Where would it be?

Rarely have I been so glad to see a Friday arrive, with a fairly quiet weekend ahead. It's been a week of sadness and stress in our little household, so I'm really hoping the next few days will be a low-key time for relaxing and regrouping.

How Many Times Do You Kiss A Day?

When I'm with the grand babies, I bet I kiss a thousand times, each one on their precious sweet smelling heads. And some times, I get the "mmmmm smooch" from both boys and that just makes me melt. Some how, both the boys are cuddle-bums. I guess it is because Nik and I never put them down when they were infants. Whatever, we did it right because they both love to snuggle. So with kids, especially grandkids, it's hard to make a kiss count accurately. I'll try next time I'm holding one of them!...more

NaBloPoMo, simple as that

 Last year I committed to posting a blog every day in the month of November on the Blog Her Publishing Network.   I´m not sure why I decided to attempt this during that particular time in my life, with our family  in the midst of a crisis, but I´m glad I did it, because now I have a better record of those eventful days.I just reread my very first NaBloPoMo post a few minutes ago, where I wrote about how simple lives can get complicated in a hurry. ...more

Afraid to Voice Your Political Opinion?

I am. I'm getting more vocal, but I've kept quiet pretty much to hubby the entire election season but I can no longer do so. I listen to his attempts to justify why I should vote for Mitt Romney. His main reason all along is that he worked his way out of the ghetto to grow a business that will be penalized if Obama is elected by hitting us harder with taxes. That's a pretty valid reason, but not enough. I'm considering the future of the entire country, not just us, in deciding who to vote for. ...more
@OldeSquid I agree with everything above except for the part that you didn't vote.more

November plans

I find it hard to believe that it's November already, and that we've been in our new home for a whole year now. Since we moved to Windsor last November it's been a time of mostly good, some fantastic, some challenging, and most recently heartbreak as we said goodbye to our beautiful and much-beloved 20-year-old cat Spider. Lots on which to reflect. Now, with a new month stretching ahead, my thoughts turn to blogging goals and plans. ...more
