    Babysat cara today had her outside for a half hour in the afternoon and we walked for 40 minutes in the morning ,she is putting 3 words together now and talking more ,so much fun to hear her say "don't touch it nana "about her baby doll in the buggy.

    So happy for my daughter as she has gotten before and after care for Sebastian an older lady who lives across from the school and only takes 4 children (one is her grandchild)good thing she is looking into this now as sept is not far off .

    We have been walking and exploring for over 7 hours today. We should sleep like babies tonight! We are having such a great time we are already planning a return trip.

    Good Afternoon Everyone,
    Going out shopping tonight, trying not to think about it too much but we need to go tonight as we may be digging out tomorrow. As much as I would be happy to push the leftover budget from this week into next, I really feel we need to get Flour & Potatoes if we go to keep limiting Take-Out and Treats.

    On the weekend I made Applesauce Muffins, I have never made these before oh my are they ever good. I ate a couple yesterday when I was working from home and I had to stop myself from eating the whole batch. I think I am going to have to add these as one of my go to recipes and they were actually really easy to make and bonus, it is a one bowl recipe. I love it anytime I can limit dishes.

    Not much else going on, last night I tidied up the kitchen, it wasn't dishes, I did those Sunday but for some reason there was just stuff everywhere. I also cleaned the bathroom but did not do the floor. I will do the floor either Thursday night after work or on the weekend, we will see how I feel. If we get this snow I may need to work from home Thursday as winter driving is really bugging me this year.

    Alright work is almost done for the day, will see if I can get a few more small things off my desk and then off to do our shopping.

    Have a wonderful night everyone.

    @coupongirl we love our stasher bags. I am slowly building up my stash. I have some I use for freezing raw meat. @greentires4me I hope you feel better soon. I find that when I am sick itís the constant feeling of cold that is the worst.
    Pancakes and peameal bacon for dinner tonight. Itís always a hit. Looks like snow on Wednesday. March is just around the corner right.

    hi all... we are bracing for a bit of a storm. i am sure it will not be as bad as they are saying. i suspect north of us will get it worst.

    for those who watch.. sb is having a mega code day.

    i went to the library last night accessed some die cuts that i used for the daycare. i was going to go back tonight but will do tomorrow night instead i think a at home night , withthe snow is needed.

    We are at the airport waktimg to board. Hope the snow is a no go for when we land at Pearson at 7pm. A girl can dream!
    I can't wait to pick up my dog st my sisters so she knows i didn't abandon her. My niece has enjoyed the week taking care of her and really wants to keep her lol. I bought her a cute purse to thank her for dog sitting. She also enjoyed the pictures i have been sending. My sister says she would come home from school asking if i sent new ones. Yesterday we saw a huge alligator so i was able to send that.
    Can't wait to return to regular life. Nice to go away but nice to get back to real life.

    Finally getting snow here. I packed my laptop and brought it home today just in case I decide to work at home, although I really donít mind GO transit on a snowy day because everyone stays home so itís an easy commute. I donít love that DS 1 commutes to school but I know I need to let it go and I know he is a far better driver then most young men because of it.
    I had a free coffee offer from second cup this week. I rarely go there but they are the closest coffee place to my office so I loved my free latte and it was another no spend day.

    we have bus cancelation as well. youngest stayed home. she could have got there... but this honestly was a more responsible choice. she is still doing homework. so all is good as far as i am concerned.


    i am hoping hubby gets some paperwork today for work.. if so we will go on the weekend and get a few things for his home office. make it easier on him on the whole. i need to do a quick trip to value village as well.

    tonight is chicken potatoes asperagus and carrots.

    laundry needs to be done. and i need sleep. oy is swear leading cause of marriage breakup is snoring.. i knowits not.. but .. it must be a contributing factor
