Another week…

Another week gone by in a whirlwind of activity. I think this month is just going to continue to be that way, and I best try to get into my zen about it NOW and just accept that’s the way it’s going to be and figure out how to deal with it. I’ll be back in NYC again on Thursday of this week. Have I mentioned how much I loath driving in NYC? It’s like bumper cars in a slalom with a little frogger thrown in for good measure. Ugh. At least that -should- be the last time for a little while. I can hope.

The chef from Elements and his sous and one of the waiters are down in NOLA for a seafood competition. And thanks to the joys of technology and twitter, we’re able to see at least some of what they’re up to. Of all the meals they’ll have down there, it’s the jambalaya at Coop’s Place and coffee and beignets at Cafe du Monde that I’m oh so freaking jealous of.  That’s the New Orleans meal I crave. One of these years we’ll get down there, just not in the heat of summer.

Now planning a trip to Ohio for October. See about staying in some cool places on the way back.

Cold brewed ice coffee ROCKS. I’m seriously loving making my own ice coffee. I just plan it into the weekend fussing and it’s not a big deal to make, and then the carafe lasted me the whole week- including Saturday! The coffee’s so good that I just add some vanilla soy milk, no sweetener, and ice and I’m on my way in the morning. This is so going to cut down on my Starbucks fix.

I’ve done something to my back which is wholly unpleasant. I got a massage on Saturday which helped a bit, even though I’m still seriously sore from it but I’m still in an reasonable amount of pain. I can’t handle another week like last week pain-wise. I’ll lose what’s left of my mind. Pain management doctor was fairly useless, and just said to take some aleve or motrin in between if the vicodin’s not helping. So help me, Goddess, I’m gonna lose my shit. Ok, now we can get that out of my system and move on and do what needs to be done to get through this week.
