Meh

So this morning I ate nutella on toast because apparently, I’m 12. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

I also made soup and looked for my reading glasses. That killed about an hour. ๐Ÿ™„

(The soup was chicken and the glasses were on my head.) ๐Ÿ˜

A nothing post with pictures

My still teacherless child has been watching youtube videos on how to make space buns.

Space buns is a thing you do with hair. A type of hairstyle. Did you know this?

I didn’t. I do now and so do you. You’re welcome. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Sunday thoughts – with some colourful pictures

The boys are in baseball today. It means for a few precious hours, half the family will not be here.

Will I have time to write a steamy story?

Oh wait.

I got this guy hanging around.

Tucker, 3 months.

All the time

A recent visit by a friend with her daughter got us talking about how kids speak to people about certain topics. This one was about food, or more specifically, eating out at restaurants. Apparently her teen girl uses the expression “all the time” whenever she mentions restaurants she’s been to.

This mortifies her mom. ๐Ÿ˜ถ Continue reading “All the time”

20 minutes

Yesterday I had 20 minutes to myself. The entire day. Which began at 5 am.

I’m always up early. Mornings are my quiet time to write, or read. Except not now, because…puppy.

Me and 9 week old poop machine.

Back to reality after a long(ish) escape

I filled out an online profile for the Ontario government while looking for a job to get me out of the house (or out of my head if the job is work from home).

I have experience in a variety of fields (flight attendant/office/marketing/support/training/technical writing/editing) but not recently – I’ve been home for 15 years tending to children. While at home, I did some editing and proofreading on the side, worked a few contract jobs, but haven’t been employed full-time while the aviation partner was doing his thing, coming and going without rhyme or reason.

Then the kids started competitive sports…

So I started a dog walking business. That was just on the upswing when COVID happened. (Everyone around here is working from home and doesn’t need a dog walker anymore…) ๐Ÿ˜ž

Anyway, the time has come for me to get on with it. I have a project on the go that I’m not ready to unveil just yet, but in the meantime I’m keeping an eye on the job market too.

I figured, why not look into the government job banks?

Well that was my first mistake. ๐Ÿ™„ Continue reading “Back to reality after a long(ish) escape”

Glass half full vs glass half empty

I live a weird life.

I’m sure you’re not surprised at this revelation… ๐Ÿ™„

Sunday morning coffee at mom’s.

Allow me to elaborate:

I live in two main residences. #spoiled

There’s the house I co-own with the kids’ dad, and there’s the home I grew up in where my mom lives.

I travel back and forth between both houses almost every week…

Here’s the thing:

I like this arrangement. ๐Ÿ˜ณ #weird

Bullet points

โ™  I have started a little venture. I have some new ideas about things and have diligently worked on those while the family was absent (camping trip) for the past few days (they’re back now). I’m close to completion and launching and hope I don’t chicken out.

โ™ฃ I have been cycling every evening. And walking occasionally. Like today. I walked to the store to get milk and yogurt. #GOMA

โ™ฅ Children are weird. Did you know this? Maybe not all children, but certainly mine.๐Ÿ˜‰ Or at least my girl child is… This is what happened: Continue reading “Bullet points”
