Between our annual family visit to Ontario, a fitness conference in Toronto, and my birthday, describing the past 9 days as ‘hectic but fun’ would be an understatement.

There’s a big fitness conference every August in Toronto and since Fraser and I have to be there already, we’ve begun this ritual of bringing the boys with us and pairing the travel with a few days of visiting Fraser’s family members who live around there. His mom, dad, brother, aunt, and best friend all live within a couple hours of each other so it’s a lot of driving and switching houses. We had a really fun day riding roller coasters with the kids at Canada’s Wonderland, had a zoo day and also a couple relaxing days on the lake (which is where a majority of my photos were taken).

I’m currently on my flight home, blogging from the middle seat in the back of the plane after waking up at 4:30am. I couldn’t get on the same flight as Fraser and the boys – they’ll be flying later in the afternoon – but it’s kind of nice to have some wifi and get some work done. I’ll also have a few hours at home to hang with Tango, get some laundry started, and hopefully take a nap before I have to go retrieve the guys from the airport. I think it’s going to be a nice Sunday…

In other news, here’s what I’ve been up to lately:

 

Making: Plans to be in the midwest! I’ve got TRX courses in Indiana and Ohio next weekend and I’m hangin’ in Kentucky for a few days afterwards. Woot!

Wanting: to get home to Tango! We’ve been gone 9 days and I’ve missed my dog.

Reading: This book that’s making me laugh unexpectedly. A fun self-discovery memoir that you might find as entertaining as I do. [Read more…]

So currently… well, a lot has been happening. It’s a complicated process this immigration application. We’ve sent it to our lawyer to submit almost two months ago, he sent it back noting a bunch of things we missed or needed to clarify. We sent it back in and are now waiting for the green light to be able to submit it. I can’t work in Canada until I get a temporary work permit (which usually takes about 3-4 months after you submit your application to get accepted) so I came back to Kentucky for a month to get some work in and make some money.

Fraser was already gone for a couple weeks when I left Canada and I’ll teach my last TRX course here on the 28th. It’s been well over a month since I’ve seen my husband and the boys in person and still have 2 weeks to go. I miss them terribly. I’m trying to have a good time while I’m in my hometown though. I’m working a little, spending time with friends and family, and soaking up the heat and sun.

So that’s what’s been goin’ on. Here’s what else:

Making: Plans with everybody! Trying to see as many people as I can while I’m home. I can’t fit everybody in, but I’m giving it my best shot.

Wanting: Fraser and the boys to be here with me. Fraser comes every Thanksgiving for the family visit, but it’s always cold and dreary… it’s way more fun in the summer. The boys have never been here before, so I’m dying to take them to the lake.

Reading: Sheryl Sandberg’s “Option B.” Although I’m moving at a snail’s pace. I’ve been getting home late every night and only reading a couple pages before I go to sleep! It’s really good though. [Read more…]

It’s a big night. We leave for Hawaii for a family vacation in the morning. We live an hour away from the airport so we drove in to the city tonight. Our flight is at 6am (woof) and we have to be there to check in and check bags at 4:15, so the 3:30am wake up tomorrow morning is gonna be a rough one. It’s totally worth it though. I’m stoked to go to Hawaii, as I’ve never been to the big island before and am looking forward to sun on my skin for the next week. We’ve used our hotel points to book the first two nights, then we’re camping all around the island for the next four days, then using hotel points again for our final night (goodness knows we’ll all need showers by that point). All that being said, here’s what else is going on currently: [Read more…]

I was in Southern California for the past week for work and had a few days in between projects to see some friends. I stayed with my good friends Ted and Ann and although I was hoping to spend copious amounts of time outside in the warm weather  it was cold and rainy most of the week. I’ll let it slide since California desperately needs some precipitation, but I will say it was nice going on a run yesterday morning in a tank top! It’s back to Canada tonight and I’m SO excited to get to my boys. Here’s what else is going on currently: [Read more…]

Tango and I have just about 10 more days in Kentucky before we head out. We’re soaking up all the wide open spaces and time with my friends and family while we can. While I’m always bummed to be leaving my people, I’m also excited for an extended trip to Canada to spend a couple months with my man-friend and the boys. Since I haven’t been writing a ton here lately, here’s what’s been going on…

Making: Sweet Tea… pretty much every day. I’m going to enjoy it for my last week here in KY and then I’ll have to put the kibosh on all that sugar.

Wanting: To blog more. I’m working on 5 posts at once and can’t get any of them out. Hopefully that’ll change in the coming weeks. I miss this outlet.

Reading: I’m slowly making my way through Kathryn Hepburn’s autobiography, “Stories of My Life.”  [Read more…]

Because sometimes you need a little series template to get you back in the groove of blogging…

Making: This butternut squash chowder. It’s perfect for this weather.

Wanting: for my body to be back on Eastern Standard Time. Sleep has not been a regular part of my schedule lately and I’m riding the struggle bus from 11am to 7pm most days… I’m averaging about 4 hours of sleep per night. About 6 less than my body tends to require. It’s super fun.

Watching: Scary movies in prep for Halloween. Saw Annabelle a couple weeks ago. Saw Ouija last night. #sleepingwiththelightson
