Yah, hi! Whatcha doing?
My desktop is broken or something, which, ok, sure. I mean, it hasn't been broken for the whole time since I've returned from San Juan, but I don't know.
San Juan was really great, like a vacation inside of a vacation what with all the lazing around the ballpark every day in addition to the regular kind of vacationing nothingness. It seems like it was six months ago, that vacation, which is fine because upon our return it felt like we had been away for six months, also.
Last weekend we had a dumb girl drive right into our car, right into the front wheel well on the passenger side -- the front suspension or whatever is trashed, the car is being competently reconstructed by the Russians, but in the meantime, I don't have a car, which is kind of annoying, but frees me up to not go anywhere except essential places, which is great.
Then the week ending now (the one without the car, not to be confused with the one upcoming, also car-free), Garcon was gone to DC overnight with Sal & Mari for a dentist's appointment ( a child who can ride the NE Regional alone) and that was canceled due to "weather," so he was down for two nights -- relaxing.
The next day I went down & back for my own cleaning (heroic attentions in the office; had lunch with Mari) & then with one foot in the door that night accepted an invitation from Fox to have a glass of wine with him & his pretty girlfriend.
I finally turned on the central heat because -- honestly, because the woman who cleans our house was coming & honestly it was pretty cold in the corridors where she would be cleaning, and I didn't want a report made against me with OSHA. It was pretty warm & now it is warmer outside, so who knows what will happen. I can't see us going crazy & leaving it like this for the next three weeks, but it is novel to not be able to see your breath in the first-floor half-bath, ahahaha!
The house is a complete wreck in 2015 bc travel to a dress-up event, Fifille traveling to Cali, then my trip to SJ, then all this dental touring in day trips. The "weather" creates chaos which spills over into our tidy, weatherproofed lives. But it is enough now. I am home for the next few weekends and then I probably have to go down to DC to fulfill my chatelaine duties there.
I am in a fish phase where fish us less repellent than usual & idk. Will catch up, but it could be bc Mari asked, "Do you eat anything but lamb chops & winter squash anymore?" And all I could say was "Well, lentils. And kale!"
OMFG, & green powder in earnest but then after a couple of weeks of that it occurred to me: this is whence the headaches & puffy eyes omg wtf.
My Lenten action this year is inarticulate (just like this writing!) but I know when I am deviating. Let us see what is possible when I deprive myself of the habitual, again. So far, so good xoxx.
