This is what happens when you arm a teen girl with a brush and hair elastics.
Or when you sit your sorry adult ass on the sofa for a moment, unsuspecting of any imminent hair styling adventures about to take place on your noggin.

Now that I have a driving teenager I find myself a lot more aware in how I drive, and what I say when I drive.

I’m sure all of you who are dog owners are responsible dog-poop-picker-uppers.

My hair is trying to kill me.
Every morning it’s a miracle I wake up alive and not suffocated by my Rapunzel locks. 🤪

For as long as we owned the house (20 years) this asshat behind us used to blare his music across the entire neighbourhood. It didn’t matter what time of day or night it was, he was having a party and playing his music with open windows.
This weekend I sat outside and did some yard work for the bulk of the day and reveled in the fact that all I could hear was children playing, dogs barking occasionally, or other random backyard noises. No music, not even quiet music.
It was almost like the neighbours were being respectful. 😳
There’s a reason for that. The asshat has moved away. 🙂🎉🤩🎊

There is a grocery store in my neighbourhood called Farm Boy that is incredibly well managed.

I returned to my house and family yesterday afternoon and went to bed at 6:00 o’clock. I woke up the next morning a quarter after 8:00 a.m. Frankly, that’s too much sleep.
I did not sleep well. The pain in my neck and shoulder is still here, although not as bad as it was before, but I’m getting fed up now. I canceled the last two massages but I will go on Wednesday because I think part of the problem is my back is really tight. I will continue to stretch, maybe up the time a little bit, and hope I can finally get rid of that pinched nerve or whatever is challenging me. If by April things haven’t improved significantly I’m going to book a physio session.

Sometimes I really struggle with this on-again-off-again part-time parenting I do these days. I mean, I’m still parenting from afar, I’m just not living in the house full-time.
Sorry. I should explain a bit of background for those who are new to my blog. (Welcome! I see quite a few new followers!)

While taking a bit of a blogging break, I decided to teach myself how to create a website from an existing blog. Meaning, I wanted to have a home page that was fixed (static) and add pages that will guide you to other parts of my creative journey. One of those pages is my blog, but there are other pages as well.
There is a reason for this. And you will see what my plans are soon. (I’m slow with progress, mostly due to external interruptions that are beyond my control, but I will not let anyone stress me out. It will happen when I’m ready.)
Life has been a bit of a slog recently. The neck pain plus the endless lockdown measures have worn me down, not to mention the whole parenting teens thing; one kid is turning 16 on the weekend. I mean…what? How does this happen?
