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!
