A couple of weeks ago (in Albania) my friends told me I really needed a break- or in other words- I needed to go home to Canada for a vacation. They could see my irritation level was rising and my patience with everything around me was really thin. I was angry about everything around me from the lack of enforcement of the no-smoking laws to the lack of caution by other drivers. My friends were astonished that I even could get angry. I'm generally such a smiley, happy person. So I took their advice and here I am in a small village in the middle of nowhere in Nova Scotia.
Mom and I were out this afternoon- we went to the video store and to the lovely little bakery. It's just so nice to be here. The people are sweet, friendly, and helpful. Small town Canada should be a role model for all the world.
So how surprised was I when I impatiently blurted out the following sentence, "My goshhhhhhhhhh, the drivers around here are just toooooooo darn slow!"
Mom didn't bat an eyelash and simply said "Kimmi, you NEED a vacation!"
