So, I came home last night, put on my pajamas, relaxed on the couch, watched some Grey's Anatomy Season 2 (I'm trying to prepare myself for the beginning of Season Three this week), and I fell asleep!! It was great!! Then I went to bed at around 3 am. I got up this morning at 8:30, went and bought some cream cheese and coffee, and came home and enjoyed my Cheddar Swiss bagel and cream cheese and coffee while catching up on the last week of General Hospital. Now, I'm here blogging, updated iTunes, and wasting time, when I really should be tidying the house!! There's an airshow here in Summerside this afternoon, and I believe tomorrow afternoon that I'd really like to check out. I plan to read some of my book. In general, I'm just enjoying my time alone, although I do miss Bevan a lot!!
Oh, and for any of you Lost fans out there, check out www.lostpedia.com. It is Wikipedia, but with all Lost information - great way to find out about connections and theories. Anyways, enjoy your weekend, and I promise to blog again soon!

The rest of our weekend consisted of:
1. Eating Mussels: see previous post for details. After this weekend I've tried 10 of the 21 varieties. I've tried rating them, but I've come to a conclusion that they're all delicious.
2. Eating a Deep Fried Mars Bar at the Frosty Treat in Kensington. Yes, that is an actual Mars Bar, dipped in batter and deep fried, then covered with ice cream, hot fudge and peanuts; ie: heart attack in a dish. But oh my, are they delicious. Mel and I behaved ourselves and shared one.
So, all in all, we ate a lot!! Way tooo much. So I guess I better make my return to the gym tomorrow after my weekend hiatus. Saw a link to this on Bevan's Blog and thought maybe I'd try it when I go:
I think it's pretty hilarious and amazing.
So, with that I'm going to wrap up my 78th post. I know, that's pretty pathetic for an entire year of blogging. In my defense, however, I've never kept any other kind of a journal for nearly this long, so I'm quite happy with myself. I just looked back on my posts from early September last year and it's so interesting to compare last year to this year. For example, gas prices right now are 1.009/litre, compared to 1.30 last year. (although this is still a pretty unstable thing, they seem like they could shoot up again at any time). Last year was cool in early September, and this year it has been cold since almost the beginning of August. It's been a very different summer this year with Bevan working for Special Olympics rather than Rainbow Valley. He's had weekends off and we were home waaaay more often (which was much harder on the pocket book now that it costs us $59 to go across on the ferry, or $64 if we buy an assured loading pass). My resolution for year 2 of blogging: to post more often.

Yes, we are flexing and beeing foolish!! And before we left, we told the owner we'd be back tomorrow, which I know is probably true; sad, but true.
We went to Charlottetown for a little while today as well. We checked out Old Navy, Micheals, and the Wedding Place. Mom and Dad are here, too, but they're going home tomorrow, and Mel's staying until Monday, and we're going to scrapbook and make cards tomorrow and Monday. It's so great that it's a long weekend. That means just a 3 day week next week. We have Kathy Anne and Steve's wedding next weekend, and then our planned weekends are over!! The summer has been busy, but good. It just passed much too fast. Anyways, I'm off to bed now. More pictures from the weekend to follow.
Oh, and Bevan reminded me that I didn't post a response about the Hawaiian Chicken - it was DEEEEElicious. It had lots of curry and chicken and veggies. Bevan even ate the veggies!! I'll post the recipe in the next couple of days.
