Yes, I did: this afternoon, I went to Canadian Tire and bought the new skates. They are the &quot;new&quot; Recrative Skates (also called comfort skates). They are specifically made for women and, more specifically, for those of us who skate outdoors. They are sooooo comfortable. And my sweet DD (who just turned 9) had lots of fun lacing one up for me
She really is a sweetheart.
Now, I only need the weather to cool down a bit: it +7 Celcius today (translates to 44 Farentheit) and everything is melting. DD and her friend did go skating, but their skates and socks and pants are soaking wet!!!!
And the &quot;heat wave&quot; had some other consequences: because the terrain our house is on is sloped and the ice is melting, we've had lots
of water in our basement... where the PC is
So far we've been able to keep the water away from the appliances (we also have a tv and video games down here
) ... but DH had accidentally disconnected the Router this afternoon: both DS and I were panicking!!!!
We are having a very quiet New Year's Eve: just winding down after a relatively busy holiday season. DH and I go back to work on Tuesday but DS and DD have until the 10th to enjoy their X-Mas holidays. Tomorrow is going to bring our annual Shrimp Fest
I do want to wish all of my Hyster Sister all the best for the coming year. Most of all, may 2005 bring you good health!!!!
