Campbell is loving hockey! Posted by Hello

After every practice they award a "sport of the game" award to the player who tried the hardest that day. Well Campbell won it the first week they started with it, and they have tried to award it to him 3 times since. He gets really happy, but we have to remind them that he has already receive it. LOL He isn't the fastest kid out there, but he is having a blast and is right into it.

Snowman and Friends Posted by Hello
Patrick's principal got in contact with the family of his classmate and they are all safe and inland in Sri Lanka. PHEW! The school wanted to do some fundraising for tsunami victims, and since one of our own families is already there the school is sending all the money they raise to the family's Roman Catholic church there to help fund their local relief efforts.

My heart is hurting for my friend. She has been going through HELL and it just got worse. Her husband has been battling Acute lympboblastic leukemia. She just emailed me tonight and said that she and her sister are flying off to the east coast to be at her mother's bedside. Her mother has battled cancer many times already, but this time it has gotten the better of her. She has pneumonia and doesn't have the strength to fight it. My friend has been so positive up until now, but I fear this might be more than she can handle right now.
Computer woes. It's happening again. Spontaneous crashing. I've been madly running my AV software and my freebie anti-spyware and nothing is coming up. UGH. I'm so tired. Too tired to stay up and fix my computer. Who does this to my computer?

Well we slept through the alarm (which was set for 2 hours too early) and woke up at 8:30 am. School starts at 8:50. Amazingly we got dressed, ate breakfast and brushed teeth and got there by 9! Not the best way to start the day. I hate waking up and getting going like that, I always feel so frazzled for the rest of the day and never get anything done.

I stayed up too late last night and 3 of kids had a late night too. Campbell fell asleep early at bottom of my bed. Kira was up later than usual, I lay down with her. She nursed and I drifted off to sleep, until Matt came to go to bed, and she woke up and wanted to play. Patrick is worried about his friend who went to visit family in Sri Lanka. He isn't due back until later this month. The teacher has tried to contact them to make sure they are safe but hasn't heard anything. So Patrick tossed and turned until at least 11 pm. And Damon, well he will use any excuse to stay awake. Usually he is the last one awake and I just have to sit and watch tv or sit here at the computer or else my movements will keep him awake.

I'm counting the sleeps to March Break.

Eyes, we have eyes. Click on PUPPIES!
Okay, I have thick and slightly curly hair. So thick that I've never met anybody with hair that is thicker. It is as thick as it looks and twice as heavy. My hairstylist is a really talented man who can work miracles on most hair. I went to him thinking he would work his magic and tame my hair too. Instead he told me that I had the thickest hair he had ever seen and there was no point in working against it. He told me that layers would only make it puff out more, this is true. So he told me that I need to keep it long to weigh it down, so I've been onto something all these years.

Have you ever seen hair this thick?
yes, her name was Flicka
