Do Not Adjust Your Monitor!

Yes, you are in the right place, if you be looking for the Winters Family Matron. (Matron makes me sounds so old, doesn't it?)

I have been busy as a bee, working on this template, and through trial, error, and sleepless nights, I finally figured out how to create it. I even found out that CSS stands for Cascading Style Sheet, which is the type of template that Blogger likes. Wheee! I've learned so much about HTML over the last week, my head hurts! All because I'm too cheap to pay someone else to do what I knew I could do myself. (That, and I like a challenge.) I'm sure I'll be tweaking it a bit over the next week or so, but I was so excited about it, I figured it was high time to go live.

Speaking of excitement, we are going down to Sylvan Lake for the weekend. Jason managed to get a 4-day weekend at work, thanks to the way the altered schedule there works. We are going down for Jason's brother Nick's wedding reception. (The wedding happened in April in the Bahamas, or some other such tropical place.) This will likely be our last trip down for the year, so we are hoping to make the most of it. I've got two friends with new babies to see, errands to do in Red Deer, and of course, a ton of friends and family to visit, if possible.

I told Jude on Monday that we would be going to visit Papa (my dad), and he's been counting sleeps ever since. He asked, "and Grandpa and Grandma, too?" meaning Jason's parents, and was pretty stoked when I answered in the affirmative. Too cool. It will be great when we can start having conversations like that with Noah.

Well, I better go get some laundry done, to get ready for the trip. Before I go, though, I would like you to meet my friend Christa from Sylvan Lake. This busy "oilpatch widow" just had baby #4, and just began blogging a few weeks ago. C'mon, welcome her to bloggy land and drop a line on her blog!
