The right decision?

Ok, I did it: I just emailed Sundance and told them I couldn’t do the ’09 festival.  Sigh.  Was this the right decision?  I think so.  When I signed up to do it last year, it’s not something I ever thought I’d want to do more than once.  And for almost the entire time I was there, it wasn’t sonething that I thought I’d ever need to repeat.  But then, at the tail end of the fest — as I started to get a hang of things — I thought, “Maybe again would be ok.”  And then months and months passed with very little of my brain devoted to Sundance, but then that email INVITING me back!!  And I replied!  I admit: I fell for it out of vanity.  But I’ve now come to my senses.  I think. 

These are the reasons that I don’t need to do it again: I already did it.

    I absolutely think you did the right thing.

    P.S. Where is Tyson???

    Thank you and indeed. Though he had only two friends so he must not use it very much and maybe he doesn’t use email, either, but he does have his picture up. Hmm. That made no sense. Ignore.

    Where is everyone? I miss you. I had a quesadilla for lunch and it was suprisingly terrible. Note to self: never again.

    Where does one obtain a terrible quesadilla? Did you get it from the vegan cart? I’m not sure about a cheese-alternative quesadilla. Although I probably shouldn’t knock it until I’ve tried it.

    No, I got it from the Mexican cart on the corner. I know — how do you mess up a quesadilla? I can’t really say other than to say it was just super salty, too filling (even though I swear I didn’t eat it all) and totally unsatisfying. Buh. Should have gotten the veggie curry, which is what I’d set out to do. Damnit. I can never, ever get that lunch back again. A shame.

    hopefully today’s indian food will be better than the quesadilla… and of course I think you made the right decision… think about a real vacation next year!

    I’m almost embarrassed to say it again, since I’ve never had a hard time voicing my opinion but…

    you DEFINITELY did the right thing.


    Yes. I had to use all caps.

    As for you lunch, I have learned the hard way, anything can be messed up. Even a quesadilla. Hope the veggie curry somewhat made up for it.

    I myself am still fuming over the egos in this town. How can someone take “agentrao” personally? I know. I’m letting it go. I promise.

    Christopher Hitchens pulls no punches here.

After an extremely long and entertaining (for those over 6) retirement party, my little Bear has crashed with her little bear. . . . I’ve heard through the office grapevine that some peeps don’t think kids should be at events like this. And that’s a legit opinion. But it’s not mine or Aaron’s so I think we should be all good. . . . Retirements are so bittersweet. This one was a doozy. . . . #wisconsin #friends #ourkidcomeswithus #wiscobarkid #bearonbear #workfamily #humility #sincerity #honesty #love #b&w #eyelashes
A series I’m calling An End of a Era: Skye Had a Limit. Truth be told, she ghosted on Skye and the gang maybe two years ago so this era has been over for some time, but I’m just now getting around to offloading it. And in doing so, I was reminded of both how much we accumulated and in how many forms. The Etsy pegdoll form, in which she asked me to give them little matching string scarves; the tiny little ones Molly insisted on painting because she saw it on YouTube; the pirate series; the Patrollers as poofy rubber squishy friends; and so many more. I love how kids get so into these stories and characters, but the merch is overwhelming. Still, I got a teensy emotional clearing it all out. As you may have guessed. . . . . #pawpatrol #cleaninghouse #growingup #etsy #toomuchstuff #growingpains #decluttering #endofanera

Somehow this pic disappeared from my feed! I cannot stand for such an injustice. The best breakfast sandwich in Madison must be seen and heralded. Blueberry jalapeño jam?!? Who knew?! @ancorakingst apparently. #madisoneats #sandwiches #breakfastsandwiches #sandwichesofinstagram #sandwichesofwisconsin #sandwichesofmadison #ancoracoffeehouse
