Two Awesome Weekends

Two weekends ago, I visited my dad in Toronto. Actually, I was there for five days. I arrived on Thursday, and since the next Tuesday was Victoria Day, a public holiday in Canada, I left Tuesday. We had a great time seeing the city and even spent a day at Niagara Falls! In true "Dad and Adina style," it took us 4 hours to make the 1 1/2 hour trip because the freeway was closed (and other obstacles), but it wouldn't have been one of our adventures without those hurdles! And the Falls were beautiful! (My camera battery ran out so my dad bought me a disposable one and I still have to develop the photos - so there are more to come!)
Then, last weekend was my 5 year college reunion. I remember starting this blog a few months after I graduated, and I can't believe it's been five years!

I had my last day of trusts and estates today. Got on the subway and it was having signal problems. At the next stop, I got out and walked to a different subway line, about 10-15 minutes away. Got on the train and of course, there was an announcement that it was running on a different line. There was an announcement that the next one was running on the correct line, and since with my shortcut that would be so much faster, I got off and waited. The next train was the wrong line, so I waited some more. And then there was the right train AGAIN running on the wrong line. By this time, class was starting in 10 minutes. There was no way I could get there on time. I jumped out of the subway, and started running around looking for a taxi. And of course, because it was raining, combined with the fact that I live in Queens, I couldn't find any. FINALLY, I found a taxi. A very nice taxi. But I was still half an hour late!
The worst part of all? I left my Ishbel shawlette in the taxi. Cry
