I took the boys to see the space shuttle Endeavour on Friday. I was supposed to go with Andrea and her family, but I got stuck in traffic and our tickets were timed. She had to go ahead but the CA Science Center was understanding and let me come in late. Traffic there and back sucked, but it was worth it to see a piece of history–not to mention Nico’s excited face. The space shuttle is huge!
I try to follow and read people who inspire me or push me to be better. Lisa Congdon is one of those people. I am so excited about–and impressed with–her latest project. She never ceases to inspire and motivate me.
I got a traffic ticket, my first one in almost a decade. The officer pulled me over once last year, but I was able to sweet-talk my way out of it. This time, not so much. It’s okay, because he could have written me up for 3 violations (none of them serious!); he only gave me one. I’ll take the ticket without complaint. I really did deserve it, and I was so grateful he went easy on me!
I started off the day overwhelmed but managed to get a bunch of stuff done. Then, the Mister called me late in the afternoon and said he wouldn’t be home for dinner. I’m sorry he had to work late, but I’m not at all sorry I didn’t have to worry about dinner. I tossed a box of Mac & Cheese down the boys’ throats and settled in for the night with a fluffy book. It was quite glorious.
I might stop blogging if I think about the amount of time and money I have spent trying to resolve the site’s hacking and connectivity issues. My site was down most of yesterday morning and has been online/offline for weeks. The latest solution offered to me will cost $75/month. I don’t even make $50 per month now that I am no longer with Federated Media, so my response was a guffaw followed by “no, thank you.” The opportunity with Old Navy happened at the last minute and could not have come at a better time. To think: one day I won’t be known for fixing broken pickles! Yes, I’m still selling drugs.
I watched the most amazing sunset from my front porch. Mikey said it looked like an explosion, and I had to agree.
Friday should be quiet. I hope the rest of the weekend is, too. The only thing I’m even contemplating is going on a long hike with the family if it doesn’t rain.
Have a happy, happy weekend, everyone!
