I'm Nadine. Thanks for stopping by. The floors are creaky, the kids are loud, but the door's always open and the coffee's always on.

Make yourself at home.

Highs and Lows

This week's low: Being locked out of the house — without a phone or a computer. 

I was almost home from the dentist on Wednesday — looking forward to an empty house, since Matthew and Ursula were downtown running some errands — when I realized that I didn't have a house key. And my phone had 2% battery life.

I didn't know when my family would be home. I couldn't work on the articles due that afternoon.


This week's high: Being locked out of the house — without a phone or a computer. 

I bought a cheap notebook at a nearby convenience store, bought a coffee — eventually: two — and a cookie at my favourite haunt, quickly texted Matthew to swing by the coffee shop on his way home since my phone was thisclose to dying, and brainstormed on paper until he and Sully came to my rescue.

Unplugging for two hours was exactly what I needed.

Sometimes your low can turn into your high.
