Just dropping in to say hi!!

We've been computer-less for almost a week now and I am about to die! I've spent way too much time at the library trying to use the Internet there while chasing around a newly walking baby. And at the same time, I've spent way less time on-line...which means I've actually gotten stuff done around here. Cleaning, laundry, organizing, eating etc. All things I didn't do before. Which definitely means I've gained three pounds. Who knew the Internet was a weight loss solution for me?

Anyway, Lauren lent me her computer for the weekend. So I can get online...but I can't post pictures. So, soon enough I'll be back here with pictures. Until then, here is some of what we've been up to lately:

1. Hanging out with Family...Waterton with Ben's family, and general Calgary stuff with mine
2. Cleaning the house
3. Walking! We all walk in this house now! Some of us still look like Frankenstein...but it's still walking!
4. buffalo lake with my moms family. All her cousins and kids and grandkids!
5. Prepping the basement for Wawa (or most of you know her) to come and stay for a month Can you say built in babysitter?!?!
6. Hanging out with Chris and Lauren...Ben's brother and wife who just conveniently live down the street from us!! FUN!
7. Prepping the backyard for sod...which will be finished this weekend!
8. Planting flowers in my new flower pots! My first willing attempt at gardening (and when I say willing, I mean that this time my mom didn't make me and Josh go to the backyard to dig up the garden from last year, or weed, or plant new seeds or anything...I did it all by myself without anyone making me! Maybe next year, I'll try to actually plant a flower bed.)
9. Trying to lose that three pounds I gained without the computer, plus the other 5 I needed to lose in the first 8 total!
10. Enjoying every last day I have of mat leave and trying desperately to think of something I can do at home for work so I don't have to officially go back. Any suggestions???

And that's it, I'll post pics again when I have my own computer back!
