I do appologise for being so busy, and not updating my blog sooner!
A few weeks ago Kristin and I finally visited each other. I went to her house for the premiere of Greys Anatomy on a Thursday, and we went shopping and to Tim Hortons. Of course, I spent way too much money at Walmart and we baked cookies, drank wine, and did a lot of gossiping!
Grimshaw is beautiful. She definitely got the better location (being only 20 minutes away from a Tim Hortons and Walmart), however, I am the only reporter at my paper which makes my job fun because I get to choose my hours and projects. All in all, its a win-win situation!
On Saturday, Kristin came to La Crete to visit Chris and I for the night. She came while Chris was working, so we had time to gossip without a boys interfearance. We went in to La Crete to buy the new High Valley CD, and then like the total creepers we are, stook outside their parents' home just across the street and took photos of us with the High Valley CDs. I'll be sure to upload that once I get it on my computer!
By the way, I LOVE their CD. It is SO La Crete. Fellow Ontarians, they are touring in Ontario in Belleville, Peterborough, and Oshawa (opening for Carolyn Dawn Johnson) you guys should totally go!
Then Chirs, Kristin and I decided to go to the Blue Hills Lookout. All the while, Kristin was assuring us "this is going to be breathtaking" as my car was fishtailing and swirving around on the thick gravel road. It started to get mucky, so I decided to drop it into second. Then first. Then I realized my car wasn't moving. I tried third, second, first, drive. Nothing. Now, I had started to roll backward. I quickly slam on the break and pull the emergency break and Kristin and Chris get out to investigate. They ended up wiping off as much muck as they could from my tires so I could back down the gia-normous hill, which was also on a curve. Of course, we stopped for a photo shoot before backing down the rest of the hill.
That evening we had a local teacher over to play Dutch Blitz and Blockus. Hilarious! So much fun. His name was Greg, and I believe he will become my new La Crete best friend!
That night at 2am we were called to a fire call. I had had a couple of drinks, so Chris had to drive me to it. So there we go, all four of us, to an accident down on 94th. It was a lot of fun and Kristin was too excited to be called by the fire department at 2am!
The next morning, Chirs, Kristin and I went to a Christian Fellowship church and then had a wonderful picnic outside while playing bored games. Around three, Kristin left, thinking she was going home. Little did she know the ferry would be closed, forcing her to return to La Crete by 5pm, wasting two hours of driving and gas, to go north an hour to High Level and then back down toward Grimshaw. She made it safely home by 9pm.
This weekend, Chris, Kristin, Greg and I are going to Jasper for two nights (thanks to my wonderful Uncle Paul for booking us the hotel!), so I'll be sure to update my blog again after our trip to the beatiful rockies!
