I’m home.

22 Jan

And exhausted. And sad, because I really did not want to leave Toronto. I miss that place in my bones, I miss good food, I miss being surrounded by people I don’t understand, walking in neighbourhoods where I can’t read the language, seeing new things, stumbling upon interesting stores and scenes, old houses.

Life, and culture. I miss it dearly.

But alas, I am back in the armpit, and up to my ass in work. I didn’t get much done last week, and apparently, having the addition of a lackey just created MORE work for me. Don’t ask me how that happens.

Oh, and apparently, Air Canada now overbooks and only guarantees your seat if you pay extra. So here’s a big FUCK YOU to Air Canada for that hour or two of annoyance while I waited to see if I’d get to spend an extra 5 hours  at Pearson. Fuckwits.

More later. Must work. I will eventually be around. I promise.

    I was just thinking about you, wondering if you’d come home yet.

    And ug did you see that whistleblower report on Air Canada where they said they lose 5000 bags a day? Ug I hope when I go to get my dog, I don’t have to fly Air Canada. But of course I probably will. I already had a friend lose her bag coming back from puppy school.

    So what are the chances of getting back to Toronto?

    I’ve thought much about moving to Charleston, SC, where Anna’s brother lives. Luckilly, unlike you, I don’t hate where I live. But it would be nice to be closer to her brother and family, nearer to the ocean, and away from cold winters.

    Until we do a LOT of work on the house, the chances are nil. Even then, we don’t want to live IN Toronto (couldn’t afford it with kids). We want to go to London, but then we need jobs, at least 5k to move our crap back..if it was just us, we’d bite the bullet, but it’s a little different with kids, especially this young.

    I wish I liked where I lived. I really do. I like my house and backyard, so I’m good until I go out somewhere. 🙂

    Yay London! But, see, the kids! You want the kids in a good London school–I just happen to know a couple. And Bell is always hiring–plus kick ass benefits there. COME TO LONDON!!!!!
