We never went anywhere...NEVER.

But on the other hand I dont really want to go anywhere with Heiner.

I know I am being whiny. It's not rational. I am sure I'll get over it, but right now it is bothering me.
It's totally rational if it's what you want Mel.

Oh and Janine, I don't really blame him. I like the Android stuff and given the choice I would get a Nexus 7 over an iPad. That is on my wishlist, because I prefer to read on the iPad over my kindle in the house/at night but the kids are constantly running the battery down or nagging me to use it.
I was going to get him a Nexus...but then Andy said he could get the ipad 2 for half the price of the Nexus and bragged it was better.

It'll be ok, he just needs to get used to it.

I put some toca games on it now and Fynn's doing some puzzles.

Then Heiner sugested we get a sturdy cover for the ipad and that we get a nexus or something android based and we share it...Not really mate.

All my jobs are done!

Dinner is ready when ever people arrive. Soup is cooking for tomorrow. Even found some barley when I cleaned out the grains cupboard.

Just finished all the dusting. Dark leather sofas + dust = a pain.

We could go another weekend, Jen, but with Ru working weekends it makes things a bit more challenging to schedule. I dunno. We are planning on having people here in Quebec for a BBQ to celebrate our anniversary in August. We'll probably just end up doing that and calling it a day.

I hope you can work it out Mel and Ru.

We also got your card when we arrived home from ABQ it is a lovely family picture.

I am watching Christiane Amanpour's Back to the Beginning. It is really good. It traces many of the old Biblical stories...fascinating from her perspective. She has a Christian mother, Muslim father, and she married a Jew. She is traveling with her son so he can see the connections between them all.

Re: Basically it's Friday.

Today is like Christmas, but with a rabid squirrel. I got multiple packages in the mail for ME, found a coupon that gets me $30 off of the blender that I just ordered, found Lydia's leappad in time to load it with the new games and charge it for the car trip. And then a rabid squirrel fell out of a tree and started acting all zombie like as the girls watched. There goes that Brady Bunch day I was feeling So I had to have the "the squirrel wasn't having a good life and wouldn't have lived long and dad shooting it saved it from being killed by an animal or hurting one of you with whatever is wrong with it" conversation,. You know, the one I am sure you all have too.

Re: Basically it's Friday.

Janine if I was going to buy a cover for the iPad I think I would get a smart cover.
