It's been a month of celebration here!

My partner just had a milestone birthday, so lots of people visiting, lots of get togethers. I had 2 comp days at work for extra duties I had done this year, so I used those. We went to Disneyland for 3 days with my partner's best friend. We had a great time. Met some other friends like J&B there.

I've been doing yoga for the past 2-3 days because my partner's BFF was talking about it incessantly. She was showing me some moves, we were talking about flexibility, and realized I have none. I am just hoping it doesn't take forever for results, or I will be over it. I don't have the patience if I don't see it working.

Getting back on track with eating and not overeating. Trying to lose 5 pounds.

School is out soon!

Work has been pretty chill, which is appreciated. Spending all of my time in the classroom, working on modifying some assignments to help the kids understand them.

A coworker offered to write me a letter of recommendation, so I took her up on it. She was my old roommate, and a bit of a crazy lady, but that's ok. The letter was ok, but she offered to help me revamp my resume. It looks much better - easier to read, much more succinct. I've been applying to community college jobs to try to find something part time there.

Off topic

- George Pennachio seems to be doing a lot of hard news lately on channel 7 instead of just entertainment news. He was doing a news story on the 11pm and they didn't have an entertainment report that I saw that night.

Someone has some decency

Today is The Guy's birthday. I sent him a text wishing him a happy birthday for what it's worth. No reply, naturally.

The Guy's dog, a beautiful dog, who I knew from when he was young, and he only trusted me to pet sit him died recently of a brain tumor. We think that's what our dog had, but didn't go through with the treatment. Anyways, I have heard/discovered/received cards from friends who send cards when their pets die, so I sent one to The Guy. I got a nice Facebook message from The Guy's partner saying how touching the card was. At least someone has decency to reply. I appreciated a response from him. I just said our dog had experienced the same thing, and it was tough for us.

The good stuff

So... time to be all over...

- Officially have a fully funded emergency fund. Woo!
