Survival

Okay - so I have survived both the birthday party and the New Brunswick flooding - oh, Friday was a "flood day", too! Thanks to everyone for their supportive comments on both. At this point in my life it is highly unlikely that I will ever host another 8th birthday party and any water issues this week are not my concern.
"Why?" you ask - well, I'm spending a week away from home doing some mandatory work training. I'm spending the week in Toronto...! Almost immediately upon landing I noticed some pretty significant differences between Fredericton and Toronto: escalators (there are NONE in Fredericton), revolving doors (also completely absent with the exception of the automated ones at the hospital but those don't really count) and tall buildings. I am on the 20th floor of my hotel and it is NOT the top floor. I'm guessing that the tallest building in Fredericton is probably about 8 stories... Freakish! And I have a balcony. I'll take pictures.

I sure hope you'll be visiting some LYS. Can't wait to hear more about this trip. And I hope your work training leaves you with loads of free time.

Once I was in Toronto and went searching for a LQS (Local Quilt Shop) and found myself walking MILES...but I found the place and the shop was lovely.

I'd love to go back and find LYS, yeah!!

I thought 4 12 year olds were bad (the step-daughter turned 12 this weekend), but I'd take them over 8 year old boys any day. The house might reek of strawberry hair spray but at least it's still standing. :-)

I love Toronto! I love the zoo and the science museum. I love the Eaton Center and Mr. Green Jeans restaurant.

(sigh) I miss living close to the border...
