DON's Deal: Weekend Time

A lot of reasons why I could be home up North again this weekend:
May 14th is my sister's birthday so happy birthday, Hizzle!  Cholula will provide you with lots of birthday kisses.
Virtually participating in gift opening this am.

 Lara's memorial is this weekend and I'm sorry I can't be there to remember her with her family and friends.  I'll be remembering all the fun we had.
 The insanity that is Bay to Breakers going down in San Francisco. I'm officially retired from this costumed, drunken madness that sweeps the city, but I think back on it fondly and will crack a beer (and be thankful I have a bathroom nearby).
Arriving on the first flight in Sunday morning is Mama Maria (sadly, without the Lu) to help cook for me for a few days.  Doesn't it just feel good to be taken care of by your mom? On that note, I will spend today cleaning - blergh.
Happy weekend!

DON's Deal: Keep it Healthy

We lost a friend over the weekend after a tough battle against Cystic Fibrosis.  I have so many amazing memories with Lara: beach trips to Santa Cruz, countless pool parties and sleepovers, and one intense perfume battle with a drugstore scent called Rap Musk which her parents weren't very happy about.  She was a beautiful, hilarious person and is gone too soon. Please consider registering as an organ donor; Lara's donated lungs gave her more time and I know she used it well.  Also, I urge you to create an advanced healthcare directive (as well as other estate planning documents) as it makes decisions in difficult times quick and simpler.

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day. I was so happy to be at home with my mom and can't wait to have her come visit next week! Much love to all my mama friends!
