Belated Happy Easter!

It has been quite busy! Even working just 2 days a week, this week and last... has got me running around like a chicken with my head cut off. Not a pretty picture! The boys are doing okay. Richard took part in the Elite football team tryouts for his league last Friday (4 hours of drills and scrimmage) and then went to his friend's sleepover birthday party. Well, he hasn't been the same since. Saturday, he came home and fell asleep at 6 pm and did not wake up until 9:30 on Sunday morning. Mathieu, on the other hand, has been all hockey and excitement. His team won their semi-final game last night and will be playing in the finals (a best of 3 series) starting next weekend. They will also be participating in a local hockey tournament. Also, I have registered him in a acting workshop starting in mid-April... Hopefully, hockey will be over by then because I think football and soccer will be starting their tryouts. HELP!!!!

My mom had us all over in her new condo for Easter brunch on Sunday. It was great. Luckily, my dad and everyone were very helpful and contributed to the culinary delight. Mom was great! I was lazy... and Richard was not well and stayed home.

My friend Ella had an appointment with Dr Sugarbaker in Washington today, and he has agreed to operate on her during the first week of April; so, next week... Hopefully, the RAMQ will come through for her as the procedure he proposes, the Sugarbaker procedure, is her only hope and is quite expensive.

Well, that's it for now. I'm off work tomorrow, and will hopefully make it to the gym to burn off all the chocolate I've been eating!

Take good care!

Loved reading your Blog. Sounds like you are too busy to work.... I am retired and the days fly by and thinking of work would stress me out. I am TOO busy.
Did Richard make the team?
Football is now the flavour of the season???
I have been following Ella's battle with the RAMQ and have my fingers crossed for her.

hi renee, long time no see... I just caught up on your last few blogs and am happy I did. I think of you more than you might know and feel so much for you and the boys. I think it's great that you all went back to Cuba, I'm sure it must have been bittersweet at times. I bought the Canadian Living issue as soon as it was out and enjoyed it so much, although it made me cry , and I knew the story. Grief is such a weird thing at times it really does hurt physically, the heart really does seem to physically ache. I felt after Trisha died that I could not stand anymore pain and of course there it was again. They say time heals all wounds and it really does and all we are left with are beautiful memories and you have so many of those I don't need to tell you how lucky you are. The sweet times you recall and write about for all to read are really beautiful and uplifting... keep it up girl, you're doing great even when you're down. Say hi to the boys and I swear one of these days when everybody isn't so busy, we'll get together. Until then love to you, from Julie and Harry

ps. the photos are great.
