Then late last week we received the sad news that my sister in law had very suddenly passed away due to an accident at home. I am still shocked as I just saw her at Thanksgiving. She was a strong and spirited woman who loved animals and helping those with disabilities. We are all missing her terribly and I think it will take a while for what happened to really sink in. If I can take anything from it, its to enjoy the moment, as each day is a gift. You just never know how long you have, and to appreciate all the wonderful people in your life.
On a happier note, this week, the first episode of Canada's Worst Driver aired. I was so nervous because I thought I would look really weepy, and stupid, but it wasn't nearly as bad as I remember. Its funny how in one's mind thing appear so much bigger than from the outside. I remember being really teary during the drive around my hometown and cried a lot after the assessment challenge, but they didn't show much of it, thankfully. Below are some photos from the first episode and a video of me talking in more detail about the first episode. I also received a package from the show, which you can see me unbox.

Thanks to everyone for their condolences during this difficult time, and to everyone who has been so encouraging and suppportive during my driving journey. It means a lot that so many people have reached out, I appreciate it so much.
Next week is episode 2, and I'll do another update video and blog update.
