The Best of What’s To Come

by Vanessa on August 9, 2011

Nine sleeps left and then it’s time to make the long trek back to Toronto.  Going home means getting back to reality…this I am not looking forward to.  I am, however, excited to get back to some sort of normalcy (whatever that is).

I can’t wait to sleep in my own bed.  I have missed my wonderfully, comfortable Tempur-Pedic mattress.  I.LOVE.MY.BED.  I also can’t wait to buy new linens to accompany this bed.  Click here for a refresher. The beds here have been okay – a little lumpy.  But that’s to be expected.  It’s a rental after-all.

The Angels are also getting excited to see their bedrooms, sleep in their beds, play with their toys and see their friends.  I am hoping the toys feel like new…Christmas in August.

Chris is anxious to have internet – FULL TIME.  He loves his tech toys.  I know he is itching to get back to playing in computer-land.

I have lots to get organized when I get back home, like re-instating my job. I’m working that angle as we speak.  I think I may have 2 out of the 3 classes back – waiting on the third.  Fingers are crossed!

I can’t wait to get back to the gym and a regular workout regime.  My body misses it.  I seriously (no joke) need to lose the 10 pounds I have gained.  My clothes are feeling too tight.  My body is changing shape – the only thing I’m happy with is the size of my boobs!  That’s all!

After we complete the Try-A-Tri (my goal – to complete it), I am going to treat myself to a much needed pedicure.  Oh – you have been missed!  I’m also going to get some manicuring / grooming in other areas of my body taken care of.  Sorry – TMI.  I know!    But it’s my blog :)  TMI – that gets me thinking of the lingo used today.  The new “short-hand”.  The kids today have so many acronyms – half of which I don’t even understand.  I need to consult my teenage cousins for translation – they are in the know!

I’m looking forward to seeing my family and getting together with friends.  Getting back in the pool, practicing my synchro skills (or lack thereof.)  Buying a coffee at Starbucks and seeing the local haunts and updating my Fall wardrobe with the newest and trendiest of clothes.

I wanted to buy this Burberry knock-off button down shirt here that I love.  But they want 40 EU for it.  Forget that.  I’m going to be on the hunt back home for a similar shirt – but not at Burberry prices.

That’s really about all. That’s really everything I miss about home.   Everything else I am sure has remained the same.  That’s what’s so weird.  Chris and I were talking about this the other day.  We feel like Toronto is still the same city – but we, having lived in France for a summer, have grown and changed.

Time will tell!

J’espere que tous va bien!

PS – Trying to convince Chris he should come get a pedicure with me.  I think a husband and wife spa day is in order.  He is not down with the idea!  Oh well – his loss – I shall go it alone.
