Reality Check

Did you ever have one of those days that was exhausting, yet so satisfying that you couldnt wipe the grin off your face? Today was one for me, even with pyscho CL guy / my cute, little sick and snotty, homegrown terrorist hitting delete everytime I turn around/ east coast-west coast time difference/Stupidstore grocery shopping….lol….. you get the picture. And now, when I have my glass of wine, and I think I’m about to write in peace while listening to the hockey game, my two year old  starts hollering that he’s “pood’ed” in his pull-ups………Reality check.

Here ye, here ye…..

Ok, so I created this blog recently  in response to my friends, families and colleagues requests that  they wanted an easier way to get updates, etc, on what I’m up to.  Made sense to me, and although I was hesitant  putting personal stuff  on the internet, it was easier  writing things once, rather than 100 times. I’m from up north , so a lot of my contacts aren’t local.

Yesterday,  I received an email  from a  colleague who told me someone posted a link to my site on the crazy secton of craigslist. I flagged it and had it removed, this is not a commercial site. Today,  she emails me again, and sure enough ,some idiot guy has my blog address posted on CL , in the Rants/Raves section , urging other guys to ” check me out”.  I  flagged it and had it removed asap.  SO, creepy guy, I know you will probably be reading this, dont post my blog address anywhere,again.I know this is the internet, and really, nothings private, but- I’ll find yours, and post it all over CL, and see how much you like it…….

Cknw Talk Show Idol- vote for Laila Yuile

Photoshoot- Jade Photography, Jadeler Akim, photographerThings I know to be true – live every day like it may be your last. Gurjeet Ghuman’s first radio appearance ever, took place on The Laila Yuile Show today, and  her story was completely riveting. How she has found the strength to pick up the pieces of her life and move on to save others is profoundly inspiring. The show was  emotionally overwhelming, and several times during the interview we held hands for support. She is beautiful, full of grace and eloquence, and her words resonated with the firmness of her conviction to save others.

The judges were quite vocal today…

This is just the beginning  of a journey between Gurjeet and I, as we  discussed ways we can keep the issue of spousal assualt front and center. Thanks for listening and sharing,and please vote for me!
