    I slept in the bed alone last night. I thought it was going to be glorious. I’d put my iPad on the bed with a show playing on it like I used to, I’d sleep on the lefthand side like I use to, and the girls would join me like they used to. It started…

    A year ago today, I picked up Genevieve and Eloise. They had different names, Wynonna and Loretta, respectively. I wanted French names, not ones that sounded like characters in a Western. Genevieve is named after a passing fancy from my university days. Eloise because it’s just a lovely name.

    Is there a difference between a productive day and a busy day? I think I had a productive day today but it didn’t feel so busy. Yesterday, I felt busy but not productive. I think it all comes down to having a schedule.

    Riel’s first walk outside in downtown Toronto

    Eventually, I’d like for us to be able to stroll casually through a wooded ravine. The concrete pavement just outside the doors of my apartment building will have to do for now. Riel has been moaning a lot lately so I thought that getting him outside might help. The balcony just isn’t big enough or…

    The Desk Chair

    Not too long ago, I purchased a new desk chair. I made sure to spend some money on one that I think will last a long time and will match the colour scheme I’m aiming for. And, it hasn’t disappointed. In fact, it’s better than I expected.

    Letting Sh*t Go

    I woke up with vomit on the duvet. It was over my feet so I knew that it wasn’t mine because I haven’t done yoga in nearly ten years. Riel had curled up in between my legs, slightly higher up on the bed than where he had emptied his stomach. It was only a few…
