Wow, time sure flies!
What's new, you ask? Let's go with a bulleted list. Because there's been THAT much!
- I was evacuated during the big flood of 2013. I live a block from the Elbow river, so was smack dab in the middle of it all. Fortunately, my building is built on a berm. We had nary a drop of water touch our heritage building (built in 1921). My neighbours, however, were not so lucky. There's so much damage in my neighbourhood. The building directly across the street from me, for example. They're out for 3-4 months. My landlord's friends, who lost not only their home, but their businesses too. I am incredibly fortunate. Which reminds me, I need to check my lottery ticket from that week!
- Nermal & I spent the first weekend with my mom, then I borrowed my brother's car and stayed in Cochrane with my friend Christie. We had a blast together and more than one batch of watermelon mojitos were consumed. =)
- Started a year-long nutrition and fitness adventure with my friend, Michelle! This was the first week. I like the flexibility of the program and that we start with baby steps. This week our habit was fish oil and probiotics. I got 100% compliance on that one. The workouts, not so much. I'm not a big fan of weights so I've been resisting somewhat. But between me and my coach, we've come up with substitute exercises that don't have me going to a gym (I'm SOOOO not a gym girl) or spending oodles of money on equipment. The best part of this gig is the mantra. I LOVE it!
START WHEREVER YOU ARE.
USE WHATEVER YOU HAVE.
DO WHATEVER YOU CAN.
- I've got a new beau. I'm a smitten kitten. As is Nermal. She loves him, too.
- My new job rocks.
OK, so my list isn't that long, but it's full of big stuff! Tonight I'm heading down to Folk Fest. Steve Earle is headlining. Where else would I be?
