I got back from the Vancouver area and even managed to submit my expense report. As I expected, my time in Richmond was work, the hotel, and walking back and forth between the two. The first day there I walked by the Aberdeen mall, as that was my Skytrain stop, but it looked dead and I had to get to the customer site.
Foodwise, Kiyo sushi was probably the highlight, though the fish tacos in the Vancouver airport were good. One late night I was looking forward to McDonalds because the hotel restaurant closed at 9, but they locked their doors around 9, too.
The redeye to Montreal wasn't that full, but I still had a dude in front of me recline. Then just as I was about to nod off the flight attendant woke me to make sure my seat belt was on, asshole. I was in my seat, I wasn't sprawled across the row, but he woke me. Jerk.
Flying internationally is nice in a pandemic, both flights were near empty.
I had trouble with my expense report. I have to report expenses against my itinerary, my first itinerary was 14 to 18 June. When I submitted a McDonald's breakfast for 15 June against it, it didn't take and I was told expenses have to be within the itinerary dates. I guess the backend thought my itinerary was just June 18th. So, I submitted a lot of expenses on just that date, I hope it goes through.
The trip back took about 21 hours, and I wasn't allowed to submit a meal for that itinerary. Travel sucks.
Nearly_twenty_year_old got on the Dean's list for the Spring 2021 semester, I hope the uni gives a little more aid for next year.
Nearly_twenty_five_year_old is now a head lifeguard and working full time, which is good, as she gets kicked off our benefits next year. The supplied benefits are not that good, but what are you going to do?
The heatwave broke, and our window a/c and house wiring is not up to the task. If I crank it, and nearly_twenty_year_old cranks hers the breakers flip. I think I will remove it and take the cover off and clean it, it helped last year. I need to clean nearly_twenty_year_old's too, she thinks that where the silverfish came from.
I did get a decent night's sleep last night, but it doesn't make up for three hot, sleepless nights.
I have a four day weekend coming up, and I have lots to do. Mrs. Ha is working Saturday and Monday (hooray, holiday rates) and we're going to my parents on Sunday to celebrate the youngest's birthday a day early and see the fireworks. The biggest priority is putting in a bathroom exhaust fan, but I may get to other things.
