The last real update I posted was early July. This past summer was a good one. I was out and about almost every weekend and it was tiring and fun. I went to 2 different cottages and caught my first fish.
I have no idea what kind of fish it was. It was small and returned to the lake. I think I might be more of a pretend fisher, really only doing it to be out on the water.
Hung out with my friends and we went all over. I had a lot of day trips all over Ontario. Went to an alpaca farm. Went to 3 different outlet malls. Finally made it to St. Jacob’s Market. Spent an afternoon at the beaches. Took a drive to Tobermory, which is beyond beautiful. Took my kids to do the Whirlpool Jet Boat ride. Went to visit a friend in Ottawa. Visited my Aunt in MD. Saw Michelle Obama.
People, I was tired and my wallet was crying. I was trying to good, then my friend’s sister died and she requested my presence at the memorial. I booked the the tickets to Chicago and my friend booked everything else. In the spirit of generosity, I refused to take payment for her ticket. She is a student and has always been there for me, so I figured it was the least I could do. My bank account is not pleased with me.
Since I was already off the budget train, I bought myself a smart watch. I absolutely love my Samsung Galaxy watch. I appreciate the gentle nudges to move more than I thought. I installed a water reminder app which helps greatly. I am trying to get back to healthy in 2020.
Next time, we will talk about my goals for 2020. Until then, I hope life is treating you well.
