Mya isn't feeling well and kept me up for most of the night, thankfully it just seems to be a cold, but is she ever miserable when she's sick. Not fun... lol! So, i'm running on next to no sleep so have decided to do a bunch of nothing today... Continue reading

I sit down to blog, and have a handful of "half-posts" written up, but then either get called away to do something else or think to myself, "who cares, who would even want to read this" and I end up deciding just to leave it be for another day... So... Continue reading

Today has been a good day overall... Dh got home and set up his new leather recliner and put it to the side of the living room. He walked Mya to school to give me a little break so I could get to work early. I made him breakfast and... Continue reading

It's going to take me a while to get used to this new routine with Mya being in school now... I'm hoping by the end of the week my body has adjusted and I can find my 'flow', but right now, not so easy. 6:00 am - first alarm goes... Continue reading

Today I want to share a bit about a friend's business I'm really impressed with, MadMatters. They sell these adorable HugRugs which recycle tshirts instead of letting them fill up our landfills! Amazing right!? Read the story behind them then check out this interesting TED-ed feature! Here is the story... Continue reading

*** It's time for "Five Things Friday"! I'm feeling pretty scattered right now so it's a perfect post for today! Mya is now in public school and quite enjoying it so far! It's only 2 days in, but she's made a bunch of new friends and is really happy, which... Continue reading

Does the same hold true for alarms? LOL!!! This is going to take some getting used to... **** **** First day of school for Mya today, (ever) and Maria is back at it today as well! It's going to be an interesting day and I'll definitely have to get myself... Continue reading

**** I'm a little late posting for "Happy Homemaker Monday" with the lovely and crazy talented Sandra today, but I've been sewing up a storm today with a few gorgeous new EO pouches as I'm trying to build up some stock on my sewing page now that I'm up &... Continue reading

It's so beautiful!! I've heard of Joken I'll definitely have to pop in when I make it over there one day! :) Thanks for the idea!
Thanks Rhonda, those are my thoughts as well, but I have a feeling she's really going to enjoy it! She's a lot more "social" than Maria is and thrives around other people. Ebay sales can be so time consuming, so I understand where you're coming from. I hope you're able to make lots of sales this month!!

Thanks Rhonda... :) I know I'm not really giving myself enough time, it's just hard some days and I notice it more. Yes, Dh is overnights again (which he really didn't want, but for now he has no choice). Yes, lower pay because of the area and unfortunately he lost all seniority etc... :(
Mya is going to school this week, Maria has *zero* interest so she'll be staying home with me. Child #2 will be applying to University soon!!
Yes, right!! That gives me an extra day to get my things done anyways! LOL!
Yes, she can... she'll have time so it'll be nice to have her home for a hot lunch! :) No, I don't sew clothes, that's a whole new thing I don't have the time or energy for. My machine isn't made for knits either, so I'd have to invest in another machine...
Thanks Kathleen! She's very excited, so I'm hoping she really enjoys it! :)
Not bad overall... I need to find Mya a raincoat & umbrella 'cause I forgot we get a lot of rain here.. *sigh* So hunting for those today too!
Yucky math... ;) hahha!!
That makes me happy to hear! It probably is the same one!! :)
Mya has decided to go to school this year. She never had much interest up until now, but right now she really wants to go to the local school to see what it's like. It's a very small school for grades 1-5, has about 110'ish kids or so in the... Continue reading

*** I can't wait to simply be "caught up" with everything... my list "runneth over" and there's honestly not enough hours in the day to get everything that needs done, accomplished during my waking hours. This move has been tough, some days I miss "home", other days I don't. Today... Continue reading

*** September is finally here... to say that August has been a whirlwind would be a huge understatment. Between moving 2200km halfway across the country, dh flying back to Ontario for surgery on one of my kids, and deciding to put Miss Mya into a very small public school (100+... Continue reading
