We buried my grandfather on Thursday as mentioned in the post The Final Good-Bye. It was hard just as I expected to be. We had a good laugh though as it ends up my step-mom was rushing my dad out of the house and they almost forgot the guest of honor. That wouldn’t have gone over to well. Get to the cemetery and Grandpa is still on the shelf at home. It was a quick yet meaningful burial. Typical of my family and just what Grandpa would have wanted. Actually Grandpa probably could have done without us all being there. Grandpa never did like being made a fuss of or being the centre of attention. It seems to run in the family.
Today was a nice day but man my feet hurt. We went to the Museum of Nature and Little Man had a good time. He loved the dinosaurs and running around touching everything. Near the end though we could tell he was getting tired but he made it through the entire museum and I am impressed. My mom also came with us to the museum. It was really nice having her there and getting to spend the afternoon with her. Tomorrow I am going shopping with her and my Aunt who I haven’t seen in a long time. I am looking forward to it.
After we got back to the hotel I went out for a drink and got to meet Mommycrat. Was really nice to get together with another adult that I am not related to and just go out for a relaxing drink. Though it probably would have been more relaxing without the wasps. They seemed to have an attraction to my drink. The first time Mommycrat and I slowly backed away from the table the guy sitting beside us got rid of the wasp for us. The second time we admitted defeat and moved inside to finish our drinks. I had a good time even though I made my sunburn worse. Next time I will listen to Tobei and apply sunscreen.
Oh yes sunburn leads us into the next event of the day. Going to Zellers to buy Aloe Vera and some extra groceries that the grocery service at the hotel couldn’t find. My son was tired and my feet were killing me yet we decided going this evening was a must for my sunburn. On the way there though we did stop by the War Memorial.
Picture from Google. I didn’t have my camera.
After spending a few moments there we continued our walk to Zellers. So we get to Zellers and the place closes in 20 minutes. What is with the weird hours? Anyways Little Man announces that he has to pee. Of course he does. He always has to pee when we get somewhere new. So we ask a sales rep where the bathroom is and she kindly informs us there are no washrooms. I asked her if there were no washrooms where did she go pee. She told me they had washrooms but the public has to go like a block away to pee. Really?? Well my 3 year old needs to pee now so where is the closest tree. I am serious. I told her I would go find a tree. She told me to go ask at customer service. The nice lady at the customer service desk brought my son and I to the staff washrooms so he could pee. She thankfully understood the emergency when a 3 year old announces they must pee.
We got back to the hotel and Little Man had a bath then went to bed where he fell asleep in less than 15 minutes. Can we say tired boy? I guess it helped that last night he decided to stay up playing in the room until somewhere around 11:30 at night.
So that sums up my day. I honestly meant for this to be a really short post but I guess that didn’t work out too well. I may not post again until Sunday or Monday. Depends on time and my patience with the netbook. I will be online off and on but my family is getting most of my attention this week-end. I hope you all have a fantastic week-end.
Oh yes and don’t forget the CrazyDog T-Shirts giveaway ends on Sunday and the Playhouse Disney Prize Pack giveaway ends on the 18th. Go enter and good luck!
