October Monthly News

Welcome to the October edition of monthly news!
My life is chaotic at the moment.
No kids at home, and my mom has moved out.
Empty-nesting is my life, and so is downsizing.
Yup. Trying to find a place nowadays is harder than it used to be. It's either not what we like, too overpriced, or just in the worst place of the city.
The housing market sky-rocketed and mixed with rising hydro rates... I wanna scream!
But I digress. This is life. Welcome to adulting. 
So, you may see less in the next couple of months. I will still be here, but with moving and working outside the home now, it will be a little less. Maybe.
Tell me what has happened in your world lately... 
Happy Halloween, everyone!

  1. My son Anthony and I are downsizing. We're going from a 2200+ sq. ft. to a house that is a little over 700 sq. ft. I hope your move isn't very stressful.

  9. Adulting can suck, but fingers crossed everything goes smoothly for you! I loved The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel movie, but didn't realise it was a book. Glad to hear you recommend reading it!

There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline.
