I have been busily working on Lily's quilt so that it will be done in time to take to Halifax, in just a little over 2 weeks. I have finished the machine sewing and just need to flip the binding over and do the hand stitching on the back. I turned the TV off while I worked, so as not to get distracted. So, I have been enjoying my Christmas CDs. Right now, I am listening to the heavenly voices of Il Divo. They are incredible...and not too hard to look at either! :)
I forgot to mention in the Mock 5k report, that everyone got prizes! This year, all the men got socks and the ladies got headbands! I chose a pretty turquoise/green one. When I opened the package, I found out that there were TWO headbands! There is a silicone strip inside them, so they don't slip. I tried one on and it felt great. I can't wait to try one out on a run!
My phone has been giving me grief for a long time. Even though I had only a couple apps on it, it kept giving me a message that I was short on storage space. There was plenty of room on the SD card, but it wouldn't let me move some things over. When I searched the problem on the internet, I found that a lot of people had the same problem. Then, when I went to the company website, I found out that this model has been discontinued! No surprise there! Yesterday, Josh wanted to go to the Koodo kiosk and change his phone, so I went along and got a new one. I got an iPhone. I have been wanting one so I could do Face Time with Sarah and the girls. Koodo had some protective cases, but just solid colours. There was a kiosk right next door with tons of pretty cases, so I went there and found a really pretty one that was also $10 cheaper than the one at Koodo!
I still have lots of stuff to learn that comes with getting a new piece of technology, but I got to talk to and see the girls yesterday for about 15 minutes! I saw their Christmas tree and the stocking that Lily was decorating for her Snow White bear, and watched Emma make her silly faces. It was wonderful!
