Accomplishment

As we ushered the old year out .. and welcome the new year .. i feel pretty pleased with myself.. for raising funds.. for my kid’s school.  Asking for money from strangers.. is no easy feat.. i’ll have to tell you .. but when i think what an unselfish act it is.. and the many kids that will enjoy the playground because of my hard work.. i can tell you it’s worth a million bucks.

Dollhouse

The beginning of a dollhouse planned by the kid’s grandfather.  That’s only the base, hopefully, it will be done by next summer.  But knowing the kid’s grandfather.. hmmm…it should be done at least by fall.  He is feeling better the last time i saw him.

Cookie Dough

Ready made cookie dough are definitely the best invention.  Great for father & daughter’s time.. and bonding.  It was fun for the kid .. of course.. not so much for the dad.. since he had to do all the work.. but it turned out really good.  We loved the cookies, nothing beats cookies made with love.

Spoilt

Yes..! the kid is spoilt.  A gift of a guitar .. a real one .. Kawasaki from the babysitter’s parents.  I wished they didn’t spend so much money on her.  But the kid loves it.. so I’m thinking of doing things back for them… but don’t know where to start.

First Gift From The Kid

Going to school ..  definitely made my kid a lot more understanding.  She learned a lot of things.. and this is her first gift to me.. this Christmas.  Although, she bought it with our money and all.. but it was very thoughtful what she chose.  For me a necklace and a card of her handprint and photo.  For her papa, she had a touque and a glove.  It was heartwarming for sure.

Wii

The Wii remains the most sought after gaming system once again this year, even though it had been launched 3 Christmases ago to date.  The Nintendo Wii was sold out a month ago even though some folks from this town were crazy enough to queue up outside the local mall for it as early as 6.30am.  2 weeks before Christmas we had walk-ins, calls and many inquiries as to how they can get a Wii, since Walmart and even Amazon were sold out.  Some customer had tried eBay but most of the sellers were trying to cash in on the demand for it, but in my opinion it’s not worth paying that kind of price.

As much as I hate losing a sale, if we had none in stock there is really nothing we can do and the customers needs are very important, so we direct them to Lightinthebox.com because they have a large inventory of Nintendo Wii consoles.  Starting at US$35.99 with 10 Free Games and a 26 in 1 Sports pack, even Walmart can’t beat that.   For all your electronic needs, games and any other gadgets, check this site out first – good things must be shared, right?  So if you are still looking for one or know of someone who is, spread the word.

Sweet

Love my own present to myself.  It isn’t anything expensive..  but i had wanted one for a long time.  The first one i bought i had given it to the man’s mother.. because it was with owls.. and i know she loves owls.  But these days.. i try to take care of myself first.. but i’m not always successful.. as you can see.  A small and personal gift to treat myself.. once in a while is a good thing eh.

Storm

What a day..!!!  it was horrid..!! that’s all i can say for now.  I never want to ever have another go on this kinda weather.  It is not only scary.. !! boy..!!! we could have lost our lives.. from the cold because power was gone.. and all.  It was the longest few hours .. before we headed to a friend’s house to get some heat.  A wood stove is the way to go .. i guess next year for our spring project.  But once we put in the stove .. i’m sure we will never get another storm.. given our luck.

Etsy

Etsy is a life – saver.  Not only did i get something for myself i liked for Christmas.. but ialso gifts for my friends and family.  It’s an awesome way to get something personal for them.. and at least i was on time this time.
