two years gone

This day will never be easy. I will always think about that morning. That day. That new reality of life without my dad. This morning, I desperately tried to remember where I kept the grief journal I wrote last year, the one that I couldn’t even think until a year had gone by. Where was…

Welcome to 2020!

This week, I’ve been working on my “Unraveling” workbook. I’ve completed the workbook since 2015, I think. It usually takes me a few days. First you look back at the year that is being ushered out and then you look ahead to the year that lies ahead. This exercise isn’t just write down some resolutions….

haircut!

The sky was blue and full of puffy clouds today, but the temperature was chilly (for here) most of the day, in the low 50s. I have missed getting out to exercise these last few days. Today, I spent more time editing. The UC applications are due tomorrow so there’s been a flurry of activity…

Thanksgiving

Rainy all day. I got up around 7, went to Starbucks & got a donut for Mom. Read a little while then edited most of the day. We talked to my dad’s brother & sisters. We talked to Sandy. Mom & I went to eat at 12Sixty. It was very quiet. They had a holiday…

Another post-midnight post

Wow. It’s not that I’m busy in the evenings, it just doesn’t dawn on me until late to remember to post. Rainy morning. Starbucks, editing work, then to bookstore. Home, Twitter book club (first time-fun!), more editing, dinner, watch TV (Gilmore Girls marathon!), play game on my phone. Mom & I chatted about Christmas. Shopping,…

Preparing for rain

I almost let another day go by without posting. I honestly just plumb forgot about it yesterday. *shrug* Maybe it’s because I got a little thrown off my usual routine yesterday when I was asked if I could go in to work at the bookstore to cover a shift for someone who called in sick….

One week til Thanksgiving

I got up and it wasn’t raining so I knew I should get outside. I packed both my hiking shoes and my tennis shoes since I didn’t know which one I wanted to do. I ended up hiking on the Juanita Cooke Trail. It wasn’t muddy, just in places. I walked a little over 4…

Two 4 One

I didn’t write yesterday (probably could have in the morning), but by the end of the night, I was toast! So tired! Mom and I went to Disneyland(!) to celebrate my 48th birthday(!). We had a great day! I secured my annual pass holder card (new design!), and we were off to the traditional first…

birthday eve

2nd post for today (11/18) I got up and went for a walk. Man, I like getting out and getting some exercise. I like it so much more than going to a gym. I may kind of dread getting my ass going, but once I’m there, it’s awesome. I went to Ralph B Clark park…

Friday the 15th

Woke up late (for me), around 7:30 am, but I was at the hitting wall by 8:45 am. I stayed there until about 10:30 am. I so enjoy it. I am curious how I would do against a human. I know I’m not moving as well as I could be to get to balls, but…
