Pet resort, travel, work and fuel

After work this afternoon, I am bringing the dogs to Treetops Pet Resort for a night.  This is Twix’s first visit to the resort.  I wanted to have her there for a night before I drop her (and Blondie, Hera) for a month.  I am sure that she will be fine, this is more for my piece of mind.  If I drop them off today, they have fun tonight and tomorrow and then I pick them up, hopefully she will associate with that when I drop them off next week and don’t return for over a month.  Again, more for me, I am sure but piece of mind if a good thing to have.  That’s the only major issue I really have with this upcoming trip, leaving the dogs for so long.  I know they will be well cared for and will have a great time, but I am sure they will miss me and I know I will miss them, at the same time as enjoy a bit of a break.  Well, 3 or 4 days is a good break, a month is a bit much.

I am sure I will not have to return to Mauritius in the future or go on any extended work trips either.  A day here, a day there, perhaps a week when we have a conference in Ontario.  I am sure I am over-thinking it, but hey, they see me nearly all day every day.

My passport will be available for pickup next week.  My guarantor got a call from Service Canada about my passport application.  Good that they follow-up on such things I guess, wouldn’t want just anyone who shouldn’t have a passport getting one.  Everything else is in place.  I am looking forward to a few busy days in Ontario for sure.  It will be good to see friends and family.  Meals are planned at various restaurants that I like, will be a good time.  It will be interesting to work at the National office for a few days as well – commuting via subway for 3 days as well – just like a commoner.  🙂

I was pleasantly surprised when I filled my car with gas yesterday.  The tank was nearly empty and I was able to fill it for $40.  I have not been able to do that in years.  Years and years, actually, likely since the late 90’s, I’d guess.  It is obviously a smaller tank than the Nitro, but I got about the same mileage.  If I did all highway driving, it would be interesting to see what mileage I would get.  It is going to save me a bunch of money, about $80 per month anyway, just in gas.  That will be nice.

So, tomorrow, since I am dog free during the day, I plan on going into the office for the first time in 2.5 years to work for the day.  I don’t need to, I just figured why not.  I will know some of the staff and managers, most of the senior managers and partners and, best of all perhaps, the coffee is free.  When I finish work, I will go and get the dogs who I am sure will be happy to see me.

I have a few things to wrap up before I leave for my trip – mostly baseball related.  Gotta finish the orders for uniforms.  It is going well so I expect no issues.

Well, the day starts soon, hope you have a good one.
