Start of summer

Well it's almost summer vacation here! Mister M has two days left of kindergarten and then he's done until September!We don't really have much planned this summer, we like to take it easy and just chill. And since this summer I'm on Mat leave it's going to be even more relaxed.
We've already done a few things though. Gone for some country drives in the new car to see the baby cows/horses/sheep. Gone to the beach! Yeah, you read that right... we we're actually swimming in the lake the last day of May, how awesome is that?!?!?We've done a super fun trip to the Toronto Zoo as well. We went up on the GO train, spent the day there, and then spent the night in a hotel. Mister M loved it! D-Man wasn't as impressed, he didn't like sharing a room with his brother but not sharing a bed. I think he was a little scared to wake up in a strange place
I think for the rest of the summer we're just going to keep it simple. A few day trips to Toronto, another trip to the Toronto Zoo, a trip to the Bowmanville Zoo, and our annual vacation to Niagara Falls for three days and two nights.
On the college front. I've paid my OSAP deferral fee! Now all I've got to do is scrape together $190.00 for a parking pass, and find a stupid Notary Public to sign my effing affidavit. It's so freaking hard to find one in this town, it's driving me crazy!!!!!

No new car for me until tomorrow :(
The dealership never bothered to check their e-mail, so they didn't have my insurance information. They weren't able to get the Trip Permit for my car so I could take it to the mechanics to get safetied and e-tested. I'll be able to go get it tomorrow though. So it's not too bad. I wanted it now though. It means it won't be ready until Monday :(
So as you know, I've decided to lose weight. So far it's a slow but fairly steady process. I've joined Weight Watchers, I'm part of a weight loss group with my ABG mama's on Facebook, and I'm trying to walk at least 4km a day... even on weekends. For the past two days I've been walking flip flops, or my Burke's... Bad bad bad bad bad idea. Not only do my feet hurt, they get dirty, and my calves are aching. I carry D-Man in his Ergo, which is nice, because I hate strollers, but I don't think that's helping my poor calves lol.
While walking today I went by the Canada Post office downtown, they're on strike for some reason (I'm sure it matters to them but I just don't really care). I didn't think it would effect me at all, but I forgot about all my online shopping deliveries that they won't send me anymore. Stupid strike.
The deal of the day sites I frequent don't seem to care about the plight of us poor Canadians either. We're just stuck waiting for it to all be over before we get our packages. Although Baby Heist has come up with a wonderful idea. They're using a courier service, but they said that if you pay for a flat rate box, they'll hold all your purchases until the box is full and then send it. Instead of paying for courier delivery on each individual purchase. I think that's awesome. Too bad I'm completely broke from buying my car lol.

Wow it's been quite a while since I've posted. We've been so busy I just haven't had the time. I've got tons of new exciting news to share!!! I think I'll have to do a paragraph per person at least lol.
D-Man: He's standing for longer and longer solo, might be walking soon! He's really gotten good at crawling, he goes all over the place now. He's pulling himself up to a stand whenever he can manage it. He's learning how to feed himself too, it can get messy, but it's not too bad! He says hi, bye, cat, papa, yeah, Mama, Brother, something that sounds kinda like his brothers actual name, up and ood which means food lol.
Mister M: he's almost done Kindergarten.... OMG, my baby isn't a baby for sure now. He's hilarious, and witty. He's reading a lot more, still doesn't love it though, but I'm hoping by the end of the summer he will. He's such a ladies man, he's been invited to a birthday party where he's the only boy lol. He's okay with it, but a little sad that there won't be anyone to play battles with him while he's there lol. He keeps growing like a weed... I just went out and bought him a new wardrobe because things that fit him a couple of months ago are too small now... it's crazy. We've got the pool set up in the backyard, so he'd be in it all day long if I'd let him.
Me: I!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's my first one ever, I'm so excited. It's a 1999 Mercedes Benz C230 4 Door Sedan, black, with leather interior. I pick it up from the dealer tomorrow! Then have to take in into the shop to get a window fixed.... but they took $800 off asking for it so it's all good. Just heard back from my insurance lady today... I only have to pay $85.00 a month for insurance!!!! I love love love love her! She's awesome. Everywhere else I've found quotes for was something like $300 a month.....I can't afford that, are you kidding me?!?!?! And once I get my G2 it's only going to go up to just under $200.00 a month which is still good! Now I've just got to learn how to drive...
