I'm in full packing mode, my move to my beach house being scheduled for August 3. Today, my friend Kirsten emailed me to say she was going to El Torito for her son, Marko's, birthday, and could Danny and I join? I emailed her back with apologies - I was so frantically packing, I couldn't possibly make time.
Then - I thought about how I'm trying to fit more joy into my life as part of my life list. Sure, the new house is a huge source of happiness. But so is getting together with friends.
So I emailed her back with a big fat yes.
