What my Goal for 2015 Should be

I had a whole list of 20…ok 17 things made up of what would make 2015 great. Things from cleaning the kitty litter regularly to practicing¬†patience to trying a new activity. I looked at the list and became very overwhelmed. I can barely remember to match my socks let alone 20 things to make a…

When Crazy People Text

Not only am I awkward in social situations but I say whatever I’m thinking over text too, then hit send before proof reading or thinking through the pros and cons. This can be weird for both me and the receiver. And I’ve developed texters thumb. Is there a name for this? There should be. —–…

Because, Love… even when there’s Barf.

I’m laying on my daughters single bed with her while she lays with her head at my feet and jams her toes in my butt. Bedtime is my least favourite time of day. It was going good for a couple of months and then Christmas holidays arrived and she got an ear infection which changed…

Is it January yet?

This week we’ve been getting reports of our little miss not listening in class or at her after school program. At first I was all NO SHE DI’INT. And then I had a look around at the stores, the snow, the decorations, the tree in our living room, the Elf on the shelf, and remembered…

When They Want to Decorate… Drink

Better than Christmas

The streets were glowing with the light¬†reflecting off of them as the rain drizzled down, threatening to end what had been deemed, in our house, the most exciting day of the year. She told me it was more exciting than Christmas. We’ll see when Christmas comes. I was woken that morning at 5:30 am with…

It’s not my Driving

My car and I had been together for almost three years, the tires were getting a little on the rough side and I knew the rims would be screaming for a new pair soon enough. But where would the money come from? As I drove back from dropping my daughter off at daycare on one…

These Pants are Supposed to be Tight

My friend Kim honoured me with a Liebster award. *takes bow, nods at crowd In order to accept I had to answer some questions… I know you all love learning more about me Yes you do. Yes, you do. 1. Are you that guy in your neighborhood who feeds the wildlife? If by wildlife you…
