my life is a seinfeld episode.


recently we've acquired a beta fish..puddy is his name. he's 
a good little fish. we got him on a whim. our neighbours have a gajillion fish in a huge tank in their bonus room (a temporary home until we emerge from the great polar ice cap we become from november to may then these fishies make their way back outside to the pond) . but i think sub consciously we were feeling a bit jealous that they have super cool fish to look at everyday so

isn't that just great.

a boy and his great great baba.

this is what i want my life to be about. capturing the moments
that could be missed by those who are too occupied to see them. 
how many people get to see their son share a loving moment with 
their great great baba. 90 years difference and they can still have something in common.
all the love in the world to give.

Making Decisions

Decision making . Oh how I loathe thee. Deciding on what this blog should be about is too difficult to pin down. I'm creating this blog out of a search to find something that brings me a sense of completion and an opportunity to grow as a person. I'm not going to say this is a crafting blog, though I will post crafts. I'm not going to decide that this should be a blog where I talk about one specific area of my life, god knows my life is full of facets. I'm not going to post about how great my child and husband are, at least not all the time  but let it be known from the beginning, they are pretty fantastic.

I do believe that this blog will be about family outings,camping (yes, definabley camping), activities, our ongoing home renovation,the puppy we're getting after xmas, anecdotes to my life and things that bring me joy and things that put sparkle in our lives.

I am a stay at home Mom. I don't have a degree in anything, I was a career waitress that found herself working in a ridiculous alternative health clinic, then an insurance company (a job i secretly enjoyed but managed to be tardy everyday { not intentionally at all - a certain health disorder called OCD prevented me from leaving my house comfortably} ). Then I got pregnant and managed to birth the wildest boy on earth who only weighed a mere 3lbs 7oz. I've started projects and not finished them, I read self help books and I don't know how to parallel park. BUT My life is covered in awesomesauce. I have some serious ups and some gnarly downs.. I'm not ashamed of who I am and the life my husband and I lead. I'm on this earth to share my shit and maybe you'll read about it. Yes, you will read about it.. (*Practicing my positive thinking)
