Yesterday, we put our double stroller out with the garbage.
It has been a day, to say the least. It started innocently enough. I slept in, skipped my morning meditation and went straight into editing my book at 6am, because I had already lost an hour. I’m trying out intermittent fasting to lose some of the dreaded COVID 15, so I did my best to ignore my growling stomach while I wrote, actually looking forward to the glass of Metamucil I’ve been taking for two days now.
There’s a campaign going around. The thinking goes, if a critical mass of people send a letter of intent to homeschool, it can change our region’s decision to close schools. Either that, or they can face losing funding.
I would have posted me doing the happy dance on my social media last week when Ontario announced the kids were going back to school on February 16, but I was too busy.
Too busy being a mom of four, running a business, volunteering, writing a book and launching another season of podcasts. Doing none of them very well, I might add.
I may be 40-something, and married with kids, but I still love my rom-coms like I love chocolate, and the holiday flicks the most. In fact, I wrote my first novel to the tune of the holidays, watching my favourite rom-coms and crying into my Kleenex boxes. So, I’m so excited to share my favourite holiday rom-coms with you here. Put on your coziest PJs, grab some Christmas cookies and a blanket and don’t forget that Kleenex box—for the happy tears!
These days, it’s hard to tell between fact and fiction. Halloween is just days away and yet it can feel like the zombie apocalypse is already here.
Needless to say the first day of school was not how I pictured it…
It’s my last first day of school. My four-year-old daughter, my baby, is heading to kindergarten. For the first time in over a decade, I will come home to an empty house.
When I was little, the big kids ruled the block. Babysitting. Paper routes. Girl Guide cookies.
My twins hate learning to play piano.
It kills me to do so, but I’m on the verge of letting them off the hook.
