26th October - 31 days/Five Minute Friday - Moment

In an effort to get blogging on a regular basis it seems I need a challenge.  I've opted to try and complete this one as it's only supposed to take 5 minutes each day.  Of course it takes a bit longer than that to get the post presented how I want it but the content was done with a timer.

Today’s prompt is Moment and here's my 5 minutes' worth:

Hey wait a moment, today’s prompt was listed as Capture. What?  That was yesterday?  Oh no, I’ve missed a day, mainly because it was hard to capture a moment to myself yesterday.  I was on Nathan duty as usual but it was his Mummies’ wedding anniversary too so they went out for dinner and I babysat for them.  Hubby joined me for the evening but by that time I had managed to get Nathan to sleep and he stayed asleep until after his Mummies came home.

Anyway I didn’t get to do a post – by the time we got home it was almost midnight and I admitted defeat.  I’ve done one too many midnight dashes the last week, it’s been busy, and I just needed to sleep.  Especially as the night before I hadn’t slept well at all.

Hubby and I are travelling to Canada next month and then on to Vermont to celebrate Thanksgiving with our son’s in-laws.  It should be very exciting but….
We have to get an electronic visa waiver to enter Canada.  Mine was processed within an hour.  Hubby being his usual honest self, declared the various minor offences he has from the past, all to do with driving.  Nothing major, just a few silly mistakes.  But ….. the response from Canada was he now needs to produce a Police Check.  You can imagine my initial reaction.  Panic.  Police checks can take a while.  We don’t have a while.  Fortunately we have more than a few moments and we can pay for the privilege of having a response within 2 working days.  It took almost that long to get the necessary photo and paperwork together, scanned in and submitted!  By me.  Hubby is technology challenged.

Provided there are no glitches it should all be fine but I’ll be relieved when everything is sorted.  It was obviously playing on my mind the night before last.  I dreamt I was on a plane, stuck in my seat with hubby nowhere to be seen and he had my suitcase!  I really was captured but thankfully only for the moment it took me to wake up.

Who says there no sense in our dreams?

Today I’ve had more than a few moments to myself.  I decided that as Wendysday got taken over by laundry etc Friday would be Myday this week.  After sorting out the police check paperwork I’ve spent what was left catching up on blogging and TV and anything else that has captured my interest.


  1. An interesting post, indeed! Sure hope hubby's visa comes through quickly. I also wish Vermont was closer to Florida so I could drive up to meet you in person!! No chance for a visit to Disney World, I guess?? I think this post qualifies for both Capture and Moment!!

  2. You have to be as honest as a politician, then everything works well ! I have problems with my email, I don't get any anymore, have to look in Blogger who commented ! Hope I get it settled soon !
    Nathan's mummies are lucky to have you for babysitting ! I always had to hire one, my mother was afraid of babies (that exists !!)

  3. How stressful! I miss when I could just cross the border with a driver's license. I hope it goes through easily, for you.
