Another day, another dentist bill.

Well.. I will be going again to the dentist today. This time they are going to be filling my other cavites that I have. I am also going to tell them to take the crown and stick it in thier butt. I think I will just stay with the filling because I simply can't afford the crown.

It's a Girl!!

Currently weighing in at about 15 oz.. almost a full pound!! Is our daughter!!

Her legs were closed but from what the ultrasound lady could see and what we could see.. we all came upon the agreement that it was a girl because the legs were not actually crossed. From her experience, she sounded pretty positive, and she mentioned that she would go with the pink paint for the room. She also scanned that area pretty closely

This one was pretty cool too because we had the option to see the baby in "3D" as well .. and that is almost freaky how cool it was. The pictures that you see here don't do it justice from what we actually did see.

Call me weird, but it looks like it is more femine to me anyway. Leanne and I agree that it has higher cheekbones.

I love paint

Another weekend has come and gone very fast. Quick update of activities.

Friday Night - Col and Meg came over for visits and Meg kicked our ass in "Scene It"
Saturday - Went for breakfast with Wendy and Bill to Smitty's. In the afternoon Wendy watched Harley so we can continue work on the house. Leanne and I got the hallway somewhat finished in the painting process of the walls.. Yay!! It feels good to finally get some more work done in the house. We also ripped out all of the shitty looking paneling in the back entrance. Then in the evening we all went to Home Depot to get some more stuff and then decided to go to Kelsey's since we were there. We made it easy for the waiter because we all ordered the same thing. Balsamic Chicken. mmmmmmmmm.
Sunday - Leanne went to work as I slaved over a hot stove all day and roasted chickens for supper. Bill and Wendy also came over for that. We planned it together a week ago as a deal since Wendy agreed to watch Harley as we work on the house... and they were still a hour and a half late!!

Sprechen Sie deutsch? Ich nicht!

Es wird eine Weile gewesen, da ich ein email auf Deutsch tat. So dachte ich heute würde sein ein guter Tag zum so Tun. Colin und Meg.e Ohm kommen für einen Besuch heute abend vorbei. Leanne und ich werden recht über es wirklich aufgeregt. An wir haben nicht sie seit "Bier den Strand" und nicht wirklich überhaupt vorher dieses gleichmäßige gesehen. Zu bleiben ist gut, in Verbindung mit den, die Sie sich ungefähr interessieren, selbst wenn es einmal in einem blauen Mond ist.

Es ist eine Schande, daß es scheint, daß das in der Gesellschaft heutzutage jeder in ihren eigenen Leben zu beschäftigt ist, in Verbindung mit anderen zu bleiben. Ich möchte versuchen, den zu ändern selbst. Weil in der Wirklichkeit, es nicht die Überstunden ist, arbeiten Sie oder das ganzes Geld, daß Sie an die die meisten sich erinnern. Es ist die Momente, die Sie mit Freunden und Familie haben, die Sie hüten. Die ist die Weise, die ich leben möchte. Ich werde nicht 3 Jobs bearbeiten, Geld gerade zu verdienen. Ich würde eher arm sein und die Liebe meiner Freunde zum Halten ich zu gehen haben. An starke Verhältnisse ist, wo sie ist. Amperestunde. aber erhalten mich nicht falsch. Ich werde nicht mich beschweren, wenn ich den Lottery irgendein gewann.

Es ist lustig. Ich reagierte auf meine Schwester Maria auf Deutsch außerdem heute über E-mail. Ich denke, daß sie ihre Nüsse fuhr. Ich mußte sie someway zurückbekommen. Es ist schmerzlich für mich, einige ihrer E-mails zu lesen. Sie verwendet die ganze diese von und von Abbildung, die ich frei gekommen mit einigen hotmailkonten schätze. Einschließlich der Tonnen jener glücklichen Gesichter. Und es ist Schmerz zum Schreiben zurück zu ihr, weil was auch immer das sonderbare Format, daß es innen ist, ich die E-mail zum normalen Text anders ändern müssen es, Scheiße in einen Kasten schreiben Sie. Es ist ziemlich ärgerlich. Amperestunde. aber ich ranting jetzt. Sie nicht wirklich interessieren sich, um das zu wissen.

Ich wundere mich, was das Wochenende holt. Wendy wird babysit Harland morgen, also sind wir frei den, Hallway in unserem Haus zu malen zu beginnen. Es gibt soviel Arbeit, daß ich zum Haus tun möchte und unsere Zeit weg von unseren Fingern gleitet. Bevor wir es kennen, werden wir ein anderes Kind haben!! Das wird Sinnesschlag so sein. Bevor das neue Kind kommt, sind diese die Ziele, die wir versuchen, diesen Fall zu erzielen:

1. Verschieben Sie das Material vom Extraraum unten auf Wäscherei-/Arbeitsbereich
2. Verschieben Sie das Material vom Nähenraum oben unten auf neuen Nähenraum
3. Malen Sie den Hallway
4. Setzen Sie die Kücheschranktüren an.
5. Zerreißen Sie aus Carpeting u. Fliesen vom alten Nähenraum, von Hallway und von rückseitigem Eingang
6. Malen Sie neuen Raum Harley.
7. Bringen Sie Laminat in Hallway und neuer Raum für Harley an.
8. Verschieben Sie Harley auf neuen Raum.
9. Zerreißen Sie aus dem Mit Teppich auslegen von altem Raum
10. Harley. Bringen neuer Babyraum
11. der Farbe Laminat in Babyraum
12 an. Wenn Zeiterlaubnis. unser Schlafzimmer außerdem tut.

Scheiße. Mann, der ist eine Menge Material zu tun. Ich schätze, daß wir sehen, was geschieht. Wir versuchen unser bestes. Wir lassen definitiv unsere Arbeit für uns ausschneiden.

Root Canal pt.3

A little while ago I received an estimate of how much my root canal with the crowning will cost. I nearly crapped my pants. The total came to 1408.50. (That is not even including the lab fees yet) My dental plan covers 100% of most of it .. but only 50% for the crowning and posting. Which means it will still cost me 400 dollars. HAHAHAHA!! I don't have 400 dollars. The dentist is sure going to be sad when I tell them: "Well thanks for your care and attention.. but I am not going to be getting a crown done. Just fill the hole with cement thank-you. Sorry . .I guess you are now not going to get that 27" TV for your bathroom now."

Man .. I should have been a dentist. That's where the money is.

So .. what happened over the last weekend..

Last Friday night - Well Leanne and I have now joined the cell phone club as well. We wanted to get one since she is pregnant and all .. and the more we looked into it and the prices of how much it costs and so forth.. we decided to get one each. Now we have the ability of unlimited calling between each other as well, which is a nice thing. It has already come in handy. Comfort is a small price to pay. And of course we were like 2 little school kids that evening. We talked on the cells to each other for 45 mins just so we can wear out batteries out to give it a full charge that evening.

Saturday - Went out for breakfast with Mom, Maria, Bonnie, Bill, Wendy (with Leanne and Harley of course) to the usual place .. a big family outing!! .. Bill and Wendy invited us to go out and see Valiant that evening. It was the 5 of us to go (Bill, Wendy, Maria, Leanne and myself) but at last min Leanne and Maria decided to go see Skeleton Key (not the band) instead. It was the first time in history where Leanne and I went out together to a movie .. and didn't see a movie together. Weird huh? I enjoyed Valiant alot. I recommend it to all. Afterwards, Bill, Wendy and I participated in the "Oral Cup" Table Hockey Tournament. Bill still has not given me that blow-job.

Sunday - Went out to the farm and had quite a good time as usual. The day consisted of taking Harley out on the quad when I first got out there, then we came in and I crashed slept for about a half hour before lunch while Harley played with the boys. Then we had lasagna for lunch, pumpkin pie for dessert .. mmmmmmmm...Afterwards I went out with Dad and Jason to the field as the prepped the machinery for harvest, combined a bit and then went to another farm with them to test how ready the wheat was. (could have been durum. not sure.. not that wise to that shit.) When we came back, Jason and Dad continued combining while Leanne, Lori and I took the boys to the Truax park for ice cream. I of course had pistachio nut. .. Harley wore chocolate peanut butter. When we got back from there, Leanne and Lori went to go pick up a cow that was butchered as I stayed back and took Harley for another quad ride and messed aboot with the cows and horses. I wish they still had chickens. I miss them. Leanne and Lori came back with the meat. We devided it up between the 3 families and had dinner. Fried Chicken and mashed potatoes.. and those yummy marshmallow things for dessert. Leanne and I came home with quite an amount of meat. I was first worried that we weren't going to get it all in the freezer. But we did. Now I got ground beef coming out of my ass!!

Oh yeah!! - I didn't mention that I had a surprise visit last week as well!!! Glenn, my old value village work mate came by for a surprise visit last Thursday night. Hell I haven't seen that bastard for 7+ years!! .. it was a good visit. He is staying in Grenfell and has been there for the past month or so taking care of his dad. Hell if he would have gotten in touch with me just a little earlier, he could have came to BATB and reminisced with all of us! .. Hopefully I can get some of my comrades back together and see him again in the next week or so.

Well that was the last week in a nutshell.

My computer is screwed. I turn it on and it turns off within 5 sec. I couldn't even get into the BIOS to check anything. So I had Brass look at it .. and of course when I brought it to him to look at .. it worked fine. No problems. .. took it back home and .. flop.. same thing again. AARRGGH. I even disconnected everything from it to see it if was something else and nope.. shuts off. So .. I brought it back again to Brass and also had Rory and Ahmad look at it .. and finally it did the same thing. So it looks like the Power Supply is likely screwed in it. Replaced it with a more powerful and newer one. And .. it now stays on!! yay!!
.. Now I will have to do the real test and see what happens when I take it home!

lil devil

Harley seems to amaze me sometimes. Tonight he was a perfect little boy. He ate with no fuss. I didn't have to tell him no more than once for somethin. He was in good spirits all evening .. and he nearly put himself to bed around 8ish. But throughout the whole evening he just has this sinister gleam in his eye when he smiled. I wonder what he is up to.

That Kicks Axe!!

Bill and Wendy came by last night with an DQ ice cream treat!! Why did they do such a thing you ask? .. well that was because I asked them to. Leanne and I were originally thinking of going out doing that but Leanne was not feeling so shit how so we decided to stay at home. Bill gave me a gift as well. The CD release of Kick Axe's "Rock The World" I was blown away and in total awe. Why did I deserve such a fantastic gift? It is all that I have been listening to for today. It makes me wish I had the other albums on CD. All my stuff is on vinyl. Kind of hard to play records on a CD player I found out. I happened to find that out the hard way.

After work, Leanne, Harley and I went for a picnic at the RCMP sundown Ceremonies with Jackie, Trish and Izak. Harley did really good and had an awesome time. He was in awe when they set of the cannon going "Oooooo ... YAY!!!" and clapping and laughing. He did get a little crabby towards the end though, but it was understandable. He was not home all day since he was a the babysitters and probably had a fairly active day. He just had enough and wanted to go home.

I was listening the Tony and Bill's radio show tonight. They played a song for me. That was pretty cool of them. Unfortunately they didn't find the Kaiser Chiefs album as mind blowing as I did.

Difference of opinion is a beautiful thing though.

Root Canal Pt. 2

Root Canal pt.2

So I went to the dentist and had my root canal done. Boy was I out to lunch thinking that they had the majority of it done. I have now realized that I must of had my head in my ass. Today was the actual "Root" of the visit. And let me tell you .. Not Fun. My Jaw still hurts. I had to keep my mouth open for nearly 2 hours!!! aaarrrghh!! And it was just plain freaky. They were drilling and hand filing my tooth so much I thought that there wasn't going to be any tooth left!! It was just freaky. Then at the end of it they were inserting these little rubber pieces to replace the nerves I believe .. but I am not sure. They showed me the x-ray of it .. and you can see where they were along with the filling. I thought they were going to put a crown on it right away, but no .. I guess they wait for a month to make sure that everything is cool. I guess that makes sense.. You need to test run a product after repairing it .. so how would a tooth be any different!

I went home and just crashed to wake up to constant pain. Hopefully this will go away in a couple of days like they said .. but it is actually sorer then it was originally. No pain, no gain I guess.

.. and I almost forgot!! .. The dentist office woke me up with a phone call asking me that I have not set an appointment for the cleaning yet and wanted to know if I would do it tomorrow morning at 11..
.. umm .. no. Shit .. I am still suffering from this, i didn't need the possible added annoyance of bleeding gums to boot. My next apointment is on Aug 31st. The fun will then continue.

Yey for Cherry

Got a super deal at home depot for some Japanese Cherry Laminate. Now I will be able to get rid of that disgusting carpet! whoopee!!! Jack let me borrow his truck and Tony helped with his immaculate arms. He's a good man. Maria also agreed to watch Harley for the time being as well. Which was nice of her to do.

Speaking of my sister, we went to see the movie "March of the Penguins" at the Southland. Not a bad film, but I was not in the right frame of mind when I watched it. I found it actually quite depressing. Almost morbid. I think I would have enjoyed the movie alot more if I saw it at the IMAX, or at the cheap theatre, or rented it .. or actually never have watched it at all. I will likely watch it again in my future if I am flipping through channels on the TV. It's at least better then watching commercials.

My friend Gord went to India for a business trip. To my surprise he brought me back an official wrapper for the McAloo Tikki Burger. Fried breaded potato & peas patty that is flavored with a special spice mix, fresh tomato slices, onion, and veg. tomato mayonnaise between toasted buns. Mmmmmmm...fried breaded potatoes and peas!!.. whats not to love about that!! ....He said it was pretty crappy. He took like two bites and then threw the rest of it away.

it's a statement..

You know what they say about a man with a big pipe.

It is inspires me to see some peoples hobbies and interests. Hema is one of those people. I have never known anyone to be that serious about tobacco and pipe smoking. Some of his pipes are pretty cool too. I like this one. It's interesting to see which pipe he uses sometimes. I am not sure if he does it knowingly or not, but his pipe sometimes works with the clothes that he is wearing. A Total fashion statement. For example over the beach weekend when he was wearing his overalls (see keg toss pic below), he had this big ass corn cob pipe. Totally Hillbilly.. totally.

men are pigs

I went to CPR classes last Tues & Wed.

It was interesting. I was the only guy there .. so there were a couple of man bash comments. I kind of took advantage of the opportunity and acted like a male chauvinist pig. Good times. Two of the younger girls were truly offended by me. I enjoyed it immensely.

Leanne came by on the second day and the first thing one of the girls said to her was .. "Oh.. so YOU must be the wife that does all the cleaning!" .. It caught Leanne off guard because it's not really something that would normally be said to you first thing. Leanne just shrugged it off and thought that her husband was at it again. She now wished that she could of played it up a bit .. but it was too late.

My wife is awesome and the best woman ever. Realistically I would never take her for granted. She is on a very high pedestal.. and that is where she will stay.

BBQ Party

Keith invited everyone from work to come out to a BBQ at his place. It was a pretty good time. I really enjoyed his pool.. but his "in-ground" trampoline freaked me out a bit. I think some one at work here was taking pics. If I get any of the incriminating pictures .. I will definitely post them.

Leanne and I cut out at the appropriate time though. I was getting pretty boozed up .. and I get too goofy when I am boozed up. I could of had some more of those Alabama Slammers though. That's some good shit.


We took my dad out for brunch today since it was is birthday. 67th I believe. Afterwards we went to his girlfriends for one of those DQ ice cream cakes. I don't know how many times it has happened now .. but man.. I gotta stop feeding ice cream to Harley. If you have ever seen the Ice Cream Bar scene in the Spongebob Squarepants movie .. it's totally appropriate.

.. and to make it even worse .. we gave him a DQ buster bar later in the evening when we went to Tony and Cathy's for dinner. HAHAHAHA. I swear to god .. when Harley finally did crash, you'd thought be passed out. I kinda wanted to put him beside the toilet and take a pic of him for fun.

Tony sure knows how to BBQ chicken. I would call him the BBQ chicken king .. actually I just did ..

ok .. as of now .. he is the BBQ chicken king

Root Canal Pt.1

So I went to the dentist last tuesday.

They decided it would be good to put me on laughing gas (to help calm me down) since I was going to get a root canal. It was pretty cool. They had me snorting that shit for a while and then I suddenly felt heavy and light at the same time. It was pretty bizarre. When he gave me my first needle for the freezing he didn't even tell me that he was going to do it and was massaging my gums and asking me if I felt anything uncomfortable. Before I knew it he already gave me the first needle. I did feel a little pinch of the second needle, but it was nothing. I felt like saying .. ah hell .. give me some more of that gas. I enjoyed it lots and lots. That is until the he put this rubber thing around my mouth to keep from pieces of teeth flying all over into the sides of my . When they had that on .. I suddenly started to feel really hot.. and nauseous .. and memories of the dentist that I had when I was a kid started to come flying right back.. It freaked me out. I put up my hand and the doctor as fast as he could whipped the gas mask and rubber cover thing off and got me a glass of water. I needed to go to the bathroom because I didn't know whether I was going to shit or puke. I got up and started to walk down the hallway all dizzy and shit and stumbled my way to the bathroom. Whipped my pants off and sat down on the cool toilet, while I was "backwards hugging" the toilet tank. Aahhh .. that feels better .. ahh.. mmm .. cold porcelain. You never let me down. During this time the dentist rapped on the door a couple of times to makes sure I am ok. I think the first time he checked me, I probably responded more like a drunk Ukrainian on a drinking binge .. but I was better the second time.

I came out of the bathroom and I was ready to continue on. The dentist nearly refused because he didn't want me to pass out again .. and possibly have to call the paramedics on me. I was telling him .. "NO .. I am positive .. the worst it over now!! I just had some freaky flashbacks about my old dentist when I was a kid. There will be no problems whatsoever." .. So he was .. ok .. only if you are sure..

I get in the chair, take some deep breaths. and he continued on with "Root Canal - Pt.1". He drilled it all out and then let the tooth drain. Put some medication in there and then put a temporary filling on it. It was pretty decent. Actually the after math was less of a pain in the ass then when I had a tooth pulled out.. and I wish I would have saved my last one that way.. but then again. At that time .. I didn't have any dental benefits and I was just going with the cheapest route at the time.

All in all .. it was a good experience. (except for the almost fainting part) And it makes me feel more comfortable about dentists now. I had no pain at all throughout the procedure. Sweet.

good thing

It was a good thing that we did come home early.. Leanne slept until 2pm today.

Crazy shit.

It was really friggin hot out today .. so we thought of taking Harley to a movie for the first time (this is not including the times leanne took him to the Mother and baby movie days at the theatre when he was only a couple of months old. Those don't count.) We took him to see Madagascar, for the 4 o'clock afternoon show. He really enjoyed it!! It was really cute. He sat there with his popcorn munching away. Yup .. just like daddy .. only 1 out of every 20 kernels or so actually staying in his mouth. But the thing was that it wayyy cooler in the theatre. And he could have been throughing his diapers across the theatre for all I cared. It was cool .. and that is all that mattered. For a 2 year old .. he was very well behaved. There were 6 and 7 year old kids in the theatre that was not as good as him. I am proud of my boy.

Someday in my dreamy future I will own central air. But until that time .. I will survive without it. Just as long as it doesn't get as hot as texas or something stupid like that.
