A Day In My Life – Interruptions 


Here’s how my day has progressed so far. 

Woke up this morning to 22c weather and decided to take my coffee and book outside to relax. MM interrupted me because he had to get the grill going. 

I went into my office to get some work done. MM interrupted, needing to know where something was (it was in front of his face on the kitchen counter the entire time). 

Tried getting a run in on the treadmill, MM surprisingly interrupted to let me know he had to leave the house. 

J came at me barely two minutes later, wanting me to watch him practice pitch. 

What is it about headphones in my ears that makes people think, “I’m sure she’s not busy, I’ll interrupt her now”??

Stick a fork in me, I’m done. 

For the rest of the day, I’m going to sit in plain view and do absolutely nothing because I know I won’t get five minutes of peace today no matter how hard I try. So I give up. I’ll wait for tomorrow. 

And, just as I’m typing this, J needs help with his card tricks. 

Mothers intuition. 


A Day In My Life – Happy Canada Day!


Happy Canada Day to all my Canadian followers!

Today is going much better than the first two days of summer holidays.

At the last minute, my son was asked to be part of a float in the Canada Day Parade in our city. So he took off with his dad this morning to join a skateboarding group to promote safety. I wish I had pictures to show all of you, but the only pictures I’ve got include my son (and I don’t publish pics of my son online – it’s all about safety, people!).

They had a half-pipe and a live punk band on the float. Seriously, coolest float ever?? Hellz yeah! And my son had a great time considering his cousin was also part of the parade float. It was nice to see them spending quality time together doing something they love.

I, on the other hand, have been stuck at home still trying to fix up this minor baseball tournament schedule that has caused me nothing but a headache since yesterday. But I think I have a good handle on it now, so hopefully I’ll be able to put it aside soon. Regardless, I didn’t get to see my son in the actual parade. I got updates from MM through texts.

After the parade, we packed up our bat bags and headed to the batting cages for a little practice. Our diamond is eerily quiet today so we got some pitching practice in as well. 

I made a nice big dinner of roast, carrots, potatoes, and onions for the boys to celebrate this momentous day. 

And we’ll be leaving soon to go to the cinema to catch a movie before bedtime. 

It’s been a full day with a lot to do. But this is my life and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
