It has been sunny here for almost 2 weeks now. I can’t believe. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect for my Mom and sister to visit me this past week. And that is why I haven’t written anything lately, Ariann – I’ve just been busy. I guess I was angered into silence a little bit, but, we’ll go with being busy. 😉
Mom and Shelley arrived Tuesday morning bright and early at 8:30 am. We spent the day traipsing around the city, as I had an orientation to attend. So, they hit the mall. The next day I had to teach in Coquitlam, so they went to the mall for another couple of hours again. And then we went to the Olive Garden in Langley for supper and waitied 2 hours for a table. Oy. That’s way too long to wait for food – even if it is the Olive Garden. On Saturday I had rehearsals, so they went to Granville Island. And on Sunday we walked around Stanley Park. Monday saw us going to Gastown (which has the coolest little button shop), to North Vancouver and the Lonsdale Quay on the SeaBus and then out to Metrotown to find Michelle a grad dress – and lo and behold, we were actually successful! They left on Tuesday morning at 7:00 am, which required a wake up call of 4:30 am. Oy again. We had SOOO much fun. It was so nice to have them here. Michelle had never been out here, so it was fun to watch her react to the flowers and all of the little things that are different out here. I miss them already…
I saw John Shurniak and his girlfriend Rebecca yesterday as well. They’re here staying at Rebecca’s grandparents. So, we trekked down to Granville Island and then walked over to Vanier Park. We had a great time, catching up and reliving old memories. It seems that things have changed a lot back at Luther, some good, some bad – like usual.
Going back to being angry, I still am. I’m still mad there’s no hockey, especially after hope was revived of a season this past weekend. And then Henry Burris. I just don’t know what to say anymore. I just don’t know. My Mom and I constantly checked for info about him on the Internet every spare moment of the day when she was here. If Henry really wants to be apart of the Riders, he’ll come back. If not – I don’t really want to think about him in a red and white uniform.
Other than that, things are speeding along here. I’ve almost got my recital programme figured out, I start orientating at my new job tomorrow and there seems to be lots to do. Finally. How wonderful it is to be busy again!
