Homechild


Last week I saw a great play called Homechild. Fabulous! Went with two women from work and one of their friends. Had a very good dinner ahead of time (followed by a fantastic dessert!) and then to the play. It is a Canadian story about the children that were sent to Canada from England and Scotland (primarily) and were then used for work. In some cases it was more of an adoption (a good thing!) and in some it was more like slavery. I find it sad that we don't learn about these things in school. Almost 10% of Canada's population can be linked to these kids - don't you think that's important? I do. In case you're interested here is the site for the play: http://www.canstage.com/2005-2006/season/homechild.asp.

And now for something a little different and much more happy...

I'm counting down the days till a friend of mine comes in from Calgary! I can't wait!! We are going to have a great time!!

And then there is the countdown to my roadtrip buddy!! WOOHOO!!! 71 days baby!!!!!
