The MS Rona Bike Tour Recap

Our bikes resting over lunchWhere has the time gone?! While it's only been 3 or 4 months since my last blog post the subject of that post happened nearly 11 months ago! Ouch. Anyhow, now that the MBA (post on that to come soon) is wrapped up I better get back on the blog horse and talk about what's gone on this summer. First things first though, Meg and I took part in the MS Rona Bike Tour from Ottawa to Kemptville a few weekends back and had a blast.

Our First Anniversary - A Post that is only 8 months late...

Wow... My life sometimes feels too busy, but really, it isn't and I have few excuses for not writing an entry about my anniversary or any of the things that have happened in the intervening 8! months. Eight months... crazy. That means it's not much more than 4 months until Meg and I will have been married for 2 years. It feels like only yesterday that we were standing at the front of her parents church, while in other ways it feels like we've been together forever, but we're only just approaching 5 years of being together as a couple.

Biking in the County and Battling a Fall Flu

Not long after I started my MBA, Meg and I traveled down to Ajax and Belleville for the weekend. We left on a Thursday and spent the night in Belleville before I hit the dentist (yes, I still visit a dentist in Belleville) early Friday morning. We both spent the morning working and then we made our way to Ajax to attend our friend Adam's Friday evening wedding ceremony. The wedding was fun and gave Meg a chance to catch up with a bunch of her friend's from her time doing her Masters degree. We enjoyed our evening there and then hit the hay in a hotel for the evening.


Wow, where did 2009 go? As I promised months ago (sorry) I'm about to fill you in on my initial impressions of my MBA, how midterms (and now finals) went and generally how things are going.

Labour Day Weekend Canoeing in Algonquin

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.

A Week in Cornwall and a Wedding

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.

A Summer and Fall of Weddings

Meg and I are at that age, an age where we've got a lot of friends and relatives getting married. This year might have been the peak when it comes to number of weddings that we'll be going to though with five separate weddings attended.

Gotta Catch Up

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
  • Midterms

I don't know that they'll all be individual postings, but that's a lot of stuff to cover.
