“Just Like Old Times”

I woke up at 5:30 and took the dogs out for their morning constitutional.

Was I hung over? Not even a little bit.


Ha! Not meeeeee!

I’m telling you, the best and only foolproof way of dodging a hangover despite drinking too many drinks is to stop at least two hours before you fall asleep.


Loony was getting a little hair of the dog. Heheh. Get it?

Yesterday’s 5th grade graduation party ended at 7pm which gave me ample time to walk home with the kids, watch a couple episodes of House of Cards and pound water before eventually packing it in around 11:00.

Scratchy woke up around 7:00 and we decided to celebrate this first day of summer vacation by having breakfast at Dot’s.

Dot’s Diner is a Boulder landmark and I frequented the original gas station location back in the day. I tried in vain to find a picture of the old location.

Internet, why have you forsaken me?

I always order the same thing. Tofu rancheros with red (sauce), refried (beans) and a plop (of sour cream).


Our waitress has been there for 19 years and we were surrounded by familiar faces.

Lou Reed was playing on the stereo and Scratchy and I were trading perfect bites of food.

Meanwhile I was texting/talking a friend down (I haven’t come up with a cute name for her yet) because she was feeling insecure about a misunderstanding.

She was me. I know that feeling all too well and was happy be able to point out the obvious and make her feel better. I was also happy that I wasn’t going through that emotional rollercoaster, at least not this time.

I am overcome with nostalgia and the deep conviction that everything is right in my little world. I’m going to enjoy this feeling as long as it lasts.
