I Miss You Manitoba

I Miss You Manitoba…
I miss you Manitoba, where the sky is bluer,
The clouds are bigger,
The people are truer,
I miss you – go figure.
I miss you Manitoba, where my family resides,
The ache always there,
Your vastness divides
Miles away to show I care.
I miss you Manitoba, where the air is crisp,
The bounteous parks and lakes,
The pine needles scent wisps,
For this my heart aches.
I miss you Manitoba, where culture abounds,
The city sounds roar,
The coming of snow mounds,
With streets and shops that never bore.
I miss you Manitoba.

Not a Pleasant Post...

WARNING: This isn’t a pleasant post. This is about the bodily function of gas that emits from young boys followed by extreme laughter.
As a Mom, I’m tired of it! Seriously, sun up to sun down – I don’t like the smell! I’ve actually zoned the main living area and kitchen as zones it isn’t allowed in! Call me a mean Mom but really……I value normal air zones! So….I’m assigning a page of lines for every time someone pollutes my air space. They can take it down stairs to a bathroom or their room if they feel it coming on….just saying, and use the air spray please!
I will survive the teen years, yes I will – but I have my limits on air space! J 
Yes, I’m a hypocrite….from the prior blog of the farting prayer gal…. I get why they laugh…somehow it is just easier to smell one’s own then others. Any advice for this Mom on what you do in your home? Sheesh. It just isn’t the boys either, the girls too but they aren’t as enjoying of the pain it causes others….well sometimes they are. 
Not to mention a news headliner: Farting Cows make Barn Explode!
