About my sorry-not-sorry comments lately

I’ve been saying that a lot lately, haven’t I. Like my earlier post from a few hours ago which was all ranty and full of expletives.

Sorry. (Not really.) 😐

Apologizing is a very Canadian 🇨🇦 activity so sorry for saying sorry when I’m not really sorry. 😄

More daily walk observations from Toronto

Disclaimer: swearing ahead. (#sorrynotsorry)

This is the continuation of my walk which I posted earlier.

I walked through the college campus which was deserted.

Embracing (figuratively and virtually)

Some people are dropping off the social internet.

I get it. We’re all fatigued by the constant bombardment of ever-changing news.

Although I believe in staying informed, I do sometimes scroll mindlessly, which, given we are starting day 8 of quarantine here (for my family specifically – many of our friends just returned from spring break and are at the beginning of the staying home movement) is hardly surprising. We’re still adapting to social distancing and its emotional and mental effects.

It hasn’t been easy but for me, an introverted homebody to begin with, not that hard either. Having the family around constantly has been a learning curve but again, we’re managing. Mostly.

Random thoughts to get past a moody mood

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. 🙄

Fear and insecurities: why we seek justification or validation

Once upon a time many moons ago I remember asking someone why they carry the dog poop all the way home when they could just throw it in the receptacle at the park.

“This way no one can accuse me of not picking up the dog poop,” was the answer.

Mood lift during the February blahs

During the first few months of the new year, the north-eastern part of North America are immersed in a cold, dark existence that sometimes seems hard to face each and every day.  A lot of things appear uninspiring and depressing. Fresh food is imported or greenhouse grown, a lot of people are sick with flu or strep, traffic is worse due to weather slowing us down…you know all that.

But instead of dwelling on the crappy-ness that is February up here in our time zone, let’s inspire each other with things that will help life our moods.

What inspires you during the dreary February months?

Let’s play!
