holiday monday

Monday, August 04, 2003

today was super nice. mike spags invited us all up to the boat at GORESKI's RESORT. pretty fun stuff! today involved just soaking up as much sun as possible. just such a lazy day. it was cool to do nothing, and just hang out. 'nothing' involves swimming, watching rob, carrie, and christine wakeboard. 'nothing' also included waiting for the towtruck to arrive when our car wouldn't start when trying to head home to go to andrew mckenzie's bbq. we called CAA and waited for like an hour and a half, but somehow we still had a good time. mike kept saying, "this is great, this is great...". it's cool to be with people that you don't always have to do something with. just sitting around. LYING around.

whatever -
it's terrible how busy toronto makes you. it's easy to get swallowed up in it. i was just thinking about torontonians, as soon as there is some glimpse of a holiday, they pack up the car and RUN to the cottage, out of some desperate attempt to grab some rest like trying to resist drowning. we work so hard in toronto, running ourselves into the ground, trying to make a decent living. i'm not complaining about not having enough to survive, or anything like that - it's just that the RUSH here could kill you. yes, we've been blessed to abundance here, but i've been to countries where they don't have much, but they sure know how to enjoy rest time, and well, frankly, their lives. i think that especially because even more recently, how both parents are almost "REQUIRED" to work, it only heightens the busyness of the family life.

it's certainly not the vortex i want to get wrapped up into.
