+ TGIF! this work week was hell with 3 concurrent projects going on, I felt like doing this most days:
+ Like any country, Canada has its share of problems and sometimes, our government does something awesome like extending parental leave to 18 months (current is 12 months) and giving a federal budget boost to child care funding. Reading things like this makes me a proud Canadian.
There are some drawbacks to taking the full 18 month leave, such as lowered EI (same rate but amortized over a longer period) but if you can make it work with supplemental income (read: save like fuck before baby comes), then yayyyyy! 18 months off!
+ Speaking of Canada things, LOL. We Canadians are not used to seeing our military in the streets. In fact, we Canadians are not used to seeing guns at all in the streets.
+ Finished reading:
+ Started reading:
+ I can't do horror movies; not even the cheesy parody ones because even those "scary" scenes are too scary. IT was one of my favourite Stephen King novels and with this (TV movie) remake, I'm almost tempted to watch it.
+ I love this face mask; it's so hydrating.
+ I follow a "remember the 80s" page on Facebook because the 80s rule and they always post awesome things from way back. Remember this game?
+ Speaking of the 80s, I grew up on Super Mario Bros. on the original Nintendo gaming system and SMB never gets old. Super Mario Run is now available on Android!
+ For all you HP fans, look at the bday invite Kayla received from a school friend. I'm not much of a HP fan but this makes me want to go.
+ We forgo TV in favour of Readers Club. Kayla has been blowing through all of her library books and I love it. The other day, I asked if she wanted to watch some TV but she said "no, can we do Readers Club?". Music to my ears.
Just this past week and a half, she's finished Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing, Superfudge, Fudge-a-mania and The Fourteenth Goldfish. She's currently reading It's Not The End of The World and after that, James and the Giant Peach.
