Book Review: Unfu*k Yourself by Gary John Bishop

I am a little late with February’s book, but you didn’t expect me to be on time, did you?! If you’re being honest, you’re kind of impressed that I came back to this series at all, aren’t you? And yet, here I am, selflessly reading another self help book so you don’t have to*. You’re… Continue reading Book Review: Unfu*k Yourself by Gary John Bishop

Des Favouritos

It has been awhile since I’ve posted a “Favourites” blog. This isn’t necessarily a January favourites list, because um… Unless I write it down (and I didn’t), I can’t remember the last time I went to the bathroom, let alone what I was doing last month. Here, instead, is some random online (mostly YouTube) stuff… Continue reading Des Favouritos

Gone is the mid-December New Year fervour, and in its place, the “Oh shit, now I actually have… Continue reading 2018: Create a Lot of Things (even if it turns into a garbage fire)

How One Facebook Post Changed My Life

I’ve spent a good part of my adulthood wanting to start my life over again, fantasizing about how great everything would be now if only I had done something differently then. I can’t tell you how many hours/days/years I’ve dedicated to wishing I could go backward. I know with crystal clarity that I’d spend my… Continue reading How One Facebook Post Changed My Life

A New Dinnertime Ritual & Wedninterestday Taco Stuffed Peppers

My oldest daughter takes after me in so many ways, if you put us side-by-side at 7 years old, you’d question who was who. That’s both a good and a bad thing because, in addition to inheriting positive qualities like my craftiness or soft spot for the underdog, she has also inherited my negativity. Like,… Continue reading A New Dinnertime Ritual & Wedninterestday Taco Stuffed Peppers
