There's been a major update and overhaul and the blog has moved. Only posts pre-2015 are on this site. But please check out the new website here.

Jersey Shore and George Clooney

So Thursday I was having a terrible horrible no good very bad day (Alexander is awesome). Later that night though I came across two things on my facebook that totally cheered me up and gave me great laughs! :D

The first thing that totally made my day was when Serendipity Literary Agency shared this photo on their Facebook page:

So so true! :D And don't you just love the pic of a book jumping off a shelf? :P

Second Virgin Radio shared this commercial:

I couldn't stop laughing!

Hope these fun things made you smile or laugh just like they did me! 


The Unfathomable Awesomeness of Star Wars

So I had to have been about 11 years old when it happened. When I first heard those two awesome words, "Star Wars". A friend of my father's happened to mention it while my sisters and I were around. We asked my Dad what Star Wars was and his friend couldn't believe we'd never seen the movies. So my Dad borrowed his VHS (Yeah crazy eh? We had a rewinder and everything. Back in the 'olden' days) and we watched Episodes IV, V, and VI.

I've loved Star Wars ever since. Who doesn't like the absolutely lovable R2 with his beeps and blips? 3PO's annoying and funny antics. And who could forget the mighty Chewbacca? For me the Star Wars movies are my go to favourite science fiction fix. Although my absolutely favourite aspect is the romances! Anakin and Padme, Han and Leia. "You like me because I'm a scoundrel." :D 

The big reason why I'm blogging about this is because for my husband's birthday we got Star Wars on Blu-ray. What a difference! I love it! I also can't wait to watch all the bonus features. If it was up to me, I'd be a Jedi in a heartbeat. If you've never seen Star Wars, go watch them. Now. What are you waiting for? Go! :D 

May the Force be with You.


Driving a Bus

I apologize for the extra long hiatus but I'm back now! :D I'll be posting at least every Tuesday, maybe a little bit more.

I'm now officially driving a school bus, hence the extra long hiatus as I got used to my new routine and everything else I had to manage. My husband started post-secondary the same day I picked up kids in a bus for the first time. Needless to say there's been a lot of changes in our house in the last little while but we're both adjusting and starting to get into a routine.

There's pros and cons to driving a school bus. -- I love the kids, I like the routine I'm getting. I like coming home after my morning route at 9am and feeling crazy that I've done so much before an hour I would usually sleep in to. I like feeling confident behind the wheel and meeting new people (other drivers, teachers etc).  I like how good the kids (one boy in particular) are with my 1.5 year old son. -- I don't like waking up super early and going to bed early. I don't like the long waits and how much time my son has to spend in a car just to go get my bus. I don't like the hassle of getting spare buses if something goes wrong with mine.

All in all though, it's been a pretty good week.
