Computer STILL in the shop (grrrr)

Yes, our computer is still in the shop. If I have learned anything from this experience it is to never buy a computer from Staples unless I buy the store warranty. Silly me, thinking the manufacturer's warranty would still enable to have things fixed in a timely fashion. Nope, if you haven't paid for the store warranty, Staples seems to think they can just string you along for months and months. Ryan is on his way to the store right now to complain about the latest voicemail message they left for us saying there's nothing wrong with our computer and it's ready to be picked up (yet again). Hopefully by week's end we'll have some sort of solution to this problem...

In the meantime, we are enjoying (?) our record high temperatures of 36. Kaitlyn's kiddie pool is set up on the deck and she goes in it daily. Work is still cutting my hours to half time which is great because I get to spend more time with Kaitlyn but not so great in the financial department. Ryan is working solo this week with Colin being away for his parents' anniversary in Edmonton so he's still super busy. He's feeling better these days with less headaches and seems to be on the mend.

Oh yes - the concert! It was fabulous!! It was so wonderful to get away for an evening. We stayed at a hotel minutes from GM Place so it was just a quick walk there and back after the concert and we didn't have to fight with traffic. Our seats were incredible and the show was unbelievable. They did their classic hits plus a few new songs and even some unexpected ones like "It's Only Love" by Bryan Adams. I don't think they expected a standing ovation for that one but hey, this is Bryan Adams' territory after all. They performed 2 encores and I was on my feet singing along the entire concert. And it was wonderful to come back and hear Kaitlyn had slept great for my parents and they had a super time bonding.

Other than that, I see my blog needs some updating as far as Kaitlyn's crawling (she now walks everywhere) and the concert countdown. Take care everyone! Hopefully I'll have some new pics once we have a working computer again...
