Steps Toward Aquiring New Flooring

Well, it has been over a month now without living in my cement palace. However, the good news is I am on my way to getting some new flooring. I went out floor shopping with my Dad on Saturday. We visited End of the Roll and Jordan's Flooring and Carpet. I didn't think I would like anything at Jordons, but I actually dealt with a very knowledgable sale's person about the flooring that I have chosen to put into my Kitchen and hallway. He let me take the samples home, and I had a chance to look at them. I will be arranging to have the estimate completed this week, and then in hopefully 2-3 weeks time, I will have my new flooring! Thank goodness, because the dust is really frustrating!

Phew! Done at Last!

Well, my report cards are completed. Phew, I am free at last! I will hand them into my principal tomorrow. I had a few hiccups along the way, but I survived and I am hoping that I will have very few corrections to do. It has been tough having time for friends these last few weeks. But, tonight that all changed with a visit out to see my friend Jenn and her children Hannah and Ethan. It was great to have a chance to see her, as it has been quite awhile since we last got together for a visit.

I was commissioned to complete her children's baby book way back last summer. I have had all the stuff for quite awhile, but didn't have the pages to show for it. But, it takes a long time just to organize things, so I have spent a fair amount of time just getting all the goodies she had all in order. But, the good news is we went through all the photos. So, it doesn't seem quite as overwhelming when I look at the photos. It was great to have a visit with Jen and get all caught up with what we have both been up to.

I have the scrapbook bug now, as I have been enjoying scrapbooking with Julie the last few nights. I bought Julie a cart to put all her scrapbook stuff in. It was very reasonable at Costco. Now, she is portable and can come over hear anytime to complete her projects. I am thinking it would be fun to host a craft night at my house once the floors are all done. I am thinking maybe a card making party, where I would be the host to help you make cards, or you can just come to my house to work on your own projects. I mentioned it to my cousin and my aunt on my birthday. My Mom and my sister are liking the idea. Anyone else interested? It could be a way to celebrate my new flooring?

Just a thought!

A Very Productive Weekend!

Well, this weekend I set a goal to get done a certain amount of work related stuff, and I am happy to announce that I was able to meet these goals. I am really reflecting on how to effectively use my time to get report cards completed within the day to day activities that pop up. This time next year I will be working on my Masters, and I want to make sure that I have the time for work, school, and home life.

Therefore, putting a plan in place like this definitly seems to be the way to survive the long list of must Do Activities. I have completed my Fine Art Comments tonight, and now will tidy up my office abit, and then I am just going to have a quiet evening at home, as this week I have a union meeting, staff meeting, parent meeting, and Fun Day meeting this week afterschool.

Beautiful Sunshine

Well, we need not complain after this lovely weekend of fantasic sunshine. I know we all tend to complain about how hot it is, but really I would rather have this weather than the liquid sunshine. I had a chamce to get out and enjoy the beautiful sunny weather on Friday night with a Barbeque hosted by my friend Frances. We had a delicious steak dinner, and enjoyed the gorgeous weather outside until about 11:00 at night. Saturday, I visited my friend Debbie who was having a garage sale. Although I am not a fan of garage sales, it was pleasant to be outsied enjoying the weather. Saturday evening Andrei and I went out rollerblading downtown. We parked at Stanley Park, and rollerbladed to English Bay where we had a picnic lunch. Sandwiches, chips, and pop. We had a a very sweet tasking Sundae at Dairy Queen. It was in a chocolate covered waffle bowl. Very Yummy! Sunday, I enjoyed watching the sunny weather from inside my office, as report card season is approaching and I am getting my template ready to begin the reports this week and upcoming weekend. I have to have them handed in to my principal by June 19th.

Well, a little more time and then I am off to another BBQ!
