Today one of Jamie's co-workers came to pick up the washer & dryer that came with the house we moved into. We finally were supposed to get our new washer & dryer installed in the new house. We've been living here since November and we didn't sell the washer & dryer fast enough, so it kind of just sat in my laundry room, and my washer & dryer sat in the garage, in "Storage"...
Well, let's just say that the washer & dryer that we were getting rid of, DID NOT fit through the door. We had to take off the door frame to get the machines out. Since Jamie's co-worker was actually moving today, so he left, and Jamie & my dad (above) worked on getting the door frame off (which made a HUGE mess). Let's just say, that I can't wait for my new machines to be put into the laundry room tomorrow, and the door frame to be put back on. (That's my personal yarn stash hanging on the wall.... well some of it anyhow!) I got to use my own machines for about 3 months or so before we moved from the duplex here. I miss my machines!
Yes, the invasion of the cucumber. I accidentally planted 3-4 seeds per pellet. My reasoning behind it? That at least 1 of the 3-4 would be a thriving plant and succeed in the garden. (Because some of my tomato plants died). Well, I need to find people who are planting a garden and want cucumbers.... because I have a lot of them planted! Any Montrealers interested?? I can't wait to start gardening in two weekends, and I'm slowly doing my research on what I need to do to prepare, etc.
So, I wrote an email back in 2005, yes, in June, it would be 3 years ago that I wrote this email:

Thanks for getting back to me 3 years after my email and our conversation in regards to a position at your magazine. I am currently running my own successful business and as well I'm about to go on maternity leave with a baby on the way in about 7 weeks. Unfortunately right now I do not have the time to come in with a portfolio, you are 3 years too late.
Thank you for your interest,
Well, the Habs season is officially over. We lost tonight, even though we played what I thought a great game. (Until the end).... Well, there's always next year. Congrats to the Flyers - you knocked us out - may you go all the way.... (I'm supposed to take down the Habs flag asap, according to the hubby)....!
I got some knitting tonight done on Judy's Grandmother's Baby Sweater. I'm absolutely loving the way it's coming out. I'm hoping it will be 6 month size, though it seems to me that it may be a little bit bigger than 6 month size. It's so hard to tell with baby clothing if it's exactly a certain size. Because even baby clothing can not be the same from one company to the next. All I'm hoping is that it will fit Mackenzie at some point during the winter. Though, living in Montreal, we have two seasons, winter & summer, so I'm sure he'll get plenty of use out of it!
My (braxton-hicks) contractions are getting harder and more uncomfortable. Mackenzie is WAY more active in my belly than Sean was. There is never a dull moment with this baby - he lets me know he's in there. I did have a dream last night about Mackenzie, being a newborn and what he (maybe) will look like. The dream seamed so real. I have a hunch he'll look just like his brother did as a newborn, with blonde hair and blue eyes. Sean's eyes are still blue, and his hair, still golden blonde! I'm sure the summer sun will lighten Sean's hair as well.
Don't forget Robyn's Nest is have a super sock sale - 5$, 10$, 15$ and 20$ skein sale! The sale ends early in the week - so happy shopping!
