If I build it?

Will you come?

Before Orlando I started to think about planning a much smaller Trauma Mama retreat in Ontario, near Toronto to be specific. But before I go ahead and put the time into doing that I am wondering if there are people who are near Toronto who would be interested in coming, or perhaps you are not near Toronto but you would be willing to travel.

I have looked at a few places and am thinking about the end of September which would mean that the kids are all back in school and it would be easier for Mamas to get away. The places ( all with in an hour of Toronto) that I have looked at would be reasonably priced and including food we would be looking at about 200.00 each if we had between 10 and 15 woman for a Friday afternoon through Monday morning weekend.

If you think that you might possibly interested let me know either in a comment or an email, my address is in the left sidebar.

Now I must go and wash dishes and retrieve children and work on processing the fact that Calvin has raged and tantrumed (is that a word) and Fudge had suddenly forgotten that he knows how to use a toilet. But that is a post for a different day because I am busy floating on "de Nile" river

As long as I could swing child care- I would DEFINITELY be in. :) Toronto is not far away at all. The deciding factor would be my dad's schedule but it certainly seems likely.

If my husband ever lets me leave the house again, I would be there just to kiss your beautiful face! Not likely, but girl, if only!!!

As long as the price stays affordable and i can swing extra support at home then i'd be in.

Put me in the definitely possible category. Very interested to hear more and see whether I can swing it. Wpg's not too far from Toronto, right? And I don't have to teach all of my class sessions, do I? (Univ classes are underway in Sept, but I'm only scheduled to teach on T and Th!)

Also, Kelli in northern Minnesota and I have emailed each other (thanks again for contacting me, Kelli) about possibly getting something organized for the upper midwest region -- MN,ND,WI,this part of Cda. We'll see.
