Is anyone else in a mood? We’re still on holidays here in Canada until the first week of September but I tell you I’m really getting ready for the routine to return. Every year, every late summer, I find that the lack of UNINTERRUPTED time to myself for even just a couple of hours a day has me feeling very out of sorts.
So last night I slept all alone in the house.
Hello Monday! I am, and have been craving marinated olives and feta cheese. 😊
Dog walking in Toronto’s neighbourhoods is in actual fact a fairly decent part-time gig. Unlike in some parts of Europe where you may only make a few coins to look after a dog, here the pay is enough to supply groceries for a family of four if you walk four to five times a week.
The standard rate, according to research in my city, is around $18-25 per half hour for one dog.
HALF an hour. That’s 30 minutes of walking and socializing with a dog.
Not too shabby, right?
As I sit here wallowing in self-pity, I tell myself: it’s temporary.
These depressions I get are a pain in the ass. I have nothing but first world problems.
I have seen recent pictures of Germany, Switzerland, places in the UK and even Vancouver on Canada’s west coast. Spring seems to have sprung in all those places.
Here in Toronto?
Yesterday was puppy day.
I had a weird experience today.
I live in denial at least half the time I’m awake.
It’s a special talent I have.
The struggles, the turmoil, it tugs at me, pulls me deeper into my self.
I wonder what is going on.
Today I took my boy to Costco to get his passport photo done. And mine, too. Both of us are due to renew…
It appears a trip to Switzerland is in the works. My girl child is pestering me to death, and my family in Europe had given us a standing invitation, so now I’m finally figuring out what dates would be suitable.
For that we need current passports, of course, which is why we were at Costco. They have good prices there. 🙂
