My day yesterday...  


I'm taking a break from my work to type a post to you. Yesterday I spent the afternoon with my son. We took the camera and his bike and headed off for a walk. We ended up at the dollar store. Our favorite place. I could spend hours in that place. It's just huge. So we picked up the things we needed to and left. Ty just loves taking his bike everywhere. I was paying attention to other things when he told me to stop. It was lunch time and everyone was walking to get lunch. I just happened to stop in front of an ant hill. You know usually these things don't creep me out but today it did because they started crawling on my sandles and up my legs. I screamed and took off my sandals and started banging them on the sidewalk. I must have looked crazy but I was not going to keep my composure so then the ants could eat my legs. Ty just sat there and laughed and laughed. I just shook my head...and walked on.

I have another fun quiz for you all...try it out...please??

Are you normal?

Look at that I just did that quiz and I'm normal...man that's not good!!

I enrolled my baby into KINDERGARTEN!!!  

I can't believe my son will be going to kindergarten in the fall. It seems like yesterday I had him. Well may be not yesterday. I can still remember the nights when I woke up and fed him by TV light. I remember the cool shows that are on at four a.m. But that was before I learned about co-sleeping...it made nursing more enjoyable and I got a lot more sleep. BUT enfortunately he is still in our bed. Or more like my husband and son's bed. I sleep on the couch. When I was stuck in the hospital for two weeks I realized how much more sleep I got when I slept alone. So there it was I just resumed sleeping on the couch and left the guys in the room all by themselves. I don't know how my son sleeps there. My husband snores so bad he wakes me up!!! And I am like three rooms over...I can't wait until we go camping this summer and I'm stuck in the same tent with him for a week....

My question for today is...

What is the funniest thing your husband/boyfriend/partner does???

Here it is a MONDAY!!  

Gosh, the weeks seem like they are flying. It's less than a month until my surgery and now I am finally telling people about it. I went to the eye doctor today. He says there's no reason why I should continue to see him until after my MRI's in July. They have no idea what happened that day I got the chest pains and my hand went numb and my left eye went blank. I just hope the MRI shows something that they can finally say....that's what happened. I'm not concerned about it being MS anymore. I just want an answer. I am sick of having a numb hand. But you know nothing happens without a reason.

Now that I have totally depressed everyone, here is today's question...

If you could have one wish what would it be?

Have a good day...and keep smiling....

Some of My Favorite Blogs  

I have been reading alot of blogs lately I can't get over how people show how to reveal themselves to others. There is something about a blog that is caring and wonderful and I love mine. I treat them like babies taking care of them everyday. Here are some of my favorites:

7Confessions she is a crazy girl (not literally...well may be literally) that is enjoying her single life for now. (Well until she marries Johnny Depp). Join her everyday for views on things that you never expect...she is a wonderful girl....

PostSecret I have read all his books and now he has a blog. I can't believe that every Sunday he adds new postcards that I have never seen. (People send him postcards about their Secret and he publishes them on-line (and in his books).

Absolutely True Bringing you today's celebrity news and gossip, weird and bizarre things...She wraps it up in one little package.

Covers of Popular Songs If you like music like I do you would like this site. There is videos of all sorts of people doing covers for songs. Some are very interesting.

One Bite at a Time This blogger takes just about anything and eats it...telling you exactly what it tastes like. I don't where the blogger gets this stuff but some things are classic.

My question of the day is....

What is your favorite blog??

Here was my project of the day...plant my first rock garden. I have always just put them in pots but this year I decided I would try the ground. I planted some bulbs already and they are coming up...you just can't see them. (It's funny to think just a couple of days ago this bush was covered in snow!)

A sad story...  

I went to see my father-in-law today. He told me that he was babysitting a puppy. This puppy was so cute. After cuddling with the puppy he finally told me the story of the puppy. The puppy was found in a fox hole with his sister. Someone had cut off his sisters leg so he dragged his sister in a fox hole and took care of her. What a horrible thing for a little puppy to go through. He seems to be ok now...but I'm sure mentally he will always remember what he did for his sister. I don't think it's fair or necessary to treat animals like that. My father-in-law said the person did that to the puppy's sister as a game. How can someone think that that is a cool game....a sick sick person I gather.

A moving website  

Friday, May 25, 2007

A moving website has come to my attention. Why I Picked This Blog: "Road to Freedom" chronicles an experience that most of us will never be able to imagine. The author has been working for over a year to adopt and bring home Alex, a 13-year-old boy from Ethiopia. He chronicles everything from hardship and hope to bureaucracy to the joys of his interactions with Alex to Alex’s current life and environment to trying to get inside the head of the adolescent whose life is waiting in the wings.It is an amazing journey, both heartbreaking and inspiring. And I can’t wait to read about Alex’s discovery of and adjustment to life in his new home.I discovered “Road to Freedom” a few weeks ago, and each time I read it I am inspired. When I think things are rough with my “Office Space-ish” job or my never-enough finances, I read about the roadblocks Alex and his new family have encountered in this journey and their perseverance in moving forward, and I know that human beings can do anything if we love and care enough.This is a critical time in Alex’s journey, so I hope you’ll visit.

Here is the link: http://alex-roadtofreedom.blogspot.com/

Thank you.

On one of our walks I saw this poor tire. A couple of summers ago there was extensive flooding in this area. It's neat to walk through because you find so many treasures of things that got swept down the river. This tire was probably one of them. You know we went back the next day and the tire had been moved. I'm glad I caught a picture of it.

I'm sooo tired today  

Well today has been a very crappy day. This morning at 3 AM the fire alarm went off in our building. I don't even really remember gathering everyone and leaving the apartment. We went outside and were greeted with SNOW!!! I can't say I have ever seen snow anywhere so late in May before. So because of that I am so tired. I have been kinda walking around like a zombie. All I want to do is crawl onto the couch and go to sleep. But since I am a Freelance Writer I have lots of work to do for people. That's what sucks about working at home for yourself...you know you just can't go lay on the couch for a nap if you want. My son and I fight over the computer all day so if he is watching TV then I can get my work done.

Today's question:

Do you wish you could work from home...if you don't? And if you do what is your favorite part of being home?

Getting Old  

I have been trying to think of what to write all day. I have come up with nothing. Really nothing has happened that has stuck out in my mind. Except when I went to the grocery store. (I go there everyday, mostly to get out of the house.) There was this lady in front of me. On Wednesday's its Seniors day there. She complained the bus was late and there was no way she would finish all her shopping. It was just crazy thinking that may be one day that would be me...but you know I'm too perfect to be like that. I'm sure my kids will send me to an old folks home because I drive them crazy already.

When I was in high school my best friend had the most charming grandmother. She would just sit there and talk to you about everything. If you were ever down you could go to her and talk to her and she would always make you laugh. EVERYTIME! I would definitely have to say she was the most interesting person in my life.

Today's question is:

WHo is the most interesting person in your life??

Have a good day and keep smiling.

So here it is...  

So today I had to take a brain test. About a year ago I had these chest pains and my hand went numb and my left eye lost about 45% of it's vision. So I have been to doctors and I've had a MRI and a CT scan and still they can't find out what's wrong. I finally got referred to an MS clinic to get tested to see if I have that. The MS doctor said she was pretty confident that it wasn't MS but she would be willing to just test me one more time because an amount of time has passed and the symptoms haven't went away.

So the first test she has got me going to is the Evoked Potential test. They put these paddy type things to your scalp. They don't hurt. And you look at this screen that has blocks that rotate to different colors. It is supposed to measure how long until your brain "fires" an electric charge. So if it isn't getting through or it is taking longer they can find that out. I was really scared but hey it was painless! Now I wish I could say the same for my hysterectomy.

I won't get the results of these tests until after my MRI...It's scheduled for a week or so after my hysterectomy.

The question for the day is:

When was the last time you were at the hospital?

Have a good night...KEEP SMILING

MY personal Response to the Bully Article  

Monday, May 21, 2007

I was very moved as were others about this bullying article I included. I thought I would share my personal experiences on the subject.

It all started for me in the seventh grade. I had just moved to a new school and I wanted to be accepted. One day we were all talking on the bus about weird things. (I don't want to get into the topic because to this day I am still embarrased to tell people.) The next day I went and told these people something that they took the wrong way. So from grade seven to grade eleven I was bugged about it. People would say things to me in the hallway and they would even write rude things in my yearbook about it. I would be so upset because the worst things would be said on the way home on the bus.

I couldn't tell my mom about it because she would just say it was my fault somehow and I couldn't tell anyone at school because at that time it was something you never did. So I went through high school with this on my back. I'm sad to say though that I ended up writing a suicide letter to the school to read if I ended up commiting suicide...(Here it is...I have never shared this with anyone before...but if it makes one person go tell someone about their bullying it's worth it.)

Please read aloud,
For all those people that bugged me
Thanks for making me do this
The pressure became too much for me
I couldn't handle it anymore.
I warned you but you never listened, I thought
you would act a bit older.
I thought if I told what I did to the people
on my bus in grade seven I thought I would be popular. Well,
look what happened, you told everyone and it's
haunted me for five years. I thought it might carry on till
high school ended, I had to get out, I couldn't handle it.
For all those people I love out there, you know who you are
"I love you and never will forget about you, so don't forget me.
You were the ones who changed my life, you were there when I
nedded you, my support and my help!"

That was kinda creepy to write down...but it had to be said. These kids need to go for help before it can get to this point. We should all be so lucky to live in a perfect world I guess.

Bullies  

Sunday, May 20, 2007

I was reading the newspaper this morning and I stumbled on this newspaper article. It is about a girl who committed suicide because she was being bullied. I have the article here for you to read.

Sun, May 20, 2007 Bullied girl takes her life
Loved ones say constant tormenting to blame for teen's tragic death By SARAH KENNEDY

EDITOR'S NOTE: As a rule, the Sun does not report on suicides. That policy is based on the fear any publicity might spur others to take such drastic action. When the family of 13-year-old Linda Cook contacted the Sun wishing to tell their daughter's tragic tale, we decided it was an important story worth sharing with other parents. Their message, and that of others who knew Linda, is that bullying can lead to more than tears.

Through all the torment of being called names, having her hair pulled and her lunch bag stolen, Linda Cook never uttered one bad word against her bullies. Instead, the gentle 13-year-old did the only thing she believed would end the suffering -- she took her own life.

On Thursday afternoon, Linda rode the school bus home for the final time. She sat in silence as kids took off their shoes and rubbed their dirty feet in her hair. When it reached her stop, she snatched her stolen bag back from the bullies and ran off the school bus -- tripping and falling in the process -- while the cruel laughter of her tormenters followed her as she ran home. She locked herself in her bedroom and hanged herself. Her 11-year-old sister Michaela found her shortly after.

For two days, Linda, who was declared brain-dead upon arrival at Alberta Children's Hospital, was hooked to life support so that her family could donate her organs.

"We had to make a decision about what Linda would want," said her mother Vanessa.

"Now that her eyes have been donated, someone else can see... she had such beautiful eyes."

Yesterday, Linda was taken off life support with her heartbroken family surrounding her and wondering how it ever got to this point. Although Linda didn't leave a note, Vanessa has no doubts the constant torment led her beloved daughter to take her life.

When the bullying began about a year ago at the Piitoyias Family School, a Native program run out of Colonel Walker community school in the southeast, Linda, who was taller and a bit heavier than other kids her age, did what all experts say to do -- she told the grown-ups in her life.
She told her mother, a school counsellor and even her bus driver and confidante Lori Kimmel, but the torment continued.

"They made fun of her hair and clothes," said Vanessa.

"She was a larger girl but she was healthy.

"She would tell me what was going on and we'd hug and kiss and I'd say her family loves her and it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks.

"I told her she could handle anything but I guess she couldn't ... I guess it was too much for her."
Michaela said when kids called her older sister fat, the two of them would just walk away.

"She always said I was over-protective of her, but I was OK with that," she said.

"We were never apart."

If the kids failed to see how special Linda was, those who loved her such as Kimmel -- her bus driver for the last year -- didn't. "She had such a love inside of her and I couldn't understand why they were so mean," Kimmel said, choking back sobs. "She never lost her kindness through all of this." In fact, Kimmel was so touched by the young teen she would attend her school recitals just to show support.

Despite the inner turmoil, Linda continued volunteering at a local consignment store for needy people and kept watch over the younger neighbourhood kids when they were playing outside.
She went to church every Sunday and continued to share her recess snacks with the very people who made her life a living hell.

Vanessa said Linda had even been taking stilt-walking lessons and had planned to perform at a children's festival this summer.

It was because of those things that those around her thought she had a good handle on the bullying.

"I didn't think it was affecting Linda as much as it affects other kids because she was talking about it," said Kimmel.

Kimmel said she tried really hard to protect Linda. She even kept the Grade 7 student on the bus with her until the bell rang some mornings so she wouldn't have to be in the school yard with the other kids.

"I went to the school to talk to them about Linda but it happens to so many kids -- it's just so overwhelming," she said.

"I don't totally blame the teachers because kids can be so sneaky."

Vanessa said she also doesn't hold the school responsible for her daughter's death.

"So many people tried to protect her but no one can be everywhere at all times," she said.

"Her school counsellor was so kind to her but I just wish more could have been done."

Both the school counsellor and Kimmel went to the hospital while Linda was still on life support.

"It broke my heart," said Kimmel.

"She never had the chance to have her first dance or her first love."

Grandma Elaine said the devastated family is telling Linda's story to prevent a similar tragedy from happening again.

"The message needs to go out that this bullying has to stop," she said.

"Teachers just say let it go, well, you let it go and look what happens."

A memorial of the 13-year-old will be placed in Kimmel's bus as a constant reminder of the heartbreaking consequences of bullying.

"Whether kids feel it or not, they have to remember because maybe then it will help another child who is being bullied," she said.

My upcoming Surgery  

Well I finally have to talk about it. My hysterectomy. It's almost a month away and I am started to get anxious. I'm 32 years old and I'm losing my womanlyness...at least that is the way I feel. I have always had problems with that time of the month so they were waiting for me to finish having children. I am done now...believe me. No one tells me that parenting gets harder the older they get. Anyways, I have my two children, a boy and a girl...they told me I could have none.

I have been having such bad dreams about it though. I didn't have c-sections with my kids so I don't know what that pain is going to feel like. It probably hurts worse than a tattoo. I like getting tattoos! I just am scared that I will go to sleep and wake up and miss the experience. I am staying awake for the surgery. He's not sure how bad my other stuff is in there so he's waiting to open me up to find out. How reassuring is that?? So I'm staying awake.

Almost two summers ago I was really sick. Like almost died sick. I had a really bad allergic reaction in my lungs. Anyways, they had to stick a tube down my throat to see how bad the infection was. I remember looking up at the ceiling and then all of a sudden I was in the hallway waking up alone. I guess it really got to me because of the dreams I have been having.

Today's question is:

What scared you the most in your life?

Have a good day...Keep smiling!

Today ... Today ...  

Today I have been thinking of the power of smell. I used to have this memory when I used to use a certain shampoo. Like of how horrible my life was at the time. I was with my exhusband at the time. We got married when I was 20 (I was six months pregnant). I really loved this guy with all my heart. (I fell for him the first day I was in highschool.) But you know I think dreams are meant to be dreams. I went out with him and shortly after that pregnant and then married. Life with him was not fun at all. He mentally abused me really bad in the beginning. But I really loved him and always thought that was ok. So when I smell that shampoo I think of how horrible my life was.

I had always avoided that brand of shampoo forever. But the other day I bought it. I think for you to be able to move on from your fear you need to face it. I totally smelled it and let the memories flood back. This time the thoughts were different. I started thinking that, yeah life was bad back then, but that was then. I was so strong that I was able to move on from that. I am such a better person now. I am happy...I am living.

So today's question is:

What is your favorite/unfavorite smell and why?

Today's Thought  

Friday, May 18, 2007

So here it is for you today. So this is the beginning of the long weekend for us here in Canada. Victoria Day weekend it's called...Queen Victoria's birthday. (They don't even celebrate this in England so we are special!) But anyways I came across some cool urban legends and I thought I would share them with you. You can thank me later when you are sitting by the campfire or in your tent wondering what that scratching noise is...

A girl was babysitting two kids who wanted to watch TV in their parent's bedroom, but they were scared of a large clown statue in the corner. She called the parents to ask permission to cover the statue. The parents screamed, "Get the kids out of the house! We don't have a clown statue-it's a murderer!" The clown turned out to be a serial killer-and the babysitter and the children were never heard from again.

A girl got on a train and sat opposite a woman who was sitting between two men. She thought the women was staring at her, but the woman had a hood on so she wasn't sure. A man got on at the next stop and sat next to her. After a minute he whispered, "Get off at the next stop. You have to trust me." She got off at the next stop with the man. As the train sped by, he told her, "I'm a doctor, and that woman was dead. The men beside her were holding her up."

So today's question is:

What is the best urban legend you have heard of?


Have a good weekend...keep smiling.

Today's Thought  

Well today is a new day. I have feelings of doubt today. I just can't figure out how to get more traffic to this blog. I have tried everything. My other blog is a hit. But this one really isn't. I guess though they say that it takes months to build it up. I will just have to remember that.

Spring is in the air here in Alberta, Canada FINALLY. But I need to wait until the end of our long weekend until we can be sure there will be no more snow. Yes, it snows here at the end of May yet. Why not? If you don't like the weather here wait five minutes. Yes, they say that about Texas too...we are the Canadian version of Texas.

My question for the day is:

What is your favorite sign of spring?

Have a good y'all and be sure to come on back!

Being a Mom is overated?  



I saw this comic this morning in my mailbox. It sums up practically everything I feel about being a mother sometimes. We stay at home with our children every day. We don't get paid, we don't get promoted and we definately don't get the credit for what we do. But there are a lot of rewards that only we can have. I think being able to be with my children all day is an amazing thing. No one else cares for them but me. I get to have all the hugs and smiles I want for free. There is nothing like hearing your child say..."Mommy, I love you!" I think that the rewards outweigh the bad things. So today when you see your child smile...think I am the luckiest person alive. So today's question is:


What does your child do that makes you smile?


Have a good day and remember I am always here to talk to. Keep smiling!

People are Wacky  

Today I think I want to focus on how wacky people can be. Especially when you are out in public. I remember a while back...and the last time...we went out to eat at a restaurant. My son was just not into eating anything more. So he decided he was going to crawl around and act like a baby. It was getting so busy in there that he almost tripped people bringing food to the table. So I did what I had to do. I grabbed a hold of him and he started to scream. Nothing like having your shirt riding up your back and your underwear showing, having this screaming kid to contend with and the stares. I think there should have been a neon light above me saying, "LOOK AT THIS MOM!!!" What we ended up doing is finishing our supper and removed him from the premises. He screamed all the way and I ended up carrying him to the car. It's crazy that people can just aggravate you even more by staring. Like come on about 60% of those people have probably been in the same situation.

Today's question is:

What is the worst temper tantrum your child has had?


Have a good day and remember...Keep smiling!!

A Joke about little Boys  

Monday, May 14, 2007

I was surfing around and found this really cute about boys...if you have a son you need to read it. (Courtesy of http://dailyfunny.bob-space.com/index.html?utm_source=link2blogs&utm_medium=exchange)

Raising Boys

a)For those who have grown children - this is totally hysterical!
b) For those who have children past this age, this is hilarious.
c) For those who have children this age, this is not funny.
d) For those who have children nearing this age, this is a warning.
e) For those who have not yet had children, this is birth control.

The following came from an anonymous Mother in Austin, Texas: Things I've learned from my Boys (honest and not kidding):

1.) A king size waterbed holds enough water to fill a 2000 sq.ft. house 4 inches deep.

2.) If you spray hair spray on dust bunnies and run over themwith roller blades, they can ignite.

3) A 3-year old Boy's voice is louder than 200 adults in acrowded restaurant.

4.) If you hook a dog leash over a ceiling fan, the motor is notstrong enough to rotate a 42 pound Boy wearing Batman underwearand a Superman cape. It is strong enough, however, if tied to a paintcan, to spread paint on all four walls of a 20x20 ft. room.

5.) You should not throw baseballs up when the ceiling fan is on.When using a ceiling fan as a bat, you have to throw theball up a few times before you get a hit. A ceiling fan can hit a baseball along way.

6.) The glass in windows (even double-pane) doesn't stop abaseball hit by a ceiling fan.

7.) When you hear the toilet flush and the words "uh oh", it'salready too late.

8) Brake fluid mixed with Clorox makes smoke, and lots of it.

9.) A six-year old boy can start a fire with a flint rock eventhough a 36-year old man says they can only do it in themovies.

10.) Certain Lego's will pass through the digestive tract of a4-year old boy.

11.) Play dough and microwave should not be used in the samesentence.

12.) Super glue is forever.

13.) No matter how much Jell-O you put in a swimming pool youstill can't walk on water.

14.) Pool filters do not like Jell-O.

15.) VCR's do not eject "PB & J" sandwiches even though TVcommercials show they do.

16.) Garbage bags do not make good parachutes.

17.) Marbles in gas tanks make lots of noise when driving.

18.) You probably DO NOT want to know what that odor is.

19.) Always look in the oven before you turn it on; plastic toys do not like ovens.

20.) The fire department in Austin, TX has a 5-minute responsetime.

21.) The spin cycle on the washing machine does not make earthworms dizzy.

22.) It will, however, make cats dizzy.

23.) Cats throw up twice their body weight when dizzy.

24.) 80% of Women will pass this on to almost all of their friends, with or without kids.

25.) 80% of Men who read this will try mixing the Clorox and brake fluid.

Today  

Saturday, May 12, 2007


I have been thinking a lot about my blog and how I can make it different from the others. This is my first real home on here. Someplace that I can be who I want to be. I want to ask you a question every day and you can answer it for me in the comment section. I would love to get as many views as I can on each topic. They will be fun I promise.

Today's question:

What is the craziest thing that your child has said to you?

My son always comes up with the craziest things. But my daughter once was going through this workbook. She had a question that she read out loud to me and I think she had the funniest answer. The question was...Describe something in your library at school. She answered, "Books!" I thought it was cute because as an adult I thought of everything except the obvious.

I am a freelance writer looking for work. I have a couple of jobs but I hope to be able to fill my day with working at home and being with the kids.

One of my favorite websites is this one... check it out...it's a website about moms and has lots of articles on different things. You may even see my name on some of the articles.
