The last time I went shopping for “new essentials” meaning things that I must absolutely get less I die or suffer immediate status loss or social suicide based on the reputation built in my head outside of any proof in my real life kind of thing…I bought let’s just say an impressive amount of stuff at Target. These were so essential that at this point it wasn’t even considered a “shopping spree”. For about two months before the whole episode, my poor husband has heard me complain endlessly about “what am I going to wear to work now” and statements like “I have nothing to wear”.

Naturally with that in mind, as soon as we got home (it was a Sunday) husband proposed to sort them out and do laundry so I can wear them on Monday.

Me: (A bit annoyed) “Don’t worry about it honey”, I’ll do it (meaning: stay out of this). Unable to realize that he was in dangerous territory, he insisted. After some back and forth I finally gave up and let him do it. Well, I thought to myself at least they’ll be ready when I am ready to wear them. Then the next morning I am getting ready to go to work:

Hubby: “Cool so which one of your newly-bought stuff you’re goanna wear?”

Me: “None of them, I said while grabbing something I said that I was tired of wearing, which is the reason I went shopping in the first place…

Hubby: “I thought you said you were tired of wearing these?” The look on his face will forever be inked in my memory and haunt me to this day.

Me: “Well, I don’t know It just makes sense for me to wear them today”, I replied carefully choosing my words.

Hubby: ????!!!!…… !!…. ????….I think if he was a computer, his whole system would have crashed right about this point…(crash and burn sound)

Me: ???!!! feeling misunderstood and under scrutiny

Hubby: “But why not wear the new ones?”

Me: “It would not feel right to wear them now…my gut tells me otherwise…”

Hubby: “But you bought them because you said you had nothing to wear to go to work”?

Me (Feeling cornered and misunderstood): “The moment has to be right okay? And this moment does not feel right…I have to be in the corresponding mood….never mind you can’t understand.”

You see the problem with husbands is that there are certain stuff that they will never understand. Now this stuff may be different from one couple to another but this truth remains. What he doesn’t understand is that it is just like having sex really… in the process of having sex there naturally comes a moment when you feel close to the end and you pace yourself because well, you don’t want it to end…you want to prolongs the pleasure although for early morning sex I tend to take an entirely different approach(well, I need some time left for makeup:). If I buy them and wear them right after, the whole experience is lost….it is over with quickly…buying them and setting them aside for a few days or months (sometimes I forget about them depending on the amount) just prolongs the whole shopping experience.

At this point, my poor husband just left the room after that explanation and also I am afraid to think that he might have finally realized that something was wrong. One of the things that get to me when I go shopping with my husband is the whole researching, price comparing, and countless questionings of friends and sales clerk. He simply turns the whole thing into a math homework. But I guess this is also something I will never understand…but then again he buys electronics and I buy clothes although recently my habits have changed and in my next post I’ll talk about a book that changed my life forever.

What about you guys what are the funny things that you and your husbands can’t seem to agree upon? I’d love to hear them! Talk to you next week…hopefully:)



I know a lot of people are practically limping into 2017 due to rocky 2016 but I am one of those people who believes that any day above ground is a good day (at least that is what I believe when I am fed and changed lol). Mind you if you had come to visit and ask me that three days ago I would have probably asked you for a hug and some warm milk. After spending 3 weeks with a certain family member I can assure you that I may need a cane to walk into 2017 properly, at least for the first few weeks and I am not even counting recovery time here. And since I am not here to bash myself I am going to pretend that the 5 pounds I must have gained over the holidays downing croissants, raclette, saucisson and roblochon have absolutely nothing to do with my limping into 2017 either. Yes I know I pig out in style lol. I sincerely think that when you eat cheese it goes directly to your thighs. Dont ask me how I know, I just know lol.  No, I will not post picture of my thighs either:)

BUT in retrospect, 2016 was good to me. We got married and bought our dream home. As for the dream part, I am not so sure considering the insane amount of work involved in being a home owner… like shoveling snow out of your driveway or at least freeing enough of a walking space so you don’t break a leg getting inside your home!!??? Well, I can’t logically complain about the snow shoveling since my poor husband is doing most of it 🙂 But you know how it is, you feel it the most when you’re not doing it:) call it guilt lol (I did warn him that I was a princess lol). But I do a lot of other things around the house so he is not being abused although I am sure he would say the contrary.

I have a lot of resolutions for 2017. In my next post I’ll share more of them with you guys if I am feeling courageous enough, but the main one is to STOP AND ENJOY LIFE. I recently hired a writing coach to help me stay focus on my writing and one the words that stuck with me after our first session is ENJOY. I was trying to figure out which project to give my attention to in 2017 and she told me : “Well, why don’t you just pick the one you feel you’d enjoy the most right now? I was a little bit stunned considering I tend to turn my writing time into heavy session of self-flagellation where I essentially stare at the window and ask myself why I dont’t write. So as for my writing, I plan on writing a second book of which I already have 3 pages and some awesome characters jumping around. I equally plan on working on the first draft of my first book and put it into top shape and start shopping for agents in the last quarter of 2017.

My mother in law offered me a photography class last year and I really liked it. I would like to reserve an hour at lunch time each week to practice. For this year, I asked my mother in law for a subscription to the Laval association of photographers so I can be among other people with interest in photography as well and have a better chance to stay in the know. I feel like I am more attuned to the beauty around me during my walks because of it. What’s life without beauty?

As for fitness I would like to hire a personal trainer but I would need to allocate most of my shopping money to it which would mean no more shopping for me. But then again If I am fat there won’t be any shopping either lol

My plan for 2017 is to practice being selfish. I have been practicing it for the last few weeks and already, my hair have grown lol I think selfishness suits me. If the glow continues I may even be able to skip moisturizer altogether..we’ll see lol

So my dear readers thank you for your likes, comments and subscriptions. I really appreciate them!
