Weekly Get To Know Me (Oct 28)

Barachois, Quebec

For this weeks Weekly Get To Know Me, I decided to just write a post instead of doing a Q&A. The last two weeks we were on vacation and came home Sunday. We actually left our hometown on Saturday drove 5 hours, slept overnight at a motel and finished the drive the next day which was another 5-6 hours. The drive itself was good, and we arrived back home to really warm weather. It was back to work on Monday, and I've been struggling all week. I feel like I'm on the verge of being sick, and I'm just overtired and need to rest. I'm hoping to rest up this weekend and have a better week next week.

My vacation was really nice but I didn't get to do as much blogging or reading as I had intended. I was a little disappointed but I enjoyed time away. I decided to just spend the time with my son and husband. When Caleb napped, I napped too. Did I mention he still wakes up every single night and he's about to be 4 in December? Yes, he's always been a restless sleep.

I did start reading a book this week, commuting to work is when I usually read. I'm reading Fallen Heir the 4th book in the Royal's Series by Erin Watt. I really enjoyed the previous 3 books and this was has been holding my attention. When it comes to reading, I really need easy, entertaining reads that keep my attention. If it doesn't keep my attention, I struggle to pick it up.

I'm excited for Halloween this week. I was never a Halloween person, but celebrating with Caleb really makes the holidays so much more fun. His enthusiasm and excitement is so catching. He's going as a Power Ranger and I'm hoping for warm weather. Living in Canada, it was 20 degrees Celsius on Monday, and 6 feels like 2 on Friday. I'm wishing you all a great weekend, and will look forward to your upcoming posts this week.


  1. Oh that sounds like such cold weather - hope that the forecast improves and you get some nice weather for trick or treating! :) We don't do Halloween here in Australia really but it's fun to see the costumes people wear that they share online! :)

    It's great you had a good holiday, hopefully you're feeling better today too and you're having a lovely weekend.

  3. I think that sometimes it’s just so good to no do anything - no blogging, no reading, no anything! I’m a restless sleeper just like your son, and I rarely ever sleep through the night which sucks, and I’m 20..

    I hope you and your family have a fabulous Halloween!

  6. Loved this post. I feel for you hun...my eldest has been bad with sleep since she was born and still fights me every single night not to go to sleep. She just turned 6 :( I've got it under control but some nights I just wish she would just go up to bed without needing me to sit with her lol! xxx

  7. Glad you enjoyed your time away! Lovely post

  8. I hope you feel better soon. We often need a vacation from our vacation. HaHaHa So glad you didn't blog while on vacation. It should be time spent with your family. I'm doing Halloween posts right now. So I think catching up with my blog posts will be fun.

  9. Glad to hear you had a nice break! Rest up this week! xx


  10. It's great that you were able to spend some time with your family while you're away. We've just had half-term over here and I've absolutely loved having my daughter around for the week. I miss her now she's back at school but we're going Hallowe'en trick or treating tonight - love the sound of Caleb's costume, Flora's going as a skeleton, haha!
