Sunday Share: Week 26

We’ve crossed the summer equinox here in the North. The days are long. Though here in Canadaland, they aren’t quite warm yet. Some days are, mind you. It just depends on how you define “warm”. It was 18 C today. For us, that’s warm. If you live in Lebanon, you’ll need your winter coat. My O’s still suck, but I wouldn’t be a true fan if I only rooted in the good times. And I made mozzarella pepperoni stuffed chicken this evening that was totally delicious. You should check out my instagram to see it. You can follow me there, too.

busWatching our kids grow through the school can be rewarding. Even more so when your kid has ADHD. We do what we have to do to help them have a successful year.

wonderoakJess at Wonderoak illustrates how she is learning to parent while parenting. Sometimes you just don’t need to rush. Sometimes waiting is all that’s required to survive, especially with a strong willed child.




Sunday Share: Week 24

Counting tomorrow, we still have three Monday’s of school left. We go the whole way through June. Though teachers and kids are starting their summer wind up. It’s close enough to smell, too far away to touch. Like the cookies in the oven. We don’t have any plans set in stone yet. Except for beaching, camping, hiking, kayaking, bon firing, and baseballing.


Do you have any summer plans?

Sunday Share: Week 23

My Orioles are 22.5 games behind 1st place so I’m not even going to bother wasting space talking about them here. Just know that I’m a die hard fan and will root for them win or lose. Even when they’re better at losing. They’ve lost more games than the first place team has won. I’m spiteful enough to not even name the first place team. Or the second place.

It was a good Sunday here in the Wood house. Crash mowed our neighbor’s yard. Then he mowed our yard. Color me impressed. Meanwhile, his brother couldn’t be bother to put his laundry away. Oh well. 1 for 2 is still better than the Orioles.

Sunday Share: Week 22

I love my Sunday Shares. It’s a chance for me let you know what I’m reading. It also allows me give shout outs to those who I think deserve a virtual high five. I try to have a mix of veteran bloggers and some new to the scene. That’s what the blogosphere is all about, community. We all get bigger by building each other up. So if there is someone you’d like give a lift to, leave me a link down in the comments so we can go check them out.

We can’t give them perfection. We can give them something better.

I hope all you mothers had a fabulous day. Whether you got breakfast in bed, supper from your significant other, handmade gifts or store bought gifts or gift cards, hope it was all in the name of love.

Today in church when Father asked all the mothers to stand for a blessing, I stood up, too. DW laughed so hard she was crying. She thinks I wasn’t listening, but really I just wanted to show my support for all the moms.

A to Z Conclusion

Hey diddle diddle
The cat and the fiddle
M jumped over the moon
The dog laughed to see such a sport
and X ran away with the spoon.

(that’s my explanation as to why there is no M or X)

So in conclusion, I only missed two letters, M and X while Z was a day late. I enjoyed the challenge as it gave me a goal. I work better when I know what I’m working toward. Also, it gives my creative juices a bit more chutzpah. We could all use an extra dose of creative chutzpah sometimes. In case you missed any of them, here they are in all their glory.

A is for… Ascend
B is for… Breath
C is for… Chaos
D is for… Doing
E is for… Everything
F is for… Go Ask Your Father…
G is for… Good
H is for… Raising kids properly
I is for… Indecisive
J is for… Jokes
K is for… Kwestions
L is for… Learning
M ran away with the spoon
N is for… Normal
O is for… Ornery
P is for… Pee and Poop
Q is for… Questions
R and S are for… Go Ask Your Father…
T is for… Time (and other things)
U is for… Undivided and Unconditional
V is for… Vamonos
W is for… What?
X laughed to see such a sport
Y is for… Youth
Z is for… The End

It’s Sunday. It’s raining. I’m trying to make the boys clean, but I’d have better luck trying to teach Chinese Calculus to a barrel of monkeys. It’s their own mess, too.

The peppers are coming along nicely in the living room. As is the maple tree. We have carrots, cucumber, beans, peas, and lettuce seeds anxiously waiting to be planted in the garden. We just need to get past the last frost which is somewhere between now and May 21st. I’ll probably plant them next week and keep them covered.

Until then, here’s something to read…

MApparently, M is for mystery. I looked all over town yesterday for it and couldn’t find it at all. My get up and go got up and went taking my motivation to write with it. Oh well. I found it this evening. It was in the bag of chips and bowl of salsa that I just devoured.

Here comes a new week. Lets make the most of it!

Sunday Share: Y2W15

I skipped The Share last Sunday in lieu of the A-Z Challenge. Sorry ’bout that. I had a successful week to start the challenge, though. I didn’t miss a single letter. I didn’t use a wrong letter, either. In light of a successful week of challenging, I thought I’d share some posts I read during the challenge that I think you should read, too.

I’ve got nothing else to do, anyway. It’s snowing and it’s going to snow for 8 inches. Snow day predictor says there’s a 99% chance school will be cancelled tomorrow. If it is, I’ll go for a run at 6 am instead of packing lunches.

Stop laughing, DW. I’m serious. Mostly.
