Have you ever been to one of those movies that involve all of your senses by immersing you into the film to such a degree that you feel the rain in the movie as water is spritzed onto your face or smell a blast of the hot chocolate lit up on the screen? That is what it...

Have you ever been put on the spot, whether from a deadline that came too quickly or an unexpected spotlight pointed straight at you, and concocted such a cleverly crafted response that those who heard it were enthralled? I call this the Bullsh*t Effect. I currently ha...

I’m what you would call a closet procrastinator. The saying, ‘Why do something today when I can put it off until tomorrow?’, defines me up to a point because I procrastinate, selectively. 

Like many of you, I find that there aren’t enough hours...

Those of you who have boys will understand (unless my sons are some sort of aberration and this post is far from your reality). A window into my world, will undoubtedly show you many things but it’s the things you hear that are the focal point today. You see, if you we...

It is the eve of a snow day and this can only mean copious amounts of wine, just kidding, sort of. Honestly, it is hard to determine who is more excited about the prospect of this ‘stolen day’, my children or me? Yes, I know it’ll come back around in June, but let me r...

We have all made New Year's resolutions at some point in our lives and if you are anything like me, those sincere commitments lasted about a week before suffering their inevitable end through such mumblings as, screw this! Of course, I like to believe that it is not my...

Kids make noise, this is an indisputable fact. However, I am beginning to think that my sons may have a unique gift for abstract sound that Industrial Light and Magic may be interested in. Admittedly, there are some sounds from down under that must be released into the...

As I lug the hundredth bundle of wood into the living room, stoke the coals and get a fire going-after at least ten minutes of muttering to myself and worrying over the pitiful flames-I sit upon the sofa with a cup of coffee and settle in to enjoy the solitude with onl...

It is rare to find a quiet moment in my house. In fact, I can't recall the number of times that I have closed the bathroom door and seated myself for a few moments of privacy only to hear the inevitable, "Mom!" I just want five minutes or three minutes or even two. Hec...
