Remember the song - I'm leaving on a jet plane................... well I am leaving - not on a jet plane but on Via rail
and heading up to Kingston after lunch today - to spend a long weekend with W.
Everyone is surprised that I am going by train - it's supposed to be a fairly nice weekend - why don't I save my train trips for the bad weather. Well everyone would be right -
BUT - here's my logic.
First off W gave me 2 return trips by train to Kingston for my birthday. SO I had the tickets already (well sort of - they were gift cards and I did have to go and actually purchase the ticket)
Secondly I have so much trouble driving home on Sunday - every Sunday!! My eyes get so heavy - almost as heavy as my heart (which never wants to leave W and Kingston) and I land up having to stop a couple of times on the drive home just to walk around and wake up. AND that's without doing anything on the weekend.
This weekend we are going to a play party on Saturday night. AND play parties always make me a little dopey the next day - and needing/wanting/craving multiple naps. And once a very long time ago I promised W I would never ever drive again under the influence of endorphins. (that's a long story and better kept for another time).
So thinking/planning ahead - and assuming I might just be a little high on endorphins - or on the down swing from a high of endorphins - I decided it would be best for me to let someone else do the "driving" so to speak on Sunday. (aren't I a clever girl??)
I do want to check into the bus - as it is half the price of the train - but parking is a wee bit of a problem (at the bus depot) and I need to check into that ......... but considering it costs me at least $80 on gas when I drive - never mind the wear and tear on the car - I am trying to find cheaper alternatives to driving myself.
All that to say - I am off to Kingston. I do expect I can keep you all updated over the weekend - a rare event - as I am bringing my netbook- and will have all sorts of time to play on the pc while W watches his terrible awful television shows (cheeky grin).
And while I am thinking of long weekends - and time off - HAPPY TURKEY day to all my friends and readers from the States.
