Blog Tour Pit Stop

Blog Tour Pit Stop

Do you remember chain letters? You would get a hand addressed envelope in the mail from your fellow grade 6 classmate and you just knew…. As you open the missive your forehead cracks a sweat because you now have 24 hours to hand copy this chain letter until your pencil is a nub, and mail to 6 friends or you will DIE! You could not break the chain without facing apocalyptic consequences. That is sort of how I felt when the normally kind...
Food is Evil

Food is Evil

I am so bloody sick of talking, thinking, learning, researching, fussing and worrying about food. It wasn’t always like this for me, but then suddenly it was. When I was young, my mother’s friends who were of an age (well into their 40′s apparently) couldn’t wait to share endless tales of eating misery. They sat there in velvet pant-suits, smoking, clutching lime green Martinis, and dispensed their wisdom. They felt the...

You meet all kinds of interesting characters when you are trying to find your new favourite employee.

I am a Domestic Archaeologist

I am a Domestic Archaeologist

I find odd and unusual items in my house. Sometimes these discoveries are wrapped in a cloak of dust bunny mystery which must be solved. Like the scientist I might have become, had I been smarter, I always feel the need to discover the facts behind the mysteries. Who knew that my own home would provide such a wealth of material for me to explore? I even went and bought a magnifying glass to look more authentic! It all started on the day I first...

Moved the website and other wonderfulness

Hello loved ones… I know… so dreary to think that the winter is not quite over. I feel that a bit of snow is pretty, in December and am so glad it doesn’t really come back. This post will be super short because there are things I need you to know. 1. Did I mention I write for Huffington Post? So funny and yet I somehow get away with my sense of humour. 2. I continue to enjoy writing for and editing Blunt Moms. I am so...
