Weekend recap

Another Weekend has come and gone and we are left with the memories.
This weekend left me with a broken heart
My best friends Daddy got killed in a freak work accident on Thursday evening. My heart has been heavy for the family all weekend, so it was a sad one, the funeral is today and i wish i could be there with her, but i have to go home in 2 weeks for an appointment that i cannot miss. 
Friday was my day off 
I love Friday's- i didn't get to enjoy doing nothing on Friday though. So many errands to do 
I had an apt at 11 am that i had to leave just after 10 for, it was to meet with a financial officer for funding. My heart has been set on going to school for payroll/Accounting.
I didn't want to get a student loan unless i absolutely had to - 
thought i would get sponsored to do so with Employment Insurance. 
they only agree to sponsor $4000, course is 30,000- so unless i take a student loan or a line of credit- both of which i am not willing to do right now. Have my first student loan paid off so I'm not about to go another 30,000 in debt with the worst people ever. Student loan people are so hard to deal with. 
The guy who i met with told me i do not need any more education as i have enough and i have the experience of 10 years, so he can pretty much get me a job anywhere i wanted to work- so I'm hoping he can get me the one at Service Canada  (govt job), i am putting my notice in at the job i am currently at today.  it isn't what i want to be doing so I'm gonna leave, i am super stressed here as well. 
left there and went to the mall in search of shoes...
didn't find any shoes that i really liked, so ate lunch at mcd's and went home. 
We had a Fall Frolic at Brooke's school on Friday evening so from 2 pm - 9 pm i was volunteering there, was fun and met a lot of awesome people. Brooke came up and participated in some games
here she is doing wall climbing

i was so thrilled because in the silent auction there was a Boston bruins signed jersey of the greatest player who there ever was, he is my most favorite( makes no sense but i like it )
Here i am sporting the beautiful jersey 

yes! i am in love with this, it got auctioned off for $501.00, i wanted it, but wouldn't go that far with it 
when i got home Friday night- i finished painting Brooke's costume for the Halloween party at church. 
Took a hot bath, caught up on some emails, blogs etc and went to bed.
I couldn't sleep though, so i was up again til almost 2 am- i hate how i cant just fall to sleep, makes me feel crazy and then im tired and crabby all day.

Saturday- Husband was gone all day to a men's church conference. I didnt sleep late, got up and started cleaning, its amazing how dirty my house can get in a few days. i changed all bedding, did 5000 loads of laundry ( not really but felt like it), swept all floors, dusted furniture, cooked general chicken with rice for supper all before hubby got home. 
we then ran some errands to Giant tiger ( like Target to US residents), then i had to go to Dollarama( like Dollar tree), another late night, i get so frustrated when i cant sleep at night, pass along any hints or tips you may have to help me get sleep 

Sunday- we had church and then we had Donna come over for lunch, 
she brought delicious lemon Meringue pie. 
i was on nursery duty on Sunday pm- it was fun to entertain 2 babies :D 
Sunday pm- aftr church , us 3 went to Pizza hut- i was dying for pizza, so my cravings were taken care of and i have left over for lunch :D

that's about it for here....
