YAY birthdays!

When our initial plans for a birthday camping trip in Niagara fell through, I was happy enough to hang out in the city.

Yes, even though my bathroom was a black hole.

And even though it was supposed to rain. And even though I didn't have anything in particular in mind. So we stayed. And it turned out to be one of the best ever.

birthdays and bathrooms

My bathroom's under renovation.

It was going to go camping for this, my birthday weekend, but it fell through. No big deal. Now I get to spend quality time at home.

There's lots of stuff here I could talk about: the weird window situation. The heating duct that goes nowhere. The raised floor over old reno garbage. The sketchy wiring. It's OK though. I knew it would be the case. So we're redoing it all. And it'll be lovely.

In the meantime, I share my toilet with our back office. But I get a view of the backyard too, so it's not all bad.

And I got a birthday pedicure, so it's actually all good.

busy schedule?

What have I been doing?

How I know

There are days, you know, when things suck. I've had a few of those. Just take a look at a few of my Facebook statuses. On those days, I wonder what the hell I'm doing.

And then there are these days -- stretches of time, really -- when it's just all so sweet. When things are right.

I guess I wondered how I'd know when it was the guy. I mean, THE guy. The ONE. And people just said, "Oh, you'll know." Which I thought was pretty unhelpful, really.

And then I have weekends like this last one. It was restful and fun and silly. I never know that Gordon is the guy MORE than when I'm with family. It's just right. And I just know, without even thinking about it. (Even though I'm not supposed to talk about him on my blog, I figure he won't mind this one much.)

Happy Canada Day. I hope everyone had as restful a time as I did. Though less hangover would have been nice.
