October 30, 2015 | RL recap |

Let’s just say that October 2015 was a month to remember for me.

The craziness actually started in September (when my brother’s childhood friend brought a musical from Thailand to the US, and Seattle happened to be the spot for the 2nd tryout run after Pasadena) but it fully came crashing down in October. *lol*

  1. worked half day, Dad dropped me off at SeaTac, arrived at LAX, met up with PJ, drove to Thai Town (about 15 miles away), got stuck in traffic for 2.5 hours, are you kidding me LA? finally got food, drove back to PJ’s house, played with the dogs, showered, passed out around 1am
  2. woke up early, ihu internal clock, rolled around with the dogs, went to a farmer’s market, grabbed lunch, got home, played with the dogs, left for SD, got stuck in traffic, barely made it to VIP, DAVID COOK CONCERT, gelato, finally got on the bed around 1am
  3. PJ dragged me to a Core Power Yoga class, almost passed out *lol*, lunch at 4pm, grocery shopping at 5 different stores (what?), homemade chicken liver pâté, watched Mad Max Fury Road, KO’d around midnight
  4. rolled around with the dogs, watched some football, dozed off, woke up around 4pm-ish, packed, drove, checked in at hotel near LAX, drove to the Troubadour, SELLA!! DAVID COOK CONCERT, drove back to hotel, showered, hit the bed around 1am
  5. woke up at 3am, too early for human being to function, let PJ sleep, shuttled myself to LAX, waited for TSA to start their shift, got to the gate, got on the plane, passed out, landed in Seattle around 8:30, Dad picked me up, got home, showered, went to work, almost passed out around 1pm *lolz* bad life choice, but it’s business plan time, I had to #ZombieMode

  31. (((ok, it’s 10/30 right now but I’m planning on sleeping for at least 18 hours, so Saturday shouldn’t have anything except kids knocking on our door *lol*))) HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!!

That’s about it for October. November’d better be calmer than this!
