That is what I would like right about now. Just endless amount of cheese.
Ever since coming back to Calgary, I’ve been inhaling insane amounts of (safe) grains and cheeses, because it’s what I was really missing in Mexico. Just last night, Kaila and I managed to down two boxes of Annie’s White Cheddar shells and some nachos & salsa, and we both still wanted a third box of macaroni…
It’s been difficult to settle back into everyday Calgary life. I underestimated the impact that “vacation brain” would have on my functioning by about a million percent. Coupled with that is the cold I picked up somewhere in Mexico that refuses to just go away! Cold medicine + antihistamines (now that spring has sprung my allergies have EXPLODED) + vacation brain = a barely functioning Kylie.
However, the fact that I’m living in a haze completely separate from reality does not make the things that I need to get done magically go away. I submitted freelance drafts to a client on Monday, ran all my vacation laundry through the wash, and went back to work Tuesday. Now there’s dentist appointments to go to, grocery shopping that needs to be done (eating out every day gets expensive, y’all), and preparations to make. I need to get to Edmonton June 6-9 for a consultation with my surgeon and an appointment with my orthodontist. I’m hoping that the surgeon will be able to tell me when my surgery date will be, but I’m not holding my breath; it seems odd to make a whole appointment to just tell me when he’ll be cutting my face.
That weekend is also the moving weekend for my cousin, and my aunt’s birthday weekend. We’re going to have a double-birthday party, since my 25th is the week after that on the 15th.
I love summer. There’s so much to look forward to! In addition to all of the above, there’s a weekend at Sylvan Lake with my friends, a potential camping trip, an engagement party, and two family weddings. What else can we get in there? Bring it, Summer 2013!
