Does anyone other than Scott

Does anyone other than Scott read these missives? If you do, drop me a note at I just want to know who my audience is….

It’s been a while, so

Saturday, May 25th, 2002 by Ian

It’s been a while, so I’ll bring this up to date. Shelley has been in Vermillion, Alberta (WooHoo!) for the last two nights at the United Church Alberta and Northwest Conference, so I’ve been single parenting (WooHoo again!). It sounds like she’s enjoying the social stuff and the networking, but the conference itself is pretty dull. Much like my days on APEGGA council. She gets home tonight.

However, tonight is the second and last showing of the Paul and Friends Concert. First show was last night. It went very well, everybody enjoyed themselves. I forgot two PROMINENT lines in the song I was singing (If I Had a Million Dollars), but we covered pretty well and it was well received. Tonight I vow to get it right!

That’s about all I can think of right now.

MOST of the carpet went

Thursday, May 16th, 2002 by Ian

MOST of the carpet went in yesterday. They screwed up measuring the master bedroom, so the piece of carpet they brought was a foot too short. Now we have to wait 10 days for them to order more. Oh well, they moved the furnature back for us and they will move it again when they come to install next week (plus a little discount), so I don;t really feel too bad about it. I do kinda wish it was done, though…

Painting is done (Last night

Tuesday, May 14th, 2002 by Ian

Painting is done (Last night actually), and now we are moving furniture out of the bedrooms so carpet can go in tomorrow morning. Loads of fun. We get to sleep on air mattresses tonight! The kids are actually excited about it. Like a little camp out in your room.

Quinn’s room looks good. Dylan’s room literally *glows*. Our room turned out a little too purplely, but we’re going to try it and see what we can do. I may have to re-paint it somewhere down the road.

When we get everything together I’ll update the house walk through.

Gotta go move more stuff!

Things are slowwwly returning back

Friday, May 10th, 2002 by Ian

Things are slowwwly returning back to normal now that I’m mobile again. I have to say that I HATED not being able to get around myself. I know….I’m spoiled from having two cars for too long, but it really is a pain having to call people to get a ride to work.

This weekend begins with the painting of Quinn’s bedroom walls tonight. I did all the upstairs ceilings last weekend, and new bedroom carpeting comes on Wednesday, so it’s gotta be this weekend. I haven’t painted walls in some time, so I can’t remember how long it takes, but I’m pretty sure it’ll go fast.

Quinn’s room will be painted a fairly dark blue. Then a friend of Shelley’s is going to come in and paint an underwater mural scene on one wall.

Dylan’s room will be BRIGHT ORANGE. Quite frankly it scares me, but that’s what he wants. Shelley’s friend will then paint a sunset over his bed.

At leat my room will be “normal”. A fairly subdued taupe colour.
