(side note: This didn’t publish on Sunday night as I had hoped. So you will be getting 2 days today!) So today was the day. We were heading to Seaside, Oregon for our week long vacation. I was super excited. There is so many things I want to do: stop in Astoria, see the…… Continue reading Our Oregon Coast Adventure : Day 1
I feel like I want my blog to be this happy-go-lucky fun site with all the quirks of parenting and adulting and everything that goes with it. But that isn’t really how life is, is it? Life is a delicate balance between the good and the bad. It seems to know just where the boundary…… Continue reading Seriously, F&#k cancer
So for those of us that live in beautiful British Columbia, it was a long weekend for us. Monday was family day. Now, I don’t know about you, but we spend a lot of time together as a family. But it is always nice to be able to have a long weekend to get out…… Continue reading Family Day
Hi again, My week just keeps getting better. I know that I told you all about the week from H-E-L-L (O – operator, connect me number 9. Anyone remember this?) but the week doesn’t end there. Oh no, that would make life easy. And life isn’t fair. Isn’t that what we are always telling the…… Continue reading Rough days lead to rough weeks….
**Update: I wrote this about 2 weeks ago. I couldn’t figure out if I should post it or not, but then I decided that I would. It is hard to see my oldest have rough days, even rough weeks. It’s awful to have him labelled as an explosive child or to have a safety plan…… Continue reading Rough Days….

He has had 10 surgeries since he was born (all day surgeries, and most involving hernias) and 2 hospital…… Continue reading An introduction to Peanut
This will be a harder post to write. And there may be language that is offensive to some. My aunt was recently diagnosed with lung cancer. Oh, and not just one lung cancer, TWO. Seriously? Who gets 2 different types of lung cancer. Oh, right. MY family. MY family doesn’t know how to do things…… Continue reading So…ODD DUCK Syndrome
Me again. Do you make new year’s resolutions? I know I used to, but I can’t remember a single time that I actually stuck to the ‘plan’. A friend of mine showed me this quote on New Year’s eve and it resonated with me. I looked up the name associated with this quote, Danielle Doby. I…… Continue reading Resolutions
Here is our chicken a la king recipe. My mom gave it to me and I have no idea where she got it from. From now on, I’ll try to take a photo to post with the recipes. Chicken a la King 2 cups milk 1 cup water 6 tbsp butter ½ cup flour 1…… Continue reading Chicken a la King – a la my family
Anyone else have issues planning dinner? Or any meal in general? Every week, I think let’s create a menu for the week! This always seems like such a great idea when I hear our friends doing this. But seriously? How do you know that you are going to feel like eating tacos on Tuesday or…… Continue reading Dinner? Such a difficult decision….
