I'd like to know why and when authors use pen names. The recent activity on SheWrites about Twitter Handles has me thinking about changing my twitter name from @mydustbunnies (linked to the name of…Continue
"Astra, read your blog this morning--your bio is hilarious! I share the 3 kid placement, but a bit younger, 7, 10, 12, and we are brand new to water polo, so I feel I'm looking at my future. Survived watching the littlest in his first match…"
Though I am a 47-year old human resources professional, my better work is as a wife and maniacal hockey mom of three great minor league goalies (15 yo and 14 yo boys and an 11 yo girl). I am currently breathing zamboni fumes in Ottawa, Ontario. A dash of sarcasm and and a shot of chardonnay will get me through writing a hockey momoir (...someday).

Just my blog...
but an article of mine did appear in The Ottawa Citizen in April 2009; I've had posts on the Yummy Mummy Club and The Momoir Project and you would not believe how good I'm getting at creating hockey tournament write-ups!
Astra, read your blog this morning--your bio is hilarious! I share the 3 kid placement, but a bit younger, 7, 10, 12, and we are brand new to water polo, so I feel I'm looking at my future. Survived watching the littlest in his first match without saying much (can't say same for the husband)...no, I was busy hoping my son wouldn't drown. Love your savvy wit...
Hi Astra - I enjoyed your morning blog. I am a retired hockey mom who truly misses the cold arenas and the terrible coffee. I'm not addicted to Tim's - it's okay. I prefer a large Americano. Starbucks is fine but expensive. My best cups of java were served in London, England. I thought the English made tea, but they really know how to make a great cup of tea.
I really enjoyed your blog on the noisemakers, especially your husband's "conversation" with the border patrol guys. Ha! Best of luck to your teams. Not much of a sports fan, but I love your enthusiasm. :)

Today, Saturday Short presents a sand mandala of the deity Chakrasamvara, created by Lama Karma Tenzin at the Rubin Museum in New York City. It took Lama Karma more than two weeks to create the artwork and just two minutes to destroy it.…See More
