Go Red For Women - "It's Our Hearts. Our Choice"

National Wear Red Day is Friday, February 6th - wear your favorite red outfit or accessory this Friday and raise the awareness that heart disease is the number one killer of women. Some companies will actually have a "go red day" where employees donate $ and wear red...the money going to the American Heart Association.
Aside from the $ and the wearing of red...it is also a reminder that it is important for us women to take time and take care of ourselves. Just like remembering to take time and have a mammogram, please remember to have your heart checked out - to eat a healthy "heart" diet and to move around for 30-60 minutes (or more) a day.

Snipets of the other life threads....

I "enjoyed" a very crazy hockey weekend and spent yesterday organizing another one coming up. Last weekend Robert's (older son) hockey team finished in 1st place in the playoffs and advance to State Finals, which starts this Friday down in Los Angeles. So that means another trip, another hotel and more juggling of the "2-kid-hockey-family" for next weekend. As to not bore anyone reading this, our plans for next weekend include me driving down to LA w/Robert on Thursday after school lets out (it is about a 7 hr drive). I will be there Friday to do my "team manager" stuff and to see, what should be, one of the more challenging games. I will also be there to see the Saturday 7am game and then will jump on a plane to get back home. DH is flying down Friday, late afternoon, leaving Matthew (youngest son) at a friend's house. On Sunday...DH and Robert will drive home, assuming that they make the championship. If your confused...just know that I am happy about the way things are working out for this weekend - for I will be able to be apart of the State Finals celebration for at least 2 of the 4 games with Robert and then be able to be home to be with Matthew & get organized for the upcoming Quebec trip...which is coming up on Feb. 10.

BTW...I am suppose to be choosing 8 special blogs to pass on the Friendship Award too. I have been thinking about who I would like to nominate and I come up with so many that it is hard to come up with only 8...so, while I hate to sit on it right now, I would like to - and then full-fill my duty around Feb. 14th.

Hope everyone is doing well...remember...Live, Love, Laugh and don't forget...to stitch on! Lisa
