Permanent or Removable.....that is the question!

So, I have had a few days to reflect on this being 39 thing, and I think I am pretty excited! I am about to enter a totally new phase of my life and this is scary and crazy and wonderful.

I think it is apropos that my last year of my 30’s will be met with much great fanfare and celebration all year long. It is after all the 10th anniversary of the Good Noise Vancouver Gospel Choir and as such we have some AMAZING concerts and events happening this year!

I have decided that this year will be much like the one that ushered in my 30’s with lots of self reflection, being kind to myself and treating myself they way I should be treated! Thankfully this time I will be doing it with someone I love very deeply by my side!

One of the things I have been thinking about it the desire to let go but not forget the lessons I have learned! Life has not always been kind to me; I have had some pretty shitty stuff happen in my life so far. Please don’t take this as any form of Woe is me…just a fact. Life has also been pretty incredible so don’t think I haven’t seen all the amazing!

I want to take a moment however to recognize the strength, courage, tenacity, patience and fight it has taken for me to overcome some pretty significant obstacles. I am not sure I would have these qualities in my life if it were not for those situations and for that I celebrate each and every one of those dark moments.

I am made up of the moments that have preceded this one and for that I never want to forget the road I have wandered and the lessons that I have learned along the way. I have been thinking about how to honour this and have decided that I will treat myself.

The hard choice for me now is how? I love the idea of the string around the finger to remind you not to forget.

 I am weighing the options and have come down to buying myself a ring or getting a tattoo. I love this ring:




But then I love the idea of making it permanent! Here are a few ideas….I love the one on the wrist but would do it either on my pointer or thumb.





What do you think??

Continued adventures in dating.....

Good Morning readers!

All three of you!

I know you are chomping at the bit to hear all about my wild and crazy adventures in babysitting uh online dating.

Well for the most part it seems to be a wash out.   I will talk with some interesting guys and it seems good and then POOOOFF...they are gone.   I suspect its because i don't jump on the hey come F^&* me train fast enough?   Either that or my busy schedule doesn't work for them.   For the most part thought its just dudes looking for nookie!

Don't get me wrong, it hasn't all been bad, I have talked to some really nice guys but so far it hasn't turned in to much.   But let me tell you about one experience I had last night.

I have seen this guys profile on a couple of different sites - he uses the same three lame pictures which were taken one right after the other and then describes how amazing he is in the context of the stuff he has and what he has accomplished.  He is kind of cute.. i guess...in a bit of a we…

A Waste of Good Underwear....

Or alternatively…How I got stood up Once, Uh twice, WAIT Three times in one week!
Well....
To say that this week has been disappointing is an understatement.   I have to say about midweek last week I was feeling pretty on top of the pile.   I had dates lined up all the way until Thursday of the next week with some nice gentleman,I had dropped some more weightI had worn an old amazing pair of jeans and looked good!!I had nailed some tricky harmoniesI was learning 2 languages at the same time!I had made a new group of friends in Rome online (yes mom I am being safe and there are girls!), one of whom is a single, gorgeous Italian guy who wants to take me for Aperativo     and a night walk through some of the fountains in Rome! So you know feeling pretty good!

Then Sunday came….I was supposed to go for Coffee with  uhm lets call him Dutch we have been talking for a few months now.  I was actually surprised he got the nerve up to actually ask to meet.     I was supposed to be in Surrey but…

A little follow up to yesterdays post.....

I have a lot to be thankful for...and you know it I wanted to take this time to sit down and say thank you to a few key people who really helped me out over this last really really hard year!

2011 was filled with pain for me and I have to say I was pretty glad to see it in my rear view mirror! Right off the bat, I experienced a devastating diagnosis of an issue with my brain. I was terrified and pained by the emotional toll of what it would all mean. The physical pain of the symptoms, and the psychological fear that came with not knowing what was happening. I was so worried I would end up being a huge burden on my husband.

Throughout all this my friends and family were really supportive and helped me get better! So thank you! The hugest of all to my loving husband who put up with my tears, my inability to get out of bed and for keeping our household together!!

It was hard to keep work, health, school, volunteering and my commitments under control, I was slammed....all thin…
