After a busy summer of reno's , I was enrolled this past week in a very extensive 8 hr per day Provincial Autism Certification course...wheee I passed!!
I now have the weekend to recoup before starting school Sept 5th.
Tomorrow doing the very last project on my list..getting new lino in the bathroom and then installing the new toilet! Ha! must be getting old when I'm more excited about that then new shoes.
My foster kittens and mama are doing great and I'll post some very touching photos of Merlin and the kittens soon. Merlin took it apon himself to feel they all needed cleaning.
Marianne and the boys
Next year on your vacation could you come and visit me? I have tons of jobs around the house to be done and now with my husband's medical issues - I could use the help.
You are accustom to dealing with autism so my 18 yr old son won't be a problem and .... You could bring your dogs!
