About time

I just went on and noticed that I hadn't posted in a while. Guess it is too late to talk about the Ikea trip. Oh well next time we go I'll tell you all about it.

Not a whole lot going on. Last weekend Patty's sister, her guy, and a good friend of Patty's came from Merritt for a visit. We were supposed to go out Friday night but the women went to Wal-Mart and the guys stayed home watching sports on tv or something. I had just picked up a digital box for our tv downstairs so we were checking out all the options. We were laughing at the titles for the pay per view porn channels as well as checking out the Pay On Demand stuff. One of the things you can get on the POD channel is survivor which I had missed the first two weeks so we got for 99 cents. Will probably watch the third one today. On the Saturday I went to football in Nanaimo after I had made breakfast for everyone. Eggs, bacon, pancakes, toast and coffee. And this wasn't just to help smooth over the fact that I was ditching everyone to go see a football game. They had planned on coming the week before but I was going to the Lions game and told Patty the following weekend would be better and then that way she could go with me. And I was right it was better cause I was only gone a few hours not 2 days LOL. They all went to Aunties and Mary and Adam showed up for a BBQ and then I went there after football. Always a fun time at Aunties. Sunday morning we went for breakfast then they had to head out and catch a ferry home. That's when we all sat back and got caught up on survivor. I think Patty is hooked now.

This weekend is a long weekend. Happy Gobble Gobble to everyone. My weekend was extended because the boss said there wasn't enough work for Friday so we took it off. Friday I had to go to school and pick up Ben. Seems like this kid that had been bullying Ben since last year wanted to fight Ben. He didn't have his friends behind him so Ben met him at lunch time. Kid changed his mind but Ben got in a couple to ease his frustrations from the last year. The principal was pretty good about it. Said he knew Ben was just saving face so instead of the minimum 3 day suspension and the suspension assignment Ben got 1 day and has to make up the work he is missing. Patty and I now have to go to see the principal Tuesday. The fight is supposed to be on youtube. If I find it I'll put a link. Ben is still playing guitar and taking lessons and seems to enjoy it. I think Patty got a bit on video the other day I'll have to check it out and post it.

Saturday was another football day. It was the first playoff game and after a slow start 17-10 at half time the final was 47-10. Last week the Raiders played after hearing that an ex teammate had died in a car crash. This weekend the team that they will meet next week had to play after one of their teammates was killed on his motorcycle on his way home from practise Friday night. What a tough thing for these boys to have to do. They played Saturday beating the team from Surrey.

After the game I met the family at aunties for a turkey dinner. Now I believe most of you know that my favourite grape is the concorde grape. Well after dinner I was given a pair of scissors and a bag and got to go out in the back yard and cut concorde grapes right off the vine to take home. Oh my god were they ever good. I love you Jim LOL. I probably ate as many as I was putting in the bag. They dark ones were ready but the green ones need a little longer. mmmmmm mmmm mmmmmmmm I had only had the green ones once before when I went into the store and thats all they had. I tried a couple first then bought a huge basket of them. They are just as good.

Today not much is going on. Going for brunch with a friend of ours then to help her move furniture. Tomorrow we are going to Adam and Mary's for a half veggie half turkey dinner. I'm going to skip the veggie half. The baby is due real soon and they were at the Dr's friday and things are in motion. The baby's heart beat is slowing down and its dropping and getting in position. We are now sleeping with the phone in our room. I've warned everyone at work that I may not make it in or may have to leave suddenly. Patty and I are both very excited. Adam is a little nervous and Mary just wants it out LOL. Well I hope I have everyone caught up now.
