I’m so excited to announce the latest in the Castle Mountain Lodge Series… Bo’s always known that to be a successful hiking guide at the beautiful Castle Mountain Lodge, you have to flirt with the ladies-but never get too close; have a penchant for wild adventures-but know when to pull away; and never have any […]

It’s A New Year, So Move It!

Posted Sep 13 2012 in , , , , , , , ,

The best intentions… Last spring I blogged about Ripping Up The Workout Schedule. It was the end of June, I was tired. I’d been following a schedule for so long that nothing was fun anymore. I didn’t want to do any of the workouts I normally enjoyed. I dreaded every trip to the pool. Every […]

Squeezing Out Summer

Posted Aug 23 2012 in , , , , , , , , ,

My kids start school on September fourth! It’s coming up fast. Too fast! Don’t get me wrong, I’ll be ready for the peace and quiet and the uninterrupted writing time that comes with September. BUT… I will miss summer. I love summer. And I love spending time with my kids at the lake. Swimming, playing […]

Running For A Cause: The power of friendship

Posted May 29 2012 in , , , , , , , , , ,

I’m a runner. I’m not particularly fast. I don’t set records or win races. But I’m a runner. And as such, I run for a variety of reasons. Sometimes it’s for fitness. Sometimes it’s just for fun. Sometimes it’s to train for something bigger. Sometimes it’s to be social and catch up with friends. Sometimes […]

When You Just Have To Smile

Posted May 15 2012 in , , , , , ,

I’ll be absent this week. It’s a tough week. And when it’s a tough week, sometimes you just have to smile. A friend of mine sent me this video awhile ago, and apparently it was a Superbowl commercial. (I wouldn’t know as we don’t get the cool commercials in Canada, oh ya, and I’d have […]

Chopped – Monday Night Family Edition

Posted May 8 2012 in , , , , , , , , , ,

Sometimes I’m organized enough to know what I’m going to make for dinner. In fact, there are actual weeks days when I even have a meal plan. I know, crazy idea, right? But lately those days seem so far away and I consider it a success if I remember to pull something out of the […]

Crazy IS the New Normal

Posted Apr 17 2012 in , , , , , , , , , ,

“As soon as things get back to normal, I’ll be able to…” “When things calm down I can…” Have you ever said something like this? I have and I do, all the time! At least I used to. I’ve now decided that there is no such thing as “getting back to normal” or “calming down” […]

Building Balsa Wood Cars and Memories

Posted Mar 6 2012 in , , , , , , ,

School projects! Just the title brings back memories of cardboard cutouts, poster board, markers, and if I was really lucky, a diorama. I LOVED school projects. You know the ones I mean…not the regular homework sheets or spelling lists. No, these were the extra projects where the teacher would hand out a sheet of instructions […]

Proud Pumpkins

Posted Oct 31 2011 in , , , , , , , ,

It’s that time of year again. The day when little ghosts and goblins go running from door to door demanding food. A strange custom for sure, but for the kids, one of the favorites. As for me, I try to muster up some excitement for Halloween, I really do. But try as I might, I […]
