Hubby and I had an early morning date. While the kids were at school, we held hands on our way to... vote! Yep, Canadians hit the polls today. And this liberal-leaning hottie (who is always shrouded in a healthy dose of self-esteem apparently) demands to have a government that won't screw up her beloved Canada.
My Canadian peeps, not sure who to vote for? Check this...
Now, get out there and do it!
During my first ever Reiki session, my bff told me I had butterfly wings. No wonder I had such joy and good fortune with my hula school whose logo was... a stalk of celery. Kidding! It was a butterfly. :)
Here at Life Candy, in case you were reading my posts with your eyes closed, my header was a tad leafy and devoid of butterfly:
I've also slapped up some new borders and changed my welcome message. I've tried to keep it simple and clean, took out some elements, changed the footer from 3-column to no-column, took out some crap, etc.
Let me know what you think!
Lam joined the running club at his school. Yeah, I was shocked. He's my future high-tech mogul, not my future Olympian. Meh, I guess it shouldn't matter how he makes his millions, right?
Anyway, the club starts up every spring to prep the kids who want to enter the Manitoba Marathon (to take place on Father's Day) so they won't throw up, have a heart attack, collapse, and sue the school for "torture disguised as physical fitness".
On the 27th, the marathon organizers held a kick-off event called Jog in the Park for the 26 schools taking part in the marathon. I -- as cool, awesome and supportive mom -- volunteered to come long and supervise.
When all the kids were called to jog the short 2.5km circuit around the park, I -- as happy and energetic mom -- decided to jog along.
About halfway through, I -- as huffing and puffing mom who hadn't jogged in years -- thought "wow, this was foolish" and seriously considered asking one of the cute-and-very-fit gym teachers passing by to give me a piggy back ride back to the finish line.
On marathon day, the Grade 3s have to have an adult run with them. Lam asked if I could do it. I -- as crazy and delusional mom -- am actually considering it.
I was already up. It was 12:30am, so I thought "okay, I'll just stay up and watch the wedding." At 2am, I thought "wow, this was foolish" (yes, 2nd time I've thought that this week), set the VCR to record it, and went to bed instead.
SO GLAD I DID, because now I can watch it over and over. I can enjoy the little glances they gave each other, the loving smiles, the "you look beautiful" when he saw her for the first time that day, him holding her hand in the carriage, her doing her best to be proper in front of his family and to make him proud, and OMG, two kisses on the balcony!
Can you tell? I'm a total smitten kitten over these two...
