In the late afternoon I took Mena and Mellie to check out a couple of local childcare providers. This could get weird - "She" has decided she should be doing the childcare thing (And being paid by the state, of course), and is very upset with Mena for looking elsewhere. Things will come to a head Monday...
Timmie headed off to play tag, and I surfed for a while, then decided I wanted a nice leisurely dinner, so I headed off to Cheesecake Factory with a book. The cute waitress count seemed higher than usual, for which I have no complaints.
I had been planning to go up to Oakland and see valeriesparks spin, but was stopped by a couple of things. For one, by the time I rolled out of the Cheesecake Factory, it was already 10:00, I had to go through some hoops to get to the rave, and Valerie's set ran from 11:00 to 12:00. It didn't seem likely I'd make it. For another, I generally like to go places with someone else, especially new places in dicey locations, and no-one else I knew appeared to be going.
I mean, Valerie was going to be there, but I didn't know who else from her crowd, and she was going to be, well, busy.
So I came home, surfed some more, and wrestled with the vagaries of the Eagle layout editor. So at least I've been somewhat productive.
Only four more days until stormmonkey's out, and 31 until "She"'s gone! I'm going to have to learn to deal with sane levels of drama - wonder if I can handle it?
