Happy Vacation

Monday, I drove up to Ohio to go to a client site to demonstrate a new product that we have.  The testing went reasonably well.  Yippee!!!  From here, I am heading up to Canada to spend a week with my family. 

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my American friends.

Random points

Why does a cockroach get interested in hanging out in a car?  Last week sometime, I saw a cockroach running around the instrumentation on my dash.  I was so surprised that he dashed off before I could form a cohesive thought.  Great!  On Saturday, I got into my car after the mechanic was done with the car and there it was sitting as pretty as you please next to the rolled down window.  I flicked it out the window.  Good riddance!

As I was driving into the gym parking lot, I saw two deer walking along the edge of the woods with not a care in the world.

This morning, a squirrel was running across the lawn with an oak leaf in its mouth.  He then found a handy spot to start digging.  Is he really doing to bury the entire leaf or did it have some acorns attached that he wanted?

Last night, Piero wanted to know what I wanted for Christmas.  I looked to Eduardo.  He commented how incredibly hard it was to buy for me because I want nothing.  He asked me again.  I pondered that question some more.  He then looked at me with a big smile on his face and said, " I know what you want.  You want peace and quiet."  He nailed that one on the head!  I grabbed him and gave him a big hug and laughed with him.

PS. Sorry I haven’t been writing. I haven’t been in the mood much.

Happy Halloween

Piero went out as a dinosaur and Kylie went out as a princess.  We have some really good pictures of Piero pretending to eat different things – like his Papa.  We headed out to the neighbourhood and discovered almost no one was giving out candy.  Wow! So we ended up going back into my old neighbourhood again this year.  It took us an hour to get through 3 courts and the kids ended up with a big bucket of candy.  Yes they could have went longer and yes the kids probably would have wanted more candy but we put an end to it at 8:15 without too many complaints.

After the kids and I went to bed, Eduardo and I watched "The Machinist".  I thought it was going to be a scarier movie than it was.  It was very interesting but definitely a thinking kind of movie. 

Now the kids are trying to get as much candy as possible out of us!
