So we goofed around in the village Friday night...
And I skied in a t-shirt (in temps about 24 C, 75 F!) for the first time ever Saturday which was amazing, 'cept I forgot to apply sunscreen on my arms and spent last night sleepless and in agony with the Worst. Sunburn. Ever.
And we took this photo at dinner last night and I am aware that my dress is gaping and my overfed stomach is attempting a breakout. Can you blame it? We ate at a raclette restaurant which means they just bring you everything they find in the kitchen and you let the cheese melt on it and it's the Greatest. Thing. Ever.
And I think it was probably the very best time I have ever had at Mont Tremblant which is, literally, our second home (so I've been here a lot!)
BUT - the very best part of my weekend was opening the newspaper yesterday and reading this.
The story announces that the Canadian government is set to become the first in the world to ban the chemical Bisphenol-A, a proven hormone disruptor which is found in plastic baby bottles and the resin that lines the tin cans used to hold our food.
And the story says major retailers in Canada have already pulled products with Bisphenol-A off the shelves due to public demand.
Way back in October when I had been blogging for only a matter of weeks I wrote a rather impassioned piece on Bisphenol-A as part of Blog Action Day - a political movement which saw 15,000 bloggers reaching more than 12 million readers with their environmental concerns. In my neck of the woods BlogHers Act Canada concentrated its efforts on - you guessed it - banning Bisphenol-A!
Well we did it ladies and gentlemen - I believe Blog Action Day and BlogHers Act Canada put this issue on the front burner and directly influenced corporate and government policy with regards to a potentially hazardous chemical.
If you are reading this in the United States or the United Kingdom or Australia or anywhere else in the world, please follow my links, educate yourself about Bisphenol-A and find out where your government stands.
Because if we Canucks can do it, so can you: there is no force in the world greater than a mommy (or a daddy) blogger with a mission to keep their precious children safe.
We rock hard folks. We all do. Each and every one of us!
