We're having technical difficulties at the moment. I'm trying to get new pictures up from the last couple weeks but we can't get online with our computers at home, and have to transfer pictures to disk and do it from work. So far its not working out so well. Anyhow, this is the one picture I could get up from a day we went to Cape Cod a couple weekends ago. Since then our lives have been "off the hook", so to speak. I'm working and living part-time in Hartford now which is really challenging to say the least (read: bad idea). Matt is flying and driving all over the place. He's currently back in Canada for sales meetings this week. Next week he's off to western PA. Last week he was in his office outside Boston, while I unfortunately was off in Hartford for my first week of this internship, but he did take day trips to Boston and Rhode Island to visit a few stores on his own for the first time. He's becoming very aquainted with traffic circles and catching airport shuttles at 7am. He's still loving the job though. As it turns out, to my surprise, I'm sharing a bedroom with another intern in Hartford in the apartment of a "friend of the organization" they set us up with. I haven't had a roommate since I was a freshman in the dorms, and while it could be worse, there is a reason people move out of the dorms. The women I am living with, in Scituate and Hartford, are very nice. We just very much miss being on our own. We had the house in Scituate to ourselves this weekend, so we could leave our bedroom and watch TV in the living room on a couch instead of in bed, which was a luxury at this point. Hopefully those pics will be up soon!
I added a photo album of our journey so check it out if you have time. It's long so you can pick and choose which pics you want to look at. Everything is going well. Matt is in New Brunswick for training at the main office and is flying back tomorrow morning early. I've been hanging out and doing a lot of nothing. I did go back and drive through the city yesterday which wasn't too harrowing although I got lost about 10 times. Luckily, I didn't have a plan, so it was okay. We've driven around our immediate locale a lot so I already recognize many of the roads, which is actually confusing when I'm lost because it all looks familiar. We are about 25-30 miles from the city, half of which is back roads. I still can't believe I'm here. It was beautiful the day we arrived and we were so happy to be off the road, that everything looked wonderful. That's wearing off for me for the moment, but I'll adjust. As we learned in Oklahoma and Chicago, it can take awhile for a landscape to grow on you. Time for bed...I've got to pick Matt up from the train station very early! He'll write soon about New Brunswick.
