Even though this is a rainy day, it was still nice.  I got a little visit with my friend and made arrangements for Princess Snifflefritz' appointment.   Let's hope the weather cooperates this time.

It was great to see Notsosnowwhite today.  It has been forever since we were able to visit!

Today was one of those sucky days when I come to the stark realization that I have way more money going out than I actually have coming in.  It is so stressful.  And, it puts me in a gloomy mood.

But, I did make some changes that greatly improved Little Prince's days and put him in a MUCH better mood, so that is good.

Time and Patience

Little Prince was having a rough day today and I came up with a solution to help him.  It cut his stress down to once or twice a day instead of random times throughout the day.  So much better!  We are working with him to help him deal with those times, but all things with time and patience.

Not This Time

We didn't go to Princess Snifflefritz's appointment today.  We left to go, but it was raining so hard that there was water the size of lakes on the highway and the van kept trying to hydroplane.  It was pretty scary and after a few near misses, we turned around and called to reschedule. It was a big relief not to be struggling to keep the van on the road.  We will try again next time.

Tomorrow we drive about three hours and three hours back to take Princess Snifflefritz to the doctor.  I am a little nervous about driving so far in one day.  But, it will be fine.

I was really sick today.  My head hurt so bad that I couldn't open my eyes or hold my head up.

I am struggling to keep my spirits up with our budget being the way it is.  I wish we could get a cheaper place.

I mentioned to you this winter, that I had fallen down a couple of times. For some reason, I just seem more clumsy these days. I fall easier. So, this winter, I fell on three separate occasions. And, I haven't really gotten all the way better. My neck, my back, and especially my shoulder, cause me pain. I deal with it. But, once in a while, it is kind of a bummer.

I had a good day today.  Filled with sweet kid moments and funny kid adventures.  Little Prince decided to see how much soap he could fill the tub drain with, and Princess Snifflefritz sent me a sweet 'thank you, mom's video.  All in all, not a bad day.

I finally got my van in to get fixed. It cost more then I could afford really, and more than I expected. But, I will make it work. I always do. They did do their best to keep the cost low. That is really all I can ask.

Aug 18, 2020


I actually accomplished things today!  It wasn't much, but it means that I have cleaned out my kitchen cupboards and that feels good.  I am trying hard to make the best out of the situation that I am in.  Every little bit helps. 

Aug 17, 2020


Well, we got our announcement.  The kids are going back to school.  I don't really know all the changes, but busing may be affected, and they may have to wear masks sometimes.  So, I guess we will figure it all out.

Another change for our province is that masks will be mandatory in all public places.  I don't mind.  I get it, but it seems silly since we have only two cases of Covid-19 in our whole province.

This summer feels like a waste.  Due to budget and Covid-19 restrictions, I have done NOTHING.  And, I don't see that changing anytime soon.

Aug 15, 2020


Iam anxiously awaiting the back to school plan for Newfoundland.  It is hard to figure out how to prepare when we have no information.  I am a little nervous about how we can proceed with Little Prince, trying to make him understand changes.

I have been a little quiet lately.  I have been concentrating on getting this house under control.  I have to say, I am really pleased with the results.  At least this house is at livable until I get a more affordable place to live.

Aug 10, 2020


It was a lovely, sunny, extremely hot day.  I had a headache and didn't get a lot done, but my kids enjoyed the sun.

So Good

I had an amazingly constructive day.  My kitchen looks incredible.  My dining room is open and lovely.  I have a van filled with stuff for our  storage unit and more for donation.  I feel so good to be productive.

Even on a swelteringly hot day, I got things done!

Aug 8, 2020


I got more organizing and purging done today.  The kids even mentioned that it makes our place look bigger and brighter.  I am so pleased.  It is inspiring md to get more done.  If we are stuck here, we may as well make it a more comfortable place to enjoy my coffee.

Come on over, visit, see more on my stories and give me a follow at:

I had a good day.  I am tackling a few little tidying and organizing projects around the house.  It just feels good when things get clearer, organized, and spacious.  I have so many ideas on how to improve our life in this house.

Aug 6, 2020


Today I decided to get a drip coffee maker.  I have been drinking a LOT of coffee in the mornings lately and k-cups are not cheap.  So  I did the math and got a Hamilton Beach coffee maker and a giant container of coffee for less that 25 days of coffee.  I am going to track how long this container of coffee lasts as an experiment.  This is going to save me a fortune on coffee.

It was a good day.  The kids got outside to enjoy the sun and I got some things done. I cleaned the van out, which is always more of a job than I expect.  I got a start on the new laundry around the house.  And, I cooked good food.

Aug 4, 2020


Well, the place I was looking at all through. But, honestly, it was too rushed and making it happen would have been really, really hard.  Things will happen when they are supposed to.  I am feeling less stress than I have in weeks.

Getting through

I am having one of those days.  Anxiety is high, stressishigh, and I am treading water to just get through.

Little Prince

Little Prince is having a evening.  It is so exhausting when he gets like that.  I think he is overtired and just keeps getting frustrated and crying over everything.   I can not wait until he has a better day.  But, tonight, we are all tired.
