It's the last half an hour of my day at work...and I'm blogging! Yesterday we were up at Two-Four's place in Fergus. She was so happy to have her family around her and it was a fun day. I'm starting to get a little antsy about opening the trailer. The season starts May 1st, but alas, I'm away on business. It sounds so funny to say that: I'm Away On Business. It makes me sound so grown up! Isn't it funny the things that make you feel like a grown up? I don't really know when it happens, or when it happened, or if it is still happening, or if it never stops happening. Do you know what I mean? I used to feel like a grown up when I graduated university, but then I went on to college and didn't feel grown up anymore. Then, when I started working as a nurse, I felt pretty grown up, but I was still living at home. Then, I moved into a condo and felt pretty grown up, but I didn't have a boyfriend (late bloomer) so I wasn't sure. Then I moved to the Middle East, away from all that was comfortable to me, had my own apartment, met a boyfriend, travelled the world, but was having so much fun that I still didn't really feel grown up. In later years I have bought and sold a few condos, and yes, I guess I felt grown up. I felt even more grown up when Greg and I got married. Felt less grown up when we learned we couldn't have kids, and have felt even less grown up of late when we've had some financial difficulties (which hopefully will be sorted out in the next two weeks) . Whereupon I can hopefully start feeling like a grown up again.
And enjoy being a Grown Up who is Going Away on Business.

I know what you mean and blogged about the exact same thing recently! Sometimes I find it hard to believe that I have been married and divorced, hold down a responsible job where I have to travel abroad occasionally, go to meetings, have my own house, pay bills and feed and clothe myself. There is still a big kid inside me. I hope it never leaves! :)
