Only Time

I've made commitments and I am sticking by those commitments. It is costing me more than it was supposed to though. They have taken me seriously about my end date with the company, but I can't help but think it's going to be a long haul to get there. And I'm already very tired.

And then I think, an opportunity like this comes along very rarely. I'm going to finish this job and be happy with not having a job after this. I am going to enjoy not having to worry about making a living.

I can't help but think though that time is the only non-renewable resource that even thousands of years can't help. Once it's gone, it's gone. There is no going back. Sacrifice now for more later. I think it'll balance out in my favour. Still, it's going to be a long two months.

Weird and wacky and wonderful things I've experienced lately:
1. Passing a Tim Horton's on the highway. Sounds common enough, but it was doing 70 kph.

2. I love sour Jelly Bellys.

3. I convinced my niece to go out shopping with me wearing her yarn ponytails. I absolutely loved it. She forgot that they were in her hair and we got some really good looks.

4. Learning the word "whinging". It's how Australians saying "whining". I love it.

5. The drive to and from the work site. The leaves changing colour on all the trees in the river valley near Fort McMurray is truly amazing.

6. Having been robbed and the insurance company being completely helpful so far. Of course, we haven't seen any money yet.

7. Applying my new chainmaille making skills and making several dice bags for friends. I'm very excited about this new hobby.

8. Getting help with my job so I'm not responsible for people again. I'm responsible for a balanced payroll. Tomorrow - first balanced payroll ever.

9. Waking up to sunshine through the trees overlooking a lake. No sounds of civilization to be heard. Just the voice of my beloved and a feeling of joy all through me.

That's all folks!

Worth Mentioning

There are a lot of things that I haven't had the time to sit down and record. I will start telling you about them now. It'll take me some time though so there will likely be several installments of Worth Mentioning.

Where to begin...

1. Well, a couple days ago when Cheruby and I took a wrong turn at Glaslyn and ended up in Meadow Lake rather than Turtleford, we decided to skip Edmonton for the night and just go straight to the Regional Municipality of Wood Buffalo. Then just after Lac La Biche, we took another wrong turn which only cost us about 20 minutes. And these two events along with the 4 or 5 pit stops along the way, meant that we got to see a lynx on the side of the road - slinking like cats do into the ditch. It was awesome. I want one. It made Cheruby and I really miss our kiddenzes.

2. Cheruby found his dream writer's retreat out at Drang's family home by a lake. It's wonderful. I knew he would absolutely love it. I think the best compromise is to build something similar out at our lake near my hometown. Unless he sells a script and then there's no telling what he'll do. [grin]

3. GenCon! Oh my goodness!! I should really devote an entire post to GenCon. I was so overwhelmed for two days that I didn't buy anything and I barely played any games. We went to the Video Games Live concert which was a lot of fun. And I loved dressing up in my costume. And I loved being able to make Cheruby so happy that he tells me that he has just had the best day of his life. AWESOME!!

4. Camping at Namekus Lake is always a treat. I had to bring work, but it was worth the trip. Our first night there, we had the pleasure of a light show put on by the neighbourhood fireflies. They were wonderful and magical. I feel like I should remember having seen them before, but I don't have any specific memories. And now I have this one and it was incredible.

Well, I guess that's enough for now. Tune in next time for more Adventures of Sparkling Suz. [grin]
