Shoutout to Asha, my beautiful girl, thanks for making me your mom. There’s nothing I would rather do than to keep loving and taking care of you. Happy Mother’s Day to me and to all mothers. Keep up the good work. Dylan was on the road yesterday so Mother’s Day for me is today. It’s my first day off since forever and I’m thrilled. I don’t know where to start, I almost don’t even know what to do. Let the games begin. One, two, three, fun! All my love to everyone.

I blinked and now you’re 4. You are very sweet and so beautiful, what a joy you are. Hope your day was perfect. Happy birthday, Asha!
Happy Many Days
Happy many days after Valentine’s Day to my favourite Player 2. I’m outlandishly preposterously late but what else is new. Still thankful and so glad I get to play the game with you. You are the shit, too legit to quit and I am here for it. Thanks for all you are, thank you for all you do. I love you. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Winter Concert Potluck
Asha’s last day of school was on Wednesday and the following morning we had a Winter Concert Potluck. Dylan sadly couldn’t be there but auntie Ngoc and auntie Natasha and uncle Jan all came through. Asha calls Jan uncle daddy and she talks about him a lot. The kids performed some special songs with varying degrees of success. All of it was precious.

Hi, it’s my birthday and it’s also Thanksgiving long weekend in Canada. Thanksgiving is the day all of Canada is thankful I was born lol. It’s my birthday again in four days, remember, I have 2 birthdays. The reason for the 2 birthdays is to give everyone twice the chance to celebrate me. Ha ha. Yay. I’m so lucky. Happy birthdays to me!
Here’s to 17
To my wonderful husband. You are the best and greatest. You’re the very nicest part of my whole life besides Asha. Here’s to 17 years, look at us here, mere babes in the woods, we’ve come so far and still going strong. We’re gonna break all the love records (though I think Heather’s grandparents just celebrated 60 years so we still have a ways to go lol) but I am confident that we’ll make it through, I have faith in us, I really do, I think if anyone can do it, it’s me and you. I love you so much. Happy anniversary!
Out celebrating a good friend’s 40th. We love you, uncle Dave!
You are a marvelous human being. Feather and Daisy are lucky to have you as their pack leader, Asha is lucky to have you as her daddy, I’m lucky to have you in my life, it’s a joy and an honour to be your wife. Thank you for everything you are, thank you for all that you do. You are the best. I love you.
All This Again
I’m about to undergo major dental surgery, I have to get another bone graft, unfortunately, since the previous procedure was successful, but there was further bone loss. Last time I had both a bone graft and a sinus lift and the operation was brutal. The healing afterward was even worse. I thought about pain and suicide, not so much that I was going to kill myself, but about people enduring such persistent perpetual pain they saw suicide as the only way to end it. I can’t believe I have to go through all this again. Fuck. Thoughts and prayers, friends, thanks.
Couldn’t Save You
It really fucks me up to know you’re gone. You were family and not just a friend. I’m sorry we weren’t there to help you or save you in the end. Rest easy, Nej.
I Cut Myself
I cut the shit out of my finger this morning, spent 3 hours in Urgent Care and got 4 stitches. Now the finger in question is all useless and hurts like a motherfucker, I’m 2 finger typing, it’s uncomfortable, and it blows. Hello Wednesday!
The Best Day
Mother’s Day is the best day of the year, change my mind! Happy Mother’s Day to all you beautiful mothers. You know who you are. Happy Mother’s Day to anyone who has done, is doing, or wants to do mothering of any kind. Thank you for your service.

Everything She Likes
For Asha’s birthday, we filled the day up doing everything she likes. Dylan took her to the library where she ran wild and then they went grocery shopping where Asha got to get whatever she wanted. She wanted cookies and ice cream and pie. Then we went swimming and Asha was over the moon. Before swimming, Asha gave us an especially peppy version of her we’re going swimming dance. Adonis and Jan kindly stayed back to assemble Asha’s trampoline, we are so lucky and grateful to have helpful and wonderful friends. After swimming, Danny brought Rani over and Tara stopped by with her boys. Chaos ensued and poor Daisy barely made it out alive. Was very nice to have other kids around for Asha but sweet mother of god. Made me appreciate Asha’s preschool teachers who handle twenty 2 to 5-year-olds for several hours every day. We could barely handle four kids for five minutes. Made me appreciate the difference between one child and several. Made me appreciate the difference between having a girl and not boys. Eye opening, to put it mildly. Dylan made Asha’s favourite meal (noodles) and then we ate pie and ice cream, sang Happy Birthday and Asha opened her gifts. She actually found her presents stash a few days early and demanded to open the gifts at once, so she only had the remaining gifts to open on her actual birthday. Asha loved it all. To close the evening off, we brought Asha outside to jump on the trampoline and she just about lost it. The girl was born to jump so the trampoline was a massive hit. Asha loved it so much she paused to walk in a circle and give each individual trampoline pole a kiss. Very amusing and sweet, that girl is just a heartbreaker. Overall a really fun and wonderful birthday. I love celebrating Asha and making her happy, I almost prefer her happiness to my own. Seeing her smile and enjoying herself is the best. I want to have more children so that I can love them with my whole heart and celebrate their special days. Birthdays are so much better with kids, actually almost everything is. Never in a million years did I ever think I’d think this. Asha is such a blessing. She makes life worth whatever sadness, struggle and trouble there is. It’s an absolute joy to love her, take care of her and celebrate her. Happy birthday, Asha!
