Entering the Tween Years or How Can I Stop Time?


My daughter has become a tornado of ideas and emotions, seemingly overnight. Her favourite sentence is, “I know that already!”. We have officially entered the “tween” years. And here I thought I had more time. I believe she is raging with hormones already and it won’t be long until we have a full-fledged tween/teen monster on our hands. She is…

Hunter’s Thoughts On Heaven


Hunter has an interesting theory on heaven. He has thought deeply on the subject since his friend died in Grade One. Since then, his interest in history and mythology has grown. He is at a high reading level and has gobbled up books on both subjects all year. As a result, he has his own ideas on heaven. Lately, he…

An Online Psychiatrist Is a Real Thing!


Our lives are becoming more digital and intertwined with computers. We type all of our messages: we email instead of writing letters, we text rather than talk. It can seem that we are losing that human connection! But we can also be connected through computers and tech. I have people on Instagram that understand my daily struggle with anxiety or…

Is Marriage Counseling Right For Us?


My parents are divorced. Their marriage fell apart slowly, over years and years, and I wonder if they asked, “Is marriage counseling right for us?” They were together until I was in my twenties, so it happened when I was an adult myself, but it was still hard on the family. Growing up, my parents fought a lot. It was…

Falling in Love with Crow’s Feet


Remember being a little kid, say 7 or 8, and declaring, “When I’m an old person of 20 years old with crow’s feet, I’m gonna fall in love, live in a big house, and invent flying cars!” Old person, at 20? I’m laughing so hard at my childhood self right now. I did picture something right- I did start to…

Vacation vibin' at Huntington Beach, California

Our Long Weekend in Huntington Beach, California.


Our long weekend in Huntington Beach, California could also be titled, “What I Ate in Cali” because the food was so incredible! And, also, I love eating. We just got back from the beach and I am already dreaming of going back! We won this trip to Huntington Beach through Josh’s outstanding achievements at work, so I was all the…

During vacation in Cali, free from obligations. How do I keep the vacay vibes last? Help. (http://babblingpanda.com/)

Keeping it Together


I have a confession to make- since vacation I have felt overwhelmed. I know I owe you vacation stories, and I promise they’re on their way, but right now I want to talk about “real life”. It’s hard for me to admit I am just keeping it together and that I may have a bit too much going on. I…

Why I’ve Had to Give Up Coffee


Coffee. That single word can bring up so many memories- maybe of parents or grandparents drinking it, maybe of a special coffee date or maybe as recent as this morning when you were brewing your first cup. I know that my first thought when my alarm goes off is,”I can’t wait to have my coffee”. Coffee is more than a…

We’re Going To California!


Off we go to California!! A weekend trip to Huntington Beach, to be exact. The trip is a gift from Josh’s boss in lieu of a raise this year, due to the recession. The owner only has a few of us going, about 20 I think, so it should be fun. I can’t wait to hit the beach and maybe…

I’m A Lazy Eco-Warrior


I am  a lazy eco-warrior. Every Spring I get so fired up about saving the planet, then take on too much and fizzle out in the winter. This year I am going to pace myself. I am also going to learn patience and to be less impulsive- because the Earth needs us ALL the time, not just when we feel…
