We were woken this morning by the building's sound system. It was pretty sweet; felt like I was cracked over the head and then:
Poor G-man didn't know what to do. He was shaking and soooo scared. I saved his life though; it's what I do. Yup, in my spare time I save the lives of scared puppies, kittens & the elderly. I was looking for a superhero costume and now that I have the pimping shoes - I'm half way there.
Brad got up and took Griff outside and I started my aerosols. When he got back he had a fabuloso idea; coffee date at Starbucks after breakfast. So we grabbed some cereal and sat on the couch to watch the Olympics, besides just wanting to watch, I also need to get pointers for when I'm an Olympic competitor.
So there we are eating our breakfast together and I've taken approximately 3 spoonfuls when I look up and see Brad's completely done and going back for more. I guess it does take a lot of energy, and in turn you rack up a big appetite, to be my "support worker".
We eventually made it to Starbucks and I got my....ok, 2 guesses.
Brad went to the gym in the afternoon and I decided to stay behind and blog.
|Griff wanted to help|
|Consoling my boy|
|Ok, now it just looks like a headlock|
He actually had me lifting weights. There were no 3 lbs, so I attempted the 5. I didn't do so bad; I did like 1 rep and everything. Tomorrow I think I'll bench press 100. Obviously I'm ready for that; I'll just crank up the O2 to 1000 litres and show everyone how it's done.
In total Brad climbed 1840 stairs today!!! To help you understand the enormity of this, there are 1776 stairs in the CN Tower. He told me he was inspired by his friend Liam, who's battling cancer and is literally, at this very moment, fighting for his life. Brad knows that Liam wishes he were well and able to be working out, so Brad did it for him.
We wish him, his girlfriend Katie and his family peace and comfort during this difficult time. It's times like these that I wish we were back in Nova Scotia. Thankfully, Brad is able to keep in touch with Liam and get updates from Katie. Liam has many friends who are there for him and are flying in to see him, which is a testament to how great a guy he is. He's been a really great friend to Brad, as they've been there for each other through all the crap that's been thrown at them.
In 100% complete seriousness, hug your friends and family and never take them for granted.
