Jamaica Mon!

This is the first of a series of entries I've made via my PDA, to keep up my journal while away from my laptop. This first entry is one of two that I wrote while I was still in Jamaica. I started it on the plane to Jamaica, and finished it in the room at Hedonism III.

Okay, so here goes. 19 days without access to email or live journal. Will she survive? My plan is, to write up my vacation, as I get time to sit and type, and then upload the entries when I get home.

Nos Tenemos Brincadeira Ainda?

This is the second in a series of journal entries that I wrote on my PDA, that I'm finally getting around to uploading to my laptop, to post to Live Journal.

Amazing how many days I let this go by when I'm not reading each day...

I'm writing this in the airport, while waiting for our flight from Jamaica to Miami.

So, backing my vacation up a day at a time:

Okay, now the days are starting to fuzz together...

And lest I forget to mention it here, very publicly and explicitly... Gaucha is a wonderful, dear, sweet, adorable, cute, impish, saintly (For putting up with Flar, at times) and delightful person. I am very pleased to have been able to meet her, and would do it all again (except for maybe the nude pool, where I kept getting hassled) just to see her. I hope that we're able to work out a way for her to come to the states. And Knight thinks he's run down a Portuguese language class in the Lexington area, so next time I'll be able to talk to her more.

Tomorrow I find out if our little gecko from the room followed me home in my luggage. I'm pretty sure he didn't, but he was awfully persistent.

Catching Up is a Pipedream

Third in a series of journal entries I wrote on the PDA. It's getting to be habit: When I find myself with time on my hands, away from home, I catch up in my journal.

Here it is, Friday (the 15th). I've been home for 5 days, and I've made only a token attempt at catching up on Live Journal. So, while I'm sitting, waiting for the ear doctor, I'll update mine and let go of the week of reading that I missed.

Today, I've got:
  • a follow-up with my ear doctor
  • a birthday cake to make
  • the Terminix guy coming, for our annual re-inspection
  • a phone call with Turnip
  • more money in the bank, to blow on bills
  • a pizza order to make and pre-pay
  • chess club
  • Critter's 13th birthday party
  • 5 boys to get to sleep at a reasonable hour, so they can be up at 6:30 am to go to a chess tournament in Richmond

Maybe I'll have time to read some Live Journal? At least catch-up on Sydb & Wolf & Ro?

Another Monday

This is the fourth in a series of journal entries that I wrote on my PDA.

I got to the exam room before I could finish opening this document. Perhaps it's a sign of a better week.

I'd fallen out of the habit of recording my food & exercise, so I'm starting fresh, and including calorie counts.

But to recap my weekend:

After my appointment, I'll:
  • get the brake fluid checked in the station wagon
  • pick up more yarn
    for Bébé's sweater
  • clean the kitchen
  • pay bills
  • and pick up the boys from school
