Declan is participating in the Terry Fox Run at his school on September 29. His online donation page is here: http://www.terryfox.ca/declane.

(And because I'm old, I still have very clear memories of Terry Fox. He is part of my childhood in a way that will never truly be part of my son's. But Declan does run because he loves running and he loves running for Terry Fox.)

How is it that it's only Monday morning and I'm already bagged? This isn't fair.

So this week and next week I'm in the office in KW Mon-Thurs. That's a LOT of time away from home, and it makes me unhappy. I'm glad it's just two weeks, and that the week after these two weeks, I'll be on vacation in Killarney.

It's not that I dislike anything about it here. I like the office, I like my co-workers, I like my job. I like my mother and I like the city and I like knowing that Luna is also happy here. I may have grown up here, but it's no longer home. I miss Maize. I'm not in my own bed. I don't have my own kitchen. I don't have my own stuff. I don't have my library of RPG books or my own desktop computer or any of the video games I play (except the casual ones I play on my phone, like Simon's Cat Crunch Time or Pokemon Go).

I'm actually glad of it, because when my mother inevitably sells the house I grew up in (probably sometime within the next 5-10 years), I won't be as gutted as I might have been in the past.

But for now, I miss my Maize, I miss my house, and I wanna go home.

I am easily amused.

Sunny, who continues to be a delight, decided to jump on the desk. I picked him up to give him a cuddle and he farted. This is not, in and of itself, news, since kittens are pretty gassy, but it was an actual toot and not the silent-but-deadly variety.

I am laughing like a loon.

I am 12. :D

(So much has happened since we got the little doofbucket: Sheldon had - and recovered from - an $1100 tummy ache acute pancreatitis, we went to the zoo - my feet didn't hurt even with all of that walking, and school started up again. Did I mention I like the quiet? I love the quiet.)

Looking forward to another vacation

In about three weeks, I'll be off to my very favourite place in the entire world, Killarney, for five days of sitting next to a lake in the woods and reading books.

This time, I am leaving Luna with my mother. I love my dog, and I love taking her camping sometimes, but taking Luna camping is basically a 24/7 exercise in "managing the dog," and I had enough of that at the cottage. It's not relaxing. It can be awesome and fun! But not relaxing, and what I want to get out of this vacation is some serious relaxing.

So the dog is staying behind. Maize may or may not come with me, depending on several factors (vacation time, etc.). Whether alone or with Maize, however, I am still going and I'm looking forward to it so much.

Early October is my favourite time for camping. The crowds are down, the bugs are gone, the days can still be warm and the nights beautifully cool. The trees are in the middle of changing and the whole park is gorgeous. I love it so much. I just set up a comfy camp chair on the rocks and read a ton of books.

I mean, LOOK AT THIS PLACE: Cut for pics )

I cannot wait to return. It is my home.
