My friend at work saw that I'm having a rough time and bought me a really nice piece of chocolate cake to cheer me up.

I have a best thing! I am getting a hot tub! It is used and the wooden casing part is all destroyed, which is fine for us since my husband is handy and our next door neighbour is a carpenter and we will probably just drop it right into our pool deck. I am pretty stoked since my Drs are always telling me I would benefit from warm water therapy. Mmmm.

JELLY OF YOUR HOT TUB. That's a life goal for sure!

My day has been good so far! My friend (and actually someone I used to sleep with) and I haven't hung out in quite a while and we talked a bit ago about hanging out one day soon with the kid he nanny's for. So today I went strawberry picking and sat on a little beach with him and an ADORABLE two year old. She was quite taken with me it seems, too. It was so amazing. She even told me she loved me a bunch of times! There was much hand-holding and hugging. It was so sweet.

Realizing that I get to be in a new place soon! I didn't realize how ready for a new scene (any new scene) I was until now. I mean, moving is going to be a pain and I'll miss some folks but NEW PLACES!!! Ive been in maine for the longest ive been anywhere and i think it was beginning to feel trapped-ish Itchy feet blues no longer bringing me down.

Sunshine. Also, mom encouraging me to chant for an hour every morning in Sanskrit. (I do it on my own, but thought she'd hate it since the thing I chant isn't from her tradition. Surprise! She likes it anyway.)

Everyone was so welcoming on my first day back at my old job. It was so nice to be missed.

I accepted a new job that I think might be awesome. The pay is better than I expected, there are some good perks, and I met with the owners tonight and they treated me like a smart, autonomous adult who can make good decisions. That sounds like not much, but for background, I worked in a field where that was pretty much assumed for almost 10 years, left that field so I could have a life, but worked shitty jobs where they treat you like a toddler for the past three-ish years. This should be so much better.

Smoothie, !!!! That's so awesome! Félicitations!

My best thing is that I've conquered four of my fears (by necessity, and over the last month), and my anxiety has become completely manageable. Still there, but definitely manageable. Yay.

We picked dates for a trip to Seattle in July! One step closer to making this move happen. Also, I think we're thinking Seattle.

Jenny Owen Youngs came out publicly today. Then I fainted, then I listened to all of her songs. Then I felt happy all day.

Coconut ice cream on the porch with grandma. Grandma's first non-dairy ice cream (she liked it!) and a bunch of golfers went past, so I got to throw some of our collection of lost golf balls onto the green to confuse them. (Grandma was like, "No, don't do that!" and then laughed like a little girl when they were confused. Pretty sure it's the first time I've really enjoyed her company since coming home; everything else has been workworkworktearswork. I had to bully her into leaving her room, but it was totally worth it. She hadn't been outside in about a year (!).

Second best thing: Mom's working from home 3 days next week, which means my sister and I can have a short camping adventure together before I go!

I realized I can sleep on the bus to/from work and I am really proud of my "multitasking". heh. I feel like I just gained 2 hours of my life back and I get to work feeling refreshed instead of exhausted.

My elderly cat taking a voluminous poop at last. I've been worried about him all week and have not sleeping well from anxiety the past couple of days as I feel he's starting to turn the final corner in his life (he's 19) and I think he's going blind and was meowing like he was in some pain around his litterbox earlier this week and wasn't pooping much--so I gave him some lactulose over the last couple of days and the pained meowing has died down and he seems more comfortable and had a nice poop just a short time ago, so, whew!

I'm so glad your kitty had a good poop. Hooray! I know I'd worry if it were one of our girls. Your post has made me happy. :)

Last real pre-race workout completed! Tomorrow is an off day, Saturday is a quick dip in the lake and a quick run through my bike gears, and then Sunday hopefully I pull all this work together into a successful half-Ironman!

Thanks! Earlier this week, I was pretty much despairing that maybe I'd have to take him to the vet and then worried that things might come to a tough decision because he's just at an age where stuff is getting too hard to bounce back from but I feel he's doing better--at least today and yesterday he seemed better too--and it seems I'm not going to have to make any tough choices so soon. Reprieve! For the time being!

I'm happy about everyone's happy stuff!

Good luck on the half-Ironman, mtoes!!! My sister's starting training for a mini-triathalon in August.

Yay! I hope she loves it! (I hated my first triathlon and said I would never do another one, but this will be my 12th. I'm still not entirely sure how that happened. :D)
