I was set to go to my friend Reba's this weekend (in Bowling Green, KY) I've never been.... though she's visited me numerous times over the past few years. Mark is working overtime; she and I were so looking forward to a fun girls weekend!

Then my nephew (who is a student / hockey player at Purdue) just sent me this message: " Hi aunt tess! Would you be willing to drop the puck for my purdue hockey breast cancer awareness game this Saturday in Kankakee, il?"

:'(

Bowling Green is about an hour and 15-20 minutes from me. We have been there several times for shopping. Small world.

They did this last weekend at our local hockey games. It was a touching ceremony where 5 BC survivors each dropped the puck the night we were there.

They funnest part of the whole evening was watching the players skate around in their fantastically fashionable 'pink' hockey uniforms!!

yes - I asked my nephew at Christmas, to get me a pink jersey from last years event (didn't realize this one was upcoming) so maybe I'll get one this weekend.

He messaged me this morning & said the newspaper is interviewing him about us.... and is there anything I'd like to contribute? Wow!

Wow that's wonderful Stephanie! Why not have Reba to stay with you instead of you going to hers? Then she can come along and support you.

I offered Rosey, but she's missed work already this week (due to illness) and it's up near Chicago; too far to travel for just Sat/Sunday. She's disappointed (as am I ) but she's understanding and supportive

I would have dropped the puck too. It is so hard when you have two great things come up to do and you have to choose between the two.
