Adam's parents are visiting this week, thus commencing a five week visitor season. In 37 days, there will be a total of 4 nights where we don't have visitors. Other people might consider this high level of traffic a little overwhelming. Those other people have likely had more than 4 in-person conversations with not-their-husband in the last 80 days.
I wonder what would happen if I ever decorated my house without a visitor/party/youareabouttohaveababy deadline. For the last 15 years, there has always been some event about a month or two after move in that has ended up dictating the decor of my house for the next 1-3 years. Or until the apartment catches on fire, whichever happens first. So, that has been what I have been up to lately.
In the meanwhile I had a birthday. We went to Yosemite for the weekend and it was perhaps the most beautiful thing that has ever happened to me. I had a grand plan of coming up with 32 wishes for this year, but instead I came up with five:
1. Get a job that is mostly enjoyable
2. Go a whole week without crying
3. Make a new friend
4. Hug my old friends until they beg me to stop
5. Buy a leather jacket
We will see how that all goes.
