I spent most of the Christmas break not doing much of anything, knowing our activities schedule will double as of January. I wanted to rest and charge my batteries as much as possible.
This is what it’s like nowadays when a summer sport has an ‘off-season’. In our case it’s baseball. For both kids. The indoor training sessions begin now, and sometime in May (hopefully) the outdoor practices will begin at the local diamonds. (This is true for competitive sports, not recreational ones.)
And January inevitably arrived, so now we’re back to routine and school and twice as many activities and…
Dog walking is back!
I think there should be a new law:
Every time a school sends home a duplicate form they have to plant a new tree.
A rant is forming in my head but I’m not gonna give in to it. 😜 But if that law existed, we’d be living in a very dense forest by now.
The other day I went over to take Molly, the Schnoodle pup who just celebrated her 12th birthday, for a walk and then on to my house for a change of scenery.

Name me one kid who wants to go to school today.
No one answered. Ha. 🙄 Continue reading
My kid tricked me today. 🙄
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.
2019 is a New Year with no mistakes in it yet.
We’re in the midst of a lot of family time, right?
Everyone is home. Constantly.
And, this is the case for another week before school and work begins anew…
You know us bloggers are a special breed, right? Here we are, sharing our lives with each other, forming communities, liking and commenting on diverse topics and thereby broadening our perspectives regularly.
We are writers, all of us. But whether we admit it or not, we are also editors.
Well I’m digging out from under the Christmas debris, err, I mean Christmas gifts, and doing laundry.
Merry Christmas! Isn’t everyone doing chores today on Christmas Day? 🎄😉 Continue reading
We’re beyond believing here, in all sorts of ways, but I’ll tell you something about childhood magic that perseveres right up to the tween years:
Don’t ruin it.
Just let them be. There’s no harm in it. Especially at this time if year. Continue reading
