Lots of kids + party + McDonald's = loud [101/145]

So, yeah, I'm writing this article while at a McDonald's. Dean was invited to a birthday party and kits the one with the playground equipment... So it's quite loud.  Hardly the place I'd expect to get caught up in my personal blog.

But here I am.  And in some way, it's fine.  I'm testing out the new blogger app.  It's good practice for the new project in the new year.

So, what have I been up to? But much.  Business as usual really.  Work should quiet down soon, I'll get a little reprieve during December.

Speaking of work, it looks like I'm done biking to work now. I now have a spot... it's in the parkade, but at least it's a spot, plus it just snowed.  A lot.

With the snow I got to practice the whole snowblowing of the the back lane.  Brutal.  And it went from 0 to 20cm over night. No in between.

And like that... I blink and the weekend's over (I'm now writing as of Monday).

Sucky thing about the snow is that it looks like that means that's it as for the biking.  Lots of snow on the ground.  Oh, well.

What else happened?  Well I was feeling pretty under the weather on Sunday.  Mandy's house sitting as of last night (her parents are going to Minni).  Dean's getting used to our new Christmas tradition with the "Elf on the Shelf".  I'll put a post up about that soon.

Oh... and tell me what you think... what colour is this?

Hallowe'en - Not for Dean [94/132]

Just a quick note, as I didn't do this last week.  Dean loves costumes.  He loves that Mandy made him an AWESOME costume this year.


Seriously... it was wicked cool.

Unfortunately, for some reason, Dean has become quite shy.  Shyer than before... nothing alarming, but lately everything he's afraid of.  Can't go upstairs alone, can't go to the washroom alone... just weird.  But, he's a kid, so hopefully it's just a phase.

Well, what happened was we went out to go trick-or-treating and he wanted to go to his 'girlfriend's house first, and see her, but she wasn't there.  Now, whether that set him off balance, or what, he wouldn't go to any other house after that.

We'd go to a house, and it'd be "it's too scary", or "that one doesn't have any decorations".  The best was "I only want to go to houses that are a little bit scary."  Hilarious.  Yet, disconcerting.  One lady on her porch almost 'chased' Dean as she came to the curb to give him candy, but he kept retreating and she kept trying.

Almost painful.

In the end we just went home with only 2 houses gone to.  It's okay tho', on Sunday we had gone out with Dean and Eliza to a few of the relatives' house for pre-trick-or-treating.  Our families spoil the kids mercilessly.
