first. i took the day off from work last friday (for a dentist appointment in the morning and because i plainly wanted a day off). The dentist went better than I expected and it was a nice day out, so we brought Devin sledding at the snow hill and then we decided to go snowmobiling too!
Snowmobiling didn't turn out so well this time LOL funny story. We brought D to a drop-in daycare and headed out of town just about 15 miles. Pulled both sleds off the trailer, started the good one (robs haha) and then I went over to the truck to get my helmet and other gear on while Rob started my sled. Snowmobiles start the same way as a lawnmower, so Rob pulled the rope twice and pulled it right out! boooo, so it wouldn't start without the rope so we had to drag it right back up on the trailer (soooo heavy!) and go home. We actually went out to eat without Devin since he was already at the daycare and it was awesome even though Rob was super bummed about the sled, we never go anywhere without our boy!
saturday. Devin and me went to a film festival thing at the movie theater. the only thing i had read was that they were playing a family movie for $2at 10am. We went and the movie was Rise of the Guardians. I had no idea what that was, but both of us really liked it. Afterward we went for coffee and a smoothie at McD and then for a haircut for Devin. His haircuts are always super cute and he sat really well for the lady!
Sunday we stayed home and had a lazy day (which I love, especially when it's a 3-day weekend)
Monday, my boss said we could get a half-day off without using vacation this week, my day turned out to be Tuesday.. the next day. Also, I started a new knitting project, which I am loving so far!
Yarn: knit picks stroll tonal
Wednesday.. a regular day. But it was sunny so that helped! I also had time to go visit with one of my friends, I haven't had alot of friend time lately so this was awesome, we even got to play some Wii mario brothers together :)

Another great thing about thursday was after supper, we went out to get some things (my list was lightbulbs, milk, shorts for devin for gymnasics) we got what all we needed and the lightbulbs! I have never been so happy about lightbulbs before, we have a ceiling fan in our dining room that I have never been able to buy the right lighbulbs for, so for about 2 years, NO LIGHTS in the dining room. Well, I finally pulled my head out of my butt and looked at the socket for a size. Then I researched that size on google before going out to buy it. It is not a common size bulb so that's why I've bought bulbs for this thing 5 seperate times and still not come up with the right size! Finally we have light! I can't even say how crazy it has made me that I couldn't find the right bulbs and it was dark in there this long!
Friday, I get off work at 2pm and it is a snow day. Winter is not giving up over here and I am ok with that for once because we do want to go snowmobiling a bit more before spring. I am loving the sun, doing ok with the snow, and not loving the cold wind, so I am conflicted LOL
Sorry for the novel but it really was a great week! Little things make me happy!
