It’s been awhile since I shared more of my story on how I got to this part of my journey in life. I think I’m ready to share some more. The story of my life, as I read it over, puts a pit in my stomach. I do want to share that life is not this way anymore. Yes, ups and downs and sometimes things get crazy, but there is unity and connection. Most of […]

Is this the hill I want to die on today?

Is this the hill I want to die on today? This was a question I often asked myself when things were getting “crazy” with the kids or myself. It helped me to pick and choose my battles throughout the day (when I remembered it). I was out with a friend Tuesday and we were talking about our kids. Specifically about how they test out boundaries. I believe it’s good for our kids to tread some […]

I just stumbled across an article Dr. Phil put out on the internet. Puts my knickers in a twist! The article is about Teenage mothers. Through this whole article there is nothing but negative statistics. However, true some may be, there is plently of good as well. There is also talk of the show Teen Mom 2. I’d like to add my opinion on this show, a couple of years ago my daughters were watching it. […]

This too shall pass…I promise! ;)

Have you ever taken your little ones out and things just go crazy?  Kids have tantrums or misbehave in public?   At times I felt I was the only one who had ever experienced the sheer embarrassment of the stares and judgements from people because of a child’s freak out? Much to my relief, I’m  not. Ok so this truly truly happened. Many years ago when Bekah was two years old, we were in church. […]

Hey! Corinne has been doing co-op at a restaurant since November of last year. This was her last week there. I went to have breakfast once and tried to play it low key as to not distract or embarrass her (hehe). Mind you, I took out my phone and was trying to take pictures of her making desserts and working away to share with the rest of the family. Oh boy was I beaming with […]

Got Love?

Relationship

Love. So much talk on love. Oooey gooey love. But really, when we strip it down past the surface emotion of butterflies in the tummy and that excitement of another significant other, there is a deeper love that comes from the depths of our soul. I like to call it real love. My favourite definition of love is this: Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is […]

Diets?

I started an exercise plan with my friend this morning. We always committed to a daily walk and catch up with one another but we decided to take the exercising a bit further. Last week she shared with me a diet that we could lose up to ten pounds in one week. I share this with my husband Rob and family. Rob looks over this diet and we read the daily food intake etc..This diet consisted of […]

Does anyone out there know of the term “bats in the cave”? This term in new to me. My daughter Corinne  had a friend of the opposite sex over, she comes up to me and whispers, “hey mum, any bats in the cave?” I say, “what? what are bats in the cave?”, she says, through clenched teeth and lifting her head towards the ceiling so I can see up her nose, “muuuummmmm, bats in the […]

It’s been a lazy day in the Lane house today. I went out for a nice long walk with my dog Oliver. Ollie is 11 years old. He’s a mix breed of, ok ready for this? beagle, scottish terrier, wiener dog and cocker spaniel!! He’s the first dog I ever owned. What a great stress reliever he has been for me. My hubby gets a little upset when I refer to Oliver as my BFF […]

Today has not been a good day. You see, at times I still suffer from the effects of my childhood. There will be days I feel wonderful and like I’ve got all the “crazy” beat, and then there’s those times, it takes me down at the knees. Today is one of those days. It all started last night. One thing led to another and “the crazy lady” in my head was “allowed to go to […]
