Rester simple. ⇔ Keep. It. Simple.
Hello beautifuls! Our laptop has been back from repair for a little over a week. Sadly, the hard drive needed to be replaced, so Mr D has been working to get it up to speed once again. Fortunately we had purchased it only 6 months ago, so we didn’t lose too much. Unfortunately . . . it only performed six months before malfunctioning. As I stated in a previous post, this will be our last Dell computer. If Mr D had not purchased an additional maintenance plan, we would be out hundreds of dollars right now.
The good in all of this is . . .
. . . during its absence we finally bit the bullet and purchased iPhones. The phones were a good distraction.
I have a confession, while the computer was malfunctioning and gone, I began listening to podcasts on my new phone. ( I have been craving a little direction. )
The BIG news is . . .
WE ARE LESS THAN 30 DAYS AWAY FROM JAY AND CAMILLE’S WEDDING!
OH YES! THERE IS INTENSE JOY IN MY HEART!
Tonight, after work, I will be heading to SEA-TAC to catch a flight to Boise. Camille’s family shower is tomorrow. After the shower, I have a final meeting for the rehearsal dinner, and will pop into the hotel where all of our guests are staying. On Sunday, Camille’s mom, Stephanie and I will hang out and do “wedding stuff”, as Camille has to work. I fly home Sunday night.
Jay and I will cross paths. He and a crew are driving to Seattle today. The Regional Emmy Awards are tomorrow night. He’s up for three Emmy’s this year. ( I just had to say something . . . I’m a proud mom. )
He will be home with Mr D and I for a few days before he departs with his buddies to Chicago. It should be no surprise to those of you who have read me for a while . . . His bachelor weekend is going to be centered at Wrigley Field.
With so much on my plate, and . . . to refrain from being entirely overwhelmed, I put together a little tool box of faith, mind, spirit, family, self-care and fashion. I keep it on my mirrior in my bathroom, and on the front page of my current journal.

Writing things down helps me as I age. Sadly notions and thoughts slip from my mind more often than before.
I wish you a happy weekend!
Got to go! I need to pack!
To the clinic and to Boise!
