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.
