Give Me Your Honest Praise!

I have a few minutes to spare and so I thought I would post a quick round-up of recent goings on here in Chez Gibson.
I’m still experimenting and tweaking my diet (and by diet I mean eating habits) in order to gain the approval of my colon. There have been good days and bad days, but for the most part, I am only going once or twice a day, which is a huge improvement. I’ve eliminated all refined grains, and cut out as many processed foods as possible. I’m not experience gut aches any more, which is really nice. Hopefully things continue to improve as I figure out what my triggers are. I am still planning on getting things looked at by my doctor once we get our insurance straightened out.
This Friday Jack and I will be celebrating the anniversary of our engagement. We’ve been together for almost 9 years now, and while we don’t usually have a big to-do over this anniversary, we are going to have a nice dinner out together to observe the occasion. I will never forget the moment when he knelt in the snow, and asked me to be his wife. It was dark, and the city lights twinkled behind us from the special spot he took me to. It was a really wonderful proposal, and I’m so happy that he asked me to marry him all those years ago.
On Saturday night, after my pole dancing class (which I am LOVING, by the way) Aiden and I are attending our first play party here in Calgary. We went to our first munch on Monday evening, and met some really friendly people. I, for one, have felt welcomed by the community here, something I didn’t expect. It’s been a very pleasant surprise. Some of the community members whom we didn’t get a chance to talk to on Monday night stopped by where we were sitting to say goodbye and said that they hoped to get a chance to visit with us next time. That was really nice. I’m really looking forward to the party, as it’s been a long time. The hosts are just about the most outgoing and good natured people you could meet. I have a feeling it’s going to be a fantastic time. I hope we can play a little
Aiden’s mum is coming to visit us next weekend. I am a little nervous about that as she doesn’t know the truth about the situation. Jack has generously agreed to make himself scarce for the two days that she is here, and Aiden and I have decided to go with the story that we are storing some of his things, if she asks. I don’t know how I feel about it all, but I’ve missed her so much, and I can’t wait to see her.
It’s difficult to believe that Christmas is right around the corner. I am hoping to get a lot of shopping done this weekend. We haven’t bothered decorating yet. Honestly, I think it’s very strange to decorate a house before the beginning of December, but perhaps that is because we always had real trees, and if you wanted them to last until New Year, you couldn’t set them up until the middle of the month. I’m in no hurry to get anything put up, it will get done after we get through the impending mother visit. We also keep our decorations up until Ukrainian Christmas, which is in January, so having the house decorated for over a month seems excessive.
We are very busy, but life is good.
