6.5yo is sort of a dynamo at some things. Needless to say, those things are the things he loves. He doesn’t have a fantastic attention span, but neither do I, actually. Anyhoo, getting him to try new things can sometimes be difficult, and I don’t like to bribe *all* the time. For goodness sake, some … Continue reading Reading and Chocolate go hand in hand!
Its 2019, but I still remember when I had trouble remembering to write 1988 because I was stuck in 1987. That must have been grade 4, or thereabouts. Today I am in grade turning 40. I had a great year, highs and lows, of course. I wrote a list because I couldn’t remember shit all … Continue reading New Year, Who Dis?
I’m reading The Good Widow by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke. It’s good. It’s about a woman whose husband dies in a place he wasn’t meant to be. He travels for work. Sound familiar? Yep, that’s my life, except for the dead bit. So now she’s asking herself all the trust questions and it’s terrible … Continue reading Trust Issues, Much?
Well, friends and countrymen, I did something radical and I may or may not be pressed for a secret password to prove that I am, in fact, really and truly me. I bought an electric cord for the elliptical that has been a clothes rack in the bedroom for the past 4 or so years, … Continue reading Sweating
10yo gave us a bit of grief about reading before he started pulling the all night reading benders *fist bump*. One of the things I had him do was read Green Eggs And Ham to 6yo who was widdle and potty training at the time. He would always, always poo when it was time to … Continue reading Green Eggs And Ham
There is never enough time, and if we had more of it, we’d probably try and do more so we’d end up with the same lack of it. I have the day off work, today, and there was a long list of cool shit I wanted to do, but there’s just not enough time for … Continue reading Of The Essence
This week was all the things, including all the feels. I had the week off work since Husband is living it up in the Swiss Alps or etc. Nothing more I appreciate than that my office is understanding about child care! This week was the absolute best, and not because Husband was absent, but I … Continue reading All The Things
I’m reading a great book and obvs there’s plot twists and depths of layers, but one thing that’s pissing me off is the guy getting pissed off and insulting the girl’s living situation. She’s self-made and doing things on her own terms and he comes in and thinks it’s all nothing. It’s insulting and making … Continue reading I Tell You What
Do you ever wonder what it would be like to have fave characters and their storylines made into a movie? Of course, how amazing to see it all on screen! But if it doesn’t look like you imagined it, or if it’s really just a pile of garbage, it’s hard to forget. For me, it’s … Continue reading Made Flesh
Guys, I need to update the blog because it’s been a while – work, go figure! – and because we’re probably getting our tree today, and I might not live to tell the tale. If you’ve been reading my shit for a while, then you’re probably familiar with my history of choosing xmas trees but let me … Continue reading It’s That Time Again
