GREAT news! TUSAL & Ready to Run

While I was sitting down to write up this post I got the best phone call ever, the caller ID showed my parents house, and it was my Mum calling from HOME!  I am so happy and excited that my Mum got discharged from the hospital today!  She has been improving and getting stronger and more stable in leaps and bounds in the last week.  I feel like 200 lbs has just come off of my shoulders!  There's still a long road ahead but this is movement in the right direction!!!

Gosh with the pace life has been going out I'm surprised I didn't forget to post for this month's TUSAL.  Thank goodness to the handy calendar and reminder I have set up on my phone!


Its fall here, the leaves are turning and starting to fall.  Its like a switch had been turned off once September started and the colours are quite lovely right now.  There's not a lot that's been added to my Ort Jar this month, because family comes first.


This Sunday is the CIBC Run For the Cure, a 5K run/walk and its happening all across Canada at the same time.  Its a very powerful event to raise money for Breast Cancer Research.  Boy am I ready to run!  Thank you to the support of many of you out there who have made a donation and helped me reach my fundraising goal of $1000.00 this year!  An amazing feat considering what's been going on in my life, and it also proves the true power of Social Networking because all I've had the time to do was fund raise via e-mail, facebook and this blog. You can still donate (help me KILL my goal), its not too late simply go here to make an online donation.

I want to say a big thank you to my many friends out there!  Your support through my Mum's time in hospital, and my fundraising efforts and MORE!  Thank you!
