Check out my year in review. Facebook actually did a really good job of finding those events that meant a lot to me. If you have Facebook just click on the link below and it will take you to the review, scroll down and read and look at the pictures. Enjoy!
My birthday was this past Thursday and unlike most birthday’s I planned a small group meeting on Thursday. Silly me. In the past I would not plan anything and even if something was planned I would cancel or reschedule. But not this week. Still not sure why. Hmmm… So the only recognition of my birthday was De-Ann’s kiss good-bye in the morning and a bunch of people posting on Facebook, Twitter and a few text and email messages. No party, no celebration with the family.
If that wasn’t enough on Friday we didn’t celebrate either because De-Ann had a very early Christmas party with some business people and then right after work a work Christmas party that I wasn’t invited to. So by the time she got home it was too late to celebrate with the family.
Then on Saturday we had our final family small group meeting which lasted a bit longer (2pm) because we celebrated Christmas and a special farewell to one of dearly loved families. It was both a joyous occasion and a sad one as we said good-bye. One of the ladies baked me a cake and the group sang me happy birthday. That was nice. Again, we still hadn’t celebrated as a family…yet.
By the time everyone left we were exhausted and the kids went down for a nap. So De-Ann and I crashed on the couch.
There is a happy ending though (for me). After the kids got up De-Ann and the kids came downstairs with a cake and sang happy birthday to me, gave me a cute card (see below) and a gift. Faith even wrote her name on the card, look carefully and you can see her name written out. The cake was my favourite: Oreo ice cream. Yum! And the gift was perfect: a gift card for iTunes. I call it the gift that keeps on giving.
This is a very old video that I just recently found I had to share with my blog, Facebook and Twitter friends. I believe Shawn was 18 month old or so when I took this video. It’s so cute, he is on De-Ann’s (Mommy) lap as I am trying to film him. You’ll see. Enjoy.
Unfortunately I never did find my phone, I actually wasn’t expecting to. So to replace the phone it is very expensive and the worst part is it isn’t my phone. It’s owned by my work. Which means I do have to replace it eventually.
Thankfully one of the other pastors has lent me his old iPhone 3GS until I can either buy another or Telus can get me a refurbished one. So after over a week I have a phone again, but that’s all it is or at least that’s all I am using it for. Let me explain…
Because I was using a friend’s phone it needed to be unlocked. It took 5 days to get it unlock, but I was told I can’t update it to another OS because it will lock up again. So all my contacts, calendars and apps can’t be synced because the OS my iTunes has is a newer version than the iPhone. Needless to say I am trying to figure out what to do next. I might have to get another iPhone sooner than I hoped and pay the full price. But for now I at least have a phone so if you call or text me please indicate who you are because I don’t have any contacts in my address book at the moment. Thankfully I can still tweet and update my Facebook from my phone.
Can you believe I was without a phone for 10 days and I survived? haha.
