In a word, great! I actually feel well-rested this morning, like a whole new person. This past weekend I was really able to spend some time “filling my well” and recharging my batteries, by hanging out with friends, seeing a movie and catching up on some reading.
It also helps TREMENDOUSLY that that I’ve been sleeping a little better than usual over the past few days. I got in 10 glorious hours Saturday night, and hark! — the herald angels were singing!
- Have you ever attended a music festival?
Small ones, yes, but not none of the really big or famous ones. Some of the local radio stations organize small ones in Golden Gate Park, and I’ve been to a few of those.
I love music, but I’m not a big concert goer. I’m just not into huge crowds…or Porta-Potties.
I do enjoy watching concerts on my TV from the comfort of my living room couch, though. I can sit down, take bathroom breaks whenever I need to, and can even pause the show to take Tabs out for a walk, LOL!
- What’s a fantastically great hair day like for you?
Ah, an elusive creature… On my best hair days, my side-swept bangs lay perfectly flat. Sometimes they like to puff out in odd places, so there’s none of that. And my shoulder-length waves can best be described as “beachy.” Voluminous, but not messy.
- Describe a perfect date for you:
I’m easy. I love taking day trips up to Napa with El Hub, so a perfect date would involve us driving up early on a Sunday morning. We’d get in a little sightseeing, have lunch and then stop by a winery or two for tastings.
Later, on the way home, we’d pick up some fresh fruit from one of the local stands, add a loaf of French bread and a block of cheese, and then watch Mad Men and Game of Thrones before going to bed early, LOL!
Yup, this is what happens when you’ve been together for 10 years…
- When were you first allowed to wear perfume?
High school. I never really had any interest in it before that, but by the time freshman year rolled around, I was all about Cover Girl Navy and and Debbie Gibsonâ€™s Electric Youth.
A bunch of my friends were also into Liz Claiborne…but it always gave me a headache.
- What are some of your favorite summer snacks?
OOH! Fresh fruit — watermelon, strawberries, cherries, peaches, plums, apricots… I love fruit.
- An activity you’d like to try?
Even though the thought of having sweaty strangers up in my grill freaks me out, I still think I’d like to try taking a martial arts class with El Hub.
We keep meaning to visit the Brazilian jiujitsu studio up here, but our work schedules just haven’t been aligning with the stars.
- What’s one thing every woman should have?
I think every woman should have a place they can call their own, be it a bench on the patio, a home office, or even just a small corner in the living room or a bedroom. Just a little space that’s all yours, just for you.
The idea of a physical space as a sanctuary is very important for me.
- If you have any pets, what can you tell me about them?
I have one chubby, 18-pound black/brown tabby cat named Tabs with perfectly ordinary tabby features (meaning, he’s gorgeous), and he’s been not-so-quietly dominating my life since 2007.
El Hub and I wouldn’t have it any other way!
- Weekly goals:
To be kind to myself, to step away from the computer every night by 7 p.m. (or so), and to enjoy my birthday on the 9th.
