here I go again

another week zipped past, just like that.

I have an Iphone these days, with which I e-mail (loaded with typos) and check facebook, so that I make it down to the basement office, to use this computer less and less often.

This week was busy, so busy I had a hard time remembering what day it was and where I was supposed to be.

Maxwell had an orthodontist appointment, and I had a training in the evening at work, and it SNOWED on Thursday.

Who would have thought of snow in March in Portland?

Not me.

I had the great, good fortune to be invited to a party to celebrate the book release of my friend Cheryl's new memoir, Wild on Wednesday.

Since I rarely go out and since I rarely know people that have books coming out in a big way, books mentioned as top picks in both Entertainment Weekly & People, as well as more literary circles, I was pretty excited.

So out into the cold I went with my friend Lisa, who was generous enough to pick me up, since I hate driving at night.  My vision is just atrocious and I haven't seen hide nor hair of my glasses in years.  I try not to drive at all at night if I can avoid it.

The reading was packed and we spent the party huddled together in a corner, but it was nice to be out and to share someone's  much deserved success.

When we walked out to the bar at 10:45 snow was falling.  School was two hours late the next day, and I was a little stressed out, but I muddled through.
