New bikes, raccoons and work

Before I begin, I need to state that this is being written ( with two thumbs) on my iPhone. In the car. I’m not the one driving. So, please excuse typos and strange iPhone autocorrected words.
We are headed south to visit my sister for Easter. This will be my first visit home in a year. I do see my sister, but usually she heads to visit me in Toronto.

Anyway, on to the main event. Those of you who have been paying attention may have noticed that I’ve been neglectful of my blog for the past couple of weeks. Believe me, it’s not that there hasn’t been stuff for me to talk about. I have no excuse other than wanting to disconnect from the interweb and just read my book. Alice Hoffman, The Dovekeepers. I am obsessed with this book (that I’m reading on my Kobo). So good. Here’s a link to the book.

A big milestone was reached in Brendan’s life over the past couple of weeks. As soon as the weather started to turn nice, we brought out the tricycle. It took one short ride to see that I’ve the winter Brendan outgrew it. So off we went to Canadian Tire to get a two-wheeler (with training wheels). He loves it and rides his bike with no fear. Nathan inherited (gladly) the trike, but only pedals if one of us is holding on to him or the bike.

As for the raccoons. I just don’t have he energy for he full story now, but to summarize: four raccoons were evicted from our chimney. Three were about the size of my hand. It cost $300, and (until they were gone) many sleepless nights. Damn raccoons.

Oh..and work is exhausting me lately. Anyone have tips on how I can become independently wealthy?
