First week back at work

Farmers' fields in PEI this past Spring

Well, I survived my first week back at work. It was rough at first because I had some trouble snapping out of my vacation schedule of sleeping from about 12:30 A.M. to 10:00 A.M., but eventually I exhausted myself enough that I made it back to my work schedule...pretty much.

The week went by quite quickly and I capped it off with an evening and night with my Sweetheart last night, our last one for two months since he's leaving for Haiti in the middle of the night Tuesday and until then he and his brother are helping their sister move into her condo (finally!!!!) and on Monday I have choir practice and he has a ton of last minute work and packing to do. Although I'm sad to see my Sweetheart go and I know I'm going to miss him, his time in Haiti is going to do him some good. When he's there, it is much, much easier for him to disconnect and he is also not constantly being called upon by his family for everything under the sun. It will give him some time to relax and he will also be able to kick his seasonal effective disorder to the curb since he will be in the sunshine pretty much all day every day. I just wish I could go with him and we did think about it, but I am not fully vaccinated for Haiti and getting all my vaccines done would cost me a fortune. I would also almost certainly get travelers diarrhea and be rendered useless for most of my visit as well as miserable. So yes, all in all it will be better for me to stay here and hope that my Sweetheart will, as he hopes, be able to come home for a bit at some point.

Aside from that, not much is going on. I have some beef stroganoff cooking in my crock pot and will have to kick myself in the behind at some point soon so I can make it out to the store to buy some kibble for Quinn and Magique and I would also like to go and sign myself up at the sports facility at the Université de Montréal so I can go and use their running track. I'm getting a four month membership so I'll be set up until I can start running outside again in the Spring. I'll also be in amazing shape by the time my Sweetheart comes home since I'm planning to run three times a week.

Oh and speaking of my Sweetheart once again, not only has his sister finally gotten all her stuff out of his place, but he and E made an offer to rent some office space on St-Denis street downtown yesterday, praise the Lord! I'm glad he won't be working from home anymore as that will encourage him to keep more regular working hours. It is way to easy to work way too much when you work from home!


  1. glad to see you were able to spend some time together before he goes; and I hope also he can fly back for a few days for your birthday.


  2. I'm also glad that you were able to spend some time with your Sweetheart before he goes to Haiti. I know it's difficult to be apart, but continue to think positive, keep busy (I know that's not a problem for you--You are way too busy!) and I have no doubt something will work out and he'll be able to come home for a visit!
