No, I’m not stalling, YOU ARE! *Errhhemm* Anyway… this week has been madness for me. Carpet Madness! (That’s an … More My Life Is Like Tetris
I’ve been avoiding my blog. Actually I’ve been avoiding a lot of things lately. I suppose it’s because I feel like every time I open my mouth (or my blog) a whole slew of black negativity spews forth and I end up choking on it. It’s not pretty. But today in the shower, where all my … More Analogy Of Life

There has been three very distinct moments in my life when I was faced with a fork in the road. I’m certain there have been many more than this over my 34 years but like I said, three really stand out for me. It’s these three moments that I want to share with you. The … More Crossroads Numero Uno
I don’t speak about it often, but it’s been my dream for nearly 8 years now to move to Vancouver, BC. There’s a whole laundry list of reasons why. The weather is much more preferable than Winnipeg, the culture is right up my alley, the smattering of friends located nearby and I’m a HUGE Vancouver … More Vancouver Rocks!
Life at the Richmond house has been a little chaotic lately. And when I say chaotic, I mean full out insanity. It happens nearly every June. I take an already busy month of birthdays and cram in additional items till my cup overrunneth. This year I added two online courses, selling my house, packing & … More It Ain’t Always Easy
