The week-end of doing and cleaning….

Friday evening Keith brought over the fixings to make home-made sushi and that pretty much took up the evening.

Saturday I got up bright and early, picked Keith up, and headed to Halifax. We spent the afternoon sorting through 53 boxes of stuff that I had stored in my parent’s basement. 10 garbage bags of clothes were collected and donated to the Red Cross, 6 garbage bags of garbage were collected, and the remainder of the items were priced and tagged for garage sale. It made for a very full day (and evening).

Sunday I got up early and went for a walk with my mom, then did a couple of loads of laundry that I’d brought, grabbed a late breakfast and then it was a family affair to clean and detail my car. Once we finished, I got cleaned up and Keith and I packed up the car, popped into downtown Halifax to do a little shopping and then eventually hit the road to come back to good ol’ foggy Saint John. We stopped a couple of times along the way (Bayers Lake for Starbucks and a wander through chapters, and then Mastadon Ridge for gas, a stop into Farmer Clem’s, and “dinner” at Taco Bell) and got back to SJ at about 10:30 at night. I was exhausted.

I was also pretty glad I’d taken Monday off as a vacation day. I slept in, hung out with the cats, and then headed out to run errands. Of course, to begin, I caught up with Jay & Lisa M out at the Vortex for a bit before getting groceries and cat food. My treat for myself was a used copy of Grand Theft Auto IV, which I subsequently spent the remainder of the evening playing.
