One of my hockey coaches also figure skates. Last night was her figure skate club Christmas production. It was fantastic. It was very cool to be a part of watching the kids perform, supporting one of my friends, introducing Hannah to what ice skating can be and also taking my Auntie to something she really enjoyed!

It did make me think tho, and realize all the things I missed out on by not knowing, or caring, what my family and friends were involved in and supporting them in the past 30 years. Piano recitals, football, wrestling, musicals, plays, tennis, baseball, all of it. These thoughts have been bobbling around for awhile, I'm not sure where they all lead, I guess to an awareness that its not all about ME.

How appropriate since my word for 2013 is "ego"...

One day at a time

Currently, I'm trying to take on just one day at a time. I can get so caught up in the holiday BS, I just want to take a break from it this year. Pause. See what's around me.

So far? Sickness ( nothing major, stomach flu piggy-backed very nicely by a major sore throat. Only one of us so far....). Some overtime hours, crappy, grey weather and feeling generally unhealthy. Nothing that won't work out, but ....
