Time goes by too quickly. I never have enough time in a day to finish what I plan to do. Sometimes I wonder if it’s good to have so many things on the go at one time. Can’t imagine what it’ll be like to be a father.
Nathan and Shauna got married on August 1st. It was a beautiful day to get married. I had a blast by passing out around 10 o’clock in my tent after having three beef burgers, drinking lots of alcoholic beverages, and dancing to numerous songs.
August 8, 2009 marked Anya and I first year wedding anniversary. I can’t believe it has already been a year since we were married. 08.08.08 felt like it was yesterday. A lot did happen in this year though. We got Holly. We went to Cuba. We bought our first bed.
We had a really relaxing AnniWillary weekend together. We made homemade pasta and had yummy dinners, went to Tugwell Creek Meadery for some honey wine tasting, took Holly on lots of walks and hikes, and watched The Ugly Truth. I enjoyed being married. The feeling of having a family is indescribable. We should feel fortunate to have families.
Saw some of my old co-workers from PRA tonight. My buddy Rob Niewczas is leaving to Edmonton. His wife, Meredith Niewczas (?), got accepted for a Masters of Population Health program at the University of Alberta. Rob’s got a sweet job setup so that he can work from home in Ed-town while Meredith does her masters. I wish I could work from home…sometimes.
I now have a mentor! The Belmont Babblers Toastmasters Club assigned me its President, Greg MacDonald, as my mentor today during our Toastmasters session. I’m excited to work with Greg on the new challenges of my career. I think I’m doing my first speech on the 26th of August. Stay tuned 🙂
I’m going over to Vancouver this weekend to spend some quality friend times. I’ll be hanging with my buddy Gabe Wong. I missed his bachelor party, so we’ll be doing bachelor party related activities like blowing bubbles off his balcony and renting The Wedding Singer to watch… Michelle Neal’s having a birthday splash on Saturday, and we might be going to a laser concert?
If I could have a power, I wish I could slow the time down…
