This weekend we played baseball in the snow to raise money for Cancer research.  The games were on Saturday, today is Monday and my quads are still screaming!   I know I have to get in better shape but really, this was ridiculous!   On Sunday I could barely walk and now on Monday, although I made it through my workout, my Quads are still nagging at me.   So far I have been able to step away from the A535 but if this keeps up, I’ll be smelling like a Senior Citizen in no time.

The weather was cold but the sun was shining and once we got moving, it was enough to keep warm.   While we didn’t win a single game, there were tons of laughs and new friends made.   I love events like this, events where it doesn’t matter who you are or who you came with, everyone ends up talking together and having a good time, there is no judgment on your playing skills (that I know of)  and luckily, Kenny’s baseball abilities made up for my inabilities so together, we came across half decent.

All money raised from the tournament goes to The Ride to end cancer.  Our event fees sponsor Sylvie so she can take part in the bicycle ride from Toronto to Niagara to raise awareness and funds for cancer research.  So, that said, I feel honored to have contributed to such an amazing cause and I wish Sylvie all the best.  I can’t imagine how fulfilling and humbling  it must be to reach the finish line.

Looking forward to next year!


I don’t know what things are like where you are but here, EVERYONEISSICK!

In the past week we have had one sleep over guest come down with the stomach flu the day he went home.  Yesterday we had a  pop in visitor who informed me she’s been puking all weekend and now her 4 kids are puking.  Today a friend had to go to the hospital and asked if I could watch her boys…. The boys had a cough and a cold.

My friends are always welcome in my home but germs are not!  I love Lysol and have used a years worth in the past 5 days but in all honesty…. I think its inevitable


Comfort comes from different things for different people… For Maisie, comfort comes from her “Blankie”   Blankie has had to be cut in two so that Maisie’s mom can make sure it’s washed daily.
