Thursday Thoughts before turning 34 tomorrow 2

What is up my friends?  I have no idea what to write today other than it has been a seriously long week and I’m very glad that tomorrow is Friday. Tomorrow is also my 34th birthday.  Tomorrow is also the day I buried my dear father 31 years ago.  My birthday is always a mixture of a happy and sad time because I am reminded of the man that I was robbed of knowing.  I would like to think I have memories of him deep within, but I was only 2 years old (turning 3).  The things I do think […]

Thursday Thoughts

Venting

Venting 6

I should’ve posted this a few weeks back when I initially wrote it, but then I didn’t and I thought better of it at the time.  Now I’ve just decided f*ck it, just post it, Lindsay. So here’s something from a couple of weeks ago when I was in such a mood, I needed to vent bad! I’m upset and overwhelmed and frustrated and angry.  Why is my body screaming out and failing on me? Why am I the person that constantly gets shit on or dumped on?   Why do I take on so much? Why don’t I ask for (more) […]


Life Lately & Charlie Update – 28 days Post-Op! 10

How do most of you balance life and blogging?  I struggle HARD to carve out time to blog.  With working during the day and then trying to catch up on blogs and comments in sporadic pockets or when I’m commuting two hours daily, or whether it’s trying to put down my phone so that I’m more present and engaged in real life, the struggle is real.  There’s not much I can do to improve this situation other than to just deal with it and manage it accordingly.   And so here is where I catch up on all things Life Lately […]

Sentence a Day

A Sentence a Day – June Edition 12

A couple of months ago, I stumbled upon Julie’s blog, Julie’s Touch of Style, through our Peaceful Posse Facebook group in one of the daily blog threads and I kind of fell in love with the idea of summarizing each day of the month with one or two sentences, hence the name A Sentence A Day.  April’s Sentence a Day post is here if you’d like to read it and May’s Sentence a Day can be found here. Leslie is kind enough to organize the link up and it opens up the first Thursday of each and every month.  So if you feel like playing […]


A Sentence a Day – May Edition 13

I guess it would be two months ago that I stumbled upon Julie’s blog, Julie’s Touch of Style, through our Peaceful Posse Facebook group in one of the daily blog threads and I kind of loved the idea of summarizing each day of the month with one or two sentences, hence the name A Sentence A Day.  So, I followed along last month and wrote out a sentence or two for each of the days of April and I said I wasn’t going to link up for May but here I am. Leslie kindly organizes the link up and it opens […]

Mid-May and flying through the month

Mid-May and flying through the month 10

How is it that we’re already halfway through May? May is just FLYING by!  On one hand, it’s great because our camping trip is just a mere 38 days away and we are getting quite excited. That might sound cheesy but we used to go camping all the time and haven’t in years, so we’re looking to get our feet wet again and we’re going all out with an interior/portaging 7-day trip in Algonquin Park.  I will write a separate post about this soon and how much we’ve spent, what we’re packing, and where we’re going, if anyone is interested.
