Week One ...

We hit the road last Friday morning and one week later ... about 176 hours later ... we had traveled over 3,800 km, been in 4 provinces and 3 time zones.

My hubby had sung in 2 full concerts, 1 special Sunday morning appearance, 1 World Vision Artist Associate luncheon, 1 GMA Showcase and spent a day in a studio doing TV tapings.

We had stopped and visited with friends we've only met through e-mail in North Bay, my Aunt and Uncle in Winnipeg, our friends, The Wilson Family, in rural Saskatchewan and lots of artists at different venues.

We ate at Wendy's, McDonald's (x3), A+W, Mary Browns, Subway (x2), Swiss Chalet, The Olive Garden, Drifters, The Keg, Caseys, KFC, Red Lobster, Montanas, a catered luncheon, Tim Hortons (x2) and Starbucks (x??)

We stayed at Travelodge, Voyageur Inn, Best Western, Comfort Inn, Howard Johnston (x2), and Days Inn.

Yesterday my hubby had a meeting with the musical director for the musical he will be involved in beginning at the end of next month. 7,000 tickets sold out in 5 days! He's not only going to be the guest soloist, but he is also doing some arrangements and vocal choreography for the choir. He meets with the choir for the first time tomorrow.

I've managed to keep the kids on track with schoolwork, keep laundry clean and read a few books. I've also realized that 1 laptop with 4 people is not enough!

Sounds crazy, huh? Welcome to my life!

So, for those who want to know how it's going ... great!

So is this a better "date" than the wedding?

I don't envy your eating out.. after the first two restaurants.. I'd have had enough. Get me to a grocery, I'll eat fruit and veggies for the rest of the trip!

but if you have to.. try Great Canadian Bagel.. makes for a nice light snack, or lunch..

you all are a pretty amazing gang! sounds like the kind of fun you would want to have for a week or two -- not 2 months! so much for the intimate get away for your anniversary, eh?

Hahaha Sombra I was thinking the same thing when I read this post.

Hope you are having a great time despite the busyness.
Have been reading Savannah's blog as well and do tell me what does the blue thing for her hair really look like? Is it that bad?
Blessing to you and the family.
Miss you.
