"Over For Whom?"
Kelly and Shannon are back with a quick update on the dumpster fire that is Ontario. Updates all around including virtual learning, work, and Kelly's mom. Hard to believe that in our third calendar year of this pandemic we are still confused and plagued by impossible decisions. But little things like recycling and Christmas trees are still top of mind. So much gratitude to those who have continued to ask us about where we are.

“You start dying slowly if…”
A rousing morning discussion on collagen, nails and gut health from two non-experts. Always so much to learn! Shannon’s family takes a trip to Niagara Falls where they all learn they do NOT like haunted houses. We (like you) have a good laugh at the expense of good ole Mr. Amazon. Kelly did a camp drop off complete with a friendly Covid “SWAT” team. Life is slowly returning to normal. A poem from Pablo Neruda to round out the feelings of re-entry to society. It’s normal to bounce between the highs and lows.

The more things change...
Exciting things are happening: the kids are at camp and Kelly went to a play! #happyplace Shannon’s sour involves money - surprise !! Moral of the story, check your bank accounts once in awhile *eyeroll*. Why do we want to cancel our therapy and self care when we are already at our lowest point?? And, a listener shares a sweet!! Hooray

BACKFLASH #4 !!! ROADBLOCKS
NOTE: we discuss the existence of Santa/ Easter Bunny and Tooth Fairy in this episode #earmuffs. NOTE TWO: the audio quality is not the same as current episodes but it’s also not unbearable 😛Kelly & Shannon discuss feeling safe vs feeling trapped. But at least it’s Monpoly time at McDonald’s! We are not ready for Halloween mentally or financially, are you? LOTS of Halloween talk! The guilt is killing us. Spoiler alert: Kelly does not like Pinterest. Ambition is nowhere to be found.

We are still in recovery from last week’s episode, but things are looking up! Endorphins and dopamine are on the rise via both sport and theatre. Kelly and Shannon discuss the status of their respective second doses - always lots to think (and worry) about! Shannon recruits Kelly to help make a call on a ‘big’ family outing. And, Kelly is shockingly positive about going back out in the big, crowded world. Universal income rears its liberal head again and it reminds Shannon of a time in the nail salon. We chat about Kelly’s bday gift to herself! Woot!

We’ve never questioned it this much.
Kelly enjoyed the Province’s reopening, Shannon not so much. Emotions are running high, which as usual, are not being eased by the big C-19. Or the government. Spoiler alert: Kelly’s sweet is a purple skidoo suit #truestory.

BACKFLASH! #3 "Bringing up Bebe"
Another “Backflash” episode recorded in the fall of 2020! Kelly and Shannon discuss the european Le creche The French Way Why has the tone changed at the CRA? They made Kelly cry…. In a nice way? Sure sign of the apocalypse. Can the Handmaid's Tale cheer a person up? Shannon thinks not. However, forcing yourself to be horizontal does have its benefits. The finance course Shannon is talking about is with past guest, Heidi Rumohr - Fun! Kelly educates us on the “window tax” and why Shannon’s house is so small.

BACKFLASH! #2. The one in the Land of Sadness
Recorded in the fall of 2020! Kelly has back pain, and we really wonder why? And how she can heal. Would micro self care do the trick? Bottom line, we all need therapy - and Shannon does not want to provide it to the masses. Kelly’s pod-schoolers are starting to need help, navigating these waters is tough with a capital ‘T’. Kelly’s daughter writes an emotional journal. Setting expectations with pod parents and kids alike, “Has anyone ever lived in a commune?” We have a discussion about will it (the big C, Covid) go on forever? Is school changed forever? Is this a good thing? And, privilege rears its ugly head again.

Recounting the generosity of the community when Kelly can’t find a birthday card in her small town. We share a thorough rundown of what we are watching to keep our collective minds off the plague. Recommendations come from ALL the decades - now available on NETFLIX (with an X). Kelly accidentally attended the fringe of an anti-mask rally, not fun. A viewer wrote in - stop the press.

SHOTS! (Or What’s Your Sign?)
The theme of the week is vaccination!!! Lots of stress, swings and misses, but also lots of needles in the arms! Feels like a slight win buried amidst the difficulties of being back in North America’s longest lockdown. Virtual school is NOT working, and we have some thoughts on that. Robux is our currency now. We are still watching Netflix. P.s. Shannon’s Birthday is coming up and she is a Taurus. Kelly is a Gemini #themoreyouknow
