It's been kind of tough around the ranch these days. I had the readjustment after my trip to Warsaw. I've been miserably sick with a sinus infection since last Wednesday. Last night I discovered unwelcome tenants in my closet. At least twice a week, I've wanted to curl up into a ball and rock back and forth while moaning. However, there are things to look forward to! Yes! I can't wait for BlogHer to reveal the semifinalists for the Voices of the Year Contest tomorrow. I modestly nominated three of my posts: Neighborliness and It's Here! in the Opinion/Editorial category, and Yom Hashoah in the Life category. Regardless of my own results, I look forward to finding out which great posts are featured.

In the evening, Husband and I are jetting off to Montreal for the long weekend. I've never been there before, and I'm looking forward to exploring this unique city. Also, I can't wait to dig into the great eats. Will Montreal bagels kick the hole out of New York bagels, as I've heard? How is the pastrami at Schwartz's? Pastries! I am trying not to dwell on my continued minor sinus pain, but I am fearful that the pressure from the flight could really mess me up. Pastries! Climbing up Mont-Royale. Yes!

The Montreal trip is to celebrate something big: Friday is our 10th wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe that ten years ago, Husband was a blushing groom. (He was blushing as I swore about various things, I'm sure.) I'm incredibly lucky to have him at my side. The next decades are definitely something to be excited about.Damn, I Was Young
