Happy Belated Hallmark Day

Not only was yesterday ‘Hallmark Day’ as my husband and I so lovingly call it; it was the day I found out I’d be working for The Presbyterian Record as staff reporter, starting May 5th. Trent and I took care of six rambunctious children from Tuesday until Thursday, while their parents went on a retreat; after packing them off to school yesterday, I drove three hours to Toronto to meet with The Record‘s staff, then three hours home through a blizzard. It was a tiring yet fruitful day! Tonight Trent’s bringing home Chinese food and a movie; time to wine and dine! (We celebrate V-day on the 15th, fighting the corporate hand in our own little rebellious way) Mom and Dad have headed off to the Bahamas for a few days; Mom has always wanted to go there, so Dad ordered up a cruise for her birthday this year. I hope she’s able to remember it all.

    Congratulations, Em, on your new job post. How exciting is that!
    Isn’t it great to see more doors being opened for you and Trent!

    How wonderful for your Mom and Dad to be able to get away together for some rest and relaxation. When do they go?

    Take good care. May your week be filled with joy and expectation.

    Auntie D. and family

    Congratulations EM! I am so excited for you. That sounds like an awesome job for you. Will you be able to write from your home, or do you guys have to move to T.O.?

    I am glad that your parents are able to get away for awhile.

    love, Mel

    Good work Em! You always seem so busy and so full of activity. It’s great but I don’t know how you get it all done! This will be exciting for you!
