....well not ever, but for at least three months. You can keep track of Me, Eric, Sean and Joel by visiting Dueck's Do Europe! It's going to be great. I am leaving you with some pictures I recently took. They are mostly my dogs, but they are fun. Some are my dog's in their Halloween costumes, on the way to the dog party, at the dog party, looking guilty. I love the last one of Paris, it is soooo pretty. Oh, and the scrabble board is Eric and my last game we played the other night. Check out our awesome words, see how many new words you can pick out! I won by the way!

A Three Dog Life by Abigail Thomas

I just finished this book, and thank goodness. It is about a woman who is coping with her husband's severe brain injuries after he was hit by a car. It is depressing and weird. For the first few pages I just wanted this book to be over because it was so hard to read. It is kind of random and pointless. It is a memoir, so it is writting sort of like a diary. It is nothing like the last book I ready, Marley & Me, who's author was a great story teller. It does get better towards the end, and I even laughed out loud at some parts. But I still wouldn't really recommend this book to anyone. I bought it thinking it would be a charming story about this woman's life with her three dogs. Parts are, but this isn't worth it. You can borrow it if you want!

What's Up

I go on here to post and then everything leaves my head!...

Saturday I slept in... sooo nice... and then we went to Evan and Renita's wedding. It was nice, and also really short!! Then we had a bonfire at Dahlen's and played SingStar. I have some good footage of that!

Sunday we went to the Great Manitoba Dog Party at Assinaboine Park. It was fun. There was tonnes of dogs there. We were constantly stopped by people wanting to see the puppies! But we sold one! Devon went to a really nice young couple that lives in Winnipeg. They are going to have so much fun with him. I was sad to see him go, and Jean Luc is all alone, but he needed a place that would give him lots of individual attention, and that's what he got. That night we got home and paid a visit to Evan and Renita's house.

Last night we finally sat down and made a rough plan for Europe. The calender can be seen at our travel blog Dueck Do Europe. It was rough, but it is nice to have some sort of a plan. Now I am trying to learn some French so I can try and get along while we are in France. It is kind of rough! I don't remember anything from high school. Maybe it will start to click when I am there. I put the CD lessons on my ipod and I am bringing the lesson book with me. I should get started now!!
