Here, there, and everywhere

Posted on 07 February 2011

I’m feeling a little out of breath these days. There is a lot to do in little time and yet Rob and I, as we run around seeing accountants and bankers, visiting our storage locker, selling Rob’s sound equipment, shopping for Mackenzie’s wedding dress, doing display work in my old place of work, visiting with relatives-to-be, are having some fun and are pleased with our progress.

There are a number of people I’d like to see but I’m realizing, with less than a week before we leave, there just isn’t enough time. We did get to celebrate a brother-in-law’s 55th birthday, visit with my longest-known friend Penelope and her husband and daughter, catch-up with Marlene and Steve over a great meal, and start a friendship with Gill’s new parents-in-law-to-be.

I still have some mountains to climb and I’m feeling guilty that I have done no writing (what else is new?) and have yet to revisit my notes on the biography I’m editing before I meet with the author. And this coming Sunday and Monday, I’ll be busy celebrating my friend Helen’s 60th birthday – the reason I came at this time. One day at a time, I tell myself. Accomplish what you can.

So how am I feeling being here, there, and everywhere in Vancouver? Overwhelmed. A little sad that I won’t be able to see all the people I’d like to see. And yet, I am happy to be here with Rob. It’s as if we’re saying goodbye to our old place of residence. We both feel like visitors and yet it’s so good to see a handful of friends and Michael and Mackenzie. (Although Kenzie is afraid of flying, she says that they just might make it over to France for Christmas.) And tired. Tonight I am going to stay in and read a good mystery novel.
