Am home alone this weekend--G went north to visit his Mom and is today heading to North Bay as he has to be in Sudbury for work Monday morning. (boo) It worked out well as I have been doing nothing but school work all weekend anyway. Last night I was up til 2 getting my presentation boards ready, and this morning I got up at 9 to get back to work. I may or may not have been a little bit distracted by Flickr, but that's beside the point. Am heading downtown shortly to go to Sambuca for brunch with my friend Cynthia and her almost 1 year old son Phoenix. Havent seen them in a while so I am looking forward to catching up. Have been sitting on the couch this morning surfing for images for my presentation, I got cold so I got up and put one of G's sweaters on over my jammies. It's strange the comfort I get solely from the smell of him. It's nice that he isn't here this weekend as I would be ignoring him due to school, but it felt nice this morning to catch a whiff of him as my mind is focused on something else.

Until I have my final project presentations for term 4. I have been in school for almost a year now, but due to the condensed program I am almost a third of the way done my second year now! Time flies much?! This has been a long week of sitting in AutoCAD labs trying to get my plans, elevations and sections into presentation quality. It does feel so good to see all my work from the past few months coming together, but at the same time I am really ready for this to be over and to have my week off. My mum and I decided to have an adventure and we are roadtripping to Quebec City and Montreal. I am super looking forward to both the break and the change of scenery.
In other news, looking back through old emails, I have realized that I have emailed my divorce attorney 3 times since early July and I haven't heard back. I assumed I would be divorced by now. It's not something I think too much about, but I do worry that my ex might try something last minute (as he enjoys drama) I would just really like this to be over, all ties to be severed and me to be able to officially move on. Am not in a rush to remarry, but I just want that chapter of my life legally finished with. There is a nice bottle of champagne waiting for me to buy it at the LCBO so I can celebrate the end of all of that. It's funny cause I don't really dwell on it a lot, however I think that once I can move on I will realize how much it has been bothering me. It's nice cause I really don't feel like I was ever married...and as time has gone on I have forgotten many of the intimate details of that relationship. It makes me happy to know that when and if I get married again I can start with a clean slate and work on maintaining a strong and healthy relationship with my partner. Never again will I go back to that debilitating sort of dependance that defined my life previously

I just saw on the news this morning that Patrick Swayze died. I know it is a bit ridiculous to get somewhat affected by the passing of a complete stranger. However, he was my first celebrity crush and I feel quite down. I remember renting Dirty Dancing at sleepover parties when we were preteens and (*don't judge me but...) we would keep rewinding to the part where his bare bum is seen when he gets out of bed (I know you know the part I mean). NO idea why, but we all loved that part and would dissolve into giggles each and every time we saw it. Last year I watched a Barbara Walters (or someone similar) do an in-depth interview with him and his wife...it's just sad. Am not saying that it is somehow more sad as he is a celebrity, cancer is a total S.O.B for everyone it touches, but am just sad.

How is today September 1st? It has felt like fall in Ontario for most of the summer, what a rip off. And now fall is almost here (can't really complain as I delight in the ways of autumn) but I can't believe it's September already. And I can't even have the back to school rush cause I have been in school all summer anyway.
In WAY more exciting news, not-so-wise gets married on Saturday. SATURDAY...it's sooo soon, but I am not remotely worried as she is the most organized wedding planner I have ever met. I can't wait for her special day, it's going to be such a blast. Her fiance has been struggling with a lot of health issues this past year and I am really looking forward to her having at least one special magical day that is all about her!
The other night we were having dinner with another couple who are about to get married. S just picked up his wedding ring and was showing it off. G tried it on and I must say my heart got all a flutter seeing him with a ring on his ring finger. It was a strange feeling, but I'll take butterflies whenever I get 'em :)
