  2. Biked in and out of town to write at Joyist.
  3. While there, had my Greg blend; GF zucchini bread, toasted, w avocado; and 2 small PB cups sweetened w maple syrup. Gee, I see an avocado theme here now. ;)
  4. Ate a few of the Brussels sprouts Dan made for dinner, plus baked sweet potato.
  5. Have been listening to my favorite songs while working in my office since 5 p.m., with break for dinner.

Tired, Must Sleep 

We cleaned some clutter and I found not one, not two, but three tiny white jars of Kiehl’s avocado eye cream on my dresser. It’s very pale green and pampering. It’s also pricey--so now I know I won’t have to invest in that in a while. If only owning it would magically moisturize--if a beauty elf could untwist the lid, dip a dainty fingertip in, gently pat the cream around my eyes. I’m too lazy or tired to take the extra step. But I want to change.

Change is possible.

Good Night, Saturday 

  • Can’t find reading glasses, pls forgive typos.
  • Made Lemon Pancakes from Joy of Cooking for sleepover breakfast.[Lots of fudges to wash.]
  • Got to part of my support group.
  • Kids said they wanted bacon and did not eat one slice. Sug and I were up to the task.
  • Super cold at 4 pm soccer game. But Punch scored a goal and was proud..
  • Sis and Chaiya cane from CT to watch game, have dinner out, cake at home for Chaiya’s bday.
  • We are all tired now, Punch, Dan, Sug and me. But Figgy is studying organic chemistry, has been for hours,, and then going out. Remember being young and going out late at night? Such a different level of energy.

Good nite. Sinking to sleep.

2 Out of 3 Ain’t Bad

Punch’s friends, L. and her younger brother, M., are sleeping over. They picked the fifth Harry Potter movie to watch. Punch and M. fell sound asleep. L. is still watching but I might have to pull the plug, since they’re in the living room and I’m now upstairs. Good night to you.

Shoulder Wings Tired, Must Sleep

Biked into town to work but back at my desk in my office tonight, where I enjoy listening out loud to my Spotify playlist on my laptop. Can’t do that in a coffee shop or juice bar. Long live "The Beat Goes On" by Sonny & Cher; "At the Zoo" by Simon & Garfunkel; and "This Moment" by The Incredible String Band. Good night to you.
