As I expertly predicted, my vacation and time in Nova Scotia did in fact come to an end.
Let's summarize the break, shall we?
3 weeks vacation:
2 major storms:
1 sucker punch:
2 root canals:
2 many nights of drinking:
1 supersized donair and serving of Street Meat:
5 pounds gained:
countless amounts of money spent (at least it seems that way):
*picture confiscated by Revenue Canada*
and last but not least...
1 long overdue reunion!:
Was it tough heading back this time around? Well, sort of...but it definitely is easier each time I travel south. Sure, it's awesome to see family and friends, and it's great to get away for a bit, buuuuuuut after going for 3 weeks with no routine whatsoever AND being separated from my daughter (a very hairy and gnaws on her paws for fun daughter, that is) I couldn't wait to be back!
Plus, as an added bonus, when I got back it was a wonderful -40C outside and that whole "dark outside all the time" thing still seems to be the norm.
...hello darkness, my old friend!
In other news, I was happy/surprised to find out last week that I placed second in the "Best Overall Blog" category in the 2nd annual NWT Blog Awards! I was still in NS at the time I received this honour though...so nobody around me really seemed to comprehend the magnitude of this information! Most of the congratulatory praise I received was along the lines of:
"What's a NWT?"
"Stop making up things. If you're gonna do that it should at least make sense"
"Why haven't you left yet?"
Congrats to Megan for her 1st place finish!
