oh Canada...

It's almost Canada Day! I know it's officially summer when Canada Day arrives! I will be selling cotton candy in Kentville as a fundraiser to help take my many books and school supplies to Kenya with me in August so wish me luck that I have a lot of sugar fiends at the event and I sell lots and lots to help offset my costs! (That rhymes!) I'm also doing some other fundraising efforts a book sale on July 9th at the Bridgewater Baptist church and a comedy show that I'm selling tickets for so horrah!

Kenya!

It's official! I'm going to Kenya! Our Thailand trip fell through is was sad but worked out in the in because my friend Brian will be available to take me to a community for donate supplies and volunteer there at the school which is very exciting! I would love to take something like a portables with me to be able to keep in contact with my friends and family (TROY!) but I don't see that happening. I have a few fundraising efforts in place to try and raise some $$$ to pay to bring lots (700 plus) with me which is a bit tricky to do since they are so heavy! We'll see!

hard at work!


Troy and I have been very busy on the weekends working on the house! In this picture Troy is yes, taking down a wall. We've taken down a few walls so far, taken out the chimney, scrapped glue off floors... very busy. Once we get the electrical redone we are going to be set to start painting and moving things in which is really exciting! I hope within a few weeks!

Good night

Wednesdays are always long days at work... that's when I come home... soak my feet in bath sea salt, pop in a documentry and 'try' to relax. It's hard when there is some much I've been thinking about lately. I'm taking Friday off to go down and work on the house! So excited but there is just so much to do so it's a bit overwhelming at the same time. I have a lot of stuff going on in my personal and work life lately. Fun, but not at the same time. I was nervous about my day today but it went a lot better than I thought. Now I'm going to go to bed soon and pass out! Busy day again tomorrow.
