Meg and I took a trip a few years back, right after my sister's wedding to Algonquin for a canoe trip. Canoe tripping is one of my favourite summer time activities, so I've been eager to do it again but Meg being in Bolivia and getting ready for our wedding meant we didn't really have a chance the last two years. This year presented an opportunity, and a couple of our friends Shoshanah and Thomas were interested in going (their first time) and they did the leg work of booking the permit for Labour Day Weekend and so we were all set.
Earlier this spring Meg and I received an invitation to her friend Robin's wedding. We were pretty impressed by the turn-around time between the proposal earlier this year and the wedding, I think there might have been 5 months between the two. Meg had actually stopped in to Bristol on her way back from Bangladesh on what turned out to be the day after Robin proposed to Helen, so we were kind of in on the ground floor.
Wow, it has been three months since my last post. I promise I'll catch up later this week. As a teaser, here are some things I'll blog about:
- Weddings, weddings, weddings
- Quick trip to the UK
- Canoe trip in Algonquin
- Starting my MBA (while working full time)
- Biking in the County
- Suffering through the Flu
- First Anniversary
I don't know that they'll all be individual postings, but that's a lot of stuff to cover.
This May (man I am still so far behind in this blogging thing this summer) Meg and I used up some Aeroplan points and flew out to Prince Edward Island for the long weekend. The trip was important for a couple of reasons, first and foremost, it gave Meg and I a chance to get out and see my grandparents who weren't able to make it our wedding in October. A close second was a chance to visit with the rest of my relatives who for various reasons weren't able to make it. Finally, it gave Meg and I chance to enjoy a long weekend away :)
The newspaper/journalism industry is in an upheaval with the ongoing steady erosion of advertising revenues (some of which are moving to the Internet) and the destruction of classified revenues which have all moved online (eBay, Craiglist, Kijiji, you name your own online classifieds provider).
Man, painting sucks. Meg and I spent our four day Easter weekend putting a "refresher" coat of paint on the rooms in our house. It is of course a tragic use of four days off in the row, but it will help our social lives this summer.
