Me too.

It's been hard to ignore the headlines for the past couple of weeks as one woman after another has come forward to tell of sexual harassment and abuse at the hands of a powerful Hollywood producer. That the list of names, well known and less familiar, can be so long and yet continues to grow ...

The waiting is the hardest part.

Last night before going to sleep I did my usual thing of one more compulsive round of social media before finally turning out the lights. The breaking news was the Las Vegas shooting. I read the news reports with equal parts horror and sadness. No, sadness doesn't even begin to cover the despair and anguish ...

It’s a wrap: February.

I finished January on a high, all empowered and loving life. I went into February with a sense of promise and optimism, feeling that mentally and physically I was in a good place. I hate to say it but.... ...February has been a struggle in ways I never expected. In fact my mood for most ...

So this is 42…

Forty-two sounds really old you guys. Like, the fun-thirties-are-over-and-shit-is-serious-now kind of old. But I would probably be freaking out a whole lot more if I didn't still have a small remnant of that old Pollyanna positivity buried somewhere deep inside, and I figure that I've done okay thus far. Four kids who are all pretty ...


The week that was…

Sometimes it all just comes at you at the same time, leaving you mentally exhausted and feeling like crap. Last week we farewelled our ninety year old grandmother. There were so many reasons to celebrate such a long life, and so many blessings to be counted in her final days: that she didn't suffer for ...

What is feminism anyway?

What's the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word feminist? Bra burning? {Maybe, if you're old enough.} Hairy armpits? Man haters? Women from the 1960's? It's one of those hot topics that never really goes away and sees every generation of young women asking themselves the questions: what is feminism and ...

It’s all part of his rock and roll fantasy…

Okay, not sure about the title. It's a Mudhoney lyric and it just popped into my head and I'm going with it. So it's Tuesday night and I got halfway through my online FOOD SAFETY SUPERVISOR course {yes, caps. It's very important.} I'll probably finish it tomorrow night because it's supposed to take about four ...

At what point are you an alcoholic?

Is there a point at which you go from being a social drinker who drops Facebook posts about being out of vodka to someone with a very real dependancy problem? My booze story began pretty late. I did the obligatory teen binge drinking for the sole purpose of getting drunk and nothing else, but even ...


This week in lala land…

The Easter Show. I hoped to be in and out at lightning speed and Mr 7 was more than happy to grab some show bags and some dinner and get the heck out of there. The surprise came when hubby wanted to go on the rides, see the animals, and was happy to make a ...

Turns out Nike was right.

Remember all those JUST DO IT ads? For someone such as myself who has always avoided anything even remotely resembling athletic competition or exertion they were something I registered then disregarded. Just do it? Yeah sure, whatever, now pass the vodka and chips please. A little while ago I wrote about the universe as a ...
