The Amazing Race 5 Update!!

Amazing Race 5 Update!!

The Finale Legs

It's all about...  two shows, back to back and reaching a really rather exciting conclusion.  Amazing Race is, without question, my favorite formula show and I had a great time watching this finale.  We get Christie and Colin being totally evil Borgs, and we watch as the other teams take turns driving them up the wall... Brandon and Nicole? well, let me just say, Nicole, lying in the snow on the side of a Canadian mountain, bawling her head off... was worth the price of admission. The Rosie’s and Chip'n'Dale played good games and as I type this... I have no idea how I'm gonna explain both shows... :D

Thursday, September 23.

Ok... another glorious day in the neighborhood. Fall is creep'en in... putting on it's cape and wizard hat, so to speak. It's clearly keeping mother nature damp... and the trees are starting to think about how much fun it will be to leave leafy green behind and dive into the fiery colours that turn our part of the world into a vast improbable canvas of beauty.

You wish you could see fall here if you live in perma summer somewhere south.

~ to send some very sincere loven thoughts out to katie8471, tonya, snwbrdette, sirenity... and who am I missing? that have relatively new little bablettes at home keeping them jumping, hoping, snoozing, feeding, and well... being mom. Hardest job ever ladies and you are absolutely wonderful.
~ for time to compress and hurry my friend dpaul007 along the path to ... being closer.
~ and to take just a wee moment to make koo'ing noises at kumi... because she's really quite precious.

And BIG BIG BIG props out to topazgrrl ... who has gone into labour... with her next little baby sneaking out ... hopefully today. :D
My hopes are with you and your family for a healthy baby and a comfortable mommy!! :D

We're having a bit of a time with darling Ed. This is the guy that got "bit" by this other asshat kid in SK last year... He's in G1 now and doing great... but he's got an aggression thing to work out. His teacher is an amazing woman who is totally down with the concepts of catching flies with honey but remains firm in the face of a room full of kids. You gotta absolutely bow down to grade school teachers. We're sticking to the reduced sugar deal (kind of got away from us over of the summer) and reviewing a daily log of his "in school" behaviour from his teacher. Of course, the poor little guy still manages to be in the wrong place at the wrong time yesterday and gets bowled over by some big kid running through the hall... "Hello Mrs. Corto? Yes... we have Edward here in the office... he's had a bit of a fall..." :( (believe me... all is well... he shakes stuff like that off... he's the rock! :D)

Any ways, I just wanted to say...

There is no end to the trials of parenthood,
Every one is but a pittance of a price to pay
For the joy that can fill a life when shaping one.
Love truly knows no limitation.

Have a great day guys ...
... and be nice to somebody.
It's a great investment.

the life and times of the people I get to love.

the word sneaks out with an exhale.

to soon, we turn in haste...
confidence poorly constructed with emotions.

emotions are wonderful...
they make us real and they make us feel.

emotions are dangerous...
they replace thinking with reacting.

if it took you a year to build a relationship...
why would it make sense to tear it down over night?

it takes all summer to make a perfect apple...
eat it slowly, and savour each bite.

earn your confidence.
