The downside was the time apart. Working in Toronto during the week and travelling to Wasaga each weekend was a chore. We used Skype, cell phone, email, text and phone calls to keep in touch during the week. But eventually it took it's toll. And is often the case it was a simple statement from a chance meeting that Sally had one day with a lady walking her dog that did it: "Why are you guys living apart?...Life's too short for that".
So now we live in a leafy area of central Etobicoke literally steps from the Humber River. Here's a photo of the creek that runs down one of the trails I now have the fortune to run along each day:
So was it a fair trade? Sally and I think so. And so does Tia who now enjoys chasing all the squirrels that inhabit the woods just outside our back door.
It's nice to be home. And a final note: Sally never did run into that lady and her dog again.
Until next time...
