I didn't care when bed bugs were infesting hotels in New York. Or motels and hostels in Calgary or Ottawa. But now that they're infesting the Welton Towers in Mission, I may never sleep again...

Erin is on one end of the couch checking her gmail and I'm updating my blog. Pretty soon I'm going to move across the room to the other couch for a power nap. Then we might finish up the evening with some more peanut butter and dark chocolate peppermint cups while listening to Macy Gray and the Black Eyed Peas and doing laundry.

Ben just announced he's now so comfortable with Erin here he can fart in her presence. And did.

This is true visiting.

I have a friend I do tea with a couple times a week. We do Chai Tea.
Except she's dyslexic. So we do Tai Chea instead.

It's about as close as I'll ever get to marital arts.

A slice of our lives...

A Request

Dear Lori,
Ben is interested in going to church if he helps with teaching Sunday School and if I take him with someone "cool" to lunch at Wendys most of the time.
This Tuesday from 7:30 to 9:00 pm M, the new Sunday School Coordinator would like to meet with Ben and a few other people who are interested in teaching.
M. has no place to meet and G&E's house is not ready yet. Is there any chance we could meet in our living room? There will likely be a few practises you find objectionable and may cause you, if you agree, to have to flee to a friend's house.
What do you think?
Thanks for your consideration,

Dear Mike,

By all means. I'll be hosting a seance the same evening in the downstairs tv room.
