Goodbye Summer, Hello Chaos

Well it's been awhile since I last posted and I decided to update all of you before life gets too crazy. My summer has been good, I've been working and skating mostly, hanging out with friends and doing a little babysitting. Skating is going good, I'm excited for this year, I think it's going to be a good one. Personally, this will probably by my last year skating, at least competing, I want to pass my gold test in Skills and Dance before I hang up the skates for good, so we will see what happens. As far as coaching, this is my first year, and even though I am freaking out, I am so excited. It's going to be so much work, but it's also going to be so worth it in the end.

I got offered a coaching job coaching groupskate in Morden about a month ago, and I said yes, it is the perfect opportunity for a new coach because you are getting to know the up and coming skaters who will likely be your private lesson skaters in a few years, so that was exciting. Then a few weeks ago, I got approached by a few different people about coaching this winter, and I told them all I would think about it, but I didn't give any definates. I debated what I wanted to do, weighed the pro's and con's and decided to take the two other coaching jobs I was offered. So, I am going to be coaching in Manitou [Head Coach], as well I will be Coaching StarSkate and Syncro in Notre Dame. I am so excited and completely freaked out about coaching Syncro, and so when I was told that my Syncro coach referred me it was a huge complement and reassurance that I could handle it. So needless to say, this winter is going to be super busy, but I am excited about the new opportunities and challenges. I am going to start looking for music for Syncro in the next few days, so if anybody has any ideas for music, let me know.

So for a while now, my friend and I have wanted to have a girls weekend, and so we decided that we should go to Winnipeg for the weekend, so on Saturday my friend and I are going into the city, getting our nails done, and staying at the Clarion hotel and just relaxing for the weekend. It's going to be so nice to have one last weekend before I need to start planning for skating. I'm so excited.

Thanksgiving is coming up soon and my parents and I are going to Saskatoon to visit my brother, and SIL as well as Brendan, it is his birthday the weekend before so we are going out for that as well. I can't wait to see my little man.

Anyways, thats all for now.
I hope you are having a great week
God Bless
