Highs & Lows – Week of March 27th

Happy Friday folks! Busy weekend ahead?

Ours is shaping up to be pretty quiet except for Margs’ swimming lessons. Mer has been working evening shift all week and we’re all extra tired from the change of routine. We’ll be spending the weekend eating good food, relaxing, taking walks, watching movies and resting up for the coming week.

If you’re just catching up here are the posts that I published this week.


Surviving a complete change of schedule. Our little family was thrust into a night shift this week. Every few months, Mer works a 3 pm – 12 am shift for a couple of weeks. Well, it’s the first time he’s on this shift since Margs has developed a little bit of separation anxiety. She’s super excited to have her dad home during the day and we were really worried about how her nighttime routine would go since he usually puts her to sleep for the night. This little girl is a rock star and has been adapting like a champ all week!

A few small home reno projects are being discussed. When we bought this house last year it was pretty much in move in condition. There were a few things we wanted to change but agreed that they weren’t pressing issues and that we’d hold off. Mer and I have been discussing tackling each project and I’m really excited to get started. Our list includes: removing wallpaper from our foyer and painting it a neutral color, repainting the powder room which currently has a black ceiling and landscaping the front of the house to give it a little more curb appeal. I’m looking forward to taking this on!



Rainy wetness most of the week. It rained on and off all week which meant Margs and I didn’t get the chance to play outside much. Thankfully her father was home during the day and she thought it was the coolest thing ever. Yesterday was absolutely gorgeous and I’m crossing my fingers for nice weather this weekend because all this rain is a real downer.

Baby blood work. It’s done and I guess that’s what counts but oh man the process sucked. I’m crossing my fingers her results are fine and we wont have to venture down that road again anytime soon (routine anemia work up). In a nutshell it took 2 phlebotomists and Mer to hold her down. It was just awful.


What are your highs and lows for this fine week of March 27th?

  1. Highs – Wyatt had nothing but good days at school this week. We have some issues with temper control, but he was excellent all week. Lows – family drama and a decision to just separate myself from it all to avoid continued conflict.


      1. Hopefully it doesn’t leave a scar. I once burned my wrist (wrist got stuck to hot espresso pot) and had to go to the er and they asked me to buy a cream with zinc to prevent scarring.


  2. Low – my best friends birth announcement! Of course Im happy for her, but dealing with birth announcements four months after losing Evalyn is sometimes hard to take. High – booking a get-a-way break with my little family to get the hell outta here in a couple of weeks! And sunny days! . . Life is so much better with sunny days 🙂 xxx


    1. Also, with tomorrow being April fools day I just want to give you a heads up that fake pregnancy announcements and such are a very popular prank. I tend to avoid Facebook altogether because it just gets too much. One year there were 11 friends who thought it was absolutely hilarious to announce a fake pregnancy.

      1. I’ve literally just posted a blog about that!! 🙂 I will be avoiding the best I can . . . and also taking much pleasure in deleting anyone who finds that acceptable behaviour!! xx

  3. Highs-Working a lot which means extra money! Also volunteering at the Humane Society and taking some dogs out for an off-site adoption event tomorrow. After that I’ll be taking my parents out to dinner at a place that I love and they’ve never been. Should be fun!

    Lows-My glass flameworking class ended this week, which is a bittersweet moment. I had a lot of fun, but hopefully I can take another class in the future. Working so much has also meant that I’ve been neglecting other things, not to mention being so exhausted! Swing shifts are not ideal.

    Really hoping for a weather change around here too, it’s been super gloomy and rainy. Definitely not my favorite. I need some sunshine!
