Last day of school!!

Last day of school for the kids. What a way to end the school. Pouring down rain, and it's supposed to last a couple of days. What is really bothering is we haven't had a chance to go to the beach yet to have a picnic or swimming.

RAIN, RAIN, GO AWAY
COME BACK IN A FEW WEEKS

I hope it is nice for Canada Day. No plans yet.
Thinking about going to the Open Air Market, the market is within walking distance, so if it's nice, i think I will take the kids there for the day. Does anyone have any plans for Canada Day?

Again still here

I have been sick the last couple of days that is why i haven't been blogging. Everyone around got a cold and I was the last one to get it. I am finally get over it.

Jasmine has her Gr.7 leaving ceremony tomorrow and it looks like i will be better for that. My cold only seems to last a couple of days. But, when i get sick i get the works. The worst thing about being sick is I can't sleep. I keep waking up like every hour. It gets so frustating not being able to sleep when sick.

What does your birthdate mean?

Your Birthdate: January 19

You are resilient, and no doubt your resilience has already been tested.
You've had some difficult experiences in your life, but you are wise from them.
Having had to grow up quickly, you tend to discount the advice of others.
You tend to be a loner, having learned that the only person you can depend on is yourself.

Your strength: Well developed stability and confidence

Your weakness: Suspicion of others

Your power color: Eggplant

Your power symbol: Spade

Your power month: October

Unbelievable!!, but true!!!

Subject: hand sanitizer




Those of you with small grandchildren/children....etc please take the time to read this. Such an innocent thing and so dangerous.



http://www.snopes.com/medical/toxins/sanitizer.asp



Ok. I don't know where to begin because the last 2 days of my life have been such a blur. Yesterday, My youngest daughter Halle who is 4, was rushed to the emergency room by her father for being severely lethargic and incoherent. He was called to her school by the school secretary for being "very VERY sick." He told me that when he arrived that Halle was barely sitting in the chair. She couldn't hold her own head up and when he looked into her eyes, she couldn't focus them. He immediately called me after he scooped her up and rushed her to the ER.

When we got there, they ran blood test after blood test and did x-rays, every test imaginable. Her white blood cell count was normal, nothing was out of the ordinary. The ER doctor told us that he had done everything that he could do so he was sending her to Saint Francis for further test. Right when we were leaving in the ambulance, her teacher had come to the ER and after questioning Halle's classmates, we found out that she had licked hand sanitizer off her hand. Hand sanitizer, of all things. But it makes sense.

These days they have all kinds of different scents and when you a curious child, they are going to put all kinds of things in their mouths. When we arrived at Saint Francis, we told the ER doctor there to check her blood alcohol level, which, yes we did get weird looks from it but they did it. The results were her blood alcohol level was 85% and this was 6 hours after we first took her. There's no telling what it would have been if we would have tested it at the first ER. Since then, her school and a few surrounding schools have taken this out of the classrooms of all the lower grade classes but what's to stop middle and high schoolers too? After doing research off the internet, we have found out that it only takes 3 squirts of the stuff to be fatal in a toddler. For her blood alcohol level to be so high was to compare someone her size to drinking something 120 proof. So please PLEASE don't disregard this because I don't ever want anyone to go thru what my family and I have gone thru. Today was a little better but not much.

Please send this to everyone you know that has children or are having children. It doesn't matter what age. I just want people to know the dangers of this.

Thank you,

Lacey Butler and family

Kim Owen ;-)

Still here!!

I am just wanted to let everyone who reads my blog that I am still here. There was nothing happening over the weekend worth blogging about. I am working on my blankie for my niece and I will post either later on today or tomorrow. I am not very good at knitting so it is taking me quite a while, but the good news is I am on my fourth square. So once I get my fourth one on my blankie I will post a picture.

Is it just me...

So I was looking at my comments from a post I did awhile ago and i found this comment
Anonymous said...
too bad ya have to live in a trailer - looks pretty small and rundown

Is it just me or was this comment offensive. I wish if someone was going to leave an anon comment to live a name. By the way, if the anon person reads my blog again the trailer you saw in the picture was not the trailer I live in. That's all I have to say about that for that for now. What do you think about that comment. Rude or not rude?

P.S. if you are curious what post it came from. It was the day I made muffins and cookies

Funny Jokes...

i have nothing against blondes, but this joke is funny in my opinion

Two blondes came into a bar, sat down, and ordered drinks. They were making merry in a serious way and it was obvious to the bartender that they were celebrating something big. His curiosity finally got the better of him and he says " I hate to be nosy, but it's obvious that you two are celebrating something big. What's the occasion" One blonde replies "Well, we are just sooo proud of ourselves, because we just finished - just the two of us alone - a 50 piece jigsaw puzzle in only 3 days." Confused, the bartender says "So?", to which the other blonde says "Well, on the box it says 3 - 5 years"

Candace's Orientation Day

yesterday Candace had her Kindergarten orientation. She did good. Wasn't able to get any pictures of her day. The teachers took the class around on a tour of the school. I thought Candace would want to come to me, but she didn't. She came back and was so happy. While on the tour, i guess the teacher say a song, and Candace told me the song. They sang "itsy bitsy spider. I can tell that Candace is excited to start school. I will be of course be getting pictures of Candaces first day of school. I have no idea what I will be during with my time when she is at school. I wish that kids can stay young forever, then we(parents) wouldn't have to go through all these emotions.

Pictures from Yesterday....








That was my day yesterday. It poured as you can see from the pictures. I baked banana muffins and chocolate chip cookies. The muffins turned out quite big. I like baking when the baking powder is brand new because it makes the muffins turn out good. We didn't do anything else since it was pouring out. Today there is a break in the rain. I hope it doesn't rain this Sunday because it is Justin's birthday. He is turning 11.

Water Fun(AGAIN)

The kids had fun playing in the pool and I decided to take some more pictures. The reason you don't see Jasmine in any of the pictures is because she went camping with her Girl Guides group. She is in Pathfinders. Pathfinders is highest group in Girl Guides.
Look how well Candace is balancing. Love it!!

I also like this one too..

So, beach season is coming quickly upon us, so I decided time for a beach scene blog skin! I love going to the beach.

I am thinking about putting my blog to private. I don't know yet. It all depends on how many people e-mail me to want to keep reading my blog. It's just a thought. If you want to keep reading my blog leave a comment. If I don't get that many i will stick to keeping my blog open
