Let's start off with two photos.
This is my "cousin" Jodie and his baby, Sabrina.
This is a snowpig.
Those are pretty much the only pix I took worth sharing. I wish I had more, but I didn't have batteries for the camera until after Manitoba.
Now I shall try to recount my trip.
Leah and I left Niagara Falls on November 18, 2006 @ 10am. Her car was packed as full as it could be. Her cat decided to steal my legroom for the majority of the trip, but other than that, it was okay. In Thunder Bay, I watched a documentary on the history of video games. I enjoyed it muchly and took notes (as I am apt to do). On November 22 we arrived in Redwater, where Lorna (my mom's bestfriend with whom we stayed) met us. Lorna lives an hour outside of Edmonton, Alberta. That Saturday, we did a test drive to the LRT (Light-rail train), so that Leah would know how to get there on Monday for work. I watched a ton of movies while I was there. Lorna has 4 cats, so I got to visit the kitties a bit. On my birthday, Lorna got us stuck in a snowbank. (I took pix, but they are too dark to post.) I thought the car was going to roll! On December 2, I met my "cousin" Jodie and his fiancee, Kristina. They gave me a birthday card. On Monday night, I got on a train heading back to Ontario. The train ride was alright, except that I'd forgotton what spending 3 days alone with myself inside my head does to me, so I felt a little crazy last night. I'm also confused about the bf thing. I hardly missed him at all while I was away, and felt completely smothered before I left. So far, I've only emailed him since I've been back. I am to call my mom this evening. I've spent the majority of today catching up on correspondance and bills, etc. As mentioned earlier, my bestfriend just cancelled on me for Christmas. :( Anyway, I still have a thousand things to get done yet. If I think of anything, I'll be sure to post again.
I am so glad to e back online. I've missed all of you! I'm hoping to get a chance to catch up tonight, and if not by then, than definately by tomorrow.
