I'm accidentally starting birthday / vacation things off with dinner by myself at Matchbox (I actually like eating by myself on occasion). It was either that or sit in crippling traffic so - pizza!
I've been dreaming of Heather a lot lately. Normal dreams - like, last night, I dreamt I'd gotten a new job and she came to visit at the office. I don't remember much except, at one point, she looked at me, smiled and said 'what are we we doing for your birthday? It better be fun.' (Oh subconscious - reminding me how much I miss her and how much she would have wanted me to enjoy myself.)
It looks like birthday plans are thus tomorrow:
- 9 am hot stone massage
- dad takes me to a winery (Phillip Carter)
- we go try out the pub he heard about and hang out until
- dinner at Claire's at the Depot with mom for dinner
It'll be really rough - but I'll try for her.
