It's warm out today. Got the fan running. the poor goldfish.

Let's see what have I been up to since I disappeared.

Working, going to school, running the household. The usual.

We paid off the car early this year (a little over a year early) with our Ralph bucks (Alberta had such a surplus they gave every person living in AB on Sept 31, 2005 some monies).

We purchased a mobile home on rented land last may. It is on a 5 year pay off. We got it just before housing just exploded here, not that it wasn't booming before. but the people had 2 kids, one on the way in a tiny trailer and wanted out so we got it for $10,000. We put $1500 down.

I'll write some more later right now I have to go and do more homework. I've got 5 courses left until i get my special needs educational assistant diploma.

Went to the library today. Found a yoga tape for me. I started doing yoga as part of a course I am taking at Barnes and Noble University (free, more free becuase I get the books from the library or just don't get the book at all if I can't find it). And it helps my stomach. I was to the point I thought I had IBS and was going to the doctor to probably get on some drugs. But yoga has done it.

Got Big Bear in the Blue House, Potty Time movie from the library. DD goes as long as she doesn't have underwear on. Driving me crazy. We almost bought this movie before Christmas for $10, used.

And we also borrowed Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya SisterHood. A movie DH would never watch. I wanted to get Top Gun but maybe I'll do that next week. All this time i thought our library never had any good videos.

Then we went and played at the park. The yoga is also helping my depression. So is the warm weather.

Got our Alberta Family Employment Tax Credit (120 twice a year). That was a nice bonus. It went right to the savings account. DH got paid and I have to go send that all to rent anyway.

And I sent my first assignment to my instructor. Very nervous. But I think it's okay. And I'm working on my second assignment. Well it's supper time so I guess I better go find something to eat.
