time just seems to fly!
We had a good weekend. The Hen Party was good.
Today I'm going to take Connor to get a new pair of sneakers for school.
I finally finished my assignment today and submitted it, yay!! Hopefully it was good enough to get a decent enough grade - if I had to repeat this subject I think I would go crazy! Now I just need to study for the exam on September 2.
Michael is away at the moment so it's just Mitchell and me once he's home from school and I'm quite enjoying it. Mitchell got his hair cut and we went grocery shopping after school and it was fun - he's just such good company. Yesterday he came with me to an open day at the uni I'm planning on going to next year. They had some science-type demonstrations and he loved it. One of the guys asked him what he wants to do when he grows up and he said he wants to be a scientist, was so cute :) Today Mitchell wanted to know when he could go to my uni again :)
Then we went shopping because Michael had given Mitchell a bit of money to spend from the travel money he got from his work. Mitchell bought a Bakugan he'd been after and then we had lunch together in the food court.
Mitchell's been talking to Michael on the phone properly for the first time too and it's so funny. He gets that it's polite to ask questions so when he spoke to Michael last night he asked, "so is your bed nice and neat, Daddy?" LOL!
My car needs a service and I'm hoping to catch up with friends but no other major plans for this week.

Good Monday morning! Our phone and internet went out completely yesterday morning. We had a ticket in for someone to come out and check the line but this morning it is magically working so we canceled it. I think in reality there was a problem with something and they might have already fixed it, even though they acted on the phone like we were stupid and it must be our fault. One guy told us we must not have something plugged in properly...puhleeze! Fingers crossed that it doesn't go down again!
We had a nice weekend. Friday night we went to the fair. Travis and his friend rode lots of rides, ate corn dogs and cotton candy, etc. They stayed up VERY late! After we dropped the friend off we went to hockey and Travis played a great game, despite being tired. He spent the night with my mom while dh and I went out to a trivia fundraiser for a childhood leukemia society. Our team won second place, which means we got back some of our entrance fee. Plus, I won a $25 gift certificate to Applebees in the raffle! Yay!!
Yesterday we did some yard work and then got in the pool for the first time since the end of June, then got in again after supper. We had a big storm last night with lots of lightning.
Today...laundry this morning, then back to my home away from home...the ice rink! Travis has another clinic this afternoon, they learn about checking in this one so should be fun. He'll have to leave 15 minutes early because his drum lesson is at an earlier time today so we'll have to quick get out of his gear and then race to that. Then home for dinner and then he has another percussion band lesson this evening.
Sounds a nice father/son chat!
Another busy day for you and Travis by the sound of things.
I'm glad your IT is working again.
