What the #^$% happened to her?

Hello friends!  Still alive and kicking here in Toronto, Ontario.  After a lengthy hiatus I've returned - for one post at least!

Most of you already have the skinny on this one but here's how it all played out...

Last fall I met a boy at the climbing gym.  (I fell off the wall while in my harness, he was walking below, the rope was stretchy, I didn't land on him but almost did, he said something in an accent, I thought he called me ninja, he started calling me ninja...)  Over the Christmas holidays I got sick and forgot him.  I had the ebola-typhus and pretty much nearly died.  Then in February we met up again and I took up his offer of a drink at the pub after climbing.

Here we are three months later!  I am smitten. :)  It has been quite a whirlwind.  His name is Yoav - he is from Israel, here doing a Masters in Biochemistry at U of T.  His current work placement is at Sick Kids hospital.  He is smart, crazy, funnay, positive, sexy, climb-y ... Yes!  Yay!

In April we adventured to Nevada, Utah and Arizona with his 21 family members where we toured in 5 RVs, caravan style!  This was an adventure that I can't begin to explain.  All from Israel, all Hebrew-speaking and all speaking at the same time!

Now I am settled back into work, climbing, hanging with Yoav, livin' and lovin'.  For a while there things were new and surreal and all my regular routines slipped away.  Now that my course is over (taking summer off!), and the trip is over, I'm finding more time to get back to myself.  I am particularly excited about exercising (cardio? what is that?) and outdoor climbing.  Yoav took Harry and I on Monday to Rattlesnake point and it was a blast!

Anyway I hope to write much more this summer and even posts some pics.  Hope all is well with all of you!  (All 3 of you!)
