march 1st
THE outlook of this day is good. We may have found a home in Cold Lake but it is iffy.
I will be drawing a winner for february beads the beginning of next week.
Once I no longer am stressed to the gills over looking for houses in Cold Lake.

March 3rd, Blues
Well the house we wanted the other couple got so we are back to looking again. Which is depressing.
But we are home and Quinton and I are home for awhile so I can't wait to get back to work. No more
procrastinating.
So I am going to bed early tonight and hope to do some positive things tomorrow. And early to bed for me is 10pm.

March 4th
Yeah today I made beads and it was good because I have not made beads for a while because we have been travelling alot. But now I know that we will be home for spell and I want to get back to work. Now just to get Quinton to work for me?!

March 6th,
roy leaves tomorrow for the new job so I will announce the winner late tomorrow so that we have some time together before he goes. Quinton will need all the daddy time he can get.
March 8th at 10:30pm, sunshine
Today was another sunny day with a high of +5 celius. yeah.
It was a busy day because there is someone coming to check of the house tomorrow so I had to clean and then tomorrow the day is shot for me with running around.
How is a girl suppose to torch? You know what writing block is but have you ever heard of beadmaking block? I have that right now so I am trying to get on the torch for a little bit every couple of days just to make beads and nothing to specific, just make beads.
I did add some new pictures of Quinton on and I did try add some new beads in the gallery site.
Take care

March 8th, bite mark
Yesterday at lunch with the other mom and her child. The kids were playing and then the other baby bit Quinton. The mother was mortified that her child did it and Quinton cried but not that much. I took pictures of the mark so that Roy can see it. Quinton is doing well, my biggest concern though is if he will start biting people.



Posted new beads for the contest. quinton picked them and just so you know there is one bead by the bumble bee which is black with raku so the colors change around the bead from blue to yellow and it is very pretty.

I get them not that often but I get them. So today is the day I get one, or it is coming or whatever. Its here. Nothing like having to run around town and leave the house to have a showing when your brain hurts. But I will go to bed early, I promise, so that it will go away and come back another day.(just not tomorrow)

I am sorry I have not written at all this past weekend. It ended up that Roy found a house and put an offer on it with one of the conditions that I see it. So Saturday, while in Red Deer, he calls me: Quinton and I have to run home and then pack and start driving again. We stayed over night at my parents place and then I left Quinton and went to Cold Lake at 6:30am to be there before noon. Saw the house, got it inspected and there was another offer given the same time as ours but I guess the people liked our offer more so we are getting the house. We are not moving there until the end of June, because the other people are waiting for the kids to get out of school before they move.
The house is going to be different for us because it is about 20 years old, and we have been living in brand new homes the last couple of times. But the house is nice and has good "bone structure" and we need to do some things to it to up date it but they are not critical. The first things we plan to do when we move in is put a new furnace and water tank and heater in the garage. The furnace and water tank are original with the house and still work but our energy using hogs.


March 14th, cookies
Last night I baked cookies for the lunch with the ladies of the handicraft guild. The meeting is not until thursday but I figured, I better get my act together.
Yesterday morning it snowed and by 5pm it was pretty well all melted again. I did take Quinton out on the sled to go look at some birds. He thinks they are cool.
The days are running faster right now and I cannot wait until I can stay home and not have to travel all the time.
Oh and I did get to make 3 beads yesterday before I had to stop. Maybe today I will get lucky and have more time.

March 15th, paska
Is a type of Ukrainian bread made for the holidays. And I can never remember if it is bapka or paska, I like best. But I like the one that is yellow inside with raisins and the way we make it is WAY better then how the stores make it. I am feeling a little blue because the next week and a half Quinton and I are travelling around Alberta( to my disgust) so I have decided that I will not be going anywhere for Easter. Which makes me want to cry, because I did not go home for Christmas and missed seeing all the family together.
I missed calling my best friend this past weekend and now with travelling AGAIN I will not be able to call her this week at all and I am sorry girlfriend. Hugs to Stitch and your other half.
I did not get any beadmaking done and I think it is going to be at least 2 weeks before I do get to torch again.
I am trying to fill orders also which is very bloody hard because of not being home.
we did find a home in Cold Lake and will find out by Friday if we get it because we are trying to get our financing by then. But in case we don't I am still going on the MLS listings and looking at houses.
So it is late and I am going to bed forget the dishes they will be there in the morning.
take care.

March 16th, adorable
Today making a 3 hour trip to Edmonton to pick Roy up and drive back. Quinton is really going to hate his car seat because I am fighting with him know just to strap him in.
Please make the last week of March quiet with NO road trips.

March18th, Oasis
Going up to Edmonton to take the beading course. Nothing like traveling to make you want to stay home. I hope that this month goes very fast so that I can have April to only travel once(again to Edmonton) and spend the rest of the time at home.
Picked Roy up on the 16th at 5pm and then we drove home. Quinton was so happy to see his bed that he didn't even put up a fuss when I put Pjs on him.

March 20th
I'm at my sisters place right now and she has to girls so they are totally playing with Quinton, I hope he sleeps well tonight. He has a cold right now and last night he ended sleeping with me and hogging the whole bed.
I am invited to a lampworkers meeting tonight. I don't know if I can make it because the kid is sick with a snotty cold. It would be nice to talk with other lampworkers because I have been out of the loop so long that I really feel like an outsider.
The course went well yesterday, I didn't know electroforming takes at least 12 hours. Wow, no wonder the beads cost more.

Hello, we are at the in-laws house right now and it has been a pleasant trip so far. The weather has be warm and the snow has been melting and it is very mushy. We had to buy Quinton rubber boots to go through the puddles.
Today I got to drive the quad today and scape some of the slush off the roads so that the cars can get off the driveway.
We will be home soon and I cannot wait.
later

March 27th
Yeah we are home and it is for more then 3 days. Have so much to do, like the taxes.
Listing our home today so that it will hopefully sell before we move.
I am not going to write long because we are home and I want some time to do stuff for ME!

march 29th,midnight
It is midnight in the crazy Bailey ward. I have just finished an order and am going to bed now.
I had a customer come over today and she brought the kids. Well the little girl went straight to Quintons toys and all Quinton did was watch her and follow her around. Quinton is now finding other children fascinating and it is really funny to watch him watching kids.
Today when I finally get up, we will go work out and I hope that while Quinton has a nap, I can torch.
later

March 31st, kitty
Last week while at my sisters place Quinton got to see what a cat looks like up close.  The problem is this cat is not really people friendly so every time Quinton walked past the cat, the cat would hiss at him.  Now Quinton thinks that is what a cat says. 
Today I took the kid to the doctors to check out him out so the day totally got screwed.  We did the walk in clinic and went at 9am, well we did not see the doctor until 12:15pm.  I really feel for the medical people because there is just not enough to help the people and that has been in every town we lived in.  Heck we are going to Cold Lake and NONE of the doctors are taking new patients.

It is 11:30pm on the 30th and while Quinton has been sleeping I have been working on filling orders for some customers.  Tomorrow if the day stays nice, I hope to run to Didsbury to the trade show to find a company that will do basic landscaping for us just in case the house does not sell fast.
