Ever wonder where you find the time?
I've got so much going on right now especially with this new dragonboat team that I'm finding things are falling behind. I mean, I just remembered I had a blog this weekend. I've been doing a lot of online shopping in the last little while. I had previously...

I still love ukulele, I really do
But I have so much trouble leaving the house once I get home from work. It doesn't help that I was up at 5:15 this morning to work out, then headed straight to work where I hit my 10,000 step target at 10:42 this morning. After work I went straight to the c...

School starts in 6 days
Summer is nearly over. In fact, there's already a chill in the air (and in my heart) just thinking about it. But I don't want to be negative. So here are 10 things I'm looking forward to in the coming months. My leopard print Snuggie New tv season knitting ...

Loving the Olympics
I've been watching Olympic coverage since 1976 when Nadia Comaneci got 10s on the uneven parallel bars. But more than the amazing feats of strengths, I love the stories of athletes with amazing hearts. -Like the 2 runners that got caught up in each other's ...

Doesn't everyone swear in French Canadian when they get hurt? So while skydiving bungee jumping okay fine  towelling off Friday, I tweaked my back. And by tweaked, I mean fucked it up real bad. After crying naked on the bathroom floor a while, feeling sorry...
