Busy busy busy

I’ve been rather busy lately.  For example,…

Saturday, I had to get up unreasonably early (for a Saturday) and move my car out of the parking garage because it was being cleaned.  Then I headed off to meet up with the rest of my dragonboat team for our first practice of the season.  After the practice I headed down to Mallorytown to replace the container for one of my geocaches (GC6009).  It was about three and a half years old and was no longer watertight.  After replacing it, I logged a nearby cache (GC14V4P) before heading back to Ottawa.

Sunday, I got up early because I was playing bells at church in the morning.  Afterwards, I went out to brunch with my parents and then headed off to do a little shopping before stopping by the Parkdale Market en route to the church for the final rehearsals for our end of season concert later that evening.  The concert was a lot of fun and we sounded great.  More about the concert in a future entry.

Monday, I got up even earlier so I could make it down to the Congress Centre to attend Day 1 of the Socio-economic Conference.  In fact, I presented a paper on home heating behaviours in Canadian homes I’ve been working on for the last few months.  I’m happy to report that the presentation went well. 🙂

Today (Tuesday), I got up early again and headed back to the Congress Centre for Day 2 of the conference.  After the conference, I headed home, grabbed my stuff and headed out for another dragonboat practice.  We had almost a full boat for the practice, which is always a bonus considering there’s 22 people in the boat, plus our coach.  Afterwards, we headed to a local restaurant for a bite to eat.

No wonder I’m tired.  At least I don’t have to get up quite so early tomorrow…
