Simon’s heirarchy

19 May 2005 Uncategorized

Simon is 15 and 1/2 months old. In my completely unbiased opinion, he is the cutest, most flirtatious, charmingest baby ever. (Well, at least since Tristan.) He is also the most mischevious baby ever, bar none. He is in the naming phase now. He walks around the house pointing at things and informing us what […]

WW progress report #1

18 May 2005 Uncategorized

Don’t run screaming never to come back, I promise I won’t subject you to weekly weigh-ins and mercurial reports on my weight watchers progress. But sheesh, I gotta come up with something to write about every day. As I mentioned last week, I’ve become quite neurotic about counting up my points. I have 22 points […]

An ode to doughnuts

17 May 2005 Uncategorized

Doughnuts are a very Canadian treat. According to the CBC, there are more doughnut shops per capita in Canada than in any other country, and we eat more doughnuts than other country’s citizens. Canada has one-third the number of doughnut shops that the States has – with one-tenth of the population. The jury is still […]

13 May 2005 Uncategorized

We’re off on our little camping adventure, although I have my doubts that we will be able to fit everything in the car and still have room for the kids. I swear, packing for 24 hours is as difficult if not more troublesome than packing for a week. And although we’re not canoe camping deep […]

I love the library

12 May 2005 Uncategorized

You know what continues to amaze me? Libraries. I love libraries. I love the idea of libraries. I love the fact that libraries have serious books and fun books and naughty books and children’s books and reference books and comic books. I love tactile stimulation of the library, of walking between looming stacks, the smell […]

They won!!

11 May 2005 Uncategorized

(Spoiler warning: Amazing Race results will be discussed. I stayed up half the friggin’ night to watch it, so if you taped it you’d better quit now if you don’t want to know who won. And yes, staying up until 11 pm does count as half the friggin’ night when your day begins at 4:45 […]

Will work for points

10 May 2005 Uncategorized

Well, I finally did it. I forked over my $85 bucks and bought myself a 3 month membership to weight watchers online yesterday. I figure three months will get me near enough to the fall sweater season that I can say I gave it my best effort and bury my bathing suit in a pile […]

10 reasons I love my kids today

8 May 2005 Uncategorized

A while ago, gratitude journals were all the rage. I think Oprah lead the charge on that one. While it smacks of saccharine, I have to admit that when life gets crazy, it’s easy to lose sight of all the wonderful things I have to be thankful for every single day. It’s Mother’s Day, so […]

You love doing your own thing and going on your own adventures, but there are close friends you know you just […]
