After driving 5 hours yesterday (plus stops in Oshawa to visit Alex's family and for lunch and pee breaks) we got to our hotel in Ottawa (Arc) quite late.

I took a nice leisurely bath and then crashed for a nice nap while Alex went out exploring. I woke up and started reading my book until Alex got home 3 hours later. We went out for a lovely dinner on Elgin St. before cowering under our hotel-supplied umbrella back to our room.

And, DAMN, did I sleep!

I managed to catch up with Will and Lisa for brunch while Alex went to work at the Governor General's House. I even did some sale grocery shopping before going back to their place to watch "King Arthur". Not a bad movie, though it seemed long. Still, it was quite different from anything I'd ever read on the legend -- and I've read a lot.

At least it has all kept my mind off of my stupid moving horrors.
Now all I have to do is pick up Alex from work, and drive home for another 5 hours. Ugh.

Have I ever mentioned how much I dislike driving?
Alex rented us a Dodge Magnum. Damn, it is a BEAST! Considering it's just the 2 of us, I'm not sure WHY exactly we needed such a huge vehicle. However, apparently it's GREAT for those who would otherwise buy an SUV (ie: not me).

Anyway, it's comfortable, but the model we have doesn't have cruise control. At least it forces me to pay attention...
