Travel plans

All right everyone. It's been a while. I hope you all had nice holidays and the new year is starting well.

I have only seven weeks left at the day care. That's a good thing. Well, actually I kinda like it there now. Oh, I guess I didn't tell you that the bitchy director got her sorry butt fired after a couple of complaints. So, after that everything has improved a lot. Good for me.

We were in Chicago right before Christmas. It was a fun little weekend trip to see old friends there. We went to downtown and it was nuts. Couple weeks before the holidays Michigan Ave. just gets freaking crazy. Although it was rainy, grey and cold, Chicago is still one of my favorite cities. :)

I'm going back to Finland in March. Now I am trying to find cheap flight back here.. I have my return ticket TO Finland, so I need another round-trip form Helsinki to Toronto. Luckily the flight are a lot cheaper coming this way from Finland.. These guys consider Finland as one of those exotic countries (which sure is true) and air fare is pretty crazy.
I will be staying in Finland for three to four weeks and then return to Canada.

In late April Sami and I are going to CUBA!! I'm very excited about the upcoming trip. Well, who wouldn't be? We found pretty nice deal on a 2-week package vacation. The hotel is all inclusive, right on the beach. Water is turquoise and the sun is hot. Ok, now I'm annoying everybody.

Sami is leaving for Barbados this Sunday. The board of management of this company he works for is located there. Nice. I will be staying home with Sigvard. He'll be gone only for a week, so I'm thinking I'll survive.

Take care everybody.
