Smile August chat

Gee, can't believe it is August already!

I am going on vacation in a couple of weeks and counting down the days

So far I am having a nice restful low-key weekend

I am talking to a mortgage broker this week so I am keeping my fingers crossed we can get financing for a house

ellis- keep your eyes peeled for me in your area I promise we will be good neighbours and not just drop in on you unannounced!

I am here, just at work. Enjoying a lull. Cleaning my desk and doing some puttering around tasks that need to be done. Enjoyed a minor league baseball game yesterday with a Beatles tribute band after, complete with costumes and wigs. The Bisons beat the Ottawa Lynx 10 - 2.

We had a fun day.

Now the rest of the week is dedicated to errands and packing for my California trip on Friday.

Where is this vacation to Mauvais?

So very tired today...I didn't sleep well last night because of the humidity...

Now it is raining here but it doesn't seem to be cooling of any.

I bought a great magazine on the weekend by Style at Home magazine-it features excellent articles on decluttering, maintenance cleaning, seasonal maintenance, making arrangements and packing to move etc. Very handy!

Mauvais, I'm glad you're planning on staying downtown! I will keep my eyes open.
I subscribe to Style at Home... I really like it. They have a lot of articles for people with limited space. (NOT that I have limited space, but I DO have small rooms! )

What the ****, Squeak! The Linx LOST!?!?

Den, have fun in Guelph! Too bad it's not closer...

I found a couple of places for sale on the mls listings -one was "near" Dow's lake and two are in Sandy Hill....I still haven't heard back from Mr. Mortgage Broker If he doesn't call me by the end of the day I will call him.

I'm just stopping by, practically on my way out of town again. I changed my avatar to a pic of me from a bike ride I took with my dad and stepmom. I'm supposed to say that I rode down that waterfall and skinned my knee in the process. It is just not true, unfortunately, what really happened is that I got my foot caught on the frame because I'm not used to riding a guy's bike and ended up falling. Oh, well...

My trip was fun. I really enjoyed spending time with my younger cousins and also being one of the adults for the first time on one of these family vacations. The last one we did was when I was 14. The lake we stayed at was natural and it was really nice. I think I swam every day, even when it was raining!

Still waiting to hear from Mr. Mortgage Broker I have looked at a couple of houses on-line that seem to have a lot of what we are looking for but I don't want to contact the real estate agent until I know what we can spend.

YEESH!! You must be going NUTS Mauvais!!! Waiting for info like that drives me crazy. ESPECIALLY when you are finding houses that you are interested in!!

YUP! I wish that Guelph was closer too. If DS ends up going there, though, maybe I could take an extended visit....hmm....we could crash one of his parties and REALLY embarass him!!

I hope you hear something soon Mauvais! And find a perfect house!

Hannah - glad you had fun!

Den - I hope you enjoy the visit! I am with you for crashing the party!

Ellis - How are you? How is dad?

Cheez! I hope you find out before Saturday, Mauvais! I want you to ENJOY your breakfast!

Thanks, Squeak... Dad is doing pretty well. He and Mom (did I already mention this?) moved into the city this week, so I can just walk over to see them now. It's great. (okay, it's a little too close to Mom for my liking, but you can't have everything. )
The health care he's getting is WONDERFUL! We couldn't ask for any better.
Their new apartment is really nice, and everything is working out well.
Have a wonderful holiday, sweetie!! (seems to me you're ALWAYS on holiday! )

Hannah, your new pic is GREAT!! So glad you had a good trip!

Den, how ya doin', hon?

Where's Heather?
