Love told in post-it notes

October 16th, 2010 by Rose DesRochers · 11 Comments

Post- It Notes Prank

You’d be surprised what you can do with 50 pink post-it notes. My son left Friday for a christian conference in Toronto. We were unable to drop him off at the church as hubby had a doctors appointment. We left the house before he did and I guess he really wanted to let us know that he loved us.

We came home from the doctors appointment to post-it notes posted around the house.

Unfortunately, I can’t share the picture of my house with you all as hubby and I removed all the post-it notes before I thought to snap photos.

I did get these shots. (more)…

Shih Tzu Pups Delivered

October 11th, 2010 by Rose DesRochers · 16 Comments

Our Shih Tzu Mya just gave birth on October 9th/ 10th to six lovable and cute puppies, four boys and two girls.

Breeding is not for the faint-hearted that is for sure. Mya was wonderful throughout the ordeal. Her hard labor began about 9:30.

Complications during whelping

Within minutes, at 9:54 she delivered her first puppy, a little girl who weighed 4.5 ounces. The pup was delivered in a breech position. The head was stuck. Once hubby assisted in getting the puppy out, she wasn’t breathing. Hubby rubbed, gave cpr, aspirated the throat and nose. We let Mya lick her. (more)…

Tween Halloween Costumes too Sexy

October 6th, 2010 by Rose DesRochers · 22 Comments

Are Halloween costumes for kids too sexy?

Halloween is just around the corner. If you are a parent of a tween or teen-age girl, you may have noticed the disturbing trend in Halloween costumes now on the market. ‘Sexy’, rather than ‘scary’ or ‘cute’ has become the look in Halloween attire for females.

How the times have changed. When I as a tween there were two types of costumes: Cute or scary. Sexy was not among the choices.

What happen to modest Halloween costumes?

Tween – Teen Halloween Costume Hall of Shame

Since when does a provocative Goldi-locks costume fit the category of spooky, or even cute? Would you allow your nine-old daughter to leave the house dressed like this for Halloween? (more)…

Google is Down

Google Suffers Outage

I never thought I would see the day, but early this am Google appeared to be down in some parts of the world.

Rose from adventuresinsavings.com sent a tweet just before midnight stating she was unable to access blogger.com or her blog that’s on blogger.

After several tries and a search on Twitter she learned that Google was down- for some users.

There had been no confirmation from Google them-self, but several users stated that they were unable to use Google services.

Using Google’s Realtime Twitter search you could see multiple users Tweeting Google was down. (more)…

My Borderline daughter

October 4th, 2010 by Rose DesRochers · 12 Comments

I spent another night/ early morning in the emergency room. My daughter had just taken an overdose of antibiotics.

Reason: It was another case of the “I hate you, don’t leave me” that A.J. Mahari refers to as the borderline dance in her post The Borderline Dance –
“I-Hate-You, Don’t-Leave-Me.”

She hates her b/f one minute, then loves him the next. When he goes to leave her she overdoses on pills to get a dramatic response from him. Her self injury comes from her deep emotional need to feel validated. (more)…
