night I watched Heroes
because it came on before Studio 60. I liked it in an X-Men sorta
way, meaning the whole time I thought "Man, Sean would love
this." But Sean has volleyball every Monday night, so I may
just have to get the first season on DVD next year.
Today I signed up for Mothers
Unfolding because Debra's in the class and I wanted us to do
something together. This woman also taught Deb & Dave's birthing
class. We didn't take a class. And I still wonder if a class could
have possibly helped but OHMYGOD I'm still not ready to talk about
This afternoon I met Michelle
only to give her the royal shaft by saying "Yeah I have a dentist's
appointment in ten minutes, nice meeting you." I spoke
of my embarassment to Sean tonight. What a way to make friends,
huh? Her daughter is 18 days older than Ever, and she lives near
us - we should be hanging out. But I made the appointment
right before leaving to go meet Michelle, and I really wanted to
get my teeth cleaned.
The dentist is Dr. Sarika Anand, and anyone in Burnaby should go
see her at Metroplex
in the Metropolis Mall*. While getting my teeth polished, she walked
around with Ever. Before that, while getting my teeth cleaned, Ever
sat on my lap.
They were very understanding there.
*Not a paid advertisement. I swear.
Ever & my
Also of note, Mark
to MiHwa, his long-distance girlfriend of, um, years. Longer
known him (<-- will take about twelve minutes to load that stupid
page). I am so very happy for them!
Also, Travis & Laura
are pregnant, and marrying later this month! (All this local news!)
Margeret, Ever, Sean, Randy
Ryan & Margeret
Sean's Dad was here
last Sunday through Wednesday and the time just flew by. Sean's Mom Margeret
and brother Ryan arrived Tuesday morning and I met them at the border
to import the minivan. We had family dinners at our house both Tuesday
and Thursday nights. It was a busy week, but I like it that way.
Did I tell you that Sean got promoted at work? He got promoted at work.
And the new position includes a company van, and within two days we both
had "new" vehicles. Vans, no less. We will be selling
both my Honda and his Kia soon.
The Dad van
The Mom van
LOVE LOVE LOVE the minivan. It's like an apartment on wheels.
It has power everything and that key chain that locks and unlocks
the doors. It's so open and spacious that I don't worry that Ever
can only see the back of the back seat of the car. It has dual sliding
doors which makes for easy loading and unloading and it's the extended
model for easy trips to Costco. Although parking it feels like parking
a school bus, but I'll get used to it.
Sean has signed up for volleyball again this fall all the way over
at our old place in Vancouver at Jericho Beach so tonight Ever and
I made his favorite cookies (Dad's Oatmeal) and had a fun bath before
hunkering down to watch Studio
60. Bring on the autumn!
