01.08.03  It didn't work - It had been a while since we'd chatted. I thought I'd tell you about my new puppy, about going on vacation, about what had been going on in my life. But when you said, she found a lump my heart... (tags: )

03.08.03  It seemed like a good idea at the time - We're going camping tomorrow and it's supposed to rain every day until Thursday. Which is the day we come home. I'm thinkin' this guy is going to be more of a problem in the rain than the kids. Wish us... (tags: )

08.08.03  Camping/rain report - We made it home from camping in one piece. Monday, it rained briefly when we arrived but we got everything set up and organized in record time. Tuesday, Ice and the kids had just returned from swimming when the skies... (tags: )

09.08.03  How to kill time and spend more money than you expected - Ice and I were invited to the wedding of one of his co-workers today. The guy he's been sharing a motel room with for the last six or seven months or, as I like to call him, the guy my... (tags: )

10.08.03  I'll never top this one - Today was another busy day but I'm too damned tired to write about it now. I wanted to mention one thing though. This morning, Ice spent some time playing his new PS2 game (GT3) and he was thrilled to learn... (tags: )

12.08.03  Things should be easier now - Everything was going really well today. I was thinking to myself how nice it's been around here since the neighbours left for vacation. No fights, no crying, no hurt feelings. My three have been playing well together and enjoying each... (tags: )

15.08.03  Well, that was fun - Yesterday, it was hot so I planned dinner with that in mind. I thought I'd make some things that Ice would really enjoy, things we hadn't had in a while, that wouldn't heat up the house too much to prepare.... (tags: )

18.08.03  No foolin' around though - Saturday night, we took the kids to the drive-in for the first time. We didn't say where we were going, just told them to grab some pillows and blankets and get in the van. They made lots of wild guesses... (tags: )

19.08.03  Where there's smoke - There was a fire at the mill today. It didn't last too long but the smoke blowing across my yard caused some concern. And the dog let it be known that he does not like the fire siren.... (tags: )

22.08.03  Ice's birthday - Even though it was Ice's birthday, we did our bit to support the Canadian beef industry and had McDonalds for dinner. I even convinced the kids to have burgers, instead of the usual chicken. We went for a walk after... (tags: )

23.08.03  It's a good thing we only have 3 kids - We went back-to-school shopping and spent a heart-stopping amount of money. I mean really, it was scary. And I finished some very time-consuming changes at AFMR. Finally.... (tags: )

24.08.03  Eye candy - Every time I change my desktop wallpaper, it takes me several days to stop being surprised by it. I went from alien night to black with a great picture of Steve in the middle. Yummy. ;)... (tags: )

25.08.03  Owww - On December 16th, in a very limited number of theatres, they will be showing — back to back — the extended versions of The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers, followed by an advance screening of The Return... (tags: )

27.08.03  Where there's smoke, part 2 - Ice's uncle's (and cousin's) barn burnt down today. I don't have all the details so I don't know how it started but I do know they got all the livestock out in time.... (tags: )

29.08.03  Street noise - Some neighbourhood teenagers had a party tonight which got louder and louder and spilled out onto the street... until the cops showed up and the parents came home. Ah, to be that young and dumb again.... (tags: )

30.08.03  Not enough hours in the day... or night - I updated my list of potential candidates for my Canadians site and discovered that I have well over 700 names. I don't know when or how I will ever get them all listed. For now, three more: Richard Birdsall Rogers,... (tags: )
