Ok, the truth is, I couldn't figure out how to log in to my blogger account anymore...

At which point do you stop apologizing for the lack of blogging (cause you know you don't have any readers left anyway, yo)...

Anyway, life moves on!

I'm heading into my 5th year of being with this lovely man and we are expecting child #2 in July!!

How's that for an update?? :) :) :) :)

Perhaps more posts to come... if I ever figure out how to log back in that is.


Sass the Frass

id wheee

So I'm slowly (like backward molasses in January slowly) going through my jungle 'o stuff in my 'meditation' room and I come across these old passports.

There are two from Germany and two from Canada and there is one each of my maiden name and my married name for both countries. I kinda felt a little like a spy there for a minute!


(thank God, the neck pain finally took a hike. It took a whole lotta love, soul searching and acupuncture).

pains in the neck

... is what I have been experiencing, non-stop, for the past twelve days. Twelve very long days and nights, spent trying to find some kind of solution to just make it go away!!

Since I work in a Wholistic clinic, it is my extremely good fortune to work alongside very many talented practitioners... whom we are encouraged to trade services with so as to ourselves fully understand what it is we have on offer and be able to recommend our colleagues to our clients. And so on.

So far, my attempts to dislodge the icepick to my right posterior side of my head have included everything from hot/cold hydrotherapy (screaming hot to freezing and back again in the shower, loads of fun), self lymph drainage, multiple massage & chiropractic visits, homeopathic and regular pain relievers, you name it, I've given it a whirl.

Tomorrow marks the fourth visit to the Chiro and first one to the Physio, who so kindly helped out with my sciatic nerve during pregnancy and plantar fasciitis afterward. I have high high hopes, as I don't know how much longer I can deal here and I've already decided that the CT scan that my Doctor ordered for Monday won't show a thing.

It may just be all in my head... in which case the two Cranal Sacral sessions I have booked will come in very handy indeed.

Gotta have all my bases covered here.

Cali here we come

I'm getting a little giddy with the prospect of leaving this frozen-for-months-at-a-time country for warmer parts in just 5 sleeps!!

Yup, me & the babe are headed to Palm Springs and then I'm taking a little solo side trip to San Diego from the 5th to the 8th.

I am going to get to meet a couple of Goddesses who have up until now only really been known to me in this strange virtual world we call the web.

It's kind of hard to contain, this level of excitedness I'm experiencing...

Things are looking up

Someone asked me to teach a pole dancing class to a bunch of bachlorettes today on Facebook.
Odd, since I don't teach pole dancing.

I have, however, taken a class in pole dancing, put on by The Goddesses of Calgary, about 2 1/2 years ago. It was SO much fun... after the pole wouldn't fit in the party room, the instructor had no choice but to set up inside dear Goddess (and Hostess that evening) Firecracker's apartment. Thank goodness the cage with the reptile was gone by that point! ~long story~

It was a big turnout, as I remember, and almost twenty or so Goddesses old and new all joined in in the fun. Awkward and shy at the beginning, we each let go and trusted each other a little more after practicing the moves in turn. By the end I would say all inhibitions were gonzo and we were laughing our asses off.

... So that's what has been missing, I finally surmised. Time with my lady friends.
Or Goddesses, as we like to call one another.

So I'm happily looking forward to the next two gatherings in the next few weeks... a clothing exchange and a make-over night. Whoppeee!

where oh where has my sassy gone?

"Sassness" ... I seem to have lost you, temporarily.

I think it was somewhere between the piles of unfiled paperwork in my (hah) meditation room... or did it fly out the window one night that I was up for a 3 O'clock feeding?

I do know that when I don't take the time to care for the Sass Monster with the proper love, attention and watering that it does tend to wilt a little.

Poor, neglected, Sassiness. How can I rectify this and bring you back into my life, where you belong?

Let's take a few deep breaths. Step back and have a birds-eye view of the situation.

It's not gone for good, the Sassafrass. It is a more delicate creature than you'd think, taking a quick look. Under the strong, solid surface are quivering butterflies awaiting their release.

Shhh shhh now, reach out your hand oh so delicately. Here she is, coming in for a landing.

Coming home.
