Number 700!

This is my 700th blog post! Considering that I am not a "real" blogger, was never able to keep a diary and I feel like I am going crazy half most of the time,  I am very happy to be celebrating this milestone.

Thanks for being a part of my chaotic, boy-filled life xox

If it weren't for these boys, I wouldn't be outnumbered ;)

Woo hoo!

Wow- this is blog post #699... in honour of the upcoming #700, I wanted to write something deep... something meaningful... something poetic... however, I don't have enough brain cells to meet the challenge. So, you get some more photos of Montreal ;) Given that we will have temperatures up to 14C this week, the atmosphere in the city has shifted. People are in better moods... walking straighter... coming back to life... hope it is not a tease ;)

Wishing you all a happy Wednesday evening xox

Look! No snow!

Drying up...

Happy me!

The stores are starting to sell SHORTS!

More shorts!


Happy people!

Even the buildings are starting to sparkle ;)

See- no snow! ;)

Happy Wednesday from Montreal :)

The way my boys hear me...

After a weekend of not being listened to (who am I kidding? This is a permanent state of being for me...), I have come to the conclusion that I AM CHARLIE BROWN'S TEACHER! Except that, unlike some of the characters in this cartoon, no one understands my WAH WAH WAH! ;) 

OK... vent over... happy Monday to you all xox

Sunday morning

I cannot even begin to describe how nice it was to not have an alarm to wake up to this morning.... ;) We still woke up fairly early (before 7am) but enjoyed some quiet time together... catching up on coffee, news, Youtubers, video games, blogs and recipe websites. The afternoon will be filled with sport events and homework but, for now, let's enjoy the moment...

Happy Sunday to you all! xox

Half of the family... Nicka is hiding under the blanket (it is cosier that way). Alexander was still sleeping and Andreas was taking out the other dog :)

Tough life ;)

Out from under the blanket ;)

Playing video games takes concentration, mamma ;)

No words....

No words.... just more snow.... I cannot wait until June ;)


I had to stop and get out of the stupid storm...

I ended up taking the bus into work... best $3.25 I ever spent ;)

Montreal snow dump

As mentioned yesterday, we had a snow storm... and it only finished after I got to work today. Needlessly to say, there is a lot of #$@@#** snow on the ground. So, to spare you the vent, I will just post some pictures. If you like them, I am happy. If you also dislike snow or are sick of it, then you can sympathize with me.. It is not like we had a crappy winter to date.... I just miss my sandals... and my sanity ;)

Happy Monday ;)

This is a car... seriously...

See... you can just make it out ;)

This weekend...

This weekend had a lot of action.. good action... ;) It was filled with soccer, basketball,swimming, coffee, wine, snow and friends!

It is Sunday night now... and there is a snowstorm going on outside =  more snow. The boys are hoping for a snow day tomorrow. I am hoping for trains that are on time in the morning rush hour ;)

Wishing you all a great week ahead xox

All day soccer tournament on Saturday for me :)

My post tournament glass of wine

Happy Sunday evening to you all xox
