A.I. favorite. Have I mentioned I'm crushed?? ;-)
