I'm sure we will read thousands of posts like this today, but on September 11th, I can't really think of anything else. So here is what I was doing on September, 11, 2001. Please take a moment to comment and tell me what you were doing.I ran an agency that provided services to help seniors remain independent in their homes, and my office was located within a senior's recreation centre. I started work at 9am and had been there a short time when one of our volunteers came in and said two planes … [Read more...] about What were you doing?
I heard on the radio this morning that a new study has found facebook has a higher than average number of narcissistic people, and people with low self esteem. They went on to say that many of these people are using facebook for self promotion...no kidding?! I was curious about this study, so I did a search and found this article. In this article, I found the flaw in their study...The research studied the online habits and personalities of 100 Facebook users between the ages of 18 and … [Read more...] about Narcissistic?
Griffin Starting Daycare My little Grumps starts daycare tomorrow. He will go two days a week, and Kel and Ave go to grades 2 and 1 respectively starting next Tuesday.

Mike and I took off for some kid free time this afternoon. I got to pick the movie, so I chose one I have been wanting to see..."Eat, Pray, Love". So...off we went to the city. First, we stopped at Home Depot in search of a large grommet punch...no luck...then on to the movie theatre. Today's movies were free, thanks to our Scene points, so we got our free tickets and headed off to the concession stands. While standing in line, I watched a Grandmother (I'm guessing here) help her 5ish grandson … [Read more...] about Eat, Pray, Love
They are mine! With school just a few days away, we decided it was time to make these scruffy kids look a little more presentable.First, we did the mandatory "Before" pictures.If you are wondering why I would take the pictures in front of a marked up, coloured on wall, it's because most of my walls are marked up and coloured on. Crappy builder's paint and toddlers don't mix. My dear Kool did most of the wall art in the house (not recently) and my little Grumps has recently decided to … [Read more...] about Who are those clean cut kids?
