I was in Saint John, NB for three days this week for work. Everything went really well, the weather was gorgeous, our hosts graciously took us on a dinner cruise the first night. The hotel was in a great location, I loved walking on the pier during breaks and after meetings. Julien and I are making up for lost time and laughing, kissing, and making love three times as much as usual 🙂 Tonight on our way home after a dinner date at St. Louis Bar & Grill, we saw a double rainbow on the way home, then beautiful pink and purple skies when were in Tim Hortons drive through for coffee.
Life is really beautiful.
I worry about my mother a lot though. When I was in Saint John, she called me one night and asked if I could transfer $200 in her account. When I asked why, she said that she hadn’t had time to go to the bank and transfer money because they were keeping her overnight at the hospital because she had a fever above 100F. They keep chemo patients there when their fevers are above 100. Would she have told me if she hadn’t needed money? I worry that she doesn’t tell me everything. She has also had other symptoms which I hope are just chemo side effects. We were supposed to go up to Bathurst this weekend and walk the Relay for Life with her, me, Julien, my brother and his girlfriend, my mom and my dad. But she wisely decided to just do the survivor walk because she should be resting, not walking outside at 2am.
I three beautiful days off work with the love of my life in front of me. We’re planning to go to the beach, to go for a walk in the forest, go see live bands tomorrow night, and probably go see World War Z at some point.
