Another day wasted. I feel well enough to not spend the day napping but not well enough to actually accomplish anything. I feel lazy. I plan to attempt yoga tonight with the hubby. Maybe it will help even if I’m not up to all of the moods. If you want to know what we do every night, it’s Jivamukti Yoga…

A Short Comment About the Boston Marathon Tragedy.

I was sad to hear about the Boston Marathon. Guns and bombs seem to be the violence of choice these days. In Canada we worry about it far less than our neighbours to the South. And across the world in many other countries it is a daily occurrence and fear. As the blogger from “Apartment 34” says, “The tragedy in…

Easter With My Kids

Easter is just a chocolate fest in our house. Isabella goes to a Christian preschool only because I want her to know the Bible stories from a devout Christian perspective.

Mommy and Son Time

Every Thursday Izzy has an extra class in the afternoons. There isn’t enough time in the 45 minutes she’s learning to go home, so Hunter and I go across the street to the A&W to look at books and waste time.   Every time Hunter orders an apple juice and a muffin. I get a black coffee.   But for…

My Kids Made Up “Nudie Cooper”.

My kids make up some weird sayings. Way out there sayings. I have to write more of them down. Some last for a day or a week. Some last for weeks on end. But first, back tracking a bit.

I Used To Be So Cool
