In the farmhouse things will be all right

I've been told I should update more often.

Truthfully I haven't really been in the spirits to write more ... women's issues mostly. I think I have a hormonal imbalance. Seriously. These things have been getting worse and worse each time, and always so irregularly. It's totally frustrating and makes me feel like complete crap for weeks. Well, I'm sure you'd rather not hear about it. ... To anyone I may have offended or snapped at, I apologize.

... Amtrak canceled my train home because of the flooding. I was supposed to go on July 2 and come back tonight, but the water damage to the track shut down all the trains from Albany to Buffalo until tomorrow. I really wanted to go home and relax a little, celebrate my brother's graduation, spend time with my family. To pass the time here in Buffalo, I spent a sunny Sunday in Delaware Park next to the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, sitting on a bench by this river reading, then walking a little through the brush on the trails, then sitting under these crab-apple trees by the river and enjoying the sun. It felt really liberating. On Monday, I visited Nana for awhile. No bus troubles this time, only I did realize I can't use my Metro pass on the way back. I had to pay the $1.50 fare, but I only had $1.15 on me at the time. Luckily, the bus driver let me pay that and be done with it. Today I didn't leave my apartment; I haven't even changed from my PJs. It made me feel lazy, but there really wasn't anything else for me to do. I didn't really feel like doing anything else, either. Sometimes you just need those kinds of days.

Tomorrow I don't have to be at work until 8 a.m. instead of the usual 7, because of the first intern meeting, which would otherwise have run through company time, and since I don't get paid overtime ... good deal. In two weeks I switch back to nights. More pay for me. I still have to ask for July 22 off because of the Goo Goo Dolls/Counting Crows concert. I'm 100 percent sure they'll give it to me.

I've never seen fireworks being set off at tens of spots all over a city. It's really pretty, and the view from my apartment makes it even better.
