Hangin' At Bran's

So I'm hanging out at Brandy's tonight with Trapper and Ghislaine... Surprisingly Logan isn't here (the infamous Brangan has been separated hehe) but he's sick so that's not cool... =(

We enjoyed a delicious dinner tonight, thanks to Brandy and Ghislaine! =) Caesar salad, yellow beans, and curry chicken, oh my gosh yummo! =D it was just a bag salad, but the dressing was really good, not too garlic-y... And beans are one of my fave veggies, so that was great! And curry chicken..... mmmmmmmm curry........ and chicken.......... =)

I'm not really sure what to update about haha... I just wanted to come post something...

Oh! So today I got a bunch of stuff done! I went to the bank and got my address changed, went to Wagner (sp?) to look into getting some valid photo ID, and got some apartment insurance (since my mom's been bugging me to haha), went to MTS and got my address changed there, stopped at Mom's to get a UPS slip so I can go pick up my package on Tuesday, went back home and did a load of laundry (washed, dried, folded, and put away, chyeah!), got a visit from Mom and Granny, then got a ride up to Brandy's, where I am now, woop!

Haha so I have the greatest grandmother in the world! While she and my Mom were over, I had told them I had a box of stuff to go to the thrift store, and so they went through it, and I had my black dress from my high school grad in there because it's too small to fit now... My grandma liked it so she tried it on over her clothes, and it would fit her very well without the extra clothes underneath, so she took it home. And it looked very nice on her! =D She tried saying it was too young-looking for her, but Mom and I convinced her it looked great, so she took it. Yay! =D

Alright, well I'm gonna get back to hanging out with Bran, Trapper and Ghislaine, and have a few drinks with them. Until next time! =)

So.... Haven't updated in a while, so I figured I'd post something now, but I only have 20 minutes so I'll have to keep it quick...

First thing's first! I've been trying to work through something pretty personal, so I'm not gonna share what it is (yet?)... But I have recently confided in a good friend, and as it turns out, she's gone through it too! Hazzah! So that was a bit easier for me, talking to someone who knows what I'm talking about... Not that my issue is resolved - far from it - but at least I was able to tell someone who isn't actually involved in it, and that makes me feel better. =)

Work is going well, still working with the 2-yr-olds, still loving it! =D There are moments where I doubt myself and when I wonder why the heck I'm doing this, but then there are those moments where you see the fruits of your labour and you know exactly why you do it and it makes it all worthwhile! For example! My newest girl likes to grab a toy, throw it in one direction, then wander off in the other direction. When I catch this happening, I'll go guide her to the toy she threw and help her pick it up and put it away where it belongs. I haven't really seen any impact it's had on her, but last week her mom came in and asked about how we get her to clean up her toys, and so I told her. Turns out, this child had made a big mess with her toys at home, but then cleaned them up all on her own. I was so excited!!! =D She's been doing better with activities too, when she first started she didn't really want anything to do with them, but she's been showing more and more interest and spending more time doing the activities, and her mom is so excited about that! And it makes me excited too seeing her progress like that! =D

Another of my little boys is at the stage where he mimics EVERYTHING he sees me do! LOL it's so cute watching him now, cuz he'll even just do stuff that I would do without me even doing it first! For example, today one of the baby's shoes fell off, and so he went and picked it up, brought it back to the baby, and said, "We need to keep our shoes on Mister Mister!" I nearly lost it, it was so darn cute!!! =D He's very independent too, he wants to do everything himself! Which is totally fine with me, cuz he needs to learn to do things anyways... Ahhhh I love my kids!!!!! =)

Also, these past two weeks I've been house- and dog-sitting at the Butler's with Sandra. SOOOO fun! Oh my goodness we've watched so many movies, hung out a ton, went shopping, went to the Manitoba Children's Museum with the kids of one of the other daycare staff (we were babysitting), went to the zoo, and had so much fun! Oh goodness, we have so many insiders now, it's awesome! I'm gonna miss that.... =(

PS I have a new theme song for myself! "I'm Awesome" by Spose. Okay, not for real, but I heard it last night at pool and I claimed it as my own haha.

But I must go, gotta get back to work...
