I just finished reading a beautifully written book that I received as part of a blog book review tour from Feminist Press. Did you know that some younger women do not like to be called feminists? What is up with that? But I digress.

My friend left work today, excited because she was heading straight to her new gym. For a few minutes I was envious. She would, after all, get to work out without small companions who make comments like, "Look, mom, I can stretch, too! I can stretch more than you!!" and "Wow, mom! Look how much the Wii says you weigh!!"
But then I looked outside and saw it was snowing. Again. My motivation left as quickly as it had arrived. Don't get me wrong. I want to be fit. I want sculpted arms… Continue

I had a nightmare Saturday night - jumbled, disjointed, frightening scenes. It started with our family going to a store's grand opening. It ended with me being trapped inside, watching a plane crash-land in the parking lot and skid into the building as panic and chaos erupted all around me.
I couldn't find my husband; I couldn't find my children.
In the dream, I think I was in a Wal-mart, but I might as well have been in a Safeway, because I'm sure the murderous rampage in… Continue

the day she was born (December 9th, 2009) up until now. I worked my ass
off on it. Did you know that she's been alive for three years even
though she's only just turned one? This was the super nerdy fact my
husband presented to me this morning.
Right before I informed him that I had saved our marriage.
Let me explain.
Instead of sex…

So I had a little meltdown at work today. You know, holiday stress, last-minute assignments, all that fun stuff. And so I snuck out of my cubicle kingdom for a minute to go take a few deep breaths.
I went to the ladies room. Not a good choice for a variety of reasons, but my options were limited. I locked the door of the stall and just stood there, trying to organize my thoughts and tell myself that yes, I could get everything done, and no, I wouldn't have a nervous… Continue

I hate complaining about something and not offering any solutions. And while my solutions often fall somewhere between “just hold hands and love each other” and “smite them all”, I often come up with something that works.
So, with that in mind, here are my thoughts on creating a positive, empowering and mother & baby friendly breastfeeding environment. I focus on my local hospital, the IWK, and my province but the information I provide can be used by…

I often wonder if I should stay or if I should go. Today was one of those days that I just felt a little out of place. I don't believe in guns but I joined the military. My job doesn't require me to use one and so I sometimes forget that I am surrounded by people who believe that everyone should be toting a gun. I don't know if the military is where I belong or if I should be doing something else. The biggest threat that I have at work is a paper cut the pay and benefits are good… Continue
