NaBloPoMo 2017: Day 20 – Let go

We are a sad household today. Peter came home from work today and he won’t be going back tomorrow or any day after that. He was let go from his job and I honestly can’t believe it. I am still in shock. I am angry and upset that they would do this now, right before Christmas. I honestly don’t know what to do. I can’t even imagine what Peter is going through. As he is the bread winner of our family, I don’t know what we are going to do for money. Thank goodness, we have some savings, but we really don’t want to blow through that. Plus, we are leaving for our Disney vacation in two weeks. What horrible timing for this horrible thing to happen.

I am already back to work once a week, but that can’t keep us going. As my maternity leave is up in 5 days, I called my boss today and asked if he could give me any more shifts. I am available for anything I can get. I hate that it has to be this way, but we don’t really have a choice. We have bills to pay and children to support. This sure will be an adjustment and I hope it doesn’t last too long.

Peter is going on the job hunt tomorrow, but who knows how long it will take for him to find something new. I hate being put into this situation. Life just got a whole lot harder.

I am so lost right now.

NaBloPoMo 2017: Day 19 – Good day

We had family come into town yesterday to stay with us for the week and we are having such an awesome time so far. We aren’t doing anything too crazy, but instead we are taking it easy and enjoying each other’s company. We went to the farmer’s market yesterday and bought (too many) macarons and mini pies for supper. They were all so delicious. If you are ever visiting Calgary, check out Simple Simon’s Pies at the market – SO GOOD!

Today we lazed around the house and then took advantage of the nice weather and went for a little walk. Everyone came over for supper and we all enjoyed Greek Pita Wraps and ice cream for dessert. The pita wraps were so yummy and I will definitely be writing up the recipe for them!

I love nice simple days where everyone is happy and enjoys the day. Today was one of those 😀

NaBloPoMo 2017: Day 18 – Disney On Ice

Mickey Mouse - Disney On Ice: Follow Your Heart

We went to Disney On Ice yesterday. It was a lot of fun. Despite Ezri being sick and pretty miserable for most of the day, she did enjoy the time we spent at the show. She loved seeing all her favourite characters skating around. She clapped a lot and waved at everyone she could. We had amazing seats right next to the ice. We couldn’t have asked for better.

Jadzia even enjoyed the show. She sat in the car seat for the first half and all my Mom and I could see were her little feet kicking like mad. For the second half of the show, we held her and all she wanted to do was dance. So cute! She loved the music and lights and colours. It was great fun for all ages. I will definitely bring the kids agin.

My Mom bought Ezri a little Ariel toy and I bought her a souvenir cup with lemonade. Both were ridiculously priced of course, but it’s not every day we go to something like that. Maybe next time, I’d Ezri is feeling better, she can have a sno-cone! I know she would love it!

The show was very lively and they had so many characters appear. Both kids were practically MESMERIZED. It was so awesome to see them so interested. It was hard to get great pictures and they were constantly moving, but I managed a few. Here are some highlights.
