Rich and I celebrated our Sixth Anniversary yesterday. We went out to lunch at Buca de Beppo (thanks Mom and Dad). Mozzarella Garlic Bread, Caesar Salad, Chicken Parmesan, Fettuccine Alfredo and Tiramasu. Then we saw The Expendables on an Ultra Screen. It was a pretty straight forward action movie, lots of big names, good fun. We had Papa Murphy’s BBQ Chicken Pizza and Cookie Dough for dinner and spent the evening watching Leverage. I’ve always been a fan of heist movies, and I loved the A-Team. Leverage is a combination of both in the modern world, going after corporations. It makes me happy. We had a good day together, and many more days and years to come.

My nieces turned one and three this week. The party was last Saturday. A house full of family – eight kids running around buzzed on sugar and the adults just trying to keep up. The kids were all fairly well behaved – the crawl tunnel the only cause of difficulty, really. A good day to relax and eat cake and catch up with everyone. Spent Sunday morning and afternoon with my parents. It was good to see them and catch up. Food, a movie and some shopping. It was good to see and spend time with them. I wish we could go visit Them more. Miss my in-laws, too, it’s been quite a while since we’ve seen them.

The rest of the weekend was spent with friends, as usual. Life is difficult sometimes, but having so many good friends makes it all so much easier to deal with. I haven’t seen Erika and Kalyn in way too long, but I get to talk to them fairly regularly, too.

I am so lucky to have such loving and supportive family and friends.

So, all these ideas floating in my head. All these ideas flowing out onto my blog, or in my journals. Business ideas, product ideas, website ideas, writing ideas, education ideas, financial ideas. But idea alone don’t get me anywhere. I need to make plans, decide on steps, break them down into manageable bits instead of grandiose ideas that intimidate me just to look at them. Whenever a phrase comes to mind about time, in this case: time is at a premium, another quote comes to mind: Time is the Fire in which we Burn – from Star Trek Generations, the villian Soran, referencing a poem by Delmore Schwartz. I am so busy already, that I trying to make the time for new things is often overwhelming.

Rich gave me a career change suggestion the other night that I am considering looking into. Retail is not what I want to do with my life, but I do love books and stability. I just don’t know if it is a feasible move given my schedule and per hour requirements. It could be, though.  Mike asked me about working for him “full time.” We are still negotiating what that means and the pros and cons of it.

Health was a bit rocky the last few weeks, my shoulders were complaining loudly and constantly, so I ended up on a Prednisone burst to calm them down. Back off it now, and feeling better, but not 100% yet. Got a few mosquito bites last night, but given it’s August, I was probably due.

Made spelt bread this week, just finished it up today. It’s thick and heavy, but with a bit of garlic and oregano, it’s fairly tasty. Pondering a cheese-less spelt pizza in my near future, with spinach and broccoli. Had one from whole wheat the other day at Whole World and it was very good. Probably doing sweet potato, asparagus and broccoli for dinner tonight.

Life is good.

Cedar Point August 5, 2010

After an exciting birthday week last week, not much to post about this week. Went to Cedar Point on Monday as a late birthday gift and post-bar celebration. It was a very busy Monday, even the 9am hour was busy, though even more so due to only one ride being open and it breaking at about 930. But we had a blast. It was warm and sunny, but Aquafina bottles were plentiful. As was salad for lunch and dinner. There was a bit of chocolate covered frozen banana and a bit too much cotton candy, but overall, I stayed fairly healthy.

Got to ride all the most of the coasters, with some decent, but not overwhelming waits for most. Maverick, Mean Streak, Mine Ride, Millennium, Magnum, Gemini, Disaster Transport, Corkscrew, Raptor, Wicked Twister, Top Thrill Dragster. Not many of the auxiliary rides this trip. We did Bumper Cars, Airhawk and Max Air. Rachel took the bullet and rode the Witch’s Wheel. Mostly we were running between coasters. We did take a break out to watch Everybody Loves Snoopy in the air conditioned skating rink theatre.

It was a good, exhausting day. With fireworks to keep us entertained in our final line.

Life itself marches on. Bills come in. Money goes out. Plans get made. And everything will work out fine. 🙂
