My thoughts….won’t cost you a penny


Ironically, as I write this, my laptop is unplugged on a flight from Saskatoon to Calgary. This topic came to my mind as I prepare to travel to Cancun tomorrow morning with my wife. My Pastor said it well – I need to unplug and just reset myself. I’m feeling the COVID fatigue, after 18… Continue reading Unplug

My first marathon

My first marathon. I just finished my first full marathon on Sunday. 42.2km, for anyone who didn’t know. It was an experience. I’ve done two half marathons, about 5 years apart, with the latest being last year. This full is likely the most I’ve trained for a run in my life, with my running club… Continue reading My first marathon

5AC is BAC

K. I know that’s another use of a terrible acronym by a millennial. Or another shortened word (see ‘bae’ instead of ‘babe’ in my about section). But I woke up this morning at 450AM, hit the snooze button, and then rose at 455AM. I walked to the living room hearing the reassuring sound of the… Continue reading 5AC is BAC

Pat Leave

As I write this, my soon-to-be one-year-old is chirping away beside me at the kitchen table. He’s munching on some Puffs. Peach flavour, to be exact. While I sip on some tea. Earl Grey, to be exact. Quite side-note. Every notice how sometimes ‘grey’ is spelled ‘gray’. Apparently, ‘grey’ is more common in British English… Continue reading Pat Leave

Pros and Cons

We have a split in the road ahead. To the left, a $370,000 fix-er-up. To the right, a $470,000 finished home. Which way to go? Time to make a list. We’ve done this before. My wife and I sold a townhouse and moved into Calgary and we had to decide between a two bedroom condo… Continue reading Pros and Cons

Righting the Ship

The act of reversing a capsized vessel is called righting. This title came to mind when I opened this document and started typing because it came on the heels of ‘catching up’ in my HabitShare app. I’ve lost some discipline in that app, and the habits that I track in there. Overall I’m sitting around… Continue reading Righting the Ship


My Pastor has explained the importance of creating motion. Once you are moving, it’s easier to be redirected. And right now, I feel like we are in motion. My last blog post I was talking about our new tent camper, and how we’ve had to figure a few different things out. One of them, last… Continue reading Motion

1994 Bonair 1050

1994 Bonair 1050 Well, just over a month ago (April 10th to be exact) we bought a tent camper. For anyone who doesn’t know, this is something you pull behind your vehicle that ‘pops up’ into a tent trailer. I had to switch ‘car’ to ‘vehicle’ in the last sentence, because after our friends pulled… Continue reading 1994 Bonair 1050


My goal with this blog was to write 5x a week… This is my first blog in May, and looking in my HabitShare app, I only blogged three times in April. Just double that in March. This week, I’m hoping I can get a “green wall”, or hit that 5x a week goal. Starting this… Continue reading Check-in


About a month after we moved into this place, we started hanging pictures around the house. As I sit at my desk in the basement, over my right-hand shoulder is my Aviation Diploma, Business Degree and my recently-awarded Master’s degree. These three are neatly arranged from top to bottom, with the MBA at the top.… Continue reading Loyalty
