So here I am in Calgary after my fabulous weekend in Drumheller.

I haven't sat still for very long since I got here - except at my desk all week and then today watching many, many episodes of Six Feet Under. I felt very busy all week.

My brother told me he was jealous of me. So I asked why. I was pretty sure I knew, but I wanted to hear him say it. [grin] I decided to work in Calgary this week because I can. Heh. It's the little things that make life grand.

I worked too much this week. Last Sunday from 5 p.m. to 3 a.m. which just started the whole week off badly. In early and staying late some days too. And then today for a few hours again. The beautiful thing is that I don't resent it. I feel like it's worth it because people are counting on me and that means something.

The highlights of the week:
1. Meeting some of my staff that I hadn't met before.
2. Swimming with my niece and nephew.
3. Watching Six Feet Under.
4. Seeing my niece and nephew each morning before work and having them yell in unison from the front door, "Good-bye Auntie Suzi."
5. Seeing friends I haven't made time for in a long while.
6. Getting an expected note from someone who really believes in me.
7. Learning that Chinese food leftovers are edible - just get them to put the sauce on the side.
8. Talking to the people in Saskatoon that I miss terribly and it's only been a week - including hearing my cat purr it up at the sound of my voice.
9. Having people feel that they can tell me when I've done something wrong without fear of breaking me.
10. Hugs from my family and friends and feeling connected.

While I'm looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tomorrow night, I'm going to miss everyone here. I really need a teleporter.
