8:40am - start new book on cd called the curious incident of the dog in the nighttime. started reading the book two weeks ago and decided it would be faster to listen to it instead. listening to books on cd makes me happy. smile hearing narrator (sounds like the little geico gekko) and giggle imagining a little lizard sitting in the passenger seat reading to me.

9:25am - curse morning commute traffic, road construction, and stupid women drivers who do their hair while driving

9:45am - arrive at Barnes and Noble and am surprised I have to get a parking ticket to park (luckily B&N stamps your ticket so you don't have to pay for parking)

10:00am - buy book, get parking ticket stamped, leave store
10:10am - back on freeway, drive home but decide to stop at Whole Foods on the way back

10:20am - walk around Whole Foods and look at all the over priced, super cute baby stuff, pick up some veggies, strawberries, hummus, and yogurt - yum! glance at poor women with two young boys completely out of control and listen to them scream at the top of their lungs. fight urge to give her a great big hug and tell her I've been there and to go home and try again later. feel lucky all is right and good in my little world at the moment.
