12-12-12 and Other Important Things

I think the fact that today is 12-12-12 is pretty cool.  While driving home today, I realized that I would never again see a day in which the month, day and year were the same.  There won't be a 13-13-13, 14-14-14, or 20-20-20.  I have never been one to consider dates significant, but it would have been really convenient to be born today or get married today.  It would be fun to say "12-12-12" every time someone asked when you were born or when you got married.  Since I've done both, there is nothing left (except the obvious but I would prefer a random day in 2062 for that).

So, I spent my day at the Etobicoke Olympium which has to be one of the coolest swimming pools (and by far the largest) that I have ever been to.  I was there for a high school swim meet.  Tyler, along with the rest of the NTCS swim team, was one of several swimmers competing.  Tyler did great!  He swam "personal bests" in the breast stroke and freestyle, earning a 4th place finish in the breast stroke.  Way to go, Tyler!

I also discovered how much FUN iMovie can be!  I've never used it before!!  So, below is not only a quick recap of the swim meet (for those of you who didn't see the need to fly to Toronto for a 1 minute race) but my first iMovie project!

Just think.  Years from now, I will always remember that I made my first iMovie on 12-12-12!!

UPDATE:  Something else really awesome happened today!  Scott got a Superior Honor Award from the U.S. Department of State today!!!!  So proud of my man!


  1. Congratulations to Tyler and Scott. What an exciting week for both of them!

  2. Very impressive honor for Scott and I am still super impressed with Tyler and his swimming ability.
