"Il n'est pas nécéssaire de parler quand on a un regard qui en dit long."

Wow, it's been awhile since I've posted, I just keep forgetting I guess, not much to say...things are pretty good around here, a few changes since Easter. Dan is in his 2nd week of planting trees, so during the week he is now staying in the camps in Truro and he comes home on the week ends, so that's not too fun, being apart, but we're pretty used to it now (this is our 5th summer together, and we've been apart for 3 and a half of them.)

Also it's not so bad for me because my friend Heather moved into our spare room in mid-April, so I'm not alone, it's really nice having her around. We don't do all that much really, just regular stuff, but it's nice to have someone to talk to, plus we meet for lunch everyday during the week (she works in a law firm, downtown), we started a garden, and we watch LOST every week and go to the library and shopping and stuff, so that's good. We had alot of fun last summer (I lived with her here in her apartment), so it's going to be like that. At the end of the summer when we move out she's probably gonna take over this apartment too, so that's good, no worrying about any of that. now if only I could find a place to live in Springhill...

Other than that, not too much new. I'm going home for the long week end this week end, that will be fun, haven't been home since Easter so it'll be nice to see everyone. Work is good, same old, I'm sad that I have to go in August 'cause I'm pretty sure they would like to try and hire me on full time if I were to stay, but it's not the way it worked out, so I'll just have to not worry about it. I mention to them often that I would like to come back, so maybe if I'm lucky something will be waiting for me if we do....IF being the key word, since we don't know where we'll end up after Dan's course...we talk about coming back here to Hali since we both like it, or possibly moving closer to home in NB, or doing the exact opposite ansd moving out West for a few years (so cliched I know), so we'll have to wait and see, basically we will go where Dan can get good work, but I think that he will be able to get good work wherever he on the other hand, I don't know.

I get all these ideas in my head of what I would like to do, but I'm just not sure...I think about going back to school to get another diploma in something, but then I wonder if it'll end up being another waste of time like my first degree was...since working in Dept of Health I've become interested in that field, but I'm not sure what I could do to get more invilved in it....I'm still interested in my languages but it just doesn't seem to translate into a good job...frig, I was thinking how it would be cool to be a midwife, so you can see how far reaching my brain is going! Part of me also has it in the back of my mind that I should start thinking about kids and family, since I always said I didn't want to be too old (25 was my ideal age to have my first child, but that's next year!) So we'll have to see I suppose, I'm happy to know that at least Dan will have a steady job from now on (starting in a few years I guess, but at least he'll be done the school thing), and I hope that I will be able to find something steady as's hard not knowing though.

Well I suppose that's enough rambling, off to do another scrapbook page...I try and do about one a week or so...oh, one more thing, my running is going pretty well, only 6 weeks before the marathon, but I became alot more confident this week when I actually ran the 10km that I needed, it was the first time I had ever run that far! It was easy too, I was really surprised and happy with myself, I did 10.9km in 1:04mins, so right on track for a 6min/km. Now I just need to keep it up and try and improve a little, since I know that running in July will be much harder than running now in the cool weather.

Ok, that's all for now...oh yes, Dan has a new woman in his life....her name is Taylor, she's a few weeks old and cost quite a bit of money, but she's beautiful (Hint: She's a guitar) I, on the other hand, did not get to spend any of my tax money on a trip like I wanted, it all went to credit cards...darn I hate being the responsible one!

Is the Springhill you mention in Nova Scotia, Canada? I was only curious cause I met people from that town and wrote a short story about it:

Hmmm... It's always rough trying to figure out what to do, especially when there are two people to consider.

No worries gen, I've got faith in you and I'm sure there is somewhere y'all can find comfort.

As for me, I have to do the freebird thing for a while.
