Tomorrow we're off to Edmonton for a couple days.
Have a bunch of things to do, and hopefully we can get to half of them.
One of the things I want to do is to stop by at least one of the Scrapbook stores.I've been buying online for so long now that I've forgotten the thrill of seeing new things in real, touching them and feeling the weight before handing off the VISA.

I promised myself a few months back that I'm going to be careful about where I spend my scrappy $$$, and that I will make a bigger effort to go to real brick and mortar stores for the majority of my purchases.

The kids need haircuts too before school starts next week, so I hope to take care of that, and perhaps cuts for Osh and I if we can.

We have something important going on on Friday morning which meant us hiring a babysitter through an agency we used once a few years ago. The kids are none too thrilled to have to be with a babysitter but I was told we wouldn't need more than 2 hours (probably less), so I assured them we'll be back before they even start missing us.

Cai is the most nervous.Every time I bring it up he just shakes his head and says "No, I wanna come you Mom".
That kinda kills me.

Hey Laci....

As a Mom, separation from our children when they are young is never easy. Especially when there is no family around - I can relate totally to this. Children are precious and we want to shelter and protect them always.

You know how I feel on this:) So I won't rehash.. one day at a time my dear friend.

Give Cai something of yours before you leave on Friday. Assure him you will be back. Then ask him to hang onto it for you until you return. :)

Can't wait to hear about your scrapbook shop EXTRAVAGANZA!!! Get your skills sharpened up.. cause we'll be dragging Ki out with us!:)

Hope all is well with you Laci! Your wee ones will be fine I agree with Patti's comment about leaving something of yours with Cai for save keeping, at least he'll feel he's doing something important for you, kind of like a secret mission for him maybe!!! Take care and please call next time you come to Cold Lake, I would so love to finally meet you!!!
