I am at the LT's house in Bremerton today, not only because it's cleaner than my own (in SPITE of me doing my dishes and cleaning the fridge!) and certainly not because his TV equals five of mine, maybe six (because I can't work it anyway) but because I came in late last night from California (again), picked up the Monster, and desperately needed a big hug, which he successfully provided. (Uh, the LT provided it, not Titan. Titan takes hugs well, but he lacks the appropriate muscles to really GIVE hugs.)


It's been an interesting week. A week ago today, I returned from California. Last night, I ALSO returned from California. (Deja vu! Trippy!) Monday, I unpacked a brand new office in a brand new building. Tuesday I wrote a presentation and joined a gym. (I WILL lose the winter pounds.) Wednesday I apparently lost my brain, as I arrived at an airport without my wallet OR ID. No word yet on my brain, but I did track down my wallet, although my ID remains in the wind. (Possibly it ran off with my brain.) Wednesday night I checked into a $1200/night hotel room and immediately called everyone I knew about it.

Thursday I presented to one of probably the top five physicists in the U.S., and I had a run in my pantyhose, but if he noticed, he was far too polite to say anything. (Relax, mom, it was under my skirt.) (Um. I mean. It was HIDDEN under my skirt unless I sat down.)


Today, Friday, I am working on my day off, but it's not too bad. I am relaxing and thinking of all the ways I can spend money this weekend, and that will certainly include new underwear--treat your girls right and they'll treat YOU right!--and possibly new jeans, because there is a Warehouse Sale, ladies, and I am SO GOING.

Additional things I need: this robot vacuum. If I won the lottery, this is the first thing I would buy.

1. Welcome back!

2. Until your organizational issues cost you BIG money, I wouldn't worry too much about it.

3. A Roomba for pet owners? I simply MUST have one. Oh, wait. My organizational issues DO cost me big money and now I can't afford it.

I'm going to go cry now.

Wow, and I thought I was busy! I think we might have ended up in SoCal on the same weekend? Glad all that crazy with the airport, wallet, moving your office, presentation, conference, etc. etc. and everything worked out. You must be charmed or something :)

I call my dog the Monster too! :-)

Shan--charmed is not the word. There's a post coming up about a certain gas stove. Be forewarned.

Anna S.--hi, sweetie! You always HAVE been good with animals. :)

Julie--as you and I both know, improvement is always possible!
