LOL! Yep sounds just like our old neighbours, only they would turn the music up when we turned out the lights.

I hope you get some sleep tonight Jess.

our dog broke into the rabbit hutch last night and killed 5 rabbits After Dh got ahold of her I don't think she will be doing that again. Thankfully all the kids rabbits are all ok.

Oh No! Poor bunnies.


I'm pretty much ready for VBS tomorrow, I'm starting to get excited. I really do love this week with the kids, we always have so much fun. Although this year I'm not looking forward to the heat that's going to go along with it. Environment Canada has already issued a heat warning for the whole week for our city. I should be sweating away the pounds at that rate, last year I lost 20lbs during the week.

Awww, poor bunnies! Hope your dog behaves next time! That sucks!

Yeah, I was thinking yesterday of turning off the AC since the 'feels like' was down to 29...and then I looked at this upcoming week...some days are 41!!!! Going to my parents to swim a few times for sure!

I hope Cam sleeps to let me sleep! Poor little guy was up late 3 nights in a row (like 8-9 lol instead of 6-7), and it doesn't tire him out somehow. I'm headed up soon to read my book!

Visiting a friend tomorrow and swimming at my parents

Good luck tomorrow Caroline!!! Yay for burning lbs, but be safe about it!

Feels like 34 at 9:30am. Awesome.

Cam was playing with his shape sorter, and I put something through the right hole...and he can fit his hand through and grab it...but not pull it out LOL. He was sooooo mad lol. But I gotta watch him with it that he doesn't hurt his wrist.

Swimming this afternoon thank goodness! I can't wait!

Hot, hot, hot! It's 38 degrees out there right now without humidity!

It's been quite a day here so far! Got up and took the kid to the playground this morning before it got so hot, and stopped on the way out the driveway to get the mail, apparently I parked to close to the box and scraped up the whole side of the van when I pulled out. Went to the park and then the grocery store for a few things, Rylan and Sophia were both holy terrors in there! So we came straight home instead of going to the dollar store. Ry has been incredibly whiney all day so I made him take a nap- he came out four times before finally giving it up and going to sleep. So finally everyone fell asleep (except Alyssa) and I decided to scrub, filled the pail and of course, Hannah woke up *sigh*

Going with mom tonight to get an air conditioner for the main floor, it's too hot!

No diet, just dance for 3 full hours with 150 kid. Do 4-6 songs at a time with a 5 min break in between each session. Do that in 40* temperatures and you loose weight.

How was your first day Caroline?

Hope your day improved Chantelle!

We went swimming this morning. My mom gave me her camera so I could get the pictures she took off the camera. I am wading through pictures from MY wedding 3 years ago!!!! They never take things off the camera!

So I was making my chipster chips with my epicure stuff, and my microwave gave out. Done. If it had kept going, it probably would have caught fire, it was so super hot. I hope there's a sale soon! My friend suggested checking out the Target that opens tomorrow....its like 5 min from my house

First day was awesome! I love doing VBS it's just such a high energy fun time. There's a bit of a/c in the room I'm in which is awesome but I was still hot and went through my whole water bottle before the morning was over.

My mom is soooo good to me, she bought me a a/c unit for our main level, its the same as the one we've been using upstairs and love so we should be much more comfortable for the next few days. She said she felt sorry for us in this heat and knew that with the move we didn't have the extra cash right now to get one for ourselves. Then she bought us a new dehumidifier to replace the one that died on the weekend to keep our basement reasonably dry. I'm so spoiled.

I'm glad VBS is going so well! And hooray for a new a/c!

I hope you can find a good price on a microwave! And I'm jealous about the new Target! Ours isn't opening until fall!

My day did improve a bit, and I decided to work at home tomorrow since there's nothing to go into the office for (and we haven't installed a/c there yet, so it would be ridiculously hot!). I still need to take the kids to the sitter tomorrow and the house is going to seem so oddly quiet without them here!

Too hot! Way too hot. My poor air conditioners are running full time and just making it tolerable in here. I can't imagine what it would be like without them.

Enjoy your quiet day. I'd give anything for one of those right now.

Did you get to your new Target today?

So far today, our clothes line snapped, fixed it, it snapped again, repeat 3 times, now I have to rewash the clothes because they are covered in grass. Our agent called, told us that our house is a disaster, that it looks like we never cleaned it, and if we had taken even one of his suggestions that our house would have sold by now and when I told him he was wrong that we did everything he asked, that we mopped the floors, cleaned the windows and vacuumed all the rugs before we left so if it was a mess what were his clients doing the the place, he told me I was lying and told me I needed a new agent and then hung up on me. The couple that wanted to rent the place have suddenly told us that "it's complicated" and want to meet with us in person. My head hurts. Is it bedtime yet?

Holy cow Caroline. I hope tomorrow is a better day for you. Did you sign a contract with him? I realize it is a relative but we signed with our agent for 90 days. After that, we could drop her if we wanted. Perhaps you can do the same? Its clearly straining family relations. And ITA he is not doing his job. And causing you much stress.

The feels like for tonight? 31 FREAKIN DEGREES! Going for a swim at my parents tomorrow for sure!

I didn't make it to Target, but I think I will tomorrow. I have to deliver some Epicure so have to run out anyways.

I am so excited I made it onto Pregnant Chicken...I just adore her sense of humour. And she's Canadian to top it off.

We're done with him. Even DH said he was done with him and it's his uncle! DH actually said he was going to call his mother (our agent is her brother) and complain. Not that it will do us any good. We're going to meet with these rental people and see just how "complicated" it is and then hire another agent if need be.

On the up side, DH and his dad almost have the kids big wooden play set put together!

Yay for your playset!!!!

I would recommend the agent we used. She was amazing. And I bet she'd come to you as I don't believe you are too far from me. She was truly amazing. She has listings in Meaford and Bamberg even though she is based in Kitchener. I cannot sing her praises enough. She even came like 2 weeks after we moved in with a wall hanging that we have in our kitchen.
