Alone 14

In a world with a population of over 7 billion, do you ever feel like you’re alone and up against it on your own? From time to time, I feel like I’m literally the only person in the world and It’s such a lonely and sad, dark place. Somedays I feel frayed, like I’m going to fall apart at the seams and other days, I just don’t want to be around people whatsoever. People can be cruel, they can be mean but people can be the most hurtful, often when they aren’t even trying (hey, I’m guilty of it from […]

Things That Make Me Irrationally Annoyed or Angry 28

Hey guys! What better way to vent my thoughts and get everything off my chest than sharing it on the blog with all of you guys?  This topic has floated around the internets for a bit now, but I distinctly remember Stephanie posting on this matter not so long ago, so I thought it was high time for me to share my lengthy list that I’ve been keeping for months now and y’all can add in your annoyances, too, if you like.  I become annoyed or irrationally angry, often, about stupid or insignificant shit that I have zero control over.  Sometimes I […]


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 […]

Life lately in pictures  10

Do you ever feel like the days are getting away on you or you just can’t keep up?  That’s how I’m feeling lately.  Moments are fleeting and time is just whirling away on me… So, I thought I’d take the opportunity to post a life update in pictures today for good measure. Oh and if you want a nice visual (and a laugh), yesterday I was carrying a bowl back from the kitchen for a colleague and in the bowl were stuffed bell peppers.  With red sauce.  Can you guess where this is heading?  I spilled the bowl ALLLLLLLL down the front of […]


Charlie turns 10! 13

Our little man Charlie turns 10 years old today! You are such a sweet, funny, feisty and charismatic boy, Charlie and you bring us so much joy.  One of your best qualities is that you have this insatiable ability to win absolutely anyone over and make them fall in love with you.  You just love people in general and your zest for life shines through for all those that are blessed to meet you. So without further ado, we hope you have the happiest of birthdays, my boy — we hope you have a hundred more of them so that […]

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.
