Things are really ramping up at work and although I have not been told explicitly, I’m treating the months between March and June completely off-limits for vacation. So that rules out going anywhere with Lil Sis in April.
“Busy season” has started and it’s exhilerating. Previously, my “busy season” with a research group was before major grant deadlines which for my role was just a couple of weeks a couple times a year. In this role, we’re all nose-to-the-grind and hunkering down. I’m thrilled to gain the experience.
Here’s today’s text messages [somewhat edited] for today….

me: I get to check [coworker’s] work yay it’s fun
me: Just an hour of OT or less I think
NPY: Who wants OT on a Friday anyway???
me: No life TOE
*TOD = term of endearment
******** This is a blog series complementing my regular blog posts with the original idea was to share our parallel lives, NPY’s and mine, while I’m in Toronto and he’s in Vancouver, 3,400 km away. For me, it’s been pretty fun because I’m this long-time blogger and enjoy repackaging parts of my life in “blog bites”. It’s been more difficult for NPY who hasn’t experienced a change in scenery (although I do not think it is necessary) so I’ll be continuing this with just my photos. I might have something every day. I might not.
