I went under the knife again last week. It is amazing that once you’ve made the decision to do something how unprepared you tend to be.

I am contemplating moving to Vancouver, British Columbia. It was originally Los Angeles, California, but the thought of giving up Canadian residency and moving four young children to the United States scares the hell out of me.

I kept three of my four children home from school with fevers and coughing, thinking “Wow, I’m such a great mom, the kids get rest and I’m a hero because I didn’t send them off to infect other children.” Big mistake! By the end of the day, I had started coughing and I crawled into […]
