Tuesday Tidbits

I must apologize! I didn’t provide an update on my “procedure”. All was good – and they don’t believe the endo has traveled into my bowel – yeah! And like some of you shared, the procedure is really nothing. The prep is quite uncomfortable, but that is the worst of it.  They put you under, you wake up less than half an hour later and you can’t tell anything has happened.  So if you have to have one – don’t fret. Just drink the juice and rest for a few days. So now on to laser lap #4 on June 21.

Alex has been providing a lot of random hugs recently – that makes my heart swell.  Often the hugs come when we are playing mini sticks. If I score a goal on him, he runs to me, cheering, and then gives me a big hug.

It’s started. Holes have started to appear in the knees of Alex’s pants.  He is often quit rough playing hockey, taking dives etc; and he likes to play football, wrestle and the like, causing the knees to wear out of his pants.  3 pairs in the last month.  I need to go get some patches I think…

Alex is also displaying some real signs of being an only child.  He is being bossy and demanding – we are working on it.

I’m reading “The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner” by Stephenie Meyer – it’s the novella that goes with the Twilight books.  Not too bad. I finished reading the Art of Racing in the Rain – a great read – emotional, but not really about the dog passing (don’t worry – its in the first chapter so I’m not spoiling anything), I didn’t end up reading We Need to Talk About Kevin… it wasn’t the writing style that I like.

Yesterday I finished Season 1 of Downton Abbey. You are all so right – highly addictive. Such a good show. The only problem is that I’m #18 on the hold list for Season 2… that’s probably a 2 month wait. Think I’ll be visiting the rental store this weekend.  I also watched Life in a Day – the video made up of videos from around the world all filmed on July 24, 2010.  How amazing! I laughed, cried, cringed… but was overall moved by the simplicity of the film and the message about how even though your day may not seem like anything important is going on it really is making an impact.

And for those who are in love with food tucks… on May 6 there is a Food Truck event in Stratford!!  If you are interested in information on the festival let me know – or search Savour Stratford Food Trucks on Facebook.
