The Parent/Teacher Interview

I waited outside of the room for my turn to meet with her teachers. I had a thousand questions about her progress and couldn’t focus on just one. What did she do all day while I was at work? How was her behaviour? Was she learning at the right pace? Did she pay attention? Was…

Making Progress

Since the last post about my weight, where I vowed to do something about it, I have made some progress. I didn’t want to. I knew why I wanted to change my lifestyle but putting that into motion was easier said than done. Chocolate tasted so good. And it really felt like all or nothing to…

Some time last week I caught a cold. It was simple at first, the sniffles, a tiny little ache in my throat, nothing too serious. I could get through it with a little Tylenol and tea. And then all hell broke loose. A monster of a flu/cold/flu surrounded me with its black cloak and called…

My Heartache

She placed her hand gently over mine and sighed. I had no idea what was coming next but was certain it was bad news. I braced myself and looked to her for the words she was having such a hard time getting out. What could be so difficult? Taking a drink from her water she…
