The Challenge of Hosting a December Birthday Party

Sigh! Every year we start off the month with such excitement just for me to end up being stressed, depressed and a bit grumpy. My mood change has nothing to do with the holidays but to do with other parents and their lack of RSVPing to my daughter’s December birthday party. When my daughter wasContinue Reading …

I am a Redhead! Don’t call me Blonde

It is funny how little things can irritate a person. If you are a redhead like me, you will totally get the title of this post. I cherish my hair and love being a redhead. Being a redhead is more than a hair colour. It is a bit part of who I am. I thinkContinue Reading …

Pointing out People’s Differences Makes you Rude

It has been way too long since I wrote a rant on here. I guess that is kind of a good thing, it means nothing too outrageous has been going on. But now it is time, I am a bit grumpy about a recent interaction. I have been beating myself up for the last dayContinue Reading …
