National award The Thérèse Casgrain Lifelong Achievement Award is the national award category----Deadline missed---start over in 2018

It was a busy day today. As there was no food in the house I had to go pick up some milk and bread for younger boy. Later on in the day I picked up some more food from Sobey's as he refused to eat the food that the grandparents had made (rice and curries).
In between I took dad to see the eye doctor as he is still experiencing pain after the corneal transplant. Since dad is not a complainer, this means trouble in my mind. Dr. Climenhaga was away and so his partner saw dad. I will be taking dad again next Monday as Dr. Climenhaga will be back. Dad has an 8/10 headache which is plenty and his quality of life right now is poor. It's troubling. I never thought about complications of corneal transplants and perhaps this is a good thing because we would not have gone ahead knowing all this sort of stuff happens.
After the trip to the eye doctor downtown which was pretty busy I took mum to the Riverbend Dynacare to do the bloodwork from the Glenrose hospital and from Dr. Sholter (three month blood work). We were both tuckered out when we were done and I dropped mum off and came home. I had a nap on the sofa which helped and now I am able to think
I got the news that the award for Ruth is going to have to wait as I missed the deadline for 2017. I have this award to think about for next year now. Well at least I tried. I will have to work on this national award next year sometime. Which means I will look for a national award for Ruth Adria someplace else. But where? I keep looking.

Examples of nominees (all examples are fictitious):
When he was 35 years old, Arthur started a shelter when a friend confided in him about the years of abuse she suffered as a child. The shelter, which accommodates up to 16 children, provides short-term services to boys and girls between 10 and 17 years old who have suffered abuse. Now 58 years old, Arthur continues to run the shelter and works tirelessly to educate others in his community about how they can protect children from abuse.
Millie makes weekly visits to residents at the local seniors' home, volunteers at special events that raise funds for development projects and sits on the board of directors for a community not-for-profit organization. She also babysits, lends her car and offers a place to stay to people who need help.
