So last night Mark and I had a date. It was lovely. We had dinner at Nicastro’s on Wellington (if you haven’t gone, GO, and don’t forget to order the calamari). We walked around the ‘hood and poked our heads into a furniture store, and then went home to watch a movie. (It was Syriana. Don’t ask me if I understood it.)

The girls are still my in-laws. Mark is playing golf. And I’m listening to the radio and catching up on laundry.

It’s a good day today.

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our two daughters Emma (16) and Sarah (14). I am the managing editor of our community newspaper, the Kitchissippi Times, and a regular contributor to MediaSmarts.ca. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger, and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999... which makes me either a total dinosaur or a veteran, I'm not sure which! The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
