Until next time

I don’t disappear on purpose; it’s just I have no exciting stories to regale my visitors with.

Okay fine, here is some news: Lane is coming back from B.C. because she misses us all too much. I’m so happy because I have really missed my shopping buddy!

My family is moving yet again, right after Christmas, just like last year. We don’t know where because so far we haven’t found a place. And Marcel &Julia are due to have their baby on November 3rd, which is a week away!

“But your name tag says ‘My name is Wade’.”

My New Year’s Eve was spent unpacking my bedroom. Plans sorta fell through, but I guess that’s fine because it gave me a reason to get all my stuff put away. I am such a Procrastinator. Yes, with a capital P! 😛

Just got home from work and plan on moving some more fanlistings. Oooohh, Keesje bought Orange Crush pop without my knowing which is funny cuz I had a craving for it. She is psychic, ya know.

Oh my, the funniest thing I have watched in awhile — The Strangerhood. The mini soap opera videos are made from The Sims 2. Soooo funny! Drrrrrrrrrrnt.

Delightful is just the word for it

I’m back! We’ve moved into the new house but there is still a lot of unpacking to do. On Wednesday, Kendra picked me up from work and she helped me assemble my new computer desk. Can you believe it took us over five hours to put the thing together? The good thing is it looks so nice. 😀

I have been lazy with finishing up the unpacking in my room because I’ve been so tired. My hands have small blisters from assembling the desk, my feet are sore from work…I just want to lay around and do nothing! lol Ah well, shall stop complaining. I should actually be getting in the shower and getting ready for work on this delightfully windy, pouring rainy New Year’s Eve!

Moving day is looming near

Today is Finish Packing What We Haven’t Already Day. This means that tomorrow is Moving Day. 😉 I’ll be on MSN most of today but moving starts at 8 a.m. tomorrow morning and then I’ll be internet-less until tomorrow evening sometime. Bye!!!

Happy holidays

We just got back from Christmas dinner at my mom’s house. First, this morning — more like afternoon by the time all of us were showered and ready — we opened gifts to each other and from our dad. We being me, Mark, and Keesje.

Mark and Kees gave me the box set of Harry Potter books. I’m so excited to read them again. 😀 And from my dad I was given “Gilmore Girls: Season 2” and “Friends: Season 6”. Pretty awesome! I’m really happy with those gifts. Both Mark and Keesje got the extended edition of “LOTR: Return of the King” plus other things I can’t remember.

After that we drove over to my mom’s house. She had cheese and crackers, some spicy sausage I didn’t try, cookies, shrimp rings, and chocolates set out as snacks before dinner. I love Lindor chocolates. 😉 We opened stocking stuffers first. Lots of neat little things like lotions, Lipsmackers, chocolate oranges, mints, etc.

When my aunt and uncle and two cousins arrived I handed out the gifts. I can’t remember what everyone got, but I know Krystal received a lot of movies: “A Cinderella Story” (from me), “Van Helsing” (from Kees), “Shrek 2”, “Harry Potter & the Prisoner of Azkaban” (from my dad), and “A Walk to Remember”. My mom gave me Elizabeth Arden Fifth Avenue perfume that comes with body lotion that smells divine, a green luggage piece that I picked out from Bentley’s for my Toronto trips, burnable CDs, blank VHS tapes so I can tape skating, yay! And two Björk CDs: “Post” and “Medulla”. 😀 Pretty sweet, eh?

When we finished with gifts we chatted for awhile until dinner was ready: turkey, sweet potatoes, mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, home-made stuffing, veggies. Sooooo yummy and I’m so full! For dessert my mom served freshly baked apple pie and coffee cake and I think there was more chocolate and cookies. I drank almost the whole bottle of strawberry Zinfandel wine my dad brought. lol

Later, after my aunt, uncle, and cousins had left, we thought we should get going as well. We stopped at the new house and looked around inside. My room is going to be a little smaller and it’s going to be interesting getting all my furniture in there. I need to get a new desk, too. But anyway, that’s all for now. I hope everyone else enjoyed their Christmas, had a good time with friends and family, and ate lots of food!
