One of these weeks, I’ll wish that I can start my blog saying that it’s been a quiet couple of weeks, but not for now! I guess I would complain if we had nothing to do, but I think finding the balance between being so busy, and having nothing to do is difficult – we’ll find that balance some day.
We had another football tournament recently, this time in Red Deer. Thankfully, it wasn’t as long a trek as the drive to Fort Mac – this time it only took us about 90 minutes or less. It was another early start (6.30am), but it was okay once we were on the road. The weather was very deceiving – it was overcast and windy to begin with, but then the sun came out and was very strong for some parts of the day.
It’s been another crazy couple of weeks since I last wrote! It’s always a good complaint, but we have found that the tiredness is becoming more regular, so perhaps taking a step back now and then to free up some time may not be the worst idea!
We had another dental appointment recently, and to be honest I was dreading it before I even left the apartment! I have such a genuine fear of the dentist, but the dentists are much more thorough and gentle over here, which really helps me! I had to get one very deep filling, which actually could have developed into a root canal, had I not gotten it sorted earlier. more »
So it’s been another busy couple of weeks since I last wrote, it’s getting to the point where having a relaxing evening is a rarity!
Basketball has since finished up since I last wrote. Unfortunately we didn’t finish on the best note, I believe we came bottom of the league!
We decided to go to Sunshine, another skiing resort, in early March, and it was such an awesome day!
