I will use the title from a Terry Pratchett novel I just finished reading. I have had some interesting things happen in the last couple of weeks.
Emily decided to have a Hannah Montana themed birthday party, and have it in our small house. The Friday before I baked the requested chocolate cake and prepared the loot bags. It turned out to be a great time, considering that by Friday we had only heard from a few parents confirming that their girls would be attending. By Saturday morning, we had an extra girl and one who on Friday couldn’t come, show up at the door. That meant we had 7 of 8 invited girls show up and scream, laugh and run around. Pizza was given along with the cake & ice cream … they left happily everafter.

The week following the birthday party, I had moved my office downstairs. I had been trying to set up a small home / office network, so we, C & I, could work more efficiently together. No way could I get Windows7 to recognize C’s Mac, homegroup sounds great as long as all other computers are running Windows7. The other advantage to moving my ‘office’ downstairs was that we could actually talk instead of emailing each other in the same house. The communication method of our age, talk face-to-face, no too old-school. What to do ?
I then remembered someone who said their husband worked for Apple. After send an email, receiving one back, looking at the one iMac he had for sale, phoning to see if he was home, getting the cash, driving to their house, talking for a couple of hours, doing the deal, putting it in my car, driving home, finishing the jobs I had to do in Windows, setting it up, removing the PC … here I am doing my first post from my new iMac.

Know for the most major change, I can bring my doggie here from NB. So a week ago this past Saturday, Emily & I drive to Moncton. We spend a few hours, helping my Mother do some computer stuff on her iMac, going to the Moncton Farmers Market and getting my dog ready to drive to Halifax. So after 10 hours, Feydrahn is now living with us in Halifax.

We are still going through adjustment period, especially C’s 2 cats. G-cat has been hiding out in the basement, while B-cat has come upstairs to go out and has ventured around the house a little, but with trepidation. The sardines yesterday helped a little, we wait … we wait.

So another week, March-break here so Emily is off school. Life continues …
TAG … back to you!!!
