I found myself at 10 PM on Thursday evening the 18th of April, putting my carefully crafted packing plan into action – in other words, blitz! Yikes, realized that I needed a few things, but fortunately Safeway is only 2 blocks away and I zipped over there before it closed, got everything I needed… or so I thought. I got the laundry going, and it ran until something like 12:30 in the night… and did the actual packing… wasn’t done until after 2 AM.
Oh yes, somewhere in there I had to prepare my tax “story” for my accountant, along with all my supporting documentation – and it was important this year, having relocated back from Markham last June. Another long story for another time 🙂
Then, up at 6 AM, more preparations, tear down the computer stuff and pack it away, Oops, in spite of my list, two more things to get! I raced off to Safeway to get them, thought I could make it back just before my mother came to pick me up at 9:30. On the way back, just as I reached my apartment block, I badly sprained my ankle – ouch! Oh well, pushed through, packed, and my mother came on by.
I needed to deliver my documents to the accountant, pick up a money belt, and finally got to the airport, whew! Another adventure begins. Or rather, continues – it was an adventure from when I decided to go on this trip. I finally got to catch my breath in the departure lounge – erk. And work out the kinks in my ankle. Norbert appeared, looking cool as a cucumber. I need to cultivate that ability. We hopped an Air Canada plane, and off to Toronto we went.
