impromptu sleepover

27 Aug

I am questioning my ability to live by myself.  Last night, I went for a run and took my apartment keys off my main key ring to take them with me.  This morning I left with my key ring, but not my keys.  I realized just after I shut the door and thought I wanted to go back in to check to make sure I turned the stove off, as I compulsively do.  I hope I don’t burn the building down.

So now I’m sleeping at Doria’s until my landlord can let me in tomorrow.  I am grateful for new friends who are willing to put a roof over my head.  Wish I had my PJs, that would make this sleepover perfect, all curled up with histology and metabolism notes.

And tomorrow, keys for everyone!  I am making like ten copies.  The ironic part is that I was just about to exchange keys with Gwyneth in the apartment upstairs, whose cats I’m sitting for over the weekend, but she was running off when she dropped off her keys with me last night and was afraid that they might get lost.

Honeymoon, acts two-four coming soon.  Happy Friday!

honeymoon, in four acts: act i

27 Aug

Very rarely I fall asleep in the center of the bed; I never wake up that way.  I guess it’s pretty predictable to miss your spouse more at the tail ends of the day.  And so, I often spend a few minutes in the morning looking through pictures.  Today, I’m retracing our little Canadian honeymoon, which we took in late-July (over ten months after our wedding), and I’d love to share some of the highlights:

Act I: Quebec City

Neither of us had been to the province of Quebec, and we’ve heard so many great things from loved ones, so we decided that we needed to take advantage of its proximity while our home base was still Boston, easily driving distance.  We started our trip within the walls of the old city of Quebec–it was like we had driven into Paris!

We stayed at the luxurious Hotel Acadia, enjoyed a couple’s massage, and ate every meal, drank every espresso outside.
