I have to apologize for not writing back. I was silly and got hooked on a TV show (6 seasons) few months ago and became very compulsory that I watched it. I was missing on sleep and work was suffering and I ended up quite angry at myself and yet I was unable to stop it. Couple of weeks ago I finally watch the last episode... I have been going to bed with Max at 8pm any chance I got since then and have been trying to force myself to stick to more consistent working hours. It feels much better already. Unfortunately, I have neglected my family and friends. I am sorry.
I am catching up on the emails that have gathered in my email box. Please bear with me.
Here are few updates. Max and I are probably flying to Bulgaria for couple of weeks around June 20th. My side of the family reunion... There is also a chance that I will be able to retrieve (and keep) a portion of the money from the house my parents sold in Toronto and my father deposited in a, presently bankrupted, bank in Sofia. I have yet to read your pointers about investment but I have played with the thought of buying real estate and have the mortgage be covered by its rent (as an alternative form of investment). This will require further discussion in the not so far future.
Max and I were also invited to go on a camping trip at the end of July with a bunch of Bulgarian families with small kids (Max's age). I got very excited about this. I have not been camping in a while and I miss it. I hope that Max will like it. I am about to ask for vacation days for it (when we travel to Bulgaria, I continue working remotely from there). This is the link - http://barefootresort.ca/ (I have not browsed it yet, we are pitching our tent at my friends spot (they apparently allow for two tents per spot and this will let us safe money too : ) ))
If it was not for the camping trip, Max and I were planning to come your way at the beginning of August. We may still do that, say the second week of August, if that ok. We would love to visit you, try the vegetables from your garden, and walk the beach. It will be so cool. Let me confirm that in the following weeks (June at the latest). I have 7000+ airmiles points that I do not know how to use and I do not want to loose them.
Otherwise, Max and I really enjoy soccer class. We are trying to convince Chris to join us for one of the sessions. Max loves his Daddy. We have come up with a new game where each one of us tells stories in turns. Max's stories are the funniest. Max dislocated his elbow again but this time Chris managed to put it in place. Isn't this great! Life goes on as usual. Busy.
Thank you for being patient with us.
