I’m slacking today and don’t have much to say.
It’s my husband’s birthday.
I read in Healdsburg last night with Lauren Becker and Stefanie Freele at the Healdsburg Literary Cafe and thoroughly enjoyed myself.
My husband and I stayed over in Healdsburg last night, slept-in, lounged by the pool, and went wine-tasting. We’re back in the city and soon our family is going to get together with friends for dinner, cake and poker. Life is good, friends.
I’ve never been busier with an impossible ‘to-do’ list and yet I’m slacking. It’s the right thing for me to do right now. I’m finding the fun again, had gone so long without fun I’d forgotten I’d ever lost it. For too long, I wore myself inside-out.
Some Housekeeping here though before I don a disguise, bite down on a cigar, and buy stacks of poker chips:
