Sharing Sunday: Week 13

I was in the shower with the 5 year old yesterday. I needed to shave and he was dirty so we joined forces. At the end of it we were standing in ankle deep water from Bang having put the plug in the drain. I started stomping and splashing. He laughed and splashed with me. The curtain was closed so I thought it was safe. But then DW comes busting through the door like she was a one woman SWAT team. Then I heard the smoke detectors blaring. I thought for sure I was going to have to flee a burning house wrapped in a towel. Turns out the bathroom floor somehow got flooded and water was pouring from the smoke detector on the ceiling directly below the new pool room formerly known as the bathroom. The water shorted the detector and set it off. Since all three detectors are wired together they were all blaring. Because they were blaring, the bird was squawking. DW’s blood pressure soared. We have a guy coming to find out why our pool bathroom decided to empty into the floor below.

For now… happy reading!

Sunday Share: The Monday Edition

So I didn’t do a Sunday Share yesterday. I did laundry instead.

Today is the first day of spring! We celebrated by shovelling 8 inches of snow out of the driveway. The wet and heavy kind.

Our road trip went well. We accomplished the three things we set out to do – Discovery Centre, visit the boys cousins, and Hope for Wildlife. The Discovery Centre was overcrowded as was March Break and every kid in Nova Scotia was out of school. Visiting DW’s brother and sister-in-law was great. Hope for Wildlife was as uncrowded as the Discovery Centre was crowded. We are planning a trip back this summer when the weather is warmer. I made a vlog style video documenting the trip. I’m currently working on uploading it, but it’s moving as slow as a toddler up the stairs. It’s uploaded! Please check it out. It’s lots of fun!

Sunday Share Week 11

Good Morning, Sunday! I hope everyone had a good night’s sleep. Good luck catching that lost hour for those of you who turned your clocks ahead. Crash was up at 6:30 (really 5:30 before the clocks the changed). Bang was up at 7 (really 6 before the time change). Fortunately, this is our March Break so we don’t have school all week. Lots of time for them to get caught up. Or be so tired and cranky that I’ll fear for their survival.

Have a great day!

Sunday Share Week 10

Welcome to week 10. Week 9 was supposed to be lucky because 9 is a lucky number in this house. It was and and it wasn’t. My new GoPro arrived in the mail a month after I sent my broken one back to them. So be on the look out for some fun YouTube videos. Then yesterday we went to file our taxes only to find out we owe. WTH? We don’t owe much, just enough to be annoying.

On a more positive note, I’m not sure if you’ve heard of this “new” show called Little Big Shots. I say new, but it’s second season just premiered tonight. What a fantastic, family friendly show. If you haven’t seen it, Steve Harvey interviews kids who are either smart, funny, or talented and they never fail to disappoint. I made sure to record it as the boys love to watch it, too. I can’t wait to see their reaction to the 6 year old basketball player.

Hope all y’all have a spectacular week! Here’s what I liked reading last week…

Sunday Share Week 9

Nine weeks into the new year. I guess it’s not new any more. Nine is a lucky number in this house. I was always nine in the sports I played growing up. DW was nine in her sports, too. By sheer luck, Crash was handed his baseball jersey last summer and guess what number was on the back. Nine.

I expect this to be a very lucky week.

Sunday Share Week 7

I could schedule this for the morning. It’s only 6 hours from now. Additionally, it’s called “Sunday Share“. Why share it on a Saturday? For those of you spending your Saturday night browsing Facebook and perusing the blogosphere, I’ll leave these here for you now. Perhaps I’ll have a little something extra for you Sunday evening.

Happy Reading!

Help Me Share…

The “Sunday Share” is coming up in 3 days. I’m going to try something slightly different.

If you leave me a link to a blog post you wrote this week or last down in the comments, I’ll share the link this Sunday. All that I ask is that you visit at least one of the shared posts on Sunday.

Share away and I can’t wait to see what you leave for me!

Also feel free to share this post anyway you can – link, reblog, tweet, etc… The more the merrier!

Sunday Share Week 5

Well, there goes January. Only eleven more months to Christmas!

I know January isn’t officially over, but it’ll be February the next time I write a Sunday Share. I shared a bunch of blogs yesterday in my Mystery Blogger post. They were a bunch of my favorites. Today, I will share some of the newer ones I have discovered. Maybe you’ll find some new ones to follow here, too!
Happy reading!

Sunday Share Week 4

Some bug has infected our house so you might want to read this from a safe distance. Definitely wash your hands with soap and hot water afterwards. Bang caught it last Thursday. Crash caught it last night. I’m not feeling so hot myself. With the exception of DW and Bang going grocery shopping it’s been a pretty quiet day around here.  But you didn’t come here for that. Or at least I hope you didn’t. You came to find some good reads. So what did I find for you this fourth week of January?

Happy reading!

Sunday Share: Week 2

It’s a relatively quiet Sunday here. We made it to Church though the boys didn’t earn Tim Horton’s afterwards because of their behavior. On the plus side, their behavior wasn’t so awful to deserve crusifixion. We came home and did a few chores – the boys cleaned their rooms and put away all the clean laundry I created yesterday. I stripped. 

The bed sheets are need of washing. 

We’re getting ready to go ice skating. We went yesterday and Bang broke his skate trainer so now he needs to learn to skate without it. He can, he just needs to improve. I’ll get some more video of their improvement.

Happy reading!
