Logan's Run & Closing Ceremonies

"God, anthems are windy!", my husband Jay said as we were watching the closing ceremonies of the Winter Olympics. I had my nose glued to Geekologie on the laptop, so I wasn't really paying attention and said, "is that Oh Canada again?...more

Teddy is sent to the naughty corner

I really wasn’t sure if sending 3yo to the naughty corner was working. He sometimes puts himself there. Sometimes tries to send me there. Then he sent his Teddy there, this is the story…    ...more


So this week celebrates both National Eating Disorder Awareness Week and National Pancake Day. No wonder we women are so confused about what is healthy behavior. Either these two PR campaigns are working together or cancel each other out. Is the message: Hi Ladies: Please do not think you are fat and too prove it,  eat a pancake or 6?...more

Help! I’m Melting!: When Rotten Moods Won’t Go Away

I grabbed the ticket and sulked inside, where I grumbled as I renewed my tabs online and printed out my receipt....more
