First of all I want to say that I feel guilty about my absence from all of your blogs. Except for being extremely busy, and watching too much Olympics, I really have no excuse. I will catch up so hopefully soon you will be seeing comments from me on posts you've even forgotten you wrote, let alone posted. Ha!
Dave and I had a date on Saturday. We went out to an Indian restaurant (Classic Indian, which is delicious), and since we had a coupon, I had no compunction about ordering both my favourite appetizers, as well as a main course. And then all my food came and I was kind of overwhelmed.
Like most of the rest of Canada (seriously, read the article and remember a) there are only about 35 million people in Canada and b) the game started at 7am for me, and 3am for people living on the West Coast), we woke up early and watched the hockey game on Sunday before church. Some churches across Canada opened their doors for the game but ours was not one of them :)

My friend, Erika, apologized on her blog recently for being so weather focused. Honestly, I feel like almost every blog I read has been weather focused this past winter and, really, with the weather we're having, I'm not surprised. It feels like we are all in the winter-trenches together, carrying each other through until Spring. On that note, I hope you all are able to carry me through this week -- we're heading into the deep freeze again, starting today and continuing until the weekend. Wish me luck, and if you're having some Spring-like weather already, please please please send it my way. I'll send you some of the cookies I baked this past weekend in return. In fact, I'll even bake a fresh batch just for you. I feel like that's a fair deal :)
PS. Only 35 more days until New Zealand. I'm both excited (about going, being kid-free, and the warmer weather), and nervous (leaving Sam and Rachel for so long, although I know they will be fine). Yikes :()
