posted Monday, February 9, 2015

by: in From the Editor

I hate to admit it but I watch The Bachelor. Yes, I know what you’re thinking. How can you watch that show?  Followed by, you know, it’s scripted and not reality TV, right?  I don’t know why I am hooked on the show, it grew on me a couple of seasons ago when I came across it whilst flipping channels, and […]

Happy New Year Everyone! 2014 has come and gone, and we’re already a few days into 2015. I have a few goals in mind — and yes some of them are the typical ones that people make during this time of year — but I figure, a new year is an obvious time to take […]

posted Friday, December 5, 2014

by: in From the Editor

What?? Camping in December? Who camps in December?? Well, there are some people who do camp during the winter months, and some people who I know might like to (for instance, my husband), but that’s just not my thing. And truth be told, I am really not “camping” in December, but it feels pretty close to it. You see, […]

I find that after summer, there’s “back to school” season, then comes Thanksgiving, then Halloween and before you know it, we’re in November.

It’s October 1st and Thanksgiving will soon be around the corner. I don’t know about you, but every year in my family, the question, “so what are you thankful for this year?” gets asked.  My usual response is that I am thankful for my family, my husband, my son and yes, even my feisty cat.

by: in From the Editor

Summer is almost over. At least that’s what it feels like whenever Labour Day weekend comes around each year. The mass exodus of cars jam packed on the 401 eastbound into Durham right now confirms this too. But then again, if you live in Durham, you know that every Friday evening (and sometimes Saturday morning) […]

by: in From the Editor

A baby can teach you a lot of things. For instance, the other day, I learned the lesson of dealing with circumstances in life that are out of my control. Allow me to elaborate. A baby sleeps, eats, poops and cries when it wants to. Your life revolves around your baby. This means that you […]

Do you ever feel like you never have enough time in a day to do all the things you want to do? I’ve been feeling like that of late. I recently had a baby and time is something that I don’t have a lot of nowadays. The laundry piles up, the sink gets full of […]

I love to write, yet sitting down to write my first blog post for The Local Biz website had me stumped—for a long while! I kept putting off the task as much as I could. I realized though, the longer I put it off, the harder it would be to motivate myself to write it. […]
