Friday Night

(Louise) Its finally Friday!!!! We are sitting here and we just finished these great apples....They we called "Grapple" and they really smelled nice and tasted like grapes. Strange...apparently they soak them in grape juice which I don't really understand how they get the taste to be so strong. (Sunshine) I think that they would be very well suited for potpourri and you could use them to cook something if you are selling your home it would add a wonderful scent. Where is Cathy tonight? That's what I want to know. I will call her and she will call me back 2-3 weeks later. I have been talking Cathy's husband more then Cathy for the last little while. (Carolin)I don't know if the grapples would work in a pie or not. Also at $5.99 for 4 grapples they are also a bit pricey.
Now we are just talking about our summers and what we will do.
I've started my new job and I'm so so tired.......the extra hours are just tiring me out!! Unfortunately my cousin past away this week, she had cancer and she fought right to the end. The funeral is going to be this Saturday, but my oldest daughter has a soccer tournament this weekend so I'm not sure if I'm going to go. I don't want to take my smaller kids but its far away....So I don't know what I'm going to do. I am so sorry to hear about that. Its never easy to loose a loved one.

This week has been very busy at work and at home and with family. We had a mass for my mom yesterday it has been 10 years since she died. It was a really hard night there were a lot of emotions and a lot of sadness not to mention 3 very moody teenagers. My dad was really sad and he seemed a little bit disoriented but he tries really hard to hide it. We met for dinner first as we didn't have a chance to meet on the weekend because one of my sisters was in Montreal. My dad didn't end up coming as he didn't feel right about it but the rest of us met. It was a real flop as everyone was upset and no one really had a good time. Its too bad because I think that my mom would have liked for us to be together and enjoying each others company but that isn't always how things work out. You were on my mind all Mother's Day weekend. Just don't think Mother's day will ever be the same for any of us.

Things are things, I as well am tired. I am getting ready for my trip to Huntsville for the G8 Summit. I am hoping I can blog while up there but at this point I am not sure how tight the security will be. Anyway time for us to go as the Teenager has a new boyfriend and they are at home with the little one.


  1. I'm sorry I missed being with all of you. Friends of ours took us to the "Coleman" warehouse sale. We stood in line for 3 1/2 hours. When we finally got inside there was a lineup to cash out. By the time we got home in was 8pm and the ladies were going home. We did get some good deals. We bought a -18 C sleeping bag for the youngest for winter camping and a cooler for $10.00. There was not as much of a selection as there has been in years past so we do not think we will go next year.
    'Grapples'? Where did you find them? I have never heard of them.
    Sunshine, I cannot think of anything else but you and your family on the days leading up to and just after Mother's Day. Carolin is quite correct when she says that Mother's Day will never be the same for any of us.

  2. Happy Belated Mothers Day to my sucias. Thanks for thinking of me, it means the world.
