Is It Really Summer? Because It Feels More Like November. Maybe December.

I spent the weekend in San Francisco freezing my ass off, because although I have LIVED in the Bay Area and spent much time in The City, I forgot to bring my coat when I left Denver last week because it was EIGHTY DEGREES. Surely, I thought, the sweatshirt I packed would be enough. I was… incorrect. So I spent the weekend borrowing vests, coats, scarves, and wraps from various friends, and feeling ridiculously unprepared.

But otherwise the weekend was fun. I saw high school friends, college friends, and my brother and sister-in-law. I ate a ton of good food, and didn’t drink nearly enough wine, and only lamented that fact a little bit, since I was so busy stuffing my face with more fresh strawberries. One of my best girlfriends from high school got married at a gorgeous venue amongst the redwoods in Los Gatos. She’s now in Jamaica at the exact same resort I was at just a year ago. I nearly cried in jealousy. Then I ate more strawberries.

This week The Funasaurus is gone, playing volleyball in Minnesota because, why not? I will spend the week doing laundry, going out with friends, and repacking so that I have time to pick The Funasaurus up from the airport on Saturday night in time to have him turn around and take me back to the airport on Sunday morning to fly out again. That should give us just enough time to be like, oh yeah, you’re cute. We should hang out sometime. Maybe when I get back the following week.

Now I’m stuck trying to meal plan for myself. It’s a pain to cook for just one person. The meal plan may include a lot of Chipotle. Any other suggestions?

Sushi is great, with someone else alone. And pizza. And cake and cookies.

I never ever get to eat alone, and I am very jealous.

When we were in MN for the wedding this weekend, there were tons of volleyball teams staying in our hotel and it made me think of D!

I think we might move J's graduation party to the 6th because we were too disorganized for this next weekend. Will you guys be back?

And there is nothing wrong with a little, er, a lot of Chipotle :D Yum!

I'll take some of that cold now, since the house is currently 80 degrees. At 8:30 at night. As for dinner, I always eat pasta or microwave soup. Or pancakes. But that's just me.

I'm a big fan of cereal. And cheese and crackers. I'm a real health nut, as you can probably tell...
