I like pretty things


Andy's mom joined us for a birthday party at Ramsey Park, where we bumped to Zula's dad, and a Bess's mom. Ramsey park was full of kids and their parents.
Then we came home and chilled out. I just bought a playstation the day before so we played that. Then we all headed out at 4:30 pm to Tamlyn's house. Where she had cooked us indian food. We chatted. Andy and kiddo swam and hung out in the hot tub.
Then Nick started playing the piano and we sang around the piano.
It was pretty lovely and delightful.

The morning I had an early lunch at 9 am, then I went to Brentwood Social House to chat with author Amy while she had her baby with her. Andy and kiddo went to a birthday party at a pinball place.
It was a good chat while we followed her baby around.
Then I came home and held the fort while Andy went to teach. I got to play Celeste while kiddo gave commentary.
Then Andy's dad showed up in town and he hung out for a bit with K, they watched magic school bus together.
Then Andy came home and all four of us went to Madam Mam for delicious thai food.
We came home, played some video game. I'm heading out at 9 pm to borrow some games from Kevin.

work/life balance

I'm definitely struggling with work life balance. There are people at work that are overproductive workers. This guy was coding at 9 pm, 3 am and constantly slacking and talking.

And I don't want that life where I am constantly plugged in but it's hard when people are responding to you at 9 pm. I need to set better boundaries.

I'm starting to get work dreams. I dreamt we were moved to a different building where we all sat in short big tables, and we were all right next to each other. I guess that's my version of a nightmare, even more close and clustered open space working.
