Home, Sweet New Home!

We've been busy over the weekend. We've been unpacking and sorting out what should go where and what we need to get to make our new home just right... There are lots of new things to get used to; like a dishwasher - but I think I can handle that! The front loading washer was a bit scary at first, but my sister has one and she came to the rescue. Not so difficult after all - it just looks intimidating. Now I need to unpack a few more boxes; but considering that the movers finished unpacking their truck at 4:30 on Friday afternoon, I figure I'm doing very well. I must admit, however, that I did get a lot of help. Among others, my sisters came in from Ottawa to help, as did our good friend Luce.

Today, Sunday, my sisters had to leave early in the morning to make it back for my niece's violin concert. As for myself, I had to get Mathieu to his soccer practice and ensure that he was set for the soccer association's BBQ. I picked Richard up from his friend's and we headed off to St-Lazare for a football game. Back home after that to find Mathieu, register Richard for the soccer house league, detour via Sports Experts to buy some soccer cleats and chin pads and then off again to Mathieu's football practice. I guess I don't need to tell you that I'm exhausted.

The boys seem quite happy about the new home. I might actually have to equip Mathieu with a GPS system so that I can keep track of him. He's making friends fast and furious and is quite enjoying exploring his new neighbourhood. Although he has sent quite a bit of time here as his best friend and Richard's best friend live right around the corner. This could prove to be very interesting.

Unfortunately, I haven't downloaded any photos yet, but I promise to get around to it in the next few days.

Well! That's it for now.

Take good care!

Renee, I am not sure if you will remember me but, my name is Dawna, and I am a good friend of Sharon's . I think of you and your wonderful boys often and I just wanted to let you know that you are a VERY COURAGEOUS & STRONG woman. You have already been through so much, and you are preparing for yet another tough journey with Mathieu's surgery tomorrow.
I do believe Tony will be watching over you both and keeping Mathieu safe. I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.
With much admiration.

Hi I have been reading your blog and I wondered about Mathieu's surgery. Does he also have colon cancer?? Oh, I hope not. Bless all of you. Sue@:
