Yeah, it’s been a while. Sorry about that. I’ve ended up fairly busy with a bunch of things, including becoming part of the ASD Advisory Board of the recently formed Autism Canada, and also of the Canadian Autism Partnership Project. The latter of which was what let me come to Nova Scotia (see tagÂûght’s Blog: Leaving, On a Jet Plane; Two Wonderful Sisters; and Nova Scotia, How I Love Thee for the details and explanations).
The important part is that in coming here to Nova Scotia, I got to spend a great deal of time with my middle sister and her children, and meet her friends, and it’s been great. I’ve even tonight got to see my older cousin for the first time in ages.
Had a wonderful Cousin’s Belated Birthday Dinner at Scruffy Murphy’s – we got there early enough that there was no crowd in the dining area, and we had excellent food, a reasonable background noise level, and some interesting conversation. Definitely worth going out, even in this weather.
Holiday shopping… I’m stunned at myself. I now have only two or three more people to buy for (c’mon, Papa, what do you want?), and I’ll have everything for everybody!
Even sent out the second batch of Christmas cards… (Newfoundland group, you’ll be getting yours when Alain gets back). I’m simply amazing myself with my efficiency this year.
Going to bed soon – this weekend is going to be busy…
