Super Pups: Nick Jr. Paw Patrol Characters Review

Super Pups: Paw Patrol T.V. Show Review-

 

Super Pups Paw Patrol:

Allie loves the Paw Patrol characters. She can name each pup and the people as well. She gets so excited whenever she see’s anything that pertains to the show. She has also accumulated some Paw Patrol merchandise.

 

She has a large Skye, Rubble, Skye lunchbox, Chase nightlight, and Paw Patrol blanket.

So, I think it is safe to say at this point that Allie really likes these silly little pups.

Now, on to the review…

The show, in general, is very good. It teaches patience, helpfulness, preparedness, and many other great life lessons that can be instilled in a child at a young age.

I was not aware until I looked up some background information, that Paw Patrol is a Canadian show. It is, in my opinion, a very well made show. I sometimes find myself getting lost in the story. They get into some pretty silly jams and always figure it out together.

Paw Patrol Characters

These are the core Paw Patrol characters who appear in every episode.

Zuma- Is a water loving chocolate lab who loves to surf and drive his super hovercraft to rescues.

These pups have a really great brother/sisterhood. They help each other with genuine concern. That teaches more than just compassion. They are always very positive and caring. I am very glad to say that this is Allie’s favorite show.

Baggage Claim: What do we do with all this excess stuff?

Baggage Claim: What do we do with all this excess stuff?

 

maxresdefault (1)

 

We all have some sort of baggage. Depending on what happened in our lives, who we crossed paths with or how we emotionally handle stress. Everyone has baggage.

 

I believe that everyone has some sort of baggage. We just handle it in different ways. Sometimes it can overwhelm us and interfere in our relationships. I have always wondered how people deal with baggage. I know there is some baggage that people will absolutely not deal with for anyone. And that is our choice.

 

Different types of baggage:

 

Major problems with parents or family in general:

 

baggage claim in life

 

There are so many different reasons one could have baggage from family. It is usually from a parental problem but, can stem from other sources like siblings or cousins.

I think the biggest section of this category is resentment for a parent favoring one child over another. Like, feeling less loved because an older or younger sibling is getting more attention or is more successful in everything.

 

Depression:

Vincent_Willem_van_Gogh_002

A lot of things can happen to make people fall into depression. There is no formula to track the symptoms or figure out who is more likely to be depressed. Different things effect people in many different ways. There should be no judgment, they have enough to deal with already. A support system is key to helping them.

Sometimes you can figure out that a friend might need help. They are moody; don’t feel like being social with others; they have low self-esteem and are critical of themselves; have lost interest in activities that used to make them happy; complains a lot and has a pessimistic view of the future; gets irritated easily and excels at starting arguments; and cries once in a while for no particular reason.

 

An Ex-ample:

A significant other can definitely leave you with a great deal of emotional baggage no matter how long or intense your relationship was, and these experiences could make things a lot worse for your future relationships. And it applies to the people you date as well.

When you first start dating someone, ask yourself the following questions: Is this person still in contact with his or ex? Has the person you’re dating fully closed the romantic/need-for-attention door with the ex.

If you breathe even the slightest whiff of unfinished business with your date’s ex, you will make your life easier by heading toward the nearest exit sign. If the last relationship ended in a nasty or messy way, a person needs a year or longer to heal before being able to start a healthy relationship – which means not carrying baggage into the next one.

In the first few months of dating, he mentions his ex at least once per week; she still keeps pictures around or other mementos of the ex; you hear him mention the ex’s name when he’s talking to friends; he tries to get together with the ex for coffee or a meal soon after the breakup; or they compares you in any way to their ex.

When we’re willing to hold onto a person at all costs, even if that means losing ourselves, we’d rather have them on some terms, even if they’re crummy terms, rather than not at all. We decide that they’re the only way that we can be happy and we act as if they’re our oxygen supply. The very person who is actually contributing to our deep unhappiness is at the same time regarded as the primary or even sole source of our happiness.

While this person is suffering from excessive baggage, this relationship will hurt you in many ways so it is best to end it. If you decide to try to help them get through their hurt and move on that is your decision. But, try not to hang on to long because if they can’t move through it you are stuck as well.

Types of underlying baggage:

13408034714_b58f77028f_b

 

PASSIVE AGGRESSIVENESS: the indirect expression of hostility, through procrastination, stubbornness, sullen behavior, or deliberate/repeated failure to accomplish tasks for which one is responsible.

 

NO COMPROMISES: showing an unwillingness to make concessions to others, especially by changing one’s ways or opinions.

 

NOT HOUSE TRAINED: This is quite common. It could be that you swear like a sailor, or don’t clean your room, or eat with your mouth open, or pee on the toilet seat, or leave dirty underwear everywhere.

 

SELFISHNESS:  concerned excessively or exclusively with oneself :  seeking or concentrating on one’s own advantage, pleasure, or well-being without regard for others.

 

CRITICISM: the act of expressing disapproval and of noting the problems or faults of a person or thing.

 

BLAME: to say or think that a person or thing is responsible for something bad.

 

Accept it:

22593314880_6ba0c6951d_b

The first step to dealing with your emotional baggage is to admit that it does exist. Acceptance may take some people longer than others. However, remember that just because you accept that you have emotional baggage doesn’t mean you have to tell everyone! Overall, emotional baggage doesn’t need to stop you from living a full and happy life. Understand that every person has some emotional baggage, and don’t be afraid of what lies ahead!

 

If you are depressed or know someone who is please go ADAA and contact a doctor or family member.

 

In conclusion, at the end of the day take care of yourself first. You are the one that matters the most to you. Before you let anyone in make sure they are worthy of you.

Moving: What the heck do you need?!

Moving on up to the east side…….

To a not so deluxe apartment almost in the sky….

movers-24403_1280

 

So, this is sort of off the cuff. I did make a rough draft list but most of this is off the top of my head. Honestly, I work better (and calmer) that way.

We are currently in the middle of packing to move. I have been scouring the interwebs trying to find a comprehensive checklist of things we need or don’t need as the time gets closer. Also, trying to find a schedule type thing that is easy to follow and not to in depth. I have failed.

I have decided to put together my own little tips and tricks to make the transition and actual move a little less stressful (I mean there is no way to eliminate all the stress from a move).

I will be jumping around to different checklists and strategies that I have come up with so far.

First of all… I have come up with a system of colored dots on all of the boxes to signify to which room they belong. I had a lot of fun doing this actually. Color coding is one of the things that relaxes me so this was a great idea on my part.

This is my code:

Living room- yellow bar

Dining room- blue bar

Kitchen- green dot

Allie’s room- pink bar

Basement- blue dot

Master Bedroom- yellow dot

Spare room- red dot

moving on up to the east side moving on up to the east side 2

 

I will have corresponding colors on the doors to the rooms for less confusion. We will be having a few friends helping with the move, This system should help it run smoother than it would normally…. hopefully. (I am aware that the yellow and blue bars and dots are pretty much the same but I’m hoping that the shapes will be enough of a difference not to cause a problem).

Finally, on with the actual lists of things you will need for the first few nights while you are working on unpacking and organizing everything. (at least I know we will need these things) 🙂

maxresdefault

Food/drink type stuff:                                                                                                                                   

milk
sugar
creamer
coffee
tea bags
snacks
water/filter
broom
dust pan
lysol/comet
vacuum

Kitchen:

towels
tea pot
coffee maker
plastic cups and plates
dish soap
sponges
mugs

Cleaning:

baking soda
disinfecting wipes or spray
hand soap
paper towels
window cleaner
rags
bucket

Bathroom:

hand towels
bath towels (1 for each)
shampoo and conditioner
body soap

Personal:

tooth brush
tooth paste
a few changes of clothes
pajamas
deodorant

Kids:                                             

nightlight
pajamas
blanket
bink (if using)
some toys
a few changes of clothes

Misc.

flash lights
batteries (various sizes)
chargers
important documents (rental agreement)
first aid kit
markers
packing tape
paper/post-its

 

Also, take the time to clean as much as possible before you move any large furniture into the house. It is so much easier to do a deep clean when there is nothing in the way. It will feel more like your home if you put that clean touch of yourself in it.

 

I highly recommend…… Cleaning list

 

So, right now this is all I have in the list category. There are a lot of things that need to be done that do not necessarily fit into a list.

 

Make sure to pack things you will definitely need within the first few hours of moving in so that you will not need to search around everywhere in different boxes for certain things. This is easier said than done, but it makes it a lot less difficult if you try to think of the things you are going to need and keep them aside.

Most of all, you will be so happy when you finally get in and settled and can breath a sigh of relief. You are home!

 

I can’t wait for that to happen for us. It can’t come soon enough , because of this I can’t seem to quell my anxiety but that is another post altogether.

 

Thank you so much for reading. I hope I didn’t bore you to much. Have a wonderful weekend!

A Day Late and a Dollar Short

Short post today. Not what I had planned because I did no prep of any kind. This was supposed to be yesterdays post but I got very bad news and I’m still processing and I am very emotional.

Today, I don’t feel like thinking very much. I’m just going to do a sort of stream of consciousness with photos I have collected the last couple of days.

Life is difficult. And way to short.

Life goes on… the sun still shines and for some reason you still breath… in and out.

“I carry your heart with me (I carry it in my heart)I am never without it (anywhere
I go you go,my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling)
I fear no fate (for you are my fate,my sweet)I want no world (for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you
here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called life; which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart
I carry your heart (I carry it in my heart)”

Inspiration Reactions: How does it make you feel?

Inspiration Reactions: How does it make you feel?

I remember being in catholic high school, (well, it was only 13 years ago). So, First thing in Theology class our teacher would have a bible passage written on the board. We would have to copy it in our journal and then write at least four sentences on what it meant to us. Then, we would discuss our feelings and get to know each others thoughts. That was my favorite part of the day. Mostly, because I loved being able to express myself with others instead of being told what something was “supposed” to teach me. It was very relaxing and fun.

So, I would like to take that same idea and apply it to a few quotes. I will give my perspective and I would love if you could add your ideas on some of them. I think it will be a lot of fun and eye opening. Lets get to the inspiration!

.________________.

“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice, and most of all love of what you are doing”.

inspiration for life and blog

This quote speaks to me in different ways. It reminds me of what my mom always used to say, “Anything worth doing is worth doing well”. If you don’t love what you do, you will never put in the work needed to be successful. You will not care about the process or the end result because your isn’t in it totally. Love what you do and you’ll never work a day in your life.

._____________________.

“Remind yourself that its okay not to be perfect”.

short-inspirational-quotes-16

I picked this one because I hate that word. PERFECT- definition: Having all the required or desirable elements, qualities or characteristics, as good as it is possible to be. WHAT?! Who decides this standard?!?!! This word should never be used for a person in any way! It was made to describe an object. Like, this pen writes perfectly. It has all the qualities a perfect pen needs. People are so different and remarkable that there is absolutely no ONE “perfect”example. I just don’t like it.

“Be fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire”.

20-Inspiring-Status-Quotes-for-your-next-Status-3-Inspiring-Quotes-Quotes-for-Status

This is a great one Keep your eye on your passion and don’t forget why you started. Strive to reach your goal every day. Don’t be afraid to take a risk to better yourself.You will look back and be so proud of yourself for doing what you never thought you could.

“View life s a continuous learning experience”.

inspiration for life

I know for a fact of course that I learn not just something but a lot of new things everyday. So many different aspects of life amaze me. My daughter is definitely my biggest teacher. She teaches me so many different things, like how to be humble. How to get back to the basics in life and just be happy with what you have right now. How to love so freely and with out condition. She is my everything.

._________________,

“If you change the way you look at things, the things you look at change”.

I chose this quote because it is my favorite from Dr. Wayne Dyer. He was such an inspirational speaker and all around great person. Change your thoughts change your life. (this is not sponsored but I love his books so much I want to add a link to my favorite. Excuses Begone) If something isn’t going your way change your perspective. Look at it in a different way and see the good in it. There is always a way to make your situation better.

._____________________.

And one more…. my Grandmother used to say this as she got older.

“Age is an issue of mind, If you don’t mind it doesn’t matter”.

49f569304d6044176ace5a2276272c9a

I always laughed because I never knew what she meant. Looking back now I recall that she never let her age get in the way. It was never an issue for her. She did whatever she wanted right up to the day she died. She has always been my inspiration. It has been 12 years and still everything she did and said resonates in my life. She was a beautiful, smart, loving, wonderful woman who taught me so much about life and what really matters.

So, that is enough inspiration for now. Hopefully you will be touched by one or more of these quotes and want to share your thoughts with me.

Thank you for reading. Hopefully, I didn’t bore you to much. Have a wonderful day!
