YAY! The sun came out again!

I haven't been on here much at all since I started working, but we're still alive! Jason left early this morning, they play tomorrow in Regina. So its just me and Lola tonight! My plan was to spend the weekend cleaning and cooking (since I do neither at all during the week!) but today when I woke up, the sun was out! It has been so cold and rainy, we've had the fireplace on all week. But now its just cool and clear and sunny... I think Lola and I might spend the weekend outside!

Stupid head cold....

My wonderful husband brought home a head cold from Montreal last week, and he was so thoughtful... he brought back one for me too. My head hurts. My sinuses hurt. My eyes are all puffy. Did I mention my head hurts? And I kept waking up last night because I had to cough... stupid head cold....

Commuting in Vancouver

I learned today that big city commuting kinda sucks!!! I now have my daily routine down though: to get to work, I walk 10 minutes to the train (subway) station. I take the train for 20-25 minutes. Then I get off the train and wait in line with a few hundred UBC students for the bus. Today we stood and watched 3 buses come and go, while the line barely moved because the buses were so full no one else could get on. Ok, so I finally get on the bus (standing room only) and ride down the street for another 15 minutes. Of course, this bus stops no where near my job, so I get off the bus and have another 5 blocks to walk before I finally get to work. All in all, it looks like it will take 75 minutes to get to work in the morning, and an hour and a half to get home at night.

Craziest part? I kind of like it!

(Now, ask me again when its raining in January and I might have a different answer for you...)
