Trying to remember to take baby day at a time!
Interests: blues, classical, writing, interests: reading, spending time with my friends and my family. i have the bestest husband, and the world's most beautiful children. (i have to say that ) Favorite music: jazz, anything rat-pack-ish. i don't like a lot of modern music (ex. rap) but i can appreciate that art form and talent that it takes to perform. Favorite movies: african queen, the original willie wonka and the chocolate factory and all of the star trek movies. Favorite books: i don't think i can pick just one, but my copy of The Stand has been replaced several times.

A recent blurb on CBC about Gabourey Sidibe got under my skin. Listen, I know that physically she is not what the entertainment world would normally pick to be on the cover of all the "in" magazines. Yes I know... Continue reading

On this work schedule, I see very little of anyone. I don't see my friends, my children, but most of all, I don't get to see my husband. This schedule is very un-family-friendly. Add to that his ever changing work... Continue reading
