Monkey See, Monkey Doo

I didn’t quite understand just how much my actions would influence my children’s behaviour until very recently when I had a numerous of life hard truths that I had to first face, and then overcome.  The last few months I have had the absolute…

Why Do I Blog?

Interesting question?  And one I was forced myself to ask this past Sunday.  I woke up around 6am to get ready for work, and as usual I pick up my phone to see if there is anything important that may need my attention.  I…

Celebrating a BIG Win(s)!

So yesterday was a very interesting day for me, a bit of the continuation of the emotional roller coaster but in a good fun, let’s build towards something kind of day and NOT one with a huge drop back into negativity or despair.  Allow…

Morning all, so I wrote quickly yesterday morning about feeling a bit overwhelmed about the day ahead, and I am very happy to report that I got it all done, and then some! The morning was filled with driving around, and my boy was…

2017 Top 10 ~ Camping Trip to Ottawa (#3)

2017 Top 10 ~ Jeep Wrangler “Willy’s” (#4)

I loved my 2005 Saturn Vue, a car line that was discontinued at some point when American motor sales were struggling and GM closed down this particular line of vehicles.  I drove two of them in a row, and would have continued to purchase…

Sitting On Top of the World..

And I’m feeling fine!  To quote the famous singer Al Jolson. My mom introduced me to Al Jolson as a young child, and we would sit and watch The Jolson Story and Jolson Sings Again.  Talk about someone chasing their dreams! I cannot begin…

In a follow up of my post earlier this morning, Finding the Inner Strength to Do the Right Thing  these are the conditions that I wanted to talk to Emily about last night that she absolutely refused to even look at. Option 1 – Live at…

Finding the Inner Strength to Do the Right Thing
