I have been missing in action for a month now. Lots have happened since I last posted. I was approached to go to a new department on an assignment for about 4 months. The position came very unexpectedly. I could not turn it down. It's still with the RCMP training academy, but instead of cleaning, I am in the print shop. ( more money) I print out curriculum for the cadets as well as other printing jobs that anyone else with the academy needs ! I have been there for 2 weeks now and I am loving it so much! It is such a happy place to work. I look forward to going to work every day. I have also been spending time looking after my wee grand babies. They are so much fun and such a joy. They came to spend the day with me today. It was a hot day. Plus 29 celsius. I wanted to take the girls to the park early before it got too hot. So we set off at about 9:30 am with juice and snack and walked to the park, only 2 blocks away. Josie and Abby climbed and ran, and had a great time. On the way home Josie ( 20 months) all of a sudden stopped about half a block away and just seemed to run out of gas. I coaxed her along very slowly to my apartment. By the time we got to the front door of my apartment she all of a sudden just had enough and could not go any farther. It seemed that gramma had made her go too far. Poor little thing. She had a melt down for about 10 or 15 minutes. I was able to carry her up to my apartment where she cried and asked for her mommy. After that she calmed down, had lunch and had a 4 hour nap. Wow. She was tired. Did not mean to tire her out so much. I guess she needed the sleep. During her long nap I was able to spend time with Abby. She's 4 and we watched a movie and played make believe with my many teddy bears! It was a great day.
