Work, mountain biking, tiredness

I’m thoroughly exhausted, and have been every night this week. Yesterday was particularly long, since I worked and then went to the David Suzuki Tour event to take photos, which was really just another type of work. It’s good, though – I’m just tired. Got home pretty late last night, and just basically went right to bed. Adam’s been in a really quiet mood, worried about his future with work and such, to the point that when I was talking with him I just couldn’t say the right things and seemed to make things worse, so I backed off. He’s playing piano now.

Work is keeping me busy, to the point that I don’t really have a free moment anymore. This is absolutely fantastic. I’m thrilled to be busy. It’s been quite possibly years since I’ve had this much to keep me occupied, and it’s all so varied that I don’t even get bored.

I think I got some great shots of the Doc while he spoke last night. He really is a passionate speaker. I’m hoping I captured some of that while I was taking photos. Raffi performed too, which was entertaining. I ended up selling my ticket to someone who really wanted to go, which was good – I didn’t have to pay to work, and someone who wanted to see the show was able to take my seat. Fortunately Chris was there to sit with Adam.

We may go biking on Sunday.

We’re also planning a big biking trip to the Chilcotins this summer. We want to do a guided tour with an outfitter, but we need one more rider to commit to going, and it’s not looking like we can get one. This makes me very sad. We can do a different trip, based out of a lodge and self-propelled, but the guided trip moving from place to place was so very appealing to me. Like a canoe trip on a bike. Plus, it looks like I might be the only girl going either way.

I’ll post some of my pictures from last night’s event once I have them edited.

    If/when I get a job in Seattle, Laurel an I will make a point to come biking with you guys some time.

    Taking a job in a non-profit, for its downsides, would be worth it if you were kept busy doing something you were passionate about. I still admire you for your job choice. =)

      I’m definitely keeping busy, and if they keep asking me to do photography I certainly won’t complain… It’s awesome.

      Me too, it’s nice that someone else got to see him.

      The pics turned out really well.
