I can mark this weekend as another successful and well enjoyed weekend. Two in a row and it’s pretty amazing! I think from now on all my weekends need to be like these, they’re just pretty amazing.
Friday was the first day of school and by the time I got home, man was I wiped. I truly forgot what it was like to be a student, including all the walking that I would have to do. In years past I tried to get all my classes in one building close to the bus stops, but this time I couldn’t do it. After I got home I ran a few errands and then came back to make dinner. It was my mom’s birthday and she wanted breakfast for dinner so I made Belgian waffles with cherry pie filling and whip cream, eggs, hashbrowns and ham. We spent the rest of the evening relaxing, I sure did need it after all that walking!
Saturday This had to be the best day of the weekend because for the first time in twenty years, I got to see kids of all ages playing street hockey on our block. We all gathered outside for a beautiful afternoon, and watching those little kids play tugged at my heartstrings. It brought back so many wonderful memories!
Later that evening we gathered at one of my favorite restaurants – The Keg – for my mom’s birthday dinner. My mom’s best friend and her husband joined us along with my dad’s cousin and aunt. The food was pretty darn amazing, but I think the company was even better.
Sunday The first annual Manitoba Pet Expo was on my list. My sister and I attended and found some ridiculously cute items, practical items (a food dish stand), and finally someone who makes dog treats without chicken in it! Our dog has a chicken allergy and it is very hard for us to find treats that do not contain chicken; that lady now has a new customer!
After the pet expo, I was on a mission… a mission to find a zip-up hoodie. I need just a simple one to wear while on campus and one in class, one that won’t make me boil to death, but keep me toasty when it’s freezing. Wal-Mart… nope. Zellers, yes but I paid $39 for it because all that was left was from Alfred Sung.
It was a terrific weekend and now it’s time for school Monday. I still don’t have money for textbooks, student loans are still taking forever, but at least I’ll be able to buy them on Friday when it’s payday.
