Didja ever have a day when you deleted the post you'd just spent ages writing??? Harumph. Ever notice how your cool lead in line doesn't sound as wonderful the second time you type it?
It's October, we've moved 40 minutes closer to Toronto to save Hubs the commute. Sold the house, rented an apartment (part of a house), and I have an in-home office.
It's all new and shiny- from the house to the neighbourhood  to the lifestyle.  I'm in training. I've started running and working out. Still gotta control my eating more, but it's underway. See, in 2016 I plan to participate in a Tough Mudder, God willing. I thought my first step should be learning to run. Using the free Couch to 5Km (C25K) program, I'm up to 2.25 miles. I'm only 7 weeks in, people! The first week I thought the 60 second running, 60 second walking would take me out- look at me now! I follow Dan Pearce's Single Dad Laughing Health Club on facebook (SDLHC), and everyone has been super encouraging and supportive.  So I started doing some of the exercise challenges. Ever heard of a Burpee? If you haven't, you don't want to! Jump down, throw your legs back, do a push up, jump up (like in jump off the ground). I'm up to 7. That's in addition to planks, crunches, wall sits, squats, leg raises, mountain climbers,  and push ups. I'm doing a combination of regular and modified push ups until I get more strength in my arms. I'm at 6 each right now. I thought solid arms meant strong arms, but I'm still struggling along. All good things come in time, though, and I plan to work out til I'm as fitty as can be.
Well, I had a lot more to say, but it will have to wait. 
Love to you all, my peeps. Big hugs from Mama Bear.

Hello, faithful readers… yes, the dead have arisen! Sorry for the long break.

I have been very busy looking for, getting depressed, and finally finding, work. Then very busy doing said work… couldn’t even do properly this year.  I have been intently following some people’s stories on facebook, and wishing (which does NO good) that I had more time to do my stuff. Then kicked self, as I was off work for a YEAR and stopped blogging back in April. It’s true that busy people get more done. Well, I have stood up, shaken out my skirts, and started the journey once more.

What have you all been doing? I have been chasing around with my grown children and my mum and hubby.  Mid summer my middlest child brought me a puppy!! And I love him. He is a schnoodle and very intelligent (yes, always thinking), and already larger than originally advertised by said middle child. *stern face* He also has a lower canine that is NOT on the outside of his jawline where it should be.  Could be surgery in his future.

Spring! and St George's Day

I think.. maybe.. wait! .. no.. yes! Yes, Spring is here :)  And that means clothes on the line, clearing the garden, branches out to the curb from their current beaver-dam like pile by the back fence, and fixing the fence.  It's also St George's Day, which you would probably know - if you have English blood in you.

Hi.. miss me? It's been a crazy two months - all those holidays, and food resolutions, et cetera..
as well as plastering two counties with resumes.

Merry Christmas!

Dear Blog readers,
Today there was a facebook post from Atheists of America who want to 'keep the merry, and dump the myth'.  If someone doesn't want to celebrate Christmas because they don't believe the Son of God loved them enough to come here and live and die and rise again so they could be reunited with God, (theme of Christmas), and they don't want to celebrate the pagan mid-winter holiday (date of Christmas -Jesus being born when it was warm enough to sleep outside), then why are they participating in this? Why not stand down, as the Jehovah's Witnesses choose to do?
