finally, an update

The past few months have been extremely busy and time has literally just flown by. We managed to sneak away for a few days at the beginning of December which was nice but it seemed that as soon as we got back-it was time for another holiday. Christmas was hectic but since my family decided not to exchange gifts and only to spend time with each other...it really brought back the real meaning of Christmas and took the monetary pressure off. We had a wonderful brunch on boxing day at my mom's and couldn't have asked or received a nicer present than spending time with my family. Christmas day hosted our traditional family Christmas dinner at my aunt and uncles. My cousin's were home visiting from Cambodia and it was nice to catch up and find out all of about their life living there. It certainly make us appreciate all that we have living here in Canada. They brought back little angels for everyone...these angels are beautiful and have a special meaning.
Dinner was tough this year because we miss my uncle but we know he was there in spirit and allowed aunt Cathy to gain the strength to visit for a couple hours. My grandmother was also truly missed at Christmas because she was unable to attend dinner due to the stage of her alzheimer's .

At the end of January, we had a fabulous brunch at the The Old Mill in Ancaster to celebrate my mom's birthday. My mom, sister, brother-in-law, our good friend Marilou, and myself all were there to honour an amazing woman that i am fortunate to call my mom!!! The food was astounding and every one thoroughly enjoyed brunch! I love celebrating my mom's birthday because it gives us a chance to spoil her.

I've been receiving a lot of emails from people inquiring as to what competitions i will be entering for 2009 and to be honest, i can't answer that question quite yet as I am currently undecided. I had taken 4 months off training at the end of 2008 and just started back at the gym in January. Until i see how my body adjusts to reintroducing training, i won't be announcing any competition dates. I have downsized a bit and I am excited to see what my "new" physique will look like for this season however, since I have downsize a bit, i am a little more comfortable with my "off-season" curves now .

Things are still really hectic in our lives at the moment but i will try to update more frequently.

It's mom's birthday today!!

As a child you walked before me,
To lead by example.

As a teenager you walked behind me
Looking out for my back and being there when I needed you.

As an adult you walk beside me
So that, as two friends, we can enjoy life together..

Happy Birthday, Mom
