Well our son and partner got engaged on the weekend in Boston. He took her to see the Toronto Blue Jays play the Boston Red Soxs at Fenway Park as she is baseball mad. She said yes and as they already live together it won't be a long engagement, and I think they will be getting married early 2017. Her ring is gorgeous, a real "bobby dazzler." If you haven't heard of that term before click on this link for an explanation. Thankfully our daughter "helped" guide our son in the right direction regarding the right ring, as he likes the "bigger the better look," and our future daughter-in-law has very small hands. The ring he got is perfect though.
Still waiting to see our new grand daughter; as she is still inside of her mother's tummy. Dd doctor took ill and so her C-section was postponed until next week; as long as she doesn't go into labour in between hands. She is now 39 weeks. Pain in the butt for everyone as everything was planned out. However as long as mum and baby are okay that's the main thing. So we should have a baby this next week now.
Due to all that phaffing about didn't get much of anything done this week.......
Little shocked to see my foot this morning:
I curled my toes over for the photo so you weren't exposed to my nasty toe nails!! It's still quite bruised and it's been a week and a half now.
Finally, you know how you win some, you lose some? Well this week we got our next property tax bill in the mail. Seems it has gone down; yes I said DOWN, by $2 a month!!!
Then we got our year end report from the Condo board and our condo fees have gone up by $40 a month! Personally that is a bit much and they have forecast that next year (July 2017) it will be up by another $55 a month. By then it will have gone up $125 a month since we moved in in 2014. We will have been in the house two years next week. After that last increase it will then be only going up a couple of percent per year. They need to get the reserve fund up to a certain point in a certain amount of time as per law. I am not impressed!
Off now to try and get as many groceries as possible for as little money as possible.......getting to be a harder and harder challenge nowadays though.
