Merry Christmas to all...

Been quite a busy day indeed. Got up this morning and fed my boy, was planning to bring him around with me to deliver gifts and cards but Rod showed up at 12, he got off early. So at least I didn't have to drag Toby out in this horrible weather. My best friend ended up driving behind me and managed to get my attention to pull over, when I did and rolled down the window she passed a gift into me. I felt so bad, I told her not to get me anything, (she is a single divorced mom of 3 kids) I knew she could not afford anything, I barely could. I had her gift in the car after just buying it, lol I am just as bad as her I suppose we agreed not to exchange gifts and then we both ended up getting something for the other one lol.

Got a pizza in the oven for supper, I know there will be a lot of food coming the next few days so I figured have something easy tonight.

My mother just called to say she wasn't going to church, *phew* that meands I get off from going too, I was going to bring Toby to the Christmas eve service, but with him going through the terrible 2's and the weather being crappy I didn't really want to go, this is usually the only time in the year that I actually go to church.

Not much of anything else planned for tonight, we have to go to my aunt lately which is just literally a jump and skip up the road, but I will be driving there cause I don't want to risk Toby getting sick, he just got over pneumonia.

I am so not in the mood for this, this year. And it seems like a lot of other people feel the same way from reading people's blogs and hearing people around town and stuff.

I am going to track Santa for toby later at should be interesting.

Have a Merry Christmas everyone.

Just a rant and a mix of everything

Urgh, I have been so letting this blog go. I just don't bother posting anymore, I read blogs but never bother to write in my own. Bad bad me, anyone want to give me a spanking? Come on you know you want to.

Well we got a new computer for xmas, it is nice to have a new one seeing as the old one sounded horrible when you turned it on, even the monitor was squealing. I like the computer mostly just because it is new, I like that it is all black, what I don't like... the screen is a wide flat screen, it has windows vista (still not sure if I like it or not) and the keyboard is so different from my old one.
The computer is faster, but there is nothing on here to be faster with, This is the thing I hate the most. All my bookmarks are gone. :( So I am slowly trying to get back at least the blogs I read daily. Hard to remember them all. I was smart enough to write down the addys to most of them, but of course I can't find my list and I am too damn lazy right now to sit down here and type them all in. I just like clicking and it's there, no need to think to much yeah I know STFU.
Well Merry Christmas or Whatever it is you celebrate. I will just be here trying to type in peoples addys. Urgh. Maybe this will help with my computer addiction lol. I will get so pissed off with the thing that I will just give up. Nahhhh not likely lol.

Enjoy your holidays people. I will be around somewhere. And if you want me to post more make a comment at least, let me know someone cares. :(

Think I need a tardy slip

I have been really bad with getting the motivation to post lately. It's not like nothing has been happening I just didn't have the energy to type it out. Well Rod has been back to work now for 2 weeks and it has been a long hard 2 weeks, he comes home has supper and is in bed by 9 pm, his back is killing him and he has had to go back on the painkillers which dope him up so bad that all he wants to do is sleep.
The weather is getting colder and we have had a few flakes of snow fall nothing is staying on the ground yet Thank God.
I have been reading a lot of blogs lately and I love them all, I will add them to my blog roll eventually.
Now you see why I haven't posted anything?? This is just all so boring for anyone to read. I have nothing interesting happening. I managed to order 3 Christmas gifts today, those are the first gifts I have ordered or even bought for that matter, we have been broke beyond belief here for the last month or so. I am just hoping to get the Christmas shopping done, it will be a very cheap Christmas this year that is for sure. And I hate that they are playing Christmas music in the stores now, Urgh I think I am just being a scrooge this year, maybe because I am afraid I won't be able to get presents for everyone on my list. Urgh .
I have been thinking of trying to find some work that I can do from home and that are not scams, but everything I have found so far is so scammer city.

My new ride, for now

Here is a pic of my new ride, a few post ago I mentioned about an accident, well this is the car that the insurance company rented for me till we get everything settled, believe me I am in no hurry to get anything settled now lol, Well I am not the one who is dealing with it, it is my dad who is dealing with them, and boy are they being stubborn. So for now I get to call this car my own. Makes me feel bad that I have to give this back when the time comes, going from an almost 10 year old car to BRAND new is nice, very nice.
Well "my" car is silver and the interior is like this (below) but red instead of blue, it even has a bottle cooler in the glove compartment, and the cup holders are cool, I mean they keep your drink cold, how cool is that lol. This car is sooooo sweet. It almost feels like you are driving a van, but still have the small feeling for parking and stuff. Man if I did have the money ( around 18 thousand) I think this may just be the car for me.
Well not much else to say, just felt like sharing my "good" *drool worthy* news.
Only thing else happening around her is Rod getting under my skin and vice versa, he is going on week 4 now of being home from work with nothing much to do, he in not capable of much, we/ he decided to paint the patio today and guess who got roped into helping and then finishing over half of it herself?? Yup me that's who, I hate painting big things like that, now give me a painting or something any day, but rooms or houses and stuff no thanks, and I suck at it. Took me almost 5 hours, ok it is a big patio but my mom could have finished it in half the time it took me, well it was my first time so I don't think I did that bad, worse thing is where the wood was so old and in such need of a paint job, the paint just soaked right in, so that means we need another gallon of paint to do it at least once more. I may post pics when I am done, if I like it. :)
Have a good weekend people.

Meez me baby

I stole dutchbitch's idea today. She had a meez on her site so I decided to go and try to make one myself. It is a fun little thing, couldn't make it look like me though, but I guess it is close enough.
Not much to say today, we are still figthing with the insurance company to come up with an offer, either fix my car or pay me. My dad is picking up a rental for me today, he should have been back by now, so wondering what is taking so long. I may have an update for you guys later on that.
But for now go waste some time and make a meez.

A little about me??

Well this is a pic of me and my son. There aren't many pictures of me and him cause usually I am the one taking the picture. I try to stay behind the camera, I hate the way I look and have for a long time. Anyhow, here is a little info about me...
Live in a small town in Newfoundland Canada, met my ex husband when I was 17, got married at 19 and moved to The Netherlands with him, lived there with him till about 2004. Moved back to NFLD met Rod ( my boyfriend, and Toby's Dad) in 2004 as well. Had Toby in Oct. 2005. And have been living in the same small town I grew up in since May of this year.
I could make it a little more confusing by going into details but I think your heads would explode. LOL Below is another picture we had done. They didn't turn out very well, so I only have proofs, I don't want to spend a ton of money on pics that I don't like.

Oh and PS, more details on the car sitch tomorrow I hope. Damn they like taking their time don't they. Right now is perfect for going out for a cruise with the music blasting. So I am settling for blasting it here at the computer.

More of everything

I can never seem to keep on the same topic in my posts at all. So usually the title matches only the first paragraph, so I think this title is more fitting lol.
Here is a pic of My little guy Toby and my dad. We were down to the unveiling of the Mariners Momerial that was placed in Grand Bank, it was erected for all of the men lost at sea. My grandfather was one of them. It made me really wonder how this must have effected my dad, he lost his father when he was only 6 or 7. He has said a few times in conversations about kids and stuff that he never had an example of how to be a father and he had to do the best he could. Which in my opinion was very good. He is always there for me, and now always there for my son. He is diffidently hooked on my son, he sees him at least once a day, he helped me/us get this house, and fix it up. He is now helping us find another vehicle. I don't know how I could ever thank him for all he has done for me. And I have no idea what I am ever going to do with out him.
Ok well this post could have used an actual title, I actually talked about just one thing this time lol. I am stopping now before I go on and on about something else. :)

God this page is boring

I am wondering what I can do to make this place look better and more appealing. Since I am new at this and don't have much time on the computer, wanting a change may be easier said then done.

I haven't posted in a few days cause Rod has been home with a bad back, last Tuesday I had to call the ambulance for him, after finding him passed out on the bathroom floor, the doc figures the disc slipped and hit the nerves and the pain made him pass out. So he is home for 2 weeks at least.

Then that Friday, someone came out of a side road and hit me (well my car) in the rear tire. The insurance adjuster is coming today to have a look and see what will be done from there, we figure they may just write the car off, considering the car is a 98 and there is a nice bit of damage done, if they won't fix it I hope they give me enough money to get a half decent second hand car to replace it. I mean ok the book value may not be much, but the car is worth a million bucks to me, it gets me where I need to go no problem, and we just spent like 600$ about a month ago on a few repairs to the bloody thing and now we may lose it. Believe me I am not happy. This is the first time in my life I have had to deal with anything like this.
What a week we have had in deed.

Very nice surprise

I got a very nice surprise today, when Rod came home for his dinner he asked if I would like to go to the theatre tonight. Ok guys it's not the theatre you guys are probably thinking. But oh my. This is a local theatre group, check them out
We (me and 2 friends, it's not Rod's thing) got to see Honky Tonk Angels, and a special presentation by Even Tide, a local band. And OH MY GAWD they were so good, I usually don't like newfie music that much but I am in aw of them. They are 4 young people ranging between the ages of 16 - 20 or so, they have been playing for years. And what the girl can do with a fiddle *mouths drops* people probably heard me say oh my god. All I can say is that they were amazing.
I love my boyfriends company LOL they are sponsors of the theatre group and this was another sponsor night so we ended up with tickets. I already got the chance to go to one play which was the widow's walk, amazing. And he just told me that there should be 4 more tickets coming at the end of the month. WHOOOO HOOOO. lol
I will definitely be going to a concert of Even Tide if I ever get the chance. One of the guys is actually on the board of Burin Peninsula Brighter Futures with me, and I had no idea he had such a talent.
I am still reeling from the evening, can ya tell?? LOL
They have a kids only show tomorrow which is 10$ but I think I will be taking Toby, the friend that with me might be taking her son as well, they are only 2 months apart. Should be fun.
Better go and watch Hell's Kitchen LOVE THAT SHOW.
Now go check out the site of the Light house productions. Put your foot in the boot,

My aunt has lost her grand daughter.

I am not sure what she is to me... a cousin? Well anyway she is here visiting her Nanny for the summer, from Florida. So my aunt brought her down today to visit with me and Toby. Well my aunt is gone but she is still here lol. I have a PS2 that she discovered after we came in from playing soccer outside, started to get chilly, her Nanny was leaving and she asked if she was leaving too, she said no, and then she went looking around and seen the PS2 that we have in the boys room. She asked to play it, sure I just had to figure out how to turn it on. The play station was not the problem, it was just how we had it hooked up, it is on a very old TV that is hooked through the cable receiver and then through the VCR, don't ask, I just know it works. I had to call Rod and ask him how to turn it all on so that it worked.
This is the first time I have seen Jesse ( my aunt's grand daughter) since she was like 3, she is around 6 or 7 now, but she just came on in and we hit it off, or actually it may be the PS2. Got to go.

Oh the weather outside is crazy

I am starting to really get bored of being stuck in the house, we get one nice sunny day and the next following 2 or 3 days are rain, or foggy and cloudy and crap. But I guess I am not alone with this, I heard the Netherlands is having crap weather too, and other parts of Canada, even down in the US. Sometimes makes you wonder is this global warming or something?? I think it is, what do all you guys think?
I was hoping to let Toby go in his pool today, we had some fun yesterday outside with some water guns, and the hose, but of course Rod let him have the hose close to the house and the shut off, instead of moving the hose a bit out so we could get to the shut off with out Toby drowning us lol, every time we came close he would spray us. I tell you my 21 month old is SMAAAAART. LOL To smart for his own good sometimes.
I think I wasted my money on the pool I bought for him, good thing is was only 10$ on sale. It's a little kiddie pool not those big ones that are so popular around here lately. I got him the small one so I wouldn't have to get a swim suit on and scare the neighbors lol.
Better head off and see what we can do today.

I am so impatient

For some things I have no patients what so ever. I am talking about this computer again of course. I hate when you just have to wait for plug ins and crap to install. Right now I am installing Java so that I can up load some pictures onto Facebook.
I will upload a pic or two here as well when I figure out how.
I got the camera working again, Rod is outside with Toby walking around somewhere. That is the worst thing Toby loves to be outside, but I hate it, if there is either bit of sun at all I have a pounding headache if I am out in it. And did I mention I burn?? Well I do and very badly, I could wear SPF 100 if I wanted and still burn, and then I turn white as a ghost again, I don't think I have had a tan in my life.
Here are some pics of my son, at his first real restaurant, and with his favorite toy, the cell phone.

I think it's fixed...

I just hope posting about this doesn't jinx me.
Well I think I have fixed the computer this time. Hooked the internet back up this morning and no pop ups yet. I have an old version on Norton anti virus installed and updated so crossing my fingers that the computer will stay working as good as it has. I am trying to reinstall all the things now like my camera and scanner and stuff. I am almost 100% sure I had my camera CD took out this morning, and now of course I can't find it. Can you get alsymers (SP) at 27?? I would forget my head if it wasn't attached sometimes.
Opps better go, I smell that my son has left a little present for me, and he is going around saying "oh god" now. lol

Pop ups need to stop

This is getting so annoying. Every time I leave the computer going and I am not actually doing anything on it, when I come back to it the damn thing is froze up and I have to restart. Something has to be done. I get these annoying pop ups as well, I play a lot of demo games ( yeah I am cheap, or broke, sue me, no wait you can't I broke) and every time I am playing, when the pop up comes up the game pauses and shuts down, urgh. That of course takes time off of my demo. It is so annoying. I think I may have to reinstall this thing again. That is why I haven't put anything back on here yet. I have a ton of pictures on my camera which I normally put on the computer to remove them from the camera as soon as I am near the computer. I have had it a few times that Toby ( my son) has been doing something cute, I go to get a pic and it tells me the memory card is full, so I always try to make sure now that the camera is almost always empty.
Well better go and do my hair and get dressed. Toby has a birthday party to go to today, not that I am in the mood for it mind you. I am so tired again today, I seem to get the lazies on the weekends. Oh well have a good day. Will post some pics whenever I get this computer back to working normally.

Can computers fly??

Ever since the reformatting of this thing, it has not worked right at all. I think I would rather put up with the slowness instead of this crap of msn not working, damn pop ups that I can not seem to get rid of, and the freezing up whenever I am trying to do something with the damn thing. Urgh.
Well we are back from our very short vaca, R was told he didn't need the training they had planned for Thursday, so we came home on Wednesday evening. All that driving for basically nothing. I did get to do a little shopping at least. We did go to a nice restaurant though, first time since T was like 3 months old. That was short lived though, T isn't used to having to just sit and wait so by the time our food came he was pitching a fit, this place was a kid friendly place so he wasn't the only one crying and stuff, but it got to R so much that he asked if we could doggy bag our food to go. Which was a mistake, cause by the time we got back to the motel, I had no interest in fighting with my steak with a plastic fork. What a waste of money and I was enjoying it very much. First meal we had out that wasn't take out/ fast food.
The weather has been crap ever since we got home, rain rain and more rain. Urgh.

Reformats urgh I hate them

Well we had to reformat the computer tonight, and now I am trying to get everything back the way I liked it. Urgh I couldn't even get into this blog first kept saying I didn't exist. Urgh. I hate computers sometimes.
I think I am done with this tonight, haven't even done much with the comp and already we have pop ups, and of course ain't remember the pop up blocker we used. I think I am going to bed. Good night all.

Need sleep, but need to go...

Urgh so Toby got up last night at 12:30 am just as I was falling asleep. He never went back till almost 5:00 am. Needless to say I am tired this morning. Would have been ok, but I need to get my butt in gear, get a shower, get him fed and ready and hit the road. We have to bring R to go and get his work van. Today of all days, but of course we need to leave in the morning cause I also need to pick something up and it has to be done before 12. It takes close to an hour to drive to where we are going. I have no interest in even getting my ass off of this chair let alone get in the shower. Running on very little sleep today.

Day out

Well we have had a day of it today. R had to bring his work van to a garage to get fixed, so we all had to get up and go to pick him up. Him and A (his youngest son, not counting T, which is our son) went in the work van and me, his oldest son L, and my son T went in the car behind him. After dropping the van off we decided to go visit with his parents since we were so close by, so killed an hour or so out there. And of course the boys knew that Thomas Amusments ( a traveling amusment park thing) was in town so we had to take them there and waste some money. Boy that place is expensive. I had to accompany the oldest L on most of the rides, he is way tall enough he just didn't want to go on alone, and R's back is too bad to go on them. So we took turns, L and I would go on a ride then A chose a ride to go on.
On the way back home we stopped at an observation spot thing, just to have a breathe of fresh air, think L was feeling a little queasy. I am glad the amusement thing only comes by once a year.
The boys have been with us now for about 3 days, I think they are going to stay for another 4 or 5 days or so, we will see.
Trying to get my ass up to start the BBQ now. I have no interest in cooking anything right now. URGGHHH.

First post, hopefully not the last...

Well I have decided to join the wide world of bloggers. Hopefully I will continue to post, I figure this place where be a place where I can come just to unwind, vent, moan, and whatever else I feel like doing.
Been wanting to do this for awhile and just felt like there wasn't much point, cause who in the world would read it, but I guess if no one reads this, well that is just to bad, it will be my own little place to just bitch and moan. So I am going to see what I can make of this place and see if I can't get comfy here, can't seem to get comfy anywhere else lately so might as well try to find at least one place I can feel comfy. More about that later.
