Today I had my third treatment it was fine. I am feeling alright now, I ate some chicken (thanks Nissa) but not alot of room for food yet. I will sleep most of it off and hopefully feel better tomorrow.
Darren's ball team is walking in the Walk for the Cure in my honour so we have begun to sell pink baseball hats. And with the help of a few good sellers we have sold 75 hats. Don't worry we are ordering more you can get one through me or at the ballfield on Thursday nights. All the proceeds will go to the DRY Fund. Thanks again if you have bought one.

It has been a little while since I have blogged. But not much has happended. This round has kinda made me tired and I have been napping each day for a few hours. i was able to go to Ty's feild trip on Monday which was great for me I was just a mommy not a teacher it feels great to have some of those moments now at school. It is nice to go and be a parent.I miss school everyday, I love what I do ans being away lets me know how lucky I am to do what I love everyday. Yes it is hard some days but what good things are not hard sometimes.
Today I wentto the doctors witha friend to have a prenatal check up. Onmy way how I thought why is my face hurting and I realized I was smiling so much my face hurt. I have not smiled that hrad in a while. It got me thinking what things trueluy make me smile or truely make me happy. So here is my list, make your own list.
In no particular order.

1. To hear a baby's heart beat (that's what made me smile today)
2. The way my children greet me after being at school all day.
3. Hearing my children laugh, belly laugh.
4. Watching a child do something for the first time.
5. A BIG snow storm, the kind your stuck at home and can't go anywhere.
5. Listening to children talk, when they think noone is listening.
6. To hear someone is pregnant.
7. The sound of the bat when a ball is hit hard.
8. Sitting quietly with my husband.
9. Watching my boys play with their Daddy.
10. Spending time with my friends.
11. Hearing an "old" song on the radio, that reminds me of my youth.
12. Winning... at anything really.
13. Having a nap in the middle of the day.
14. A good cup of hot chocolate.

I could go on really if I think about it but I guess this is a start. IT is helpful to remember what makes you smile when sometimes you feel like there is nothing to smile about.
Today I SMILED. I hope you do too!!!

I am home from the Relay for Life walk. It was a very unique experience. I had no idea what was going on so I went with a crazy idea Iwas walking around the Hill. But it turned out we were inside the fort. Which was really cool. Idid not releize until we were all done and packing up that we had spent the night inside fortrese. The relay it self was fun everyone took turns walking and napping. The kids had a ball. They walked, they ate, they played then they crashed. I had a little nap but they played music and games most of the night so it was a little loud.
They start the night off with th e"Survivors Lap" which was really moving, people of all ages walking together. We started walking and walking and waliking and walking we walked alot.
About half way through, they lite the way with lumanaries in memory off those who have died and honour of those who are still fighting. All the teams walk the route in silence. It was very powerful and overwhelming for me.

We finished stong and wet. Great time, we are already talking next year!!!
