Little Pea

Part of a belated birthday present for my niece! Izzie keeps trying to steal it, she just took it out of my suitcase and was running up and down the hallway with it and pouncing on it!


Let's see, we leave for Florida tomorrow, well Spokane, because we have a 6am Saturday flight, and I still have to...

+ do laundry
+ pack for me and Blair
+ get Izzie's stuff ready for the kennel
+ go to yoga [edit: wasn't feeling good, so I stayed home and got more accomplished!]
+ clean my fridge
+ prep my bathroom ceiling, actually I have to make Blair do that because it's a blue job and tape off my guest room ceiling because they're both getting painted while we're gone
+ wait impatiently for my TQS card and bring it and my BCCOT certification to the board office so that I can teach when I get back... I really hope I get my TQS card before 2pm tomorrow, so fingers crossed!!
+ make another stuffed pea (maybe)
+ wash our bedding and aactually re-make the bed

I tidied the house last night because friends came over to watch top model on the projector :) So it's nice that I'm done with that, and I did get most of the laundry done, just not folded or put away!

I'm not looking forward to fitting toiletries into a quart bag and making sure my containers are 3oz or less... I think I'll check most of it, I mean were going to Florida, and if worse comes to worse I'll just buy new stuff... because WE GOT OUR MONEY from selling the lot... which means we get to go on vacay again in either January or February...

Well I've over stayed my welcome and I'm now late for work!!

I got a letter from Student Aid BC telling me that I am eligible for the loan reduction program and that my loan was being reduced by a nice large number... which is great... BUT... I paid my loan off 5 months ago... so now I have to find out if, when and how I will get some of my money back.

I had my "interview" for the TOC list today, but it was really just an information session, and I forgot my resume, but did remember everything else I needed, so I'll be revamping my resume after yoga tonight and dropping it off tomorrow. By the time we get back from our trip I should be able to make big bucks, in fact even bigger bucks than I thought, because the pay scale got bumped again!!!

We're still waiting for our money to get to us for the land we sold, considering it has been the property of the new owner for 2 weeks now and we haven't gotten our cheque yet...

We leave for Florida in a little over 2 weeks and I'm super excited for several reasons: SUN, a break from work, shopping, seafood, sephora, snorkeling, visiting with family, sephora, shopping and SUN, oh yes and a week with just Blair and I in Daytona Beach, after a week with my parents and niece on Key Largo... I'm excited that we get to try out our digital camera's underwater abilities while we're down there!! And Izzie seems to do fine at the kennel, so I don't feel too too bad for leaving her, we had her there when we were in Nelson 2 weekends ago and she seemed to do fine, even though I really missed her and her crazy antics.

Hope everyone had a great thanksgiving, mine was eventful to say the least!
