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 →

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!

A Life With A View

Our opinion of people, of jobs and of places is based on a few factors, like how we are raised. I think age and life experience also play a huge factor is the way we see things. Like many teenagers I thought I knew it all and that the world would be laid out at... Continue Reading →

A Chance For Opportunity

It' s funny the turns and twists that life takes.  How different circumstances play out in either a positive or negative way, or even start out as being one way and end up another.  One just never knows where their journey will take them, but learning to enjoy, embrace and be educated by the steps...
