Oliver gave Jordon and I pink eye. For that act of love we are actively shopping him to gypsies. They sadly saw he had pink eye and ran away screaming. A million eye drops later and we are all better.
Mark’s report card came out and he did well as usual. He is off to his uncle Lee’s tonight to play games, watch television, discuss Band of Brothers, and male bond. I feel bad for Brittany. Both Lee and Brittany are wonderful to both Oliver and Mark and Mark loves his weekends out to Warman with them. I think some breaks from Oliver makes life a little easier on him.
Oliver doesn’t think quite so highly of these trips as be is both jealous and misses Mark. He was fine today but last time he wanted me to “phone Uncle Lee and get my Marky back”.
It’s the kind of relationship I once envisioned my boys having with my family but that’s never going to happen. I am not sure even if we were closer and they didn’t hate me, it would happen. It’s good that they have Lee though.
We are off to the cabin for the first time in 2012. We are taking up some new pillows, some food, heaters, and a new grill up to the lake this week. We may try to spend the weekend up there next weekend but it will depend on the weather as it is still a bit early. The process of opening up the cabin starts.
Our watch repair guy is gone! The process of finding a new one starts today. Jordon is not a jewellery guy (although he has bought me some nice stuff over the years), he does love his watches and has some that need some work and cleaning. We used the guy in Confederation Mall for years but he is gone. Apparently there are a couple of good guys downtown so we will start there.
