Well all of the horrible things people have said about it seem to be true. Nah, it's not that bad... but it's close! I'm not giving up hope on it yet (since I've only been here 4 days...) because I believe once things start turning green it can only get better. It's not the most beautiful place I've ever visited that's for sure - but I am starting to find a few things I like - "The Pond" pub outside my door (the sarcasm is dripping....), the gorgeous legislative building and grounds and Polo Park Mall, plus the Dollarama down the street that has completed my makeshift kitchen. Today I took Neil to his office and found the way back all on my own so that's awesome. Here's to 4 months!

I'm telling

Now I don't want to offend anyone here but there's something I have to say.

I absolutely hate blogs/websites that automatically play music when you go to them.

A lot of people like that application and that's fine, I still like you and I still visit your site, I just ALWAYS turn your music off.

I just thought you should know. :)

Peg City, as Neil calls it.

A post is long overdue so I thought I'd give a quick update and the excuses as to why I have been so absent.
We are leaving a week from tomorrow (eek!) for Winnipeg for 4 months and boy has there be a lot to do to get ready! We have a lady coming to live in our house for the summer so a lot of my days have been filled with cleaning out drawers, closets, and cupboards to make room for her things. (A side note - it's a strange feeling cleaning your house for someone else to come live in.... like does she really need to see how unkempt my kitchen cupboards are?!) Not to mention finishing odd jobs (hanging blinds, putting up bi-fold doors, FINALLY getting the second coat of paint on those touch-ups in the basement) that have been neglected.
The same day we leave I have a do at the exhibition where I will be selling my peek-a-boob's. To get ready for it I have made about 51 of them in the last 3ish weeks. That's like... I don't even know how many a day... but A LOT! (It's getting nice outside, you're going to want a cover, place an order today!) How's that for a shameless plug?
Because we will be gone all summer we are trying our darndest to fit in all kinds of family and friends and make sure we get some QT with those we love.
Anyway, this may not sound like a lot to you but with every day life happening (I didn't even mention Neil's new job!) on top of this it's been a little crazy around here.

Do you love me THIS much?

I am visiting in Vancouver at the moment and I have a friend out here who is a make-up artist. She is often off doing fabulous things with her fabulous life (Mariah Carey's back-up dancer's make-up, the make-up for celebrities at the Junos, or the make-up for some hot runway show in town) anyway, this week she was doing the make-up for Eva Avila who was opening for Beyonce. While doing Eva's make-up she was asked if she was going to stay for the show (backstage) and replied that no she had a friend in town and was going to visit her instead. She picked ME over being backstage at Beyonce! Now fabulous life or not, I still think backstage at a Beyonce concert is pretty cool - not her, she thought sitting in my mom's kitchen chatting with me was cool.

THAT'S cool.
