Two tests down, three to go!

I wrote English and Math tests today. I got 90% on the English test but I don’t know yet about math. I’m anticipating 93.7%. On Friday I have to write an Economics quiz, an Accounting pre-test, and on Monday my Computers midterm. I know it doesn’t sound like anything big, but I prefer to do nothing. I’ll post again when I know some more marks.

By the way, thanks everyone for the birthday partay, food, and gifts.

Love One Another

Andrea’s FHE lesson tonight was Love One Another. At the end of it she had us play an activity called “Guess who loves me”. We were supposed to say something that someone in the family did for us (without saying who it was) and we were supposed to guess who it was. At first we found it difficult to think of things. With family, we often take for granted the loving, simple things we all do for each other. But when a person who isn’t in the family does it, we notice it more. Anyway, once we got going, we could think of all sorts of things that people had done for us (computer help, dinners, birthday parties, babysitting, helping move, feeding us/clothing us, etc).

Celebrating 110 years!

Everyone (Alisa, Jason, Nanny, Dad, Mom, Andrea, and Brianna) came over (Lisa, Julia, Andrew, Matthew and I were already here) at about 3 pm. Alisa and Jason brought most of the food (chicken and ceasar salad) and while the meat was cooking, we relaxed in the living room and chatted. We decided to do the presents before dinner. Andrea got a good haul, but her favourite seemed to be a Maurauder’s Map based around Hildaworts. Jason is so good at that paper stuff! Nanny got lots of candy. For dessert, Julia made a cake and Lisa made Andrea’s favourite “sugar dessert”.

We’re just hanging around now after dinner.

Here are the two birthday girls (click on the picture to see a larger version):

Happy Birthday Andi

This month is such a special one, it’s birthday time for you.
We’d really like to celebrate your happy day with you.
Zip-a-dee-ay and high-dee-ho, here’s something we can do.
We’ll sing a song that we all know, Happy Birthday, to you!

35395, Children’s Songbook, Fun and Activity, Your Happy Birthday, 283
You can listen to the song here.

Happy 28th (oops, that you’re “real age“), I mean 21st birthday!

I think we need to have an intervention

I bug Julia all the time for how late she goes to bed. Andrea was up late the other night and said that Julia logged in to MSN after 2 am. I’m sure Julia is sick of us all bugging her, but she says she doesn’t stay up that late. Well, last night I was woken up at 2:41 am by her coming home from the YSA activity in Toronto.

It’s not the fact that she’s staying up late, it’s the denials. The first step is admitting the problem, and that’s why she needs an intervention. Here we go:

It’s ok Julia. You have a problem. You stay out late. You stay up late (watching Gilmore Girls, ewww!) But it’s ok. You can overcome. There is nothing wrong with admitting that you have a problem. Other people have similar problems. Andrew used to have the same problem. He used to fight going to bed. He refused and kicked and screamed because he didn’t want to go to bed. But now he’s ok. He winds down with his routine chart, and goes to bed easily. You can do it, too. Just make yourself a routine chart, clean up your toys and brush your teeth, and just go to bed. You can do it! We’re here for you.

There, I feel better at least.

(of course as I type this she’s downstairs asleep 🙂 )

Who’s this?

A year or so ago we hired a web marketer at work and he insisted on a good scanner. It had the accessories to scan negatives, and I used it a couple of times and just saved the pictures. I was looking at them the other day, and saw this picture. I didn’t know who it was at first (I’m not good at that), but Lisa knew right away. You can click on the thumbnail to view a larger picture.

Yep, It’s Evy and Ryan. I’m not sure if she’s poking him in the eye, tickling him, shoving something into his mouth, or trying to get something out of his mouth.

I figured it was ok to post the picture because the water blurs out certain… things 🙂

Buckhorn… good times!

Oasis, House, Dig!

If Andi can post about Dawson’s Creek than i can post my good news. I managed to get tickets to see Oasis live in Toronto even though they sold out within the first day! YAY! I’m so EXCITED! I can’t wait to go. In other news, next week Robyn, Stacey and I are going to look at a three bedroom house that’s only a five minute walk from campus. We’re excited. Hopefully it’s nice. And I found out yesterday that I don’t have to go on a dig until NEXT summer, which is a big relief. That’s it for now.

What Is Supply Chain Management?

That’s a darn good question. I’m trying very hard to read my text book for tomorrow’s lecture and I am so beyond boredom. So, posting on my day today. I went to school a half hour early to teack someone some math and then I had my hour of microeconomics and my hour of math. Then I went to Best Buy to chat with some people and looks for gift ideas for dear old Brie to get me.

I’m now at home finding any excuse not read “Principles of Supply Chain Management” and I found some extremely good news on amazon.ca. THE FINAL SEASON OF DAWSON’S CREEK WILL BE RELEASED ON APRIL 4, 2006!!!!!!!!

That’s it for now!
