I love those mornings when I am able to wake up and have my coffee while everyone else in the house is still asleep.
I am able to sip my coffee slowly, without fear that it will be knocked over, grabbed off the table by tiny wandering hands, and without fear that hubby will grab a quick "sip" (sip in his vocab means chug) as he is running out the door for work. Just me, my computer and my coffee for at least another 20 minutes....probably my favorite time of day! Although my brain is running through the list of todays to-do's its still a time that I am allowed to just SIT!

My daughter is in Quebec city for an overnight trip with school. She left yesterday morning and she will back tonight around 8 or 9. Even though she is 13 and very smart, I still worry when she is away, especially when she is that far away..... and yes I am sure she will read this and roll her eyes ( I think its an automatic teenage reaction to anything I say). I miss you KiKi and cant wait to have you home!

One of the things on my to-do list today is to organize my filling cabinet....and oh how I dread it! I will keep you posted on the progress later this evening and hopefully I will have had some success!

And with that P is awake, calling for Mommy from his bed, have a good day everyone T.G.I.F!!!

Im Back!!!!!

Sometimes our days can be so routine, hours pass by like minutes, days pass by like weeks, and most of us don't take the time to stop and smell the roses. Well I have decided in 2012 I was going to change that for our family. We need to re-align our priorities. We need to start making memories, I want my kids to grow up and say "Remember that time when...", I want photos and scrapbooks and souvenirs! So hold on to your hats fellow readers this year is going to be a fun one and I look so much forward to sharing it with all of you!

A new venture for us this year as well is that we bought our first home what a nerve racking and stressful even that is! So much to do and everything happens so quickly! Thankfully we have an awesome real estate agent by our side, who has gone above and beyond his duties and has been there for us every step of the way! I hope you all can join me as I write about our journey, and all our ups and downs :)
