Non updates

Just haven't been feeling like updating this in a while. That, and I was posting via my phone when taking the bus and just don't have the free time now that I avoid the bus. And the lack of commentors just all add to not updating this on the regular.

But, L's doing great. His vocabulary is expanding like crazy. Right now, it's so cute getting him to do animal sounds. He knows them all! "what does a cat say?" "meow meow", a dog? "woof", a frog? "ribbit" (super cute), a lion? "rawwwr", a sheep? "baaaaa" etc etc.

My new place is still coming along. I try and get a little progress made everyday, but have a couple big jobs like painting to get done.

New iPhone is sweet. Everything is much faster. I had no problem jailbreaking and got all my needed apps back. I've started playing around with Simplify Media and then going to get my account linked with done friends who use it too. It lets you access all your media on your home pc via the phone. You can also share your collection with 30 ppl and access their media too. Hello 100's of GB of music wherever I am.

Long weekend ahead, but only cause I took holidays. WorkIng on the Quebec side, we don't get the august holiday. Booo. But some big plans so I'm looking forward... Especially if I run into those from nfld again ;)

A friend is in town visiting with her new daughter and L & I had a little BBQ fun with them. At first L wanted nothing to do with them, trying to say "bye" to them when we first arrived, but after a short warm up period, L started to get comfy with them and had a ton of fun. It was really cool to see her and her daughter, and great she finally got to meet my little one.

So yeah, want more consistant updates? Leave comments!! Lol

Stupid Rogers

Grrr, called to find out status on my 3GS only to be told it was delivered (to the old address) and they signed for it??!! Bah, so they have to get UPS to go claim it back, then forward to me. Good news though as it allowed for getting a month of bill credits for their screw up.

Other stupid Rogers mistakes ended up with no Internet at new place. I guess when I told them my new address the agent wasn't smart enough to actually order the relocation and just changed the address to bill. Boo, so no home Internet until Friday :/


wow, "ex" is just getting ridiculous. Wanting to send her bf to my parents house to pick up our son and not understanding why it's inappropriate. Threatening cops/custody and all kinds of shit. All for nothing. She said she had to work late and couldn't come pick him up. I told her that my parents and I were home and could watch him another day. This way she could continue working and L would be with family. Pretty reasonable I thought, and would help her out, but no, suggestion/offer didn't go over well (for no reason provided). And all the fighting/arguing all rendered moot as she came and picked him up anyways. Just another in the long, frustrating saga of trying to reason and provide the best care for our son.

On the other hand, he's doing awesome. My parents have this cool Nemo interactive book that L mastered with us. You turn to a page and touch a picture, then hunt for the actual item in the drawing. The book knows where you touch, and you get encouraging sounds when you locate the item sought. L was amazing at it, completely understanding all kinds of words and finding the right shapes/things it asked for. Things like "find the treasure chest" and L would touch it perfectly. Really cool.

I'll be moved in fully and get him back wednesday and can't wait to see his reaction to the new place. Loving it so far as I took long walks around the area this weekend.

Also got out yesterday to play a bit of tennis with a buddy. It's been a long time since I've picked up a racket and was happily suprised I could still play. My friend was still learning and I tried passing on some tips I remember learning in the various lessons/camps I went to growing up. Mainly though it was just fun being out and doing something active. It was also gorgeous out and perfect day to play. Looking forward to more games. (our lil game went 6-1, 6-2 I think).

Anyways, other than the drama, great weekend even tho I skipped on the cottage trip some buddies went on.
