September 11, 2014

Not bad, one blog a year. :)

I wish people would think about what they write before posting on Facebook. It's tough ready negative statuses. Is it really worth bad mouthing something without the whole story from the other party and assume your 5 year old is telling the story correctly... I don't see there being a huge problem if teachers don't wish to have certain unhealthy foods in their classroom as long as they send home a note to the parents. Any help with feeding my kids healthy unprocessed food, I would be happy to take. I have a few friends that have this practice in their classrooms and it teaches kids to read labels, cuts down on the sugar. 

Anyways, now for happy news!

Ruth will be a year in a couple of weeks. It's been going by so fast. She's growing like weed, crawling and climbing on everything. She is such a happy little girl. 

Maria is growing up fast too. She started music lessons last week and registered for gymnastics. 

Darren and I went to Hamilton/Toronto last weekend. We had a fantastic time seeing old friends, celebrating a marriage, sight seeing at Niagara Falls, enjoying a Toronto Blue Jays game(with awesome seats), hockey hall of fame, going to CBC ( which I got to see and touch mr. Dress ups treehouse!) and last but not least some really good food!

It was nice to have time to reconnect with my husband without having the girls around. I have been a bit stressed and depressed this summer, I'm feeling more recharged. 

Until next time :)

Changes November 19, 2013

So we have our newest member of the family arrive on September 27, another little girl. Ruth is a pretty content baby, but does like to spit up. 
This is Ruth less than a week old. 

It's been challenging to be at home with a newborn and a 3 year old. Maria in gerneral is a big help but has her share of attitude moments. Trying to tame those and stay patient has been hard. 

I feel like I can't catch up on sleep. The only time I can have a nap during the day us when Darren is home. He's been working long hours and when does come home he usually has more paperwork to do. I keep repeating the overtime wage is worth it. But I sure miss him. It'll be nice when we can spend some time together alone. Some day.....

We are thinking of going to Vegas next summer/early fall. To go out of the country is going to be exciting! 

I've started cleaning up the basement. We now have a small living area down there for the kids to play. I need to pick up some sort of toy bin then we can put more toys down there. I put a foam puzzles mat on the floor to add a little cushion and so the girls won't have to touch that rug. ( it's been shampood and vacuumed but still is gross) 

Darren is going to lay a floating sub floor in the spare room so we have a place for someone to sleep if we have overnight guests. I'll paint the walls after I figure out what to paint the living/dining room. (Ill use up the extra paint downstairs)

In the last couple of weeks we had a leak in our water pipe outside by the valve. The city came and looked but said its on our side of the valve so it's our problem to get it fixed. I finally was able to find someone that could come and fix it. Which will be Thursday, it will be nice to have full water pressure again, especially in the shower. 

I hope we don't have any more big expenses come up with the house..... Knocking on wood. 

A vent for today, it's frustrating to wait for D to fix, clean etc. he needs to be in the "right" frame of mind before he gets anything dine. I feel he wastes his days off, watching tv, playing on the phone or moping around. I would do some of things he is suppose to do but I just don't have the time or physical strength...bonus after months he finally replaced the outside light bulb, so we can see the door at night. I don't know how to push him without sounding like I'm nagging. 

I feel like I'm picking up after 3 kids constantly. Maid mommy.  Darren wonders why I'm tired and don't usually feel like fooling around. 

On a happy note here are some pics:

Aug 31, 2013

It's been 5 years since I married a spectacular man. Sure we have our ups and downs, very one does. I just feel blessed to find someone that understands, compliments and loves me. We never made plans for today. It's Darren's weekend to work. Maybe we will do something to celebrate another time.  We are thinking of going to the Hat and going for dinner and a movie tonight. 

My mood swings are getting out of control a home. I'm awfully sensitive over little things. Poor Darren, he tries to be patient but its starting to get to him too. It's like my think before you speak is broken. It will be better soon. A month at the most. ;)
