Mommy It Hurts

I've been wanting to write this for a week now. Almost to the day. On this day a week ago my son's beloved hamster died. He found the furry little guy in his cage already gone when he went to take him out to play. Ham Diggity was 2 1/2, which is a pretty good... Continue Reading →

Blissfully Loud

I LOVE yoga! In fact I have a daily practice (give it take a Sunday here and there) at home with my favourite YouTube yoga teacher Adriene. It gives me peace and exercise all in one. A self journey so to speak. No that's exactly what it is. It's my religion. As a part of... Continue Reading →

But It Hurts

Why is that doing the right thing always hurts?!  Take shoveling your neighbour's driveway for instance; this hurts!  Literally.  You're out shoveling the pile of freshly plowed snowed from the bottom of your driveway, because you are on the evening or night shift and you just know that there is no way that your neighbour...

The Power of Happy

Do you have the moments when all the stresses of life melt away and you are consumed by a wave of happiness? They can be simple moments. Times when the universe aligns for a moment and everything seems right. A random heartfelt hug from your child; a perfect date with someone you love; a trip... Continue Reading →

Cleaning Up

I have some OCD tendencies.  I'll admit it.  I like things a certain way and it drives me mad when they aren't that way.  In fact I tend to hit a bit of a depression when I am overwhelmed by a messy and disorganized house, which was often the case when I would come home... Continue Reading →

My Boys

In some ways I think my boys are more demanding of my attention than my daughter.   My boys are very sweet little guys. At nine years old they are far more kind and caring than I could have hoped for. They don't wrestle with each other or hit. They adore their sister and idolize their... Continue Reading →

Making A Home

The act of finding a suitable place to live is another one of those crazy unpredictable things in life. You may have one idea of how it should go, but chances are it won't end up that way. We had a set idea in our head that we would live in the downtown core and... Continue Reading →

A Long Journey

I'm going to empathize long here! Driving over 3000 kms in a truck with your spouse, three kids, dog and let's not forget the hamster is the definition of insanity! At least I'm pretty sure it comes close to it. I'm lucky really. No one got hurt or hurt each other and we are all... Continue Reading →

Poor Patient

I am such a baby when I'm sick!  And it seems that it only getting worse as I get older.  Or perhaps it's as my kids get older.  It's almost like the instincts that give me "mommy mode" know that the kids are old enough to entertain themselves for long enough while I nap, or... Continue Reading →
