Ru ~ dig deeperThis monkey’s gone to heaven

Purging stuff left right and center, but there isn’t time to sort it all – frustrating to move boxes that will have to be decluttered later, but we have to pick our battles. Had to cancel a friend’s helpful visit due to having babysitting hours extended at the last minute, but we’re rescheduling for the weekend which might be better.

Isak had a major melt-down yesterday and lost his screentime today which is punishment for everyone. He’s having a hard time with the move too, probably more so than us, but he’ll bounce back a lot quicker. It’s hard to balance understanding the legitimate reasons behind crummy behavior and doling out required discipline. Sigh.

Mom’s surgery went well yesterday, she’s back in today to tweak things. M has already taken another load to the new place and is spending another marathon day prepping walls and ceilings. He’s is hoping to start painting the bedrooms tomorrow. We need more time! Ahhhhhhhhh! The flying monkeys are on their way – time to duck and cover.

Super duper up side? I slept really, really well last night. Shocker. 10 days to go.

Ru ~ dig deeperTwo headed beast (Tuesday – Wednesday)

We were away for most of yesterday, first registering with the new school and then going out of town for a family gathering (which was fantastic and something we all needed, even if it puts us another day back). Insomnia and anxiety has ruled the smallest hours the last fistful of nights – I need to get the insomnia and stress under control. At least I’m working on it consciously now.

Today has been a very long day with some difficult behavior to contend with. Moving forward and taking self imposed breaks. Accepting help from thoughtful friends and hugs from equally addled loved ones…

It was really great to stop and enjoy family and sunshine yesterday. I look forward to more of that in the future. M. has returned from 12 hours slaving at the new place, I’m off to join him for some Indian leftovers and couch collapse therapy.

Retroactive happiness…

January 15, 2013

  • Braving the cold and enjoying the playground. Another little girl gave Iris a 3D princess sticker, which she was thoroughly taken with (though not as much as all the tiny pebbles).
  • Potentially great tax related changes.
  • Quiet, sing-song baby talk.
  • Quick and painless flu shots (Iris got to have the mist). Done!
  • Losing time in a great chess game.
  • Another tooth out! The tooth fairy has been busy lately.



Retroactive happiness…

January 16, 2013

  • Up early (amidst great tooth fairy excitement) but had a leisurely morning. Amused by the silly Google zamboni game.
  • Visiting the neighbour for treats and coffee, talking and onesie drop-offs.
  • Apparently if your arm hurts more after a flu shot you’re building better antibodies. Oh yay… a silver lining.
  • More cold playground fun. We found mysterious ice, stayed until our fingers were thoroughly chilled, and then warmed up at home with peppermint tea.
  • Isak earned his first special badges at his martial arts class. He’s so proud. 10 months ago

Ru ~ dig deeperHarnessing Monday

We’re down to the last two weeks before we’re totally out of the old place and into the new. We’re quite behind where we’d intended to be in some areas and ahead in others. Because of when the van loan worked out, we’ve had to move half of our stuff to the new place (much of it unsorted) prior to finishing the first run of renos and painting, which has made for a hot pile of chaos, but it’ll save last minute moving time.

We’ve had numerous setbacks with health and car problems, unavoidable obligations, and visits from much missed friends and family we rarely see so wanted to make time for. My mom is going in for surgery this week and my brother and sil are recovering from a car accident, time is shrinking and lists keep getting longer. Stress is high and contagious, so the kids are more prone to melt-downs, and sleep is scarce. At least we’re maintaining our senses of humor.

Riding hard today. There’s light at the end of the tunnel, we’re just deep inside it, so it’s still on the dim side, but we know it’s there – that’s the most important thing.

Ru ~ dig deeperFlaky goodness

Retroactive happiness…

January 14, 2013

  • Snow!
  • I lugged the big toboggan all the way to the playground. There wasn’t a lot of snow, but Isak and his friends had a fantastic time in what there was. It paid off a hundredfold in happy shrieks and pink noses. Iris had fun too; she was fascinated by melting snowflakes with her breath.
  • Extra nice compliments from strangers.
  • Coming home for 3 cheese macaroni and peas.
  • Isak being extra sweet, peeling an orange and building a fairy fort for Iris (it had pink wings). Take that Baba Yaga.
  • Watching Mom at the town meeting online speaking for the anti-casino bunch. She was great! 10 months ago

  • A successful trip to buy a new family calendar and turn recycling earnings into Pokemon cards.
  • Blue skies and light breezes.

Ru ~ dig deeperThank-you.

I was just sitting here thinking about how lucky I am to have a lovely daughter that can throw up on me, a (usually) sweet son that can have the odd grumpy morning, and moving stress because we have a house to move to – what a schmuck am I for grousing.

I have a number of friends and family going through some truly trying times – I need to pull out of the overwhelm and put things into perspective.

Iris is sleeping, M. just returned, and the rain has stopped. I hope your difficulties iron out as well. Four leaf clovers and moonbows to you, dear Tikini. 10 months ago

Ru ~ dig deeperWhen it rains it pours

Having a bit of an Alexander day so far… I woke up to a sick toddler who promptly threw up all over me, herself, our bed, etc. On the bright side we’re all freshly bathed with jasmine scented hair now. After three upheavals she seems to be feeling better, though still pale and clingy.

Isak has Sports Day today, but decided to move in slow motion this morning, be a sad sack, and shun his oatmeal breakfast. I tied up my wet hair and we slogged through the pouring rain to the school, but I couldn’t stay because M. needs to do another van run to the new place before we return it and Iris couldn’t leave the house. The last run is in progress now and I’m hoping he gets back in time for me to head down to catch a few events. Poor… everyone.

I’ll do what I can do today, fate may throw further monkey wrenches at me and I’ll try to dodge them as best as I can. At least it’s Friday… (just keep swimming)

Retroactive happiness…

January 8, 2013

  • Slept in (oops) but the morning went smoothly and we made up for lost time.
  • Watching Finding Nemo with the kids and a vat of buttery popcorn.
  • Gratitude for a long baby nap (tired from a busy fairy day?) – it meant a leisurely lavender soak.
  • Big sprawling puppy hugs from a boy who will someday be too big for such things. Taking all I can get now.



January 9, 2013

  • Up early, the silence shone while I indulged in cookie butter and cinnamon bagels with coffee on the side. Heaven.
  • Less rain and warmer weather.
  • Free wireless at Isak’s class.
  • The nefarious beerbot (Iris sneaking into the kitchen with a box on her head pretending to be a robot).
  • Bubble baths and fierce underpants. 10 months ago

Ru ~ dig deeperIn hot water

Our first big purchase at the house? A brand new hot water tank to replace the ancient one that came with it.

Our house inspector said the old one was past retirement age but had some life left in it, then one of M’s co-workers (who deals with such things) got us a great deal on a shiny new Rheem, so we decided to go ahead and take care of it before something goes wrong. He came by and installed it over the weekend. We’re eternally grateful and will think of him fondly when we rotate our taps.

Very satisfying in a “We’re grown-ups and own a house now” kind of way. I may celebrate with a trip to Lush to pick up something to add to the aforementioned hot water.

Now if only we could wrangle a new bathtub…10 months ago


Ru ~ dig deeperCountless things

(Trouble getting online here earlier)

Busy day. We’re making much moving headway, swinging from chaos pile to chaos pile with some polishing along the way. Taking advantage of the borrowed van and double offers of babysitting – hoping to fall down happily this evening with a feeling of great accomplishment and perhaps a pint of golden bubbly ale.

Ru ~ dig deeperStolen breath

So, so tired – Iris didn’t react well to her shot yesterday and has been fussy, feverish, and wired (or at best extremely clingy). It’s pouring buckets out, I slept in and had to push hard to be on time this morning, and there are school events to attend and van runs to do (we return it tomorrow). Feeling anxious, overwhelmed, exhausted. Hopefully if we get a few vanloads moved today everything will feel more manageable.

I’ll focus on the upbeat: despite the weather shift I’m migraine-less, we managed to do an extraordinary amount of things yesterday, I have an offer to drop Iris off with a friend tomorrow, and there’s a nice volunteer tea to enjoy at the school. I’m feeling motivated to pick up my mood by the scruff of the neck and get going (just keep swimming, just keep swimming).

Taking my breath back. Deeply.

Ru ~ dig deeperBlack dog howl

Cheers… I wish, I can’t do it all & think I’m about to burn out hard. Had a little chat with my doctor about that today while Iris was getting poked with needles. I don’t know what I’m running on (anxiety?). I need sleep and a day with nothing on my list, but I don’t see it until after we move. I want to keel over by choice for a bit before the old black dog comes after me. I don’t think I have the energy to run very fast.

Sorry, having a bit of a descent tonight – I’ll probably have recuperated by the morning. Thank-you. :)10 months ago

Retroactive happiness…

January 7, 2013

  • Back to school! The alarm failed, but we pulled off a great flail through the cold, hard rain. The fresh air, pretty droplets, and slow return pace were enjoyable.
  • Coming home and climbing back into my pjs after a night of family insomnia.
  • Warming up my hands around a mug of warm chai.
  • Not cutting my feet when I accidentally smashed 3 glass jars in the kitchen (cue Annie Lennox).
  • A great evening class where Isak and I made a new friends!

Ru ~ dig deeperEvisceration and fornication

I can certainly respect some people being put off by some of the content, and it’s definitely not something we’ll be watching while the kids are awake. We’re finding the series itself is fantastic – captivating, well acted and gorgeously filmed…

I don’t mind some in-context darkness and roughage, as long as there’s a point to it, though some scenes wouldn’t be on my top ten for a re-watch and I’d want to know where the remote was in case any little people woke up and wandered in.

I may read the books later… a good friend said she went in that order and that they’re well worth it. I wonder if I can tweak Netflix to get it here… hmmmmmmn. Appealing. 10 months ago

I could use a good fort building long about now, hiding under a blanket seems much more appealing than anything on my current list of things to do.
