I lived in the 1930’s and 1940’s as a preteen and teen. Lived there. To the point that I thought communism was still illegal in the States. Do you understand? Thought McCarthyism had won or something, if I
really even knew what McCarthyism was.
Don’t be fooled by the title of the post. It isn’t that I was obsessed with the women’s rights movement or anything of the sort. No, I was just obsessed with the time period. The dresses. The movies. The Continue

Ever watch a talk show and wonder what in the world goes on behind the
scenes? Well, I’m gonna show you! Today, I brought my video camera
along while I got ready for a live tv segment on ABC-7’s, The View From
the Bay. Let me tell you there’s a whole lot of prepping that goes way
before the show ever goes live. Including me practicing my
“eco-friendly products” segment at home in between preschool drop off
and pick up.… Continue

In June 2008, Jamie woke up early one morning and joined me in her office working. Within five minutes of falling back to sleep on the couch, Jamie started making odd noises. I looked over and saw what looked like a right side stroke which scared me beyond belief. She was making such an odd noise, her right eye and right side of her mouth were twitching and she was unresponsive. I called for her older sister to help me and within minutes, she was up but drooling uncontrollably and incoherent.… Continue

What do you do to celebrate the day?
Well, I am celebrating with my favorite Pecan Pie.

Glorious sunshine. It's been a long and difficult separation, yet it seems we'll soon be reunited for another torrid few months! Honestly, I've been lusting after the sun like something out of 9 1/2 Weeks. I didn't know the pull of Vitamin D could ever be synonymous with a young, strapping Mickey Rourke of yore, but there you go... I miss the long, long walks and the Toronto parks, not to mention the guilt-free gelato that invariably ensues. And hopefully -- if you'll excuse the dreadful pun --… Continue

“The man who removes a mountain begins by carrying away small stones.” ~Chinese Proverb
While playing Lego blocks with my daughter, yesterday afternoon, my attention was piqued by a home she had built for one of her little miniature dolls. She had erected the walls around the figurine, and in the excitement of the moment, she had forgotten to include a door.
Here was the poor little doll, sitting in a cluster of colored plastic bricks tightly intertwined together as… Continue

You don’t want your kid to undergo from early tooth decay, right? Much more have a bridge, or have a smile makeover in their teeth prematurely. So, as a parent it’s best to encourage your children to brush regularly. But take my advice, don’t force them. I learned it the hard way. Instead of my kid following my rules and advice, he lost interest in following at all.

I am often asked by those behind me in the check out lane, "Where do you find all of those coupons?" It seems like an easy question to answer, but really I could spend 20 minutes going through all the ways one could find coupons. Because so many people, especially those new to couponing, think that the Sunday paper is the only place to get coupons, I thought I would compile a list of great ways to get coupons other than the Sunday… Continue

My husband and I fold laundry together. It’s one of the only chores we can share and still enjoy each other’s company, not only because it’s the only household job that neither of us has passively and purposely fumbled to get out of, but because we joke around a lot while we’re folding, like we just met.
The conversation is also mixed with nostalgia.

"Mummmmmmyyyyy I wake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
Swiftly followed by footsteps more befitting of a baby elephant than a 2 year old, my toddler arrived at my bedside.
We did our normal ritual. Wee wee, Peppa slippers, screams because I try and get away without carrying her down the stairs (oh my poor back).
Finally we arrive in the kitchen for milk. Things went wrong when she fell head first off the work surface and…
