No Badge For You…

That's what I heard.  Not what they said, but what I heard. For six weeks we've spent every morning at the pool.  In Level one.  He's done amazingly well.  Went from not being able to put his face in the water to being able to do a front glide, front swim, front float.  But he can't jump in yet.  And he can't float on his back...and he just doesn't have the self confidence to let go long enough to do it. And I feel like crap.  If you … [Read more...]

Hoppy Easter!

It's almost like Mini Christmas - at least that is how I've been feeling this Easter.  Between the crazy traffic, the swamped shopping malls and the money spent, I'm exhausted. Thursday I went shopping to pick up Ben and Wil's Easter treats.  I spent $80...That Is INSANE.  Spoiled Mr. Ben is getting a DS Game ($33) A Chocolate Bunny and Chocolate Eggs for the hunt.  He's also getting Bubbles and a Coloring Kit.  From his G'ma he's getting an … [Read more...]

Wordless Wednesday – Where I Come From…

This is the house that my Grandmother lived in.  This is where she raised her 5 children, and where she took care of My sister and I when we were small and Mom was working.  Most of my childhood memories are from this house.  In the distance there is a railroad track.  The train ran when I was small and I'll never forget the sound.  The train no longer runs there anymore, the only thing you'll find is an abundance of wild blueberry and blackberry … [Read more...]

Well…I’m Here

After two days of complete and utter frustration on my part, I am now officially on wordpress.  I have to say about an hour into the change I was regretting my decision, but thanks to some wonderful friends the chaos is beginning to clear and I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.  Now - to get back to our regularly scheduled program... Remember the boy in the cast??? Yeah - he's mine.  We went today for an x-ray in hopes of getting … [Read more...]

What a busy weekend Mixing a few posts into one! Contest winner, and a new contest!!

I have to say, I have not been so tired as I am right now in a long time. As some of you know, I have recently taken over my step fathers Billiards Club. My working hours have more than doubled, and I am tired. I have to ask, how do people who work full time with young kids do it?? My space is a mess. My laundry pile has gone from my knees to my waist. I've made 1 home cooked meal in the last week. (And boy was it yummy) And most of all, I miss … [Read more...]


My space is a mess!! I have been working or running for too many days straight, I need a day just for housework. My laundry is up to my knees, my bed goes unmade, the floor needs to be cleaned. LOL. Working this much SUCKS. I want to be home more. I think I need some organizational help. I've just finished blogging on CleanCanada about my Green Pick of the Week, Bohemian Bubbles. A locally made Goats Milk Soap that I have fallen in love with. … [Read more...]

Our Adventure

Ben and I decided to go for an Adventure today. We took a walk through the paths in the wooded area by our house. We were looking for Toadstools, Salamanders, Squirrels, Chipmunks, and Bears and Moose according to Ben. We spent about an hour out playing in the woods. It rained a little but we were well covered by trees. I love Trees. I'm teaching Ben to be a tree hugger, but I think I've told you that already. So, we found some interesting … [Read more...]

Rainy Day

Well, Yesterday It rained. And rained, and rained. But for little boog's like mine, those are the best kind of days. Ben had a ball jumping and splashing in the puddles. I think he hit every puddle for 1.5Km. We had to walk from Mommy's work to Daddy's work, and we had a ball. We were even offered a ride, and turned it down, though it was appreciated. Check out some of Ben's Rainy Day Fun. He went through 2 pairs of pants yesterday. But it was … [Read more...]

Fungi Frenzi

The Great Toadstool Hunt! Holy Toadstool!! Ben and I had a bit of a toadstool frenzi today. There was a giant toadstool that shot up in the front yard over the last two days and I had to get a picture of it. I would bet that this toadstool could have been seen from three or four houses away.  Toadstools are kind of amazing aren't they?  They just seem to pop up out of no where. This is Ben and the Giant Toadstool. He poked and prodded … [Read more...]

The day that never ends.

5am...yeah 5am was when the Boog decided it was time for our day to start. It is now 11:18 and I can barely keep my eyes open. It was a big day today. Boog got a new babysitter. His first in over a year. We've always worked our schedule so that we didn't need a sitter, but with myself putting in more hours at the Club we need a sitter. Luckily Daddy has a 14 year old cousin who is available from time to time, after school and weekends and the … [Read more...]
