What the what? Where the heck did this week go? I was at a clinic on Tuesday afternoon, when I overheard one of the other patients mention it was the 15th of October and somehow it suddenly felt like the 31st. I won’t complain, because I’m enjoying all of the work I’m doing right now, but my schedule is pretty much maxed out to the point that I don’t even know what day it is anymore. I did relax over the long weekend, though. Aside from doing a little writing, I spent most of my time just organizing my new place and getting settled into Port Moody. I turned off my usual 6:00 a.m. alarm and tried to sleep in… and, as usual, I failed at that! But the sunrises I woke up to everyday were incredible. Then on Monday, I finally got out of the house and went for a walk around Sasamat Lake – a picture of which you’re seeing here – with a friend and her dog. It was exactly what I needed…
…and now I’m taking another long weekend! I had a few days of vacation left, so I took yesterday and today off to spend some time with friends. I won’t be relaxing much, but I only get to see some of these friends once/year, so it should be a fun weekend.
The low of my week was… nothing. No complaints here.
The high of my week was winning the Plutus Award for Best Canadian Personal Finance Blog! I think the best part of winning is that the top of the award says it was “by virtue of nomination and votes by peers”. You guys are awesome. : ) Thank you to everyone who voted!
A blog post I loved was Date a Girl Who Writes. The line I loved most was, “She believes in passion and when she discovers it within you, she will forever believe in you.” I’ve read many similar posts, including Date an Entrepreneur – Female Edition by Heather Payne, which so reminded me of my boss.
The best money I spent was $40 for a mani/pedi last weekend. Because… well, just because!
My plans this weekend include hanging out with a whole whack of personal finance bloggers!
How was your week? What are you up to this weekend?
