3 days since....

... R has left Vancouver. For the last two nights, Kay has been sleeping in my bed. Every time R leaves, she ends up sleeping in my bed for about a week. Last night, I was trying to get her into her own bed but I realized how sad she felt not having her father with us as I got her ready to sleep. Yes, I still put my child to bed every night. Being the softie, I am, she ended up in my bed for another night. I know exactly how she feels. It seems so quiet without R being around. It takes us a day or so to get used to having him around and then, bam!, two weeks later he's on a plane back to Taiwan. Hopefully, this is the last year of it. Or else with his first million, he better use it towards therapy for Kay and I.....

Today, we trekked through the rain (pouring rain) to my mom's place one last time before she got back. Just to make sure her plants and her bird were doing ok. OMG, I think a few of my grandma's plants are dying. Kay was so shocked to see one of the large ones with yellow dried out leaves, she said we should just throw out the dying plants and replace them with new ones. I think I would go bankrupt trying to replace all the dying plants! I decided to trim the dead leaves and flowers off some of them so they don't look so obviously bad and uncared for. We changed and vacuumed the bird area, and Kay went to the freezer to grab a few more packages of her fave. snack. Before my mom left for HK, there was a huge box in the freezer (about 20 or so packages), she now has 3 in the freezer.....

We decided to go to the Mini Dollar Store down the street because Kay had to pick up a birthday card for H's birthday. She bought him a Sponge Bob tin can filled with his fave candy (gosh, his mom will be thrilled). It took a lot of tissue and clear wrap to giftwrap his birthday present! I picked up a few items from the Dollar Store (a brush for Kay, a couple of forks and mini chopping board for work and a lighter). Then we headed back up to Choices and picked up some fruit, milk and Parmesan & garlic salami. Yummy! I decided to make pizza for dinner tonight because Kay is feeling a little down and pizza is her fave food! She has this annoying way of asking for it, she circles you and gets into your face saying "Pizza!! Pizza!! Pizza!! Pizza!!", I'm sure you know what I mean. The salami, yellow peppers, mushrooms, and mozza cheese pizza turned out really good! I added a tsp of oregano and basil to the pizza dough recipe and we also added olive oil and crushed garlic to the rolled out dough before we placed it in the oven. Mmmmmmm.....Yummy! Pizza! Pizza! Pizza! Pizza! turned out so awesome! Much better than the last time we made it. Sorry R!! Next time you are in town, we will make it for you!

















I also picked up a pair of crops for myself. They fit so nicely and priced at a reasonable $25.00 plus taxes, compared to the Lululemon, I think these are way better! You could be paying up to $100 for Lulus.


Oops! You can see my fuzzy and very comfy flowered slippers! :) Ooooh... and my stretch marks!

Tomorrow, I'm back at the airport again. For the third time this week (Dad on Sunday - to HK, R on Thursday - to Taiwan). My mom/grandma should be coming in around noon. Kay is heading over to H's birthday party tomorrow afternoon. I gave her the other digital camera so she could take her own pictures. I really wanted to attend and take the pictures but I am not sure how long I will be with my mom and grandma. Gosh, I hope I make it back alive, I think my grandma will be pretty upset when she sees her prized flowers......
