#BeSuper – There Is No Other Way To Be! **Twitter Contest!**

William 2

I have superkids... they're odd balls like me and I love them for it.  They like to be goofy, dance in public, make up wonky songs and talk in odd voices.  They're jokesters.  And I think that's awesome.  They're also very impressionable.  And it doesn't take much to sway them from the good side over to the bad.  We do our best to keep their swagger on the straight and narrow.   That isn't always easy.  There is a lot of outside … [Read more...]

HW Helmet

I longed for the sunshine.  When I was a little girl, the winters were just as long and cold as they are today.  And I remember wishing for the warmth of the sun to return.  When we were kids our entertainments was play...and we preferred to play outside.  We didn't have a computer in every pocket. Phones, laptops, smart anything. No...we played with toys and friends.  Life was good back then. Now don't begin to think I'm even one bit … [Read more...]

It's here! It's here! It's here! I say this like a little girl waiting for Christmas.  I am so happy that the warmth of the sun has returned and I no longer have to ware many, many layers to walk out the door.  Flip flops, tank tops and pretty skirts are my new wardrobe...and If I never see another snow flake again, I won't be that upset... My kids have written their summer bucket lists, and those lists are far from short.  They've been … [Read more...]

Financially Sound… Until You’re Not…

Saving Money

It's easy to pass judgement. To look at someone in financial ruin and  assume it was mismanagement or frivilous spending that put them there. To watch them as they sprial downward into that deep, dark, hole of debt, that is so hard to climb out of. I climbed out of it once. Before, when I was young.  Our priorities were far from sound and we threw our money away.  We had debt collectors call daily...hourly.  One day a lightbulb went off, … [Read more...]

Burst Into Spring with Shoppers Drug Mart


It is finally over!  That winter was the absolute worst we have ever seen here in Nova Scotia.  There was more snow than I have ever seen in a single season!  So much so, that there are STILL snow banks trying to melt away.  I am so grateful that spring is finally here, and I can unwrap myself from the copious layers of clothes and soak up some sunshine. My skin is craving sunshine, not a single drop of sun has touched me in so long, I fear I … [Read more...]
