work, blood, other work, Blue Apron & other stuff

The first ‘work’ was therapy. I told my therapist that as I was sitting in the waiting room, it occurred to me that between sessions, I don’t often think about what we talk about. It’s so much easier to not. I know that’s why I quit going to therapy the first time. I didn’t want…

calling on my word

What have I been doing the past week? In a word: work. Han left for a mini-tour in NoCal with Flan on Wednesday night. On Tuesday night, we were going to have stuffed pork chops. I took the chops out of the freezer on Monday evening and put them in the fridge. On Tuesday night,…

mid-month check-in

I meant to write last weekend, but I got sidetracked by my insides. Let’s pick-up where I left off. On Sunday, 1/5, I did something I haven’t done in a long time. I went to a movie. By myself. I saw “The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.” I haven’t heard much about it since the…

looking forward to fall

It’s still been hot around these parts, per usual. But we are officially one week from the beginning of fall, and I’m looking forward to the new season. This morning was extremely gorgeous. Sunny and cool. Yesterday, it was foggy and when it burned off, it was hot. I was volunteering with work, and I…

summer is here

I don’t know why people get so surprised. Summertime heat always hits San Diego in August & September. It’s hot, humid, and heavy. Thunderclouds billow and threaten but never come through. I am beyond excited because tomorrow my sister comes to visit. Last year at this time, I went to visit her in Salt Lake…

thoughts on beauty

There are a few things that have come up this week that have got me thinking about beauty and the concept of beauty. First, Marion Bartoli winning Wimbledon. I was glad for her, and I welled up when she climbed up to her box to hug her team, and especially her dad. She is short,…

Weekend over

Fleetwood Mac gave an incredible performance. Some of my favorites of the night were Sara, Lookin Out For Love, and Silver Springs. They also talked a lot & told some great stories. It was awesome to see them. I almost got a shirt but the $45 price tag made me pass. Here’s a link to…

another Friday night

And I’m at home plugging away at that list that keeps growing even though I’m checking things off. Dinner last night was good (sausages with peppers & onions with tater tots), but man, did having the oven on make it super hot! Hopefully we’ll get a new barbecue soon so we can take the cooking…

Changes at work

I don’t write about work hardly at all, but today it was announced that I had a new manager. It’s all good. The former one is going to head up a new area of marketing & the guy who got promoted is someone I work well with. Should be exciting. Otherwise, came home & worked…

Busy Saturday

Today has been full of tasks. I went to acupuncture, did some finances, answered emails, did some laundry, nothing crazy. Watched Serena win the French Open against Maria Sharapova. It was a great match. I like both players so I would have been happy for either of them. The men’s final tomorrow is an all…

feeling it a bit more

Today was better than yesterday. I had to suck it up a bit at work, which is fine, I can do that. I left a bit early because I was helping out Han & D with some shuttling. D’s school is over next week. She’ll be going to a new school in the fall for…

Easy like…

Sunday morning. Made breakfast (sausage patties, cinnamon rolls, scrambled eggs). Started laundry. Took a shower. Watched some French Open. Did some of the things on my to-do list (not all of them). In other parts of San Diego, runners ran through the streets, fulfilling personal dreams and accomplishing big goals. The Rock ‘n’ Roll marathon….
