Steph might actually be in the same city as we speak. Probably not yet - since it is 7:30 am but I can pretend.
I'd go harrass her at the airport but I need to do a LOT of cleaning before she shows up here. I've been saving my housework for a rainy day - which is not happening so I will have to bite the bullet and clean while the sun is shining today. UNFAIR.
Can't wait to see her Minou is going to shake her little body in half wagging her tail.

The Dictator in the canoe
We rented a canoe today. It was wonderful. I hope we do it again soon. It was a really nice warm day and everything was perfect. YAY!!!! The girls didn't come this time - they don't really like boats and were exhausted from suntanning al day today and yesterday. They have an extremely difficult life. But I hope to bring them next time...
I had a great lovely day.
Almost makes me forget I am unemployed and broke! heh heh - ahhh - sigh.......

I'm procrastinating.....

Relationship meme:

1. Where did you meet?
At work. He was the cute french quiet drywaller and I was one of 5 girls out of 50+ guys - my odds were good...

2. How long did you date?
5 years and going....

3. How old is he?
Just a baby - 30.

4. Who eats more?
He does.

5. Who said “I love you” first?
He did. I'm a bit of a cynic when it comes to that and wait as long as possible so that I really mean it.

6. Who is taller?
he is. which is a good thing...

7. Who sings better?
well. I think we are both tone deaf. He does a pretty horrible bon jovi - wanted dead or alive but it always makes me laugh.

8. Who is smarter?
Of course me. DUH.

9. Whose temper is worse?
Me. I think. Or maybe I just vocalize mine more. He keeps it inside - oh the quiet rage...

10. Who does the laundry?
Sadly I do. Not because I love it or am really good at it. I think I just get sick of wearing old clothes first.

11. Who sleeps on the right side of the bed?
Me. But I need to switch I have a bad shoulder. Unfortunately he'd rather let me sleep upside down then switch with me. Brat.

12. Who pays the bills?
These days - him. I NEED A JOB!

13. Who cooks dinner?
Usually him but these days I have been trying. Last night we had burnt hamburgers on moldy buns with soggy fries! (Don't worry Steph I'll cook youone of my fine meals when you are here too! - you don't have to eat it)

14. Who drives when you are together?
Usually me. In the beginning it was me because he didn't have his car in Vancouver and told me he couldn't drive stick. LIAR - I totally caught him in that lie. Nowadays his car is almost dead so I have been doing most of the driving.

15. Who is more stubborn?
We both are.

16. Who kissed whom first?
He kissed me..... hee hee

17. Who is the first to admit to being wrong?
I'm never wrong. I hope that answers your question.

18. Whose parents do you see the most?
Maybe mine - but just barely. His parents both live in Quebec and we see them once a year it seems. Mine are much closer - Alberta and Saskatchewan but it still seems to end up being once a year.

19. Who proposed?
Still waiting.... I can tell you it better be him..... And it better be soon....

20. What’s his best physical attribute?
Ohhh so many to choose from.... his eyes, the 'gun show', his abs, although it does annoy me that my pants are baggy on him.

21. Who has more friends?
Me. I don't think he has any friends. Unless they came along as boyfriends/husbands of my friends. Oh do internet gamers count as friends? Please no.

22. What are you most proud of him for?
Being the bestest guy ever. He makes me proud everyday - oh except when he farts. Not to proud about that.

23. Who has more siblings?
We both have one. He has a brother I have a sister.

24. Who wears the pants in the family?
Well I wear the pants - but like Steph said he wears a pretty mean pair of simpson pjs.

That's all...

Auntie Angie did it! She ran the Vancouver marathon today. She was so fast we couldn't get good pictures of her - ran past to fast. Birdie and I wore matching numbers to cheer her on. We were so tired - we had to get up at 6:00am on a SUNDAY to watch her. We slept in her lap all the way home. Whenever Mommy saw her on the race she screamed like an idiot. It was a little embarrassing.
Lots of people tok pictures of us and asked us if we were running the marathon and how our time was. Mommy - instead of saying "yes they are and they are going to qualify for the Boston marathon" would say "no they are just cheering, but their time wouldn't be any good because they keep stopping to pee." Maybe Birdie was but ot me - I could have ran it just as fast as Auntie Angie.
Angie's biggest fans.
Angie waving to the girls.

I've been gardening.
Weeds and or Mixed Greens
I've never had a 'garden' before. Never planted anything from seeds.
I planted all these before I was 'supposed' to, aka it snowed once or twice after I planted them.
Carrots - maybe
I thought I might have killed them before I even started.
But I didn't!!! Look they are starting to grow!!!
'green' thumb
hee hee hee!!!

Minou's Birthday cake.
Minou and her cake. She wasn't hungry so this is where she put it for safe keeping.
Minou hide her cake in the couch cushions.
The couch cushions. The Dictator and I didn't notice and were seated quite comfortably on it all evening for her while watching Hell's Kitchen.
One of my bestest buddies is running her first marathon this weekend and the girls and I are going to cheer her on. I figured they needed some appropriate t-shirts to wear.
Making their race day t-shirts.
HEE HEE.. Can't wait!
