May 18 – I did not get the memo that everyone shows up late the weekend after the gala, so I was let out early. I spent my few blissful first free hours in over a month…cleaning! But at least I can go home now and relax!
I have managed to still work out every day with this schedule. It has involved using a lot of hotel gyms and waking up early. Which isn’t as terrible as I thought it would be.
The rest of the month will hopefully be part relaxing while still busy!
May 21 – F|S Third Thursdays, keeping the museum open late for lots of fun and activities!
May 22-27 – Home to California! This will include a Mexican food night in Downey, my cousin’s wedding, Islands, In N Out, a hair cut, the beach, Charlie’s Chili, the Violent Gentleman Store and watching the DUCKS!
May 28 – F|S Friends Opening of Filthy Lucre
May 30 – SRS and Friends board meeting at a donor’s very own backyard Japanese tea house
May 31 – Tea at the Jefferson Hotel
I can’t wait for it all.
