...5 months later

well that took a while, didn't it?

We really had a great Summer and Fall this year. We have been living in Edmonton for just over a year, and I think we've all finally adjusted to city living. We spent most of our summer exploring the ravine that runs behind our home...long walking and biking trails, and a bit of wildlife.

We're fortunate to have this greenery so close to us, and we've been taking full advantage of it. Lately I've taken up "running", and I say it like that..."running" just because what I'm actually doing may be debatable. I like to think it's running, but it's more a combination of walking, a slight jog, heavy panting, trying to find my pulse ('cause that's what I see real runners do at times), and then more of the same all over again.
I swear the other day, a couple of French Bulldogs stopped on the side of the trail and started laughing at me!

Speaking of dogs, we've been thinking of getting one. Negotiations over a family per have been ongoing for the past 3-5 years. I've been very resistant because...well...four kids, you do the math, okay?
Now that I've got three kids in school full-time and Eilam (the youngest) in Playschool 2 hours a day, 4 days a week, I'm starting to see the end of the tunnel. So we've recently re-visited the family dog talk.
We've met with an awsome breeder, and we're presently negotiating the important stuff (like who's gonna pick up the poop).
I'll keep you updated on that...

I'll stop now, 'cause I know you, dear reader, may need time to recover from the shock of reading a new post on here. But I'll be back...soon...ish...sorta...
Have a wonderful week.

P.S I'll be prepping for my upcoming 40th birthday (and by prepping I mean reminding everyone I know)
So you're going to want to mark that down in your calender, 30 November ;)
