Food for thought

I was just thinking today at work..
"Wouldn't it be nice if I could save money in my bank account the way my body saves fat.
And... in keeping with that.. wouldn't it be nice if I could loose weight the way my bank account looses money!!!"

Just thought you might enjoy my thought for today..

Extra Extra Read all about it...

Ok.. SO.. I was working in the Labeling room at Ivanhoe and was stamping boxes for the up coming days.
I was making Boxes that said "Extra Thick Cheddar", this required repetitively stamping the word "Extra" on many boxes.
Doing this, of course, caused me to think "Extra Extra read all about it" and said it a few times over in my head.
This then lead me to thinking " I wonder why they said Extra... is it because that was the name of thier paper? Was it because it was simply extra information that no one really needed to know?
So. my question to you is.. Why did they say "Extra Extra!" ?

"this is the Life"... an escape from reality

Chris took me on a romantic escape this past weekend. We Stayed in a fantansy sweet called the Montebello Room.
We arrived around 2pm and he made me stay in the car so I wouldnt know how much it cost.

Then we spent a relaxing evening in our complimentry bath robes, sipping champaign and soaking in the jacuzzi tub.

We had dinner at Crabby Joes.. at my request and had a hot complimentary breakfast the following morning at Cora's.

It was a wonderful escape and I am so very thankful for my sensitive Husband. He knew I needed it.
Thanks Babe!!!

To see more pics of the room check out my facebook page.

Packaging Cheese...

SO I finally have something to blog about now. Though it almost seems that blogging is a way of the past since Facebook has taken over my life.

I work at the Ivanhoe Chees Factory. I am still very new at this job and am trying to decide if I am factory material. I am a task oriented person and have a list of task that need to be accomplished in a day is actually something I like. As we finish each order and work our way down the list it is very rewarding. It's nice to be able to measure what i have done that day.

I must say, this job has given me a whole new perspective of hard working people who dedicate thier whole lives to this form of employment as a means to support their families. Cudos to you Dad.. You are a dedicated man and I never appreciated your sacrafices until now.

Getting up at 4am to be busy at work by 5am is a whole new thing for me and it has taken some time for me to adjust. Unfortunately I havent been very gracious with my husband when I get home and have actually been a little cranky on occasion in the last 2 weeks.
Ok I have been alot cranky.. and pretty unbarable at times. God Bless that man!!!

The Princess and her Kiss

We are reading this story at Girls Bible Study tonight. It's about a loving king and queen who present their daughter with a gift from God, her first kiss, to keep or to give away. The wise girl waits for the man who is worthy of her precious gift. Where is he and how will she ever find him? It's a great parable for saving yourself for marriage.
I am excited for our girls to hear it and am looking into purchasing the study guide called "Life Lessons From The Princess and the Kiss"
This has 21 lessons in it that we will follow covering the gift God has given us and why it is important for us to Honor God with that Gift. The books were written for girls who are very young but is adaptable for all ages. I am soooo excited about these Studies.. I just want every girl to know that She is a Daughter of THE KING.. she is a PRINCESS!!!!!!!!!

CAB Song

This is a picture of me singing the long lived CAB song at a Local Coffee House.
I bet Gray Gillies had no idea that weekday morning when she picked up Chris' guitar and played the only chord she new (A) and began to sing that she was creating a song that would be heard all over the country (at least in a different province)

This quant little song was first sung during Coffee Break at Taylor College in 2004. We had gone out dancing for my Birthday a while before and had a wild Cab experience. This experience caused Gray to share her past experiences in a Cab and then the wheels began to turn.

She picked up Chris' guitar at break and placed her fingers on the 2nd fret in just the right way to create the A chord. She strummed the A a little and then out came the song......

A before B except after C cab song..... That was the chorus that was sung in between the various lines...
We had a good laugh while telling our stories in song form (all on the same chord) then sticking the chorus in between each sentence. Before we knew it we had a real Pheobe song on our hands!

SInce then I have played the song a few times at home and then... it was Requested at the Coffee House.....
GASP.. I was terrified and excited all at the same time.. Little did the guys know that it has been a dream of mine to one day sing at a Coffee House like Pheobe from Friends, "Smelly Cat" style.

So.. Thank you Gray!!!!! you made my dreams come true!

Brush your teeth and FLOSS EVERY DAY!

Hello to all my dear friends and fellow tooth brushers.

Today I got my first 2 of 3 cavities drilled and Filled since I was a little Girl.
I had been so proud of myself for not having any fillings in my adult teeth until my visit to the Dentist this year.
I had not been to the dentist since I got married as I was no longer covered under my parents plan, so when Chris' plan went through we headed to the Dentist.

I WAS excited to have my teeth checked and cleaned

and then.. I got the bad news. I had 3 cavities, one of which was cause for great concern as it was on the brink of spreading into the nerve.

So, today I had 2 molars drilled and drilled and drilled and scraped and blood sucked and rinsed until they couldnt drill, scrap, suck or rinse anymore.

This experience was not as fun as I remembered it being as a little girl.
My Dentist would tell me that he was going to poke me with a magic wand and it would make my mouth feel funny and then he was put a rain coat with buttons over my mouth and it would soon be over..plus.. I knew that when I was done I would get a SWEET TOY.

Today.. was not the same... and I have concluded that either my childhood Dentist was a liar or that this guy was plain old mean.
He poked me with a needle.. and there was nothing magic about it.. and then he poked again and again and again.. I rememinded myself as he was poking me that I would soon appreciate the needle as he drilled.
Does this look like a magic wand to you????

Then.. He attempted to put the Rain coat on but the Button Popped off! AND part way through the proceedure he decided to wedge it in a little further.. Praise God for that needle!
Have you ever seen a Rain Coat that looked like this?

Any way.. to top it all off.. I ended up with a sore mouth and NO TOY!

So a word to the wise.. FLOSS FLOSS FLOSS.
I hate flossing but not as much as I hate getting a filling.
Tell me about your favorite or least favorite visit to the dentist.

Hello Friends,
This is our kitty, Oscar.

Our First Christmas Away from Home

Hello to everyone, and Merry Christmas too!
I know I am late blogging about Christmas but its better late then never.
This year was very different for us as we did not go home for Christmas.
We Celebrated Jesus Birthday with new friends and church family.
Christmas Eve was a balmy 12 degrees Celsius and that was strange all by itself! I called home and Chatted with my folks and had Dad read "The Night Before Christmas" over the phone to me.. its family Tradition.
We went to an old Country chapel with a wood stove and lanterns to sing Christmas Carol that Christmas Eve Night, it was very nice. We then went to our Friends home for Appetizers and we ate waaaaayyy too much! We got home very late and by the time our stockings were out and we were in Bed it was 2:30am. I used to get up then for Christmas morning.
Dad called at 6:30 to get us out of Bed and wished us a Merry Christmas. We then opened our Stockings and Called Chris' family.
WE then loaded up the Car and went to Another Friends house for Christmas Morning, WE had Breakfast at 8am and opened our gifts all together. We stayed with this family for the day and had Christmas Dinner in the Afternoon and went home around 5:30.

Exhausted we went to Bed and fell asleep watching "All Dogs Go to Heaven", Chris got it for Christmas.

Boxing day was strange for us too as we got up, loaded up the car and went to the Toronto Airport.. we were off to URBANA!
