My dad and I had what we call a “Daddy/Daughter Day” last week. A Daddy-Daughter Day is where my dad and I, or my dad and my sister go to Ottawa and just have some special time together. Sometimes we go to a museum or somewhere special for lunch. This time we went and saw “Alice in Wonderland”, shopped for some new clothes, went to Montana’s for lunch, and Chapters to pick out books for us to read together while he’s gone.
At the end of April, my dad is leaving for Afghanistan. I’m having mixed feelings about that. I’m sad and upset that he’s leaving, but I’m downright proud he’s going there to help people. I used to worry about him going there, but not any more. I know that he’s specially trained and he’ll be fine. Last time he went there, we got a bunch of M&M’s, two for each day he was gone, and put them in a jar. Every morning, from the day he left, my sister and I each got to have an M&M from the jar...

If you are reading this then the website is up and running and we couldn’t be happier. For those people who have been checking the site out over the winter you might have been left with the impression that the magazine came to a complete standstill; nothing could be further from the truth. What might have looked like a standstill was actually sporadic periods of time where we hurried and then we waited; as we waited to complete the website we filled our time with other magazine related tasks.
From The Editor
On ubiquitousmagazine.ca we have designed a site that is user-friendly for military family members. In our In Your Community section we have created pages that will keep military family members in touch with what is going on in their community as well as in other base communities across the country. We have also created a discussion forum where CF families can chat, support and exchange information and ideas with each other in a safe and controlled environment. To post your thoughts, ideas or to respond to an already posted item you need to join our network.
