Went up to Monroe this past weekend to launch the sixth chapter of Fleet. It was a great party, even if the weather decided to be quite cold. Had a good time hanging out with old friends and making new ones. The pub we all went to dinner at was excellent and kept the food and drinks flowing. Though, next time, I think we might want to reserve the upstairs dining room.

Also got to drop by and see Eeks in Ypsi. She fed me lots of tea and tasty healthy food. We had roasted broccoli, peanut sauce covered kale, turmeric milk, and pizza with cauliflower and sweet potato toppings, among other things. As always, a great culinary adventure. She also let me watch Les Miserables while she finished her work for Monday. It was good, but it was not what I expected, so I need to see it again with revised expectations.

This weekend is MARcon downtown, so we’re throwing a fleet party tomorrow night. It will be a great time, and next year, we get to get off Easter weekend, as the con goes back to Mother’s Day weekend. Then, of course, is Easter Sunday. I was considering spending time with family, but then my boss asked/begged me to take a shift, so I’ll be working the evening at the store.

Hope everyone has a great Easter weekend! And Mom, Happy early Birthday!

Happy Birthday, Alyssa!

First day of spring here in Ohio, and it’s supposed to snow. Ah, Ohio… Oh well, enough change in my life right now as it is. But warmer would be better. 😉

Found a couple library jobs to apply for this week, thanks to the advice from several friends. I know temp and part time is the way to get your foot in the door, but it just is not financially feasible for me right now. So, I aim big.

A good weekend ahead for me. The Detroit ship is throwing their inaugural house party on Saturday. Then, on Sunday, I get to go visit my best friend Erika. Very excited to see her, and her family. It has been too long. And she might even make me eat more healthy things. 😉

Had a nice Sunday visiting my brother, sister in law and the kids. Played several card games and read some Ninjago to the belated birthday boy. We even took a walk to see a backhoe and rode bikes and played on the swings. A very nice day out, though still a little chilly for me.

Found a couple more copywriting jobs and a web job to apply to this week as well. Inventory this weekend at the store, so staying busy getting ready for that. Not going to make the fleet party this weekend, but two more the next two weeks will make up for that.

Spring soon, but still quite chilly this week. A bit of snow here and there as well, but nothing like the storm last week. Looking forward to warm.

This past weekend was really busy and fun. A coed baby shower for friends, with a game of who can diaper and dress the babydoll fastest, dad or mom? In which they tied. A lot of good food, even some tasty veggies. Then off to an Eddie Izzard marathon for excellent stand-up, movies and TV, with good food and good friends again. Sunday a Tea Party for a friend’s birthday, with lovely tea cakes and sandwiches. A very nice time was had by all. This coming weekend is full of work (forty hours scheduled this week), and visiting my brother’s family on Sunday.

Pain’s been a bit high this week, especially today. Lots of heavy boxes. Need more veggies, less sugar. Insurance cards on their way as well. My dentist really wants to see me… they’ve been calling for my six month appointment for about six months now.
