Tuesday, May 10, 2011      8 comments

My sister-in-law sent me this in an email. It's great advice. I thought I'd share it. I've seen it before but I don't know the author. Anyone out there have a clue? To celebrate growing older, I once wrote the 45 lessons life taught ... Read more
My Mother's Day Treat
Monday, May 09, 2011      10 comments

On Sunday afternoon I went to my daughter's house for the promised Mother's Day massage. I was really looking forward to it. I'd been a little stiff and sore for a few days. When I arrived I got a big surprise. I got another shellacking. M... Read more

While on a recent trip to Grand Forks, North Dakota, on the recommendation of Spark friend COMPUCATHY, I purchased one of Bob Harper's Kettlebells. I chose a 10 pound one. It came with an introductory DVD. I tried it and I love it. What a grea... Read more

This is the long awaited, much requested (well, twice anyway) ringette banquet blog. First a little background. The recreational league I play in has been around for 30+ years. It was started by a group of ringette moms who wanted to get activ... Read more

The Agony of Defeat So I promised pictures and a blow by blow of our end of year tournament and it’s been more than two weeks since it ended. That’s the story of my life, (more than) a day late and a nickel short. For the uninitiated, ringe... Read more
Blogging Once a Month is Better Than Nothing. Really!
Thursday, April 07, 2011      6 comments

It seems like I haven't blogged in forever. I am stuck at school waiting for our open house to start at 7:00 pm so I might as well make good use of my time. Spring break has come and gone since I last blogged. I spent my time reading, swi... Read more

This has been a pretty busy week. At school everyone is getting a little weird because parent/teacher evenings are next week and teachers and students have been working overtime to finish their growth statements. There is the definite scen... Read more
I LOVE Zumba!
Sunday, February 27, 2011      11 comments

I spent all day (8:30 - 5:30) in a Zumba Basic instructors workshop. It was great. We were active for about 300 minutes all told. My instructors name is Andrea Sandhu. She came in from Toronto to do the workshop. She was awesome. So upbeat and m... Read more
Today was a Better Day
Friday, February 25, 2011      6 comments

Today I ate pretty well in spite of the fact that it was treat day. Friday is the day when the teachers who are responsible for cleaning the staff room that week bring in treats for the rest of us. It's a pretty expensive proposition as there ar... Read more
Meeting my Expectations...Not!
Thursday, February 24, 2011      5 comments

I missed my yoga class on Monday. I missed my Zumba class on Tuesday. I ate way over my calorie range on Wednesday. I haven't blogged since Saturday. Saying I'm falling down on the job is a bit of an understatement. Circumstances have con... Read more

It's Friday!
Friday, February 18, 2011      2 comments

I've had a good week. The weather has been fine (until last night) and I have been able to take my In Motion classes outside. Yaaay! I'm running out of active things to do in the classroom. We played games in the snow. Ice and snow add a whole n... Read more
Better Late Than Never
Wednesday, February 09, 2011      6 comments

I'm being such a slacker about blogging. I said I'd do it every Friday and that only lasted about a week. But better late than never I guess. I've played ringette twice so far this week and I've been feeling really good. My hip hasn't been... Read more

Yesterday was a good day for the staff at my school. We had a professional development day. It was a welcomed break for both staff and students. Both groups needed a day off from the routine of school. January can be a really long month. A... Read more
