On quitting your day job.

May 31, 2009

You would think taking a zip line across a mountain canyon would be more frightening than finding the Moth Man. But it wasn’t. You would also think letting someone hold you and tell you he’ll be around for years, not months, would spark that bitterly familiar fear of love. But it hasn’t. There are no […]

Meet the Bear

May 28, 2009

A few weeks ago, or was it months? my ex offered, or did I ask? to take Benjamin two nights a week instead of one. For several weeks he upheld his new commitment, enjoying every extra moment with his son until on week four he told me he was tired. I understood. It’s hard. This […]

Unexpected reality

Thanks

May 26, 2009

I announced last week that I’m leaving my day job to become a full-time blogger/freelancer.  I also announced the sale of our  new leaf necklace.  There are only 40 left.  I will be ordering another round so don’t worry about them running out. And I’ll also try to make them in silver. Ideally I’d like to, […]

Over the Edge

May 21, 2009

Ever felt like you just want to dive off a mountain top? No? I hadn’t either.  That was until I spent three days straight with Nolan and Benjamin, two adorable three-year-olds who, when together, can’t stop beating on each other. Like a cosmic formula Kristin and I’s sons had it out for each other during […]

The non-date, that wasn’t

May 19, 2009

I hate weddings.  I do. I looked up at my little sister. I had my wedding dress bunched up around my thighs and I was squatting on the toilet in my aunt’s house.  “Don’t ever do this.”  Getting married, the actual wedding part, was actually painful for me. Maybe it was because I was marrying […]

This Place

May 17, 2009

We were right. Kristin and I had this feeling about each other, that we’d get along like no other and it’s true. She took this picture of Benjamin and I at the park on Kit’s Beach in Vancouver. I am now going to stop blogging and become a model for some mommy magazine. [Seriously – […]
