Here we are 16 days and counting. How am I going to be able to get it all done in 16 days? I don't know! I am sure it will all come together when we have 2 days left to go! For now I will try not to panic.
Wednesday evening we went out of town to visit some friends we hadn't seen in quite a while, Wayne and Chris Friesen. It was nice to sit and visit for the evening, no distractions, just peace and quiet, way up in the hills with no neighbours! Thanks for the visit Freezies! We will look forward to you coming to Angola to help us build!
Yesterday Lorena S. came to my house and seeing my need for a sanity break, took Trevor and Meagan to her house for the day, and they ended up staying until 11 PM! What a HUGE help! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You... she will never know what a blessing that was (until she is moving to Africa on missions... hehe). Tavis went to his friend Reid's for the night (thanks for keeping him overnight), and Talitha spent the evening visiting neighbours.
Pete and I were invited out to a fantastic dinner/musical production put on by Rocky Mountain Railtour (www.tworiverjunction.com). Thank you Jim for treating us! It is called Two River Junction and it is a musical based on the legendary train-robber Billy Miner! They serve an amazing dinner, and your server is someone who is in the production (we happened to have someone we knew, Matt B.). Jim Boomer (one of Pete's co-workers) was one of the robbers, and we had a great laugh at the role he had to play... I will never look at him the same again!!! (nice dress!!!) We were happy to spend the evening with friends, Glen and Florriann Fehr (Glen works with Pete also). We also shared our table with a couple of ladies from Kamloops, a couple from Calgary and a couple from Japan (who are here to run in a marathon in Vancouver). The singing and musical instrument talent was just incredible, especially Tina Moore, she is a very gifted singer with a melodious jazz voice! TV7 was there filming the evening (they taped Florriann and I loading up on dessert... ) so if you live in Kamloops and you are watching the news today, you may see us... hehe!
Well, it is time to get back to the packing. I am also doing a slideshow presentation at our kids old school (George Hilliard) this afternoon, so I need to be sure that I am ready for that! If any of you out there know of someone with a club cab/crew cab diesel 4x4 pick-up for sale (for a good price), PLEASE, get in touch with us! We are seriously looking now, since we have 16 days to find one!
Keeping you UP-TO-DATE,
