Number 4

Number 4

Hockey season just finished up today.   The league I play in finished today and the boys finished yesterday.  However, we are heading into Spring sports and this year the boys have picked, you guessed it, more hockey.  Both of them want to focus more on hockey, so they’ve chosen to play in a Spring … Continue reading

BELIEVING IN THE UNIVERSE..

BELIEVING IN THE UNIVERSE..

As I wrote in “Dear God”, my brother and sister-in law have been going through hell.  My sister-in law found out in November that she has leukemia and she’s been battling a tough fight ever since.  My brother and sister-in-law came to visit us last August and all was well, by November she was one … Continue reading

A CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK..

A CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK..

I’ve always been somewhat skeptical and suspicious of strangers.  I don’t trust easy and whenever I deal with sales people, I figure everyone has a story to tell or they are trying to rip me off.  This drives my husband crazy because he says I have to learn to trust at some point.  I think … Continue reading

AND SHE GOES TO BATTLE..

AND SHE GOES TO BATTLE..

It’s been a long time since I’ve posted a blog about my hockey team.  As most of you know I play hockey once a week with a women’s league.   I started last September, never played hockey before and the last time I skated probably was when I was 10 years old.  It was a … Continue reading

Hockey Night in Canada

Hockey Night in Canada

In the post “Bye, Bye, Great Pumpkin” I talked about getting rid of our orange family room.  I hired a painter and re-painted the room a calm and soothing grey.  Took me a while to put the room back together because once I removed everything from the room, I didn’t want to put it all back. … Continue reading

THE AIR IS DIFFERENT UP HERE!

THE AIR IS DIFFERENT UP HERE!

This past weekend I found myself in 100 Mile House, BC for an Atom Hockey Tournament for my youngest son.  I’ll be honest, when this trip was first mentioned to me I wasn’t all that thrilled about driving 5 hours for a tournament.  Then to add insult to injury, I found out my husband and … Continue reading

WOMEN AND HOCKEY!

WOMEN AND HOCKEY!

I thought it was about time for another post about my experiences with my hockey team.  As I mentioned before, I joined a women’s hockey team this year;  I’ve never played hockey and I haven’t skated since I was a youngster.  When I first joined this team I didn’t know what to expect and I … Continue reading

COUNTING MY DAYS!

COUNTING MY DAYS!

God speaks to me, yes he does.  Not in an obvious way and no I don’t hear voices, but he speaks to me through people.    It seems like all of my life things happen, strangers tell me stories, people come into my life and every time something  like this happens,  I’m left with the strongest … Continue reading

HOCKEY FOR THE CLUELESS!

HOCKEY FOR THE CLUELESS!

  This year I joined a women’s hockey league.  I’ve never played a sport in my life and I haven’t skated since I was 8 years old.  Quite the challenge and with my hearing impairment it’s even more of a challenge.  My very first hockey game I had butterflies in my stomach like I was … Continue reading

BAFOON IN THE MONKEY SUIT

BAFOON IN THE MONKEY SUIT

Last weekend, like all of our weekends, it was a loaded one.  Hockey practices, hockey games, painted a room, carved pumpkins, finished  Halloween decorations, made chilli for guest coming over Halloween night – just to name a few.  Sunday morning I went to my son’s hockey game for 9:15 am.  I’m sitting in the stands … Continue reading
