Netflix is our Valentine

Today was Valentine’s Day celebrations at my daughters school. She dressed in white and red… excuse me, pink, because red is not her colour, and she skipped through the school with her bag, excited to give valentines to her classmates. After her day was done she burst through the door, dumped her valentines mail bag…

Ya’ll Ready for This? Year 3 #StreamTeam

By this time each year I’m usually just finishing up my last box of chocolates from Santa and promising myself I’ll start exercising tomorrow. Or the next day. I have every excuse in the book to not go on the treadmill, eat anything healthy, wear my running shoes, get off the couch, go outside, breathe…

Adult Colouring Books will End Me

I was all ready to write you a little diddy and get back in the saddle. I had a list of prompts that were going to help me on my way, my cat was by my side, and things were rollin’ down the river. Well… now I can’t remember the password to my email. I…

Netflix is Ringin’ in 2016 with Something AWESOME!

Now that the holidays are over and we are all getting back to “reality” I feel like we need something to help us get through the next couple of months. No, not copious amounts of alcohol, although that will help and you can send bottles to my house directly, thank you. But I was thinking…

Holiday Treats can’t be Beat with Netflix!

My daughter and I have been counting down the days until Christmas holidays for weeks. To say we are ready is an understatement. We danced a jolly jig when we put up the Christmas tree on the first weekend of December, we welcomed our Elf, Fuddle, back with open arms and wake every morning to…

Solving Night Time Stalls with Netflix

Most nights, at our house, bedtime runs smoothly. We give the 15 minute warning, we remind at the 5 minute and then it’s time to go and pick out a book. Pj’s are put on prior to the witching hour and every one is calming down. Off to bed you go, my love. It’s 7:30…

Lose the Cape – Never Will I Ever

Do you see that fancy new widget on my sidebar? The what on your what what? Okay… sorry. The new image at the side of my blog? THAT is the new book I’m in and I couldn’t be happier! I’m telling a story of my experiences before having a child, and then after. Lawd a…

A Netflix Halloween

Today is the day! Halloween. Do you have your costume ready. Are you set on what you’re going to be? Have your children changed their minds five thousand times driving you to the edge of insanity. Think of the candy… think of bedtime and all of the candy. If you’re still ¬†having trouble deciding that…

Capturing Grief

On October 15th 2012 I had my first miscarriage. It was a pain I have never experienced in my life, one that I can’t equate with anything else, and a memory that holds tight. I was certain I would never feel that kind of loss again. Then, on December 12, 2014, I had my second…
