We're looking for co-ed slow pitch players. We play once a week, Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:30 or 8pm, at RIM park. We are a true d level team, having fun swinging the bat, and not letting our many losses get us down. We have until March 31 to put a team together, that includes at least 4 ladies.
Today is our Baby Brackenridge (affectionately known as "Cletus the Fetus") official due date! I guess we start counting backwards from here. Although I think 02/12/2012 would be a good birth date, it doesn't look like s/he is coming today. Here is what I'm looking like at 40 weeks pregnant (in the baby's room!):
Anyhow, I think I'm still calm and patient and not trying to rush this baby along. I'm relatively comfortable and not feeling like s/he is going to make an appearance within the next day or two. This baby is going to make us wait, build up the anticipation, the excitement. Then again, I've heard a lot of stories from recently pregnant mom's about having no idea and then quickly going into labour and baby coming hours later. Oh for a quick and uneventful labour. Wouldn't that be lovely?
Ian's birthday is soon. He's always said he'd be happy to share his birthday with our baby, so maybe that's what it will be! Either way, I don't think they'll let us go more than 2 weeks over due, so this baby is coming relatively soon!
We're feeling pretty ready now. I've taken advantage of the last couple of weeks away from work to do lots of cooking and baking. The freezer is filled with meals (lasagna, casserole, etc.) and healthy muffins. The house is relatively organized, all the baby clothes and blankets are washed and put away and hospital bag is packed. Anything else we need to do to get ready??
Thank you very much to those who have been so generous in sponsoring me for my inside ride event to raise funds for kids with cancer. I've more than doubled my fundraising goal, but my team is about $1000 short of our team goal. So I'm looking for some more help. Please click following link. Any donations are very much appreciated.
I will be participating in The Inside Ride, a fun, high energy, indoor cycling fundraising event that raises much needed funding to make a meaningful difference in the lives of kids and teens living with cancer.
The purpose of this email is to ask you to consider supporting my fundraising efforts to help children and teens affected by cancer. Seventeen hundred children each year in Canada are diagnosed with this devastating disease, to join the more than 10,000 currently living with this illness and its long term effects. Although great improvements have been made, cancer is still the leading cause of non-accidental death of kids in Canada.
Through the The Inside Ride event, we will provide support where the needs are greatest, including funding of kids cancer camps, family support programs and research which contribute to inspiring hope and improving the prognosis for children and their families impacted by cancer.

An electronic tax receipt for your donation will be sent to you separately by email. For more information on how YOU or a friend can participate or host your own Inside Ride, please visit https://www.TheInsideRide.com.
Doesn't this house look like it needs some warming?
We want to share in the fun our new home has brought us! Please come for a visit.
The "Housewelcoming" party is on Saturday February, 5th. Stop by anytime after 2PM. Come for the afternoon, party late into the night, or just drop by. Either way, we'd love to see you and welcome you to our home!
Please don't drink and drive - we have room for out-of-town guests to stay the night. And for the locals, we'll have Waterloo Taxi on standby.
Best wishes only please. We are already so lucky to have a roof over our heads and such supportive friends and family. If your are so inclined, we suggest that instead of a gift, consider making a donation to a charity that helps shelter those in need (for example: https://www.roof-agency.net/ , https://www.habitat.org/support/).
It measures 44" in diameter, without the leaves, and comfortably seats 4. And, it comes with 2 large 20" leaves. With one leaf it will sit 6-8 people and with both leaves you can sit 10-12 people. Perfect for the holidays and your dinner parties!
We had our one year anniversary back in September, so time to pull down our wedding website www.lisalovesian.com
The wedding website will be remain live for a limited time (about 30 days), so have a look at it if you are interested. Or look at it again, as we do, to remember all the fun we had with our family and friends on our wedding!
We're a little sad to see it go, but excited to move on to our new family website here www.brackenridges.com!
