About Me

Whew! We are finally moved and have unpacked enough boxes to get by for now. It took longer to get the internet set up than I thought. Because of the area we are in, DSL and cable are not options for internet for us. The only options were dial-up (ick!) or a rural service where they had to install a pole on our roof to reach above the treeline. That took a while so I was without internet for almost 3 weeks!!! Talk about withdrawal! Our kitchen is going to be installed the first week of December (we are working out of boxes, a table, and a plastic wash tub right now), and our flooring will go in after that (right now it is just the plywood subfloor and a LOT of throw rugs!). I can live without a kitchen and without proper floors, but doing without the internet was brutal! lol Anyway, I'm glad to be back....

I'm a happily married mom of two teenage daughters and 1 German shepherd. I live in a small town in central Ontario. I'm a bit of a dreamer and I'm full of ideas. I have a HUGE sweet tooth and no allergies. I'm very neutral when it comes to religion and believe that everyone has an equal right to their own thoughts and beliefs.

Comment: Thank you very much for the lovely lovely postcard! I think it must be awesome having so many lakes around you. I live in a semi-desertic city, so we don't have all that many rivers or lakes... You have a very neat writing, you know? I'm jealous! :)
Response: I have to admit, it is nice to have all these lakes. We are very lucky! Thanks for the compliment on my handwriting - a trait I got from my mom! Thanks also for the great rating!
