As you can see (hopefully!) I've redecorated my blog. It was time for a change since the old header had a photo of Nolan when he wasn't even a year old. It has been so long since I tinkered with the design aspect of Typepad that I was completely lost and it took me far longer to achieve this than I had though it should. I am also sure they have changed many things behind the scenes... so I was learning things for a second time, love that. Everything is working on my end, the header isn't cut off, i can read all the words in the side bar... can you find anything I missed? Please let me know, I appreciate it. I plan on changing the design more often now that I have a lot of time on my hands, summer holidays and all... it should be fun.
Speaking of summer holidays, Paige was invited to her new school this week for a grade one orientation! It's a full day that involves lunch and the whole kit and caboodle! She's really excited about it, and so am I. She's met more people in this town than I have just by trolling the neighborhood and playing in the park across the street. It doesn't matter where we are in town, she sees someone she's met at the park. My little social butterfly.
Nolan is, well, Nolan. We've finally managed to get him to go to the toilet alone without dragging someone along for support (by 'someone' I mean ME). Which was great this week because he discovered my 1litre water bottle and was literally going ever couple of minutes. Suffice it to say he and the water bottle have parted ways permanently.
Ken is finally finished his shut down. For those of you who don't know what i mean by 'shut down', it's when they Shut the whole plant down and perform repairs on the place that they couldn't do while everything is up-and-running. Everybody works and they work every day until it's done This also means, in wife speak, "You won't see your husband for several weeks, and when you do he'll be very tired and perhaps a little grumpy.". We all love him so much we can handle a little grumpy. We are just waiting for him to get off his normal shift now so we can hang out and do some things together. Camping on the list of things we want to do, the tent has been purchased and we are just waiting for some free time. I'm really interested to see how the kids handle camping now that they are older. Shoot, I'm interested to see how I handle camping now that I'm getting older.
As for me, not much new. I'm spending my days keeping the kids busy. They play outside most of the time but everytime they come in the house they seem to create an hours worth of 'damage control' for me. I don't need to tell you that they are in and out of the house several times an hour. I'll have to admit that this last month has really drained me. Like I said in the last paragraph, we really need our Kenny home.
Well I should hit the sack,
