Oopsey is ready to leave Canada, and a couple of other things....

Well Oopsey is ready to leave, so we did a draw and Janeen's name was drawn. So she is heading to the States.

I have enjoyed having her visit, and I think even dd secretly enjoyed seeing her!!!! Thanks to everyone who entered the draw. She should arrive at Janeen's by the end of next week

To see how and why Oopsey came to visit me, visit Caroline's blog.

Daily Savings Club, are you still keeping up with it? You should have $9 in your pot today.

Finally, I seem to be in a blogging slump at the moment, don't have anything interesting to say or share with you. Just need a kick up the you know what to get motivated. So feel free to give me that kick!!!

Hello Gill

Kick, kick, kick. tee hee
Been having the same problem around here. It comes and goes. Reading other blogs helps give me ideas.

Sometimes what you think is nothing interesting to share would actually be quite fascinating to someone else! I know what you mean with that though, I haven't even been doing this very long and there have been a few days where I have just looked at the screen and thought 'what have I got that would be even vaguely interesting to someone else?'
So keep talking, please, we'll all get a cuppa and keep each other going!
Take care

I agree with Cathy, tell us how you plan to decorate your new home. What type of garden will you have? Share about your thrifty grocery shopping. Come on friend, you can do it.

What a cute idea. Oopsey is going to see the world all because of blogging. When my husband was the adviser of a flying team, they won a Fred Flintstone stuffed toy. Fred flew with all the kids as they practiced and followed them to competitions across the US. When we flew to Canada one time we brought Fred along for his first international trip. We took his picture in lots of places to send home to his team parents. When we got to Canadian the border to clear customs they wanted to know why two grown adults had a child's toy with them. We tried to explain, but they didn't get it. Needless to say, they made us take everything out of our airplane and spread it on the ground for them to inspect. We wanted to take Fred's picture in the midst of all this commotion, but thought it might be too risky. Now Fred is back home with the "kids," but much more worldly from the experience. - Margy
