A Good Week

This has been quite the week.  First, on Wednesday I gave my first speech at Toastmasters.  It’s called the Icebreaker and it’s about yourself–so it should have been pretty easy because I usually have no problem talking about myself!  But the first draft was very personal and I scrapped it.  I toned down the second version but still felt nervous giving it.  However, it went very well and I already know the topic for my next speech.  At one point I mentioned, “My husband has gone from being a musician/janitor to swordmaker to making teeth.  There is a logical progression to that, but it’s a story for another time.”  A lot of people laughed and a couple mentioned that they would like to hear that story, so Leif gets to be the focus of my next speech.  It will be entitled “How to Become a Dental Lab Tech in 15 Years or Less!”

Then on Thursday I had one of my most productive days ever at work.  It was crazy, I kept getting stuff done.  Task after task kept getting checked off!  It was weird, because by the end of the day I was exhausted and I skipped my dance class, I was just so burned out.  But it felt good, like lifting a new heavy weight that you couldn’t do before.

On Saturday Nova and I went to the Farmer’s Market with Jessica and Amy and their babies Brianne and Daniel.  Three moms and three strollers.  They had their super nice running strollers and me, I had my cheap little umbrella stroller with the diaper bag backpack.  It worked out though–we went to Graze, which was super nice.  We had mimosas with breakfast.  Then I went home again and worked on another giant project.  I cleared out all of the piles and piles of clothes from upstairs and now the ones we will keep are in labelled bins  and I know which ones are ready for my next Goodwill trip.  It made quite a mess in the living room.

After that, Nova and I went back out to Jess’s for an impromptu slumber party.   There was much wine and talking.  It was just what I needed, and Nova did very well.

And now there are some kids crying, so I must go.

I write about life, people, and the things that interest in me. Which often includes death, sex, friendship, and the future of humanity. I hope for the best in people and I prepare for the worst. But no matter what happens, change is constant and everything will be ok.
