Day 3 of 25 Songs in 25 Days.

Day 3:

A song that reminds you of one/both your parents.


My parent’s loved music when I was growing up and my mom still has the radio or cd player going on in whatever room she is in.

I distinctly remember my dad playing this song but it wasn’t this version or even the original version by Neil Young. All I remember is is that it was a female singer and the cover of the vinyl album was in the old fashioned blue pattern of a old plate.

So I picked a good ‘ol Canadian version sung by a chick.


Now if any of you out there know my mum, you know that she absolutely loves Enrique Iglesias!

Yep, picture a 60ish woman with her rum and coke, rocking out to this latin cutie as she is baking up some home made bread.

Hahaha sorry for the blindness.


Truth be told this little diddy sum’s up good ‘ol mum and pop to the tee!

Have a good day all, and see you tomorrow!




5 things I have learned since I left.

  1. I have not laughed entirely  enough in the last 9 months.
  2. My kids really are truly my rock and have inherited there sense of humour from their mom.
  3. I’m a really smart girl.
  4. I can do this.
  5. I need to follow my gut and instincts in the future.


# 5 is the most important out of all of them. It’s been 5 days  and I haven’t heard one word from the ex, I knew that this was going to happen. But it still hurts a bit and it hurts my self esteem a bit as well. I mean, I did everything for this person, I did his laundry, made dinner, baked, hand washed the dishes, cleaned his house and his washroom,money, gave him encouragement,sexual relations,  love and my heart.

Most men would fight to keep a good woman like me,,,isn’t that what a man wants?

I guess I’m a glutton for punishment because I did something I shouldn’t have done today, I checked the dating website that we met on,,and I don’t know why I was so surprised to see him back on there spreading all his narcissistic ego bull crap (and the prick even used the pics I took of him,,,,how pathetic).

Sure,,,it hurt the old ego but, it also given me strength to follow my instincts and to move on eventually. I won’t be looking for a relationship any time soon,,,but I will still have the hope of one day meeting someone who will value all that I have to offer.

I have learned to not rush into a relationship, to take it very slow and perhaps be over cautious if he is the right man he will understand how I have been hurt in the past.
