TGIF: June 6, 2014
I have to admit, I’m a little lost for words right now – not because of anything that’s happening in my life, but because the only thing most Canadians are going to be talking about this morning is the fact that the Moncton shooter was apprehended last night. After nearly 30 hours, that horrific event is finally over and the people in the City of Moncton are safe again; only, I imagine it will be difficult to shake off the stress and go back to “life as usual”.
Events like this force us to reflect on what’s most important in life. As Jordann stated last night, money isn’t always at the top of that list. <3
The low of my week was suffering from my very first migraine. For chronic sufferers, holy jeez, you have my empathy. For close to four hours, I could barely open my eyes without squinting and wiping back tears. Never again, please.
There were so many highs this week. On Sunday, I hiked to Whyte Lake for the first time, and got to catch up with Krystal and Jaime along the way. After, a girlfriend and I finally used a gift certificate for a side-by-side pedicure that I gave her as part of her bridal shower gift…last year. And I went for the most amazing dinner at Burgoo, to celebrate a friend’s move from Toronto to Vancouver. Seriously, who knew tomato soup and a grilled cheese sandwich could be so good? I can still taste it.
A blog post I loved was The Confidence Gap. I bookmarked this a month or so ago, but finally took the time to read it this week. “Do men doubt themselves sometimes? Of course. But they don’t let their doubts stop them as often as women do.” If you read the article in full, I’d be curious to hear some of your thoughts.
The best money I spent was $33.60 on a new wallet. I have a running list of things I “want” which, if you compare it to what I already own, could just as likely be a list of things I actually need. Why? Because I don’t usually replace things until it’s absolutely necessary – like my wallet. It’s nice to have one that zips up again.
My plans this weekend include marathoning the new season of Orange is the New Black tonight, potentially going for another hike with Krystal tomorrow, flying to Toronto on Sunday morning and having dinner with Jess that night.
How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
