It is beyond painful to watch people you love suffer their own pain.
these days i love my dad. i’m incredibly sorry i surprised him – but years ago, he surprised me, too.
these days i am blessed with friends who recognize red flags, verbalize their concerns and love me anyway. rest easy, i recognize the flags, too.
these days i am so happy for friends and family to join us in town for basketball tournaments and dinner. oakville only seems far away from the city.
these days my freezer is filled with candy cane ice cream in anticipation of chloé’s return from edinburgh. we ran out with chloé and claire home and sadly, fortino’s ran out, too!
these days moe has schooled me on all things “gone with the wind” and i don’t care. she is studying racism as a history major at school. i’m watching the movie as a reflection of it’s time. yep, we’re there.
these days really? he cooks? cleans? bbq’s? does laundry? is the dog whisperer? ahhh. melt. but he also doesn’t close cupboards, leaves the toilet seat up and chews. #lovehimbecauseofandanyway
these days the recent re-education of lee has moved from all things country music to gabor maté and father richard rohr and others. got it. f*ing brilliant!
these days his brother is teaching me about genealogy. turns out there was no “ick” factor to suffer way back when. who knew? and then the “what if” kicks in. heavy sigh. life could have been a whole lot different. that said, i like it how it is now.
these days the logo has been decided and now we’re moving on to web content. this is going to be fun.
these days i’m beyond blessed to have talented friends who work the same way i do. i’ve put together a fantastic team for me personally and they’re bringing it for me professionally. they rock.
these days eating out as much as three times a week appears to be a thing of the past. it is definitely a good choice for my wallet and waistline. time to learn some new recipes.
these days the adultification of my home is underway. i’m looking forward to how it all turns out. it’s going to be almost a complete surprise for me as i test my trust muscle.
these days i’ve become more familiar than i want with the talking heads on cnn. save me. the impeachment process is brutal. glad it’s not my country.
these days i’m excited to go to cape cod next summer and for canadian thanksgiving. hopefully, all of our kids can clear their schedules enough to join us for some of the time.
these days i purchased a condo in toronto as an investment, and as a way for caden to get away from the landlord from hell. it is gorgeous. i can’t wait to get it all pulled together.
You? What are you up to these days?
