Home Again Home Again

Clickity Click. 

A wonderful and productive time was had in Ottawa. 3 days jam-packed with cool, fun and interesting people with roadtrips on both ends.  Easter was lovely. Flowers blooming and lots of time with mom & Ger hanging out, visiting chez VV and eating.  Our traditional Hoagie meal was held at the last minute picnic-style  down by the Cataraqui (sp!?!) River with winds strong enough to blow my glasses off the table.

All in all an excellent adventure.

Lessons learned – I seem to fit a lot more people into my day when I’m on the road.

Action Items – start fitting my local friends into my day-to-day life more, ’cause I miss you all!

    It’s true – when you’re on the road, there’s no excuse NOT to see friends, whereas at home, there’s always something holding you back. Home improvements – laundry – really expensive chocolate – having to put pants on – the list is endless.
    I too am trying to make more of an effort towards seeing local friends (or, as I call it, “leaving the house with pants on”). Perhaps brunch is the first step?

    Oddly enough, I’m good at getting out of the house (especially after Ger has done one of his infamous lex-is-on-the-road-let’s-start-but-not-finish-reorganising-everything-tee-hee-hee.)
    I did, in fact, have lunch booked with a friend today, but she went into labour and cancelled. I thought I came up with creative excuses, but I have nothing on her.
    re: brunch – well… I’m keeping the faith. Perhaps the Great Pumpkin will bring me a brunch date. What’cha think?

    The Great Pumpkin? How did you know? Man, I TRIED to get them to take that picture of me in that orange sweater OFF THE INTERNET. If only I hadn’t signed that release . . .
    Brunch will happen. I can feel it. I’m going to put that orange sweater in the laundry right now.

    Didn’t your mommy warn you to be careful signing things? Especially things that involve photos and the internet and pumpkins.

    Clearly she was too busy having her “Linda” dry cleaned.
