New blog

Posted on June 9, 2011 at 10:12 AM Comments comments (0)

I've started a new blog, one I'll try updating more often.


Feel free to follow me!




2011 has been good to us.

Well, so far.

In January, my fiancé and I decided I was going to quit the pill. My doctor suggested we wait three months before trying to conceive, so that my hormones and system can balance out. I started taking vitamins also.

We decided in mid-March to start trying. Sam's a trucker, always on the road, only home on weekends. We wanted to try every opportunity we had, because what were the odds that we'd get pregnant within the first month of trying?

Odds were good I ...

Christmas is a magical time of year

When I was young, I used to picture myself walking in the streets during a light snow.

I would be wearing a black beret-style hat, with a black and white plaid coat. I would have long dark hair, cascading down my back. Streetlamps would guide me on my journey as I watched the big snowflakes slowly falling from the sky.

In reality? I don't own a plaid coat, hats look horrible on me and I recently chopped my long dark hair until it was shorter than my fiancé's (he's still mour...

Like any kid, my teenage years were a harsh period. I was not at a happy place at the time; I was miserable, actually. Things weren't going too well at home and my best friend, Julie, became the center of my universe. Her and my golden retriever, that is. But the need for Julie was pretty mutual. Things were rather rough at her own home and she needed attention, desperately. We each became the other's life saver.

Gradually, and rather painfully, we grew up. I was forced to move but she ...

I am a writer!

Posted on February 28, 2011 at 11:55 AM Comments comments (0)

I work nightshift. When I am done at work, I take out my pc chair and my little IKEA table and I open my laptop. I heat my supper and I write and eat. Then write, serve customers and write some more.

One of my regulars came in the other day and he's like, 'You watching movies?'

"Nope, writing.'


"Nope, my book.' Proud I was of saying it.

"You write?" Scorn.


"Oh yeah? What do you have published?" Sneer.

Basically, he belittled ...

Rejection can be harsh

This was also written a few years ago but it still expresses my thoughts.

I'm working on a three book fantasy series. My sister actually came up with the idea a year ago. She sent me an email with the first sentence starting with 'Your mission, should you choose to accept it . . .'

She outlined -briefly- her ideas to me. I printed the letter and studied it for a few days. I realised that there was a lot I could work with it but a lot of it I ...

Liar Liar

Posted on February 28, 2011 at 11:53 AM Comments comments (0)

When I was younger, I used to . . . embellish events. Let's not call it lying. Lying seems wrong, hurtful, deceiftul, yes? But being hurtful was the last thing I wanted. I only wanted to be different, interesting. I'd make a simple bike fall seem like an adventure worthy of Indiana Jones. I added enough detail for it to be juicy, but no more than that; I did not want my stories to be tacky or obviously false. With time, my imagination developped. I read a lot. But I made up my own stories, I ...

Niagara Falls

This summer, we went to Niagara Falls. Although I had lived in Ontario for six years, I had never visited the beautiful sight. I was inspired to write about my experience of our vacation. Basically, it's random thoughts, but feel free to read them. (After all, that's why I'm posting them! :D)



We left home at 9h20 on Wednesday morning, on June 24th. After a few pee/coffee stops -including a stop at an Esso in beautiful Burlington- we around in Oshawa around 3h30...

I met up with a psychic a few yearsago? Whoa. Well that was definitely a new experience. Have any of you ever tried ? It's cool, it's weird, it's enlightening.


She started out by telling me what my physical weaknesses are. My lower back between my kidneys, my neck and right shoulder area, my knees and finally my hips. She talked to me about my family, about how close my younger sibling and I are. She told me that my boyfriend is a keeper and that we will live the rest of o...

I was a blog virgin . . . Until this

Posted on May 5, 2009 at 10:28 AM Comments comments (0)

This was written a couple years ago and I'm keeping it on because it amuses me. ;)

This was my first blog ever and I'm pretty proud of it. It talks about two of my favorite males in the whole world : my cats.


Ladies and gentlemen I have an announcement to make, I am a blog virgin. Pretty amazing in this day and age, you say? Well I agree and that is why I’m taking up this new challenge. Let’s see how I do!

Since I’m the one typ...
