Sunday 9:06 am, and I've been up since crackodawn, as Santana woke me up to take her out to tinkle. Good dog. Better than peeing on the rug. Bad dog.
Yesterday we went to watch my cousin race at Laguna Seca. Although I grew up within a few miles of LS, I had never been there before, so it was a lot of fun. Of course, it resulted in a bad food day, but...
I worked tons of hours this week, and got a lot of work done. The tension in the office is 6/10, which is an improvement on the 8/10 that it was the week before.
My childhood friend, Barb, is visiting late this afternoon. I haven't seen her in at least 20 years, and am looking forward to it. Gotta clean house.
I FINALLY finished the books that were bogging me down. Blind Assassin, by Margaret Atwood (whom I love), ended up being really good. Fingersmith, by Sarah Waters, ended up as it started -- ponderous and with totally unlikable characters. I love Victorian novels -- not this one. The writing was actually good, but the story was convoluted even by genre standards. Glad to be done and on to something fun. Nope, I have no interest in seeing the play next year.
I (surprisingly) got a bronze Spark Tracker medal this week, in spite of losing Sparky for most of a day and forgetting to put him back on before we went out one night this week. Bodes well for my overall activity.
Now to get the food under control...too many events out.
Have a wonderful week, everyone -- xoxoxo
