oh oh…

I’m sick.  I have a fever, headache, sore throat, stuffy nose… 

I’m getting myself medicated so cross your fingers that I will be better by Tuesday!

On a good note – I think we have pretty much everything we need for the trip.  Today we got a power adapter for the plugs, some more gifts – Team Canada tees and hats for the foster family children and husband, and a battery operated alarm clock (thanks for the tip Karen & Kevin!)  Oh, and I got my hair cut and coloured yesterday – a real boost!  And I’m done work!  Woo Hoo!  Ouch that hurt.  I need to go to bed.


We almost have all of the gifts to take bought.

For the Social Worker a pewter pin of a Canadian Goose and a “mint smoothie”
For the doormen a small box of chocolates each
For the nursers / SWS staff a larger box of chocolates
For the Foster Mom a silk scarf with a native Canadian print on it of 3 chickadees – one of which is flying away and a box of chocolates.

We also plan to get Habs tees today for the rest of the foster family and I want to get some tea for the foster mom too.   I’m also considering a book of photography of Stratford – but I just have to find it…  So depends on the time we have left.

The chocolates are from a company called Rheo Thompson’s Chocolates that is located in Stratford.  The chocolates are made here – and are AMAZING!  If you ever come to Stratford be sure to get some.

It is hard to decide what exactly to take.  There is nothing that can compare to the gift we are getting.

I cannot believe we leave in just 2.5 days!
