Longest shortest week. [Friday, Jan. 6th, 2017|05:10 pm]
The richest girl in town.
This week felt a lot longer than four days. I'm sneaking out of the office in a few minutes to grab a drink with a friend before I head back to the east bay. I guess it's work, about which I could not feel more ambivalent these days, and also my back went out last Friday and only stopped being miserable today. Anyhow, I'm glad to have a couple days off again, even if I'll spend them indoors since some sort of ridiculous storm is aimed at the Bay Area right now. (I'm not complaining; we need the rain. But a stir-crazy toddler who can't go the playground is a challenge.)

It's funny how as much as I feel "out of practice" writing here, once I get going, so much of it feels like home. I know there's the latest fear about what will happen with the servers based in Russia, and perhaps I should reconsider Dreamwidth (I do have an account; I just never used it), but for now, LJ is giving my heart something it needs--a place that feels like less artifice.

How is Mr. P? I was going through my phone the other day to delete some old/useless photos and came across the few I took of him in Alameda.

I had not heard about concerns over servers in Russia, so that freaks me out a little bit. Hope your back holds up during Rainy Toddlerfest 2017.

It's easier to be both more substantial and more mundane, I think.

Oh, for the age when you can say to P "here's a book. Go read." ;)

yay for rain, boo for no playground

Blanket fort? I remember also many hours of indoor hide and seek.

I'm glad you are here.

I think we have toddlers near the same age. Our wear the little bugger out tactic for too wet for playgrounds weekends is usually either the Oakland Museum or the big indoor mausoleum at Mountain View Cemetery. The latter isn't his favorite, but it has stairs to practice on and long dry halls to run in (as well as a bathroom).

Next time we end up having such a wet weekend day, want me to drop you an invite for a playdate?
