Mira Kirshenbaum’s The Weekend Marriage is a relationship self-help book that helps busy couples find the time to reconnect when they have only a few hours a week together. Employing common sense techniques that remind couples to put the same importance on their relationships as they do on their jobs, and their children. The book felt very timely, as part of a couple wherein both of us work full time and we have obligations to our children. She offers examples and anecdotes, as is usual for self help books, and she also offers what she calls “guerrilla tactics”, which are sort of no-holds barred ways to reconnect, including taking sick days for your relationships. Some of the advice is helpful, and some is not for everyone, but that is the case with all self-help books. I recommend this book more as a reminder to put your significant other first and to take the time you need. 256 pages

Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
