first post of the year.

Jan 5, 2013

I can officially say it... Happy 2013! Holy smokes, that is crazy to type. Hey all of my fellow class of 2004 grads...  it's been almost 9 years since we finished high school. 9 years?! Just doing my part to make you feel a bit older. Although I've done a lot over those years, it still seems hard to fathom.  It's all okay though, because I married an older man... it's been 10 years since he finished high school and I'll forever be thankful for that extra year that he's got on me.  
2013 has been just peachy, so far. We've been busy with family and life and work, and counting down the days to our next vacation.... 82, in case you were wondering.  This month is a month filled with reserve... the bane of my existence.  I absolutely hate not having a set schedule and sitting around the house with the anticipation of a potential phone call to work.  Expect me to either have nothing to blog about, or be so bored that I bore you with useless posts such as this one. Though I often miss my life of international travel, I'm really not sure that I'd have the energy for it these days.  The past year has shown me just how truly wonderful sleep is!
Following our January tradition, we are making an effort to eat healthier.... we threw away all of our junk food and I haven't had a cup of coffee in 6 whole days. This is insanity. I'm so tired. 
I've only worked one pairing so far this month, and it was an easy one! When I initially saw it on my schedule, I was horrified, but I later learnt that the 11 pm departure to Ottawa was a ferry flight... no passengers!  I settled in for the ride, arriving to the capital city at 5 am.  After a day of sleep, and hanging out with a friend,  we hopped back on the plane and headed back to Alberta. Sure, we arrived 2 hours late due to an unanticipated stop for fuel, but we were home and overall it had been an easy pairing!  
Reserve begins tomorrow... who knows where I might end up! 
Wish me luck. I'm not really feeling up for frozen arctic adventures.  Is it summer yet?
