“School, Already?”


Does September and the beginning of school feel like a new start to you, too? What if you don’t have kids- is it the same for you?

It Happens Sometimes When the Weather Changes.


Today was not great. It wasn’t a good day, health-wise. Sometimes I have to adjust my whole day around my health and it’s really frustrating.  The weather called for rain- the perfect day to clean! Right? Wrong. My health tanks sometimes when the weather changes. When I woke up, I had so many plans to be productive…. Instead, I woke…

Quiet Mornings


I didn’t sleep very well last night- kept waking up randomly. I finally gave up an hour before my alarm goes off at 7:30 am this morning. My husband looked like he had seen a ghost since I am NEVER up at the same time as him. I know a lot of you probably get up at 5 am( or…

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…

Surviving the Introvert Hangover.


I feel a little jangly today. My stomach feels off, probably from all the sugar in the apple crisp last night (worth it!), or maybe all the socializing, and my muscles are sore from working out. We had a busy weekend and now I feel “hungover” of sorts. I get like this after a big weekend. (#introvertproblems) Except for my…

Memories of Getting the Mail With My Mom.


We are under a winter snow warning! This has been the snowiest winter I’ve seen in Calgary since I moved here in 2007. A lot of the snow has gathered on our trees and mailboxes, as you can see here, in the blue early morning light:     A lot of people hate that we don’t have door-to-door delivery anymore…

Organizing Collections and Letting Ideas Flow.


I am supposed to be working. I am supposed to be writing some articles to submit, paying my bills and doing my online course. But I can’t settle into it because my bookshelf is untidy. Also, I see a dust bunny on my floor, and my cabinet is too crowded. I’m having one of those scattered days where every little…

Brainwave: How I Saved My Mornings.


I am not a morning person. I’ve tried. I’ve read countless articles saying that you just had to switch your schedule to adapt to it: don’t drink coffee after 2 p.m., go to bed early and at the same time, don’t drink water before bed so you’re not up peeing all night, eat a banana before you go to sleep,…

My Kid, The Loner


My son has a very active imagination. Alone, he can play with Lego or action figures for hours and make up several new rich and layered stories. He doesn’t get lonely. Socializing with kids during class-time at school and playing with his sister for an hour after school is usually enough for him. After school, he is often exhausted and…

Giving Less of A F*ck.


In 2018, I’m making some changes. Not resolutions. But big changes out of necessity. My body can tell when I’m unhappy and depressed- it gives up on me. My skin gets bad, my knees give out, colds last forever, my muscles hurt and my sleep suffers. I am a mess. I am sick of being a mess. So, 2018 is…
