A Few Birthday Party Ideas

Preface: If you are someone like a certain unnamed coworker of mine…okay, I’ll just say it, it’s Krista…then these ideas will seem pretty simple and, well, lame to you. That is why she has promised me that she will share her repertoire of kids’ party themes (she always ensures that the decorations, games, loot bag […] Read more…

Sex and the City 2: My Review

Here’s my review in a nutshell: I liked it. I’d say the the first one was better, probably because the Abu Dhabi locale didn’t do anything for me (I much prefer the NYC setting), and the Carrie/Big wedding drama was so intense in the original, but the sequel was still enjoyable. Think of it this way: when you […] Read more…

Spring Closet Makeovers

Guess what I did on Victoria Day? Organized closets! Fun, eh? It all started when we realized that we were running out of room in our kitchen. The food cupboards were packed to overflowing, and you had to be careful when opening a door that you weren’t hit in the head with a falling bag […] Read more…

I’m A Feng Shui Failure

In  the staff room the other day, a couple of teachers were discussing Feng Shui, and on way back to class one of my colleagues suggested it would make a good post topic for my blog…so this is for you, J! (Although I’m not touching the whole ‘hammer-under-the-bed-for-fertility’ thing.) I have to warn you that some of my points will […] Read more…

Is Your Child Ready For Kindergarten? (Are You?)
