I’ve been sloooow in blogging about our 24 hours in Montreal and would probably skip it, but I need advice!! We went to Montreal and ended up going… nowhere but the hotel. So next time, I want to have a list of shops and sites and a PLAN so I don’t get stuck again. Please post any can’t-miss places in the comments! The one place I realllly wanted to go was Nota Bene, but we missed the open hours.
We did get a lovely visit in with Annie, Pierre, and baby Olive – it was so, so nice to sit around and talk with friends. It was too cold for the baby to be out and about, so we ended up going back to our hotel room. The room had a little sitting area, and we ordered drinks and dinner from room service – no worries about the baby getting fussy, but with the feeling of “going out.” It was perfect.
It also really drove home how I haven’t made any friends yet here in Vermont outside of coworkers and family – I know that sounds RIDICULOUS since we’ve been here over a year, but working an hour from home and commuting means we don’t really want to hang out in the town we work in or go out after work. Plus, being married & older without kids (me, not Sean) is basically like being a unicorn in Vermont.
Speaking of babies, my birthday week was pretty hard. My ladytimes were 5 days late, which NEVER happens, but then came the day after my birthday. So, I had a very hopeful birthday and a big letdown. I had another fertility test last Friday with another “perfect! more than perfect!” outcome. So frustrating – as is turning 37 and getting the age talk from the doctor. I KNOW I’m old, but may I remind them that I wasn’t that old when we started trying!? Still no answers, and so it goes…
