Spending Friday Night Together Sometimes Looks Like This
Sometimes spending time together looks like this – me reading and him playing video games. I do not enjoy video games and he doesn’t enjoy reading, but we enjoy spending the evening together. So tonight while he played insurgency, I curled up next to him with Mad Honey by Jodi Picoult and Jennifer Finney Boylan.
You don’t have to be doing the same thing to be spending time together, we have learned over our 24 years as a couple. Sometimes it’s enough to just be on the same couch happily doing things you each enjoy.
Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
