We took a little vacay to Canada this past week. We flew into Halifax, spent most of our time in Nova Scotia, with a day on Prince Edward Island. (Anne of Green Gables, anyone??)
I came home with two large suitcases of laundry, three packages of Canadian candy bars, 900+ photos of breathtaking scenery, and some sort of virus.
Not feeling really well right now.
At least I got sick on the last day of vacation.
Hoping extra rest will kick it.
I am gearing up for an epic blog post with pretty pictures, but I need to get feeling human again.
Things I may have said this week in Canada:
"I am soooo hungry I would welcome McDonalds food."
"This "McLobster" isn't so bad."
"Man! That guy's breath smelled so bad...it is like he saw me coming, picked a fresh stick of poo out of his butt and chewed it up just to talk to me."
"You know what is wrong with the U.S.? We don't have Coffee Crisp."
"Oooo look! MOOSE!!" (We never saw any live moose, but every time I said it, the kids stopped fighting long enough to search the trees.)
"Please tell me this "family pack" of Timbits is supposed to feed a family of one."
"I think I have gained like six pounds, but really, when you consider it is Canadian pounds, then maybe after it is converted, it is only like 3.5 back home..."
"I am so confused about which recycling bin to put my gum wrapper in...I think I will just eat it, and let my body recycle it."
We loved Canada.
I can totally see why my Canadian friends have dual citizenship.
There is no way I would be able to give up my connection to such a beautiful place.
The people were friendly and courteous, and proud of their country.
It was very clean, and just breathtaking in scenery.
Pictures and stuff to come...
