TGIF v.48

A high of the week was Norah actually enjoying swimming lessons on Tuesday! While she likes being in the water, she wasn’t interested in actually listening during her lessons. I’ve discovered that the less time we have to wait in the pool before lessons start, the less restless she gets during lessons and she’s more likely to participate.

A low of the week was finding out I got a less than stellar mark on a final exam. I’ll be honest and say that I wasn’t expecting to pass with flying colours, but it was a good reality check. Also, being allowed to do open book tests during a course but not being allowed to have one for the final is BRUTAL. Lesson learned? Always study as if you were going to do a closed book, regardless!

An internet find I loved was this guide by on how to choose the right office chair for you. I may not work in an office setting at the moment, but one day I hope to get back to work and I know from experience how the wrong chair can make a day drag on. Luckily, the fine folks at have put the top-selling office chairs to the test and have chosen the top 3 based on ergonomics and what was most comfortable. Definitely check out their guide if you’re ever in the market for a great chair.

The best money I spent was on a Red Flag Thursday deal on a SodaStream for Kyle and I. We’ve been wanting to get one for a while, so we figured to snag one while it was on sale. (Also, how did sale “days” like Black Friday get all these ridiculously-named bonus days? Cyber Monday? Small Business Tuesday? Pffffft.)

My favourite Isla and/or Norah moment was Norah just being, well. Norah:


A song that has been stuck in my head is a little ditty called “Nowhere to be Found” by a (BC) local artist named Kazz. Fun fact: The dude singing backup is a friend of mine from ball, so definitely give it a listen!

My meals of the week were fried chicken with mashed potatoes and green beans, mild Italian sausages with carrots and pasta, pork tenderloin with mashed potatoes and baked zucchini, spaghetti, roast beef, and Actifry chicken wings.

My plans for the weekend are watching the Santa Clause parade Saturday morning, Christmas shopping Sunday, and relaxing on Sunday!

Have you started Christmas shopping?
