Let's see, what's new...

Alex cut another tooth that we discovered Saturday night. This would be tooth #2.

Alex, just today, has started wanting to hold her own sippy cup herself, and starts crying if I try to give it to her.

I think she has a hollow leg... she's consuming far more food that she should be capable of, and it's got me somewhat concerned.

I haven't got my Christmas letter written yet. Maybe I should do that now.

I don't think Christmas cards will be happening this year, but maybe I can manage to do the Christmas letter.

I tried to order this toy for Christmas, but the bastards are going to charge an obscene amount to ship to Canada, and I can't seem to find it in Canada anywhere. I can find it in several places in the US, but stupid online US stores all say "Ohhhh we can't ship to Canada, or take a Canadian credit card... have you thought of looking at a Canadian store?". Fuckers.

I have so many things I want to accomplish before I go back to work, and I'm afraid they won't be happening.

Can anyone slow down time for me? That would be a kickass Christmas present.

That's a way cute toy... I just checked and it would be $19 to ship it to me in Detroit... Where in Canada are you... any off chance you're in/near Windsor?

Unfortunately I'm out in Saskatchewan, so it would be quite a ways from there :/

Ouch. I remember learning how to spell Saskatchewan in 10th grade geography... for one reason or another I thought it was a really funny word. Do you have any family in the states that you'll see for the holidays or anything? Maybe they could order it for you. I think it's stupid how they charge so much extra for shipping just because it has to go across an imaginary line.

My in-laws actually live 10 minutes from the border, and they have a P.O. box in a border town specifically for that reason, however UPS apparently won't ship to a P.O. box, and that company only uses UPS.

I'm hoping that the in-laws will go shopping across the border and might happen to come across it :/

Try saying Saskatoon, Saskatchewan :P

Most people saying that for the first time get a real kick out of the name :P

Saskawho, Saskawhere?
A lot of my friends around the NY and Boston area haven't the foggiest idea of Canadian geography beyond a few of the majors. My standard response to their wondering where Saskatoon is located is, "drive to Mt. Rushmore and turn right. Drive 12 more hours or until they stop making roads, whichever comes first."

Unfortunately, most of these rocket scientists don't know where Mt. Rushmore is either, so it doesn't help much ...

Pfft... "until they stop making roads"

Betcha think we live in igloos too :P

Although right now, the amount of snow out there does sorta make it look like we do live in giant igloos :X

I love how stores assume that you are stupid. Of course you tried Canadian stores first!!! What do they think you like spending the extra money to have it shipped here. GRRR!!

Jillian just popped tooth #5 and 6 this last week. She still hasn't really figured out the sippy cup she just likes to chew on it.

If I figure out how to slow time down for myself I will pass on the information to you.

Yeah Alex started out by chewing on it, and she still likes to do that... but everytime she chewed she'd get a squirt of water. She'll only take the occasional sucks when she's really thirsty. Maybe Jillian just isn't thirsty enough?

Hollow leg lol I've been thinking about becoming a wooden one with my stress. Could sure use a strong drink and not no water damnit ;)
