Happy Belated Birthday to Me !!

On Wednesday I turned 33 - overall it was a pretty great birthday/birthday week.

We had friends over On October 1st to watch the Oilers and Flames play preseason hockey. The Oilers lost but I got to wear my new jersey (an awesome present from my husband), and han gout with a great group of people until about 2:00am.

That Saturday, after sleeping in, we managed to buy a few groceries and then we just stayed home. We played a new game (also a birthday present from RW), and watched a movie.

Sunday we met up with our Calgary neighbours/friends again for breakfast. Then we went shopping (under bed storage makes me happy).

Monday after work we went out for an early birthday dinner at Boston Pizza.

So by then time we got to my actual birthday, I had already celebrated it a few times.

I actually managed to pick up some hamburgers to cook for dinner, go downtown and help prepare for a breakfast work event the next day, have Shaw over to fix the phone/internet signal, have birthday cake, and get our passports signed by our guarantor.

Yesterday, while I had to get up at 5:00am (and then slept in until 5:45am b/c my alarm did not go off), I got a nice free breakfast, listened to an interesting panel talk about business in Calgary & Alberta, got a nice free lunch and was only really at work for a total of three hours.

Today my husband and I got our passports sent in, they should be ready for pick-up on Oct 14, and they already called our guarantor and everything looks good.

So, it has been a busy week, but a pretty great one.
