1. Called off a wedding.
2. Sowed my wild oats (I did this rather thoroughly).
3. Quit smoking.
4. Went back to school.
5. Asked out Big Papa.
6. Moved to Toronto.
7. Convinced Big Papa to buy our house.
8. Married Big Papa.
9. Went to Mexico when we were 6 months pregnant to stock up on R&R.
10. Paid off all debt.
11. Became a mother.
12. Quit my job.
13. Started blogging.
What are you really glad you did?
My mom is in town this week. I’ve been a little down between my existential crisis and being sick for two weeks (I have a dr. appt tomorrow and I’m not leaving until he hooks me up with some antibiotics) so BP and I decided to go out for a nice dinner.
We went to a local favourite, Barrio, for tapas and wine. The food was amazing and it’s such a cozy, welcoming place. The only slight mar in the experience was the guy sitting at the bar who had THE LOUDEST VOICE EVER. You know the type—he’s fucking loud and he just won’t shut up. In my opinion, you can only be loud if you’re both smart and funny. We have a good friend like this—with each glass of wine, he gets louder and more funny. His speech gets impassioned (I goad him by bringing up political subjects) and he punctuates his statements with big booming words like FUNDAMENTALLY, punctuated by a slap on his knee. I love this kind of loud--the guy at the bar…not so much.
Anyway, the great food and wine was a great way to ease into our new hump day regimen . So far, it is a big success. Will keep you updated.
