Pre-Comp

Well am I ever exhausted! I had a super long day today. This morning I sat with my hubby for about an hour and watched The Good Doctor. Afterwards, I got ready to go. Around 10:30 my younger daughter and I had to go to Fort Saskatchewan to the Dow Centre. Every year her dance studio rents the Dow for the day. They call it Pre-Comp (as in pre-competition!) They run through all of the solos, duos, trios, large groups and regular groups. She has a friend of hers, who judges competitions come for the day and write down comments, corrections, etc exactly like what happens at a real competition. Some dances that don’t go very well and/or need work have to go again. It gives the kids an opportunity to perform all of their dances on a real stage, with a “real” adjudicator and a “real” (the parents) audience. It helps them with spacing the dance on a real stage and, hopefully, helps a bit with the jitters. We were there from 11:30 until 8:00. My daughter is in 9 dances this year, ballet, jazz, lyrical, modern, hip hop, hip hop line, production, a variety duo and a lyrical solo. I think that she did a great job! She did her front walkover!! She’s getting good at her expressions. There are some things that she needs to work on, but from my perspective, she’s doing pretty good. They all are. I enjoy watching! I don’t know why I’m so tired, but I am. It’s a full day and my stupid face pain was on and off throughout the day. That alone is tiring. I guess it’s just a long, full day, that’s all. Whatever the cause, I need to go to bed. I’m going to be spending the most of my day tomorrow packing and getting ready to leave for Jamaica Thursday morning, bright and early!!! I can’t believe we leave in a day…crazy and exciting!! Well, I need a good sleep so I can get everything done tomorrow. Night All! 💤😴

A Pretty Busy Day

This morning my hubby and I watched The Property Brothers. It makes me wish we had the money to renovate our house. Well, actually, my Dad came over and he and my hubby started cleaning our kitchen cabinets. They were super nasty!! Last week my mom did the first layer of cleaning. Then today they actually were scraping layers of gross crud off of them with a putty knife. I guess that they’re the original cabinets from the 80’s, so that’s a whole lot of years worth of build up. I had the thought that we should paint our cabinets white and get new hardware for them. I thought it would brighten up our kitchen and maybe it wouldn’t look quite so dated. Well, you tell my dad something like that and it’s bound to happen! The word procrastination isn’t even in his vocabulary!! So, now that the kitchen is clean and organized, he decided it would be a good idea to start prepping the cabinets to be painted. It’s not a quick job, and we leave in a couple days, but there’s no time like the present!! I had to pick my daughter up from school early today, so that we could go to the dance store to buy some things that she needs for pre-comp tomorrow. We didn’t have any time over the weekend, it closed at 7:00 tonight and she danced until 7:45. The only time that worked was this afternoon. Once I picked her up, we came back home and she got ready for dance. Then we left and on the way we stopped at the Beaumont Community Centre, so that I could vote. We drove to the dance store in Sherwood Park and we bought a pair of black jazz shoes, a pair of canvas ballet slippers and three pairs of tights (black, tan and pink), all for the cheap cheap price of $170.00!!! Dance sure is an expensive activity! From there we went to London Drugs and then Subway to get her supper to eat on her break. I dropped her off at dance and then I went to Winners. After getting a couple things there, I went to my mom and dad’s house. I had supper with them and a short visit. Then I went back to the studio to pick up my daughter. We drove to Beaumont, stopped at Rexall to pick up my daughter’s prescription, and went home. By the time we got home it was almost my son’s bedtime. I did a couple quick things and then I got him ready and into bed. Then I did my own bedtime routine and got into bed to write this. I’m trying to decide if I’m going to just go to bed and shower in the morning or if I’m going to shower now and then go to bed. I’m undecided. Hmmm. Well, regardless of what I decide, I think I’m going to go for now. Night All! 💤😴

So Much Running Around!

This morning I slept until 10:00 again. When we first woke up, my son and I played a game on the iPad. Then we went downstairs and I had my tea. He played Minecraft for a while. I just sat talking with my girls for a while. Then we had some food. We made a grocery list that will last the kids while we’re in Jamaica. Then we dropped my son off at a friend’s house to play and we (my oldest and I) dropped my hubby off at a friend’s to watch the Super Bowl. We went to Sobeys and bought quite a few groceries. Then we went to Shoppers and got a few things. We drove home and picked up my other daughter and went to Dollarama to buy some pens, highlighters, paper and a binder for her CALM class. We went to Rexall and got her some things that she needs for pre-comp on Tuesday. Afterwards we finally went back home. At home I got some laundry together, as there are a few things I need washed in order to pack them. Once I got the laundry in, it was already time to run out and pick up my son. When we got back home, I put on a pair of jeans and my daughter helped me draw a line on each leg, in order to cut them into capris. Then I cut them. I went downstairs and started supper. I did the dishes while supper was cooking and then we ate in the living room while watching the HGTV show, Fixer Upper. Then I did more laundry and started fraying the ends of my jeans. I didn’t have enough time to finish, because I had to get my son into bed. Once he was sleeping, I got myself ready and wrote this. Now I’m going to check my laundry again and then I’ll be going to bed.

Night All! 💤😴

A Nice Visit

The font still seems really big to me. It’s late and I’m tired! This is going to be a short, point form type of post. I just really want to get to bed. Also, I really don’t have a lot to say today.

This morning I slept in until 10:20. It was nice!

I had breakfast with my hubby

I watched HGTV for a bit, it was one of those house flipping shows

My oldest, my son and I played Wizard

I went upstairs to figure out what clothes I want to bring to Jamaica and what needs washing

Around 3:45, I stopped and we went to my parent’s house

There’s a lot of snow on the ground and it was cold today

At my mom and dad’s, we played a few games before supper

The power went out just before supper was about to be ready

We lit a bunch of candles and my dad found the flashlights

My son was excited to have a candlelit dinner

Everything was cooked enough to eat

We started taking things to the table

We were almost ready to sit down and the power came back on

We decided to eat by candlelight anyway

Supper was really good

We had chocolate/caramel tarts for dessert

Then we played another game, called Phase 10

We drove home, it was minus 27 degrees Celsius

I played once quick round of Go Fish with my son

It was time for bed

Once my son was sleeping, I got ready for bed

I am freezing ‼️

I got ready for bed.

I got into bed and wrote this

I’m going to sleep now

Night All! 💤😴

Start Packing!

I think that there must have been an update on the WordPress App, because I didn’t change anything and the font size on today’s post is way bigger! I didn’t even write a post last night, because I fell asleep early. I woke up at 1:30am when my hubby was coming to bed. I realized then that I must have fallen asleep! Oops! I rarely miss a post. However, I was just so tired that I decided to just go back to sleep.

Today I watched a couple HGTV show with my hubby. I was super tired while watching and I kept almost nodding off. Once the last show was finished, I started to do the dishes, my dad came over while I doing the dishes. He fiddled quite a bit with the with the closest door, because it wasn’t shutting correctly. Then we put the spring/fall and not worn often boots into the closet to make room on the mat. Afterwards, we went through some old bins of clothes. I kept just a few things for my daughter to try. Then my dad went home. My hubby and I had lunch and watched Property Brothers-Buying and Selling. Ahhhhh! I’m doing the nodding off thingy – too frustrating!! Once it was just us, my hubby and I watched Property Brothers – Buying and Selling, while eating lunch. Then he fell asleep. We did some packing/prep for our trip next week. I then went to pick up the kids from school. I dropped them off at home and went to Sobeys and then Rexall. Back at home, I talked with the kids for a bit. Then I made supper, while talking to my oldest and my hubby. After supper, we sat in the living room and watched some more tv. We were all tired. So, after a bit, it was time to get my son ready for bed. I took him upstairs and did just that. I got ready too and I’m exhausted, so I’m going to sleep. Night All! 💤😴

A Sad Sad Day

Hmmm…weird. I just opened this WordPress App to write tonight’s post, and I found that yesterday’s post is gone! I don’t know where or why, it’s just gone. I wrote about my nails, buying my plaid shirt, among other things. It’s just gone! Huh.

It’s late and I’m beat! I had a long, full day. I’m too tired to give a play by play. I went to a very difficult funeral today. It was for a 6 year old little boy. My old friend from school lost her son. About a week and a half ago, while they were in the States, he died in the night. The cause is undetermined. He did have strep and was just put on antibiotics that day. But you just don’t expect your sick little boy to die because of strep throat. You just don’t expect them to die, period!! The funeral was held in a huge venue and it was packed. Filled with plaid. His favourite shirt was plaid, so they invited everyone to wear plaid. It was a beautiful service, a tribute to a special little boy. It was just so so sad. There’s not much else to say. It was really just hard. The road ahead is not going to be easy for them. And I wish them all the best. I pray they dig deep and find strength to get through this. Although it is not something that you ever truly get over, I’m sure. It’ll probably always be there. How sad…

We’ll, that’s all I’m going to say for tonight. I’m drained! Night All! 💤😴

Bla Day.

This morning I was really tired. So I went back to bed for a nap. I got up around 11:00. What a sleepy morning. I sat on the couch and had my tea while watching HGTV. I enjoy that channel. It makes me wish that I had money to do our house though. But, here’s to dreaming! This afternoon went by pretty quickly, even though I feel like I didn’t really do that much. Nothing much worth writing about. I watched more tv. I made a grocery list. I ate. I read. I talked on the phone. Not much else happened. I went to the Sobeys to get a few groceries. I went to the dr’s with my daughter. The dr gave me a prescription for medication for travellers diarrhea. I will be bringing the meds with me to Jamaica next week. After the dr’s appointment I made supper. We had chicken salad. It hit the spot. I read a bit more and then it was time to put my son to bed. I am still feeling tired. So I got myself ready, then scrolled through Facebook for a bit. Then I wrote this! Now I’m going to bed. Night All! 💤😴

Great Movie!

Tonight’s post is going to be another short one, because my eye is in pain for some weird reason. It started around 5:30. If just began hurting. At first I thought I had something in it, but it was a different kind of pain. It just hurts. So it’s difficult to look at my phone right now. I don’t want to do it for too long.

This morning I slept until about 10:00. Then I got up and had some tea and some breakfast. I helped my son with his video game for a bit, then I had to actually get moving and ready to go. My younger daughter and I were going to the movie The Maze Runner – The Death Cure. We went to see the 12:00 showing, but the roads weren’t great and it was pretty slow going. By the time we got there, we wouldn’t have had enough time to line up and get popcorn and make it on time. So we decided to go to the 12:45 one. It was good. Very entertaining and non-stop action. It had sad parts to it and funny parts and, of course, action. I quite enjoyed it. After the movie we quickly went to London Drugs and then drove back home. Once at home, I sat on the couch with my book. My son was playing his Zelda game and my oldest daughter and my hubby were helping him. My hubby spent the day trying to figure out money things. How we can live on less. What we can cut back on, etc. I half watched him play, while reading my book. Then my eye started to hurt. I made Spanish rice for supper. Afterwards my son had his bath before bed. Then I got him ready for bed. I read a bit and then got myself ready. So now I’m going to close my sore eye and try to sleep.

Dance Meeting

I think I’m going to be doing another short post tonight. I’m starting late and I’m tired again. So…

This morning I slept in and it was nice.

When I woke up, I felt super nauseous – I don’t know why though.

I took some tummy medication, got a cup of tea and sat on the couch.

I talked to my Momma on the phone.

I semi-watched my son and hubby play a game, while at the same time I was on my phone.

I played trouble and cup pong with my son.

I had lunch.

I had a nice long shower.

My tummy started to feel better.

I had to go to the city for a dance meeting from 5:00-5:30. My daughter had to be there by 4:00 to dance. I waited in the car and read my book until the meeting. After the meeting she danced some more, until 6:45. I went to Winners while she danced. I bought face cream (night and day), eye cream, a Canadian flag luggage tag, a travel backpack, and sunglasses to wear when I have contacts in. I made it back in time to pick her up.

When we got into Beaumont we stopped at the Sobeys for a couple things.

My hubby started chicken soup and I added veggies and spices to it and we ate a later than normal supper.

I sat in the living room and we watched my son and hubby take turns playing a video game. It actually has a surprisingly interesting story line.

It was getting late, so I took my son upstairs to bed.

I put away the Winners stuff and talked to my daughter and then I got myself ready for bed.

And now I’m going to bed. My face wasn’t bad today. That’s a nice change. I think I’m going to go to sleep now. I feel silly with the play by play, but I have nothing much else to say today or most days actually. So, I just recount my day. Pretty boring most days.

Night All! 💤😴

A Pretty Tired And Lazy Day

This is going to be a short post tonight. I’m feeling simply exhausted today. I can’t stop yawning and my eyes want to close. So, this is going to be in short form.

My son was sick today, worse than yesterday, he stayed home from school

My hubby and I watched tv for a while this morning

He left to drive our daughter to her exam and to drop somethings off at the airport

My oldest, my son and I played a couple wiiU games

My daughter came home from her exam

She and I watched The Scorch Trials together

My hubby made spaghetti for supper

My oldest and I watched a couple shows together

It was my son’s bedtime

I got him ready and into bed

I got ready for bed too

I’m too tired to write much. So I’m going to go to bed now.

I’m super tired

Night All! 💤😴
