the boys cried for 2 days when we got home
"we miss the lake mom"
did 400 loads of laundry
and went back to work on the 4rth
Zack had outdoor hockey practice & parents were asked to skate
I used my ass as a zamboni 5 times
but oh my word it was SO fun!!!
while we were at the lake we skated on the river
I got a puck in the knee at our hockey game
It was black & blue but scored a few times :)
and shocked the crap outta a few with my skatin skills
It was awesome to be outside with so many of our friends & family
for the last month
we ate continuously
laughed loudly and
enjoyed our time together SO SO MUCH!!!!

I hope your holidays were awesome

I spent a lot of time thinkin
about those lost
about friends gained
about challenges faced
and personal victories
to 2010 my friends!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I completed my first lo of 2010 tonite
