At 6am this morning a co-worker and I had to shovel for 45 minutes through shoulder high snow drifts to get to the front door of our office. I guess I must like my job.

My boyfriend has never once told me he loves me, and then tonight he tells me he wants to marry me...

My soon to be ex-husband and I had a great time in Pasadena, but now I'm on my way to leaving the desert forever... he filed for divorce in November. I just want to eat as much breakfast as possible and then fly through security and get on the plane... or do I? I am so disturbed.

I suddenly feel this sharp yearning for Rick Krispies cereal. Why? I don't even like Rice Krispies.

Today my son was arrested by the SWAT team, and had three rifles with scopes pointed at his head. I had played that terror in my head a million times, and it's only by the grace of God I wasn't there to scream a mothers worst gut-wrenching scream of fear and nothing-but-survival panic. This is the end of all my hopes and dreams for him... the end of the denial that everything will turn around. He will face the consequences now, and I only hope that he will find the divine self within him to survive it. Mercy for all of us, no exceptions; we need it so.

Today I went back to school eighteen years after graduating from high school. I was so scared, however with encouragment from my ten year old daughter, I made it through the day. I can tell that she will be my biggest cheerleader. She has already told me how proud she is of me. I hope that once I have earned my R.N. Degree, my daughter will see that you can acomplish anything you put your mind to.

My husband is going back to Iraq. Hopefully he'll give me the divorce papers before he leaves. His girlfriend can worry about him this time around. i'm done with him.

I had my work leaving party today. My best friend bought me lunch and then came out for drinks later. It occurred to me that perhaps if things were different he'd be more than my best friend. We have a connection and I love him to pieces. He wrote the nicest thing in my goodbye card. I think he could well be my soul mate...

I finally realised that 41 years of having a stepfather is better than having no father at all, so I'd better hurry up and make amends.

I got married today. It rained all day and stopped for the 20 minutes we had our ceremony and then it picked up again. But the rain stopped for us, at just the right time. It sounds strange but i think that means the sky was approving of us getting hitched.

I parked in the reserved parking lot at work without a parking pass. After work, I didn't feed the parking meter, as I had forgotten my coin purse and I was running late for my appointment. I didn't get a parking ticket either time. I think I will buy a lottery ticket tomorrow.

I bumped into him for the second time in two weeks. We go home together and it's like things had never been any other way than this. We talk like we are different, better people this time around, except once again he has talked me into his bed and once again won me over against my better judgment. Here I am feeling like a fool because I haven't heard a word from him since. I am the biggest dumbass ever, but only with this one person in the world.

January 14, 2005 - the day I made an entry on this journal - what did I write you ask? I wrote that I had met the man I was going to marry! Can you believe that?? INSANE RIGHT? Well it gets better - the crazy man that I met on that day proposed to me today!!! I can't believe it, I am getting married... to make the whole thing even more spectacular he asked me in the most amazing and craziest place on Earth - Delicate Arch in Moab, Utah. In all honesty I am scared, nervous, and in disbelief over the whole thing. This is a life long commitment and I really want our relationship to work. We have been doing great for the most part, but wow... I believe I am ready for this and in all reality nothing should change with the exception of my last name and how we file our taxes right? :) Oh man... so crazy but so exciting!

I just finished watching "Terry" on CTV. To this day, what Terry Fox did still amazes me. Why haven't we found a cure?

Today I fly to Taiwan to study culinary. I'm hoping this will mark the end of old Ginger and the beginning of a new Ginger. I can't bear doing art anymore because... well, if you've ever read this little book called "Art & Fear"... I'm suffering from the Fear. I hope things will be different when I come back. I hope I will be... better. Braver.

Today I'm moving away from my home town and heading to a new province. I'm leaving my successful career to go back to grad school in search of something more rewarding. Plus I'm moving in with my partner for the first time. We're doing the eight hour drive today, beginning this new adventure together.

I had this nagging feeling all day that I would see him. I kept thinking that I saw his car or the back of his head. And by a fluke of timing and accidently walking in the wrong direction I ended up sitting on a random bus with him. What are the fucking odds? he came over and sat with me and we talked like nothing was wrong like nothing bad had ever happened between us, like the last nine months of silence hadn't happened. And all I could think was that my feelings for him were just as strong as they had ever been.

Michael Vick makes me physically ill. If I ever meet him, I don't know if I'll be able to stop myself from stabbing him in the face.

I better decide soon whether I want to get married or not... I think I would be satisfied being married to him. Not deliriously happy, not in ecstacy every single day. Maybe there are even men out there I would be happier with. But I love him. And I think it might be worth it. It might be.

I spent the day googling my high school classmates looking for an old friend. I found this Jeff Harris instead. Enjoyed... but if the other Jeff Harris reads this, please contact me:

It's been four days and all I can think of is him. Maybe I should've let him kiss me. But really, three hours isn't nearly long enough to let someone kiss me. I could see his lips coming closer and closer, with thoughts racing through my mind, the one that screamed loudest out of all was "I don't know how to kiss". And that was the only reason I pulled away.

My dad came home from work five hours early. He told my brother and I it was the hardest thing he ever had to tell anyone... My mother had lost her seven year battle with Breast Cancer and passed away at 10am.

I listened to "Shine On You Crazy Diamond (Parts I-V)" by Pink Floyd on repeat three times today.

Today I went to a boring training session for a job I'm nervous to start. While walking to lunch with some new colleagues, I saw Jeff Harris riding his bike past Maple Leaf Gardens. I was too embarrassed to tell my new friends that the reason I stopped dead in my tracks is because I recognized somebody from the internet for the first time ever...

I have never wanted anything so badly as I want out of this marriage. But, I feel so sorry for him. He's going to be terribly lonely and miserable without us. The counselling isn't helping, although he thinks it is. He is going to be so sad. But, I've already hired an attorney and a counsellor to help me with a plan.

I think I am addicted to sleeping pills and Xanax... my so-called "happy pills". i have had insomnia for as long as i can remember, but never anything this severe. The ambien puts the churning thoughts to rest. During the day, it is regrettable that the Xanax is the only thing that makes me relaxed to where I actually feel comfortable in my own skin. Somewhere along the way, life and some poorly timed trauma broke me. I am now one of those people who reaches for those orange prescription bottles like you would your vitamins. I have become remarkably good at self-loathing...

I turned 42 today, and rode as many miles on my bike. Was hoping that Douglas Adams was right about 42 being the answer to Life, The Universe, and Everything. Still decidedly unsure.

Every morning, when I get on the bus at 7:10am, I get to see this wonderful couple a few blocks down the road. They both look very young, in their 20s. Before he boards the bus, they kiss passionately, this impossibly long tender kiss. As the door closes, he walks to the back of the bus with her outside on the road doing the same. As he sits down, he blows her a kiss goodbye.

My therapist cancelled my apointment, which was good as I was too depressed to impress her today... It's the birthday of my ex-best-friend of 30 years. I ate two bowl of oatmeal to make me feel full.

I hid a secret care package in the city to cheer someone up. It contained a magical mix CD, among other things. I placed it behind a utility box, wrapped in wax paper. Then I emailed the Google co-ordinates to the special recipient. The next day, she found it. She liked it.

I went on this amazing 'hike' today in Cantwell, Alaska. It made me realize how much I have missed out on 'me' after marrying him and coming here. I think I am going to go back to Denver, my hometown, to find myself again. I miss my family, my friends, my Philharmonic, my church, my baseball games and my familiar mountains... I think that I got lost in the thought of loving Alaska and it being so exotic, but it's so disjointed that I feel unattached from life. I miss the city and the bright lights. I miss polution and traffic.

We were lying in bed spooning in a completly drunken but platonic fashion like we have been doing lately and he goes "I'm gonna kiss you, ok?" and I say "ok" because I am not thinking very clearly and I have no reason to really say no. We start making out and I start laughing... is that terrible? He is my best guy friend and not once have I ever considered him as anything but a friend. I end the makeout sesh because I'm weirded out and we go to sleep. I wake up and he is his normal self and all I can think about is doing it again and I'm kicking myself for making him think I'm not into him. I spent the entire day with him, with him treating me like the same friend as always, and me being awkward and wanting him. Today SUCKED!
