Yes, favorite uncle, that does mean a visit from your favorite niece:). I will call you to confirm details. Secondly, WTF?! This is an excerpt from the Minot newspaper this week. And more snow is expected tomorrow... perfect. I'm hoping this means that they will have it all cleaned up by the time I get up there and they'll be set for the winter with no more big snow. Keep dreaming, Jules. Keep dreaming. This will for sure be an experience to remember. So when is everyone coming to visit?;)

Life is normal...?

So for those of you who haven't noticed the change in my current location above, I will be starting work in Minot, North Dakota in two weeks. The above are accurate portrayals of my shock at how I ended up with North Dakota. Long story short: I'm impatient and money speaks. I am ready to work and this was the fastest, best paying job I could get to. I am very excited as I will ONLY be 7.5 hours from MISS KATIE! and I will be 4 hours from several new friends in Winnipeg that I met on my tour of Europe. So, I am already planning reunions and I am excited to finally be getting my own place again. *Sigh*. I love Mom and Dad dearly but God did not mean for us to live in the same house forever. So, life will be back to normal... for me.:)

Before... and After.

Well, Miss M had her surgery today and all went well. However, additional stitching was needed as I had her teeth cleaned at the same time. Unfortunately, there were a few rotten teeth that needed to come out. Ew. M is tolerating the events remarkably well although I sense a little bit of anger from her:). She is currently wearing a cone on her head until at least tomorrow morning and has therefore been a source of amusement to the boys. I have to admit, it is a LITTLE humorous to watch her bump into things with that stupid cone on her head. The alternative is risking her ripping her stitches which I have no desire to deal with, so... the cone remains. The good: the bad eye and teeth are out, she should be more comfortable on a long-term basis. The bad: this may not save her last good eye; it may eventually succumb to the glaucoma. The ugly: the latest look that we're sporting. All in all, I'd say M came out the winner.
