I got a new cat on Saturday, July 30. Her name is Mel. She came from the shelter and I think she’s beautiful. She’s extremely friendly and affectionate – and temperamental. She can switch from purring to hissing at the drop of a hat. But it’s nice to have a kitty again. I think she’s really happy to have her own house and be out of the shelter. I hope she’ll calm down once she realizes she’s ok and not under any form of threat at her new home.
I’m thinking about doing another triathlon in mid-September. It’s another sprint, it’s in the park where I do all my training, and I think I would like to do another one.
I’m taking a weekend trip to South Dakota with my daughters in September, but I think I need to schedule a “real” vacation. I almost booked a train trip today. Denver to SanFrancisco, sleeper cars, etc. I got as far as the credit card info and just didn’t enter it. My sister and I were going to take a train trip in September, maybe that is where my hesitation is coming from.
I need a vacation! But I don’t want to spend a lot of money. Unless of course the vacation is super cool!
I saw my two little grandchildren over the weekend and will see my eldest granddaughter this weekend. That’s wonderful. And selfishly, it means I can plan to take a vacation somewhere just because I want to go there. I don’t NEED to see anyone. Except my brothers – but I’m not going to the east coast again this year.
Ok, enough of this stream of consciousness…
