Rain rain rain rain rain. It's truly monsoon season. Right now it's 68 out, and I'm looking for a sweater. Almost.

Tesse comes out tomorrow to visit!! Super excited!

My life is surreal. I adore Kim, my nail tech. I've been faithfully seeing her every two weeks since I moved to Verrado, so about two and a half years, and we've become friendly. A few months ago, she said she and her husband were having issues, and I gave her my number and said to call if she ever needed anything. So Saturday night, after Eve and I watched Outlander (and I was just dozing off), she called in a panic because her husband had emptied their savings acct and said something about going to the casino. So she asked if I could do her a huge favor and watch their year-old son overnight. No problem - she came by around 11pm, we made a little baby bed out of blankets, she left formula and diapers, and went off to find her husband. I love other people's kids. And her son slept the entire night (I locked the cats - who gave me the stinkeye all morning Sunday - out of my room, and every time I woke up, I checked that the baby was still breathing. Kim came back at 6am to pick him up, and I staggered through work in a fog yesterday.

So she texted me to say that she is seriously considering taking her son back to her parents in Vietnam to raise, and may file for divorce. And could she stay here for a while? You know me... so I may get a roommate for a while. NOT permanent, I kept telling her. But until she gets settled down. Anyway, she hasn't gotten back to me yet.

Next brow wax better be on the house.

Horrified to hear about Robin Williams.

Tomorrow I have to go to traffic court in Scottsdale - for running a red light. Which was yellow, according to the traffic-cam pics they enclosed. Wednesday I have to go to traffic court in Buckeye - for allegedly speeding and not-coming to a complete stop at the stop sign here in Verrado. Sigh. I refuse to comment on whether or not that one is warranted.

I can't believe it's August. School starts earlier out here, so Eve's munchikins are off to classes already, and seem to be surviving so far. We've alternated between "monsoon thunderstorms" and "just plain hot" this week.

I'm stoked to be watching Outlander as a miniseries on Starz. I upgraded my DirecTV package so I could watch it. Yum. One of my favorite series - and if the first episode is any indication, the small-screen adaptation is going to be just as wonderful.
