I woke up this morning to discover a waiting email in my inbox informing me that the application I had sent in to the government of Canada and had been returned not once, not twice, but three times prior to my re-re-resending it out in late July as apparently lost, meaning I would have to re-re-re-refile the application on more time. So, I spent the greater part of the day filling out paperwork, getting the proper photos taken, and sending the application out yet again. What is it they say when it comes to dealing with our government’s finest? Fifth time’s the charm?
Also, to commemorate my special day, I am finishing up the final treatments for my frozen shoulder. I’m pleased to report it has thawed out considerably. But lest you think I’m going to miss the rehab center I’ve been visiting for the last couple of months – rejoice! I am apparently suffering from either shin splints or a stress fracture to my right leg.
Gifts from my gal! Chocolates, chamomile tea to help rest these weary bones, two re-usable straws (one glass – too large, and one metal – too small), and a couple of massage coupons (I already sold on craigslist!).
I wanted fried chicken for lunch so of course we had to settle for pizza. Then, we swung by Soma Chocolates and stocked up on the His (pistachio) and Hers (Hazelnut) spreads. And assorted other goodies.
Later, we visited Dogs & Coffee, a dog-friendly cafe in downtown Toronto where I got a mocha while Suji went crazy for (while Lulu roundly ignored) a cup of frothy steamed milk.
Between working on the second act of this pilot, I fielded birthday messages from friends, family, and former co-workers.
Tonight, we’re off for sushi! And later tonight, it’s more writing! And later later tonight, it youtube food videos and fantasy football waiver picks. Good times, good times!
