As the headline says, by my current standards, this has been a phenomenally busy week. I’ve had visitors —
Today is the November babies birthday party in my family. Lisa Costello and I will be off to Benihana with Mother of the Child,
Tomorrow morning, Lisa Costello and I are having early brunch with Jersey Girl in Portland and her visiting family members. After that, I’m hoping to catch the first matinee of Cloud Atlas [ imdb ], but looking at the movie’s run time (172 minutes), I’m not sure that’s a smart move for me. I hate to miss it in the theaters, though.
Anyway, that represents an exhaustingly overscheduled week for me by current standards. As Lisa Costello observed yesterday after my lunch with John, I really am an extrovert. I was physically wrung out but mentally and emotionally energized by being out in the world.
This chemo-induced introversion is for the birds.
