Family May 2012


  • I did have a lovely and relaxing shabbos despite being somewhat rushed, a tiny bit stressed, and a lot distracted Friday afternoon.
  • Today has been relatively productive. This is a good thing. Whoo hoo. I wish I'd gotten a little more work done, but all in all, I got a large number of things done.
  • We went to lunch with Jason and Leah who are visiting from Los Angeles. It was great to see them and fantastic to finally see their little one, Max.
  • After lunch, I dropped Seth off at work, and then stopped at the women's gym I found nearby and joined. Hopefully I'll actually go. Now I have to go buy workout clothes. I own ONE pair of sweatpants. It's not going to be easy to go to the gym in a floor-length skirt.
  • After the gym, I came home, spent some time working, talked with my mother, with Bea and various assorted folks.
  • Then I prepared and cooked the standing rib roasts that I had intended to prepare Friday night but hadn't been able to do because of my bad car karma.
  • While the roasts were cooking, I did some more work on the journal and relaxed a teeney bit.
  • I hate the journal.
  • I took one of the roasts to Jon and Laura and chilled with the kid and watched a little of the football game.
  • Speaking of the football game, did I mention that New England is going to the SuperBowl? :-)
  • After leaving Jon and Laura's, I came home, did a little bit more work and talked to Bea for about the 7th time today. Then I went to pick Seth up from work.
  • While on my way to pick Seth up, I heard a version of "Everlasting Love" by U2. Pretty amusing. I think I must have it. That, and Cake's version of "I Will Survive". I will acquire these via iTunes, I believe. Yay for iTunes. Or I might just buy the albums. But I can use iTunes to research what I need to get. Yay for iTunes. :)
  • Having picked Seth up and arrived back at home, all the while continuing to prove that I have bad car karma right now, we are relaxing a bit. Seth is catching up on "Enterprise" and I'm procrastinating getting more journal work done. Sigh.
  • Tomorrow has more journal stuff in store for me, in addition to a trip to pick up my rental car for while my car is in the shop thanks to my continued bad car karma. Suffice it to say, I will be getting the extra insurance from Enterprise. Then after that, we'll go to a bookstore for a browse and then maybe back over to Jon and Laura's for more chillin' with the kid. Yeah, they're cool too, but really, I just go to hang out with the kid. :-D
