absence

I haven't been on here much lately, have I? Although I am always thinking of things that I'd like to post on the blog as I work through my day, we are so very busy. The crazy rush of Christmas is over, New Year's celebrations are done and we are settling back into a life of skating lessons, pottery, playdates and practising sleeping without waking the whole house for a glass of water.

I can't seem to find my camera charger, hence, no photos. I know it is somewhere that when I find it I'll go, "Dude! I should have KNOWN!" but until then.....

Liv has been Irish Dancing again, which she loves....and seems to enjoy doing it to Boney M's Rasputin...


Briar has been enjoying skating and has been rethinking his previous career asperations of being a skateboarding tow truck driver with an orange truck decorated with rainbows. He now talks of being a goalie for the Toronto Maple Leafs (his daddy's favourite team).

Our sweet loving Cedar has been rehomed. Oh, how I wanted to keep that puppy. When I rescued him from his prior living arrangements, I hadn't planned on keeping him so I was not prepared financially or practically. I even thought of giving up Freckles after all the damage he has caused around the house, but I feel that when you adopt an animal, it's for life. So, Freckles stays and Cedar gets a wonderful new home with our vet and her family! I couldn't ask for a better home and we get to babysit Cedar when they go on holidays.

So we are settling back into our routine. I am feeling more relaxed and calm than I have in sometime. I'll be back more often....promise. *Off to find the bloody camera battery charger.....

Good luck with the hunt for the charger. I'm always losing things, too, but in fairness it's often because my 17-month-old has put it someplace very safe. Toddlers are fun that way!

And I'm sorry to hear about Cedar, but it does sound like it's for the best. You've given him a great home, and that's all any dog could ask for.

Silly as it sounds, I usually ask Arron to bring back whatever it is that I have lost. He was such a practical joker, that I am convinced he continues to play ghostly games with me. When I ask, it usually turns up shortly after...

Sounds like Ceder has found the perfect home!

And have I told you our news? xxx

Jackie...Every time I click on to read your blog I'm inspired. I'm not a widow and I don't even remember how I discovered this little gem of yours, but I'm so glad I did. Your children are adorable, your writings insightful, and your strength and courage commendable.

Thank you for sharing that little bit of you and your children. Really. Thank you. Your children are lucky to have a parent who "gets it" who understands that the healing process for both you and them is going to manifest in many different ways. Good luck in 2010! I'll look forward to reading about your family adventures.
