  • Be the Good

    Nov 14, 15 • 1461 Views • BlogNo Comments

    There are days when I get frustrated over the stupid things that people do: the messes that fully grown adults can leave in their wake at the office; the person who insists on tailgating on the highway even when there’s no place for the person in front...

  • Five Lessons for My Daughter as She Starts High School

    Sep 1, 15 • 1394 Views • BlogNo Comments

    This week, my little girl started high school. My little girl with the Shirley Temple curls, the little girl who could bat her long eyelashes over her big blue eyes and charm anyone. My little girl who seemed to become a teenager overnight. I know she’s...

  • A Hug I Wish I’d Given

    Jul 13, 15 • 1111 Views • BlogNo Comments

    I’m still kind of reeling from news I received this morning, so forgive me if I ramble a bit. I found out this morning that a former co-worker took his own life. He was one of the kindest people I had ever met, and one of the happiest – or so I...

  • Why I’m Not Doing the Ice Bucket Challenge

    Aug 22, 14 • 14878 Views • Blog1 Comment

    Well, it happened: as much as I was hoping that my lack of social media presence these days would make everyone forget all about me during these days of the viral “Ice Bucket Challenge”, it was not to be. One of my very best friends, who I love...

  • Let the Storm Rage On!

    Mar 22, 14 • 2746 Views • BlogNo Comments

    Yes, I am the last person in North America to see Frozen. I bought it for my kids the other day, and tonight I’m finally getting a chance to watch it. But of course, I’ve already heard “Let It Go.” From the infamous “Adele...

  • Justin Bieber: We’re All to Blame

    Mar 10, 14 • 20219 Views • Blog2 Comments

    I’ve spent a lot of time defending Justin Bieber over the past few years. Not because I particularly like his music, and not even because my kids are fans (they aren’t): I defended him because he was a kid, and all kids make mistakes. It’s just that...

  • Tonight Thank God It’s Them…

    Dec 18, 13 • 6776 Views • BlogNo Comments

    A few days ago, I saw a meme about the “creepiest Christmas songs.” There were a few I could definitely agree with: I mean, “The Christmas Shoes”… REALLY?!? But one I disagreed with vehemently: “Do They Know It’s...

  • A Tribe of My Own

    Dec 6, 13 • 1847 Views • BlogNo Comments

    Forgive me if this is a bit “stream of consciousness.” I’m writing this on my phone when I should be sleeping.  (NOTE: Yes, I’m typing this on the computer the next day, so really I should edit it, but…) Lately I’ve been...

  • Here Comes Santa Claus?

    Nov 18, 13 • 1935 Views • Blog, Climbing Up The SlideNo Comments

    An old friend of mine (as in, a friend who has incriminating picture from before your antics immediately ended up on Instagram anyway) is a new first-time mom. She posted on Facebook yesterday wondering how other parents handle the “Santa issue.”...

  • Candy Crush Life Lessons

    Oct 2, 13 • 3822 Views • Blog2 Comments

    It was back in the spring, I think, when I finally succumbed to its charms. I had scoffed at the updates in my news feed; wondered why anyone would want to waste their time on a game where all you did was switch multi-coloured candies around....
