It has been one crazy week (month? Year? Life?) over here, with the main floor as empty as a tomb to make room for restoration.
We have wonderful neighbours that helped us clear out and loaned us their garage as a storage venue for our furniture, and we have this great kid who decided to give his poor ol’ mama and dad a hand.
It turns out that this space is his favourite thing in the world right now! He has been using it as a gym, an Oculus/VR stadium, a quiet place, and the home of the World Famous Potato Roll (don’t worry, no actual potatoes were harmed in the making of the Potato Roll).
Who knew the best way to make an 11 year old happy was to strip the living room of all of its furniture???
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!
