1) I only have 7 vacation days saved up--the trip would have wiped me out.
2) I'm not too crazy about flying these days--my anxiety disorder is acting up a bit
3) 100 degree temps and close to 100% humidity? Darlin' I love you, but give me San Francisco summer anytime (except when we go to Palm Springs, but it's a dry heat).
Friday evening was quiet. Saturday I did some chores. Dave stopped by on his bike for a drink and a chat. Later he called and I went out with him, Vic, Mel and Victor to the Connecticut Yankee, where I got a nice Caesar salad and a blue-cheese and bacon burger--very Atkins-friendly. Sunday our friend John came over for dinner; I planned to cook, but at the last minute we decided to go to Tower Burger, and I got a chicken Cobb salad that was also respectably carb-free.
I had trouble sleeping that night due to the many iced teas I had for dinner, so I dragged on Monday. Was quite productive, though. Tuesday (yesterday) was very productive, basically finishing all the work I had planned for the rest of the week in less than a day. Must be pent-up energy from not having Steve to work on. I was supposed to meet Jay, our friend and contractor who's going to replace our front door, but he postponed till Thursday. Dave called, and I went with him and the usual crowd (Vic, Mel, Victor, and Sammie, visiting D&V from Fresno) to the Metreon for dinner and to see Terminator 3. Dinner: OK. Movie:so-so; lots of action, not so much plot.
Steve called a little while ago from the road, driving back to Houston from Dallas. Tomorrow he's off to the reunion. Hope the bugs don't bite!!
