Behind Every Beautiful Thing, There Is Some Kind Of Pain

Posted on March 21st, 2011 in Emotional Angst, Featured, Starting Over

Yesterday was a rough day. In fact it was so bad, and I felt so hopeless and desperate, that I seriously considered checking myself into a hospital.  I looked up suicide crisis centers in my city, just in case, and wrote down the numbers for several help lines. Sometimes life and the nastiness of this [...]

The Dreams In Which I’m Dying Are The Best I Ever Had

Posted on March 10th, 2011 in Emotional Angst, Featured, Mating And Relating, Three's Company

There is plenty to report, but not much that I am willing to say.  Unfortunately, it may remain so for quite some time. Aiden has moved out, and now I divide my time between his place and what now feels like Jack’s house.  My schedule generally involves work, picking up the kids from school, doing [...]

What Shall We Do With A Drunken Sailor?

Posted on February 26th, 2011 in Emotional Angst, Featured, Mating And Relating, Polyamory, Three's Company

I’ve been mulling over what to do with this blog, and with my now inactive Twitter account.  I’ve debated deleting them both, after offering alternative contact information to anyone that would like it. I don’t think that I have it in me to continue tweeting, and now that I’ve been away from it for over [...]

These Walls Surround Me With The Story Of Our Life

Posted on February 11th, 2011 in Emotional Angst, Featured, Mating And Relating

Earlier this week I wrote a sizable post, speaking about our current state of affairs, but after allowing it to sit for a few days, and consulting other involved parties, I’ve decided against publishing it. The fact of the matter is that Jack and I are separating. Despite outward appearances and the timing of everything, this actually has [...]

There’s A Sorrow Hanging In The Air Between Us

Posted on January 31st, 2011 in Emotional Angst, Featured, Mating And Relating, Polyamory, Three's Company

On Saturday night the three adults that live in this house sat down together to have a family meeting.  This is not unusual for us, however, the outcome of this particular meeting happened to be that Aiden is going to be moving out of our home. It saddens me just to type it, and I [...]

I’m Not Even On Drugs, I’m Just Weird

Posted on January 29th, 2011 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Featured, Life List, Made In Alberta, Photos

Jack and I recently celebrated our 9th wedding anniversary (10th anniversary as a couple) and he surprised me with a limosine ride to the Calgary Tower, where we had dinner at the revolving restauraunt.  It was such a surprise, totally amazing, and not to mention, crossed TWO things off of my Life List: 85. Ride in a [...]

You Taste Like Grandma

Posted on January 15th, 2011 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Featured, Life List, Photos

We are only two weeks into 2011, and I’ve already managed to cross something off of my Life List, and I am half-way though a second item!  It’s shaping up to be a productive year. Jack got me a wonderful dehydrator for Christmas, which made it easy to make our own beef jerky! 325. Make [...]

In For A Penny, In For A Pound

Posted on January 6th, 2011 in Budge That Pudge, Life List, Made In Alberta, Mating And Relating

2011 got off to kind of a rough start.  The day after our fantastic NYE Luau party (which was a grand success) I started my period AND came down with a really bad case of the flu, all while Jack and I were in Edmonton spending a few days with his family.  I was very [...]

The Least Of My Worries

Posted on December 27th, 2010 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Budge That Pudge, Does All Her Own Stunts, Made In Alberta

I’m writing this during our drive home from dropping the kids off with their grandparents (man I love being able to blog from my android phone).  We made it through the holidays unscathed and for the most part, had a wonderful time. I was totally spoiled this year by both of my loves, and by [...]

Tigers Love Pepper (They Hate Cinnamon)

Posted on December 24th, 2010 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Made In Alberta, Three's Company

It’s Christmas Eve, and despite the fact that I still have quite a number of tasks to complete, I felt like writing (and I may not get a chance to update until sometime after Boxing Day). This is the first Christmas we’ve had in Alberta where we were not traveling on Christmas Day.  You have [...]

I Dare You To Have A Different Opinion Than Me

Posted on December 13th, 2010 in Are You Gonna Eat That?, Made In Alberta, Three's Company

I’ve finally decided to acknowledge that it’s almost Christmas. My denial of the season comes not from my usual distaste for the entire over-commercialized mess that is December, but from the fact that I have been utterly and completely distracted by matters completely unrelated to the holidays. Fortunately, even though I didn’t feel the least [...]

You Guys Are So Fucked Now!

Posted on November 29th, 2010 in Collar And Cuff, Does All Her Own Stunts, Made In Alberta, Photos, Polyamory, Tie Me Up

How was your weekend? Mine was productive, and yet relaxing.  Here, let me tell you about it. Thursday night (yes, I am starting on Thursday) was the evening Jack and I set aside to celebrate the anniversary of our engagement (which was technically on Friday, see below for why we had it on Thursday instead). [...]

Give Me Your Honest Praise!

Posted on November 24th, 2010 in Made In Ontario, Mating And Relating, Polyamory, Tie Me Up

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 [...]

I Am Ashamed Of What I Did For A Klondike Bar

Posted on October 27th, 2010 in Advice, Emotional Angst, Mating And Relating, Polyamory

I think that there comes a point when a person just becomes very tired of catering to what other people think and ceases caring about the opinions of anyone else.  Well, almost anyone else.  Lets say they become more selective about it. When Jack and I decided to become poly, I don’t think either of [...]

I Beat The Internet. The End Guy Is Hard

Posted on October 24th, 2010 in Migration Paths, Three's Company

Has it really been 20 days since the last time I posted?  Time certainly does fly when one is busy. We recently celebrated Thanksgiving here in Canada, and I had the great pleasure of hosting dinner for a number of friends, including LD, V, P, Aiden’s brother and sister-in-law, and M.  Much food was eaten, [...]

I’m Too Drunk To Taste This Chicken

Posted on October 4th, 2010 in Emotional Angst

There is something of a back-burner guilt that goes along with neglecting ones blog.  Often it will occur to me to write something here, and lately I’ve been pushing it off in favor of vanilla projects, such as other blogs I write, or amassing backpacking gear and Warhammer miniatures.  Truth be told, I haven’t had [...]

I’d Like To Double YOUR Entendre

Posted on September 20th, 2010 in Brazilian Waxing, Budge That Pudge, Made In Alberta

The worst part of major life upheavals, in my opinion, is how long it takes to find a regular schedule again.  With the kids back in school, things are beginning to fall into a rhythm. Jack works shorter hours now, and seems very happy in his position here.  Even though it was a bit of a [...]

Carry Only What You Need – Day Three

Posted on September 17th, 2010 in Budge That Pudge, Does All Her Own Stunts, Made In Alberta, Photos

We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home, in towns and cities. –NESSMUK (G.W. Sears) Sunday morning was blessedly warmer than Saturday morning had been, and when we hauled ourselves out of our sleeping bags at 7:30 [...]

Roses Are Red…Or Are They?

Posted on September 8th, 2010 in Photos

Yesterday, on something of a whim, I made Jack breakfast in bed.  No real reason, I just wanted to do something spontaneous and unexpected.  He was understandably thrilled, and when he got home from work, he presented me with these: I’m one lucky girl

Always Bring A Compass, It’s Awkward When You Have To Eat Your Friends

Posted on August 24th, 2010 in Does All Her Own Stunts, Made In Alberta

For months I’ve been pondering and planning a multi-day hiking trip in the backcountry of Banff.  Aiden and I picked up a copy of Backcountry Banff by Mike Potter, and spent more than a few hours pouring over the pages, discussing the pros and cons of various trails.  Jack eagerly agreed that a hiking trip [...]
