Completed | List3 | #19 of 101 Things To Do In 1001 Days | iPhone For My Daugher

Monday, June 26th, 2017


Recently, I picked up an iPhone for my Daughter which was long overdue.  With that the magical wifi suddenly appeared at home where they live and opened up the iron curtain.  This allows her to be free with communication between her friends and her and also more importantly with them for me.  I also have my older iPhone to my son since his iPod magically disappeared for many weeks after he was able to connect it to wifi at home.  It magically reappeared.  Anyways… he has my old iPhone to log into wifi at home to message me which has been sweet.

I broke out my Daughter from school one day and we went to the mall to pick up her phone and set it up and download the apps she wants and we hit “bucks” to get a fancy whipped cream drink.


Completed | List3 | #33 of 101 Things To Do In 1001 Days | Tat

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017


I will get my first tattoo.  I know what I’m going to get.  I should have gotten it 22 months ago.

First one will go between my elbow and my wrist

new collage2

Above is my idea for one.

I thought I should write it out once and how I write it for the first time should be my first tattoo.  I’m silly that way.

I’ve written it out on my arm to get the hang of hit with my mind.  It’s simply the word… “enough” meaning… “enough is enough” with many things in my life.  I’ll snap some pictures when it’s happening and I’ll shoot some video to document it.  It’s a little simple one but I think having it as a daily reminder will be good.

enough is enough ( fitness, heath, nutrition, being bullied by my ex, living tiny, traveling )  see makes sense to me.  a daily reminder.

I will post some photos and video soon…

Completed | List3 | #29 of 101 | Purchase GoPro For My Daughter

Friday, December 23rd, 2016


Two years ago… I gave my Daughter my “action camera” which was a GoPro knock off that I picked up for 100 bones at Black’s Camera.  This Christmas… I picked up a Hero3 for Chantal to help her with her filmmaking.  That little action camera was passed down to Noah.  Hopefully they can shoot some creative footage and this March I’m going to get her a little laptop to help store and edit the footage.

List3 | #75 of 101 Things in 1001 Days | Try To Ski On The Water + Not Be Dragged

Sunday, July 31st, 2016


gerund or present participle: water-skiing
  1. skim the surface of water on waterskis.

In my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days… one of the things I’ve always wanted to do is to try to skim on the top of the water and not be dragged like a ball of skin half under the water.  While in Nova Scotia… I was at Kevin’s and they had a boat and he had some new ski’s that he wanted to try out.  He asked me if I wanted to try and I jumped at the chance.

I’m dying to try it again.  I could not get out of the water and I had 4 or 5 attempts.  So hard.  My mind thinks what would have happened if I got up on the water.  I was pretty good at sitting in the tube 😉

You can view my OSE video for July that covers the trip and our dinner at Kevin’s and playing with the boat.


Chantal also gave it a shot and her hands were not strong to hold the bar to pull herself out of the water.  I thought she would have the best shot from the Deveau’s.  Kevin ripped it up and went for a while and spilled twice.
