The Area

Hey there. Haven’t posted in a while.

I swear, moving to this region has totally changed my life. Ok, so going through a divorce will change my life too….but that aside…it’s amazing.

Pre-move, I woke up at 5am, arrived at work at 8am, left work at 5pm, and got home around 7pm, worked out, ate, and rushed to get ready for the next day.

I wake up at 6 or 630pm. I leave work at the same time (although I might stay a bit later now that I can to make up for some missed time), I get home, work out, eat, clean/unpack a bit, walk the dog AND IT’S 8PM. I have 2 hours with….NOTHING TO DO. Of course, there’s moving stuff that I could do non-stop, but I’ve decided to leave my place a mess and slowly work on it, instead of killing myself and not eat supper until 10pm like I tried to do the first week.

Last night after all was done, I grabbed the dog, went to Dollarama for a few things and the grocery store (where I took Maggie in with me – I carried her in a reusable bag…she was a champ!!), and then stopped for a mini-cone at the gelato place.

Ok, so don’t get me wrong. I’m going through a pretty stressful process and I have A HUGE swing of emotions every day….multiple times a day. Some days are better than others, some days I wonder how I possibly can make it through ONE MORE MINUTE. Last Saturday was a pretty big mess – ending up with me having a level 10 meltdown ON THE MAIN FREEWAY and there were no exits to be found. Not pretty. I was exhausted the rest of the day but had committed to helping my friend (also going through a divorce) and I thought that getting out would do me good. WRONG. I was sleepy, a bit disoriented, and should have just stayed home.

Also, my place is furnished by a younger guy. I have a papasan chair (google it!) and one arm chair, and my mattress and box spring are on the floor. But, it’s details. Maggie is loving it, I’m loving it…I feel like I actually have a life. It’s not all unicorns and skittles….the rough days are there, but living so close to work and in such a cool area helps me a lot.

I'll try to take more photos of my place and the's toooooo cute!!
