Heebee Jeebees

How do you explain that word to a four year old?


Just wait until you see mine! Fabulous Paper Bag Album using Dream Street Products made at Cherish the Thought in Port Moody.

Why oh why do women need to go through this?
I am so pissed off. I am not sure why because I was expecting it to return sooner or later. I got my . after 27 months I forgot how crappy it makes you feel! I am really shocked {into reality} and so don't want to breastfeed anymore. What a big baby. I just want to bury myself in a hole in the ground and cover it with leaves because it would probably feel better than this.
Manong's teeth are really crowded and crooked. Pluse had a root canal and he is only EIGHT! No more juice and now I will be the flossing nazi. He was very brave and squeezed his dad's hand hard. He has a silver crown and thinks there's treasure in his teeth now.
Manang got a new bed today. Let's home she stays in it ALL NIGHT long!
I decorated it with Christmas lights because her brother took the lamp.
We put all the clothes in the drawers below and I realized she has way too many.
Then again she does change her clothes at least 3 times a day. She is obsessed with how things smell. I am going to be busy preparing lotsa foods tomorrow.
Ading is asleep finally and has taken to screaming like a banshee. I didn't know a 1.5 year old could be so demanding. She sounds possessed when she howls and screams "mommy" at me and chases me around.


Look what I made with Jessie at Cherish the Thought! recently
Alcohol inks are where it's at! Can you see the granite like background?
I think we like Queensborough! Imagine, next time my boss calls me Debbie from Queensborough I will tell him he's jealous. I am going 'in to town' now to borrow my mom's roasting pan assuming she is home from the police station otherwise we'll need a bail bondsman.


More soon...poor neglected blog...

Queensborough



In September our family finally moved out of our little apartment. Now we are living in a house in Queensborough which I didn't see until we were moving in. I was hesitant to go across the bridge to a community I was less familiar with. It is separated from the rest of New Westminster by a bridge and nestled in between Richmond, Delta, Burnaby and the rest of New Westminster. It is on the Fraser River and until recently there was not a lot of shopping over there. In the last few years a Walmart was built and with it came a bunch of fast food and clothing stores as well as a Best Buy and There is a community centre with lovely weeping willows and plenty of playground space. The schools are centrally located as well but we don't have a grocery store there. I suspect we will be crossing the Queensborough Bridge frequently. My commute time to work has been cut by 10 minutes and I am sure Patrick is closer to his work destinations as well. We like to look out our back window and see the trains. We are right near the Derwent Way rail swing bridge going to Annacis Island. We have ditches with frogs in our front yard. I like the grassy lanes that divide many of the homes backyards. We are getting used to being a bit isolated from our family and all the places we used to frequent. We have met some nice people and are enjoying being in such a large space where the children can play outside!
