Total random stuff

I haven't had much free time to post this week and I do miss it when I don't get the chance to sit and write and reflect but sometimes that's how it comes at you pretty fast and you have to take the quiet moments when you get a chance.

Last sunday we took Alex to the city and enjoyed the Dinosaurs live show at Madison Square Garden and we enjoyed our family time. I had set up for mom to spend the day with Sylvie but as it turned out Jesse was home and was more than happy to chill out with his grandma all day and they went and had dinner at Sylvie's house. Here is a picture I took as we were leaving for our day in the city.
Here are a couple short videos I took with my cell phone at the show.

Alex was pretty wiped out when we were heading home and fell asleep on the train ride back, out like a light!

It was nice to enjoy our hot tub after a long day traveling to Manhattan and seeing a show! What a life, huh?

Mom is getting pretty adept at her self care skills and here she is in her bathroom doing her morning routine of washing up and brushing her teeth.

Phone calls from friends and family always brighten her day and here she is talking to Tammy from Florida, one of her most favorite and cherished neighbors. **waves to Tammy**

Pookie has to be watched constantly because she is a little thief and we cannot leave any food unattended in this house let me tell ya! She is watching Alex enjoying his soup like a hawk and hoping he will walk away for a moment so she can snatch some of it for herself. Mom and I thought it was pretty funny how she sat there like a statue watching Alex eat.

Luckily I have unlimited calls to Canada in my phone plan and mom was so happy to hear it and I dialed the number so that she can call her cousin, Madeleine , in Montreal. :) Here she is talking to her and smiling away.

Well, I've got a bathroom to clean so I better get myself off this chair for now.
