things are good

got some good, no, great news today about my job. Reinforces that career-wise, I made a good choice with the decision we made a few months ago. Things are going well. That always makes things better all the way around.

I miss the boys terribly, still, and even more so since Elder Child seems to have come down with pneumonia. Apparently, he had it last week, but the substitute doc they saw neglected to give them the diagnosis directly. And the three-day course of antibiotics didn't do much except piss off the germs. So he spent most of this weekend miserable and hacking and sad. and it hadn't gotten better, so they went back in to see his regular doc today. But the plans to bring them up for a good long weekend are starting to solidify, so that's something to look forward to, and something that wouldn't be possible without this new job, so it's all good.

Ran 2 miles on the TM yesterday, during a driving afternoon rainstorm, but then was able to hit the north end of Central Park this morning. It was a brisk 60 degrees out and clear and just gorgeous. After work today a group of us went out to dinner, then walked a bit toward the middle part of Manhattan to get some of this. It was yummy and light and just what we needed after a nice evening stroll through the city. It was the first time I've been out and about after work -- usually I'm so wasted from a long day at the office that I just go for take-out and bring it back to the room. But tonight was fun and relaxing, and a good way to get to know some of my teammates.

Anyhoo, I'm running on battery power, so I've got to shut down soon. Just wanted to let you know I've not forgotten about all three of y'all!!

I left you a voice mail today, but at the end the "lady" said my message didnt record and hung up on me. Rude Lady. Will call you tomorrow!!!! Glad you were able to enjoy some walking time in the city and Pinkberry looks divine!

So sorry to hear about Sandro though - poor little guy!

Umm, that does look good. Where did you go to get that? I will keep it in mind for my next visit.

Figured you were talking about your computer but perhaps you were talking about yourself.

That looks so yummy!

Thanks for the time management tips... but I've got that one down already ;)
