Monday Drive-By

This weekend was an exciting one for our little Threepeat!  He had his first ever hockey game and he absolutely LOVED it!!

Last weekend was the hockey assessments (they assess the kids' ability to skate and play hockey in the hopes that the teams will be somewhat balanced).  Hubster is an assistant coach on his team.

Saturday was their first practice and then Sunday was his first game.  So stinkin' cute!  He came off the ice, raving about it, especially, I presume, because they won 6-3!  It was just awesome to see my littlest out there enjoying himself!

Sunday was also my Mom's 65th birthday, so she came over for the afternoon and stayed for dinner and cake.  We had missed her so much because she was on a cruise for 12 days and this was the first time we had seen her in over two weeks!!

Someone hurt my feelings over the weekend as well.  She said something that didn't need to be said in order to make herself feel better about a situation and it stung.  I'll never understand why people have to be downright mean.  I'm over it now, but my opinion of her has changed dramatically.

Middleman had soccer tryouts on Saturday in the yucky rain.  We are so pleased with the team he plays for and are pretty sure he will make the team again...thank goodness.

Our dryer has been broken for a week.  The repair guy was finally able to look at it on Saturday and confirmed that the heater is broken...to the tune of $110.00 plus labour.  Sigh.  He has to come back tonight to actually fix it.  Hubster will have mountains of laundry to catch up on since it's been over a week without being able to do it!  The silver lining of him not having a job right now, I guess.  ;)

I have a busy week ahead of me with lots of lots of changes at work.

I hope all of you out there have a super week! Pin It

I won't ever forget

September 11, 2001...a day that will forever be engraved on many thousands of hearts.

Almost everyone remembers exactly where they were, who they were with and what they were doing on that awful day 12 years ago.

The shock...the fear...the disbelief. That day seemed to last forever.  2,996 innocent lives wiped out senselessly.  The ripple effect touching thousands upon thousands of others all over the world.

I was home that day, having just returned from a trip to Las Vegas.  I flew home only hours before the chaos began.  I remember feeling so sick at the thought that it could have been us.

I couldn't stay away from the TV, but having a 2 year old and a 5 year old at home, I had to shield them from the unfolding horror.  I turned to my computer and reached out to my dear online friends through parentsplace.com.  They were such a blessing to me that day and in the days following.

It is such a vivid memory that it seems like it just happened yesterday, but it has been 12 years.

My thoughts and prayers are with every single person affected by this tragedy.  May we never, ever forget the countless heroes who gave everything they had that day...many made the ultimate sacrifice.

God bless you all. Pin It

And they're off...

Grade twelve (I didn't mention his name)
Grade Nine
and
Grade One.

My goodness, how CUTE are all the kids at Threepeat's school this year.  They implemented a dress code (navy blue pants (skorts are an option for the girls) and either a white or blue collared shirt).  I LOVE it.  They all look so nice out there in the schoolyard!

Middleman was a little nervous this morning, going to high school for the first time, but he looked sharp in his uniform as well.

Two in high school...Wow.
