Monday Musings

Posted on


Today has me musing:

  • I hate April.  No really, because the rain that brings the flowers has been all kinds of wet, snow, rain, snow and rain combos.  This rain makes me hurt LOTS more and it also has turned my back yard into a mud pit.  
  • It marks a week since my mommy moved out and in with my gram.  Gram just turned 92 so she needs my mom more than me right now.  My mom originally moved in in 2001 until she found a new place and then six days later I had shoulder surgery.  She never moved out.  She was afraid we wouldn’ let her come back after, but we will.  Don’t worry momma you’re always welcome.
  • I think I like this Zagg Rugged Keyboard case that I ordered from Amazon. I picked it because it could be used four ways, it had lots of reviews and the word “rugged” sold me.  Solid it is and for me the eternal klutz I’m happy to have a cheaper option to have to not buy a new laptop.  I am still getting used to it.  The keyboard itself should stay charged for two years.  I put it on my iPad and my husband wants one.  I went onto Amazon and it’s now $89.99 and I paid $95. His birthday is next month and I told the kidlets to buy him one only I forgot to remove him from our private conversation.  Oops.

  • I have only two doctor appointments this week but next week is four I think? Those are written down on the calendar on the fridge, my planner, my phone and not my foggy brain.  
  • I completed my last product review yesterday for the Oz Naturals Super Youth Retinol Moisterizer.  
  • If I put links in my posts I don’t get paid for them, it’s because I want you to see what I’m talking about.  
  • I’m going to be working on a page that explains what happens when I get products to try.  I had the page all set up on my laptop that I believe is completely dead.  Cat, one of my 2nd daughters is going to give it to her brother to look at for me.  I bought it in 2006 and other than needing a new keyboard after a tea incident it was a good computer that had to be plugged in all the time.
  • My pupalups are sleeping in every day and were only up because I woke up early.  Keely is hating the rain, she’s a Labrador that hates water, being wet but she loves snow.  I don’t get her.

My precious

  • I was able to get this awesome Stella McCartney x Adidas black bag from a subscription box I subscribed to.  The box is $150 or quarter and the bag was for their inaugural box.  Sadly I’m going to have to adjust my sizes because the shoes were about half a size too big, the sports bra and capris were HUGE but the packable jacket is my favourite colour and it’s so light weight!
  • I was able to swap the shoes and then the pants and top to two awesome swappers and I’m getting two 1951 clutches and a pashmina in white.
  • Today we are going to Costco basically as a family.  The minions oh I mean kidlets are both going with us because we buy the food and they can shlep it to the car and into the house and then where it needs to be put away.  Even when I go without them with a list I forget something and someone is ticked.  So problems solved you all go with us.  
  • Did I mention it’s Dreary?
  • Outlander came back on last night for season two and it was awesome and that’s just not me being a fangirl but send me back in time.  I still can’t believe my Great x? Grandparents made the journey over with four kidlets and had one on the ship.  That Gr. Grandparent’s brother went with his wife to Australia. They were from Glennelg, Scotland which is near Inverness.  
  • I just received an email that I’ve been accepted into a campaign from the Chronic Illness Bloggers Network.  So excited to try this out.  You’ll find out in May what it is.  Through the Chronic Illness Bloggers I will be supplying a prize for World Fibromyalgia Day which is May 12th.  If you have a chronic illness and want to join then send in your application on the CIB page.  

So what are you musing about on this dreary Monday Morning?

  • I’m sure your hubby will still be happy about the gift:p April over here has actually been less rain. It rained more in the beginning months of the year than it has during this month. But our weather is just weird overall. We get torrential rain during the summer months when everyone is enjoying the bright sun. Anyways…the bag does look very precious lol

  • Thank you for visiting me at mini2z ... Journey with me and I hope to see you often xx
