Things I hate

Maybe hate is too strong of a word.  I won't want Calder to say it, so let's say these are things I strongly dislike.

1.  People who were watering their lawn yesterday.

2.  When one lane of traffic is closed and cars zoom to the front of the line to merge, rather than merging in their place.

3.  Mosquitos.

4.  Vacuuming.  I would rather do the bathrooms any day.

5.  Getting up before 6 am.

6.  People who don't wear a belt with their jeans (this only includes the people whose waistlines I can see...if a shirt is covering the waistline, it's fine).

7.  When there are re-runs on of my favorite shows during the winter.

8.  Did I mention vacuuming?

9.  Running in 60 km/h winds.

10.  Students who make it their class goal to try and piss me off.

11.  Cars that drive 60 km/h on our crescent.  Next time, I may just throw my gardening tool at them.

12.  When I hop in the car and it doesn't start.

13.  Teenage girls wearing clothes that show way too much skin.  Short shorts only look good on Daisy Duke and boobs are only for the red carpet, not my classroom.

That list is long and I could go on, but Hugh is home and needs to work on his class.  Maybe I should try and make a list of loves next time!


  1. 14. People who drive slow in the fast lane.

  2. When people use the wrong "there" (#7)

  3. 15. People who drive slowly in the left lane on circle.

  4. Too bad you didn't leave a name, Anonymous, then I could thank you personally. I dislike that as well! Brutal! It has been fixed.

    Deena...that is exactly what Hugh said when I read the list!

  5. I've never understood the "don't let them say hate" thing. So I blogged about it.

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…


All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…
