So basically the day after my last post, the weather turned beautiful. I’ve been able to wear shorts all day everyday since Tuesday. And I don’t see an end of the nice weather.
That’s one thing that I love about Alberta’s weather compared to Nova Scotia. There are really only two seasons here; hot or cold. There isn’t usually a whole lot of waiting around in between.
We also started car shopping! We went out on Tuesday and did a test drive on a Honda Fit. We went to two dealerships so far trying to find the best price. My boyfriend has emailed a few more places and it sounds like we may go check some more this weekend.
I basically just want to hand over my money and be done with it. But I worry about making the wrong choice. During the test drive, I found my seat uncomfortable, but I was in the passenger seat. The drivers seat did feel better, but I didn’t sit there long since I personally didn’t drive the car.
Is it weird that I would spend all this money on a car without actually driving it myself first? It’s been about 5 years since I really drove a vehicle so I’m not comfortable driving at the moment. I’m going to relearn again once I get my car. I really hope everythung goes smoothly and I buy something I’m going to love for a long time.
I had a bunch of days off thanks to my birthday and a national holiday, but it didn’t really go as planned.
The weather was supposed to be nice so I had hoped to spend lots of time outside. But it kept changing each day to cooler than forcasted and it was windy.
I had thought we would get to go to a park for a walk or our first bike ride, but that never happened. It was finally somewhat warm this afternoon so I was able to get out for a walk around my neighborhood.
I had also thought we would go car shopping this weekend which I was pretty excited about. I had finally worked up the nerve to buy my first car and relearn how to drive. But my boyfriend, who is going to do all the talking for me, hasn’t been feeling well all weekend so that plan fell out the window too.
I just feel like I’m wasting all my time off. Every time I have time off, I do nothing. It really bothers me. I hate having nothing to do. I hate sitting around my house all the time. It makes me ask myself why I even take breaks from work if I’m just going to sit around being bored.
On the up side, I got to Skype with my nephews today. I can’t believe how old they are now. During the call they basically just showed me all their toys which was funny. It sounds like they are just as excited about my trip home next month as I am.
