Long time

It's been a long time since I last posted. There are 2 reasons for my absence:

1. Working on the house all summer and

2. Spotty internet due to road construction and lack of power...

We are close to finishing the house now and moving in hopefully by the end of October.... there are still septic mound and power to be done, the gas line was connected last Sunday and the road is almost completed. Few more gravel trucks and couple approaches and we'll be done. Inside the house we are still finishing flooring and baseboards. The kitchen is in, we already had a fire in our new wood fireplace and the bathrooms need tiles... then we'll be done.. No one is helping us anymore. Mike got a new job in the city and when he comes home on the weekends he wants to spend time with his family. Jonas like usual is promising to help and then gets drunk and hangover, sleeps in till 10 am and takes off. I should know better than to believe anything he says, but when he volunteers the help, I always get sucked in and then disappointed. I feel like doing the same thing to him. Not show up to babysit when they're relying on me.... I've been contemplating taking off to BC and not coming home for a while, but so far I couldn't do it.... why do I have to be so damn responsible???   I’m getting so frustrated that as soon as we are in our new home I’ll tell them to find someone else to take care of their kids. 

Last weekend we went out to a fundraising event for a Community Center Expansion in Edson.  It was much bigger than I expected and a lot of fun.  The bumpkin wedding dress up theme made it very interesting. There was a silent auction, raffle tickets, gifts and prizes donated by local businesses and a comedian to entertain for the evening.  Marc and I danced a lot and stayed till after midnight.   Below are some pictures from that evening...
