3 Days

Here I am right before an event that should be pretty intense and that I'm pretty sure I'll remember. I have been training for a few months for the 3 Day Walk Against Breast Cancer and it's here. I will be walking this coming week-end with thousands of other people to show our support for the research against breast cancer.

Getting to this point wasn't easy by any mean. I had to raise a lot of money and train, which meant waking up early on Saturday mornings and being a party pooper on Friday nights. This is the time when I thank Husby for being patient with me through it all.

I'll be back next week to give an update...I am pretty nervous right now, wondering if I have packed everything I need to camp and walk for 3 days, wondering if my knee that I have injured will behave and worrying about the fact that I haven't walked for 2 weeks because of said knee. I am exciting about what I'm sure will be an intense and very emotional week end.

Wish me luck!!

Something New

I frustrate myself. I love knitting blogs. Most of the time I don't read the content but just look at the pictures and enjoy. Some knitters are truly amazing...I only hope that one day I could knit like some of them. But this is not what is frustrating me. What frustrates me is that I AM NOT KNITTING.

I keep looking at items that I find beautiful, but I don't take any step towards getting it done...hell I don't even buy the yarn. Well actually that's not true anymore. I found this pretty pattern, don't you think is beautiful? And the name is French! I have bought the yarn for it, which I should receive soon. I know that posting about it will pressure me into starting it, and when I start something my Husby usually complains that I become obsessed, so there is hope that something will be knitted soon!!

Updates soon I hope, and a picture of the first sock of a pair that I never finished....

8 Secrets about me

I was reading Breast and Belly and decided to do the meme since I read it is:

Rules: People who are tagged need to write in their own blog these rules & the eight things. At the end of the your blog post, tag six people and list their (blog) names. Leave a comment on their blog telling them they've been tagged and encourage them to read your blog.

1. I dance in front of the bathroom mirror. It's something that I have been doing for a while and I don't really know why, but I always find myself dancing when going to a private bathroom....I never said I was normal.

2. When I see a sign in front of a store, I read all the letters separately and count them.

3. I have scoliosis and flat feet. I was told that one is not related to the other. My back hurts quite often and I have a hard time finding shoes that look good on my feet.

4. I talk in my dreams. Husby tells me that I have conversations in my sleep, and that he can't really tell in which language I am speaking. I remember one time my brother mentionning that I was speaking one night, and when I asked :" Well what did I say?" he replied, "I don't know you do it all the time I can't always listen..."

5. I don't really like talking on the phone. Sure I can spend hours on it with my sister or a really good friend, but if I have the option to see someone, send them an e-mail or call, I'll do it just in this order.

6. I could hold a conversation in 3 languages, French, English and to a lesser extent Spanish.

7. I used to ride a scooter when I lived in France and had an accident. It started raining and didn't know how to turn on wet pavement and slipped. Nothing bad happen except that I was embarassed and pretty frightened.

8. My family has a travelling bug. I have family members in France, England, Canada, US, and Africa, and this is only close family. Somehow we all end up in a different country/continent at one point or another.

I'll do like Breast and Belly, if you read this and feel like revealing some secrets go for it...
