Hello to all those you read my blog.
I just thought I would just wish you all a very belated Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I haven't decided if I am going to make any new years resolutions yet. Hopefully, this coming year I will be able to live it, by learning from my mistakes, and I have made alot lately. I'm ready for a new year, and hopefully a fresh start. Anyways, thats really all I wanted to say.
Hope you are having/had a wonderful holiday!
God Bless

I need some prayer

I thought I would update again, since I am in need of some prayer for some new difficulties in my life. I am currently coachless, due to various reasons. I have struggled alot this year, and now, I feel a little unworthy. Anyways, I just wanted to ask you for prayer as I need to figure out what I am going to do, and where I am going to go from here.
So, please pray for me, and God Bless You.

I decided I would update...already.
I have been pondering about what I am going to do next year, and It's almost official, I'm LEAVING!!!, I was going to stay, but it has come to my attention, that I am not necessarily needed here, so I'm off. I thought It would be harder to leave skating, but due to a rough start, I'm finding the thought of leaving almost satisfying, but at the same time, bitter-sweet. I don't think I have had such a stressful, trying start to school/skating in my life, and I have grown so much through it, some good, some bad. I have learned who my real friends are, and what my true talents are, and where I am appreciated. It has been a hard bunch of lessons to learn, but it has been good for me to learn them.
On top of my on going skating frustrations, It has been a long week due to family illness. On Thursday Morning my Grandma took her final breath and went to be with Jesus. It was a bitter-sweet moment. I found today very hard to get through, but with the help of my friends, and God, I made it through.
I just ask that you pray for my family as we continue preperations for the funeral, and try to continue life with out our mother, grandmother, and sister.
May God Bless You Richly!

Love is when . you miss him
even before he leaves;when you
could listen to him talk all night and
never get tired of hearing his voice
When the sound of his name will
send chills down your spine
and you see his smile
the second you
close your

The little things in life...

So, I haven't posted in a while so I decided that it was time for an update. Canskate, Kidskate, and Groupskate have started and we successfully completed a full Anyways I am a P.A. [program assistant] for groupskate and canskate. We are short on p.a.'s to start off which is making this season seem really crazy and stressful. On friday, 3 of our p.a.'s couldn't make it to skating and the head coach was inside doing parent meetings so I was in charge and I had 23 kids in my group!! A normal size is 5-7. Anyways I got through that without going insane and actually kinda enjoyed myself. Hopefully this week will be a little less crazy with group changes and such.
At work this week I worked incredibly hard [jk], on Thursday I made a castle out of soap. The store is in the process of getting ready for christmas. My supervisor told me to make a display of lux soap and to make it look's soap, there's only so much you can do with soap right? Anyways I did what I was told and started putting these boxes on the pallet kinda angleing[sp.] them to add variety. Anyways once I had filled the pallet there was still 12 boxes to empty. So I started to put individual packs out and in the end it looked like a castle. That was only the first exciting thing at work this week. On Saturday, I got to work and started to put out some christmas stock when I had to work in the bull-pen [its what we call the beauty counter-dont ask why-I don't know]. So, we got these new necklaces in and they look more like something I would decorate my christmas tree with but thats besides the point, and anyways when the company sent them to us they just sent all the necklaces in one big box so we had to untangle them. Well when I got to work they had them all untangled except 4, and nobody could untangle them, so I decided to try. Well after 3 hours of constant frustration and untangling and retangling, I got them apart. It was quite exciting.
Anyways thats all for now,
hopefully I'll have more interesting news next time

Just thought I would update...

Hey everybody! I figured that I would blog again since it has been awhile since I last blogged.
Life is pretty much a fixed routine with work, skating and school taking up all my time.
I'm already excited about canskate [a younger skater program] and kidskate [3 and 4 year olds] which start mid-october. My brother and sister-in-law are coming out for thanksgiving which is exciting! I'm in my last week of my current routine before it changes into the regular season which is double the ice time and the same amount of work and lets just say goodbye free time and hello late night homework!!!
Anyways thats all I can think of right now
Bye for now

Thoughts.... know when everything in your life seems like its just ordinary, but everybody around you is having the time of their lives?...Well, that has been me lately...I love life...I really do, but it just seems like every one I know have these glamorous lives and you can't help but wish that that was you? The worst part is that it seems like its getting worse and I feel so bad wishing that their lives were mine, because I really have nothing to complain about.
This has been such a long, and complicating last 2ish weeks...I've had to do some things that will help me later in life...but right now it hurts alot. I did hear a song on the radio on sunday and absolutly love it because it's descrbing how my life is right now...its a new song by superchic[k] called 'Stand In The Rain'...if you have time listen to it

Thats all from me for now

School Starts....

So, School starts in less than a week, as does skating!...I can't believe it that in a week or two I'll be living a set, work, school, skate, school, work, school, get the picture. I have loved working days at my job at superstore and having evenings off...but now I'll be working or skating or doing homework or doing something to do with school, work or skating. It's been a wild ride...high school that is...and I'm almost done!...only one more year!...It's funny how fast life passes you by...anyways...I'm starting to sound like I'm 80 looking back on my entire I'm going to go to bed and get my beauty sleep...and I'll be back when something exciting happens!

Summer's Almost Over!

So, wow summer is almost over...I can't believe it! It seems like I was just talking to my friend about grad and asking if she was all set for her big day!...Anyways, my summer has been filled with work...blah...and hanging out with my friends and finding new things I enjoy doing alot...One of them being scrapbooking...I never thought I would be any good at it first of all or have the creativity for it...turns out that I find it very rewarding. Anyways, I started my summer with a trip out to Saskatoon to see my brother and his wife! It was so much fun! I love spending time with them...We went right over Canada day weekend and so we got to see the fireworks out there...which by the way are like 600 times better than Winkler's which really isn't hard if you think about it...So, other than that, we got to go shopping!! and we went to the zoo...which is smaller than Winnipeg's which surprised me because you'd think a big city like Saskatoon would have a way bigger and better zoo than Winnipeg, but it doesn' it's still a very nice zoo, just not as big. So, after my exciting journey west, we came back home and got back into a regular routine which manly consisted of work...although I got to hang out with my friends and see a few movies and stuff like that...Of course I went and experienced Harvest Festival...the rides, my favorite being the sky master!!...and the donuts, lemonade, and those super greasy curly fries!...And of course I went and saw my friend as she was one of the queen contestents and although she didn't win the title, she made us very proud by bringing home the talent award, Miss Congeniality[which I can't], and 1st Princess!!!...Anyways that's all for now!
