Vancooooooooouuuuuuver

Dear Blog,

I love the internet. There, I said it. I can sit and be on the internet for hours and hours and hours looking at everything from facebook to craigs list to gofugyourself to all of my peeps blogs to on and on. The internet has especially been helpful in this endeavor across the country that has now taken me into another country. Alas, as soon as I got into Canada my trusty iBook ceased to work. Panic, panic, panic. I mean, pure panic ensued. I had to interrupt Aaron's dinner with friends because I was having a LARGE panic attack about my laptop...is that normal? How am I going to stay in touch with my peeps, how am I going to check facebook, how am I going to blog?!? Well, when you stop doing those things you become somewhat detached from them. Although, I managed to wrangle myself a loaner lululemon laptop. Say that 5x fast. Anywhoodle, I will have to get said iBook fixed but needless to say not having a laptop is not the end of the world.

As I'm sure you all cared so much about my laptop dilemmas, I will move onto other topics. I APOLOGIZE for being so completely out of touch. My schedule with this move has been absolutely crazy. I will break it down for you.
July 7-13th in Seattle training at University Village Store
July 14th-19th in Vancouver to beging my Groove Training (yes, that is what they call it)
July 19th-20th in Seattle to help Mom and Ron unload the Penske
July 20th-25th in Vancoov to continue the Groove
July 25th-August 3rd in Seattle training at U. Village store
August 3-August 15th in Vancoov for last of the Groove.

Now, with all of that going back and forth you can imagine why I have not been in better contact. Hopefully next week I will get my laptop fixed and will be able to holla at my peeps but until then I'm stuck. I can't use my phatty iPhone because I'm in Canada and that's all international and crap.

So, onto this Groove training. There are about 6 of us here and they have us in these swank apartments in downtown Vancouver...and we all have roomates. At first I was like, WTF?!? A roomate? But now, I love my little roomie. She's 25 from San Diego and a fun girl. We've bonded and it almost feels like college again. She drank my milk and I had to apologize for leaving little piles of stuff everywhere. It's been interesting to say the least.

In other news, Mom and Ron safely made it here!! I'm so proud of BOTH of them for driving across the country in a 22 foot Penske truck, with the Jeep on the back and a Bella in the middle. That's crazy!! There weren't any setbacks and I was waiting at the apartment when they pulled up. They were soooooooooo happy to be there and I was too. We spent all Saturday unloading the truck and getting stuff semi-organized in the apt and then had a fun day on Sunday. We took Mom downtown to the market and the waterfront and I think she promptly fell in love with it :) I'm trying to convince her and Dad to move to the Northwest to nanny my children when/if I decided to have them :)

All in all, I have to say I'm liking this change in the pace of life. I've become a lot more independent throughout this process and that is something that was definitely needed.

I've taken some great pics but posting them will have to wait until I get my computer fixed!!

xoxo,
al

I second what you said about needing the internet. Oh and that's hilarious...I remember you leaving piles of stuff everywhere...that's when the "box" came into play. Is your roomie now as cool as your Furman roomie?

prof said...

that's a great idea!

Wow, that is so weird! I just had my hand on the dial about to schedule an appointment for a colonic. Uncanny.
