This dessert was one of my favourite parts of my visit to the CNE…almost a month ago!!! Where did September go? Its been a crazy month, I’ve been sick for the last of it. And, not just with a cold. I had another bout with food poisoning, or maybe it was the stomach flu, on Friday. It was not pretty and I will not go into descriptive detail, to spare you all, but it was rough.
The terrible thing about being so ill on Friday is that my friend had planned a belated surprise for my birthday that night. I had an idea of what it was, a spa treatment, but wasn’t sure exactly what. Anyways, I left work pretty much a hour after I went in (half of that hour was spent in the bathroom), there was no way I could have made it through the day, and slept when I got home. I wasn’t sure I would be able to make it to my friend’s surprise and I felt so bad because I knew she would be dinged for the appointment. Thankfully, I felt better by the late afternoon and decided to go. I was feeling pretty frail, I had not eaten all day, and didn’t realize how frail I looked until my friend pointed out how pale I was when she saw me. She had never seen me like that before and I had never seen myself like that either. But, I guess when you’ve emptied your stomach numerous times, it shows. After a lovely facial though, I got my colour back.
Anyways, September was not as productive as I wanted it to be. I’m not behind, but I’m not as ahead as I’d like to be in the goals I’ve set. I have to repair this leak in my master bathroom. Its been leaking for a while (I hate to confess how long cause then you’ll all know how lazy I am) from the suite above me (thankfully into my bathtub), but I just haven’t put in a maintenance request to get it fixed. If I want to sell my place, I need to get it fixed. Moving is a pain in the ass, but now that I’m finally that much closer to what I really want to do, it’s worth all the inconvenience.
If l learned from anything that’s happened this year, doing and thinking are two very different things and I’d rather be inconvenienced and doing something than just thinking about it.
