Grandma is hugging my Freshman, Kelsey.
Here the lovely ladies are lounging by the pool before the mad return of school. It's rare for all 4 of them to be at home at the same time.
Hello Sisters in Iron.
I have not forgotten you although several days have passed without much action on the blog. My silence has come at the hands of Busy-ness! I have just moved 3 (yes three!!) daughters out of the house so that they could get on with their lives. My car is simply a moving van and my wallet has been emptied several times over. But I can report that Kelsey and Kiersten are safely installed at Queen's University. Kelsey is in her first year of Fine Arts while her sister is in her 4th year of Religious Studies with an eye to a post grad in journalism. Rachel is ensconced in Toronto and is in her 2nd year of studies to become a Naturopathic Doctor. I am exhausted from hauling furniture up flights of stairs, making decorating decisions and hooking up equipment - did I mention I am not technically inclined?? Yeah! Well I am not!!
It's awful to have so much quiet after having had such a busy summer. I hardly know what to do with myself - NOT!!! I have decided to attempt (I said attempt) training for a sprint distance triathlon - the fastest growing sport in the nation. I have been gamely logging miles and kilometers, skipping rope and swimming laps. I need a bike for the road race part. My old Schwinn won't do (LOL). Any pointers from experienced readers? I need help with the bike thing. EVerything was going well until just moments ago when I decided I would do a few dives into the pool after swimming laps and I suddenly felt something snap in my right calf. I barely got out of the pool and the pain is ridiculous. I don't know what I have done to myself but it hurts. I am icing it and resting it now .....
Okay enough words here are some pics to round out the story.
Love you all!
Keep it tight.
Your injured Sister in Iron,
