Menttium Dinner

Delicious dinner at 888 Ristorante Italian in San Carlos with my 6 Menttium Alumnae. We started out as mentees together around 12 (?) years ago, and get together for dinner 3-4 times a year. We’ve become friends, and watched our careers, lives, and families grow. I love the history I have with these strong and loving women.

Bell’s Palsy

So I got a text on Monday morning that Val, who left Sunday for a business trip in Lexington, Kentucky,┬áhad woken up with half of her face paralyzed. Needless to say she was freaked out, and I was too. After many hours and a trip to the ER accompanied by her colleagues Dave (who kept me posted throughout) and Ravi, they determined it was not a stroke or a tumor, but rather Bell’s Palsy. She’s coming back Friday, but has been miserable all week. Big Hugs to her across the miles!

Friends and Shopping

On Sunday the 19th I had brunch with Stacy, after which we picked up Susan and headed over to the Humanist Hall in Oakland for the yearly large women’s clothing sale to benefit Big Moves. We all got something, but Stacy really made out: two full bags of clothes for $65. AFter that we went over to the WeBeBop outlet and spent some more. A successful shopping day!

Jay & Timnah’s Wedding

Our dear friends got married at Timnah’s parents’ house in Mill Valley, overlooking the bay, like a slice of heaven. It was fabulous seeing them and all of our other friends who were there, and to share in their joy.

Pictures here.

Maze Day – middle school registration

Kathie and I spent several hours on Thursday 8/16 staffing the table for the Music program at the middle school. I came back the next day to help our volunteers get started, and have been working ever since to enter all of the data from the forms we collected, and get information to the school about kids whose schedules need to change. Whew!
