    Thanks so much, emily!

    I'm going stir crazy here because while I got the verbal offer over the phone, I haven't gotten the formal offer in writing yet. My references need to clear first. So I won't put in my notice until I've gotten my formal offer, and the delay is driving me nuts. HR red tape at its finest!

    okay self,

    get off of the computer and go ride before it gets hot. The one day you have to actually ride for more than an hour and here you sit. As your trainer would say "own it"

    Dear DH,

    Thank you SO much for deciding (at the last minute) that you really do want to to go to your high school reunion as that means an unexpected trip to back to the US (for over 2 weeks!) for us! My mom is going to be surprised and thrilled, and I can't wait to eat all the foods I've been missing, drink WINE (which is way too expensive to buy here), see some beloved friends, and just be "home" for awhile.

    Have I told you lately that I love you?

    Dear heat and humidity:
    Go do anatomically impossible things. Thanks to you and your friend Mold, I just had to throw out a whole loaf of bread.

    Grr.
    At least I don't leave slime trails.

    Dear Tropical Storm Ernesto,

    Please stay away from Belize, or, if you can't do that, just weaken instead of strengthen.

    Thanks!

    Dear woman ripping flowers out of my front garden:

    What's up with that?
    Although it is really better than shooting up a bunch of people. Next time, let me know that you need some flowers and I will cut them for you, so it doesn't make such a mess.

    Signed,

    Each day is a gift, that's why it is called the present.

    Dear sleeping-in neighbors,

    You missed a great sunrise this morning. When I went out for my run, the horizon was starting to glow, but a planet (Venus maybe? Jupiter?) was still visible. And over the next 40 minutes, the light and colors progressed across the sky, ending with a beautiful clear blue overhead. Lovely. It was cooler and less humid, too, making it delightful to be outside.

    Ditto. Much as I hate to do it, I've been storing bread in the fridge, after having to throw out more than half a loaf a few weeks ago. And when I went to have the last piece of peach pie last night, it was fuzzy.

    I always store bread in the fridge, honestly. Sure it means it's no good unless I toast it, but it never seems to last past three days otherwise.

    Keeping bread in the freezer works well. Slicing it first makes it easier to thaw in a toaster, but dries it out a tad more. We either slice up the whole loaf first or slice it in thirds, freeze separately and thaw overnight or in the microwave. Not quite like fresh, but not bad, tastes about half to a day old.

    Looks as if Ernesto didn't hear you. Good luck and stay safe.

    Dear Self--wow, that was freaky. Almost made your first major mistake on the new job but turns out it wasn't a mistake afterall. You can now pull your heart of your gut and try to catch your breath. Now comes the challenging part, standing ground and telling the author they are wrong . . . while simultaneously stroking their ego. You can do this! You will not cry.
