Happy Birthday and other ramblings

Happy Birthday Dad/Bryan!!! (Sept30th)

Today we stayed in bed until 8:30, it was nice. Then George made a yummy egg scramble with sausages, tomatoes, and lots of cheese. It was really good! Then we didn't do anything for a few hours, then we went to the farmers market in vancouver. We got some fruit, goat cheese, and lunch. Again, very yummy. Then we came home and I read for a while (aka fell asleep for three hours) and George played his computer game. Now he's talking to his dad!

It's cold here...cold. The trees are turning colors, it's raining, and cold....burr. But now I'm more ready then before, I reorganized my closed for winter clothes. I'm still not excited about long sleeves for the next lets see.....eight months? Ugh.

George had his first week of school. He likes it but doesn't know anybody in his classes, so he'll be making some new friends this year! He's getting smarter every year, which means I have to pretend to understand him even more than normal, but that's okay, I have a degree in pretending to understand people! hehehe

Okay, if you read this UPDATE YOUR BLOG TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ARGGGHHH!

Please don't leave!!!

Summer that is.....being the last day of summer, it was nice and sunny, and windy, and cold....ugh. I don't want it to be winter yet! My horsie is already fuzzy, what does that tell you?! I feel like with all the wedding and planning and stuff I missed summer somewhere in there and I am really really not ready for it to be cold. I don't wanna wear sweaters and coats all day! The worst so far is the light change. We are losing light so fast now, it's dark here by 8pm and it makes me so tired. And it's not very light in the morning when I get up, that really makes me want to stay in can't be time to get up yet, it's still dark outside.....Seasonal Affective Disorder anyone?
I finally got my new job title at work, only took six months.....yay me...I think
George starts school on Monday, and he's been busy with Army for the last two weeks so he's kinda wiped out too.
We still have a big pile of boxes and stuff (wedding presents) and we don't have anywhere to put the new things. So they are in a pile behind our sofa. The cats love it, so much fun to climb on.
I spent most of the afternoon canning pears with my mom. We're going to do more salsa tomorrow. Maybe I'll take a picture of the pantry....It's full of jars, greenbeans, peaches, pears, salsa, tomatoes......
And no, we still don't have pictures back yet, and yes we will post them when we do get them back!

We will miss you

Simon 1997 - 2007
Simon was a wonderful little bird. I got him the summer before my freshman year which would have been 1997. He was about eight weeks old when we brought him home. I spent lots of time with him getting him to sit on my finger and being comfortable outside his house. This is perhaps how and why he learned his favorite words, 'pretty birdie!'. He became very sweet and social, and learn to make lots and lots of noises his first year. He loved to play with his bell and chew on paper among other things...(no really teacher, my bird ate my homework!)
He learned many different whistles, mimicked the phone ringing, laughed and said many things like pretty birdie, simon, hi!, hello, goodmorning, nightnight, what'cha doin?, come here!, peekaboo and a few I'm sure I've forgotten. He loved to 'sword fight' where he would tap his beak on your nail and puff up and chatter at you, but never ever bit you. It was very cute. He liked to sit on fingers, shoulders, heads, and even glasses if you let him.
He was the first bird in the family to pass of natural causes and therefore live to 10yrs old!
He taught Jordie some of his noises and chatter too.
He was a sweetheart and we will really miss him.
Don't want a dog? Don't want a cat? If you have some time and patience get a parakeet. They are inexpensive, easy to keep, and fun to have.
