Raising Ephia to become my friend

Day 210 – After weekend thoughts

D

This has been such an amazing weekend. I love it when I can combine work with fun and at the end of that day I can just sight and smile in the same time. Saturday started a little slow, teaching and trying to stay awake in between classes. It’s a good thing my main teaching method includes lots of fun and games, otherwise the classical way would make me yawn and fall asleep faster then the...

Day 209 – Introducing the photographer of the house

D

I have waited for two hundred and nine days to introduce you to the most important person in my life and what better day to do it, if not on his birthday which also marks our anniversary. I’ve met D sixteen years ago (I know, right?) in high school and faith made it so that we end up in the same class together, but don’t be deceived, we hated each other back then. He was this short...

Day 198 – Beyond racism or discrimination

D

I was supposed to write something fun today, but what happened to me was too much to just let it be and not share. These last couple of weeks we have been looking for a babysitter to spend a few hours a week with our daughter. I gathered some contacts, made some phone calls and set some meetings. Yesterday my phone rang and at the end of the line this person was asking me for some further...

Day 196 – Sunday and some technical difficulties

D

As you can see my blog’s theme sucks right now and we are working really hard to fix it (better said D is working really hard, I am just panicking around him and approving new themes ). I stopped believing that this year sucks, even if it was probably the most horrible year up until now and even if I am changing my mind a lot regarding my perspective about it. I have all these maybes that I...

Day 193 – Children – friendship versus care

D

In my book there is a huge difference between raising a child and just taking care of one. I have always been judged for my methods and behavior around children and it all started fourteen years ago when my nephew was born and I became his full time babysitter for the first three years of his life. It’s gotten even worse when I had my daughter. People get scared when I use the word...

Day 192 – Opportunities and damaging thoughts

D

I have always been a lucky person, or at least that’s how I like to see things, although if someone would look into my past or present they would say I am very unfortunate, but have always managed somehow to struggle and get myself out of trouble. This also goes for the opportunities that have reached my hand over the years and I have either managed to choose the wrong one, or most of the...

Day 180 – Sleep, long bus ride and Ephia’s cure for me

D

Ephia is not taking very well the fact that I need to stay in bed a lot. All morning she kept pulling my finger and asked me to get out of bed and come with her and all morning I had to refuse and tell her I can’t. That hurt almost as bad as the physical pain and there were a couple of moments when I just couldn’t see the disappointment in her eyes anymore and I just wanted to stand...

Day 175 – An unusual Sunday

D

Unlike any other Sunday, today we didn’t have our usual cake and cappuccino in the morning, instead we paid a visit to Ephia’s good friend Lee and also returned the beloved White Temp.  That kind of makes me realize that summer is indeed over and the bike rides in the middle of the night will remain only as a sweet memory from now on. We had some Chinese take out for lunch and a nice...

Day 174 – Whenever I need to be rescued…

D

Another depressing post about my day. This year is definitely not my year and I am not so sure how I should feel about that. Sometimes I am optimistic, other days I just feel like sleeping and forgetting about it all and some days I pretend I don’t care. Today I am just confused. My body seems to punish me for my misbehavior, for all the sleepless nights and all the stress I am submitting...

Day 166 – A morning with Ephia

D

Today, us girls were left by ourselves and enjoyed the morning and afternoon together. I decided that what better way to have some fun together than take a stroll downtown of Florence. Although it was suppose to be a bus strike today, everything worked out in our favor and we didn’t even have to wait for any buses, because they all seemed to come precisely in the moment we arrived at the...
