Those Who Matter Won’t Mind…

Those Who Matter Won’t Mind…

“Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.” – Theodore Seuss Giesel  I have been thinking about authenticity so much lately.  Having been a “people pleaser” for most of my life I have been enjoying the liberation that comes with gaining the … Continue reading

Karma Vs. Genetics

Karma Vs. Genetics

Worst. CF Clinic. Ever.  Yesterday was a really, really tough day for me.  Rowan had clinic at the Alberta Childrens’ Hospital and for the very first time it was not a positive, uplifting experience.  Her liver enzymes were high in her blood work and now she is on a very aggressive course of anti-biotics and … Continue reading

Gut Check!

Gut Check!

“Action is the antidote to despair.” – Joan Baez Am I feeling desperate? Well, it’s maybe not quite that bad – but it is gut check time.  It’s time to realize that I have set things in motion and even if I wanted to I couldn’t turn back.  Even though this Princess Ball is rolling pretty … Continue reading

Tell That Worry to Eff Off!

Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, but only saps today of its strength.” – A. J. Cronin I tell ya’ if I had a dollar for everytime my “Quote Of The Day” e-mail was so on-point… well I wouldn’t be suffering in these sub-arctic Canadian temperatures – I would at least have enough money for … Continue reading

Oh For Five Cents!

Less than stellar moment…today I lost my shit over some raspberries, yep, you heard me right raspberries…You see, as a work-from-home mortgage broker I sometimes need to make very important phone calls and sometimes it is imperative that I not have any interruptions so I try my best to set the girls up so that … Continue reading

Just The Facts Ma’am

The shitty thing about fundraising is that I have to talk about Cystic Fibrosis a lot and as a result it does not allow me to live in this little fairytale land where Rowan just takes meds and accepts chocolate for the courtesy of letting me give her chest physiotherapy… that wouldn’t be too bad.  … Continue reading

5 Year Old

My oldest is about to turn 5 and I just love, love, love this time in her life! She is slowly starting to realize that the world isn’t totally about her (I mean she still thinks it’s mostly about her but that might be genetic… she is my child after all, lol) and becoming this … Continue reading

Back to Reality

Well hubby goes back to work this morning… mixed emotions, as always…. in the winter time, regardless of how long he is home we never get into a rhythm or a routine – there’s no point.  When you have two little kids and work from home… you need a rhythm and a routine – so … Continue reading

Mad At Myself

So, hubby goes back to work in 2 more sleeps.  He has been home for 3 weeks and it has been as awesome as I let it be… right now I am so disappointed in myself and how I sabotage really amazing things in my life.  I get even more frustrated that I can’t see … Continue reading


One of those nights.  Rowan started another round of anti-biotics and she always sleeps poorly on the first night.. woke me up with a start at 2:30 and now an hour later I am still wide awake!  Leaves me already reflecting on The Resolution List and I feel REALLY good about it (I have put … Continue reading
