after i drop off the laundry and buy groceries for the week, i am doing my civic duty and enjoying one of the city's beaches.

by myself. just me and some tunes.

it's going to be a gorgeous, cloud-free, warm day and it is exactly what i need to kickstart my summer tan.

if i didn't say it before, i'll say it now: thank christ for my mother, thank christ for my mother ... her love for the tater and her need to hang out with him almost constantly has been a godsend.

I deserve a day to myself. As if that needed to be clarified.
