Happy Turkey Day

To all my friends online and in real life, I want to take a minute to wish you a very happy Turkey Day, to hope that you are safe, happy, healthy and surrounded by love.

And I wanted to ask you something, to which I hope you ultimately say "no" so that I can start feeling like a cool, hip, up with the trends type person again...

In the past month or so I have read about a product on three different websites and tehn, again, this morning on a link I clicked through VIA Yahoo.


Yeah. Weird word eh? I checked it out and apparently its this ball exercise type thingy that is super cool.

Have you ever heard of it?

So Blue

Go ahead and read this post, no, really, go on, I will wait.




Back? Yeah. So now you can see why I haven't needed any appetite suppressants to keep me away from the last of the Halloween candy, huh?

Yeah. Much Suckage.

Know what doesn't sucks? This:

See, today was "Blue" day in Kindergarten. the theme of the past month has been oceans and marine life, and to end out the theme all the kids had to dress in blue. As per usual, I went above and beyond in the theme adding a whales and sea turtle button up shirt to the mix. He was, of course, adorable!

A First!

Well. a SORT OF first, In the summer we got a credit card so that we could reserve a hotel room for our vacation. We reserved it online with the credit card, but the cost of the hotel room never actually made it onto the card, we paid cash for that.

So I feel pretty confidant saying that I have finally, for the first time, used my credit card online. To be honest, I was quite nervous entering the number online but my husband said our card has some sort of identity theft protection on it.

I bought the Pioneer Woman's Cook book on and it arrived just a few days ago. Its awesome! Ive made plans already to make the lasagna - minus the ground breakfast sausage becuase I can't figure out what that is or where to buy it!

Amazon.CA is much different from the US site. It makes me sad and kind of angry. I can get books, movies and video games on the Canadian site, compared to being able to get just about ANYTHING on the US site.

I wish websites would realize that Canadians like to shop just as much as Americans!

Does anyone else wish that those wee mini chocolate bars for Halloween were really slimming pills in disguise?


Logan hasn't had his hives in such a long time! He has an appointment on the 14th of December with the ENT and one on the 24th of December (YES!! Christmas Eve) with the allergist. I'm very excited for both the appointments, I sure wish time would fly just a little bit faster!

I need to make him an appointment to get his eyes checked though, he keeps complaining about headaches and I need to rule out vision problems before I push the matter with his doctor, who has so far, been unwilling to really dig for what is causing the headaches.

Seeing as me and Micah both wear glasses, and both of our parents also wear glasses (as well as our middle son) there is a very high chance the headaches are realted in some way to his vision!

Making Room

I wanted Blake to sleep upstairs so I could keep an eye on him better, but because his headache is so bad, he did not want to stay in the living room with all of the noise. Our solution was to pull out the trundle bed and have him sleep in Logan's room.

But first, I had to clean Logan's room. He likes to bring toys upstairs from the basement and within a few weeks it is impossible for him to have a clean room, simply becuase he has too many toys and no place to put them.

While he was in the bathtub I took a big black garbage bag into his room and bundled up a LOT of the toys and took them to the storage room to hide. While I was in the storage room I tripped over the suitcases, stubbing my big toe and finding out that the big suitcase in our set is ripped open by the zipper.

I'm glad I noticed this now and not the night before I tried to pack us for a trip, now I can search at my leisure for some good Samsonite luggage to replace our set.

The set is old, anyway, When I graduated high school, it was a gift from my father. (I took the hint and moved out)

Logan got out of the tub and he noticed his room was clean, but did not notice that more than half of his toys were missing!

The boys are both in there, and Blake is already asleep. I'm looking forward to not having to go downstairs in the dead of the night to check on him!

The Weather Man is Teasing Me

So today Micah comes home from work and you wanna know what he told me? That the weather forecast is for plus ten this weekend. Ordinarily this would be cause for celebration but now, when everyone is sick, this is the last thing I want to hear.

The warm up cool down, warm up cood down cycle gets me sick every single year. Without fail. Right now I am doing my level best not to fall prey to the children's flu germs, so the news that it is once again going to warm up only to cool down again is the Worst.News.Ever.

I think we need to look into some six month long orlando vacations. Pull the kids out of school, pretend to home school them while we visit all the sights Florida has to offer.

FYI : Florida is WARM, Saskatchewan is COLD.
