Today is my last day in Ontario and the last day of our IT Conference. We go just until 2PM and then the bus will take those of us who are heading to the airport for destinations across this great country of ours. I have had a pretty good time while in Ontario. I have eaten a LOT of food, a lot of desserts and drank a lot of wine.
The stay in Ontario was a good one. I saw a lot of friends that I have not seen in a while which was great. I did miss out on seeing some people that I wanted to, you can’t fit everything in, unfortunately. I will be back in August for a couple of weeks, I am planning on driving back and bringing the dogs with me. That will be fun, and crazy.
The IT Conference was pretty good. It was great to see new and old co-workers and put names to a lot of faces as we’ve had a lot of turnover in the last three years since the last conference. We have a shortened day at the conference today and I am not even sure what the presentations cover today, guess it will be a surprise to me.
The hotel that I have been staying in is nice, but nothing really special. The food has been good, not great. The desserts have been amazing though, I don’t need any more desserts, for quite a while, well, lunch will be an exception. That will be it though, back to my normal routine tomorrow and I am really looking forward to it.
I land in Calgary tonight around 10:30PM and should be at my friends place by 11:15 or so. I am spending the night so that I don’t have to drive home that late. I plan on heading out tomorrow morning early, perhaps 5AM, have not completely decided as yet. I am looking forward to getting Blondie, Hera and Twix from the pet resort, I will be happy to see them, and they will be happy to see me, I am sure.
Friday will be a relaxing day of nothing. I bet I will have a nice nap in the afternoon and then catch game three of the World Series. Houston had better win because they will NOT take 4 straight from the Nationals, I don’t think. Yesterday’s game was a stinker and I turned it off around 10:30PM. It was 4-2 and then, in a matter of minutes, I was told it was 8-2, I was glad I turned it off.
Thanks for the hospitality, Ontario. I’ve had a blast but it’s time to get home. Safe travels to all my co-workers traveling today as well.
