Not only do I get to be in one of the most beautiful places in the world - but I get to enjoy it with the best people and friends I have ever known.
Today my family lost one of our most beloved extended family members and it was really hard. It was hard for me to be away from my aunt who is dealing with all of it and grieving so much - and it was hard for me not to be there with her. But my friends here were so great and so cool and so comforting. You really know who your friends are in times of difficulty.
And oddly enough tonight turned out to be a really fun night, despite what I was dealing with personally. A really great friend celebrated his birthday tonight and we were all there to enjoy it with him. We all missed Phil though and that was a common comment throughout the night! You'll be here in two weeks though dear and everyone can't wait for you to come! In the meantime, Happy Birthday Gord! Let's see if you make it to breakfast tomorrow!! We took a pic tonight and if I can figure out how to post it I will!
So off to bed. Meeting a great friend from Trip Advisor for breakfast tomorrow. We might not be alone cuz it seems that I thought it was a great idea to invite the entire bar tonight! Just kidding! Then want to take Cathy to the Art Walk tomorrow night. I also met the guy that runs Karaoke at The Saloon on Saturday night so that will likely be how we spend Cathy's last night. Then I'm on my own for 12 days until Philly gets here. My friends here will take care of me no doubt but we are all looking forward to his arrival! He is the funnier one of the two of us after all!!!
