We're Official!

Well, after 3 months of living here we are finally official.
We changed our Driver's Licenses and Plates/Registrations.
This now feels more permanent...
What, transporting 16,000 lbs. of personal belongings wasn't enough?
Let's just say "Service NB" and the "MA DMV" are like night and day!

They smiled and were honestly there to help...
We might be in The Twilight Zone...

The Great Wall of REXTON

The next time the Google Earth satellites pass over Rexton the gleaming sheen of the manufactured stone wall will be recorded for posterity.

The Great Wall of REXTON can be seen here...

It will be a long winter waiting for the grand opening of the new Robichaud Party House...

SPAM,,, they got me...

Spam is one of those pesky things that you simply have to deal when you have e-mail.
The spam generators always try to fool you by using little tricks of the trade like “How’s it going pal…”
You think it might be your friend and you open it to find “Buy this hot stock ticket now”,,, and you delete it…
The subjects are always bad and you can sniff them out a mile away.
Well, a few days ago they got me… I can’t believe it but they finally fooled me.
The tag was so good and innocent looking that it had to be real. (see photo)

This must be a serious new worthy article, CNN, ABC, NBC, CBS…
What news organization dug deep and exposed this tragedy of epic proportions?
Is the modeling industry is so spiteful and malicious that they are forcing out a young girl who is clearly well suited for the job???
How will it turn out, will she need to find a new career as a flotation device?
Who knows…

Without a moment to spare I had to find out the rest of the story,,, how does this poor girls saga turn out.?.

So,,, of course I opened it… (see photo)

Yup,,, SPAM…

The lesson learned,
Sometimes the sensational headline is just junk.
So disappointing…

A day in the Life of Cléa...

CiCi is adjusting to life in Canada with nothing but smiles!
She's almost walking... stands up and hangs out but hasn't made the leap to go forward - its so much faster to chase Buddy on her knees!

We installed her new car seat - in "Cowmooflage" print - trés chic!
She loved facing forward and giggled all the way on her maiden voyage.
As the sniffle season is upon us she went and had her first flu vaccine.
Didn't flinch, not a tear... we have a tough one.. well, she is Ukrainian-Canadian... what else would you expect...?

Winter has officially arrived according to the snow on the ground!
We go our first few centimeters on Sunday
and it's snowing again right now!
Good thing we brought the snowblower...
Global warming???
Now we just need to put on our snowsuits and get out there!

Our new life in Canada

Our new life in Canada, here are some "tidbits" to share.

1) there is no shortage of beer - as demonstrated in the last post

2) everyone here is very friendly and polite - shocking to a Bostonian

-The techs even take off their shoes for service calls....-

3) "stay at home mom" is definitely a hard job - but, I love every minute of it!

I think of everyone we left behind and do miss you all.
Currently I'm missing my talented hairdresser Michael!
Is it crazy to fly back and forth to get my hair done?
