King Neptune is My Drinking Buddy


I had today off, so sleeping in until 8am meant coffee and then brunch – which was just last night’s dinner reheated.  Beans, rice, and lettuce.  Good stuff!

I had hummus and veggies for lunch, and haven’t actually had dinner yet.  Since it’s 7pm, I probably won’t.  Don’t judge.  I’m working on the food thing slowly.  In my defense, I ordered an appetizer, but it was awful so I didn’t eat it.


Had a nice run today and more pool cleaning.  That’s becoming my arm workout!


So today I was off because we were supposed to have a big team meeting at a food and wine fest.  It got canceled due to weather, which is a bummer because it actually didn’t rain, was in the 70’s, and would have been totally perfect for such an event!  Alas, it didn’t happen, and since my calendar was blocked, decided to still take the day.

So, I did housework, hung with R as she binge watched Arrow with Kuma, made weekend plans to have a bunch of friends stay with me, ran, and took a shower.  Then off to run errands.

A big part of that was losing a chunk of my life at the Social Security Administration.  My court order name change came through (not the divorce itself – that takes a bloody year in VA – but I did petition for a name change now).  Anyway, I ended up not having the right certified document, so there’s 2+ hours I won’t get back.  That meant I couldn’t go to the DMV, so I gave up, went to the Oceanfront, read for a bit, hung out with King Neptune and then a co-worker for some happy hour.

And now – home, cleaning, blogging, and relaxing before heading back to work tomorrow!

Later gators!
