Second Post of the Year! (no, I won't do this all year....)

Well! I'm sure there are dozens of people waiting with bated breath to hear what is new in our lives.... or at least one or two???
It has been really busy around here lately. I'm not sure why - just life accelerated somehow! Must be the new year..
Momentous news:
Last year Art broke $1,000,000 in sales (quite an accomplishment!) and the company rewarded him with a travel voucher!! Which means.... WE ARE GOING ON A VACATION!! SOMEWHERE WARM AND SUNNY WITH A BEACH!! WITH NO KIDS!!! So that's pretty momentous, isn't it?? Deanna is quite put out that we would do that and leave them here in the cold. I said well, that's too bad, sometimes life is like that. Ha Ha Ha. Right now the Dominican Republic is looking very very nice!
First things first, we had to apply for passports, since we've never gone anywhere outside of Canada. With all the horror stories and panic lately with the United States tightening their borders, we were a little concerned that they would not arrive in time, but mine came today. So at least I am going away...
We are going with another couple, and are looking at dates in February. The good part is that we can get some good last minute deals, so we will have some "voucher" left over to do something special with the kids in the March Break. Niagara Falls.... Great Wolf Lodge.... or even just a hotel with a pool somewhere.

Any other news seems rather humdrum after all that, doesn't it? Tomorrow is Twin Day at CCS. Everyone wanted to know what Allison and Amanda were going to be. I wanted to dress them as total opposites. They are, after all, twins every other day of the year. This day they could be the anti-twins. However, they are 6 and don't understand irony, so they will be.... princesses. Are you surprised? Me neither.

And now, bedtime. I was informed by my doctor today that my thyroid is too low and I must up my meds. This may explain why I've been tired lately. So ... good night....

Sounds exciting! The trip I mean, although Twin Day could be fun as well. When I was at CCS, I twinned with Mr. Kort (I think there was an odd number of students or something).

Hope you feel better, and get your thyroid straightened out.

I should also explain my name on that comment. the "strong" stuff is HTML coding which I put around my name on my blog so that it is in bold, and the other text in the "About Me" space is wrapped in "em" which is for italics. I should probably delete the HTML around my name...

Ah, I see. I did wonder...

Warm...sunny...beach...Hey, I know just the place. I've been spending every day at the beach lately while the kids do swimming lessons. It's definitely warm and sunny here, and the beaches are sparkling blue....How about coming out here for a visit!!! Accomodation is free (although then I can't guarantee the kids free bit here!) and I'm sure we have a vehicle available as well....is it working yet? Are you coming????

By the way, what does your beloved hubby do for a living??

Hee Hee.... I would love to visit "down under" someday. This time around, we are thinking somewhere a little closer, though, sorry. A week is not quite long enough for a trip to Oz!
My hubby is a sales rep for a company called Heatlink. They manufacture radiant in-floor heat systems. Probably not much call for that where you live, is there?
He has been with the company for .. 6 years (?) They're a smallish company, really good to work for, based in Calgary, Alberta.
How bout your Dave? What keeps him busy?
