Waiting … and waiting …

Since I’m sitting here waiting for my darling spouse to get ready …

Really just a quick update. My Birthday was Friday. Nothing really special. We went to dinner at an old favorite restaurant that sadly we haven’t been to in a long time: Ristorante Amoroma in Moraga. I think the last time was our tenth wedding anniversary. They are still there, the food is still excellent, and the Zabaglioni (dessert) is still superb. Just CJ and I.

Sunday we went to our friend Rachael’s restaurant for a wine-pairing dinner she was doing with Acquiesce winery in Lodi. Superb food, good wine, pleasant evening, and Rachael paid for our dinner (we tipped well, though).

The rest of what’s been happening? Not much. Just work-work-work … breath … work-work work …

Today we’re heading up to Cloverdale for the annual Beltane (SCA) coronation event. Then back to work-work-work. The new schedule is wiping us OUT. Me in particular (although CJ’s job has been stressy lately …). I’m working 14 hour days two days a week, gack. Oh well. It’s a job and one I usually like, so …

Well, time to finish the packing (need to get spouse to show me which linen shirt is the right one, there are several and various PILES of linen things, and …). Sigh. Then driving for awhile. Quite awhile … we’re hotelling it in Cloverdale and driving out to the site in the morning. It’ll be a fun weekend, but not as much relaxation as I’d like. C’est le vie …
