Yep - I don't EVEN want to look at the date of my last post.

But the important thing is I'm here now merrily typing away.

Wow - where to start?

This will be a pic-free post - just sayin'.

I get so caught up in the slow reno progress of my house that I get embarrassed to update the blog.  Then I remind myself that this isn't a home reno blog - it's just an update of my life. :-)

So, in no particular order:

The kitchen ceiling - tongue and groove pine is going in slowllllllyyyyy but surely.  It looks kick-ass.
Not sure if I mentioned before that my work buddy Franco came and did his drywall compound magic on my walls - not once but 3 times folks and well, it's a thing of beauty.  A light sanding and priming and BOOM!  We're ready for paint.
I started the closet at the top of the stairs that will be mine - it's stalled at the moment. The nice weather came and honestly, I lost interest in renovating cause I wanted to enjoy the weather.
Girlfriend did a Roller Derby Crash Course - pretty sure I was in the upper age limits of all of us there and PASSED AND was invited to proceed to level 2 as well as join the league.  All very cool and flattering until I found out the huge time and money commitment - neither of which I have. Boo.
Passed my M2 test and am ready to go.

Aislinn, my beautiful girl, turned 8 at the beginning of the month and I just don't know where the f!@# time went.  She is smart, funny, sassy and makes me laugh.  Lots of attitude in that little body... She's growing up so fast that I'm so proud of her and yet, it's so damn poignant.

The love life or more aptly, lack-of-love life is a joke.  It can only improve right? Right?

I gotta confess - I've been in a shittay place for the last few months.  It's not every day - more during the times when Aislinn isn't with me but holy shit when the day is dark - it's dark.  Too many times lately the only thing that keeps me on this earthly plane is my little boo.  Hard typing this cause that's not how I roll.  I'm using to being strong and now that I'm feeling kinda vulnerable and fragile - dealing with the dark ain't easy.  This isn't a 'poor me, feel sorry for me' rant - just stating where I've been.

I've also kinda hermitted myself away and not seeing a lot of my friends in the city - that's going to change cause I miss my peeps.

Anyhoo, no need to worry as I will bounce back - always do.  Just being honest and typing about how things are.

I hope you're all enjoying this summer - I'm enjoying the hot weather cause gawd knows, we don't get much of it for long.

Until next time, keep calm and sangria on.
