Dating at a Distance

Have I mentioned that the Boy is moving away? He’s in the Navy and they’ve posted him out East for the beginning of July. I think we’re both kind of torn up about it. And while I’ve known that this was coming for a while , I kept thinking, “Oh July is so far away, pshaw. There’s loads of time for the two of us.”

But it’s feeling real now. He’s making trips home to say goodbye to family and friends. He’s flying out to Nova Scotia to look for an apartment. Cutting loose ends. Prepping.

The good news is two-fold: we’ve decided to date at a distance, and that means I’m going to be visiting the East coast!

Tell me, have you ever dated someone at a distance? How did you guys make it work?



Bed Bound Monday

Oh stress, why do you rob me of precious slumber? Lately I’ve been waking up at an ungodly hour (this morning it was 5:30 a.m.), sick with worry. I never do this. No seriously. I usually sleep like a baby. It’s funny what stress will do to you. I think what I need to do is take a giant chill pill (preferably gulped down with some lemon water) and then I need to take a giant nap (preferably in this bed).



Have a Colourful Weekend

Hello darlings. It’s Friday. It’s time to hang up your work hat and chill out. Do you have big bold plans this weekend? Or quiet, calm plans? I’m having beers with my sister on Saturday, heading for brunch with my Nanny on Sunday and then I think I’ll pop over to the Canadian Museum of Civilization that afternoon to take in the Maya exhibit. Otherwise, I’m getting my wheels turning on a new project I’m working on. Don’t you love putting on your creative hat and planning something special? It’s so refreshing. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend!
