Not actually a tard.

About Leah



I am a southern Albertan stay at home mom of two small kidlets Vivian 4, and Alex 2. I have been married for just about 7 years, (not long enough) to my husband Glenn. I love our life, I love our home, and our family. I have the most fantastic group of friends, we all have children about the same age but aside from that I have a connection with them that makes me feel whole. (Of course I am whole as in I’ve got all my bits and pieces, but what is so special is that with two small children I get to feel like and adult).

To see my fantastic family montage click on Growing Together under the Blogroll header, then click play and don’t forget to have the volume on. Enjoy!




  • I Love
  • My husband (who I love the best and rocks because I forgot to put him on my list and I did not realize it for two weeks, ooop’s).
  • My mom
  • My dad who’s in heaven but sometimes also on my fireplace. My brothers and I pass him around we kinda share him. (Yes, I know it’s sort of strange but it works for us).
  • My step-dad
  • My brothers
  • All of my in-laws
  • My friends
  • Children laughing and playing on a hot summer night
  • The sound of lawnmowers.
  • Dancing
  • Swimming
  • I like
  • A clean house
  • A clean car
  • Short hair on boys
  • Lush grass ( that’s the stuff we call a lawn)
  • Little girls in braids and Sunday dresses
  • Hard working men
  • Play dates
  • The smell of Jiffy markers
  • The smell of gasoline (Don’t get all freaky now and think I need AADAC, it just means I like to colour and pump my own gas).
  • Indian food
  • Sushi
  • I dislike
  • Mean/negative people
  • Laziness
  • Scary movies (these I use to love but since I’ve had kids I can’t do it any more)

    Hi Leah,

    Thanks for you comment on my blog. It is always nice to meet a fellow blogger! I am also going to return the favour you did me and add you to my blogroll as well. Maybe sometime we will me in the ‘real’ world! 🙂

    Got your postcards and they always make my day. I leave them out on the breakfast table for a day or two just to brag about getting mail from home. Life here is pretty darn nice, the days are full of interesting events and we are constantly meeting new people and learning more and more about renewable energy.

    Michelle is in Spain right now with her girlfriend and having a great time. Her girlfriend was going through a rough time and so Michelle suggested that they travel through southern Spain for a week or so.

    Michelle and I are looking forward to seeing you guys again and we are hopping that we can fit in a visit before we head off on our second half of our travels. If you guys are game and there is enough snow, perhaps we should go tobogganing?

    Alex, you would love it here! There are so many trains here that you would run out of names for them. Michelle and I use the train system all of the time and it is one of the most relaxing forms of travel out there. No road rage, comfortable seats and great scenery. The trains are quick, especially the ones in Germany which travel upwards of 250 km/hr. There is a new train being installed in Munich which will use a magnalev system which is supposed to travel in between 300 and 400 km/hr.

    Vivian, you would also like Europe very much. As we all know you are a princess and every princess needs a castle or palace. There are so many castles here it is impossible to count them all. Back in the middle ages princesses did not live in houses, they lived in castles and palaces. They are very beautiful and when you get a little older you should come to Europe to see them.

    Glen, I saw a sweet radio the other day at a second hand shop and my first instinct was to buy it and send it home. But two things instantly came to mind.
    1.) The thing must have been made of lead because it weighed a ton and the shipping cost would have been far to expensive.
    2.) After only having got to know all of you so recently I did not want to get into Leah’s bad books. 
    I will keep my eyes out for some smaller ones that will fit into a my bag. I was going to say that it can be our little secret but I guess that won’t work as Leah is going to read this first.

    I hope that all is well back home and I am looking forward to catching up with all of you soon!
