Music or kids – What’s worse on an airplane?

4 Feb

I feel like a first class gal riding in a coach world.

There is something about riding snug in coach seating during the holidays.

Or anytime.

Do kids need Uggs and Canada Goose Jackets?

1 Feb

Does anyone remember BiWay? It was kind of a very small precursor to walmart. Now the buildings that the stores were in house things like Dollarama and Giant Tiger.

I remember coming home from school one day when I was about 8 or 9 years old and laying on my bed was a brand new outfit that included a t-shirt, and an acid watch jean skirt with a matching acid wash jean jacket.

Depression isn’t pretty. It’s grey.

13 Jan

Lately when I look outside, all I see is grey. Occasionally, rarely really, do I see a tiny sliver of sun and before I can turn my head to it, it’s gone, as though it was almost imagined.

That’s how I feel right now. Inside. It’s as though I am looking at the world through a lens of grey where there is no colour to be found. And it sucks.

When I was a kid, I don’t remember saying “when I grow up, I hope I’m never happy”. Who does that? Anyone? I doubt it. I like to be happy, I’m just not. And it isn’t a specific thing, unless you count the chemical imbalance that is depression to be a “thing”.

Same thing, different day.

Should I even write about this?  Does anyone care?

Do I care?

The lazy person’s guide to Disney World and Universal – no planning involved!

4 Jan

We just got back from an eight day trip to Florida where we spent four days at Disney World and one day at Orlando Universal Studios – Islands of Adventures.

That’s right, folks, EIGHT days in Florida at the busiest time of year.

Prior to leaving, people kept asking me about our game plan. I did some online “research” in the form of a quick google check that only served to stress me out big time.

This is my oath to you

31 Dec

In keeping with my tradition of listening to the most poppy of all pop songs, I adore the song Oath by Cher Lloyd and Becky G.  Alex is a huge Becky G fan as evidenced by her new flat brimmed baseball hat, high tops and sweater with holes in it. :/

My week on is quickly coming to an end.

It’s funny, because when I first went off, someone said to me “oh, so you’re not like sick sick”. I know what people are saying, but I AM sick. Depression, Anxiety, and Panic Disorder are illnesses. Despite being off this week, I have had several panic attacks, including one in the middle of the night last night. Overall, I no longer feel as acute as I did, but I don’t feel “cured”.

Jenn’s week on – Part 7

Saturday November 24th, 2012

I can’t believe that my week on is almost over. It’s been a week of doctor’s appointment, massage, chiropractor, yoga, and cleaning. A week of a bit more sleep and more relaxation. A week that was supposed to be all about me, that turned into something much different.

TJ was home sick Tuesday to Thursday and this changed my week a great deal. Not for the better or for the worst, just changed. I am not sick with a cold but it’s not as bad as Mr. T’s was, poor little man.

I went to two yoga classes so far and have really loved them. I feel so stretched out, it’s crazy!

My house is organized for the most part – the basement is done, the kid’s rooms are done, the linen closet is done, my drawers and closet are done, all the bathrooms are done, and the kitchen is done.  I have donated TONS of things and it feels good to have done all of that.  Purging and organizing really is good for all involved.
