Merry Christmas

It is indeed a most wonderful thing to be able to gaze at the cherub face of your child and know that this is (hopefully!) the first of many Christmases as a family.

Merry Christmas everyone. Blessings to us all.

Hubby has arrived!

A very quick update...

Hubby arrived the other day with a new stroller for us. Seems that although they had one on display here, they didn't have any in stock and even with a cross-country wide sale on that particular model, they weren't going to get any either. Nice huh? That's the kind of problem we frequently have living on the island portion of this province. How lovely. *sigh*

A funny story though; Air Canada was going to CHARGE EXTRA for hubby to bring the other one, new in its box. When he explained that he was bringing this one to his wife to replace one that their airline had broken almost 3 weeks prior, they authorized a wavier on the extra fee! No kidding. Damn lucky I wasn't there; I think I would have ripped someone a new one! Anyway, hubby made it, stroller intact and it's nice to have some relief for the night shift. Now I know what many single parents must handle in the course of a day/week/month. Tiring, that's for sure. Needless to say, I'm grateful for his help. As always.

If I don't get a chance to post again, Merry Christmas everyone. I hope 2009 has been good to you and that all your dreams come true in 2010. May we all be so blessed.

So Much for the Stroller...

The first time I use it is also the last time I use it.

The airline 'handlers' sheared off one of the front wheels on the flight home. Good grief. To give them credit, they offered to compensate me for a replacement, and I'll take them up on that. I have the paperwork to submit for a claim when I'm able to purchase a replacement for us. However, the trick is actually FINDING one that meets my needs here in my hometown. In the meantime, the airline offered me the use of a regular umbrella stroller (it's all they had to offer me). I declined, as that style doesn't meet our needs.

So I'm shopping here at home for something suitable. Nothing yet, but Toys R Us hopes to have some arrive in a shipment in the next day or two. Keep your fingers crossed, cause being sans stroller sucks.

Mind you, we've had over 40 cms of snow since we arrived here. So I doubt I'll be doing much walking outdoors with it anyway! Can you say "housebound" boys and girls? I knew you could!

Love to you all in blogland. More later!
