It is a long weekend in Canada. For us, we are just laying low after a very busy week. Most of the people we know have already packed up and have headed north to camp or cottage or visit family. We prefer to go against the flow literally and traffic wise.

D works on the Monday as he doesn't have to take the holiday on the day it lands and as I don't work Mondays anyways, the long weekend doesn't have to apply to us.

On an exciting note, D feels back to normal. He wasn't able to get test results yesterday as the clinic was closed early for the long weekend. So we'll have to wait til Tuesday.

On another exciting D note, he has managed to secure himself a part time contract job with his old company likely to the tune of 20 hrs a month, just to get his feet wet. This is the type of work that has potential as a early retirement type job that can be done anywhere where there is Internet. I am really excited for him.

He has been searching for options for a while as he did not have as much stuff to sell as I did and felt he needed to come up with something else. Unlike selling stuff where there is a clear end, his opportunity can last a very long time.


  1. Congrats on the part time work opportunity, I need something like that to make our early retirement a reality. Enjoy the day off!

  2. Thanks Miss M! He is really excited about it and will be filling out the employment paperwork this week.
