Closure…tied up

Why did you do this? Why didn’t your husband do this? He’s weak! He’s selfish! He’s afraid! He doesn’t support you! No.  Wrong.  Ultimately the decision to have my tubes “tied” this past week (although this is far from what happens and if that is what truly happened it would have been much more pleasant)…

Cheater Cheater Netflix Watcher!

I dimmed the lights and hushed the butterflies in my stomach. I knew what I was doing was wrong but the rush sweeping me off my feet was worth it. I rapidly set the mood with the hopes of not disturbing the perfect atmosphere, grabbed a light snack and drink, then went to get into…

Looking for Gloom and Doom?? Netflix has you Covered!

My daughter is at a weird age right now. She loves cartoons but also is kind of getting into the tween shows that make you want to stab yourself in the eye at first, but once you watch a few you realize you’re dedicated to the characters and want to watch even when your child…

Bring on the Jolly!

Christmas is three days away. I says pardon? Did you say three? Seriously, my pay check needs to sort it self out around this time of year and get on track with when the Baby Jesus makes his arrival because my lack of funds is putting a cramp in gift buying. There are also two…

Yes My House Does Look Like This – No I Don’t Care!

Recently, while in the midst of kitchen renovations, bathroom renovations, ceiling renovations (why didn’t we burn the house down?) a friend of my husbands came over. Note: I was not home… Lawd a Mercy he is lucky. It was the picture of perfection. Four laundry baskets in my living room, a barbie bathing pool in…

Pumpkin Carving and Spooky Titles with Netflix

October. My favourite month. Cooler air, beautiful colours, big sweaters, tall boots, and Halloween. I love all of the spooky decorations, seeing kids dressed up, the anticipation of trick or treating, and of course, the candy!! Mmmmm, sweet sweet sugar.   In preparation for the scariest time of year we bundled up, lost ourselves in…

Family Movie Night with a New Recipe and Netflix

Fall has arrived. Much to the dismay of the sun worshipers, beach lovers, short wearers, and those of us who bought 10 pairs of flip-flops on clearance. We are now back in the full swing of school routine. Making lunches, completing homework (for the first time over here), agenda reminders, library books, pizza money… and…

All You Need is Love… And Netflix

August has me sighin’ like, whoa. This summer has been super dee duper! Okay, my apologies, by child is watching Barney and that was uncalled for. I begged her to change it but she’s mesmerized now and there’s no turning back. I’ve lost her to the purple side. I’m not ready for summer to be…

Canada Day with Netflix and Family

Although Canada Day was July 1st and we celebrated our country’s 149th birthday on that day that doesn’t mean the celebration ended there! We are proud Canadian’s all month and all year-long! Our family celebrated this year with our whole family getting together for a BBQ at my aunt’s house. We swam, ate, and had…
