I'm Back - sort of


I know - it's been awhile since I posted - and thank you to those of you who checked in with me by email while I was absent.

We're back in the city ......... and I am glad... it was a rough summer for me... mostly cause the weather didn't cooperate - lots of rain and cold temps.  

Last week the lil one turned 9!! and she had 2 parties with us........ and enjoyed 2 birthday cakes! and 2 special birthday dinners.


She also climbed on the school bus for the first time in over a year.  I loved THAT!  and I love her new school hours - from 9 - 4 (well those are the hours she's out of the house) Her old hours were 7:30 - 2:30 and for some reason 9 - 4 feels much much longer and I seem to be getting so much more done!  THAT lifts my spirits - I love a clean tidy house - and all the cleaning seems to be helping with my issue of loss of control.... which means I have been able to eat again... which is a very good thing!  Sir Steve has registered her in swimming classes and dance again.  She is back on the competitive dance team!!  Hopefully she'll get to compete this year. 

 I saw youngest daughter and grandkids a lot this summer - twice at the campsite and last weekend we ran down to Quebec to celebrate my middle grandson's birthday.  It was so good to be together as a family again. 
(god only knows how long it will last - considering how the covid numbers are climbing again!! School has been in for only 4 days and we already have 2 schools with covid!! UGH!!)

There hasn't been a whole lot of 'fun and games' between Sir Steve and myself... no play and yeah no sexy times either.  Colour me sad.  BUT Sir Steve is dealing with some health issues ....... and it is time for my yearly cancer scan (this Friday) and that's always a major worry for me (and Sir Steve too)  There are days that my spirits plummet - cause ya know - I'd just like to get 'back to normal'..........(please tell me THIS isn't our new normal)

Now I think I have you all brought up to date on our life............ I promise to try posting something/anything more often............


  1. Hi Morningstar,

    It's so great to hear from you! I've been wondering about you and worried you hadn't posted.

    Sorry to hear summer wasn't great weather wise. I'm hoping for a good one here!

    Happy belated birthday to the lil one. Two parties and cakes...lucky girl. Hooray for going back to school! Sending positive thoughts that her school remain covid free and that the numbers reduce. After so long covid free we currently have cases again thanks to a leak from a managed isolation facility. It looks like we are on the road to being covid free again though, fingers crossed!

    Wishing you the best for the screening. Will be thinking of you. I hope too that the health issues Sir Steve is facing are able to be swiftly resolved or managed.


    1. thanks Roz - I'm trying to hold positive thoughts over our health issues.

  2. I'm so glad to see this post. and i'm glad you've gotten some control by way of cleaning the house LOL. I'm also very glad you're eating again!

    Good luck for the upcoming medical check up!

    1. medical check up - what a great way of looking at it.. maybe if I thought of it as simply a check up I wouldn't stress so much!!!

  3. Very glad to see you back! I love the new school hours too. Whether you're an early riser or not, knowing you have until 4:00 instead of 2:30 seems to give you tons more time.

    Nice that you had birthday to celebrate with people you wanted to see. No this is NOT the new normal, but normal is taking a while to come back. I wish you all the best for your medical test.

  4. Glad to see you back! Our schools are back too, but sad to see swarms of high-schoolers crowded around the Subway and other fast-food outlets at lunchtime, with no masks or social distancing. I'm afraid this will be the new normal, as numbers climb, especially in schools.

    Good luck with the Friday scan. I will be sending positive vibes your way.


    1. the whole school thing really scares me - especially with the number of children coming down with covid :(

      thanks for the positive vibs.... every little bit helps :)
