piles and piles.
I am packing up my winter stuff and bringing out my summer/spring stuff from last year in hopes that this single act will keep the weather warm here. I am now lying on a pile of clothes that I do NOT want to put away. Life would be so much easier with a walk-in closet.
day 340 :: errands and more errands
Yawn. I am groggy today. I need to go for a run. Last night I was hoping to stay home and relax but then my friend Justin came back into town from Georgetown (where he is getting his MBA, did I mention this already? See I’m so out of it, I can’t even remember what I wrote). So anyways, we ended up out in the West Village—-Extra Virgin (who knew they had such great mojitos, good...

day 341: highs and lows.
Today started fabulously well…I slept in and got more sleep than I needed which is helping to heal my allergies that are currently attacking my immune system and making it hard for me to breathe and giving me the sniffles. I stepped outside to take Elle on a long walk in sunny but semi-cold weather and got a call from Carlos who was at the airport in Honolulu, flying to New Orleans after a...
The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not...– Thomas Merton, Trappist Monk, Our Lady of Gethsemani Abbey
I’m all sniffles today and I just got an alert from weather.com “there is a high pollen alert in your area” ya think? why couldn’t you have told me that like a week ago so I could have stock piled the zyrtec and avoided this sniffle shindig? sigh. so last night was utter maddness and whatever i wrote on here, forgive me, i was intoxicated and i’m sure it didn’t...
We are more closely connected to the invisible than to the visible.– Novalis, German poet, birthday quote o’the day. I love this.

friend: you’re catching on.
