Serotonin level is down. Waaaaaaaaaaay down.

But I don’t think pouring wine in my coffee mug at 2:30 in the afternoon is the most bril idea.

Ooof.

Do not ask for fulfillment in all your life, but for patience to accept frustration. Do not ask for perfection in all you do, but for the wisdom not to repeat mistakes. Do not ask for more, before saying “Thank You” for what you have already received.

Words to live by.

Remember the mandatory family meeting I mentioned a while back? It took place over the weekend. My MIL has been diagnosed with a disease (I am not very particular to sharing extreme details of personal stuff here on the ‘webs. Even if I’m the only person reading this blog). I’ll just say it’s lethal and the doctor foresees some serious nerve damage happening in the soon(ish) future. She might loose control over some basic body functions.

Her husband (B’s stepfather) has been diagnosed with another lethal disease. They have several children under 18. 

So, yeah. That’s the news. And we’re taking her out on a weekend getaway in the spring. Want to make great memories while we’re still able to. 

Also, on a completely unrelated note, my brother-in-law’s girlfriend really pisses me off. She’s just …. a highly unintelligent person of biblical proportion. I didn’t even see the point of her attending our family meeting. My inlaws hate her but are too nice and reserved to tell my brother in law that they hate her guts.

Enough rant, back to work. Gotta have this kitchen floor cleaned. Been filthy for days now. 

Ever wonder if physical perfection exists in humanity?

Last night we went to a Bedouin restaurant and had singlehandedly the most delicious eggplant hummus I’ve ever tasted. For the main entree, we both ordered the same dish, a spinach with lamb dish that was so succulent and needless to say, absolutely tasty. I didn’t take any photos. I haven’t become that kind of blogger yet, apparently.

Then we stopped by a lounge/bar super close to home. Either I’m a serious lightweight or the bartender put some serious amount of martini in my appletini, because I was drunk after my first drink. That has never happened before, though I’m a lightweight. 

It was a lot of fun, and the bar turned out to be a friendly hole in the wall type of establishment. I’ll definitely go back there again. The fact that it’s so close to home is great. For some reason, if I’m drinking in a bar, I tend to feel a whole lot at ease if the bar is in a very short distance from home. I feel a lot safer that way. Strange, perhaps, but everyone has their own quirks, I’m sure.

Tonight we’re going to see a burlesque performance. EXCITED doesn’t even begin to cover it.
