Here we go again

Posted by andrea in: Oh! Things!

Listen up.
My thirty-something-but-really-TWENTY NINTH birthday is coming up. Soonly! August 19th to be precise.

I am longing, truly, madly, deeply LONGING to ring the occasion in with a pair of roller skates. There is NO better gift for someone like me. See for yourself. I think I like these better than the previous pair I bid on… the ones I loved and lost. :(

Ebay. You are a fickle mistress.

My dear friends. Please tell me you love me… AND that you love me enough to contribute to my birthday roller skating fund. I will give you undying gratitude in return. (!)

Edited to add: I know we’re totally broke. I know there is money that needs to be spent elsewhere, but the skates are MINE now! BWA-HA HA! ;)

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
