Today is Family Day in Ontario. It's a provincial holiday meant for families to enjoy some time together. Unfortunately, there are a lot of families out there who are not having a happy relaxing holiday today. Some of them are very close to us, including my friend whose family is gearing up for her post ovarian cancer diagnosis hysterectomy and my friend Megan, who is STILL in the hospital after the emergency last week. Oh, and, Little A's friend who is still in the hospital, along with his mom, who has been basically living there the past few weeks.
Of course, there are also many others dealing with crises, or who simply don't have the time (they still have to work today) or money to do something special, never mind put food on the table!
Just another reminder of how fortunate we are. We've had a great weekend. I had clients Friday night, Saturday and even yesterday, but Saturday Adam took the girls skating while I grocery shopped in the afternoon. Yesterday he took them swimming while I taught my spin class and then trained a client, and last evening, Little A went for a sleepover at my in-laws while Big A and I had our first ever Big girls' date night. Adam, the kook, went to the office with his free time, to get extra work done, then came home and did a run on the treadmill. Big A and I made fruit popsicles, did her kids yoga DVD, and then made homemade pizza and ate it watching Monsters Inc. At 8:30pm, a half hour past her usual bedtime, I was falling asleep and she was still full of energy. Ha ha!
Today, Big A and I are getting long overdue haircuts and then we are taking my friend Megan's 2 youngest kids with us to the LEGO movie. Hopefully, this will give her husband some time to himself to get things organized for the school week since he is all by himself until Megan is discharged from hospital. Oy!
Have a great day!!
