Life Can Turn On A Dime

You may be wondering where I have disappeared to.  The last week has been a stressful one and here is why… Last weekend I was brave and took my kids out of town, alone, without my husband. I bought tickets to go see the play Seussical The Musical and it would be a four hour…

Is There Room For Three in Our Bed?

Move over husband – we have to make room in our marital bed. And no, it’s not for another husband (or wife). It’s for Mr. MacBook! On Thursday night I swore I was going to go insane (ironic eh?). Initially, I went to bed around 10:30 pm thinking I would read some of my textbook…

Week Eighteen of Project Happy

It’s that time of year again! Park time with the kiddos. Thursday morning I went to the park with my Little Man and hung out with my MOPs friends. Little Man wanted to try the slide on the little kid play structure.  It is the perfect size for kids his age (two years old). He…

Anxiety and Its Vicious Circle

I wrote this post yesterday when I returned home from my morning out with my son.  And yesterday did turn out to be an awesome day. This morning started out really well (except for some mild 6 year old whining and complaining). Little Man and I met some of our mom friends and kids out…

Week Seventeen of Project Happy

This week’s Project Happy is all about music. I love music. It’s always been a big part of my life. I grew up taking music lessons.  First, I learned how to play the accordion.  The accordion is a traditional instrument in our family.  My grandpa played it as well as my dad.  Then, I moved…

Week Sixteen of Project Happy

I am sorry that my Project Happy post is late this week. Things have been busy here this past week. The visit with my brother was excellent.  I did not get to the old house (what we refer to the house we grew up in) to go through my childhood belongings but my brother sure…

SignUpForLife.ca: Become An Organ Donor

My province, Manitoba, has made it even easier to become an organ donor! Yesterday, a press release was issued stating that Manitoba residents could sign up to become an organ and tissue donor by registering at signupforlife.ca. I am so excited about this new registry! I have always made sure to sign the donor card…

My Kids: Creatures of Habit

I have noticed lately that my boys are creatures of habit. I guess they come by it honestly.  Although, I have been a little more flexible in my routine since becoming a stay at home mom. But my kids, not so much. Big Boy lives by the clock.  He has to eat breakfast, morning snack,…
