I just watched the Netflix show “The Good Place” three times. Yes, all 13 episodes, three times. Once by myself, once with my kids, and then we all watched it again when my husband got home from a business trip. I could sing praises from the rooftops: the original script, superb acting, directing, editing, cinematography, […]

I think this concept of “giving” becoming “getting” has seeped into all major North American holidays. Valentines, Christmas, even Easter has been narrowed down to a list of what you need to buy, who gets what and everything YOU hope to get. Thanksgiving is one of the strangest times for me because A) Turkey makes […]

by: in Humour in Life and Business

When I first had children, it was an absolute honour to be spoiled with gifts and flowers and to hear those words that made me feel special: “Happy Mother’s Day!” When the kids started going to school and came home with handmade gifts, it brought me to tears and I can’t thank teachers enough for […]

It’s a daunting task, but if there’s one thing this writer needs in order for her to finish her work, it’s a deadline! And I have quite the deadline: this summer’s Toronto Fringe Festival! I am taking my one-woman show (a musical romp through plastic surgery) to the festival, but after talking with a few […]

Why mom told you to “Think before you speak!”

posted Wednesday, March 29, 2017

by: in Humour in Life and Business

I am one of those people who ends up with my foot in my mouth because I don’t often follow this sage advice from dear old mom.  However, I’m also considered a quick wit, saying things that delightfully surprise even me. The concept of “think before you speak” is, in theory, a good one. Taking a […]

I am a mom that highly encourages the arts for my kids. Yes, we have signed them up for pretty much every sport and only baseball seemed to stick for a few of them, but when it came time for the arts, we had better luck…and they started making money! Dance and music classes were […]

My one-woman show called “Am I Pretty Now?”: A Musical Romp Through Plastic Surgery was accepted into a festival in New York city this past September. The problem? I hadn’t written it yet! I had just taken a weekend workshop with my good friend, and queen of one-person shows, Anne Marie Scheffler and I had […]

When did you stop your Christmas wish list?

posted Sunday, October 16, 2016

by: in Humour in Life and Business

This past week was Thanksgiving, and my children have been working on their Christmas wish lists for about three weeks now. I remember that anxious cry, “When is it coming? When will I grow up? I can’t wait until I’m older!” I remember the endless hours of pouring over the pages and pages of toys […]

The Mom Formula

by: in Humour in Life and Business

And then, it was over. That unbearably hot summer has shifted to the cool mornings where I’m forcing my kids to wear sweatshirts on their way to school, as they protest, shivering, “I’m f-f-f-ine!” I am now in a quiet and peaceful house and suddenly it hits me, I don’t have enough time in the […]
