Yesterday I had a sick day from work. I was not sick, and the kids have nothing but colds... but Nanny Auntie Kelly had a migraine. I SOOO enjoyed my "sick day" home. I have been quite busy with work, and this was a much needed forced break. It was great to have a day away with no plans, and time to completely devote to M & D! We didn't have a real exciting day, but that's the point! We did visit Jenny and Vivian in the afternoon.
So what have I been busy with at work??? The 2nd Annual Hockey Docs/21 for Kids Gala took place on Friday night at the Minnepolis Marriott SW, with their golf tournament on Saturday at Rush Creek in Maple Grove. Friday we had 5 families attend the gala and auction to represent Gillette. 21 for Kids is the foundation created by former SCSU/MN Wild player Mark Parrish from Bloomington. All his family and friends volunteer at the event, and many, many hockey players attend. Hockey Docs are Twin Cities doctors who like to play hockey recreationally, but wanted to use their connections to help kids charities. At the golf tournament, we had a Gillette child who helped players putt on a hole for donations. Each foursome has a hockey player celebrity golf with them. Our families had a great time! The inventor of Crocs shoes was with one foursome. He donates Crocs to every golfer.
