The reason that I turn 34 years old in exactly one week doesn’t freak me out as much as I thought it would, is that I’ve been thinking I was already 34 since January, for some reason. So I’m thinking: Yes! I’m only 34!
I haven’t blogged in over a month! I’ve been busy enjoying summer, and also rehearsing for the three shows of Trial by Jury we just did this weekend. All three shows were sold out, and fun was had by all. You’re probably seen my goth costume pictures on Facebook. Other than that, work has been busy. I’ve also been organizing and participating in Yoga sessions at work. I can barely hold my third downward dog as long as I need to, but I’m already falling in love with yoga. I have an overwhelming feeling that I am supposed to do this for my body. This summer, instead of taking off a week or two of vacation, I decided to take every Monday off. I am LOVING this! I’m fully enjoying my weekends, and feel more focussed the four days that I am at work.
J and I have been busy going to the beach, going to see live music, his band’s gigs, two last minute trips which ended up being awesome: Rush in Halifax, and Kiss in Saint John. We had amazing seats for Kiss, you probably saw the pictures on Facebook. I still can’t believe it! All the confetti during the last song reminded me of being in Times Square on New Years Eve! A couple of days after the concert, I received an unexpected amount of money that covered the cost of the tickets. It was so meant to be! We also had a great mini-vacation when we went to see Rush in Halifax. We got in a harbour hopper tour and a nature watch boat tour. The weather was great, and vacations with my love are the best. We always have such a good time.
I suspect that my girlfriends have been busy too, because I haven’t heard much from them either and see activity pictures on Facebook, but I really haven’t been in touch much this summer. I’m looking forward to stocking up on wine and Skinny Girl cocktails and reconnecting in the fall. This Friday is Holly’s bachelorette party, I’m looking forward to that! Saturday J’s band has a gig in Saint John… see why I’m really enjoying having Mondays off? hehe.
The one area where I could use some positive vibes: My mom is coming to town the day before my birthday, Tuesday, for another chemo treatment and the scan/MRI results from last time. I hope it’s good news.
