Default Thursday Morning

Morning Mates, from a lazy, hazy, Indian Summer day in Pictou County.
It continues warm and humid here, with some cloud and fog. Today's high should be a comfortable 22C or 71F.

Perfect weather for the Terry Fox Run taking place at the school where I work. I've asked if I could participate (and donate!) as I missed the county Run last weekend when I was busy in the garage.
In years past, I participated in the run (walk, bike or rollerskate) every year, usually with a kid on the back of my bike. I started the year after my dad died of cancer, and continued in his honour until somehow it was easier to write a cheque than actually run....
This year, it is a leisurely walk around a very pretty neighbourhood with a couple hundred kids, including those from my after-school gang, so should be a lot of fun. I am wearing my "On Deck for the Cure" Carnival T-shirt!

All of which leads me to think of Fran today and wonder how she's doing.
Todd, I hope both of you are hanging in there and fighting the good fight.
I'll be walking today in Fran's honour....

Good Morning CruiseMates!
Guess what's new? Not much really, but that's OK!

My kiddos have been feverishly cleaning their rooms due to the fact that they are having a long awaited sleep over Saturday night and I have thrown down the gauntlet. CLEAN HOUSE OR NO SLEEPOVER! My son and I have been discussing the arrival of his "manly scent" and how excited he is to have entered into this new rite of passage. Me on the other hand...I'm not so excited lol. Part of cleaning up his room involved removal of all his toys from his bed. So once the actual bed was exposed, he announced to me... "hey Mom guess what? My sheets and blankets smell just like my new "manly scent" and a big smile beamed from his face. He's so proud! . Naturally, I have lots more laundry to do... Oh joy! I remember when my brothers both acquired the same aroma... there was a brown cloud that wafted out of their bedrooms every time someone dared to open the door. It was kind of a cross between B.O. and the smell of a wet dog.

I explained to d/s that to whom much is given, much is required. So now that he has recieved "the gift" of the "manly scent", he will need to bathe a bit more frequently, apply some deodorant and we'll be changing his sheets more frequently... So no more toys in the bed. He is not happy about that aspect, whatsoever. I have never seen a kid so proud of the fact that he is now aware he smells.

So aside from that. Everything here is peachy keen. D/H has been in Pittsburgh since Sunday and he should be home late tonight. He is looking forward to a 3 day weekend since he'll be off Friday.

Not much on the agenda for today aside from cleaning and the usual stuff. Hope you all have a great weekend. Sending more prayers and positive thoughts Todd and Fran's way. I hope they get some answers soon!

Good morning from a rainy, seventy-eight degrees, in Virginia Beach. Since the gym was closed for Simchat Torah, I slept late this morning. Downpours are supposed to continue in the Tidewater area all day. Rollerdonna, good luck in the Terry Fox run. Terry Fox was a true hero and many people have benefited from his run across Canada to raise funds and awareness for cancer. Our thoughts and prayers continue for Todd and Fran. May all my fellow cruisemates have a wonderful day!
