Quick trip to town

Have I mentioned how much I love having a road? We drove into Whitehorse yesterday afternoon after Matt and the town garage fixed our flat tire. Evil nail. It was a busy trip and I was back here in Faro by early afternoon today. In that short time we:
- bought me a used treadmill (now I don't have to barf in public as much)
- of course went shopping at walmart
- went to Matt's favorite: Home Hardware
- took booties into Midnight Sun Gallery (they had ordered six pairs and ordered 4 pairs of my toddler booties!)
- had physicals for our life insurance (Matt was offered two different nursing jobs by the guy doing the physicals; nice to know if we ever move to Whitehorse there are lots of jobs waiting)
- ate KFC (why oh why do I do that to myself)
- slept a little
- dropped off booties to Jade who seemed to like them!
- went to the camper place to learn how to winterize my camper
- picked up the work vehicle Matt will be driving (he is just happy it has a cd player)
- ate McDonalds for breakfast (mmmmmmmmm... and I didn't even ralph it up later)
- bought some fabric and thingys from the sewing store
- went grocery shopping
- got diesel for truck and jerry cans

Holy crud talk about busy! But I forgot to buy myself a little space heater for our chilly downstairs. I have been moving my office and sewing stuff downstairs, but man alive it is cold down there.... and I am still scared of the zombies. So the serger and sewing machine will be living on the kitchen table for a while longer.

You are so cute. I was never so much scared of zombies as alligators, sharks, and cougars. Which is a weird combination but still. Sharks in the water, alligators under the bed and cougars ready to pounce if you weren't in bed by the time the light switch got turned off :-) Still find myself jumping sometimes.

We don't miss having a basement. Back south it was always cold, damp and had junk piled everywhere.

Sounds like a fun trip. How long is the drive?

I had McDonald's breakfast 2 weeks ago so I'm still OK. I'm surprised you didn't take pictures to tease everyone with. I miss Wal-Mart.

Michael- glad Jade likes her booties! Hunter loved those purple toys you guys gave him!

In Iqaluit- it is 365km each way. Not too bad at all.

i miss having a basement for storage but i am too scared to be there on my own. i think it will be great though since the kids can play downstairs as i sew.

right now, my sewing machine is on our dining table, and i really do try to keep it tidy so we dont hv to eat on the kitchen counter or coffee table..lol
