The Breast Team Ever

Just to let everyone know. This Sunday (oct. 1) I will be participating in the CIBC Run for the Cure. There are a group of us in Ottawa, and Robyn Bright is our team captain. (her husband Noah came up with the name!-i believe that is nurses humour coming through-)
I will be walking 5 km with Catherine Lisimaque.

If you would like to support me and research to find a cure for breast cancer you can donate online here. Or you can find me and donate in person. A lot of people have been giving around 5-10 dollars and it adds up quickly.

Thanks for your support!!

cleanliness is next to...

Thomas and I did a power clean last night, and our kitchen and bedroom look immaculate, our living room however is a different story altogether.

But I am awake early as per usual and the cleaning bug is still biting, so it will get done shortly after this post.

A week and a half of school is done, and it has been so lovely to be back in school. I found out that my first placement is at CHEO (the Children's Hospital of Eastern Ontario) on a medicine floor with brand new babies up to 7 year olds. oh glory be! it is my most favourite age group. It takes me back to the "mother goose days" at camp when I would have 10 staff kids trailing behind me all ages 7 and under. Lovely.

I've also thought recently about gatting back into cutting and gluing. I can still hear the A's (amber and andi) saying "she's just cutting again, she's still just cutting" when they got home from school, or my dad saying "pick all these bits" after a mass cutting bonanza. He always hated those bits!

anyways, I did a little collage, which I will post here on a later day, and now I want to do a big one, but it takes way more planning and playing before you can cut and glue on a big piece of paper(as Rachel Malena knows), so we'll see.

So time to let the bug keep biting and clean this living room

first day of school...first day of school

Thom and I watched 'Finding Nemo' the other day on CBC and it reminded me of how fun it is to be excited for school, and how glad i am to be excited to start this year.

So, today is the first day of school, my first class is at 1.

How glad i am to be taking notes, and learning new skills and remembering old ones and oh it will be good.
also i get to see mel and mary-anne and karen and it feels like forever since i saw them.

Hayley, i love you, i got your letter, and you are a beaut. don't be sad about school. be glad. because you are so smart and you study so hard and i am so proud and inspired by you. i'll put up a sign on my desk that says... 'do it for Hayley' and then my marks will be rockin' as well. Soya said i was winning the hair gorwing contest, but now i am the loser of the world with the shortest hair, but i love it so i can deal with being the biggest loser.

i am going to apck my bag, and get my house cleaned for my lovely hubby who is now bringing in the dough so i can retire as a sugar momma, at least for a little while.
