(Hungover) Saturday Scroll: 01/01/2022

Happy New Years Day! Welcome to 2022. I hope you had a great night, and that you are surviving this morning. Or that you are chilling after a night in with a face mask, take out and in bed by 10 pm. I actually got a hotel room so that I could come down for … Continue reading (Hungover) Saturday Scroll: 01/01/2022

Best of 2021 – Media: Music, TV, Movies, Podcasts, Content Creators

This year feels like one of the longest years I have ever experienced (nearly as long as this blog post OMG). I saw a meme Tuesday that said that the Bernie mittens meme was only 11 months ago, and it feels like that's a lifetime ago, but also yesterday at the same time. I feel … Continue reading Best of 2021 – Media: Music, TV, Movies, Podcasts, Content Creators

Things you can do when you have a concussion

Well, firstly, it should be said that if you have a concussion you should not be reading this. I know how hard it is to completely avoid screens, we communicate with our employers, clients, friends, and family all on screens now and how can you tell people that you have a concussion or ask for … Continue reading Things you can do when you have a concussion

Saturday Scroll: 12/18/2021

When this goes live, I will hopefully be well on the road on the way home. Editing Laura: I was on the road, that's why this isn't going up until Sunday evening.

Northern Diaries: Plans for Christmas and New Years in Southern Ontario

I am so excited to be heading home and to bop around Southern Ontario for 17 days (well four of those will be driving to and from Southern Ontario). I am a bit worried that Ms. Omicron will ruin this for me, but I am keeping my vaccinated fingers and toes crossed in hope. I … Continue reading Northern Diaries: Plans for Christmas and New Years in Southern Ontario

Simple, Hand-Me-Down Decorating for Christmas

I love Christmas, I love how people decorate for it, I love the parties that are planned, the opportunities to dress up, the food, the thought put into gifts that people get, the music. Heck, I even like the Christmas Eve service with the candlelight singing of Silent Night, and I don't go to church. … Continue reading Simple, Hand-Me-Down Decorating for Christmas

Pet Safety During the Holidays

I have been very hesitant to wade into animal health related content on here. I'm not a veterinarian and I haven't worked in a vet clinic in nearly a year. However, I learned a lot in my many years of working in clinics and wanting to be a vet that I believer more pet owners … Continue reading Pet Safety During the Holidays

Spending Check In: November Review, December Plans

So like I said last month, I hoping that putting my money choices and realities out there (loosely, without super explicit details, that feels weird). And well, November was a disaster. It would have been fine if I hadn't needed to spend $1000 on winter tires, I would have pushed my budget to the limits, … Continue reading Spending Check In: November Review, December Plans

What I Read in November

I am definitely still in a bit of a reading rut. I read just one book in September, nothing in October (to the point where I had a post planned for early November about being in a reading rut, but then I read a book in a day (a snow day) and I thought I … Continue reading What I Read in November

Friday Favorites

Honestly, yesterday, Thursday, I was having a sad day. Work was really getting me down. Working in public health is getting really hard, I can't stop caring about encouraging people to get vaccinated, I can't stop patiently having conversations with people about masks and vaccines and physical distancing and mental health and coping methods and … Continue reading Friday Favorites
