Getting Through Final Exams

I’ve survived the first week of exams! Yay! Ooops I mean, my daughter has survived her first week of exams! Semester one is over; which means there’s a couple week interval before second semester begins, and final exams have to be squeezed in. New courses will begin soon enough, but for now all that’s on the brain is “passing finals”.

I remember those days; albeit many years ago, like they were last week. Feeling unsure of oneself was the norm during those five long high school years. At least it felt like five long years! The reality is, five years go by far too quickly. Nowadays, high school is only four years long! Four years go by even more quickly.

At the end of my five years, I really wasn’t all that sure of what I wanted to become. I can only imagine that it’s that much more difficult to figure out what to become in a shorter time. This is exactly why I try to tell my daughter not to fret. High school is merely a stepping stone into adulthood, and anything that is required in life can always be achieved later (if not done in the younger years). What’s important is to enjoy getting through high school; this time will never return.

I don’t mean that one should ignore duty, or responsibility. Au contraire! I tell my daughter to try her best, and if it’s still not enough then she shouldn’t be too worried about it because life is long and will provide her many opportunities in the future. For example, if her grades aren’t good enough to be accepted into University (that’s if this is where she wants to go) then she can always apply as a mature adult. Life holds many options and many opportunities.

@Downy Wants You to #RipYourClothesOn!” – #PGMom LIMITED Giveaway CAN 20/02

I must join the #RipYourClothesOn movement because I simply LOVE the Downy scent!

You should know, this winter, Downy is challenging Canadians to share their favourite fashion looks that make them want to rip their clothes on. How? Sprinkle a little Downy Unstopables into a load of laundry and your clothes will smell so fresh that you’ll just have to cuddle up with your loved ones! Add Downy Infusions fabric softener to leave your clothes feeling extra soft with an added boost of irresistible scent.

Now that the holidays are over, the snow and cold weather that comes with the winter season begins to feel less festive and more bone chilling.  Arguably, the best feeling is being able to come in from the cold and change into the warmest,coziest outfit in the closet.  And wouldn’t it be nice to still feel sexy and inviting in that chosen outfit?

Now, as a PGMom, I get to do the same thing!  I received a $25 Joe Fresh gift card to get an item that would add to my look and; most importantly, allow me to feel super cozy and compfy.

2014-6-7_10-8-59

I have no problem in showing you the item that I selected … a yoga top! Don’t you love my feable attempts at being healthy?  Don’t you worry, I’ll get there!

IMG_0643

I love using  Downy Unstopables & Downy Infusions in my laundry; it makes everything smell fantastic.  The $25 Joe Fresh gift card certainly came in handy!  While I shopped at my local Loblaw store (you can choose to visit participating Real Canadian Superstore and Loblaw banner stores), I picked up several grocery items.  Don’t you love being able to cross off several ‘to do’ items off your list?!  P.S. you can pick up all your favourite Downy products at Real Canadian Superstore and Loblaw banner stores across Canada.

PRIZE:   a lucky winner will receive a bundle valued at $45* with Downy UnstopablesDowny Infusions & a $25 Joe Fresh gift card as well!

Discreet Indeed with @Always #PGMom

It’s not a surprise that I already use Always.  Truth be told, I’ve been a loyal Always brand user for as long as I can remember!

Did you read my last post?  “Have You Tried Discreet?

Always incontinence underwear provides their most absorbent bladder protection so that you can be confident. Because you shouldn’t constantly worry about your sensitive bladder.

IMG_0532

  • Soft Dual LeakGuards™ help contain bladder leaks
  • Advanced Triple Layer Core helps pull, trap, and lock away bladder leaks
  • Exclusive OdorLock™ technology neutralizes urine odors
  • Soft cotton-like waistband for incredible wearing comfort
  • Feminine design with purple waistband indicating back

20150117_155652

Now, since my mom was placed into a long-term care facility, I’ve been a little pre-occupied with my mom’s care.  Her Alzheimer’s has been rapidly progressing.  One of things that has happended is her incontinence … that means she has to wear diapers.  My mom’s weight has also been an issue; she’s lost alot of weight so nothing really fits properly.  When I received a package of Always Discreet Bladder Protection Underwear (size S/M) to try, I knew it wasn’t the right fit for me BUT it would be the perfect fit for my mom!  The only concern I had was if Always Discreet would have enough protection.  In other words, would it absorb leaks and odours?  And would they fit?  Look how they stretch!  I don’t think fit will be an issue.

20150117_155602

The test would be easy enough:  take the package to my mom, and remind the nurses to use them on my mom, and then report back.

When I took the package to my mom, and stayed for a visit I noticed that she had an “accident”.  Her skirt had a huge wet spot so I called the nurse in to help.  It was the perfect moment to pull out an Always Discreet Underwear.  My mom has been struggling with the whole diaper-thing.  She insists on wearing underwear but she needs diapers.  When my mom came out of the washroom with the nurse, both had a smile on their face!  My mom was so happy that her ‘underwear’ was on!  It was an adorable moment; my mom even showed off her figure.

20150119_161405

Actually, I couldn’t even tell that she had them on.  Her underwear area didn’t look bulky at all.  Best of all, my mom had a smile ear to ear!

I followed up … the nurses have confirmed that Always Discreet is a HUGE success.  My mom has been happier, and so am I.  An enormous thank you goes out to Always and to P&G.

Monday Mumblings – January 19, 2015

Last week was an adventure. Aside from getting my daily call from the long-term care facility telling me about a crying fit or hysteria, this time around (on Thursday) My mother lashed out and was actually considered “violent”!

Yup; this is getting interesting! My mom must have been triggered somehow and she then threw plates, cups, and even a knife (that missed someone)! At one point she punched a nurse in the stomach.

I was called, and advised that she was transferred to a hospital. Of course, I went to see her … I stayed there the whole day. Calming down my mom wasn’t easy but I managed. It seems that her ‘moment’ was brought on by the urinary tract infection that she had. She had just started being treated for it; she had taken three doses.

What’s interesting is she couldn’t remember what she had done.
