Jo and I have often thrown the idea around of getting out of dodge, moving out of town, just do something DIFFERENT to shake things up a bit. Boy oh boy though, during flu-times, sticking close to home seems like the best idea out there. Grace has been battling it since last Tuesday, and is off again today. I started a new job in the new year, and really can't take much time off to be with her. My house has seen a steady rotation of loving relatives, coming in to care for my little sickie. How lucky is that? If we were somewhere else, other than here, we would be up the creek without a paddle. Grateful.

I met the fantastic team of Chantal and Moira yesterday at hot yoga. I have been trying to meet Chantal for a long time now. I also just realized that I got into this blogging business because of her - her blog was the first one I ever read, on my first day back to work after my second maternity leave. I was like, huh? People write about their kids? Their family? Random bites from their life? I wanna do that too! And so, the blogging journey began. Bet you didn't know that, did you Chantal!
Chantal appears to be as awesome as I predicted. And she is tall. I was a little scared she might fall on me during tree pose. Tiiiimmmmmbbbbberrrrrr.....(kidding). We met detoxing our systems, I hope we can meet again and put some toxins back in our systems!

I did NOT know that you started blogging cause of me, but I am honoured. You're a pretty rockin' blogger if I do say so myself!

I have to say, I was also afraid I would fall on you during tree pose. I think being fearful of that kept me straight up!
