|January in Toronto|
What does January mean for you? I decided January was the northern August when we lived in Toronto... a long month with crappy weather! Now that we are in Houston it is just January. For most people January is the month of resolutions, paying Christmas bills, and the inevitable post Christmas let-down. January is the month we moved one of our three times to Houston and the month we moved to Toronto. So I sometimes associate the month with transitions, lonliness, unpacking and trying to get into the swing of things. Even though we did not move this year the month still has a few transitions and I am trying to get into the swing of things. I'll fill you in on the swing of things next week!
Last weekend we had a rainy, dreary Sunday and found ourselves with nothing to do for the first time in about 2 months, so we sat down together with our blank calendars and mapped out the year. Where are we going and when? The early bird gets the worm or in this case the low air fares, if there is such a thing anymore, so it is time to start planning. These "meetings" do not always go smoothly. TJ is more impulsive and ready to click that "purchase" button quickly and I need to mull it over, weigh my options, research, think about it, do a little more research and think a little more before I can commit. This can be frustrating for both parties. We did somehow come to a few agreements and are now busy until after Labor Day, when we will be wishing for a slow day in January again. All because of one rainy day!
