Pokemon, where have you gone to? – Part 2

If you find yourself at a dead stop behind a non-moving vehicle in the middle of parking lot, there's a good chance the operator of the vehicle is playing Pokemon Go. This happened to me and my son the other day. The woman was staring down into her lap, obviously trying to hide something, her … Continue reading Pokemon, where have you gone to? – Part 2

My Adventures in Pokemon Go – Part 1

"Mom, slow down. I need to get some progress on my egg." No, we're not farmers. These are the words of my son when we're playing Pokemon Go. Okay, and we're cheating. Just a little. We're in our car and we should be walking or biking. You see if you move too fast, your egg … Continue reading My Adventures in Pokemon Go – Part 1

I take my title of this post from the movie Sliding Doors with Gwyneth Paltrow. Seen it? I saw the movie many moons ago and actually watched it again when I thought of writing this post. Silly me. It's a lighthearted romance/fantasy movie made long before Gwyneth uttered those misguided statements about motherhood. Here's Gwyneth in her … Continue reading Sliding Door Moments
