It's been ages since I posted anything and honestly, I still have nothing of interest to say. I'm counting down the days until I can decorate for Christmas...around here, decorating before Dec. 15 means you are a total whackjob. I can put up the outdoor lights but they cant be turned on...big no no.
This is the first year that Abby will be really interested in whats going on. Last year she only cared for bead garland, this year she is going to flip out when she sees all of the presents and decorations. I cant wait!
Eric still believes in Santa, a little. I know that this will be the last year for believing and after that, I only have to convince him to go along with the farce for Abby's sake. It's sad when they stop believing. He emailed Santa the other day and was giddy when he got his reply. Too cute.
Emma is still being a teenager and that has me very, very concerned. She is still grounded, indefinetly. I wonder if I can keep her in for 5 more years? There is no way that I was like that. =o)

Falling in love, all over again.

It can happen! These past few weeks have been awesome in my house. Ok, forget about the Alberta talk, that part was not so awesome and I'm trying not to think about it until it actually happens. Hubby and I have been getting along wonderfully. Late night talks, cuddling on the couch, even going for drives, alone! I even had butterflies today...remember when you first fall in love, you always have that butterfly feeling?...I got it today while watching hubby outside playing with Eric. I think he's getting handsomer too <----handsomer is a word if I say it is.
I have got to start the potty thing with Abby and I am not looking forward to it. She isnt showing any signs of readiness but she was 2 in June so its time for me to get her ready. Should be fun...not.
I'm working on a cheesy family webpage. Just a place to post pics as I dont give everyone my blog addy, and for family members to keep up with my kids. I added a link but it isnt showing for some reason. Anyway, its and it is nowhere near completed. I'm just playing around. I have several rolls of film in to be developed and am hoping there is at least one family shot for the homepage.

Long distance marriage. Part 2

The talk of heading out west to work is back on again. Hubby wants to go to work on the oil rigs in Alberta because apparently, thats where the money is. He has been to two related job fairs in the past week and met some people/made some contacts and really wants to do this. It's killing me! Sure, it would be nice to pay off some debt and not live check to check. A family holiday every now and then would be pretty good too....but having a husband/father at home every night makes me happier than any amount of money ever could. I could deal with him being gone a week or two every now and then but for months?! Dont wanna do it!
I work most nights and he works all days so we really havent had much of a chance to sit down and discuss the pros and cons together....but I have a feeling that there will be many more pros than cons, at least in his mind, and this is one of those things that I really shouldnt keep him from doing because he'll regret it, and probably resent me, if he doesnt at least try. <----nothing like a good 'ol run on sentence to get my point across. =o)

Do you think I'm hot?

Denise called me last night and asked if I wanted to go to her work Halloween party....with only 30 min. to get ready and get to her house. I was wearing scrubs at the time so I figured I'd just go like that....Nah! Couldnt do that. I raided my closet and Emma's and came up with this delightful ensemble. These pics do not do the mullet justice.
