Los Angeles

You know life ain't half bad when...

it's this nice out today

---------

I went to LA last weekend to visit my cousins (this being the rescheduled trip from Christmas). The timing was actually perfect - one of my cousins just had his first kid a few weeks prior, and another is going to be moving to Oregon in a couple months (which is actually great, cause it's closer to me!)  I had such a nice visit with them, and just felt really happy and relaxed there.  Better than I'd felt in a long time.

Friday, December 19th - lovely dusting of snow, viewed through the window of AB headquarters.  Finished off and had a great evening with friends, then spent Saturday and Sunday running around prepping to leave for LA, where I was heading to spend Christmas with my cousins.

Well, as you can see, I haven't been blogging much lately...so, here goes a fairly random update. First, in news, for anyone who didn't catch this, Jules is engaged! Congrats Jules!!! Her and Aaron are going to be getting married next September in Manitoba.

In October, I took my first week off since I started working in March, and went down to Santa Monica. Spent the week bonding with my cousins who I hadn't seen in waaaay too long.

I almost didn't make it south of the border yesterday... it was like a scene from a movie when someone has a plane to catch and everything goes wrong. There was actual running from the wrong wing of the airport where I'd stood in line for 20 mins. to find out I was late enough that my bags might not make it, to the right wing of the airport where the bitchy Air Canada lady put a tag with an L on my bags (L is for late), and told me that if I hadn't checked in online the night before they would have given up my seat. At this point, I was checking through 55mins prior to my flight. Seriously, I know I was late, but I'm sure there are way later people! Anyhow, I made it to LA, bags and all!
