    I have a pork roast in the oven on a slow cook, I stocked up in November and apparently I shouldn't have as the kids both hate pork roast.....can't win for trying, however, they're quite capable of fixing themselves something given their ages 13 & 16. That's the new rule which I am enforcing this year

    Dh is working his way up to painting Jaden's (ds1) door and window trim....I'm going forward with the attitude that I'll do as much as I can myself (need to repaint the upstairs doors), I'm hoping to get this done in January and go from their.

    Wishing everyone a great day, going to work on my January to do list for myself and get motivated as things progress.
    @sweet sparrow great news about your LO not needing supplements and a little more sleep for you
    @Angela273 hope you feel better soon
    @Granger wishing you a speedy recovery as well

    Wishing everyone a great day

    Would your kids eat pulled pork on a bun? That's what I use pork roasts for.

    Thanks all for your suggestions regarding support in the shower for my elderly in laws. I'll go to a Home Care support place for suggestions. I really don't want to drill into the tile. We were thinking of the suction type grip handle but our tile has a wee bit of texture so I would think the suction wouldn't hold.

    For those of us with picky eaters-and I know there are a few of us-I suggest we trade the kids around as maybe they will all be polite and eat it at someone else's house. Lol.

    Mom of 5 Boys-if you can't rent a bath seat you might be able to pick one up cheaply on Kjiji.

    I've come to the conclusion over the years that you can't please everyone I just find it frustrating.

    Everyone loves gravy and I make homemade but the boys don't like roasts, it's actually more of a texture issue.

    We've made pulled pork over the last year and well again you can't please everyone.

    I've made kabobs as well BUT it really depends on the type of roast. The ones which I stocked up on have a big bone and the meat is not easily handled raw, it's almost rubbery if that makes sense.

    They will eat pork tenderloin but I has such a different texture than this roast and honestly the tenderloin is mainly not cooked as a roast.


    Oh well.....moving on......I will be cooking a roast about every 2 to 3 weeks so I won't worry about it going forward as I know they don't like them.

    5 more sleeps until back to work/school.....yippee.....but who's counting (haha).

    My folks left this afternoon for 1 month in Arizona.


    Wishing everyone a great evening.

    Catholic schools last day was Dec. 21.

    School started Sept. 1

    The province recently changed the way they deal with the school year - used to be 197 school days, now it's a mandatory 960 hours of instruction.

    My brother is a principal in Northern AB - they are off until next week as well.

    It's Thursday! Wow. Week is going by fast. DS has hockey in an hour so at least that gets him out of the house.
    We are still in a blizzard today. So I don't want him roaming the neighbourhood.

Completing the test made my body go on overload. I had to be taken home to have a long nap. I constantly have various amounts of sinus congestion.

    I could call our medical coverage and see what coverage we might have for mouth guards. I've considered it in the past. Dh says that I don't grind my teeth very often at night, but I used to do it years ago while falling to sleep. I do catch myself clenching my jaw sometimes during the day. I try to consciously relax it and stretch.
    My mouth guard really helps as I have neck problems and TMJ. I notice a big difference when I don't wear it....you can now get one for either your upper or lower teeth. I too am allergic to just about everything under sun as per an allergy test. A good allergist doctor can recommend something safe to use during nursing. I find nasal rinsing really helps with allergies and I have an air cleaner in the bedroom and a humidifier in my living room (as dry air aggravates my sinuses).

    Check out the Red Cross - they rent bath chairs I think.
