√ Now that the rain has stopped and the sun is out, the work on the backyard continues. Noisy, messy work involving lots of rocks, stones, dirt– and mulch. Heaps and heaps of mulch. This project has dragged on for too long. “Just get it done,” she screams inside her head.
√ I’m spending about 3 hours per day in the car driving Z-D to work and back. It’s all interstate highway or downtown driving at rush hour. I’m a suburban babe, so this sort of driving is a bit stressful for me.
√ We’re social butterflies this week.
- Drinks and dinner with friends from long ago who we bumped into while walking into Lowe’s. Go figure. Decided on the spot that we needed to get together for dinner to catch up, so on Sunday night we did. It was great fun.
- Dinner with one of Z-D’s former co-workers who is in town. Always good to hear what this guy is doing. He’s smart, interesting– definitely not one of the sheeple. Hallelujah!
- Ballgame as business guests. I like suites. I like tasty food. I like free beer. This event aims to be the trifecta of good times for me.
√ Got my curly hair cut shorter yesterday. It’s more like the Keri Russell hairstyle that everyone hated years ago– which I always thought looked good on her. I’ve got lots of layers with more curl and wave going on now. Kind of kicky. Less predictable… if that is even possible!
