July. [Friday, Jul. 9th, 2010|03:11 pm]
The richest girl in town.
I'm not convinced I can write anything particularly eloquent or even coherent right now. I'm tired, I want to go home, and I still have at least another couple of hours here in the office.

Things that have happened recently:

- Went to New York for a few days, stayed with friends in Brooklyn, had a fabulous time.
- Have gotten all ginned up to MOVE to New York again, but this time... it looks like it could maybe happen while keeping this job--which I could do from home there, also sparing myself some of the early mornings since so many of my clients are on the east coast to begin with.
- Worked through some difficult things with J and emerged feeling... better. Honest. Relieved. Hopeful.
- Got a wedding dress.
- Worked on my manuscript and have a solid 30 pages with another 20-30 to continue editing/ordering.
- Cried listening to sirens last night in downtown Oakland.
- Told my uncle to get out of my mother's apartment.
- Almost immediately upon writing my father off for "the last time," received a belated-birthday message from him on Facebook.
- I got older.

Weekend, plz. Also, less cold, windy, foggy weather, plz. And thank you.

Good Lord. The month has barely begun!

I hope you can move to NYC, so I can, vicariously. I regret leaving every time I go there. I didn't realize that you'd lived there; I always think of you as an Oakland girl, and of course I've been thinking of you these past two days with enormous sadness.

I hope your weekend is a peaceful and relaxing time.

And, I've been offline for so long, or at least not checking blogs, that I had no idea you were getting married. Mazel tov!

Wedding dress - WOOHOO! Very exciting :)
Moving to New York - wow. I've never been, will have to visit - where in New York would you want to live, Brooklyn? Would love to hear about it, what you like about it.
The sirens/chaos made me really sad, too. I've actually never seen anything like that.

Happy Birthday. I'm excited to see you later, think you're great.

just reading this now.
I'd love to hear more about NY, see the dress, hear about the manuscript (wait, what?), all of it, really.
We catch up soon, yes?
Miss you.

That's a lot of stuff for a short amount of month so far.
