So the other day Lil Man and I went for a walk to the park. Lil Man loves walking to the park, but it is a little heart attack inducing for me because he doesn't like to hold hands. He's a big boy you know, almost two and he can do it himself. However, we have gotten to a point in our walks where he will hold my hands when we cross the street or when there are large groups of people around. Other than that, it's 'no I do it," or "no! No Hands mommy!" So away we went down the street to Normandeau school.
We live in a area where we are close to two school and there are quite a few little parks all around, but I chose Normandeau because we have to cross the least amount of streets that way. So away we went with our plastic bag hunting for fun colourful leaves. Lil Man loved running along the path and picking up leaves. He didn't collect too many but he had fun!! After we had foraged enough leaves we went home.
I had seen a craft where you modge podge leaves onto a glass then you can put a candle in the glass (a tealight) and light it and it makes a neat lantern. This part of the craft isn't really that conducive to do with little children that don't necessarily follow instructions, so if I were to do this with him again, I would work on a piece of wax paper and I would do the jar alone.
At first I was putting the modge podge just on the leaves but they were not sticking that way. I decided to modge podge the glass then stick the leaves on then modge podge over the leaves to give it that glazed look. That worked much better.
It was a quick craft once Lil Man stopped "helping" me, but it was definitely fun to go out with him to collect the leaves and have a part of the afternoon out enjoying the coming fall weather.
I finally had it done, I got Breast reduction surgery!!! The pictures contained in this blog are for before and after comparisons of a medical procedure.
I'm beyond happy about it and feel absolutely amazing, now that the surgery is a week behind me.
It was a long road, but it was so well worth it. If you live in Canada, and have back problems because your breasts are abnormally large for your shape, then I fully recommend taking advantage of the government supported surgery.
I was an H-I cup with a 36 band prior to the surgery. Yes my cup sized spelt HI! I had such pain in my back from these humongous watermelons I carried around. It was stupid, but it got to the point where I'd only notice the pain at certain times or when I had a massage. I can't tell you how many massage therapist asked if I was stressed out. Nope honestly I just have big boobs.
These are some before shots of my chest, this was the morning or evening before surgery. I love that bra from The Bra Lo…
I was out for a walk the other day, listening to my playlist when Pink's F*#$ing Perfect started playing on my headset. I don't know why but I feel like this is the first time I have ever truly listened to this song. I am a HUGE Pink fan, I think she is amazing and such a wonderful role model for young women, and I when I really listened to this song, this opinion was reinforced even more.
Has that ever happened for you? You have a song that you listen to a lot and then one day you really hear the song, and the message in the song really resonates with your core beliefs? It was such an ah-ha moment on that path as I was walking and I was like wow.
So here are some of the lyrics to the song and my thoughts on those lyrics:
Pretty, pretty please, don't you ever, ever feel Like you are less than, less than f####' perfect Pretty, pretty please, if you ever, ever feel like you're nothing You're f$$$$' perfect to me
I want to tell the world about an amazing man! A man who changed lives and lived a life full of love and excitement. He was truly a genuine person and it is a shame not everyone got to meet him. But he lived a life that really encompassed the song Humble and Kind. He didn't do anything for glory or recognition, he did it because it was the right thing to do and he spread happiness like a flame.
Jeff Mullan was an east coaster through and through, he could spot another Bluenoser anywhere he went. It's like the Saskatchewan phenomena of always knowing another Flatlander when you go out but Jeff's ability to pick out Bluenosers was almost like a sixth sense. And East coast people have a special affinity for making people feel at ease in their presence, Jeff was no exception.
I could go through a litany of all the great things in Jeff's life, but I honestly only knew him for the short time he was in my soul sisters life. I sometimes think Estelle dreamed him into exis…
