Good afternoon everyone!

It was a big and long week. As mentioned about a week ago, I started my new job this week. Waking up at about 6:20 is much harder than 7 am. The work is much different than my previous position. It's more production based than data entry and submissions based. I don't quite like it as much, but it is money and it will do until I find a secure and full time position elsewhere - or until my contract ends in September.

It was mostly a beautiful week in Ottawa. Temperatures often felt like summer. Leaves and flowers are nearing full bloom. Can't ask for much better scenery right now than Ottawa.

Moving back to my job, I can't post as much as I want to anymore. I'll do my best to post later in the day, but I cannot guarantee anything. Our computer access is very minimal and there is little to no downtime to do anything during breaks or free time. It's disappointing, but at least I'm making money.

Well, I hope everyone has a great weekend. Enjoy the Spring weather wherever you are!
I know what it is like to have to work because you need work not because you like what you are doing. Hang in there!

the weather here was great for a week too, now it is down to 4c (39f) and going down to 2c (35f) tonight. Someone even mentioned we may get some snow in the next day or so! We turned on the heat this morning.

Yuck is it nasty outside!!!! I went out to start throwing all the old decking, railing and such into the pack of the pickup truck that the contractors left in a pile (per my instructions so that I don't get charged for them taking it to the dump) and the humidity must be 100%, threating to rain and all along, those dag gone little black gnats were flying all around my face trying to get into my eyes, they were driving me nuts...It needs to rain so that it cools off and that humidity gets out of here.

I guess I'll do some laundry and work on cleaning up the garage until the boss, I mean the Mrs gets home from work at 3:30...

See ya all later....

That's a good, concise description of us, all right!

Mr. once mentioned Billy De Wolfe to someone and got a blank stare, until he said, "You know ... 'Bu-sy, bu-sy, bu-sy!'" THEN they knew who he was talking about! (Or as we sometimes say here, "dawn over Marblehead"!)

Have a great day!!!
Happy Anniversary, and many more to you! I hope you can go out to dinner.

Baseball practice was canceled, and I guess we are suppose to have some doozies of thunderstorms come through this afternoon.
I hadn't heard about that. I'd better check the forecast for our area.

The day she got home from the hospital she felt terrible from the lack of sleep and nausea but the next day she felt so awesome she was trying to do chores around the house, laundry, changing the sheets on her bed and more in her wheelchair when she was suppose to stay in bed with her leg elevated! She has one of those external fixators on her leg, a big bulky thing she has to deal with for 4-6 weeks. There is NO REASON for her to do chores or cook! The whole time I was growing up my dad always shared that responsibility and NEVER expected my mom to do all that. My dad seems to love waiting on her too! She was doing all this while my dad and I were out running errands for her so we were not aware that she was misbehaving, she's a rebel! Ha ha. We got a call from her and she was bleeding and swelling at the surgery site. My dad rushed home, called the doctor and she was told to get to bed! They told her to stay there but my mom just cannot be still! She is good now. She told me she doesn't like ordering my dad around. I convinced her that he likes waiting on her. He has always been that kind of husband anyway, he LOVES doing things for her. I know what I witnessed with my mom and dad growing up, nothing but love! That is why they have been married for nearly 50 years! I also told her to call Wayne and I anytime and we will be right over if she needed us.
You've got the greatest parents ... it's so nice to hear about them!

This pastor and his wife that we got to meet this morning are great! They have 3 more meetings today and then he will be preaching at both services tomorrow. Then tomorrow night we have another meeting and then a vote as to whether or not to extend a call to him.
No white smoke if we choose him though, but I will let you know.
