I realize that I've forgotten to write about the other "exciting" things from the past week.

Last Friday, I went out for party party party with some former coworkers as they're leaving for greener pastures as well! Looks like I started an exodus. Oops.

It was nice to see everyone again. They're such a great group of people - I hope we don't lose contact.

Then I had to hurry over to another bon voyage party for a friend who's moving to Vancouver. She's going to work on sustainable developments for the Olympic Village. How exciting!

But I found out that she and her long-term boyfriend are breaking up to avoid the long-distance relationship. So, a bittersweet story, all in all.

Then Alex and I ended up at MaRS at 1am or so to pick up boxes for his move.

The moving day, I've written about. It was tough going, those first few days. I'm sure they were for Alex too. I'm sure he was freaking out. I'm not the easiest person to get along with. I'm pretty anal.

But things have been better, as noted in my last post. I think it's going to be OK. As several people have said: if we can make it through moving and living in a jr-1-bdrm apartment, we can make it through anything. Although I hear that renos are even more stressful.

Wednesday marked a couple of firsts:

  1. the MaRS walking club - I've started up a walking group for the whole building and we had 8 people out on our fist day! We walked about 3km during lunch, enjoying the sunshine, Queen's Park and the UofT campus.
  2. beach volleyball at Ashbridges Bay Park - It was pretty cold out in the beaches, but I had so much fun it was ridiculous. Even though someone decided we should be "intermediate" rather than "recreational" I'd say our skill level remains decidedly "recreational". Except mine, of course. I totally carry the team.;)
