Ontario Budget 2007

Finally, a good news budget that will see the minimum wage raised in this province to $10.25 per hour over the three years. My only complaint is why wait three years? The working poor in Ontario need help NOW!!!

For highlights of today's Ontario 2007 budget click on the link.

Overall it appears to be good news for the people of Toronto, in my humble opinion.

Bridal Showers

We've all been to wedding showers, and inevitably at some point we all have to throw them. The last time I had to personally plan a bridal shower was two years ago for my dear friend Lisa's wedding!

The planning was a lot of fun, and since I am very details oriented took care in picking out the wedding shower invitations. I wanted the shower invitations to be beautiful, and a reflection on my friend's own tastes.

If you are planning a shower or suspect you might be in the near future you might just want to check out this website site that specialises in bridal shower invitations. They have a large selection of really beautiful bridal shower invites at competitive prices.

Shower planning can be a lot of fun, and thankfully there are a lot of online resources like the site mentioned above to make it easier.

The Outlaws Are P-ing Me Off

The former in-laws forever to be known on this blog as the "Outlaws" are the grandparents to the kiddos. While they no longer affect me directly (thank goodness) in any way, shape or form, they do affect my kids therefore myself as well.

The reason they've gotten me so angry is that they are giving the middle kid a very hard time. Not because she's strung out on drugs somewhere, or taking off for days at a time, because she doesn't. Oh no, they disapprove of her plans to go to law school. Yep, the kid has the gall to want to become a lawyer!!!!

You would think as grandparents they would be proud of her high marks, the fact that she was class valedictorian, that her high school guidance teachers have encouraged her, and told her that her marks are good enough to pursue a law degree, but their wisdom ALL lawyers are shysters and therefore she must be one too! Sadly, I'm not kidding...that is how they apparently feel.


Thankfully their opinion does not matter enough in her eyes to change the path that she wishes to follow, but of course it bothers her, these are her grandparents after all .... :(

I just wish these people would have one kind word for her, instead of constantly attacking the profession she has decided would suit her best every time she must see them.
