Retreat-ed

This weekend I was lucky enough to be able to go on a retreat. It was a scrapbooking retreat, but it was really small. There were 5 of us, all women who know each other well. The retreat was in a cabin in Whistler, which was beautiful.

It dumped snow on us, which made our cabin seem even more remote and surreal.

It was very refreshing and relaxing to just get away from it all.

Of course, the kids had two extra days of from school – one for the Remembrance Day holiday, and then a professional day. So I came back refreshed and am exhausted already. But it’s all-good. I’m really glad I got to go.

I also got some great work done on our wedding album. It’s been over two years, and it really was more than time to get cracking on it.

The boys did relatively well. They had some free tickets to an advance screening of ‘Happy Feet’. They enjoyed it, but not so much the bus ride there and back, since I had the car. Coram had a big meltdown on the bus, and a passenger gave Steve a hard time about it. But he put her in her place and she sort of apologized. Gotta’ love people for their opinions.

It will be interesting to see how the boys do tomorrow, going back to school after such a big break. Fingers crossed it’s not a problem.
