Usually by April and May, the last place I want to go is a mall. Why?Continue reading “Mom life: Adventures with the teen girl”

This is what my life feels like at the moment – suspended in a holding pattern. Like those planes, when they try to land at an airport but the airport is busy and the incoming plane has to wait its turn for a designated time slot to begin approach. They stack them, like a coil in the sky…
Anyway, I won’t go on about it, but today’s holding pattern (I have multiple ones, ugh) is brought to you by covid. Meh.Continue reading “Holding patterns”
A few weeks ago I had a first-time experience at a nail salon. 💅
My 14 year old daughter was staying with me and my mom over parts of her spring break when she approached me with this:
“I know you’ve never been to a nail salon,” she said. “I thought it might be fun for us to do this together.”
Now, how can I say no to such a cute invitation?Continue reading “Evil spell”
You know how sometimes life throws you these curveballs?
This is a baseball expression and means something unexpected and surprising happens for which you are unprepared.
Well it happened and it derailed me (again). But this time, it’s not a superficial misunderstanding, a miscommunication or some other unimportant-in-the-grand-scheme-of-things issue which left me hanging in mid air, unresolved.
Not this time.Continue reading “Quotes from a testimonial and a short update”
Seriously, if one more thing happens this week… Oh wait. It’s only Tuesday. 🙄
My teen girl and I were dealing with the aftermath of a phone call from a family member who had just called and talked to my mom.
Sonja and I were in the same room while she talked on the phone.Continue reading “And then we lost grandma (she’s fine)”
For reasons which are neither here nor there, the Beagle pup did not get his regular walk this morning.
Everybody left early and only I came back to the house.Continue reading “A day in the life of Sir Tucker the Beagle”
*not really 🥴
There is something peaceful about early mornings. It’s a time that belongs all to myself.
It’s quiet. Most, almost all people I know are still asleep. There’s a serenity that fuels my soul and spirit when the sky is showing just a hint of colour by the impending sunrise.Continue reading “My mother gave me a heart attack*”
The other day I tried to entice my daughter to select some tarot cards, just to pull her off her screens for a bit.
“Na,” she said. 😐
Ugh. This endlessness of lockdown will be the end of us all. I bet the kids will be the next thing to mutate, into robots probably. 👾🤖
Anyway, I didn’t know what to do to excite her away from the screens. I thought a bit, then suggested we get Tucker involved.
“Let’s get Tucker to pull a card,” I proposed and immediately regretted speaking those words out loud.
WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? 😬Continue reading “Beagle shenanigans with tarot cards”
I don’t know what it is with teenagers, but
sometimes often, less is definitely more.
