So yesterday I took a half-day. I let the morning be relaxed and went about my full set of ablutions in a sort of semi-mindful way, which is to say mostly doing the stuff I was doing rather than putting all my attention on a Long List Of Things To Do. I did a couple errands (stopped by Kaiser for a blood draw, picked up a lunch salad from the kebab place in Broomfield) on the way in to the office and got there a little after lunchtime. And it worked! I had a lot more focus and was able to get a number of things done. Today was also pretty good.

Last weekend we had folks over to play Descent on Saturday. The scenario was horribly broken (everyone online agrees that it's just impossible for the Overlord to win), but we managed to have a good time anyway. Played a few rounds of Exploding Kittens afterwards. Mostly just visiting with friends, yay!

Then on Sunday, we drove down to visit Bob & Mike for cake tasting. We had pistachio and pina colada regular cake, and bakalava and root beer float cheesecake. They were all good; the pina colada moved up a couple notches, but otherwise they stayed about where we had them originally. I should mention that we were tasting varieties that we were unsure about, because we're going to have multiple kinds of cake at the wedding. (I had the realization that one of our strategies for dealing with difficult wedding planning decisions is to find solutions that involve not making them. So far it's working well.)

Wait... you have Kaiser there? I don't think I knew they were in Colorado. Always good to know where my Kaiser choices may be if I ever decide to leave California.

But more important... Root Beer Float cheesecake??? Whaaaaaaaat? What is this magical sounding thing?

We often found that an effective way to handle difficult wedding decisions was to let the person who cares most about the topic make the decision, with an "Are you okay with this decision" check before executing.
