No book, wedding plans and co-habitiation.

November 8, 2010

Up until moving in together John spent quite a bit of time in his bachelor pad. He’d leave in the evenings often to get some breathing space at his own place. And he was never around in the mornings, not wanting Benjamin to see him waking up in my bed. So, naturally, I expected us […]

Tisk. Tisk.

May 24, 2010

While he was in the midst of folding towels tonight I remembered the first time John had attempted to help me with laundry. He had offered and I had agreed – reluctantly. And then, in my true defensive and self-protective fashion, I snapped something at him like, “you’re not folding them tight enough. Just let […]

At the start

April 13, 2010

I have been so wrapped up in my own happiness lately – with my work, with John, with Benjamin (and not necessarily in that order, fluctuates with the day or more often, the time of day) – that I have lost sight of why I started this blog in the first place. A few weeks […]

Never say never

Butterflies vs. Lead Weights

February 21, 2010

Earlier this weekend a single mom girlfriend of mine was telling me about a recent nice guy she’s dating who pampers her with dinners, gifts, nice words and kind actions but there’s something missing. “I just don’t feel the butterflies,” she said. And while this guy may not be a keeper, I still had to […]

Holidaze

December 28, 2009

John and I survived our first holidays together, but not without some growing pains. Our relationship is moving into another territory. I go back and forth between being completely freaked out by the idea of commitment to completely embracing of whatever the future brings. We were talking about it one night, about 2010 and what […]

Love

November 2, 2009

Check it out, our sixth and final Ford Fiesta Mission. I had to get someone to play the part of a celebrity. Little did I know he was right under my nose. Zappos.com for the lovely price of $119.95.[Full disclosure: I bought these myself and I just love them. I share products that are out […]

Man things (and a video)

September 30, 2009

When I first started dating John Bear his dog drove me crazy. Every time I would come over Murphy would jump on me, scratching my bare legs with his thick doggy claws and if he wasn’t jumping he was panting and staring at me, all the while emitting a subtle doggy smell. When I put […]

A messy business

September 13, 2009

“Are those poop bags in your pockets again?” I see the top of a bright blue plastic bag sticking out of his shorts. “I always come prepared,” he says. Always is right. John Bear is seldom without a poop bag or two sticking out of his cargo short pockets. I’m always telling him to stick […]

Ms. Summer

August 30, 2009

I will miss you with your hot, sultry ways and your wicked sense of humor. I’ll especially miss your ability to occupy my son for hours on end, you’re awesome that way.
