I have not been a fan of this year, health-wise. It’s not like I’ve had any major health issues; I haven’t been hospitalized or even had to go to the ER this year (*knocking furiously on wood because this damn year is not over yet!*). But honestly, I think my immune system has gone on vacation somewhere warm and sunny without me because I have used up every single sick day I have available to me and then some. It’s ridiculous.Granted some of my…

how-to-beat-the-monday-or-any-day-blues

The blues suck, am I right? A lot of people suffer from the Monday Blues, when the weekend is over, the work week has just begun, and Friday night seems like an eternity away. Sometimes the Monday Blues actually start on Sunday, which can really rob you of the remainder of your weekend. I mean, the weekend is almost over, do you really want to waste what’s left fretting about Monday (and Tuesday, and Wednesday, and…)? Yeah, I didn’t think so.It’s easier said than done…

I had a nice quiet Mother’s Day so far today and honestly that’s exactly what I needed and wanted. It started off a little more exciting than I really needed though; just before 6 am I was woken up by a puking Breanna and that’s just never a good thing. It happened twice in the space of an hour and if you happened to hear a strange shattering sort of sound followed by tinkling that would have been my heart breaking when she tearfully asked me, “did…

It had been ages since I had done a photo day in the life post so I thought I would do one on Sunday. I had intended to post them all on Monday but Hayley stayed home from school because she wasn’t feeling well (fever and sniffles, etc) so I put it off until today.Here’s how my Sunday went.As much as I’d like to say I slept in until this time on a Sunday, well, no. I had been awake for awhile but I managed…

Portrait of a Saturday

at

Weekends are sometimes the two days of the week we look forward to the most. We might have plans with friends or just an outing of some sort – park (not now with all the snow, mind you), shopping, the used bookstore, whatever. And sometimes they are just really quiet and low-key.Especially when you have a six-year-old who comes home on the Friday from school, looking a little tired and grumpy, only to realize she’s actually coming down with a mild gastro. At that point, she…

Sick

at

I’ve spent the past half hour sitting on the living room floor watching Hayley sleep on the couch. She never sleeps during the day under normal circumstances but she caught the Ebola Cold and didn’t sleep much last night. I made her some soup for lunch but she was just sitting there staring at it so I asked if she’d like to try lying on the couch for a bit. She said okay and 20 minutes later, just before 2 pm she conked out.She’s woken…

Today I did great for my dentist appointment. I’m telling you, if you’re in Halifax and you need the names of some great dentists I can help you out. I love my dental team. That being said I’m very much looking forward to not seeing them again for a little while please and thank you.However, I was proud of myself today. I was all out of my trusty Rescue Remedy which I use to keep anxiety at bay and I was worried about how I would…

This home is quickly becoming a germ pit. Hayley is coughing and sneezing and sniffling like crazy, and she seems to feel absolutely miserable (especially if the whining about her nose is any indication, poor kid). Breanna is a little irritable but it’s hard to say whether she’s coming down with the plague too or whether it’s related to her teeth that are coming in, but she’s also sneezing a bit.George has allergies so I can never tell if he’s sick or not but…
