My son’s last quadmester (4th semester consisting of two subjects due to remote/virtual learning) began a couple of weeks ago. It will run until the end of June, probably online. And then, he’ll have graduated grade 10 from inside of his bedroom. Thank you Mr. Trudeau and Mr. Ford. You are both equally to blame. (Don’t at me unless you’re Justin or Doug, I’m not going to rant and debate about this today.)Continue reading “Heartbreak”
As I type this shortly after lunch, I would have still been in labour 16 years ago today. Contractions began at 2 am so I was driven to hospital where they declared me dilated enough to remain in hospital, but it would still be hours before the baby was born. 🎉🎂Continue reading “16 years ago”
I had a relapse last night. And by relapse I mean several things, but especially my neck and spine injury which I managed to aggravate somehow just as I was feeling better. 😟Continue reading “A ramble about the weekend”
So I taped myself for you. Just a short, less than a minute long clip. I’m talking about my hair, if that means anything to you. Note, if you’re reading this in reader, the video may not show up there. I don’t know, I’ll know after I publish. If it doesn’t, just open the website. It’ll be there for sure. Happy covid Monday. My kids are forced into online learning again all week, and today was day 1 (well, morning of day 1). See you in the comments. 🙂 Continue reading Video of me talking to you
You know those hollow chocolate Santas, they look sort of like this?
There was one like that on the table, but decapitated. The foil was peeled down and the head missing, but whatever.Continue reading “More mess”
My day started out meh and went progressively worse as the hours ticked by.
Note: as I’m typing this it’s not even lunchtime yet. 🙄Continue reading “Friends and parenting go hand in hand”
Recently, the family dinner table conversation turned to internet trolling.Continue reading “Dinner table conversation: internet, social media, and trolls”

You can comment if you want, but think twice before you hit publish if you’re going to tell me how you had a steak dinner in a restaurant or went to a party at some club or how all your stores are not going out of business because they are all open and functioning as normal.

fuck crap which way you lean in terms of your political orientation or covid and I don’t want to engage, or have my readers engage, in a political pissing contest on my platform. Please and thank you. I’m just ranting here to get the unfairness of all this crap out of my system. #SorryNotSorry
My email exploded. There’s a bunch of messages coming through from the hockey manager. My teenager, who is 15, has played competitive hockey since the age of 4. This is probably his third last year of playing competitive – after he graduates from grade 12 (he’s in grade 10) he will probably be done. Unfortunately, this year has been nothing short of a clusterfuck.
For obvious reasons.
But here’s the thing.Continue reading “Detouring with a little rant”
