Back from the Oyster Run

What a great weekend. There were more bikes, more vendors than I remember from before. I saw some really neat bikes. I even saw a goldwing with a turbo! I also saw some 'interesting people'! Enjoy the pictures.

Oyster Run!

So I'm heading out to Anacortes Washington tomorrow for the Oyster Run. I really hope I can ride by bike. I'm still kind of sick, well, just hacking and feeling tired. However, the dr said I'd probably be ok to ride, we'll just see. I really need to get back on my bike before the season is over here. I really miss her, and I know she misses me!!! I hate being sort of still sick. grrrrrrrrr.

I hate being sick. I've been sick all week. This week all I've done is, HACK, HACK HACK, HACK, SNORT, SNEEZE, HACK, HACK, moan...., pain, you get the picture. Not pretty is it? Apparently, I have bronchitis and sinus infection. At least my sinus' hurt less today. Now I'm just hacking up a lung or 2.

But, a good point. I found out that ADT does work! I got a phone call last night at 2am from ADT,the glass breakage alarm went off, ADT had already called the police. So off Randy and I head downtown, all the while thinking,oh crap what a mess. I'm assuming the TV in the window is gone, glass everywhere, what a mess at 2 in the morning! We get to the office, the RCMP is already there, nothing is broken! We find the rock that someone threw against the door, there's just a mark on the door where the rock hit. I guess the alarm scared whoever did this off. Well, that was $30 well spent this month!

Back to school

Well it's back to school, fall must be here.
This past weekend, we moved Candace into her dorm at UBC Okanagan in Kelowna. Wow, it was amazing. There was a huge lineup of cars, but, everything moved quick. We had all of Candace's stuff in her room (with the help of 4 other students) in about 15 minutes. Then came the unpacking and shopping for stuff that she still needed.

So yesterday, she had her new student orientation. She said it went well and enjoyed it. Today, is the first day of classes. I hope everything goes well for her.

Randy said something rather profound when we left Kelowna after moving her in, is this harder on the parents or the students? I'm really not sure. I know it's tough on me! I just keep reminding myself that this is something she's worked hard for, plus it's something she's always wanted. Candace has always been a great student and this past summer she's been so excited about university.

But, it's still tough on Mom.
