My trip to Mexico is just around the corner, and the excitement is about to bubble over. We (Erin and I) fly out of Calgary just after midnight on Thursday, and then we’ll be landing in Cancun around lunchtime.
In preparation for the trip, this weekend has been a whirlwind of chores. I ran up to a work event on Saturday, then prepared a dish and went to a coworker’s party in the evening. Today, I grocery shopped with Thomas, went to the gym with Kaila, picked up a suitcase from Erin for the trip, started laundry, cooked like a mad fiend (I have salads for the rest of the week for lunch, yum!) and started in on a bottle of red this evening.
Still a lot to do, followed by a well-earned hot shower, but it’s been a good day and evening! What I’m not looking forward to is the pile of work I have to complete before I go. It figures; the second a vacation is on the books is when the work starts coming in hard and fast.
In any case, I’m excited about the account we’re working on, and it’s the first time I could really take a leading role in one so it’s a double-win for me.
I’ve been neglecting my writing in all areas, and it’s hard to get going again. Everything feels fragmented and awkward when I put my fingers to the keyboard. Sentences don’t flow like they used to and it’s harder to start or know when to stop.
Having said that, I’m going to finish this entry here, and just vow to try it again and do a little better tomorrow. It’s all you can do, right?
