I'm actually nervous about riding my bike to work. I've done it over 150 times yet today I this is how I feel.
Life is pretty great right now. It's not without it's stresses for sure, but overall it's wonderful. Melody has a skating competition in Chatham, Ontario this weekend. This will wrap up her first competitive skating season. She's really enjoyed it and wants to do it again next year. I'm glad she's found this. She's very athletic although she often doesn't see herself that way. Chloe and a friend might come down with us so it will be me surrounded by females. The story of my life :) We will also be going back to Chatham on Sunday. We'll be meeting [...]
Where to start...where to start? Maybe I will start with the awesome bike ride I had yesterday.

That was when I was at the peak of my fitness. [...]
We are just about to embark home from a weekend away. We went to the Chicago area for a cheerleading competition. I was so impressed with Chloe's team's performance.

I'm so much more attached to the process than the outcome. I really don't care what place they come in. I care how much effort and teamwork they put in to get to the big day. That's what matters [...]
March is here and spring is in the air. Well, actually spring is not in the air at all as we're having a few of the colder days of the year. However, it looks like we only have a few days left of winter. Which means...I should be able to start biking to work next week. That is so exciting for me! We're heading to Chicago this morning for a cheerleading competition for Chloe. We're going to take a few days on either side as none of us have been to the Windy City. It's going to be great to [...]
