When I asked my Canadian colleagues what I was special in Montreal, the most consistent answer I got was the food. Unfortunately I have been on a very strict dietary program since mid-January (and lost 45 pound BTW) and during this phase of the program it is VERY difficult to eat out. Rather than blow it all, I decided to prepare for success. I cooked, portioned, sealed, and froze all the food I would be eating for the week and took it with me. It was difficult, but in the end SO worth it. I didn't have to make choices about food while I was gone, and I had lots of evening time to myself that I would normally have spent finding food.. I might just adopt this always. I did have another trip scheduled to Toronto, and sadly the most interesting thing was that my last night in Toronto I found a game store that had a game night (meetup) once a week. I was looking forward to going to that on the next trip, but that trip was cancelled. Sad to miss out on the game night but glad to be home for the last 2 weeks before we moved into the RV.

As mentioned we did have a final Garage Sale, and sold everything down to our last box full of stuff. Felt pretty accomplished about that! We also had an Open House on Memorial Day with the attempt to see a few Albuquerque friends that we have been missing that last many years. The Party was very fun, although many seemed to have conflicts for their time and we didn't have the attendance we hoped. SO, I guess we are ALL busy these days!

While I was in Chicago, Mike moved the RV and spent a week at Fish Lake in Southern Utah. Then I came home to spend another weekend in Albuquerque before heading off for 2 weeks working in Las Vegas.
