lies lies lies

yes. It is true.
I am full of them.
one month I say I wil post once a month, and four months later... LIES! BAH!

I would like to formally apologize, as I have been officially obsessed with the "MySpace" phenom for a little while now, causing me to drift from my blog-world duties...

Not that there is much to update you on in my little life! not really!
Adrian and I are house hunting... we plod along on this journey of jumping markets, cheap flips, and intense bidding wars... BOO!!! it's frustrating. But the good thing is that we are so content in our apartment. It serves us perfectly well in the meantime... so that is a relief! Woo hoo!!

Easter was yesterday - and a busy morning it was!
that's the one thing about working at church. I will rarely EVER get churc calendar holidays off... they are actually 3 times as busy as a regular weekend for me... and Good Friday and Easter were no exception. We had a pretty killer time of it all though. I directed a worship choir for Easter morning, and we ROCKED THE HOUSE!!! hehe. It was a lot of fun.
"He is Risen indeed!!"

So now i feel like I have to recuperate from the mayhem of the past weekend.
Sigh. Breathe.

Oh! Oh! Oh!
Adrian and I finally got NEW PHONES!!! A luxury we are so thrilled about.. on sale at London Drugs folks! Regular 80 smacks... now only 50!!! And it's a dual cordless handset, super fly, and super awesome, and now I can actually control the volume, AND it wont spasmadically die on me! YAHHH!!!! I am pretty pumped about them. Panasonic no less! Adrian told me they are supposed to be the better brand of phone... so here's hoping they last us FOREVER!!! hehe.

what else what else what else...
OH! My birthday was recent.
March 31st - and I had a LOVELY day - a practice in the morning, but then a play in the afternoon followed by Thai food (YUM YUM!!) and a very small gathering at our apartment, where we listened to my new Feist CD (a gift! Thank you!) and chatted, and had coffee, and this delightful fruit amazing-ness that Adrian made. GOOD JOB ADRIAN! All in all, it was a lovely day.

I am realizing more and more, that as much as I am an extrovert, I usually prefer a quiet, intimate crowd, to a huge, loud one... crazy hm? Don't I know it! I used to be all about the social mayhem... but I am nearly a "homebody" entertainer... part of it might be affording large crowds (hehe) - but I think I just love being at home, having some coffee, and lighting some of the MANY candles I am obsessed with having... *sigh*... PERFECTION!

anyhow... I cannot write much longer, as my day needs to START ALREADY! and there has been TOO MUCH of this on the internet business! But hello to my family of bloggers... I am sorry that I have been a real turd on the blog front. Now that I have written this blog I think to myself, "myspace PIESPACE!"
PIE! I LOVE IT!!! (dont! don't touch the pie Maria!)
mmmmm a la mode...

Love and Cheers!!!!

HI MARIA! Thanx for posting! And for commenting on my blog too. I checked out your myspace too, since you actually use that :) I don't use mine really, I'm more a blogger. Crazy stuff though.
I hope that house shopping goes alright for you. I know it's crazy. Just be glad you're doing it in Winnipeg, not in Edmonton... You'd be spending 6 times the money here! It's just nuts, but it's good for those of us who are IN the building business, who are selling those houses... :)
I love you too! Miss ya.

Much love

Excellent to hear you are alive and well! I have questions about your apartment if you're house searching. First of all where exactly is it? Secondly, when would you be looking to move out? Thirdly, how much do you pay for rent? I need an apartment for my return to Canada, and while I'm working on any leads possible.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!

The pattern would be announced at the beginning of the game, so you have to be careful to know what pattern you are looking out for. The cards have the b-i-n-g-o letters on rows and numbers running as a column. A host would call out a letter-number combination, which you would have to mark on your sheet. For example if I-34 is called, you will have to look at the I column down to search for number 34. In case you have it, you place a market on it, and so on. [url=]phentermine[/url] buy phentermine
