Six more sleeps

That's all I have to wait until Harry Potter comes out. And this time when I'm leaving Costco with my book, I'm not going to flip to the back pages to find out what happens (yep...I did it last time and cried all the way home). Or at least I'm going to try my hardest not to do that.

Is anyone else getting it this weekend?

It's 11:30, Friday night

and I have three more badges to sew on Colin's sash before I go to bed so I can get up at 5:30 tomorrow morning to help him get ready to leave for camp. The things mom's do, eh?

I'm watching the Live Earth concert on CTV and Missy Higgins is playing right now in Australia. I've been loving her music. She is absolutely amazing! You can tell that she's popular because everyone seems to know the words to her songs. It's neat to see what music is popular in each country too. I'll be curious to see who plays in the rest of the concerts tomorrow. I'm sure the British one will be great, although Al Gore is supposed to show up at the US one, so I'm sure that will be exciting too. How great to be able to pull something like this off to make people more aware of the earth and global warming!

Well, I guess my fingers have had a little break now. I should get back to sewing. Have a great weekend!!

I hope everyone had a great Canada Day! Colin was at his dad's and he called me last night to let me know that Titanic was on tv and we talked about how sad it was that Tracey and Allana don't live in Vancouver anymore because we used to always spend Canada Day with them. I'm sure they can't stay away from Vancouver long though!!

I was just looking for a photo of Adam doing his half iron triathlon a couple of weeks ago when I found this photo of me at work. I needed a photo for a class I was taking from Kah-Mei at the POTP retreat of myself at work. So that's the truck I drive. It's new and nice! I love it! It's big too!!

So here's Adam racing a couple of weeks ago. He wanted to qualify for the Ironman Canda race in Penticton in August. Here he is waiting for the swim to start. Swimming is his least favourite part of a triathlon, so he's always nervous right before the race starts.

After the swim he goes on the bike ride, which I can rarely get good photos of because they are in transition and out of transition and gone on their bikes before you know it and I'd rather cheer for him than try to get a great photo of that. So I didn't get a good photo...just a blurry one that I won't inflict on you. But here he is after his bike ride getting on his runners for the run.

The swim was about 2kms, the bike was 80kms adn the run was 20kms. Here he is after the first 10km of the run.

So when Adam crossed the finish line he was pretty sure he hadn't qualified for the Ironman. But the next night he got an email telling him they had a spot for him! So we're heading to Penticton in August for the Ironman! I'm SO dang excited!! My man is going to be in Ironman!!

Well, it's totally late and I have to be at work early tomorrow. Have a great week everyone!!
