I spent a few days in the prairies of Canada this week. Besides the temperature being drastically different than San Diego (duh, right?), it was a good trip. However, I have one unanswered question. Why are Canadians so darn nice?
Is it in the water or air? Because if I lived in that cold, I think I’d be cranky. Even the immigration folks who always have to review the contract are super nice.

Mr. Boomer and I will be working on our tax returns this weekend which will be so much fun (much eye-rolling is going on as I write this).
