~Lanie_momofone's committed 8 yr relationship without marriage ~living seperatly~Love Diary~
OK so first ...i will tell you a little bit about myself.
I am a Canadian, i have one child ...Hope. She is the greatest little girl and will be 9 in may.
I re-connected with my SO when Hope was just 15 months old (august 13th 2003). There was a nationwide black out, and the hydro (electricity) had gone out for about 3 days in my area ...the first night however my SO (stewart) sister came and got myself and Hope and took my back to her parents house because they had a generator..
Let me just add, that at this time i knew Stewart's family for 19 yrs...we grew up in the same neighborhood.
I had just seperated from my husband at the time, and was not looking for anyone to date ..by any means. I was very much happy to have my life to be just me and Hope.
But i spent three days at Stewart's parents house...on the last day when i came back, i had forgotten some items at their house. So i called to let them know i would pick them up the next time i was in the area ...
Stewart offered to drop them off to me that night, since he was already heading out of the house ...
He got to my home , and sat with me for a bit and chatted with me ...when he was on his way out the door...he took a chance and kissed me.
We started just seeing eachother ...it wasn't supposed to be anything serious as i had just seperated from my husband and he had not been in a serious relationship where there was a child involved...
But ...we have been together for going on 8 yrs (august 23rd 2003, is when we decided to give it a shot)...we have a weird relationship that seems to work for us.
We still do not live together after so long , however...Hope now see's him as the ONLY "daddy" figure in his life and has been calling him that for the past 4 yrs.
I look forward to keeping this diary and hope that you all enjoy reading it for the next two weeks!
