IS THE CAR YOUR NEW HAVEN?

“Girls! Get in the car!” “Where are we going?” “The gas station.” “I LOVE the gas station!!” Says Fiona, who is five. But the weird thing is, they all do. They love getting in the car with mommy, because the gas station means a little treat for all of us – a chocolate...

DO YOU MOTHER’S DAY?

I suck at Mother’s Day. I’m not sure if I suck more at doing something nice for my mother, or at trying to be grateful that my kids made a card and poem out of crap I bought at the dollar store the week before. It’s confusing. I’m supposed to care right? But I don’t....

WHEN I’M NINETY, SHE’LL BE FIFTY.

Yesterday I was at the gym. A woman I know from racing was there. Somehow we started talking about her father and how he suffered from Alzheimer’s and passed away at the age of 90. There were many thoughts in my head. Alzheimer’s sucks; losing a parent sucks no matter...

WILL ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE STEAL YOUR PURPOSE?

Yesterday I cried. Just a little. I could feel my throat tightening, and little salty pools building in the corners of my eyes threatening to spill over as I clapped my hands. I teetered on the edge of an air sucking, snot inducing sob. No one noticed because everyone...

THAT’S RIGHT. I YELL AT MY KIDS.

Some families have a chore board or a swear jar — we have a yelling chart. Two days ago my oldest came downstairs and explained how it worked. “The Chart” before Monday morning. One block for yelling at someone. Only sixteen blocks allowed per day. A different colour...

THE #1 PROBLEM WITH A ‘TO-DO’ LIST.

To-do lists are bad math.  Each item on a to-do list doesn’t equal one item, it equals TEN. A to-do list with three things on it, takes 30 steps to accomplish it. It’s just bad math. Last week I got pulled over by the police. At the time, I stopped fully at a stop...

IT’S HERE! MY BOOK-BOOK IS HERE!

Holy crap, they’re here. One hundred books, in four boxes, from the UPS guy. Well, not really from the UPS guy, but he carried them to the porch and kind of looked at me like I should help. I didn’t. I just smiled. Or beamed. Or I might have crapped my pants because...
