Apple Picking with the Girls

Wendy was invited to go on a winery tour with some friends on the Saturday of Thanksgiving weekend. I don’t drink wine (as it is a migraine trigger), but I do love to cook with wine. However, I didn’t feel me going on a wine tour would make any sense. So, Wendy and I decided to divide and conquer. She goes on the wine tour,...

A Tough Day As A Parent

Yesterday was one of those days that scared me as a parent. I had to be at a work event in Toronto at Ontario Place. Because Wendy leaves for work at 6am, and I had to be in Toronto for 8am, I had arranged to drop the girls off at my parents around 6:45am, so that my Dad could take them to the bus stop...
