So my trip was pretty nice.
After 4 hours of sitting in my car I couldn't wait to arrive on Friday - I was hungry too. I got my afternoon off here, and after eating out with a colleague, I went home, and was able to leave at 1:30; but I was stuck in traffic for half an hour in Quebec City -_- stupid highways.
The drive there was nice, and since the only time I went was in the evening and I didn't see nothing - I was pretty excited to see the St Lawrence River again. I usually only see it when I go to my hometown, but Matane is closer to it, and it was just so beautiful.
So I arrived at my friend's house at 6 PM. We ate somewhere - we were supposed to go to the local microbrewery (which I love), but it was way too full, so we ate next door. I had a vegetarian panini (wow, vegetarian food in such a small town) with a salad and it was pretty good. Then we met with her friends and made a fire on the beach. It started raining after maybe an hour or two, so we went to someone's house and continued playing Werewolves (a pretty awesome card game). I had two beers and chips.
Saturday I got up pretty late, and we didn't do much; I couldn't go jogging since I got up after my friend, and I didn't have my stuff anyway (totally forgot to pack it). But we did walk for almost three hours outside. I had a SMALL poutine for (very late) lunch, and we ate supper still late - around 8:30 PM. Overall I wasn't too bad with food, and was able to resist candy, chips, and beer, which is pretty damn good.
So other than walking, Saturday we didn't do much since it was very windy and cold outside. Didn't go to bed too late and I slept a lot again; Sunday for breakfast we had toast and fruits, and I left around noon. After fulling my car and buying water and snacks for the trip (okay, snacks weren't intelligent buys, but it was a gas station and had nothing better: I bought a cream cheese pastry and a Caramilk bar) I left at 12:45.
The trip back took 4 hours exactly and went pretty well except I drove fast to come back, haha. But I was a little cranky and had a headache and was missing my boyfriend... I know there's not a reason good enough to drive fast but people were going faster than me so whatever.
I got home a little before 5, and had time to start my laundry and unpack my stuff before my roommate and her boyfriend arrived. Being cranky, for some reason that made me angry. Lol I felt like being alone XD so I popped in my iPod and listened to music while preparing my grocery list; my boyfriend arrived, and he picked up thai food for supper (I really didn't wanna cook). After a shower and eating, we went grocery shopping for the week.
Also yesterday I FINALLY finished this huge pack of two-bite brownies I bought at Costco one or two weeks ago. ABOUT TIME! XD when I have dessert just sitting there I can'T help but eat it - at least I was able to stop myself at two pieces every day, but having dessert every day is not something I wanna do, so thank God it's over now ;P
So overall the trip was nice, I didn't eat too bad, I walked a lot, and I had fun. So, yay!
