The past few days have been absolute chaos! LOL!

1. I helped Hubby vaccinate cattle. We did 43 head but still have 40 something more to vaccinate. I'm going to ask to be excused from helping him dehorn the calves! I can't stand the sight of blood. I know that it's imperative that the cattle not have horns because they can hurt themselves, other cattle or us, but I still can't watch. Vaccinations are okay and I can handle that.

2. We attended Toad and Pook's Christmas Concert at their school. Both girls performed very well and the concert was very entertaining. The junior kindergarten kids were so adorable! The girls were so happy to see their fan club in the audience. Both their grandmas were there, along with a handful of aunts, uncles, cousins, and my mom and brother. The girls just love it when PJ's home for the holidays. Everyone loves it when PJ's home for the holidays!

3. We went out for my birthday. Just a little get together at the Island Pub for some pub grub, conversation, good laughs, and the hockey game. Sorry if I offend some people, but the Leafs suck!!! (Can you tell I'm not a Toronto Maple Leafs fan?? I'd get shot for saying that, living in Ontario! Hey, I'm from Montreal and even if the Canadiens don't always play a good game, I'll always be a Habs fan).

4. We spent the day in Espanola yesterday, doing all our last minute shopping. Poor hubby was stuck with my mom and me. Now he knows why my dad never comes with us! We were gone from 9AM to 6PM, doing nuthin' but shoppin'...we did take a lunch break though! I am happy to say that all the presents have been taken care of and wrapped!

5. I stayed up until 3 AM helping my little brother with a university paper. Luckily it was only a 30 page paper he had to write! We poured over books and articles, doing research. be a student again (and to wait until the last minute to write a paper!! Sound familiar?).

6. Tomorrow we pick up the students. Changes in plans are always fun. They'll be studying English here and living with us. We went from just having canine and feline babies to having two human children to care for. They'll be here for a few months. At least my new life keeps me on my toes! There certainly leaves no room for boredom! Always something crazy and exciting going on here! LOL

lol! Sounds liek your life is just as busy as it was in Toronto, but only a different kind of busy! No doubt you can't get bored onthe island! I've been there, remember! And there's always lots to do. For tourists theres lots to do, but for you even more now! Teaching, helping J with the farm, helping your parents, youre a busy girl!

Great that you got all your shopping done. I still have a few last minute things to get for stocking stuffers. I'll probably pop on over to Shoppers Drugmart, they seem to always have stuff I need!

Holy Shit, Christine! You are a true Renaissance Woman. All I can say is it MUST be TRUE LOVE forever if you're vaccinating cattle. WOW. You are an amazing girl! Happy Holidays!

LOL! Heidi, I was actually filling up the syringes and getting all the stuff ready, as well as documenting the process. I couldn't bear to ever vaccinate those little calves (uhh...they now weigh like 600 lbs)! But, I know they need to be healthy and vaccines help ward off bugs. Poor hubby did most of the work. I was the little assistant! LOL
