Canadian Tire Spring Tune-Up Checklist & Twitter Party Details

Compared to last year's snowmaggedon that took place here in the Maritimes, we have had a fairly mild, but still a long enough winter! I can barely wait to pack away my winter clothes, put out the patio furniture and start digging in the garden. It is also the time of year when I am inspired to throw open the windows and let in the fresh spring air, give the house a good cleaning, paint walls, organize my closets and generally get ready for the long, lazy days of summer. As we prepare for … [Read more...]

Destination: Back to Campus {Plus #StudentLife Hack Contest & Twitter Party}

I lived at home, with my parents, while pursuing a post-secondary education so I didn't need to worry about purchasing such items as living room, kitchen and bedroom furniture, all the accessories, and everything needed to outfit a kitchen. However, our son and daughter did not live at home and were both faced with setting up an apartment. Fortunately, they both had roommates, which helped make an overwhelming task become a bit more manageable. Between two, three or four people, you can … [Read more...]

We would reluctantly come home when called, not on a cell phone, but by hearing your mom or dad holler,"Monica, dinner time". After dinner we would go back outside until the street lights came on! You remember doing that, don't you? My friends and I would spend hours playing Hopscotch, Simon Says, Hide-and-Seek, Red Rover and of … [Read more...]
