Bags are packed and we're set to go (again)

Many of us miss out on life’s big prizes.
 The Pulitzer. The Nobel. Oscars. Tonys. Emmys.
But we’re all eligible for life’s small pleasures.
A kiss behind the ear.
A four-pound bass.
A full moon.
 An empty parking space.
A crackling fire.
A great meal.
A glorious sunset.
Hot soup.
Don’t fret about copping life’s grand awards.
Enjoy its tiny delights. There are plenty for all of us.

Well...T minus 15 hours and Matthew & I are off to Florida for the weekend for a hockey tournament - - hockey in Florida? It does sound strange, although reading some of the Hockey magazines the boys have around the house I have been pretty amazed at all the areas in the US where youth hockey takes place: Louisiana, Alabama, New Mexico.

It has been a crazy day though, so I will be looking forward to getting on the plane and relaxing over the weekend. As the team manager of my older son, Robert's, team there were some last minute things to get done today and mailed out to get the team credentialed for the District Championships in March. So, just as I was scrambling around trying to get the team's notebook up-to-date, I also had some work things to get squared away before I left for the weekend...and then there was packing for our trip. I know that is sounds daunting and many of you comment on all the things that goes on in my life...but you know, somehow it all gets done as life continued to tick-on. We all do it, don't we?

But - the hockey bag is packed...the stick bag is packed...the suitcase is packed and my backpack with: the Ornament Swap Ornament, Family Sampler, Mary Wigham, LHN Monthly samplers and small travel scissors is all packed up...I am ready!

Until next post - take care and remember...
Live, Love, Laugh and Stitch often!

Lisa, I've wanted to ask something that doesn't especially pertain to your blog but don't see your email address in your profile, so I'll just go ahead and put my question here - we follow Blues and (local) Riverman hockey, but I know very little about the junior leagues. Anyway, do you ever come to Peoria, IL? If so, we'll definitely meet up at Owens Center! (and then I'll take you to lunch)
