Sharing The Love

Leave it to Penelope Anne a.k.a the Sassy Mama at the Cafe At The End Of The Universe to go ahead, and make my day by presenting yours truly with the blog award you see above.

Penelope Anne has got to be one of the nicest, and fun people we have met in the blogosphere, and if you have not already visited her blog then click on that linky, and let her know that Sue sent ya over!

I would love to "Share The Love" with all of my readers who have blogs, so if that is you please do feel free to grab a copy of the image, just be sure to save it to your own machine, and not link directly to it.

Sharing love is one, but sharing bandwidth is quite another! ;)


A Stress Free Family Vacation

Oh I wish! When my kiddos were younger I never had a vacation that was completely without stress, at least from my Mama perspective on things. Do not get me wrong, I would love taking long road trips with the kids, but the love part usually came along with the good memories of the trip, and not the actual time spent in the car during the holiday. :p

I really wish in those days I would have had access to the tips, and suggestions available through the - Parenting section that I have been having a look through this very morning.

Thse articles are excellent in my own humble opinion, and specifically I would like to draw your attention my dear readers to the - Family Life articles that cover family vacations, and most importantly how to make them as stress-free for the entire family (including the Moms) as possible.

Two of the articles that I thought are must-reads for parents planning any road trips with the kids this summer are the Health Tips For Trips, which includes info handy for those travelling by plane as well.

I also really appreciated the article entitled Games for the Road that included some do nots along with the dos that I recognized as mistakes I used to make like packing way too many toys!

I am not sure a stress-free vacation is truly possible even if it is a romantic couples getaway. All vacations have a certain amount of associated stress, but I think that can greatly be reduced by following some simple suggestions, and working them into your own plans.

I know I found some great trips for my July 25th girls camping weekend that will be just the kiddo, and me. It is something I have been looking forward to all winter, and I am now armed with the info I need to make it even better. :D B)

Calling Doctor Bombay!

Yesterday I got the call that anyone would dread, yep a direct phone call from my doctor. Lucky that I live in a country where unlike a lawyer the doc cannot bill me per minute for it. :p

More blood work on Tuesday, and a visit with the specialist Wednesday. I may have to go off of the Tapazole, and consider more permanent solutions to the Graves. At least that is what the doctor has ordered for now.

Everyone Needs To Smile

And everybody loves a good joke! :D

I used to love reading my Mother's old copies of Reader's Digest as a kid growing up here in Toronto, Canada. I can say with honesty that Reader's Digest short stories, and articles contributed a lot to my learning how to read as well as I did from as young of an age as I did.

My fave part of Reader's Digest has always been their jokes, and that has not changed since becoming an adult, especially because I can check out RD Laughs Main site for all the smiles, and jokes I want each, and every day!

If you like watching funny videos than you have got to check out the Stand-up Videos section of their site. It is so easy to use, and si much fun to boot! I've been laughing my butt off since I got up this morning checking out their selection!

If you prefer Funny Cartoons they have got plenty of those too to keep you smiling.

I have signed up for their Jokes RSS feed, and they also have a "Laughs newsletter" that is published weekly, and sure to put a smile on your face.

Since becoming ill I have found that laughter is even more important to me than ever, and I have found much of it with an old favourite in an electronic age format. Thank you Reader's Digest! :D
