365, 7: day 321

Los Angeles

After more than a month away (a familiar refrain!) I went to Runyon this morning! I’m becoming sort of a sunrise snob I guess, because I wanted more from this one! We began installing our first exhibit at work, which all went pretty smoothly, and then I got the sweetest, tiniest, shiest foster kitten delivered at the end of the day! The perfect way to kick off working all Labor Day weekend.

365, 7: day 320

Culver City

After a very stressful first few hours to the day, things started to turn around. I’d solved my biggest problems before lunch, which I actually ate today, and I solved the rest after, ending the work day feeling good. My friend and her dog met me for a run, postponed from yesterday, which was so nice. And I had a short, quiet, early night at home. Plus I’m getting another foster kitten tomorrow!

Los Angeles

Oof today was rough. There were several really frustrating moments at work, I skipped lunch and ate Cheezits and fruit snacks all day instead, and I don’t know that I can fix it all. But my husband hosted euchre tonight and I was handed a glass of wine and pizza when I walked in the door, and I spent the night in bed, with my wine, watching Don’t Hug Me, I’m Scared and Tim and Eric. Not the best way to deal with emotions but maybe okay once and a while?

Culver City

I’m back and it was all okay while I was gone, which makes sense but also is a relief. The morning was frantic but pretty smooth. Despite my fears that it would be hot and awful, it was actually a beautiful night and I went on a great (fast!) sunset run.

365, 7: day 317

Northport, MI

Today was a never-ending transit day, but made more enjoyable by some good company. After a rainy morning of goodbyes and then dropping one friend off at the airport in Traverse City, I got one of the best breakfast sandwiches I’ve ever had! And then we drove all day to Chicago, and then flew all night to LA. Whew. I’m exhausted but glad not to have gotten stuck anywhere at least. Plus things at work, which I had been worried about, all went smoothly, of course.

365, 7: day 316

Northport, MI

We added today as an extra day after our friend encouraged us to. I doubted that a little when people started leaving in the morning, but it actually turned out to be the best decision. We had a low-key (hungover) morning at our friend’s house at the beach, followed by a beautiful winery and more lakefront, grilling, friend time at night, including a fire and giggles, plus I got some QT with my friend’s parents, washing dishes away from the crowd. Why do I have to leave.

Northport, MI

First, I ran 10k this morning. I didn’t find the amazing water views I was hoping for, but it was slightly rainy and overcast and perfect running weather, and I was happy to get a nice long run in (well, I thought it was long until I found out someone else in our group ran 18 miles this morning?!). I spent the day with friends, doing a little exploring, seeing a lighthouse, beer tasting at a brewery, and running a few wedding errands. And then the wedding! That was perfect and wonderful and everything you want for one of your favorite people you’ve ever known.
