Welcome To My Blog!

Being a hockey mom just BEGS to be written about so when my daughter strapped on the goalie pads, I picked up the pen. Now I blog rink-to-rink keeping the world of youth hockey real AND real funny.

Through the highs, the lows and the all consuming stink, follow me on my journey to get through each season. Us hockey parents have to stick together!

Writing is a Dangerous Sport

Like other writers I have a habit of coming up with ideas in the oddest places at the oddest times. You know, like in the shower, in the car, in the middle of the night, during a parent/teacher conference or a boring meeting. It's usually at a highly inconvenient time when I am not able to fully realize the thought. That's why I carry a small notebook. 

Because if I don't write it down, it never happened.

I was explaining my "process" to a colleague who does not write and I am proud to say that I only interrupted her twice to jot down a good idea. When I was finished she looked me dead in the eye and said "So you are endangering the lives of others with your writing?"

Of course referring to me jotting a quick note down in my notebook while driving. I tried to explain that I try to only do it at stoplights but I wasn't sure was convinced. 

Either that or she was somehow implying that my words were endangering others.
