Coucou, anyone out there?
Oui?
Salut, les amis! Thanks for hanging in there. I know, I know. I promised you words & images almost two years ago! TWO. YEARS. They don’t lie about time flying as you get older. (You know how I loved me some mixed metaphors.)
Believe it or not I had pure […]

I am hanging onto my last shreds of sanity. Part of me wishes that I documented these past few months of ridiculousness; but mostly, I want to hit . Erase, erase, erase all that stress and exhaustion!
Despite all the doom and gloom, there were many bright glimmers of joy. My relationship is no longer […]

It’s hard getting back into the saddle. What saddle? Why, the vanity blogging saddle, of course!
Dave (and others *cough* mum *cough*) like to tease me about they way I set priorities, but look who is laughing now! Ha! Actually, I’m not sure that I’m laughing all that much. I honestly love the work I […]

Two posts in a day! So close together! ‘Twas fun telling my consumption tales. Much more fun than complaining about the fact that Dave’s luggage has likely been lost for good thanks to bumbling airline employees dotted all around the world! Ten days worth of his favourite clothes etc. and a borrowed Jack […]

Mon amour, known by some as “tonton Boston”, is currently enjoying the comforts (haha) of economy class on an American airline. Sadly, he’s not coming to visit me. Happily, he is making his way to the city of lights to show the project he and a few colleagues have worked on non-stop for several months, […]

Many thanks for the heartfelt words of support. ♥
I know that I say this almost everytime but I’ve been extremely busy. There’s a lot on my mind including evil articling applications that are due next Friday. That’s right. I’m applying for jobs that will define my entrance into the legal profession. Jobs that commence over […]

Where to begin? Time seems to be travelling so fast right now. This morning, while engrossed in my book, I almost missed my subway stop. Sometime earlier in the ride I realised that I had forgotten to take a transfer–my proof of payment for the later change to streetcar. Rush, rush, rush.
It’s a rush […]

Enough bitching and moaning. All that whinging was tiring me out. There’s still plenty of work to do, but none of my cranky sarcastic remarks or complaints will the process any easier. Sleep does help, though! Even though I hit the sack late last night, Sandman treated me well. I’m all rejuvenated and ready to […]

There is way too much going on and it’s going on around me. I’m not making anything go. It’s frustrating.
Thankfully, David and I are continuing bliss week together here in Toronto. We had a grand time in Montreal (mostly Repentigny to be exact) laughing and loving the new addition to the family. Since Dave’s […]

Lovely lantern ladies paying tribute to the new addition to our world!*
Félicitations aux parents, Lydia et Joël! Bienvenue Arno Jazz!
I’m off to Montreal for the weekend to see my almost-nephew, le petit Arno** qu’il est superbeau! The little guy was born last week after lots of hard work by maman Lydia.
I had the […]
