Happy Halloween

Hello, hope everyone is doing well. I'm enjoying peace and quiet - my company is out sight-seeing with my husband and I'm doing laundry and using heat to baby my sore muscles. Started with a personal trainer yesterday - hoping for amazing results eventually. :-) We're meeting 2x a week. We're supposed to get up to 60 today so it'll be nice for trick-or-treating tonight for the kids.

False Alarm's not fixed. They're going to try some more stuff, backtracking what the other dealership did.........sigh.

Car news....maybe

So I just got a call from the dealership. They're pretty sure they've got it fixed. Long story short, they figured out it's a "feedback" type noise (exactly what my husband had been telling Hyundai for how long?) Oh sorry, I digress: so they disconnect the alternator and later remove the two right front speakers. After 2 hours they test it - no noise. So they put the speakers back and 2 hours later - still no noise. SO, the guy will test it again in the morning and let me know for sure but it had been doing it after just 2 hours outside today at the dealership so all signs point to YIPPEEE! I told the service guy if they had fixed it I would sing their praises from here to timbuktoo! (And yes I'm sure I spelled that wrong.) He said he called the service line and the printout we had given him of the history (3 pages long) was nearly word-for-word what Hyundai had on file, he was AMAZED that no one had figured this out before......he's not the only one!!!!!!!!

Daddy Picture

Yay!! A Daddy picture! This was when he toured the jobsite up in Canada - he looks so "official" doesn't he!

The Saga Continues....

I took my car in to a new dealership near us today for an oil change. B/c it's a brand-new dealership the service guys were bored out of their skin, I was the only car there!! They asked if there was anything else on the car they needed to look I told them about the messed up sound system that screeches in cold weather. They were VERY nice, VERY helpful and said they had a guy there who was Platinum level mechanic that last week fixed a car from Michigan that no one had been able to figure out what was wrong in less than 2 hours. I ran down the list of things that had been done and he wants a crack at it. So, Sunday we'll take it in and let them have a couple of days to play --- the screeching is getting worse and more frequent and it's still under warranty so we'll see what happens. I'm not holding my breath but it would be SO nice to get it fixed! Updates to follow......

It's Official...

Someone tell Dad he got out just in time, I officially reside in the frozen north. Why am I suddenly realizing this you ask? BECAUSE WE HAVE SNOW PREDICTED FOR TONITE!!!!!! Now obviously it will melt as the high for tomorrow is about 47 but still. It's not even Halloween yet!!!!

Company pictures....

So, here are some pictures that I took while my parents were here visiting. The surrounding towns are having a competition with scarecrows and I thot this one was really good! It's just down the road.

This is a "fuzzy" tree that is across the street - we have decided this is what they make "blankie" out of Katie - so when your's wears out we'll have to get you a "blankie tree"!

I think this was the most beautiful tree we saw while my parents were here - it was in the Ft Niagara park and it was standing all alone, showing off its' finery - isn't it amazing!!!!!!

Here's Daddy standing down by the edge of Lake Ontario. It was SOOOOOOO cold near the lake but the weather wasn't too bad the rest of the time - highs in the middle 50's which was nice considering how much walking we did.

Not only do I keep forgetting my camera so I have no pics to post yet of mom/dad's visit --- but a new facewash I bought made my FACE BREAK OUT!!!!!!!! So now I'm having to take benadryl and such and make myself sleepy while I'm trying to host. Yeesh! I'm going to go ask for my money back on that facewash!

Cleaning day

So today is Canadian Thanksgiving, we're doing shopping for warm winter clothes for wearing on the jobsite this afternoon. I'm trying to get everything picked up so I can clean tomorrow before my mom AND DAD come visit. (I know, shockingly enough I think I guilted him into a visit. Of course he's quite sure he'll get stuck in Chicago since they're flying on standby and he'll never end up making it here. - That's my dad, the optimist!) :-) It's been warmer the last few days - high 70's which is a nice warm-up before winter comes. My face is back to normal - woohoo! I have no intentions of trying that ham again for quite awhile. Job interview on Wed. that I'm quite apathetic about. If they offer it - fine, if not - no worries.

How odd...

Wednesday night is a lonely time I have decided. (See this is what happens when I have a horrible migraine and I take my medicine to make it better.) I want to call someone but Mom's asleep since she's worked extra this week, sister's watching her husband be Elvis at church (don't ask), husband's at work, Moni's boyfriend is meeting her family tonite....and poor Brenda already kept me occupied for awhile this evening. I turned down a "girls night" with some other wives up here b/c of my mouth - which was a good decision considering my migraine but now I'm sappy with no one to babble to. Dear me, I am very pathetic. However, on a high note my mouth is already starting to clear up a bit - mouth is still very sore and blistered but less swollen and improvement in the pain/burning - yippee.

To take a page from my sister....

Dear cold sores - if that is really what you are. Why on earth did you have to appear with such a vengeance? I know I want to lose weight but not thru not eating! I am fond of speaking as well which your blisters seem determined to make very painful. I am tired of you already and you've only been here 2 days. Go away - quickly!!
Painfully yours,

Fall is defintely here!

It's in the 40's at night and 55-60 during the day for the high's - I'm so excited to be in long sleeves again! I've been going to the gym for a month and actually got to run yesterday. Considering the asthma and messed-up lungs I have I'm extremely tickled with this new progress. My husband has CPR training all day tomorrow so I think I'm going to bake. The weather is perfect for it and I have a recipie for molasses bread that mom sent me I'd like to try. I'm starting to think about christmas gifts for everyone - I may come down early to do some shopping, otherwise all anyone is getting is small gifts or gift cards!! :-)
Have a great weekend!
