Soccer Mom, Golf Widow & Laundry Ninja in search of a quieter potato chipWhen my kids were small, my favourite phrase of theirs was "I love you Mummy" but now that they're teens it's "How did you find that out?"  My personal motto is "Be The Person Your Dog Thinks You Are" and that's mostly because my dog thinks I'm obviously the Smart Human who knows where the kibble is kept.

About me: 
I live on the gorgeous West Coast of Canada, in BC. If I can't see a mountain or the ocean from wherever I am, I tend to go into panic mode. I've been working for YMC since 2010 and I have to say I have the best.. job... evah...
About my kids: 
My husband (aka-“The Golfinator”) and I have two kids, Pitch and Putt. I could sit here and write about 2,376 adjectives to describe them right now, ranging in all sorts of emotion from “awesome” to “frustrating” but haven’t been allotted enough space for that. My kids are the reason behind every… single… thing… that my husband & I do. They are our motivation and our reward, our reminder of the preciousness of life and our greatest accomplishment. Except maybe for that time we power washed the entire driveway and sidewalk. Love my kids. ‘Nuff said.
Parenting is...: 
The biggest, bestest task I have ever taken on. Am still searching for the user’s manual. I got 3 manuals when I got my car, but after my first baby I got a birth registration form and a package of very expensive photos.
We know you don't have a lot, but when you do, what do you like to do in your spare time?: 
I had to re-read that because I thought it said “spare tire”. Kinda personal don’tcha think? In my spare time, I like to read (both online and actual books), kinda addicted to reading everything listed in my Google reader each day, and go for long walks with the dawg. If my kids are around we like to take off to the local beach or if the weather’s cruddy, take in a movie at the theatre. My whole family curls in the winter (yes, with brooms and everything) and I row in the summer. In a boat. :)
When are you at your yummiest?: 
When I learn something new. I’m a bit of a tech geek and nerd (it’s a gift) and I’m always on the looking for expanding my brain. Like there’s any room in there right now. Once I’ve mastered the art of something new tech-wise, just try and stop me from convincing anyone within earshot of how fabulous it is and how I and only I can do it the best. Throw a bottle of Riesling in the mix and you’ll have a hard time shutting me up.
If someone wrote a biography about you, what would be the title?: 
This Is Not A Test
What's currently in your purse?: 
Wallet, phone, gum, notebook, 7 Lego bricks, 2 hair ties and 14 pens. Okay, maybe not 2 hair ties. That’s kinda unnecessary.
What superhero power would you like to have?: 
If I didn’t say the power to fly here, my family would smack me upside the head. I need to be able to fly because a) I’m actually afraid of flying in airplanes but I’d probably be ok if it was just me with an amazing pink cape; and b) I’m always LATE!
If we gave you an elephant, where would you hide it?: 
Well, behind the neighbour’s house obviously! Duh…
