Wow, I did not realise that it had been so long since I last posted here. I am a horrible livejournaler, it seems. It is much easier for me to keep up with my daily emails to Sherrie
, (well, almost
daily), probably because I don't really feel like I have to be particularly interesting with those. When emailing Sherrie, I can just say "Hey, nice that your motorcycle classes are going well. My life is boring. Miss you." Only for some reason it takes me about five paragraphs to say that. Those emails must be REALLY boring to read.
Anyway, things ARE new. I just haven't figured out overly dramatic or poetic ways to talk about them yet, so I haven't posted. I've given up on that front though, because if I waited until I thought I sounded intelligent, nothing would ever get written here.Susan
is home for the summer. Yay! She arrived about a week and a half ago. It's funny how your mind listens while you are sleeping, and only selectively wakes you up. Every morning this year I have slept through Mum and Dan getting up and getting ready for work and leaving, and I never remember hearing anything...but the morning Susan came home, all it took from her was one quiet laugh and I was wide-awake with the single thought of "Susie's home!"
It's nice to have her back!
In other news, I have changed my vacation plans slightly. Gabe has two weeks off at the beginning of June, so I am going down (across?) to see him then instead of in July. That means I will be in New Brunswick from June 7th to the 18th....close to where the picture in my lovely icon above was taken (that is Gabe in the icon). I am looking forward to it. I don't think we will be hiking Mount Carleton again, though that was fun, and it'd be nice to get up there on a day that is a little less misty...but we will definitely be having some fun times - there will be some alcohol involvement.
It will, however, be the first time that I am doing the drive alone both ways. Every other time I've driven to Gabe's farm, I've had company on the way there. I will be taking my favorite route alone the south side of the river, and I'll be bringing plenty of tunes, so I'm sure I'll have an enjoyable trip nevertheless.
After I come home, Emily is coming for a visit with her three kids for a couple of weeks...so that will be a bit crazy, but awesome. I haven't seen Emily for over a year now, so I'm really looking forward to it.
So yes, that is the update on my life, and also an explanation just in case the next entry is delayed for even longer that usual. Though, you never know, I always found that I did the most internet-participation during my most stressed out and busy periods. I think my problem these days is that I have all the time in the world, so I don't really organize any of it, and therefore I get nothing done...back when I was in school and stressed out, I actually had to MAKE time to do stuff, and for some reason that meant that things eventually got done.
Anyway, I think this entry has served it's purpose - I have avoided sleep long enough - no matter how long I stay up, I will still have to get up and go into work tomorrow.
