First and foremost… I’m so sorry for the wait! But I have good news: I have a new computer! My sister, in the goodness of her heart (which to be honest doesn’t happen a lot – no kidding the little sis suffer from a very bad case of the middle child syndrom and thinks she is perpetually persecuted by both me and our younger brother), gave me her old eMachines mini-laptop! It sure didn’t bother her since her boyfriend got her a brand new laptop for Valentine’s Day. So I said goodbye to pen and paper and typed all I had written.
This chapter would have come sooner if I hadn’t taken a well deserved mini vacation around Saint Patrick’s day. See at my work Christmas party I won a one night stay at a nice little boutique hotel in Old Montreal by hitting my head with a pool noddle and answering pop culture questions. So anyway, I was able to get two days off from work and took my brother with me. It was… illuminating! I got wasted at a nice pub/brewery and let’s say that when she’s tipsy – cause of course I wasn’t drunk! – LaraK tends to giggle a lot and talk a lot. And guess what? Little brother is the same! Even though we have a 12 years gap between us, I feel so close to him. I told him stuff I never told anybody and he did the same.
Another reason to the lack of earlier update is a medical one. I’ve been seing my doctor a lot recently. But don’t worry, it’s nothing critical! No… In fact it’s more life changing than anything else. I’ve been thinking about it for a long while now, probably the last 5 years, and, with my 30th birthday being next May, I finally decided to do it. Jeez, I can’t believe I’m writing this when I have so much trouble discussing it with some of my close friends! Well, I decided to have a baby. Here, it’s writen for the whole Internet to read! Yep, I decided to have a baby, by myself. I always knew I wanted to be a mom, ever since my own mother brought back my brother from the hospital when I was 12. This desire to have a child has been even more present since most of my friends and cousins started to have their own kids. I always thought I would meet prince charming, fall in love, get married and have a bunch of babies and live happily ever after. But you know what they say? Lucky in work, unlucky in love. That’s me! So I’m gonna do it. I’m waiting to get an appointment at a fertility clinic and start the process for an artificial insemination. If I’m lucky I’ll have either a little Erin or a little Alexander on the way by the end of the year.
So… You didn’t come here to read about my personal life (but thanks for reading anyway!) so I guess I better give you what you came for, right? So, chapter 22 of Dead Briefs Tome 2 is ready!!!!!!! Enjoy and don’t forget to leave a comment!
