bits of news

Jamin lost his first tooth today! The adult tooth was already coming in behind the loose one so he shouldn't have a gap for long. The tooth is now under the pillow waiting for the "tooth fairy" to come and take it away and leave him some money. Hopefully the "tooth fairy" won't forget. :)

Something else exciting for us. No, not a baby. Last weekend Jeff and I booked our very first trip to Las Vegas! Super excited for that. We will be leaving at the end of March and I can't wait to go. This is for our 10 year anniversary that we celebrated this past August. Can't wait to see some shows and stay in a fancy hotel and take a tour bus to the Grand Canyon!

That's it for tonight.

I wanna go to school

Jamin came home from school today with a new Canteen lunch menu. I'm thinking that I want to go to school so I can have lunch there. Some of the things on the menu are:

Chicken Parmesan with Butter Noodles $3
Baked Ham w/ cheesy mashed potatoes $3
Broccoli and cheddar soup $1 for small, $1.25 for large
Taco Salad $3
Steak & Pear Salad $3
Roast Pork, Chicken Salad, Egg Salad sandwiches $2.50
Clubhouse wrap, Taco wrap $2.50
Spinach salad with cheese & mushrooms $3
Mini Pizza $3
Perogies w/ sour cream $2.50

There are other things like fruit, cookies, muffins, pudding, veggies & dip, other soups and sandwiches. Anybody remember what was in our canteens when we were in school? I remember hotdog days and chips and bars, and nachos and cheese in high school. Oh, and one time in grade 2 we could order weiners and beans. I did not like them. I still do not like them. I think this is a big improvement. Not that I'm complaining about chips and chocolate and nachos and cheese. Don't get me wrong, I love all those things. But it's nice to see some more options and some healthier options.

Happy New Year and a couple of resolutions!

Sorry I've been absent from blogging for so long. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. It's been busy around here lately. I've missed blogging about so much. My son's 6th birthday in November and Christmas and all the gatherings and Christmas programs and then New Year's. Wow! Where has the time gone, it's 2011 already!

And of course it's resolution time. This year I only have 1. Well maybe 2 or 3. Last year my mom decided she was going to walk 1000 miles in 2010, and she did it! So I've decided that this year I am going to do the same. I've set up a ticker to track my progress. Hopefully that will keep me on track.

The second one would be to blog more. It's been over 2 months since my last post.

That's it. Nothing fancy, nothing unattainable. I'm hoping that along with 1000 miles I'll maybe drop a few pounds. I managed to lose some weight last year but I don't feel I'm finished so here's hoping!

Happy New Year everyone!
