On the Road

The family is in transit from Nova Scotia to Winnipeg. I'm going with them as far as Montreal then heading down to southern Ontario to see family. Right now we're in Woodstock, NB. It's been a good first day of travel. Not sure when I'll have internet access again.

Yesterday was a sister day. While the parents dealt with all the details of packing up, loading, and cleaning the house Lee-Ann and I had the whole day to ourselves. I love my sister. We went shopping, made lunch, watched a Barbie movie, went swimming, and had supper at MacD's (Lee-Ann picked there for the playroom). It was a full day of joys. I just really had fun with my sister. She's like a fish in the water, it reminded me how much fun water can be. A good day.

I've moved into my new apartment this past week (pictures to come). I have an appointment to hook up internet on the 7th. See you then.

#18 and #19

More challenges finished. This past Monday I took my mom out for lunch and dinner and had a great girls day out. Yeah for Challenge 18 completed.

Challenge 19: On the return journey I had 22 hours stop over in Vancouver. It was my first time in the city (not counting airport stops) I took some time to explore a bit, saw the downtown. Visited a Chapters. Good times.

Leaving On A Jet Plane

Well my bags are packed (at last!) and I’m 98% ready to go.
I still detest packing. I shiver at the thought of packing. It was a good show of how much stuff I accumulated in a year, lots and lots of stuff. I crammed as much as was humanly possible in my luggage and the rest will be shipped home.

Not everything can return home. Somethings are just extra stuff I don't need, somethings are too big, and somethings are worn out. The latter is true for a pair of my favourite sandals of all times. To the garbage they go. It is a sad time. I take this moment to share with you my journey with my shoes. I got them a few years back at a BBC dorm sale (I think they might have been Jo’s) for three dollars. They did great at the camp thing, joined me Africa, and where my standard footwear for the past year. Especially with the having to take shoes off in and out of buildings. I know they are only shoes and this is silly: but I like them, I will miss them. So please take a moment for my departed sandales.
