I may not be a mom but...

...I'm the only single Bible-college employee I know who hangs out with a naked dude every day. Did I mention he kisses me?
Here's Bo...pre-potty training, pre-hair chop, pre-"I too tired". Some days I think it's safe to say we miss the Bo from those pre-days. And sometimes I miss the hair. It was fun. But I'm sure it will be re-born one day, when he's in tune with his emotions and doesn't use the hair as sabotage. Right, Car?

In the meantime, it's pretty awesome to see how he's growing up...and he's always checking in:
"you a-wight, Kaleen?"
"is Char cwy-ing?"
"oh Jane...she's soooo cute!"

(p.s. Jenne - this one's for you! :))

Until I return from Australia....

My heart is warm, because:

  • I have a "sister" like Carleigh
  • my friends are refreshing to spend time with
  • I have a family who travels to Australia together (we leave in like, 50 hours!)
  • the opportunities for what my life could look like are on my doorstep
  • my two bosses insist I take time for me, and recognize my efforts
  • AND...I will soon have stories for my blog...

what hockey makes gary say...

With aggression: 
"get the pork chop off the ice"

With a break in his voice:
"LOO - OK!"

When the refs called a no-goal that obviously should have been a real goal:
"Should have been four four ....FREAKING FRUITCAKES"

My favourite moment was when we got a goal, Gary hit the sofa, and Carleigh peed a little where she was sitting on the floor. (not really).

Beer intake is higher tonight than normal.

Please Canucks...pull it together. Our household begs you.

what it really means...

I totally believe that verse that says "God sets the lonely in family"...I got to see some of my "extended family" last weekend. It was good.

I miss you guys.
