Thanks for asking!



That is wonderful! Glad it was a successful evening for them last night.

Congrats on your winning bid! Dessert sounds delicious!!





I'm very sorry for your loss, friend.
Praying for you & your family.

Winter fair sounds amazing!! I bet you had a lovely time, Victoria.
Have a super evening!!

I have not even had chance to watch hallmark Christmas movies. I know Moonlight and Mistltoe came on all weekend and I had that set to record..it's one of our favorites. I hope everyone had a great weekend. I will catch up here hopefully soon. it's been such a hard past 2 weeks I hope things will look up soon!
Thinking of you guys, friend.

Enjoy the pretty snow!!

How the heck is everyone? I, myself am fantastic

Little update since July-- good tidings have been brought to my life this whole year! Amazing what happiness can do for you
- bought a 2013 Mitsubishi lancer, sports edition.. Woohoo traded in the g5 towards it, yes I feel a little sassy when I drive it LOL
- found a brand new, basement suite out in the country everything included!... For me & Ryan to live in
- Ryan moved here at the end of September (yay! No more long distance)
- now have a set schedule at work, which is mon-fri!! Still a fair bit of hours, but am thankful I now have a job that allows me to keep my bills paid & food in my belleh
- am very happy!
Things have been going really well for me (finally!) in all aspects of my life! Relationship great, family awesome, friends superb.. Life is just good! Now to get back on track with somewhere I have missed dearly in my crazy busy life! MMC!!!!

Went to port yesterday to pick up a little something near and dear to my heart... mom handed down her beautiful 7ft Christmas tree to me!!!
She's had it since I can remember and it's always been her pride & joy come christmas time! My grandma may end up a bit ticked and I know my sister was upset.. They've both been vying for it for as long as I can remember & I won't lie, I'm not completely innocent either when it comes to "who gets THE TREE?"... Somehow I get the honours (I am the oldest daughter.. That has to count for something right?), might just have to arm my home with security cameras & the occasional ninja now though.. Keep their pesky little mits off it! Hahaha
My mom usually went a little Clark griswald on it (yes a billion sparkling lights LOL).. So hopefully I can try to keep up with her tree decorating standards hahaha! Poor boyfriend won't be able to see the telly anymore if I follow mas footsteps muahaha, wait maybe that's a good thing!!!! Oh who am I kidding, I wanna watch the tube too!!! :d
I was planning on putting it up today, but I may wait till next weekend seeing as the little amount of decorations I do have for the tree... Are packed away in the storage closet:/ ( and I gotta pick up more!!)

How's everyone else been?

Always something.....I'll talk to ya all later tonight~
I am so sorry for your loss, Xmastidings. You and your family are in my thoughts.

Good evening,


I have spent hours working on my MP3 transfers to get ready for the season. I have enjoyed all the work of doing it. I was getting ready to sync everything up, I hit the wrong button. I LOST EVERYTHING!!! All that work I have done the last two days is gone. I have to start over, I am beyond frustrated.

I will be back later.
