Hello all, I have not had much time to post in a bit. Things have been happening around here, I thought I was having a string of bad luck :( Last week I was heading to the gas station to fill up before the prices went even higher, thought I was being smart by going before it got dark out. My mistake, I blew a tire on the highway, it was a bad blowout, something like you would see a transport do. If i had been any closer to the big cement wall that is a noise barrier for the nearby town, it could of been much worse. Unfortunately the tire wrecked the front headlight and broke the support bar under the hood of our van. Thank goodness for cell phones, cause hubby came quickly to change the tire and I made him drive the van home while I followed in the truck. By than it was dark out. I thank all the wonderful people who stopped to see if I was okay, they were on the other side of the highway and actually turned around and traveled back to where I was. I have been so leery of driving now....but yesterday I was able to get in and get 4 brand new tires installed so I am good to go! Easter weekend was great, it was my son Kaedyn's 6 th birthday on Sunday so he got double the surprise! The kids had a blast Easter egg hunting and the weather was beautiful. We had my inlaws over for dinner and all was going good until the power went out around 3 PM, thank goodness my turkey was done cooking but I hadn't started the potaoes yet, so we cooked them on the bbq, it took awhile but it worked. We had figured that the whole area was out of power so we never called. the hydro company . It wasn't until after dessert that I said decided I had better call. We ate by candle light, it was quite nice :) Anyhow, turns out it was just us out of power, the wire that attaches to our pole had dropped off so there was no supply to the house. They came within 20 mins to hook it back up! Just in time because with a house full of people and being on a well and pump that runs the water tank....well, you catch my drift,lol We made some really good memories though :)
I am jumping up and down in excitement! I was able to get tickets to the Nickleback Concert in Toronto for next Sunday! I have been wanting to see them for a long time and there are 3 other really good bands playing that night too. Hubby was suppose to go but he has to work the next day so he said he would watch the kids and told me to take our oldest daughter. at first I don't think she wanted to go with her old mom, lol, but now she is getting excited too, it's her first concert! So this means a haircut and color is on tap for this week and maybe a bit of clothe shopping is in order to get ready :D
Well, I have to run, have laundry to hang out, it's the last day of sunshine for a bit, the weekend is supposed to be rainy.
Hoping everyone has a fabulous Friday!!
