CMT sucks, my hands smell great and I’m off English Muffins

I realized that I haven’t updated my blog in 72 days. 72 days – the length of Kim Kardashian’s marriage to “The Hump.” I’m taking this as a sign. I mean ‘c’mon…how often does one’s blog lapse synch up to a celebrity marriage? Over the […]

The Pud, His Nanny and My Memories

The hardest part about death is the realization that you are never, ever, ever going to see that person again. With each day, the gulf between your time together and “now” gets wider. My Mom and Pud were tight. Pud loved sleeping over at my […]

The Ring

  J. and I were practically kids when we got married.  I was 24, he was 23.  We were fresh out of university and living in a zero-room apartment.  Even though we knew we wanted kids, having them seemed to be in a time far, […]

Bringing our kids to the music

“Don’t live your life around the kids – make the kids part of your life.” My hair dude have me this piece of advice when I was pregnant with The Pud. Best piece of parenting advice we’re received. Pud has been everywhere – museums, NHL […]

My Faves of 2012

  2013! Mmmm…I love the fresh, unblemished feeling that comes with a new year! MamaKat (my fave Writer’s Workshop BTW) has prompted us to complete the “Faves of 2012″ template from the Momsmack. As I love filling out questionnaires (seriously…need a census filled out?  I’m your […]

Typical Saturday Morning

I’m awake. Never fails.  A Saturday when I have a jam packed day of errands, meet-ups and grandiose supper plans, my body wakes me up at 5:30AM.  Adrenaline?  Nerves?  Who knows.  But it is freakin’ annoying. I’m just going to lay here and enjoy the […]

My Christmas Resolutions

I love Christmas.  I have always loved Christmas and will continue to love Christmas.  It is my favourite time of the year.  But I have found that the older I get, the more frenzied and stressed I become.  I’m so busy trying to make a memory, I […]

Unvarnished

Thanks to social media, we are able to share every facet our of lives with our friends, family and total strangers. Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, blogs…we have a myriad of ways to share who we are with whomever we choose. I don’t know about you, […]

Answering Amy

Can I just start by saying how much I treasure, love, adore,…hell, live for, comments? Ask any blogger and they will tell you comments are the fuel that keeps their blog flame burning. I still cannot believe anyone other than my Mom reads my natterings. […]

To Test or Not to Test

For J. and I, the decision to not test was made in 2004. My family (parents/sisters and I) went to see a Geneticist to figure out where my CMT came from – my Mom or Dad. To rewind a bit, I was diagnosed with CMT […]

The One Thing I Miss About My Pre-Mom Life

I’ve always wanted to be a Mom. It is the only thing I have ever been 100% certain of. And now, look at me…I’m a Mom! (The Pud is 6 1/2 but the idea that I am a mother still,sometimes, trips me out.) Kat’s Writer’s […]
