Getting ready for a vacation can be so exhausting!
I know. . . cry me a river!
When we booked the vacation, we looked at Grant’s schedule and that was about as much thought as went into the decision as to whether it was a good time or not!
I failed to think of what leaving this week would do to Darren! I forgot about some things that may throw a snag into things for him, so be sure to help him out if you can! Any photos or stories that you could send to him would be more than appreciated! I think communication between here and Cuba isn’t quite as easy as some places, so he really will be on his own!
I also forgot about my commitments as Telemiracle chair! Not the best chair who organizes a Taco-in-a-Bag sale and then leaves town! Last I heard, there has been a great response to the sale, with most kids making sure they are bringing someone for lunch. It will be a busy day in the hallways of the school during that lunch hour! Thanks in advance to everyone who is planning to come.
I am looking forward to attending my second Telemiracle, this time in Regina. That is such a great event and it is so amazing to see the workings behind-the-scenes.
The other commitment was curling. We had to get a game in before we left and then had to worry about the one we will miss when we are gone, well, worry about Amanda worrying about our game! Then when we get home, ‘cause we wouldn’t want to get bored. . . we are off to my very first Bengough Open Bonspiel. I have been to many ladies spiels, but my schedule hasn’t allowed me to make it for quite a few years. So off to the open we go. Wish us well, I can’t wait. I really miss playing in more bonspiels. I love the atmosphere, and the pie!!
I spent a bit of time today at the school to capture the 100th day celebrations! What fun! Kudos to Mrs. Elder, Mrs. Dyck and Miss McLean for coming up with the great ideas! I sampled some of the baking at the bake sale. Great job to all of the parents and staff who donated baking.
There was some great looking stuff. Jo Marit even had little cakes with chocolates on top that spelled out “100”. Fun!
It was great to see our school kids raise money for Abigail, whom you read about it last week’s issue of the Triangle News. Abi will be thrilled to hear that kids from her former school are thinking of her and reaching across the province to help her and her family out.
Abi will be starting her treatments by the time you read this and will begin a very trying 14 months. Keep her and her family in your thoughts and prayers.
Is it wrong that I was a little happy that the temperatures got a bit more winter-like before we left? I agree, a bit wrong. . . but if it makes you feel any better, 3 out of 6 days are forecasted to have rain/cloud in Cuba. Can you make a little wish that I see the sun and I will make a wish that once my plane is in the air, the temperatures will be back to +9° for everyone back home!
