Things that happened since Friday

I published my book. 🙂

I went on a $20 date after dinner with my husband where we watched the sunset over Bodega Bay from the comfort of one of our favorite restaurants. It was one of the best dates ever.

I read two whole books (one that was excellent, and one that I felt obligated to finish since I started it…and not worth mentioning…and may even have been unfairly judged since the first book was sooooo good). Thanks to my Kindle, I think I’m obsessed with reading. And I like it. (And tonight, I’m diving into my third book since Friday!)

I woke up at 5 a.m. every morning. Not on purpose.

I took my teenage dog for a 3-mile roundtrip walk to Starbucks, weighted down with a water bottle, my wallet, my Kindle, my iPhone, and two cans of refried beans for good measure in his doggy backpack. I had an iced coffee with soy milk, and we split a cheese plate. Then he slept for three hours straight when we got back home.

Don't be jealous of my dog's man parts.

I suffered three ugly burns on my arms and hands thanks to my natural clumsiness not exactly mixing with using a stove. But the stew I made was delicious (it had beer as a base!).

My laptop bit the dust. :-/ (I’m writing this on my husband’s computer)

I was still able to back up all my important files before it completely died. 🙂

I began writing my next book. In a wire notebook. (Look Ma, no Internet!) 😀

I took a momentary break from nixing grains and dairy from my diet. I just got tired of having to plan out all my meals and being so super diligent. And I now feel like crap, I’m totally bloated, and look like I’m 10 pounds heavier (I’m only 2 lbs up). What I really want is chocolate. But I gave dessert up for Lent. And I kind of feel like that’s one area that might not be that great to cheat on. So instead, I’m eating all the bread and cheese. All of it. (And I’m staring the cupcakes someone brought in to the office in the face. Why am I surrounded by delicious treats whenever I’m giving them up, but they’re nowhere to be found when I’m free to eat whatever???)

I ate a sandwich. With bread and cheese.

I cleaned the fridge. Then I cleaned the shower.

I discovered a new song crush.

I began saving $$$ for a new laptop.

What did you do?

  1. We’re in the midst of a bath remodel – not too thrilling. But I am thrilled that it has finally rained in California as I am a wildflower lover and plan to be hiking when it clears up!
