Think I'm Getting the Hang of Things
Monday, June 11, 2012      6 comments

After a month of being a full-time student I think I may have finally found my balance. This weekend was great. With the exception of a few arguments over chores that needed doing we had a wonderful weekend. Yesterday we went grocery shop... Read more
Feeling Out of Touch
Friday, June 01, 2012      6 comments

Wow, I've only been a student for 2 weeks (as of tomorrow) and I am already feeling out of place. I have only had 1 graded assignment so far and I got through that one with a 93%. I just "handed" in 2 more tonight and will have to wait until mo... Read more
Slightly Frustrated Right Now
Friday, May 25, 2012      4 comments

I realized the other day that sitting at my current desk to try and type for long periods of time is not going to work. I will have to swap my big old Army surplus desk for the one the kids use because it has a keyboard tray, mine is from the e... Read more

I am not sure how I will handle school and work on a full time basis but hopefully it won't be too bad. So far with school I am slightly ahead of the outline (mostly because I've covered a lot of the intro stuff before in high school), this sho... Read more

Official 10K Results
Monday, April 16, 2012      3 comments

My youngest daughter and I ran a 10K yesterday and did pretty well for our first organized run. I slowed down to keep her with me as it was a BIG place to cover at the end (I still misplaced her...LOL). I finished in 1:18:21.2 placing 1080... Read more
Tough Night Again for My Oldest
Monday, April 09, 2012      6 comments

Last night she came across a scarf she's been working on for nearly 2 years that was supposed to be for the friend who died. So many tears were shed again but she wants to give the scarf to her friend's sister. She just has to run some loose e... Read more

My daughters now have closer on the death of a friend. We attended the funeral today and all things considered it went well. This was my oldest daughter's best friend since grade 1. The family asked her to be one of the pall bearers and she h... Read more
Waiting for the Week to END
Wednesday, March 28, 2012      3 comments

This has been such a crappy week I just want it to end and go and hide under a rock for a while. We found out that my daughter's friend did commit suicide on Sunday night/Monday morning. She is understandably angry at the friend and the si... Read more

Tonight I have a lot going through my mind. The most pressing is helping my oldest daughter deal with the death of one of her best friends. They have known each other since grade 1. We don't have any details on her passing but a lot of rumour... Read more
The Week In Review ~ March 18-24

The week started off a bit rough. On Monday I got no break at work so that was a long day. On Tuesday I took my oldest one in to re-write her learner's permit test for driving and she failed it again. Maybe third time will be the charm for he... Read more
How Do I Inspire Instead of Nag?
Sunday, March 11, 2012      6 comments

So as I've mentioned in earlier blogs my 13 year old daughter signed up for a 10K race in April. I decided that it would be "fun" if we did it together. This is where the problem comes in, I feel more like a drill Sargent than a cheer leader. ... Read more
Feeling Blessed and Stressed
Friday, March 09, 2012      4 comments

Wow what a week. My manager was sick at the beginning of the week so that didn't help any. I tried to help keep things together but it didn't work so well. It just seems that everything I did went sideways this week. Hence the stressed part.... Read more

I have officially finished Week 2 of the 100 Push-ups Challenge. I have realized that my chest and back were pretty weak. Man are my muscles letting me know they exist. I miss my oldest child unit. She is on a band trip and won't be hom... Read more
