Plans to give you hope and a future

Three weeks have passed since I had a D&C. Though our baby was already an angel, physically loosing our Sweet Pea was hard. We were fortunate to have a wonderful OB, a Navy man with a gentle spirit and a kind smile. He was generous with the narcotics post-op and gave us no cause for…

The Honeymooners, Chapter Uno!

We did it. We got married, went on a great honeymoon, and have are slowly settling into our new life together. It was on the boat ride away from the small rainforest/fishing village we honeymooned in that I told Q, mid-chuckle, “This is going to make a hilarious blog one day.” He nodded vigorously (or…

The Piano Man

I had all of the starts of a  terrible, horrible,  no good, very bad day on May 18th (if you picked up on that literary reference, your childhood was awesome).  Somehow I had managed to break my car key IN HALF, thus locking all of my tools for work in my car. Now, when you…

The white owl and the Trampage

The last week has been I.N.S.A.N.E. After my last post about Sugar Baby, the little Maltese Aly and I found on the freeway, momentum has been non-stop. If we are going to be honest, the vortex started before that. Life is both nutty and wonderful.  A couple of months ago Aly, Kate and I took…

You are so very valuable!

First of all, I would like to say a big, fat thank you to you guys! I made a deal with myself at the beginning of this silly blog that if I made it to 25 posts with any margin of success, I would purchase my domain for the site. Well, The Art of the…

The Art of the Start Over

My girlfriend told me today about a friend of hers that just broke up with her boyfriend of seven years. They had started dating right out of high school and this poor girl was devastated by the concept of starting her life over as an adult.  After the break up she had literally gone on…

P.S. Mr. Nice Guy.

My friend Kevin summed up the Nice Guy confusion after the last post in one very clear thought, “… He is just befuddled by the ungodly Douchery of the men she does date especially when combined with the constant ‘I wish I could meet a *good* man’ bullshit.” Well, Kev, that door does seem to…

There is a right way and a wrong way…

I have had a few people tell me that they have been inspired by my big break up last year and have since dumped their mates in search of the dating bliss I have found. This is honestly one of the most horrifying things I have ever heard. While I am flattered (and somewhat mystified) that…

Birthdaypalooza!

December 7th was a great night. We kicked off birthday celebrations with a rowdy game of hockey (the Ontario Reign won, obviously) and the migrated to Toby Keith’s Bar and Grill for dancing and drinks. My dad and I did some awesome dance moves. By awesome I probably mean that they should have stayed in the…
