Unfortunately this is turning into a food blog. It was intended to be more about writing and reading and changing choices and character. One area I certainly have succeeded in is losing weight. Ten pounds! And, I have been able to occupy my time with things other than eating and television.
I need to focus more on my writing and finish reading the books I brought with me. I only have several chapters remaining of Same Kind of Different as Me. I must say I was a little disappointed in the author dragging out the agonizing death to cancer of one of the main characters over 12 chapters. I suppose it was central to the story but it drove me deeper and deeper into depression. Now it has only a few chapters to lift my spirits before the final pages.
Having dinner with Justin and Kara at their friends house was quite a diversion. There were eight of them in all. They meet Saturday nights to enjoy an exotic meal and a wildly diverse discussion. They are all teachers in their thirties. They all seem to share an affection for animals (There were five cats in the host's home) and a disdain for the school system, students and their parents. Which is why I edited the group photo and their names from these pages.
It was an entertaining evening — a conglomeration of Twilight Zone, The Simpson's and an assortment of reality TV shows.
