Happy Leap Day!

It has been a real­ly unpro­duc­tive leap day com­pared to the last one, which I man­aged to doc­u­ment in pho­tographs. Today basi­cal­ly all I’ve done is wake up, go online, decide that I want to do the road trip to Ottawa in May, just in time for the 60th anniver­sary of the Cana­di­an Tulip Fes­ti­val, get obsessed with the plan­ning of the said road trip, search obses­sive­ly for afford­able places to stay in Ottawa, make lunch, have lunch, show­er, go to the gro­cery store, cook din­ner, get grumpy due to PMS, have din­ner, and here we are! Excit­ing, huh? At least last leap day I got to do some clean­ing. But then again, four years ago today, we were still liv­ing in our tiny, one bed­room apart­ment in Water­loo, which wasn’t all that dif­fi­cult to clean. We just had to throw every­thing into the big clos­ets and/or the bed­room, which also dou­bled as a stor­age room, and we’d be gold­en. Oh the hor­ror that was our Water­loo bed­room! I shud­der just think­ing about it.

Hmmm, I just did a quick browse through my blog archives and it looks like I made a mon­u­men­tal deci­sion (or a big leap, if you don’t mind the pun) that changed my life in a good way every leap year since 2000. In 2000, I start­ed blog­ging, and we all know how it changed my life. In 2004, I decid­ed to leave Indone­sia behind and move to Cana­da. In 2008, we made the big deci­sion to get a mort­gage and buy a house. I won­der what kind of mon­u­men­tal deci­sion I’m going to make this year, if any. Only time will tell!
