  • On my phone. Lost hydro at 5pm.
    Dinner on bbq and by candlelight.
    Played Mall Madness with Daughter, Surfer Son and Farmer by candlelight while drinking wine and eating chocolate.
    The rain is coming in our windows. Soaking towels.


    Worried about my parents in VA on their sailboat.

    • Hope all stays well for your parents.

      Wine, chocolate and board games with family by candlelight sounds great, but not so much for the rain coming in the windows. I hope you have enough towels for the night!!

      We're completely out of the storm's reach over here, thankfully.

      • Your parents didn't stay on their boat, did they? Hope all is well.

        We haven't had anything worse than a bit of a bluster here. Ottawa is well-positioned to miss storms.

                • Tuesday

                  I didn't want to get out of bed. It was COLD.

                  I went to my Home Instruction Student's house for the 1st official lesson. 2.5 hours.
                  I took my tea thermos with a teabag and cream and asked for some boiling water
                  They had hydro so I charged my laptop, phone and Galaxy Tab

                  The afternoon was spent wrapped in a down throw curled up on the couch with my Butterflies and some red wine.
                  And chocolate.

                  My Sister and Niece brought over some thawing frozen pizzas (yuck) we cooked them on the BBQ. I had ground turkey patties on the BBQ and more wine (I drank the whole bottle) and more chocolate.

                  After supper my Sister went home (she had heat) and we went to my In Laws (they had a generator) I had a shower and we visited for a bit. When we came home we had hydro

                  • Halloween

                    Daughter dressed up for school.

                    I had a headache and didn't get out of bed till 10am
                    I only got up then 'cause I felt guilty...

                    I tried to do a few house things, but I wanted to take it easy on my back.
                    Stupid back

                    I got groceries and there was a guy dressed in a really weird (and too small) angel costume in the store

                    Supper was homemade chicken soup

                    We've had 5 Trick or Treaters

                    I bought chocolate I don't really like so I wouldn't be tempted to eat it.
                    But I had a bite sized Mars bar already

                    I still have my headache

                    • Glad to hear you got your power back, that was a pretty long outage.

                      My headache is gone tonight, hopefully yours goes next.

                      The only candy we have left is stuff I don't want either. That's good. I mildly berated hubby when I found 2 mini twix wrappers...given the cookie thing in them...he said "oh, I didn't think about that". Men. He's stashed the peanut M&Ms. All his.

                          • Thursday

                            Made myself get up at 9 so I'd get to my Home Instruction Student on time
                            10-12. Then I dropped my Beetle off at my mechanic's to get new tires.
                            My back hurt, so I didn't accomplish much in the afternoon.

                            Supper:


                            After supper I went to play practice.

                            • Friday

                              I had a phone call for a supply job in London. I got the call at 7:30 for a 8:15 start.
                              I have an hour drive to the school. I had to turn the job down.

                              I got up at 8:00
                              I had a 10:15 Chiropractor apt. in London.
                              She "fixed" me and then my back seized as I was putting my pants on
                              I told the receptionist, she sent me back in the room
                              where I had a mini melt down (tears of frustration)
                              She "fixed" me again
                              who knows for how long...

                              I'd just gotten to Chapters when my phone rang. A supply job across town in 45 minutes. I accepted.
                              Easy class. Grade 12. DVD.

                              Then I did a little shopping. Nothing exciting.
                              Supper was more chicken soup.
                              After supper I found some clothes I'd been looking for since the move! and helped my Farmer with some internet stuff.
                              I don't know if he'll ever "get" it...

                              Tomorrow Daughter and I are leaving for a couple of university tours. Waterloo on Saturday and Guelph on Sunday. We will be staying overnight in Guelph. Going out for dinner with my BIL and University Son.
