|Meeting Erin, professional Snuggler|
Looking back on the week now, the house is a disaster (don't tell health Canada), the laundry is in piles (clean at least), the walk and driveway did get shoveled when needed, I did spent a minimum of four hours a day at the hospital and the kids were all fed and loved. Sounds like success to me! I do have to admit that I might not have been in the happiest of moods throughout it though, I'm just sayin! Thank you Tonda for the mid-week dinner and treats, it was a great help!

It has been a brutal week but a rewarding one too in the sense that I can do this, I just can't do it ALL. I'm sure T and Ry are in for more 'grumpy Mommy' but hey, this house doesn't clean itself ya know (um yeah, I did just say that Mom!). We did have a ladybug in the kitchen today as well, maybe spring isn't too far off? I'm not holding my breath on that one though, we should still have a pretty serious amount of snowfall still.
The week did have a pretty spectacular end to it tonight though (I'm talking as though it is Friday as the kids are off school tomorrow), the boys had a theatre group in residence in their school this week so we got to see the 'play' the kids wrote and performed tonight. I have two words to describe it "Hi Mommy" in the middle of lines is the BEST! So very proud of both of my theatrical boys, they must come by it honestly! It's all from Mike I swear (Ha ha ha for those of you that know my very low key husband!).
|T's big role|
Our third Calgary Blood Drive is already in the process as well, it will take place on March 24th. Our spots are filled up already I believe but you can always call 1-888-2donate to join us. For those of you that have already donated in the past few months in Braeden's name, can you please mssg (or leave a mssg on here or FB) me to let me know again so that I can get a more accurate count please? I believe we are close to 30 donations now but would love an accurate number heading into our third drive.
So I've also made the decision this week to go big or go home when it comes to spreading the word about the positives and necessities of blood donation, I've contacted the Ellen show with the hopes that she might do a small piece on it. I figured that I really have nothing to lose! So what if it never gets looked at, I can say that I've tried! If any of you want to help me out in this quest please feel free to write her a short email talking about the cause, message Ellen and/or post on her FB page and who knows? Crazy things can happen if you put yourself out there!!!
