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 see a message from FaceBook messenger from an old girlfriend from about 10 years ago, definitely not the normal notification I would get on my phone […]

The Side Hustle

In the effort to stay at home with my now four year old son I have started to feel the need for some extra income. I recently applied for and got a job back in the culinary industry to bring in a few extra dollars on the weekend when I am kid free. Ideally not what I was looking for but it’s one of this foot in the door and […]

48 Hours Kid Free

As a full time father of four it’s not often I can say that. It’s rare to have any time to myself let alone two full days. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to a quiet house, the sleeping in, the getting to do whatever I want to do. By having ME time has allowed me to keep my sanity most of the time when confronted with […]

I’m Not Dancing…

I signed up my little ones for a hip hop dance class at the YMCA on Monday nights. Tonight is week 2 of a 12 week run, I’ve watched my older daughters go through similar classes in the past but was unsure of what to expect with ages 3 and 5. It starts with a warmup basically organized chaos and running all around the gym. Loosening up leg and arm […]

Just Getting It Done

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 just super well behaved in the car for a couple of hours, his favorite reward being a Kinder Egg which he attacks with such enthusiasm every […]

2017 A Year in Pictures

It would seem that a lot of bloggers like to recap the year, as many of the sites that I follow and read have done this recently.  I also happen to think it is an excellent idea to take note of where you have been, so it can help you focus on exactly where you want to go.  I spent a part of my morning scrolling through my recent Google […]

The Emotional Roller Coaster

It was that kind of weekend for me, filled with the highest of highs and at the same time the lowest of lows.  These kind of weekends make life very interesting, at the same time can make life difficult to handle.  Things started earlier this week when I had to ask Emily to leave my house, giving her until Friday to find a new place to live. I had given […]

Ironman Muskoka 70.3 ~ July 8, 2018

I have written a bit about of the sport of triathlon since I’ve started this blog and there certainly will be more posts about it in the future, including today!  I have just registered myself for next summer’s Ironman race in Huntsville, Ontario at the beginning of July.  It is perhaps the biggest race in Ontario next year and will attract the world’s top athletes based on the beauty and […]

15 Random Hugs & Kisses

My son Austin is very affectionate. One of the many reason I stepped back from my career was to spend more time (and there was number 3 for today), with Austin.  Due to his birthday and the way the school system works, his birthday in January at the beginning of the year he is not going to start Junior Kindergarten until this coming September.  I could not think of a […]

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 to tell how I awesome I feel this morning, it’s almost like the heaven opened up on me and rained down. (I have the feeling I […]
