Today was a very good day for my girls.
Heather wrote and passed her beginners test for her driver's licence, Yeah Heather!!!
She was pretty nervous. But I knew she would pass.
It cost 125.00
10.00 for the test
40.00 for her 1st road test
75.00 for the actual licence.
Good thing she wrote it today, because tomorrow the HST comes into effect and I bet we would have got taxed on this. Grrr stupid government.
I remember in the olden days, it cost me 10.00 to right the test. You had 1 yr to take your road test, I think that cost 25.00. And you only had to take 1 road test.
Now you can't take your road test until 1 yr after you have taken the written test. Then you have to wait another year to take the 2nd road test. The price doesn't include your second road test.
It took us longer to wait in line than it did for Heather to write the test. And after you finished writing the test you had to wait in line again to get it marked. crazy.
So as Heather was writing the test I just stood in line to save a spot for her. Who ever thought that up needs their head examined. I child could figure out a better solution. LOL.
Ashley did her walk through for the job that she applied for. Well she got the job. Its not her dream job. But it will be a paycheck (11.00 per hour) and she has a list of things she wants for her photography. Plus hubby keeps teasing her that now she has to pay room and board. Mind you I'm not so sure he is teasing, LOL.
Tomorrow is Canada Day. And being the laid back Canadians that we are, we are changing the holiday to suit us LOL.
Hubby and his brother's asked the employee's if they would rather work tomorrow (Canada Day) and instead take off Friday to get in a long weekend. Of course they were all for it.
Now don't go hate'n. We are proud to be Canadians. We are Thankful that we live in a country were we can speak our minds (even if a lot of them should remain silent) and feel safe.
But living here our summers are short and we have to enjoy them as much as we can.
So I spent most of my day in my jeep.
-Picked up some photo's that Ashley got printed.
-Ran to Micheal's. Ashley needed something. Truly she did. But I did get some more crochet cotton :)
-Went to Home Depot for some things we needed to finish off some projects at our cottage
-Brought Ashley to her work walk through
-Took Ashley to her friends
-Took Heather to get her driver's licence
-In between all this, Kristy was bored and wanted to go home, so brought her home
-Picked Ashley up from Michelle's
-Cooked and ate supper
-Ran to mail the photo's Ashley sold
-Went and got camp groceries with hubby
-Went and picked up some flowers for camp/cottage
Came home and worked and watched a movie.
So sorry I didn't get my tutorial done today, hopefully tomorrow. But don't hold your breath.
Hope your Wednesday was a crafty one.
