The Movember Chronicles, Vol. 3 — I Can Feel My Face

Some men finish Movember and make their way to Decembeard, embracing the liberating feeling of growing facial hair sans judgment as they show off the fruits of their labour for the world to see. Some men can’t wait for the 1st of December, razor at the ready to reclaim their baby-soft skin, with countless throngs of significant others grinning ear to ear as the scratchy cuddle sessions make their way out of the picture. But for me, constantly transitioning between a face so clean I get ID’d when I’m buying a case of beer and a face so scruffy it sometimes inspires passersby to berate me into cleaning my act up and getting a job… finishing Movember marked my passage into the year’s last days, changing gears from saving the world via my ‘stache to doing all that I can to make Merry Christmases for people whose holiday seasons might’ve turned out otherwise.

As I said before, it’s a shame I couldn’t make as much of the month as my Team Thomas peers, but I’m glad that I could still raise $500 thanks to my buddies at Thomas & Friends that the Movember Foundation wouldn’t have had otherwise.

It feels good to do good.

Pretty sure I had this idea before, but couldn’t make it stick. Putting together a quick synopsis of the week to show what I’d been up to without needing a full post for every little thing.

But the last time I did it? I overthought everything, getting too lost in the details to make it effective.

This time it’ll be quick, dirty, and good for people who just want the highlights of what your favourite blogger’s favourite blogger* is up to!

So let’s go!!!

Sunday, September 27th

Started the week by wrapping up our church retreat at Camp Kwasind in Utterson, ON, a few hours north of Toronto. Little Man had a killer time, even going as far as finding comfort in the arms of other parents.

You do you, bro. You do you.

Also, I’m horrible at foosball.
