Update on my life in Victoria

Sunday, May 09, 2010

Sorry I haven't been around much for the past couple of weeks so here is a run down.

March 24-29th went to New York to inform my family that I would be moving to Canada in a month.

March 29th-April 1st - had a student fly in from Virginia for a four day intensive one-on-one training session so I can assist her to study for her board exams AND study for my upcoming final exams.

April 1st-April13th - write, study and take final exams, as well as, quit my job, pack my belongings and assist my daughter in finding an apartment.

April 14-29th - get into panic mode as the reality that I'm going to be leaving soon and not live with my daughter for the first time in her life.

April 29th - took off for canada by driving. spent the night in Stockton at fellow sparkers home 1basil.

April 30th - spent the night in Portland Oregon

May 1st - Spent the night in Port angeles, washington - wayyy cool i was only 71 miles from Forks, washington where the Twilight movies are filmed,

May 2nd - arrived in Victoria, British Columbia via Ferry. It was so cold and rainy I missed california already.

May 3-8th - tried unsuccessfully to get a my cellphone service transferred, missed my daughter so much my heart felt like it was going to break, tried to get used to cold weather here.

May 9th - it's 60 degrees today and sunny. although this is the first mother's day i spent without my daughter, my best friend did a good job of keeping me entertained.

During the last week I have gotten back into running again and working on my goals. It has been quite hectic but I'm hoping that soon it will all settle down.

So there goes - that is what I have been up to? What about the rest of you?

    oh Kate, I'm sorry to hear you have been dragging.

    Holstice - thanks for the tips, I will start to look at them. We have been exploring the waterfront. I have been going on runs as much as possible.

    Victoria is awesome!

    Rebar is an AMAZING restaurant with lots of healthy choices on the menu. It's definitely my favorite restaurant in town (buy their cookbook too!). Lotus Pond is also really cool- it's a Buddhist Chinese restaurant where you can get super-cheap combo meals. The local recreation centres have great gyms- check out Saanich Commonwealth Place. For walks, you can't beat the waterfront, but I also love walking in Todd Inlet (in Saanich).
