Time For Posole

Jon and I are headed to a wedding in New Mexico tomorrow. All I can say is thank Christ for that. We are desperate to get away and recharge after what I can only describe as a hideously awful week.

I realize I haven't been a very good whore lately. I'm sorry, really. If you knew the insanity that has been in my world recently, you might not hate on me.

On a positive note, the week's haps inspired Jon and I to eat fancy dinner at La Folie last night, which was charming as always, and I stopped being such a pussy and drank a 1/2 glass of Champage -- the first alcohol that has passed my lips in the 30 weeks I've been growing Diner #3. Something about a French sommelier can make me do just about anything. On another positive note, sometimes being in hell inspires you to finally find a permanent way out, which I have done. I think we can all drink to that.

The book deadline is Friday. After that, I'm only writing for you, sweetcheeks.

xoxo

I think you're awesome. When I remember being pregnant in the last few weeks, I can't believe how much energy you must have to write a book and fly to a wedding. All I wanted to do was sit in our backyard and watch the sprinklers. (Very hypnotizing and soothing to me, for some reason...)

"A good whore" ... is that kind of like the hooker with the heart of gold?

Have fun in NM -- let's compare notes. I used to live in Santa Fe. Like a lifetime ago.

Congrats on polishing off the book!Hope you enjoyed Santa Fe - and I hope it wasn't too horribly hot! We were there a year or so ago -the enchiladas and sopaipillas are worth the trip alone in my book! They have some good fancy restaurants too - I really liked Geronimo.
