Hello again my friends. Well, we've been in Strathmore for a little over a week now and things are starting to return to a state of normalcy. We checked out the downtown area and took the kids to see the new Indiana Jones movie in the local theatre. It shows one movie, once a day at 8 (be there or be square). Despite the lack of cup holders, the seats were VERY plush! Even though I was expecting a gong show because of Nolan's short attention span, he was very well behaved!
One afternoon we walked around the lake downtown which is part of the Kinsmen park (i'm sure the lake had a name but I missed it!). The kids played in the playground and Ken and I watched on from a shaded bench. It was a nice afternoon.
The kids have been playing with some other kids they met in the neighborhood, it didn't take long for that to happen! Having them playing outside has left me some time to straighten out the house a little each day. I could be done by now but I am taking it easy and spreading out the 'love', if you know what I'm saying.
Not to mention, in this place, the laundry facilities are in the basement. Now, I can fully appreciate how nice it was to have my laundry facilities upstairs, next to the bedrooms!! Oh well, I can use the exercise and I should be thankful for having laundry facilities in the first place... and brand new ones at that!
My sister has be started on her eating plan. I can't say it's been easy going. I've been acting out like a smoker trying to quit cold turkey. But I'm going to try my best anyway. It's nice that my sister is here to support me on this. Lord knows, I need support!
Well, I should go, I've got a bit of energy and a lot of things I want to get done today... so I had better get to it!
Take care everyone!
