How is everyone?? Noone is posting. I have been really busy and I have been sick this week. Not a good combo...

Talk to you soon!!

Hi Nikki,

Hope you are doing better already, not a good thing to be sick at the weekend!

You are right, the board seems to be in a deep, deep sleep since a few days. Let's hope it is a beauty sleep ;-)

My weekend (I am in Germany that's why mine is already half way over) has been pretty productive by now. Have cleaned my windows, managed to really clean up the whole area around my computer (including dusting and re-arranging all cables, sorting the software and my picture Cds) and have made some more plans for Rob's coming in 2 weeks and 2 days. As he is on a golf tournament of his company the whole day we had just a short 15 minute phone conversation this morning but he promised me to catch up tomorrow. So I guess my Sunday won't be that productive ;-)

A great weekend to everybody and "get well soon-greetings" to all who may be sick.

Nicole

Doing very well here, thanks. Had to go to a funeral in Toronto today, and we just got home a while ago.

Hope you and Willy are feeling better!

Are you getting nervous about Rob coming out? I remember those days!! No matter how many trips that Willy made to visit me, the day before I always got nervous. I wanted to make sure the apartment was spotless and that I had my legs shaved, of course.. hehehe Usually the night before he came, I couldn't even sleep!!

Do you guys have anything special planned while he is visiting?

I am sorry to hear about your loss, Kelly.. It is always hard to lose someone.

I am feeling better.. My problem is my blood pressure. It has been so high lately, and I had to go to the emergency room because I got really dizzy at work and I went to the nurses station and my blood pressure was in the stroke zone. So I am just trying to relax and cut out my salt and stuff and get new medications into my system. It is crazy.. but I feel alot better. thanks...

How are you and Steve?

We're doing well, thanks. Enjoying our freedom at home (you know..walking around naked...keeping the bathroom door open if we want...and the bedroom door open while having our fun..lol) since the the kids are back in Ottawa for school. But we miss them as well and they won't be back home until Christmas. This is their last year, and they'll both be going on to other cities when school is done, so I guess we should get used to this. Oh well...we'll see...they have their plans now...who knows what'll happen once the year is done. We may end up having them both back and we'll be pulling our hair out waiting for them to leave....lol

Hopefully the new meds will help your blood pressure, Nikki. Certainly this is something you don't want to fool around with...glad you're relaxing and taking the other steps you need to to get it under control. It's hard to give up salt tho..lol..I had to do this during one of my pregnancies...that was tough to do. Good luck with that and take care Nikki.

Nervous is not the right word, excited hit's it better I guess. Of course I have to do some things in the apartment (and on myself ;-)) but as I am a last-minute-person I will probably be very busy the 1-2 days before he arrives.

As it is his first time in Europe I would of course like to show him as much as possible but on the other hand a week is not that much and Cologne alone would have more than you could do in one week. Of course I would like to have some quality time with him without running around from one sightseeing spot to another. I have asked him what he definitely wants to see and will arrange some surprises around that. Now that I have his flight dates I can start planning a little bit more detailed but I guess I will just collect alternatives and leave it up to our mood and things like the weather what we are going to do eventually.

When we started planing the trip we wanted to spend the weekend in Paris but I am not sure yet if that's still in our financial budget. We will see.....

Hi Nikki, hope you are feelin good already. Warm hugs for ya.!

Board is silent these past few days, i think everyone is busy. I was busy too at work,had some orders to make (invitations and business cards). My Sunday was a good one, went out to the mall with mom and bro's family. Bought a nice dress for my cute lil niece b/c on the 20th she will be baptized and i'm sure its a great occasion to look forward too.

I hope everyone will participate once in a while in our daily fun just like we used too. Posts some ladies and take care everyone. Hope to hear from you all.

Thanks for your well wishes... I am feeling better today.

Sometimes the board goes into lulls.. this seems like one of them. Sounds like you had a great weekend, I love spending time with my family.. and at the mall makes it even better.. lol I am such a sucker for buying clothes for little girls.. expecially frilly dresses.. hehehe Willy tells me that when we have a daughter, with my luck.. she will hate wearing girly clothes, just because I want to put her in them so much!!

Since the board has been slower, I have been trying to make sure I get on here and check everything out. I will participate as much as possible in the daily fun..
