Losing a List Item

Happy
So far, 2016 has been pretty good. Decent. Alright. There have been quite a few positives, and I'm cautiously optimistic about most thing. I'm doing okay. I repeat: I am doing okay. I've had several people ask me if I'm happy. The more its asked, the harder...

Calgary

From Jennifer to Lauren
Around this time, 40 some odd years ago, a series of events occurred that chose the path my life would take. My mom was out of town helping my dad's sister, who had just had baby #3. My parents had been married a little over five years and were seriously ch...

Progress Report: The List
The big 4-0 is a mere 21 days away. I thought it would be a good time to update "the list" and see where I am at (although I do have another year to complete these things). It's funny how life gets in the way of somethings and not others. A lot has changed ...
