Kaile comes into the living room and sh owes me her hands, they are totally cover with "floam" ( floam are tiny pieces of Styrofoam that stick to things, I'm not sure what is mixed in with the Styrofoam but it is sticky and sticks to everything.)I say "Kailie you need to get that off of your hands". So she goes and get it all off and all is fine.

This morning

Alarm goes off, I get up, get in the shower,and all is good..... or is it?? what is that there?? i never felt that before!!! I look down and i realized that I've been floamed!!! I guess Kailie used the shower sponge to get ALL the floam off of her hands. not good. Anyway that's how the day started.

the weekend

Well here it is, the weekend! yippee! Its been a long week, but here it is Feb 2 and it's only one week away from the much anticipated arrival of the self proclaimed Philippine correspondent Martha Sue, AKA Babe,mother,wife,moma,mom,Masha,angel,love,lover,pookey,tilly,sister,suzan,Mrs castanza,and princess. Wow, that's a lot, and I know that I'm missing some, lol.

We are really excited about seeing her, she has never been gone from me for this long a time before. The girls are very excited about having her home again. They aren't even concerned if she has bought them anything or not, but I'm sure that will change when she gets home and starts unpacking.

The girls have been doing a lot to keep them self's busy since Sue has left. The weekdays are pretty much the same except that they have swimming on Monday nights and they help me keep up with the house every couple of days. They play their DS's alot and I had to put a time limit on them, they can only have them 1hr a day now.(yea it was way more then that before). On the weekends they have had friends over (every weekend) the first weekend sue was gone i had 4 kids for the weekend. After that its only been one extra kid on the weekends. K is having a friend tomorrow night, she is very excited. a couple of weekends ago we went sliding at Mactaquac park, it was fun but we only went down about half a dozen times, the hill is so big and it was really windy and cold up there. Anyway, were finding things to do.

Have a good weekend everyone. Oh yea, don't bother going to the market for Samosa's that aren't any! :(. T tells me that they are gone from her school now too! so I can't even get them there. :(

Red light District

So Susan do you remember in your January 10Th issue of "Martha Sue in Asia"? You clearly stated, (quote) "I've seen no strip clubs, porn magazines or anything to do with the sex trade". Well let me tell you. I was watching this show last night called "red light district" ( I just happened to stumble across it or course) (It's a show that tells you about the night life in different cities). They were doing Manila (no pun intended) Anyway, have you ever heard of the famous Burgot St? apparently it doesn't sleep and there are plenty of bars and strip clubs. Not to mention the hookers, you can even go to these places and get a nooner! They also mentioned a famous place called "Edsa Entertainment center" ( lets just say there is plenty of Asian entertainment)! I also looked on the Internet to find out more. there were things that would scar you about the sex trade there. Lets just say I'm happy to be Canadian. We really don't know how lucky we are to have what we have. And we really do take our lifestyles for granite. (Holly these trips are eye openers ) Wouldn't it be great if our kids could get to see some of these places ( not the sex districts) but just the cultures, and see how big or small the world is, and how diverse the it is?

Well it is certainly chilly out today. I think its supposed to get warmer out tomorrow though. Its supposed to go up to about -26, I'm looking forward to it, because its been so cold that it will be nice it get a warmer day:)

So, what is new??.. well that cat (Vanilla) and I are no longer speaking to each other. As you know he pissed on the couch. they say that cats don't like change, and the only change we have has is Sue gone. Oh yea, and his kitty litter box is facing down the hall rather then up the hall.( I guess that is what made him do it) Damn fussy cat. He looks at me, I gr awl at him and he know to run. Oh yea Sue, did you say that they heat cats over in the Philippines? Big plump, juicy, yum yum. Let me know and I'll ship him over.

I finally found Kailie a pair of skates.(I think) Someone on line emailed me and said they have a pair I can buy for her. I have to go pick them up Saturday am. I might go to the market tomorrow morning as well, since it's going to be so warm out. (can you tell I've been enjoying the weather?)

Oh and Susan, do you think your readers are ready for the format change of your Blog? You have a lot of followers. From Manila Philippines, to NB Canada, and have now spread into the western Canada market. You don't want to upset your readers. The paperback (hard copy) of your blog is also really staring to take off.lol. I was thinking that I may approach you about renting me some space on your blog, so i can possibly sell some products or services. the fan Base if really growing so quickly. I just heard that your receiving more hits then CNN's Anderson Cooper!.

That's all for now.

Games, Games, Games

Ok, so Tara is home again from school. This is the second day now. You know she is sick when -she says home alone from school! Kailie is not over impressed though, she thinks that she should also be able to stay home from school and sleep on the couch.

Oh, speaking of Kailie, I make her play games with me. She plays that Nintendo DS so much; she is driving me crazy with it. So I make her play game. We sometimes play Yahtzee, (I seem to enjoy it much more then her) but she always beats me... Last night I taught her to play Chess. She caught on really fast, I wasn't really surprised though. She has her mother’s brain.

Hope Sue won't be too jet legged when she comes home, because her mom called the other day and said that she only has one can of "caned milk" left. So, you know what that means? Yep- once Sue gets home we need to take a run "across the lines", but I don't think Sue will really mind, they are cut from the same cloth. he he.

Anyway that’s all for now
