Swiss Chalet

After a long day in Toronto, we decided to try to eat something Canadian so we went to the Swiss Chalet. We went to a Swiss Chalet that also was attached to a Harvey's. Aron was screaming and crying as usual and Jonny was in a general bad mood after our long day in Toronto so we chose the Swiss Chalet take out. We ordered a family meal with a whole Rotisserie Chicken with steamed vegetables, salad, mashed potatoes and poutine. While waiting for our food I saw a lady for the first time eating poutine. I actually was beginning to believe it was on the menu to freak out American tourists!

So we took the food back to our motel, a really nice Hampton Inn in Mississauga. The picture above is of downtown Mississauga, a city right next to Toronto. I love to write Mississauga because it is like Mississippi my favorite southern word to write!  We ate our food in the hotel lobby while at the same time trying to keep Aron quiet. I couldn't figure out the difference among the gravies- the Chalet sauce, the poutine gravy and the mashed potatoes gravy. So I mixed the gravies on the poutine. The result was nasty though the cheese curds were still awesome. I wish I knew where to buy cheese curds! The chicken was very good! I loved the seasoning that is supposed to be a Swiss seasoning. The mashed potatoes were good with at least one of the gravies. I think Swiss Chalet should label the gravies! After that fattening meal we went back up to our room and put the kids to bed early!

Overprotective Mom's Guide to Pop Music this Week

I have 2 teens and so I try to keep up with what is going on in music. I want to know what my kids are listening to. I also need to be aware of what songs are playing on the radio while my kids are in the van. I listened to the Top Ten pop songs on the Billboard chart and wrote down my impressions of the songs.

My son asked me one afternoon, "Mom, why is Ariana Grande walking side to side?' I usually don't listen to the words and focus on the beat and melody so I was surprised that he caught what the lyrics were. The song he is referring to is "Side to Side" by Ariana Grande featuring Nicki Minaj. I've heard that song around 200 times over the last couple of months. I just figured she was dancing with some guy and they were swaying side to side like you do at church dances. Well, I found out what it really means, prompted by my son's question. She's had sex with a guy all day and all night so she's so sore she walks side to side. (Vomit) Now I ch…

STUFF Clogging My Mind

I haven't blogged in a while. I never made it big in blogging and I never found an audience. I gave up and instead used Twitter as a way to express myself. I primarily used Twitter for about four years and even had my own little community. I had a few major retweets but was never famous or anything. I kept myself anonymous because I didn't want attention. I just wanted to express my feelings. A month ago I quit and it was one of the best decisions I've made.

It was popular last year to say that 2016 was the worst year ever! It was a very strange year for me! I went through many challenges, new baby, c section, deployment, teenagers, a move, and ended the year losing my grandfather, I went into a deep depression and realized that I was spending sometimes 6-8 hours arguing with people on Twitter. I knew that couldn't help my depressed mood so I decided one day to quit. By day three I felt like a new person. I had more energy and I no longer felt hopeless. Instead of wast…

Writer's Block

I usually have great ideas to write about especially if I am not under any pressure. Writer's block is horrible. I've had it at times, especially when I am busy or distracted. It's rare that it happens to me. 
What if I finally published a novel? It became popular and fans wanted a sequel. My anxiety would kick in like a huge block of ice, blocking my flow. What if I disappoint my fans? What if I can't repeat my previous success? Doubt will eventually lead to writer's block. Years go by and I still haven't published anything. Everyday I open up my computer and stare at a blank screen. I distract myself by going to Reddit or Twitter and discuss things like feminism in Star Wars and the worst sunburn I've ever had. 
One day I decide that I need to take my writing seriously. I put on some headphones and play white noise to try to clear my head while walking through a city park. The static masks the sounds of life and I am able to sit on a bench and clear my mi…
