Julie can’t come to her blog right now….

Because she has laryngitis and she’s en route to Ottawa to renew her passport and buy more medicine and get an enormous cheque from the bank to pay for the new car she bought even though she doesn’t officially have a long-term teaching gig yet for the new school year.

Oh, and I have this note so I’m totally allowed to ditch:

"I DO have a note from my doctor...but nobody can read it!"

I promise to share pics of my car baby (a steel-grey 2016 Subaru Forester named Bubba Gump) when I return next week! Tootles, my loves!

I want MOAR!

Macros-moar-100514-55

Hey there, fabulous people! I’d love to stay and chat, but I’m currently en route to Missouri to begin my MOAR Tour! I’ll be spending the next four days with two of my best gal pals. One lives in Missouri, and the other in Arkansas, hence the MOAR acronym.

From Muskoka to Ottawa!

Back in 2007, as a ripe young graduate fresh from her first university degree, I worked as a Recreation Manager at Rocky Crest Resort in Muskoka, Ontario (a.k.a. cottage country). That was also the year I gave birth to the kidney stone that ate Tokyo, but that’s another story for another time. My duties at the resort included running all resort activities, hiring and training the summer recreation staff, supervising a daily kids’ camp, designing and implementing team-building events for corporate groups, and taking guests on tours of the lake in our pontoon boat. Needless to say, I was a very busy girl. But it was a pretty cool gig, I must admit. I mean, check this place out!
