Well. I’m back in California. I arrived sans laptop. I’m annoyed because I brought my laptop with me to the Yukon and the only time I took it out of it’s case was to get through security at the airports. I left my laptop at the security check in the Vancouver airport. Still–with or without my laptop–it’s nice to be home.
I am a bit confused about home however. When I am in California, I miss my parents and the Yukon. When I’m in the Yukon, I miss my friends and California. How do you know when you are home? I guess that’s a question I’ll be contemplating this year.
This year I have much to do. The first good thing is that I’m only one week late with my first posting–not two like last year. Perfect. I’m off to a good start (with the exception of the laptop incident). Alas, what can I say? Stuff happens. The other good news is that Vancouver Airport had my laptop at their lost and found and it should arrive in working order by Monday. No problem. I’m only a week late starting this year.
Another good thing is that I have spent a few days catching up on those tedious administrative tasks that pile up when you do go on vacation. I have a few more days to spend on that–but, they will be there tomorrow. Oh. And tomorrow, I will be visiting with my friend Quebec Martin who has come back to town after up and leaving last April. I will find out what he has learned in his time away and I’ll be keen to hear his revelations. We are also planning a hike out at the coast because we both ended up a few pant sizes larger over the holidays.
Last year, before Quebec Martin left California, I asked him what he hadn’t done in the ten years he’s lived here. He said he’d never walked across the Golden Gate Bridge. So–that’s exactly what we did. I think I should make a list of things I need to do in California and make sure I do them–before it’s time to leave.
On that note, I am going to think of some resolutions for this year. What am I going to accomplish? Good question. I guess I’ll have to let you know.
