Finally... FINALLY received "the" call from the visa office to say that my passport is available for pickup this afternoon. Bar Stewards.... they certainly took their time - especially since I got the OK from Ottawa on Monday. But I'll have it in hand by 5pm today, and then I get to finally tell all and sundry about my plans. Keeping it inside for this past week has been TORTURE!
And if the visa news wasn't exciting enough, that's not all! My blogger friend Jules arrives into the T Dot this afternoon for a combo work/vacation visit. We've been "blog buddies" for some years now, but this will be the first time we're actually meeting and I can't wait! I have gone into super tourist guide mode and have HEAPS of exciting surprises planned for her over the weekend.
