A sea of doggie…

On this beautiful Sunday morning, I am ready to wring one of the dogs necks.... I get up, get dressed, and go to take the boys outside for their morning pee. I get to the landing and see some dog poop on the floor in the basement. So, I go down stairs to clean it … Continue reading A sea of doggie…

Admission update: Growth while going back to basics…

My appointment with the doctor yesterday was good, if not a bit strained. He told me some things I already know, such as I need to change the channel in my mind from dying to living when I get overly stressed. His recommendation for me is Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. The problem is where to find … Continue reading Admission update: Growth while going back to basics…


After a busy evening last night, today is shaping up to be much more low key. Last night I ended up taking photos of a local service group making donations to several local charities and non-profits, then followed up by taking photos over at the towns curling rink of a bonspiel that is going on … Continue reading Rebound

Sometimes stopping isn’t the answer…

Little Theatre is done for the year, and I am grateful to have again taken part.

A year ago, the last … Continue reading Growth in the last year.


Slowly, things are getting back into a groove. I've worked in the store a couple days this week and I've gone back to work chasing stories. Unfortunately with the time I had away, as much as I tried to stay on top of things, I am playing catch up. The last few days have been … Continue reading Overloaded

Sometimes doing nothing is doing something important.

Well, I didn't get as much done today as I planned, but that's okay. After the events of the last couple of weeks, I definitely needed the down-time, because even my weekend off ended up being busy. After traveling home Friday, I ended up on the go for most of Saturday and Sunday, between theatre … Continue reading Sometimes doing nothing is doing something important.


Today is my fortieth birthday, and I'm home after a few days in Saskatchewan helping Lynn and the family say goodbye to Brenda after her sudden passing.

Why do we have to say goodbye?

Brenda's dogs, Taffy, Skor, and Rolo. Taffy and Rolo are coming home to join our furry family, and Skor has found a home as well. Yesterday was as upbeat a day as one can have while attending a funeral service. The funeral service was very beautifully done, and the message of the priest was very … Continue reading Why do we have to say goodbye?
