Time warp meme

I am pretending I was tagged for a meme (though technically I think I qualify being from the Great White North) because I read over the memory I was going to post this morning & it needs some revision which I have no time for. Plus who am I kidding? I never get these things out in the morning unless I wrote them the night before & come evening lately I've been too exhausted to even think. Anyway, I thought this was kind of neat & I liked reading everyone else's time lines so here you go.... (I suck at games so if you want to do this then Tag you're it!)

20 years ago I was...
  • Trying to climb out of the hole I put myself in by skipping too many classes in Grade 11, being an angsty, depressed & surly teenager. I had been in a full International Baccalaureate program but had had a bit of trouble with the advanced math, primarily because I hated it & there were a couple of math genius boys in my class who would snicker & make fun of anyone who had trouble. Hence, withdrawal & daydreaming in class which led to not learning much which led to failing tests & eventually the class. In the end I only graduated with partial I.B. certificates. Oh well.
  • Dancing my heart out every day I could at RWB, trying my damndest to strengthen my weak ankles for pointe class. Eating only a couple of bran muffins during the day & maybe some taters from Taco Time in Eaton Place before ballet class with my friends. OK I was a bit of a mall rat, but it was the downtown mall with all the alternative weirdos so it was cool all right?
  • Involved with my first serious boyfriend. He was a mod. He had a couple of scooters that I never got to ride because they were always being repaired. He tried to get everyone to adopt a new nickname for him. Ace. It didn’t work. He tossed me in the snow once when I was at home sick in my pajamas. Turns out he was an ass.

10 Years ago...

  • Calvin & I were living in the Glebe, hanging out a lot at Irene’s & the Arrow & the Loon. Seeing a few bands, having fun.
  • I was working at a boutique-y women & children’s clothing / linens store called La Cache for this totally evil manager. Seriously, this woman a few screws loose. She thought everyone (especially me) was out to take her job away from her, she was a bitch to customers, treated the staff like idiots & was supposedly having an affair with some rich married gentleman who lived in Europe. She’d have strange conversations (with him?) on the phone & ignore people who came to the cash. This was the only job I ever quit. The owners were coming in so the night before I did I really good job tidying up. The next day she accused me of stabbing her in the back, etc., etc. I went to the stock room, changed my clothes & walked out the door. I never went back despite her calling me 20 million times after bedtime.

5 Years ago

  • I was graduating from Interior Design & stressing about my portfolio, organizing a grad show & worrying about getting a “real” job (still not done) after my work placement was done

3 Years ago...

  • I was about to celebrate our 1st anniversary of trying to call my boyfriend of 11 years my husband.
  • I was in London getting irritated & bored with our self-guided tour of Jack the Ripper hot spots. Getting excited about flying to Iceland in a few hours.


1 year ago...
  • I was feeling the bun move around in my belly
  • I was having the worst heartburn of my life that would not ever stop until a week after I pushed her out of my hoo-ha
  • I looked like this & obviously liked my dog a whole lot better


So far this year…

~ I’ve found immense pleasure in a tiny little thing that

  • lights up my day with a no longer totally gummy smile
  • sucks on her first two fingers of her left hand only
  • squeals with delight when I read her a book

~ I learned it was a lot harder to

  • breastfeed than I ever thought possible
  • leave my dear sweet baby alone with anyone not myself
  • let Daddy do it his way

Yesterday…

  • we gave a newborn child a Moses action figure for her Christening
  • we took the long way home just to keep Doodles asleep
  • I wouldn’t let my hubby have a nap because I wanted to go for a walk

Today …

  • we went to the library & Starbucks (how cool am I?)
  • I read Mr. Brown Can Moo for the zillionth time & realized that neither of are sick of it yet
  • we came home to slimy dog shit in the baby’s room. I almost puked three times cleaning that stuff up.
  • I wrote this thing in chopped up bits of time that I snatched when Freyja finally napped


Tomorrow…

  • I will probably not do half the stuff I should
  • I will read Mr. Brown… & Owl Babies over & over again & like it
  • I will give my child a bath, promise
  • I will remind myself to do some crunches but then will promptly forget about doing them until the next day

This year…

  • We will eventually get the Doodles to eat some solid food so I can fill her up enough to sleep longer through the night & can therefore get her to sleep in her crib a bit longer
  • I will feel guilty for making my baby sleep in the room down the hall & will miss her little body snuggling in the crook of my arm
  • We will travel East & West to show off my chipmunk cheeked baby
  • We will hopefully be going on a big adventure that will bring on happiness & terror all at the same time.

That was fun to read, minus the dog poop, bless your heart!
I love your blog, by the way. Great writing and pictures!

I think my husband is now your biggest fan. As I was reading your posts he variously commented "Her daughter's name is Freya? That's cool." "Mr Brown Can Moo! Can YOU?" (and some other lines from the book) and said some nice things about the photos.

Me? I want to fall into your daughter's cheeks. But I am very pro-cheek.
