Hello Everyone Yesterday morning was more chaotic than usual but we made it through. The surprise of the day happened when I was at the bus stop waiting for my oldest kid (Kids go to different schools so I drive). The bus wasn’t showing up.. it was about 10 minutes late. I see a parent whose kid is on the […]
Hello The last day of the winter holidays is almost over. In a few hours I’ll be waking up before 6:00 a.m. to start my day. I’m glad the kids and I are going back to school but waking up before the sun comes up is going to be a challenge for the next five days. I’m going to miss […]
Hello Everyone! I hope you’re all doing great. I’ve been crying a bit … I miss my mom a lot. As we know, life continues after someone passes away. This Christmas season is tough but my boys are really excited to celebrate the Jolly Season. I’ve decided to scale back this years Christmas decorations and celebration. I usually go all […]
For the past 15 years the term “Global Warming” or “Climate Change” has been used a lot. Some people say is happening, others say is fear mongering. I’m not here to debate whether is real or not. What I want to do is to be more conscious about my daily choices and how they affect other beings. Growing up, I was introduced to the importance of preserving the ecosystem and learned some things that I could do to help the environment as well as people. Even after that, it wasn’t until the year 2011 when I started to recycle, throw food scraps in the waste and garbage in the garbage bin. I still don’t do enough, but I have pick up some habits to reduce the amount of garbage we produce. I love to use straws, so what I do is reuse straws. I wash them with soap and water, air dry it and put them in a container so they don’t get damaged. Yes, In Ontario, Canada we use bagged milk, the amount of single use plastic in the package is embarrassing. As a family we have cut back on the consumption of cow milk. At the grocery store we found bottled organic milk. The milk is expensive, for 1 litre we pay $6.00 CAD plus tax. There are 7 of us, that means we would need 2 bottles a day of milk. We like to bake a lot […]
Waking up before sun rise… I wonder how many people can actually do it on a daily basis? I can’t, my best sleep is some time between 10 p.m. and 9 a.m. for at least 8 hours…. but I’m a mom of 5 kids under 8 so yeah that’s not happening any time soon. I would like to wake up […]
Before you start reading I want to clarify that I do not judge people on their physical appearance. If you are happy with the way you look then that’s all that matters. My number is 186.8… I never thought I would share my weight with the world but yeah I currently weight 186.8 lb. For some reason, since I became […]
The countdown has begun, in 30 days I will be 30 years old. My 20’s were all about becoming a mother and a wife. This means that in the last decade I have not invested in my self as much. So my 30’s are going to be about growth and change while continuing my journey as a mother and a wife. I came up with many ideas, I chose 30 things that I would like to either accomplish, re-introduce and try in my life. I won’t call it a bucket list because my bucket list is mostly travelling around the world. This is my 30 before 30 list. Start a Blog Get those tattoos I’ve put off for years No Social Media for a day (Hubby will be posting on that day) Go Vegan for a day Loose 8 lb Water fast for a day Introduce a 15 min HIIT work out twice a week Review a product/products Read the Psalm book Reorganize my (our) closet No Netflix for a day ( I watch an episode of The Office a day) Spa Day Get in the habit of waking up at 6:00 a.m. Monday to Friday Try some Korean BBQ (I’ve been wanting to try it for the last 15 years! Get a painting from a local artist for the leaving room Decorate the dinning room (there is nothing on the walls of our main floor) Recycle all the cans […]
It has been 2 years since my last post. What have I been doing for the last two years? Hubby and I planned for a third child. We got triplets. So next time you are anxious and stressed about something.. remember you can plan all you want but at the end there isn’t much you can control!
