well, i don't actually have time to post 'cause i was on vacation for 3 days and no one did anything while i was gone so i have lots to do. here's a pointform version of events though.

* happy birthday pm <:) dim sum was great!
* storm - couldn't leave the office until 4.15 because of hail the size of quarters and insane amounts of rain. took 2.5 hours to drive to pi's office. there were cars floating across intersections, large sections of road washed out completely, people stuck everywhere etc. had to cover the computers etc in the office w/ plastic bags before we left b/c the rain started coming through the roof. sections of the parking lot washed out.
* got home after dim sum to find the apartment flooded. cleaned up a bit and went to do laundry and sleep at my parent's place.

* got up early and went to get boxes b/c the landlord said the entire floor would be redone.
* pi's parents as well as mine came to help us move as everything had to be off the floor for the tilers to redo everything while we were gone. we were supposed to get our passports renewed and leave for O that morning.
* my parents left to pick up bear at the airport. she was returning from germany.
* we eventually left for ottawa
* stopped at the big apple as pi had never been. took some pictures and bought some pie.
* arrived in ottawa at about 10. not bad considering. very tired

* spent most of the day in the mall shopping w/ my 'cousin' and her mother. had a nice time.
* went out for thai food for dinner. YUMMY but $$

* had a good, long, relaxing swim followed by the sauna. i remembered too late that i can't breath well in saunas.
* spent more time w/ 'family'

* got up early to drive to montreal
thanks for having us s, j, and m! we had a good and relaxing time. it was great to see you again
* arrived in montreal and, since my parents weren't there yet went to the biodome and insectarium
* moved bear into residence
* went out for dinner

* walked around and shopped until bear was finished her exam, bought a present for i and t's wedding shower which is on sunday
* went to the parent's lunch w/ bear and parents and left for home as we have an apartment to put back together
* got back home but the grout isn't dry yet so we can't put anything away.
* slept at my parent's again. will put things back tonight...enough to sleep and make a path to the bathroom anyway. the fridge would be nice too.

* back to work. no one has done much of my filing etc so it's a bit of a mess
* cousin j asked me to be a bride's maid!!! so i have to send my measurements to australia for the dress.
* was going to go to buskerfest as i've been busy every time it was on for the past 3-5 years...but as per usual i have to put the apt back together, find my school books as they were put in random boxes in the rush and are who knows where and fix my computer.

later this week
* going to l tomorrow night 'cause r is moving to the northwest territories soon. party!!!
* buying the rest of my school books
* going to pi's parent's to help w/ wedding prep
* bridal shower on sunday. i'm going to pi's mom.
* hopefully get our hair cut and do passports before the wedding next fri!
