5 Little Things:

1. It's been 3 weeks since we last saw our cat, Nala. We think she may have gone into the woods to die :( She's an old lady and her days were numbered. Still wish I had more time with her though. I love that cat.

2. It's baseball night tonight. Firefighters vs. the kids. Hmm...who shall I root for? The kids or my hubby? lol

3. I was tricked. Last night we had supper at my parents' and my dad made a delicious stew. He neglected to tell us that he used a few different types of meat. One of those just happened to be black bear!!! OMG! Ewww! I feel so gross now. BTW, not only was it bear meat, but it was also road kill!!! Crazy guy! He and his friends witnessed a jeep hitting a 400 lb black bear and the OPP told them they could keep the bear meat. EWWWWWWWW! BLEECHHH! You can understand how ill I felt, esp after being vegetarian for 7 years!!!

4. Been feeling super sick again. My tummy aches and my head aches. To cheer me up, my hubby's been making the bed every morning. Too cute. I don't even complain if the quilt is a bit lop-sided or the pillows not perfectly in place. I think he's so cute.

5. This weekend my hubby and I are taking the kids to the Prov Fair. Providence Bay is having their annual agricultural fair. They got ag stuff like pony rides and horse pulls, but they've also got carnival type rides and food. Should be fun.

2 more things: HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little brother, PJ! He turned 20 today. You're no longer a teenager, Peejay!

...AND...not all the firefighters were able to play ball tonight, so I ended up having to play! I got home 3 times, but got out twice because we (the adults) weren't allowed to take a lead off the bases to steal. No fair! lol

Oh my gosh, Chrissy! Your dad served you bear without even telling you? How mean! On the flip side, my husband tells me depending on how it's cooked, bear can taste really good. He tried bear at a restaurant once. Anyway, I can imagine how you felt since I know your opinion on eating animals.
