I have yet to witness this awesome event — the butterfly coming out of the chrysalis, it happens instantaneously.
I also had a visit from a Comcast technician. Lots of connectivity issues, intermittent service (which sucks). Turns out I need a new cable run from the box on the street to my house. In the meantime the technician changed out some cables and connectors and my service coming into the house is better than it was, but not ideal. So hopefully, I won't be dropping my signal nearly as often. The new and better cable should be installed within the next month.
I got a pedicure today, and the woman that did the pedicure was from Vietnam. She has only been in the U.S. for five months, and is married to an American man. She refers to Ho Chi Minh City as Saigon, and in broken English told me she misses her country, and there men are treated like Kings. She also said that the Vietnamese people love Americans. She said after the fall of Saigon in 1975, the southern part of the country was very poor for about 25 years, and is now starting to revitalize. I would like to visit the country some day.
After my pedicure, I stopped at Sweet Sue's Bakery and got a wrap for lunch, turkey, feta, lettuce with raspberry walnut vinaigrette, and then headed to the pool.
At the pool, a young lady (going into the 7th grade in the fall) began talking to me. She was so bubbly and energetic. She liked my lime green bathing suit, she didn't like wearing sunscreen with a high SPF (it's all about the tan, she explained). She also told me very matter-of-factly that her parents were divorced, and that her mom had already remarried, and her Dad was going to marry a woman from the Ukraine in the fall (seriously??? Are there no available American women?). I asked her if she had met the woman from Ukraine, and she said, "No, but I've talked to her on the phone, and she's REALLY nice."
I came home, cut the grass, took out the trash, and am now getting ready to eat a healthy and nutritious dinner.
My observations from today.
