Off The Fence

Hello Ladies! Today I'm taking a little "me" time. I have a nice day planned, and therefore will NOT be writing about on the fence issues. I will be starting my day off with a carpool of course, followed by a second carpool. Followed by a girlfriend's 35th birthday extravaganza. Myself, the birthday girl, and a bunch of friends will be heading…

Off The Fence

Hi Ladies, Anyone home now? I am! It's Saturday night, and our babysitter wasn't able to sit. Just put the last child to bed and am gonna watch the Hockey Game on TV. I'm totally wiped. The good news... we had our FIRST double sleep-out last night. My kids slept at my parents' house. Woo hoo!! I dropped them both…

How Fragile Life Truly Is

Hi Ladies. I had a few things I wanted to cover today, so this one will be a bit of a mixed bowl. I firstly want to thank WordPress (www.wordpress.com) for choosing yesterday's blog on GUILT as one of the featured articles of the day. It brought me insane amounts of traffic, and I was excited beyond belief. One of…

Guilt… Guilty, Guilty, Guilty!

Oh the Guilt! Oh the Guilt! Actually, guilt does…

Knowing When to Pull the Plug on your Career

Good Morning, m'Ladies. I started writing a book a few years ago. I just found it on my computer today and thought I would share the first page with you. The issues are pertinent today, and it's what some of you have been stuck on the fence about. I owned a good business at the time, but was deciding if…

Taking A Little “ME” Time

It's Saturday morning. Right now, as I'm writing, the Wii is going strong in one room, another child  is climbing on me, and my husband is calling out some order down the hallway. And guess what... I just don't feel like it all today. I just feel like sitting on a secluded beach, aqua blue water, waves crashing, sun shining,…

Shutting your brain off for a good night sleep

How many of you lay awake at night, tossing and turning, unable to sleep? How many of you flip flop around like a fish out of water, and check that clock... 1:17Am, 3:27Am, 4:49Am, 6:30AM.....BEEP BEEP BEEP. Your alarm is ringing, time to wake up!!

“What’s for dinner, honey?” Solving the Dinner Dilemma

If there is one daily question in our house that is sure to get me aggravated, it's "What's for dinner?" This is because dinnertime has been, and continues to be a thing of frustration for me. Just the sound of the question drives me bananas.  Trying to accommodate the nutritional needs and eating preferences of 4 different people. So, dinnertime…

My answer is “NO thank you right now.” Practicing saying the “forbidden word.”

So, I received a call the other day to teach a weekly course (4 hours a week) on entrepreneurship and mentoring... for free.  Everything I do, by the way, be it giving sales and marketing seminars in October, to the stuff I describe below, I do it all for free. Cuz I love it. The old me;  "Of course I'll…
