I Beat The Internet. The End Guy Is Hard
Posted on October 24th, 2010 in Featured, Migration Paths, Three's Company
Has it really been 20 days since the last time I posted? Time certainly does fly when one is busy.
We recently celebrated Thanksgiving here in Canada, and I had the great pleasure of hosting dinner for a number of friends, including LD, V, P, Aiden’s brother and sister-in-law, and M. Much food was eaten, wine was drank, and a wonderful time was had by all. It was the first time I’ve been able to have a bunch of people over in several years, and it felt like old times, everyone sitting around the kitchen table and laughing.
A couple of our pals were hopeful that we would host an epic house party for Halloween, but we are not quite ready for that yet, and instead, I am putting together plans for a huge New Years Eve luau. We will also be hosting a grand Christmas dinner for anyone who is inclined to join us.
I’ve also been going to the gym and to the pool as often as I can. Aiden and I both purchased passes to the local rec center, and it’s been really good to start getting back in shape. V and I also picked up some snowshoes earlier this week, and we have plans to do some winter trekking with Jack, Aiden, and the kids once the snow flies. Much cheaper than skiing and an excellent workout all in one.
Unfortunately with all of the vanilla projects I’ve had on the go, there hasn’t been much time or inspiration for blogging, but don’t worry, I am not really gone. There is plenty to write about, it’s just finding the time to write it that seems to be the current glitch. I’m working very hard to finish unpacking and get the house set up just the way I want it before Christmas time rolls around. That, along with day to day chores, keeps me very occupied. I really should try blogging from my phone once in a while, since my free time usually occurs away from the house while I am waiting somewhere for something. Most of my computer time is spent playing StarCraft II (I know, I cringe a little just typing that. It seems I’ve become something of a gamer).
Speaking of which, I have a couple of trial passes if anyone is interested, heh.
Mostly we just keep on keepin’ on, in our own bizarre and unconventional way. Aiden and I are coming up on the 1 year anniversary of my collaring, and my 5th blogiversary is right around the corner, so thoughts on both of those things and updates of sorts should be coming down the pipe.
Bear with me during this lull. Moving always takes a lot out of me, both time and energy wise. I feel like picking up and transporting everything across the country is sort of like hitting the reset button on life. It takes a while to fire things back up and get our wits about us again. Plus there are a ton of demands in terms of social engagements and family obligations, which were mostly absent from life out east. It’s been interesting adjusting to our former level of insanity after several years of relative quiet on that level.
This too shall pass, and I promise this blog is far from it’s end days.
