Hello 2020!

It’s a new year everyone! Happy New Year to all!

It is a time for new chances, a fresh start, a new beginning, a new chapter in your life.

Last year, was a tough one for me. I plummeted earlier on in the year and it was hard work mentally to be stable and get back on my feet. I did a large amount of self-care to get where I’m at, and still not really where I should be, but I am better.

I know that paying attention to what my mind and body are telling me, is the road to recovery and it’s only a matter of time and healing.

The year 2020 sounds so promising and strong in itself, that really it is a push, isn’t it?

2020…, it sounds a resounding kick in the ass and should be taken seriously, at least, that’s how I hear it.

Starting right from the beginning of January, it will be all about me. I really need it to be about me. Who is going to take care of me best, well, except, me?

So this year, I am my New Years’ resolution.

I wish for everyone to find their happiness this year and move forward in their life and do what makes you happy.

2020 will be about less pain and more laughter, and stronger relationships, be around with real people who get you and just want the best for you.  Find yourself this 2020 and when you do, don’t ever change. For anyone.

Wishing you health, wealth and success as we celebrate this new year!

Hello December!

Hello December, you have arrived very quickly I must say!

Nevertheless, it’s already December and I must put on my comfiest shoes and trudge forward, along with many other Canadians (and the world) to start Christmas shopping.

If you’re one of those people who are done, well damn, then I applaud you!

Every year I say to myself that I will be just like you, to be done with my list before the December month even shows up.

Well, uh, nope, not me. Failed again on that wishful thinking.

Today is the day I really get started with my Xmas list.

The children’s list isn’t that long, but they’re adult children and that means the items are pricey!

So bare in mind for those mommies who have little ones right now, enjoy this time, because you can basically buy the cutest and not so expensive things ever, and they would be jumping up and down with glee.

I’m not saying that my kids aren’t grateful, they sure are, because the list they give me, well, I practically buy everything on that list, it’s just more pricey. (Parents, you know what I mean)

For example, my Bronson (middle child) on his list is this sweater for over $ 240! Ummm what the heck? Oh right, “it’s a Supreme mom!” Oh ok yes, I totally understand, I’m paying for that damn label. Got it.

See what I mean? LOL

I like to run my household with lists.

I can’t function without a list.

Christmas Lists; are wonderful. Simple. Focused and Direct!

That’s why I use them. I don’t need to go wander around getting dizzy for what the heck to buy my three children and husband.

They give me the list and off I go! (I do, of course, buy other things that are not in their list)

I am most thankful for my husband’s list because he is the pickiest & hardest person to buy for! OMG major anxiety and stress buying for him!

This year I’ve been experimenting with baking, and I am hell happy to incorporate my tasty Cheddar cheese biscuits, Chocolate Banana muffins, and my daughters Gingerbread cookies into our traditional Christmas dinner.

What are your favorite goodies to bake for Christmas?

Have you started shopping yet or are you done?!

I would love to hear your thoughts!

Have a Happy December month my peoples!

Our Anniversary – November 10th 2019

We met in high school

In math class.

I see you in the cafeteria as I head into another class

Wondering why you’re not in one

I come back and you’re still there

And it’s lunchtime

I think to myself, this guy doesn’t take school very seriously

And wouldn’t ever date him.

We meet at my friend’s party

In her basement

And there you were

Looking gorgeous

Suddenly I feed you food from my plate

As Greggory Abbott begins his song

And we dance for the first time

I threaten to kill you many years later,

As you say your tired and want to take a quick nap in the hospital parking lot, as I go through contractions, willing our daughter to hurry up and join our lives.

You call me during the afternoon and asked what I’m doing and I said “I just put our boys down for their nap” and you said for me to say it again, and I asked to say what?

You said ‘our boys’…

We all lay down on the grass, all 5 us, in a circle with our heads touching, gazing at a million stars above us, as we hear the waves crashing onto the rocks, The Confederation Bridge in full view.

It’s Xmas morning as we hear our children yelling at us with excitement to hurry up so we can open gifts, they are all adults.

This is our life together, our marriage, our commitment…

It shows real strength & real love.

Happy Anniversary to us.
