I am sure glad that someone reads this blog because it resulted in great Indian food for lunch. Sat down with a couple of friends and solved all the problems of the world. A really interesting discussion was had by all on parenting, not our own, but our parents, and how that has impacted us. Very interesting. The bottom line was that our parents were definitely not helicopter parents.
Since both our watches were on the fritz we had to come up with something that tells time and has an alarm...all for under ten bucks. We visited Zellers, Sportcheck, and the Supercentre. All had something that would do in a pinch, but wouldn't clip on the backpack. Mastermind to the rescue. A kid's clip-on timepiece with a clock and alarm for $6.95, ages three and up. The only problem was that you had to be three to get the thing set up. We finally sorted it out and it is good to go.
Gerry's team had a good-bye party for him tonight. He read me the riot act and told me that I had to behave. I did. A good time was had by all. The food was great and the company even better. Thank you hostess with the mostess. Until tomorrow.
