mom update

Mom called tonight, and she sounds like she’s doing well. I wore her out, talking too fast – I get like that sometimes – but it sounds like her energy’s improving, at least when she’s not talking to me. She’s back at work, and it’s tiring but not unmanageable, is my impression. I am relieved at a return to normality. She’s also going to send me a copy of the doctor’s report. Excellent idea.


the internet is an amazing thing

I suppose it doesn’t exactly make the weirdness possible, but it brings it to a much wider audience. Admit it, you are a better person know that you know about the Brick Testament.

I bought a bicycle today! Robert found it on ebay and I bid for it and we went to pick it up and I tested it by riding it to the train station. It looks like this:

And it works fine. I still have a thing or two to learn about gears, but all in all, I am very pleased. Now I can ride to the train station, which will make mornings and evenings less hectic, and ride to the gym, which really reduces the whole pain-in-the-butt aspect of gym-going, which in turn is the main reason why I haven’t been lately. I’m doing the Stressed Working Mom diet again, where I don’t have time to go to the gym, and I forget to eat because I’m so busy, so I’m losing both weight and muscle mass. Not good. Must get back on the wagon.
