My sister-in-law (Hi, Sue!) sent me a message about a conversation overheard at their house today:

"My aunt does dragon boating because she's awesome."

Please, nobody tell my niece and/or nephew that I had to retire from dragon boating because I'm broken and not so awesome after all. I will have to do something even more awesome to make up for this.

New Template

Does this site look a little different to you? It does to me. I'm using a new template and seem to have lost the entire list of what I've been reading.  I did save the links but now need to update each one individually. I can't just do a copy/paste. Argh.

Going to give the new template a little try and see how I like it. 

In other news:  I can bike 42km without too much effort and can run 5km very slowly. Now if I could just push myself to swim 750m, I might be able to get somewhere. More on that soon.

March Break

Well, I didn't exactly take a week long break this March, but I did manage a long weekend away from home. Travelled by train to Ottawa on Thursday after work and spent the weekend with Nick and his family.

We could not have had better weather for a "spring" break! Friday started off cool and damp but by afternoon it was pretty dry so Nick and I went out and did a nice little 42km ride around Ottawa. Saturday morning we had breakfast at Canada's biggest Ikea store (and I didn't even have a chance to walk through it) and then we went to Fulton's Sugar Bush for a sleigh ride and taffy and lots of other maple flavoured goodness. And to end off, Sunday morning we spent at home, playing outside with the kids and the bikes and some bean bags.

The weekend flew by and I was home just before 5pm Sunday night. It was great to get away for a few days but it's just as nice to be home again. Pictures from the weekend can be found here.
