Evening #1 of the week without Alex.

Alex has headed out to Austria. He's pretty unhappy that
a) he has to fly at all b/c he hates flying
b) he's flying economy with Air Canada who apparently does NOT understand additional baggage needs
c) that he has a 5-hr layover in Frankfurt
d) he has to take a baby-plane to the little town he has to get to for the event he's working on over there.

Today, I saw "The Last Kiss" with my friends Sarah and Tanya. I really liked it. It was sad. I get very upset about movies that depict cheating men. Because I don't need any more reasons to think badly of the opposite sex. I want to believe in them as a race. I want to believe they're all like my brothers and my dad. I do. But they keep proving me wrong. At least there was hope at the end of this one. It did make me think about how much one has to work at a relationship. No matter how tough I think I am, I need to be better/more.

On Saturday night, Alex and I saw "Bon Cop, Bad Cop" - that Canadian French/English movie that's causing a lot of stir. Honestly? Don't see the big deal. I think Alex said it best when he said the movie had an identity crisis. It doesn't know whether it's a thriller, a comedy, an action movie or a political piece. It had some good moments, but it was a real mixed bag.

I biked around as much as I could this weekend, which makes me feel good. As well as being my sole source of exercise and saving me on gym fees, biking has saved me a lot on transit fees. And I've noticed that in some cases, I can actually get there faster than by taking the TTC.

Alex and I managed to spend most of Saturday together, which was nice, even though it was mostly doing errands for him so that he can leave on the aforementioned trip to Austria.

It was the most time I've spent with him since last weekend when we went to the Cabbagetown festival. I think I spoke to him for a total of an hour the whole rest of the week. Stupid work!

We did manage to get to aforementioned so-so movie on Saturday, and eat at one of our favourite spots: HoSu.

We also stumbled upon an open house in our neighbourhood. We guessed how much it would list at (we thought just under a 1/2-million). Turns out it's listed at $859K. Wow. It was a nice place, don't get me wrong. All newly reno'd. But even if I had the money, I certainly wouldn't spend it on THAT place. I felt even better about our house after that. Although we still have so much to do on it.

Which brings me to:

I made a list of the things I want to accomplish this week.

It ranges from small stuff like getting a haircut and doing some groceries to a big goal of planning out the next year of house work (and by "work" I mean reno's). That should be a lot of thinking. If anyone has an idea of HOW to plan this all out, please let me know.

I've got plans of seeing a couple of friends as well. I love being social.

But for now, I'm off to bask in a a full bed all to myself - hopefully to sleep enough to be able enjoy this partner-less week.
