This post will be part of a series.
I stumbled on a new blog via Rachel (who is amazing and does surveys of older people blogging, click here to see some of her analysis). Rachel mentioned a blogger who wrote his 1000th post about what he learned while blogging himself.
I actually read all 77 items he listed if you can believe it. Not all in one sitting…I had coffee to make, and water to drink, and breakfast to pop into the microwave, and lunches to pack, and kids to get out of the house and and and…
But I did read them. I have things to say about quite a few of the points, yet don’t want to make this a rambling, long post, so I will comment on just a few of his remarks, and come back next week with another set.
Here’s what sticks out to me: Continue reading
I used to write a lot of letters. Partly this was to stay in touch with my family in Europe after we left to move to Canada when I was 11. My grandmother in particular enjoyed the letters and always responded.
I looked forward to her mail. ❤
Tomorrow is a new day with no mistakes in it…yet.
L.M. Montgomery, author of Anne of Green Gables, wrote this quote and you know what? We should apply it to this New Year.

Merry Christmas! Isn’t everyone doing chores today on Christmas Day? 🎄😉 Continue reading
My hair is ridiculous today. Continue reading
About a year and a half ago I started writing a memoir. I wrote it like I was possessed, the words flowing out of my head and onto my screen without too much trouble.
I didn’t edit. I didn’t re-read. I just wrote it out.

Wanna know what I’m doing right now?
Sitting on the couch with a hot tea and some cookies.
The other day in the car we were listening to a soft rock station and this song Bed of Roses by Bon Jovi came on. I’m not really a fan of this song (but I do like some of Bon Jovi’s stuff) but this stupid song has been in my head for three days. Help me! 😮
I want to go see the movie Bohemian Rhapsody with the kids but the kids are too young. Will wait for it to come out on Netflix.
I was on strike for a day and a half. When the shit hit the fan and everything fell apart on Monday afternoon I canceled practice to ‘help‘ a kid with math.
I can’t remember grade 6 math. 🙄 Continue reading
