Congrats to Storm!!!  That's so exciting :D

Sounds like there's a lot still on your plate.  And I think you totally should make sure you focus on you next year.

Uni is going brilliantly.  I submitted my first piece of writing to my advisors (I have 2 advisors.  I love them.  They're wonderful.) on Monday last.  Had a meeting with them on Thursday, so they gave me feedback.  I'd been worried about it because I submitted it with very little proofreading (ie - none) and had written it in about 5 hours.  Yeah, I was expecting to be told it was terrible.  But they said it was great, though I needed to be more careful in my proofreading.  Then I said, "Yeah, I didn't proof read that at all."  (I had been REALLY sick over the week leading up.  Had a double sinus infection and a kidney infection.  So I was doing well to get something IN to them.)  They were even MORE impressed.  My next step is to expand the paper I wrote, and fix a couple bits I didn't fully address this time.  So, hooray!!!

Going to the US for Christmas.  I miss my nephews.  So excited to see them.  My older nephew, Ethan, keeps asking when Auntie is coming home.  And then he asks when he's going to go visit Auntie.  Oh, kid, you break my heart!!!

Hi Val!  I've missed you.  You looked like you had quite an awesome adventure, though.  Loving having you back!  {{{hugs}}}

Thanks, Val, for the lovely comments! Big hugs!

Thank you for stopping by and leaving lovely comments, Val.  This happened so long ago I really can't remember what he ordered but he tended to stick with his favourites in those days.  My Grandson was just as unadventurous then.  It was usually burger and chips for him.  I guess I could have told the story from Rob's point of view but he always took the longest to decide.  We used to threaten to decide for him which usually did the trick!

Thank you, Val, for your comments on 179.  Much appreciated.  Have added note that the story is my Grandson's to avoid misunderstanding.  Btw, we loved taking the family on vacation - it was much more exciting with the youngsters.

Thank you Val for the comments on my fishing page.  We fish all for sport and being outdoors. We catch and release.  Most of the places we go have been over fished so we try to do our part and conserve so other generations will enjoy it too.

Thanks, Val, for your encouraging comments.  We love birds, as you will probably know from facebook.  These were really cute and we were stuck because they were on the car and we wanted to go out!!!
