So I finally did it. I ventured out of my home, sans baby, for the first time. And you know what? It was awesome. Probably one of the best nights I've had in a long time.
What did I do, you ask?
I attended a live recording of Q with Jian Ghomeshi in Montreal. I'm so glad that I went. It was funny, thought provoking, re-affirming, and full of great music. It made me remember why I love Montreal so much. Honestly, after a few years of just terrible stories in the news, ranging from corruption scandals, le printemps erable, to the new proposed charter of values, it's been hard to love this province. But Jian was right when he started the show in saying that when you're in Montreal, you know you're some place special and even though it feels hard to remember these days, watching local talents on the stage while listening to insightful commentaries on media portrayals of current events makes it easier to remember again.
I'm so glad that I went. Honestly, it was the perfect night out to get my brain back into life beyond mama-dom. And honestly, I just think Jian Ghomeshi is the bomb. Yup. He (and his team) work so hard to be informed about the topics he presents. I'm in awe of what his reading/research schedule must be.
As for Paul and Liam, they were just fine without Mama. And you know what that means.... I foresee more baby free adventures in my future!
