It’s been so long … I forgot how to post.

I have to think about this…. soooo that tells me it has been far, far to long.

I started making Bento lunches for my son this year.  Part of my ambitious plan to make lunch everyday for the entire school year. lol.  It all began with this one.  I post them each day – mostly to keep me honest. 🙂

Since some people refuse to join FB (and I’m sure that’s a good thing) I’ll be posting these here too.

Cop out?  Maybe.  But I have to start somewhere…

Science Centre IMAX

We almost didn’t make it to an advance screening of “The Alps“this morning.  Entirely my fault, I’m just not a morning person.

I expected to enjoy this movie, instead I loved it. 

The imagery is breathtaking, reminding me of what an amazing world we live in.

 If I recall a line from the movie correctly.  ‘The Alps have always attracted strong people”.  I thought to myself  ‘Slightly crazy too’.  In a good way though.

I can skydive, climb a mountain never!  I felt delicious terror just watching this film.  This is an experience I would never had except for another person’s obsession with climbing the North Face of the Eiger. 

I highly recommend that you see this film.  It is awe inspiring.

I’ll be getting an email with a family & friends discount coupon in the next few days.  If you’re interested, leave a comment or email me.

Honesty? Huh.

I’m catching up on the blogs I read.  So I strolled over to Marissa’s and here lurked ten honest tidbits.

Hmmm.   Unlike Marissa I experienced no issue with what to write.  Just exactly how honest should I be? 

Black and white?  Room for shades of grey?  Is grey still the truth?  Brutally?  Painfully?  Serious?   Silly?

You decide.

1. I would give my own life for my son. Unreservedly.

2. I went to a very dark, dark place in the latter part of 2008. I’ve no desire to go back.

3. I compulsively collect journal after journal.  I’ve not been able to truly, freely and honestly write in a journal for almost 20 years.  If I did, it was destroyed.  Yet, I still keep buying them.

4.  I unabashedly love the song ‘Barbie Girl‘  by Aqua.  Cringe if you will.  I don’t care.

5. I am scared to send my secret(s) to Post Secret. What if you recognize me?

6. I didn’t call my own Mother for her final Mother’s Day.  How’s that for evil?

7. I have been a terrible friend in 2008.

8. The vivid, bright and best points of 2008 were always with my friends.  Ironic?

9.  I always colour in the lines.

10.  I made a bucket list.  I’ll share if you will.

12.  2008 was the first birthday in 6 years that I couldn’t care less.

13.  I couldn’t wait to kick 2008’s ass to the curb.

I will tag people.  You go Martha,  June, Sandy, Carmi, Susan, Ronna, Sharon
