And exhale...

I feel like I've been holding my breath ALL DAY. I didn't realize it until I let out a big breath about five minutes ago.

My baby girl is going through a growth spurt right now and seems to have some growing pains tonight. So, I ended up spending most of the the third period of the hockey game in her room rubbing her back. I did happen to come out just in time to see the tying goal.

And I was back in her room for the overtime. I decided if I couldn't hear anything, I was just going to assume that the game was still tied...

And then a horn honked. And then two or three horns honked. And a little almost asleep voice said "What's that?" And then our building erupted in cheers.

And I knew. The Canucks won. And all of a sudden my body relaxed and I started to breathe again. And J went to sleep.

And this just sums it up....I love this picture! Nashville is here on Thursday...here we go again...


  1. Is that a cut out of Vince Vaughn or is that someone with a mask...in any case it is BRILLIANT!

  2. It's a cut out...green guy #2 is holding it! It's great, huh!

  3. I came over to give you a comment on your CAP comment -- and this picture gave me a much-needed chuckle. Thanks for it.

    Ennyhoo back to my original reason for popping over here -- how to store a stroller. Stroller hangers! Not too helpful for non-collapsing jogging strollers but just in case here's one link to the first one I spotted on google. http://www.amazon.com/StrollAway-Stroller-Storage-Hanger-Chrome/dp/B001GPBJP8

    I didn't have one... I cheated and stored mine in the pickup truck.


  4. Feh. I'm not really anonymous, I'm just blogspot-challenged.

  5. Hi Mary!

    Thanks for the link...unfortunately I think ours is too big - it's a Phil and Teds and it folds, but it's heavy...I did store it in the trunk of the car for a while, but while it fits nicely, it wasn't all that easy to bring groceries or other things home...We're allowed to store bikes on wall hooks in the parking garage, so I might invest in a bike hook and store it down there...now that our daughter is 2 1/2 we don't use it as often as we used to...

  6. PS Thanks for visiting...glad the green guys made you laugh!

  7. I loved the "Fred Clause Sucks" shirts they wore between the periods. HA HA!

    I hadn't realised how tense I was about that game until the Cancuks won. It felt like every muscle in my body relaxed at the exact same moment. Talking with a friend today, it wasn't even about making it to the second round. It was about finally beating the f*ing Hawks in the post season!
