So tonight Prez-O (President Obama) is hosting a something at George Clooney's house, which happens to be about five minutes, on foot, from where I am currently residing. I will be honest, I was in cahoots earlier today thinking that I was going to have the hardest time ever getting home after work since they shut down one of the main roads used by Los Angelians to go over the hill. But, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that traffic was actually better than usual. I presume most people are a) scared of the Secret Service (which, let's be real, they're not that secret, they are a very conspicuous group;), b) figured traffic was going to be terrible and went another way entirely, leaving "my hood" clear as the summer sky, or c) were camped out at the last open bit of Laurel Canyon to try and sneak a peak of the old chap (good luck, what with the hundred cover-up cars, police escort, and all those other expensive, tax-paid people he must use). I guess I owe Prez-O an apology for cursing his name within the hour before I left for my "journey" home today. And also probably for that semi-spiteful tweet I put out his morning. Whoops 8)
All in all, today was filled to the brim with excitement. (Please note: my sarcasm could cut through sheet metal.) I bought my mom her Mother's Day gift, probably the first time that's happened in the last 23-years. (I'm an excellent card-maker/giver. You know, the kind that ALWAYS make the reader cry, which to be honest is my goal with each and every card that I give. Devilish little thing, I know.) And as I am trying to put up a post at least a few times a week, I will save my mother-gushing till Sunday, when I'm feeling extra full of mommy-love. Sadly though, I will not be with my mom in Stockton to celebrate. But I do get to celebrate with some other family down here that I rarely see so it will be a joyous occasion none-the-less.
That is all for today. I am working on implementing consistency into my life, and next to exercise, blogging is it. I will try and make sure something really strange happens tomorrow so I can share it with you all.
Side-note/ADD Drift: I'm off my ADD medication again. I think it's been almost 1.5 weeks. I certainly am feeling a bit less-focused, a bit more crazy, and 100% weird-er (aka the person God created me to be). But I have an appointment on Monday to meet with someone and get evaluated. (I don't think that my medication was really working too well since I'd been taking it for most of my life. Time to switch it up and see if that can help "reel in my crazy" better than the last.)
Night ladies and gents, have yourselves a lovely evening, morning, or afternoon, and if you don't even know which time period you might be in, good for you! Learning to live a satisfied and full life without a clock is a gift few are given.
