La la la la Life goes on....

Can't believe it has been another 3-4 months since my last post. I suppose it is a testament to all that has been going on in my life this year. It was a totally wild ride and I learned alot. But here I am on my couch with nothing to do for a few days but sit and wait and see what life has in store for me. My dream job, turned out not to be such a dream for me. It was a fantastic learning experience, I will give it that. But it cost me alot as well. With that said. I am looking forward to a few days of rest and getting my house back in order and then who knows. I'm hoping that the bog will once again be that place where I can get all the thoughts out and sort through them and keep what's important and let go of what is not important. My and the hubby are doing well, he is happy to have his wife back after a year of being consumed with details for work. We had a great time camping with the kids a few weeks ago and look forward to many more adventures. My oldest is doing well, we are pursuing some more testing for him to see what can be done to help him with his school work. My girl is fabulous, she is cute and sweet and loves everything life has to throw at her. My baby is not a baby anymore, he is now 2 and just full of wonder, curiosity and resistance and defiance. I won't lie, he is a handful. Our life has been crazy and stressful so I am looking forward to getting a handle on things and moving through our days with a little less stress. Cheers to those of you still interested. See you tomorrow.

Dear Loyal Followers,

I have now realized that everyday someone checks my blog, either a new person who found my blog through a search or key word or many of you who were regular followers who are just curious as to what that heck is going on around here?

So this update is for you.

Yes I am knee deep in figuring out this working mom of 3 thing, while trying to do well at being a mother, a wife, a sister, a friend, and a good employee because contrary to my behaviour and my dishevelled appearence some days. I still want to be a good if not a spectacularily great employee.

For home I am knee deep in mothering an 8yr old child with a physical disability, who is starting to get real frustrated with it. on top of the fact that recent testing has revealed an additional vision problem that has likely been the root cause of his falling behind in his reading.

A sweet 5.5 year old girl who loves dressing in "fashion" and wants me to curl her poker straight hair everyday for school (not enough time in the whole for that one baby)

A gorgeous 21 month old tasmanian devil of a boy who loves to pull every.single. pot or pan or baking dish or tupperware container out of the cupboards EVERY. SINGLE. DAY! oh yeah did I mention before 6AM...yes that's correct 6AM! OY

A darling husband who continues to ask me if I'm sure we can't swing HOMESCHOOLING our kids cause he thinks that would be what is best for them. huh?? I can tell you right now me being home with all me kids every. single. day! Will not be good for ANYONE!

My work is crazy busy as we are ticking down to some SIGNIFICANT deadlines, nothing like a little pressure to get the creative juices flowing. Add that to the pressures of conflicting priorities and volia, not enough coffee in the world right now!

So instead I came here to procrasinate a little more and give y'all a little update.

I'm sure I will be back more often as I really feel the need to get things out of my head right now to clear the space for what I really need to get done.

Is it possible???

Could it really be 5 months since I last posted to my blog?? Unbelieveable. When I last posted I had just successfully negotiated a new position with an organization I am very passionate about.

I am now working with a Family Network organization that supports families of children with Special needs.

We offer a Parent Mentoring program where we match families with similar situations, who share their knowledge and experience and support each other through these experiences. We also coordinate several seminars and workshops based on topics requested by parent.

it is a very exciting time and I am so happy to be a part of it.

I will try to update more often.

since all this change, I am having a hard time taking of the baby weight from last I think that will be part of my focus for the next little while is getting my health under control.

Hope you are all doing well!

Sometimes you have to be greatful

Sometimes all the points of your life intersect and you realize everything in your life up to now has given you the skills, experience and attitude for something great to happen.

Yeah me. I am so greatful for all my past experiences!

On the path to Fit

As you know we had the FLU. I know... it's all i have been talking about. It was cruel, it was awful.

Silver lining...I lost 7 lbs. I'm sure some of it was muscle mass, but the jeans were looser people.

This was a nice surprise. although I should not have been surprised, since I was eating nothing but soup for 10 days and drinking tonnes of water and taking vitamins....hey wait aminute this is starting to sound like eating healthy.

So I said to myself...SELF...just keep going. So I did. I haven't lost any more weight in the past 2 weeks but I haven't gained any either, which is great since i was re-introducing FOOD for God's Sake. Carbs, Also, I had a weak moment around March 1st our RRSP deadline here in Cananda and my busiest time of year...and i happened to bump into a box of three Cadbury Easter Cream Eggs. BLAM, GONE...IN MY BELLY! oops.

But I am starting with breakfast and tried to have a great breakfast everyday this week and did pretty good except for Wednesday when I swear the children were plotting against me.

Some Oatmeal, and a protein smoothie with bananas and blueberries, YUM.

next week I will try for breakfast and a healthy balanced, "clean" snack.

I got this shit!

Holy cow!
5 sick people equals not a very good 10 days in our household.

Fevers, chills, sore throats, aches and pains.

It has not been much fun.

We are on the mend and using this Family Day weekend to rest, recovery and take it easy. Catch up on all the laundry and cleaning to get this sickness the hell out of my house!

It was a tough 10 days of juggling work, child care, sick kids, homework and food.

If I never eat soup again it won't hurt my feelings. That's all anyone wanted and we went through all the soup in the cupboard and all the soup broth and noodles I keep in the pantry to make homemade soup.

One Bonus: a jump start to weight loss, I think I lost about 7 lbs from my soup eating.

Of course the poor baby got it last and he is still not very happy. Which means I must end this blog post to go comfort him.

Poor guy!

Hope everyone else is well and enjoying their family day weekend.
