Hi beautiful starfish,
Thanks for the list idea, I’ll give it a go. I’m really bad at putting things off, to the point of it having a negative impact on my life. I suppose there is something deep inside me which I’ve yet to deal with – at a subconscious level I must have a need to punish myself, or at least make life harder than it really needs to be. It’s something that I talked to Dr Hancock about last year, and he gave me some tools to combat it. Basically, fostering awareness in the moment, but I feel like it is a symptom of something deep inside of me and it won’t be completely resolved until I deal with the root cause. I would like to have a few more sessions with him, but will wait until I start working again. They really helped and I definitely feel much happier after talking to him. In the meantime, I’ll try what you suggested and also dig out my notes from the sessions with Dr Hancock just to refresh my memory.
And, I can be a couch potato as well. When I was working, Sundays were my day to stay at home and read and watch football or movies. I used to get pretty grouchy when I didn’t have a day to myself. Now is a bit different, of course.
You’re welcome for the poem and the vid. I like that kind of stuff, and I like sharing it with you because then I get to see your happy face :).
For Friday, there isn’t much playing at the movies this week. I think we have Don Jon, Runner Runner and Gravity. Not much to choose from, however let me know if any of these strike your fancy (I believe you mentioned something about Blackfish, or was it Black Water?), or if there is something else you’d rather watch. We can also do the ROM or just have an evening at my place with some food and catch something on Netflix. I’m pretty easygoing – I’m not too fussed about the activity, I just want to spend some quality time with you J. I’ll have a look around this afternoon to see if there are any cool events going on which we can attend and I’ll drop you a note later if I find anything of interest.
Have a great day sweetheart, I’m sending you lots of love and affection 🙂
Oh, and Friday is Free Hugs Day, so you know, be prepared 😛

So, this is what I have found:
Nuit Blanche is happening this weekend, but it is on Saturday. Not sure if this interests you: http://www.scotiabanknuitblanche.ca/
Les Miserables is playing at the Princess of Wales theatre. http://www.mirvish.com/shows/lesmiserables
Ai Wei Wei art exhibition at the AGO. https://www.ago.net/aiweiwei/
La Boheme is playing at the COC. I’ve never been to an opera. http://www.coc.ca/PerformancesAndTickets/1314Season/LaBoheme.aspx
Mesopotamia exhibition at the ROM. http://www.rom.on.ca/en/mesopotamia/home
Chinese Portraits of the Ming and Qing Dynasties exhibition at the ROM. http://www.rom.on.ca/en/exhibitions-galleries/exhibitions/current-exhibitions/faces-to-remember-chinese-portraits
Hmmm, okay that’s a lot of cultured stuff. I’m not married to any of it, just throwing a few ideas out there. I’ll be just as happy sitting around having a quiet evening just talking and enjoying each other’s company J
Let me know what you think.

It sounds like you are almost ready to get back to the workforce again 🙂 but once you start work, you’ll miss having time to yourself. I really like how you can do what you like everyday, set your own schedule and at your own pace.
As for procrastination, start a checklist with a deadline beside each task. It’s is a very good way to remind you of things you need to compete. But I am sure having more sessions with Dr. Hancock is helpful because you learn new coping techniques and he can help with identifying underlying problems that you don’t realize. But that you will have to wait til you get back to work and have the sessions covered by insurance 🙂 however, I do think you are perfect in my eyes the way you are.
As for Friday, I do want to watch a movie. Don Jon and gravity seems good, so I am ok with both. Not runner runner though. Do you have a preference? Gravity is a 3D movie though, I remember you said you’re not a big fan of 3D movies?
And same here, I just to see you on Friday so whatever the activity is, I will still be as happy because you are a great company 🙂
I am looking forward to a hug marathon! Have a great evening baby boy 🙂

Thanks for the list, I didn’t realize your sent me a new email after I replied the previous one.
So… Out of the list of events, I went to the Ai Wei Wei exhibition already, it was ok. I am not good at appreciating operas and I have to work on Saturday during nuit Blanche. As for the portraits of ancient Chinese dynasty, I have been up countless exhibitions of those.
In conclusion, ROM Mesopotamia exhibition interest and watching a movie interest me the most, so I should let you pick 🙂

That’s what I like about you, you can read me. You’re right, I am ready to get back to work. I’m really hoping that this project with the Kane Group comes through in the next few weeks because that would be ideal. I’ll miss the free time for sure, but this time off has taught me that I need to do a better job of balancing work and play. If I go back to doing what I was doing before I’ll just burn myself out again.
And, thanks for the compliment, that really means a lot to me sweetheart. Especially because it comes from you J. I pulled a list together this morning, and started on it this afternoon. Which means that after I finished working on the Atlantis financials, I went and got tested for STDs at a free clinic on Church Street.
I’ll tell you a little bit more about it on Friday, but they took blood and urine samples, and also did a physical exam of my genitals. The Doctor said that everything looks good/normal, and based upon my sexual history and the fact I have no symptoms of any kind the chances of me having something is basically none. I’ll have the results from the test in 10 days and will share them with you. Unfortunately, I have to do the HIV test separately. The Doctor tried to talk me out of having it done because he thought it would be a waste of time, however I booked an appointment for the 15th anyway. That was the earliest I could do it and I’ll have the test results on the same day.
I’m sorry, sweetie, I should have done it sooner, especially after we decided to have a normal relationship. I know I’m clean, but that’s really no excuse, I should have been a little more considerate of you.
For the movie, both have received really good reviews on Rotten Tomatoes and I really want to see Don Jon because it has what I think will be a profound message on sex and relationships, however let’s go for Gravity. You’re right, I’m not a huge fan of 3D, however I’m okay with watching this one in 3D. Apparently the visuals in this movie are stunning, so let me know if you’d like to do the IMAX or AVX screening at Scotiabank. IMAX is at 3:30pm and AVX is at 4pm – I’m okay with whichever strikes your fancy.
I’m looking forward to seeing you on Friday, gorgeous J

Thanks for replying so promptly 🙂 I got home an hour ago and decided to watch the breaking bad finale, it’s sooo good!
Anyways, thank you for letting me know you went and gotten the std test done. I trust you a lot, but having a regular check up doesn’t hurt. So on my end, the last std test I took at a gynecologist’s office was half a year ago and the report was fine. As for the HIV test, I took it last year in October along with a regular physical exam. It’s time for me to book an appointment too 🙂 actually its compulsory for me to have a physical exam every year because it’s the policy in the hospital I work in. But we will get into this topic on Friday 🙂
Let’s watch Gravity then!! I think it will be a great movie 🙂 like all the trailer showed was Sandra bullock floating in space, it didn’t tell us anything about the storyline, so I can’t wait to find out what this movie is about lol
Lets watch the 4 pm show, the avx auditorium is nicer 🙂 we can meet at the theater at around 3:30? So you can be there at 3:45 lol you know how my clock is always 15 mins behind ;P
I can’t wait to see you in Friday! Goodnight darling sweetheart 🙂

Hi sweet baby girl,
Yeah, I need to have a full physical exam as well. I usually have it once a year, but haven’t so far this year. I’ll have to sort that out once I get back to work – it’s important that I do it regularly.
Lol – I hope the critics don’t let me down and this movie turns into us watching Sandra Bullock floating in space for 90 minutes J. I think it will be good too, so I’ll see you tomorrow at 3:30pm. I mean, 3:45pm ;p lol my sweet baby panda bear J.
Have a great day, gorgeous 🙂
