His First NHL Game & Daddy Road Trip

5th April 2012

The husband surprised our eight year old son with a daddy/son road trip to Ottawa on Tuesday night to see the Senators game – his first NHL game.

He LOVES everything hockey right now. It’s all he thinks about and he reads NHL books every free moment. He has this uncanny ability to remember facts and stats and he can also tell you something about any and every player in the NHL.

His joy and excitement for the sport is really fun to watch.

He had such a great time at the game and even made a friend, another little dude sitting next to him.

Of course, being an eight year old, he prefers to tell you all about his fun trip himself.

I think we got the best seats in the house! The game was AWESOME. I also made a friend at the hockey game.

It was so fun!

It got really physical. There were a million penalties and fights!

I got a tshirt at the hockey game and hockey cards.

It was SOOoooooooo AWESOME!!!

The face says it all, don’t you think?

Week Three

5th April 2012

Here’s how I did this last week:

Woo Hoo.

I haven’t had a Diet Coke or Starbucks or any coffee or caffeine since before March 26 – 11 Days! That may not sound like a big number, but it’s huge for someone who drank a ton of both, daily.

Since quitting both, and cutting out starches and junk and things with sprinkles and other things that make you salivate, I’ve had zero heartburn, zero bloating and I want to sleep again.

Bye insomnia.

Yes, I still dream of cold Diet Cokes, and cupcakes – all the time. And yet, I haven’t indulged once – it’s a whole lot of chicken and huge salads and tons of veggies for me. Also, water is the only thing I’m drinking, except for the occasional mineral water.

I feel really good, and maybe even proud of myself and it’s been ages since I could say either.
