So, I signed up for my very first swap ever tonight over at Renee's blog. Jenn told me that I had too. No really, I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone else comes up with!! I already have something in mind for it too!
Today was a quiet day with not much happening. Last month Richard flew out to Alberta to visit his Grandma and came back with this game. We spent some time playing it this afternoon & wonder of wonders, I managed to win a game!! That almost never happens because I'm just not very good at strategy. The kids really love to play it & it's kind of neat. I'm loving that they're finally getting old enough to start playing board games with. You can find out more about it here.
I spent some time tonight looking into flights, trains & buses to Ottawa. I really want to go see Jon, Christine & Aydon, but don't want to drive the 8 hour trip there by myself. The train seemed to be the best deal, but still requires driving into Toronto & for me that's scary!! I can drive a big 72 seat school bus loaded with primary students, but I'm a chicken when it comes to driving on the major highways. Go figure, eh? Anyways, I'm still trying to work out all the logistics of the trip, too, and right now it's not looking too hopeful. Sometime in the new year might end up working out better for me.
Now I'm gonna go dive into a good book!
Have a great night, all!
