Best news first: my husband will be here on the 13th! It's been almost seven months since he departed to his home country of Cymru to prepare the way for our immigration, and he's finally feeling settled enough to come back for a visit. I hope that the next time we see him after this, we will be joining him in the U.K.

I turned twenty-eight on Tuesday. It was a good birthday, all things considered. My family bought me a bouquet of flowers (I'm unused to receiving flowers from others), and we had a savory dinner at Yamato's. I love Japanese cuisine, the non-experimental kind. I drank a tall vase of hot sake and had some to spare!

I'm going to dangle these pricey yet oh-so-pretty Noa Noa pieces in front of my nose as motivation to count calories and lose weight. Meal planning? Not going so well. Since I'm working thrity hours or more a week now, a lot of what I'm doing is grab-and-go. So I'm trying to do whole wheat toaster waffles, eggs, soups, and gluten-free sandwiches, with organic chocolate bunny grahams for the Squirt.
And a bottle of blueberry wine for Mama. c;

Birthdays bring evaluating, and a fair amount of angst. I spent most of my time at work this evening re-evaluating. What do I want to do with my life? Since I'm not able to be a stay-at-home mom (an extremely honorable and preferable vocation, if one can afford it, though not necessarily the easiest route), I need a career that will elevate as well as bring home the bacon.
I'm working on noveling, but I'm decidedly for a slow-but-steady mastery over an instant gratification quick route, so I'm resigned to that being on the back burner for a couple of years to a decade.
In the meantime . . .?

Warm Bodies was an uplifting, positive romantic comedy suitable for teens. I might have to write a review of it in the following weeks. Quite good.
