Three weeks from today …

… I will be on a plane, going to San Francisco. I’ve wanted to visit SF for a long time b/c I’ve heard that it’s a very cool city. Little did I know, that I’ve actually been there before. I was aware that my family took an extensive trip from Montana and Washington State and drove all the way down to southern California (this was when my parents almost lost me in the Pacific Ocean) to visit family, but I didn’t realize we had stopped in San Francisco. Obviously, I don’t remember much prior to the age of two years, so I think it’s time to go back. I’m excited to see Chinatown, Fisherman’s Wharf, and of course the Golden Gate Bridge, among other sites, while enjoying some great cuisine. I’m glad to have something to look forward to! The other thing is … I’m going to SF with John, who happens to be my ___friend. It’s still hard for me to say and even think about, but it’s true. That –friend word hangs me up b/c it’s so not normal to use it about myself. Yes, I know I’m a freak. But hey, I’m a freak and I accept it. It makes me unique (once in awhile I can be positive). Yea for a break from Ohio and a fabulous trip to San Francisco!

What a busy week. I didn’t realize how busy it had been until this morning though. Somehow, I got into a mood last night and wasn’t even sure what it came from. It wasn’t necessarily that I was mad or upset or anything. Just not feeling myself. I tried so hard to stay awake for Lifehouse, John was nice enough to record it in case I was asleep. This morning, I felt bad for being so crappy last night and I started thinking about what could have put me in that mood. I think I finally figured it out! This week, I’ve had something every night, dinner and bike ride with John, Cheesecake Factory with the interns, clean up night at work (where I involuntarily lost half my desk space and practically got demoted to intern), and then Thursday thing at our house all equal to me having only about one hour to myself for the whole week. I need more alone time than that! It’s been hard for me to try and force myself to fit in real activities that aren’t work related. Obviously, I still haven’t figured out how to squeeze in enough alone time with all the other stuff. Has anyone mastered this feat? It probably doesn’t help that I require a lot of alone time (I sometimes can’t even count working out as alone time). Apparently, if I don’t get that time, I get annoyed with everything around me.

Lifehouse is on Jay Leno tonight!!! That's approximately 11:35PM EST on NBC for those of you who don't already know. Their new album was released one week earlier than originally announced. It is in stores now ... I can't buy it yet b/c I haven't met a personal goal. :-( I want to hear and learn the new songs very badly, especially after the teaser at the last concert. I know there are several good tunes, I will inevitably end up liking them all! But only because Lifehouse is the best band ever. Check it out today.

Nothing too exciting is going on in my life. Some crises at work that are annoying. I was home last weekend and slept. A lot. I didn’t leave the house for two and a half days. I closed a bank account on Friday. I went out to lunch with the parents on Saturday and came home for a surprise baby shower. The baby shower ended up being a lot of fun. And I’m excited for the nameless baby boy! Six weeks to go!

In other news, I took Tally to the vet yesterday. She has bacteria in her urine and has to take antibiotics for three weeks. I get to shove a pill down her throat and make her swallow it. Actually, it wasn’t too bad last night. I hope that if she is feeling bad that it helps her, obviously. Also, I found out that contrary to popular belief (my mom and sister) Tally is actually underweight for her size; they call her “heifer” more often than necessary. And by more often than necessary, I mean ALL THE TIME, when she is a fit and trim kitty.
