I’m in Montreal this week for work, a city I’ve never been to before. It’s a beautiful city that feels much more diverse than a lot of places I have been to in the U.S. It has a European-feel due to some of the older architecture and I’m sure all the people speaking French and the street signs in French contribute to that, too.
We went to a delicious restaurant tonight and I had creme brulee for dessert! It was DELICIOUS.
I’ve lived in the Midwest for most of my life and in suburbia for the great majority of that and I always wonder- would I like living in a city? I love having lots of space in my house and a nice backyard, but I also think I would enjoy being able to walk out my front door and go to dinner, work, shopping, etc. Would that wear off, though, and then I would just feel crowded and claustrophobic? Maybe someday we’ll make the move and see what city-life would be like.
Hopefully I’ll get to see more of Montreal tomorrow, unfortunately the co-workers I travel with are all males, are much older than I am, and I have very little in common with any of them, so I don’t really have a ‘buddy’ to go exploring around the city with. I’m a little down right now- I always miss the Mr. and the puppy when I’m away and I’m really not loving (or liking) my job too much right now. I know that a job is always going to be ‘work’ and I have no idea what I really want to do, but I just don’t think this is it 😦
Sorry for being a downer…maybe I had too much wine at dinner!
I was too tired to workout this morning, so I’m going to hit the sack and be up early for a workout tomorrow. Hopefully that puts me in better spirits tomorrow!
