We went to one of my favorite places ever for dinner. It's a little bakery sandwich shop called Beyond Bread. It's like this magical carb planet with amazing breads and just as yummy things for the middle. I always get this sandwich called "Annie's Addiction," which is a vegan sandwich with AMAZING bread, hummus, sprouts, cucumbers, some other stuff. This time I got it with Turkey just to make the miniature version of my doctor that resides in my head happy. My name is not Annie, but I'm definitely addicted.
After dinner, we pretty much just hung out with my friend, Joanna and her precocious 4 year old, Aubrey ("my niece"). This kid is so much fun. I like to rough house. She likes to rough house. A lot of fun. We played with her Barbies and other random toys she kept bringing out. When the little one wasn't really paying attention, Barbie and her friend, Barbie, became "12 Step Barbies" and attended meetings and earned chips. I love this kid. I sewed her this little tiny quilt when she was 2 months old. It was the first thing I ever sewed and it wasn't really all that well made, but it has become her security blanket. She cannot sleep without it. It's so worn out. It's so holey and faded. The fabric I used was pink with a bunch of little frogs on it. She calls it her "Froggy." I have to admit that seeing something I made so loved to death makes me feel pretty good.
I was supposed to bring Zealie this weekend to spread her ashes in special places, but it's going to be raining and I didn't want to get her ashes wet before they got to spread around.
Right now I am feeling kind of really chapped from Wind Burn. I forgot how windy Tucson is. I'm okay. A little numb. I'm really sad. I'm still really scared. I'm in pain on and off. It was pretty intense when I passed a little exit off the freeway that led to a tiny little town of hell in the middle of the desert. I had to fight the urge to take a detour and visit Maggie and Tim's old house again. If I had taken this trip alone, I probably would have. I also probably would have ingested a lot of chemicals from a glass as well as a mirror.
Here are some pictures so far:

|Little miss smart alec. Tiny snarky munchkin. My kind of girl.|
|Saw this on the road today. I think this guy might be my Soul Mate.|
|Buy one Get one? Do I get to take the seniors home?|
|Seven is a very frightened little bottle opener. (What happens when you are totally bored and trying to walk around because you have a really sore ass from sitting in the car.)|
|Not in love with the pics, but they show the cut. 13 inches off :-)|
