A new friend

found his way into our lives today. It was a cold and rainy day here in my neck of the woods and while visitng at my parents, who have an inground pool, one of my foster son's looked out at the pool, wishing he could go swimming and instead says," there's someting in the pool, it looks like a rat!!!" We all jumped up and sure enough a rat like creature was trying to swim out of the pool, thankfully at the walk in stairs in the shallow end, we don't know who would let an innocnet little hamster loose into the wild, but stranger things happen in life. Anyway my dad made the big rescue and we are now the proud owners of "Jeffey" the hamster. He seems to have come through his ordeal quite well, and I hope he hangs around for abit to enjoy his second chance!!

Where are the weeks going?

I can't believe it's been 5.5 weeks since I had my surgery, 3 weeks since school got out and 5 weeks until Dan and I celebrate our 5th anniversary. We does time go? I would love to know that one, it passes wasy faster than 24 hour days should IMO. I haven't taken many pics yet this summer, still trying to master my camera, I can't imagine if I had a SLR how confused I would be :)

Here are some pics of my girls from the other day, TFL!!! Speaking oftime, look how fast 10.5 and 3.5 years have gone :(

It's funny

how things can get blown out of proportion and feelings can be hurt, when you don't really talk to someone you just read an online post. It's all like a game of telephone, it starts out as something innocent and by the time it reaches the end it's something completely different. I posted about some feelings I have towards recent events at one of my favorite haunts, I would like to say that I meant nothing personal to anyone invovled, I was merely speaking how I felt, yes I was surprised by some of the recent choices made, as I know many others were, it DOES NOT mean I am not happy for these ladies and I'm sorry if it came across that I was. I have been thinking of switching kit clubs, that is totally my perogative and again nothing personal to the kit club or it's affliliates, I am looking for a place to hang my hat and feel welcome and recent events involoving some people have got me thinking, I'd be happier else where.
I have received alot of pm's about all of this and I thank you for them, I thought I should set the record straight on my behalf and hope those that know me IRL will help those that don't realize I would never hurt a soul.

What a great day!!!!

We took the kids(minus Marissa who is visiting at Nanna's) to Happy Rolf's Animal and bird sanctuary in St. Catharines, ON today, can you say fun!!!!! They had a great time, Nick had never been there, and Zack loved it from last year( They are my foster sons) Victoria always has a blast there and eagerly waits to feed the ducks and geese, she has little interest in the horses and lambs and goats and rabbits, it's all about feeding the ducks!!!!
