Last week when both girls were gone during the day, we were BORED!!! It was cold and raining and there's only so much of chilling out and lovin' that can happen...so Louis came up with the idea to make cupcakes. So we made cupcakes.
Normally there are a gazillion festivals, but it's not really the season for it yet. Closer to the end of June every day there will be a music/comedy/arts festival of some kind, some where. But for now...this weekend...we got bored.
Saturday was a day of errands. Errands take us longer. Especially me. I keep writing my grocery list in English, which then means I have to do a Google Translate in the middle of the store. Did you to tarragon is estragon? I didn't. These aren't words that I ever would have used. Also...the layout of the grocery store is totally different...I have to go down each aisle...and GOD FORBID if I can't find anything. I just don't buy it. I look for it forever and then just try another store. I have NO IDEA what's wrong with me why I don't ASK SOMEONE THAT WORKS THERE, but for some reason I feel like with my accent, they'll think that I'm asking for chocolate-covered-pickled-fish or something. I totally need to get over my Fear of Sucky French Syndrome (FSFS) and act like I would in Alberta or anywhere else in the world really....baby steps...I guess.
Back to our weekend boredom. Saturday - all day errands with a Starbucks stop. Wow, I'm so happy (but so sad) that we live far from an SB!! I haven't been since Niagara Falls and I save soooooo much money!!!!!! Saturday night there was hockey and I had to get up early for my yoga studio work.
I'm very excited to write that I work four hours a week for all-you-can-yoga. A yoga class is $17. I bought a package where classes were $15 each...but that's a lot of $$$$$. So...when I saw the Service Exchange program, I was pumped! I get to practice my French, maybe meet people, work, and get paid in unlimited yoga classes! That's awesome because I don't have unlimited savings!!!
Today I focused on pilate machines. My goodness.
Anyway, we're still in a bit of a weird life situation. Every member of our household is job hunting, some more urgently than others. Louis and I aren't working, but we both feel like we should be doing something, so we busy ourselves with errands and cleaning and organizing (ok...maybe me a bit more on the cleaning and organizing)...and well, we kinda don't have a life. Like a, "Get Up, Go To Work, Come Home, Family Time, Eat Supper, Chores, Hobby, Bed" life. So it gets interesting. Or...rather the opposite. It can get kinda boring.
