Not very exciting but here it is anyway.
Saturday we went to Barrie because the guy supposed to tile the bathroom didn't show up. We found a Maytag Clearance Centre in Barrie and bought an over the range microwave and narrowed the washer/dryer set down to 2. I had done a lot of research on line but it helped to acutally see the model. I had hoped to restock my aquarium but I am having trouble with the heater and until it stabilizes I can't. I am very annoyed about that. I bought the top of the line heater and I could have got the same results for 1/3 of the price buying a Wal-Mart heater. Connor has to pay for his own shoes because he destroys them wearing them in puddles and snow when he should be wearing boots. He was happy to find $9 skateboard shoes (reduced from $29) and bought 2 pairs - one the next size up.
After supper yesterday the five of us went skating at our outdoor rink (they flood our tennis courts). There was a small family there when we got there but they left (we have that effect on people) and a couple arrived much later. Most of the time we had the rink to ourselves. Kevin and I skated sedately around the outer perimeter. The "kids" (aged 13, 18 & 22) stayed in the middle, stole each others hats and played with pylons. They fell down a lot. Usually Tori refuses to go out in the winter so it was nice that we all got out together. Caitlin found a mole running around on the path and spent a while trying to catch it. Connor joined her and it was funny to watch their very unsuccessful attempts.
