Happy Sonia Weekend

1 Comment

Yeah, so, David has dubbed this weekend “Happy Sonia Weekend” since I’m going in for my lumpectomy on Wednesday. Basically, we are doing things that make me happy.

We starting HSW on Thursday night with some dinner at Flipper’s, followed by Kirk Hamilton‘s “Exited Door” show featuring the awesome Dan and Lindsay on vocals at the Rickshaw Stop.

On Friday night, David and I walked down to one of my favorite places in the neighborhood to eat, Just For You Cafe. We were just going to enjoy some happy hour, but happy hour turned to dinner, especially after the waitress told us they were serving sangria. An entire pitcher of wonderful sangria was consumed with delicious chicken fingers with mashed potatoes and green beans, and a chicken empanada and cripsy vegetarian tacos with black beans.

On Saturday night, the gang went bowling at Presidio Bowl for Dan’s birthday. Back in my Chico days, I was in a bowling league. I don’t mean to brag, but … I have trophies and stuff. Expectations for my bowling score were high … Not surprisingly, I disappointed. HA! I didn’t even manage to break 100. I didn’t really care. I had a great time. David, Kate, Karen, the DH, the Coach and I shared a lane. We drank plenty of beer and ate some fried food. We had a blast.

After bowling, we went to Final Final where the DH sang "Born to Run" to everyone.

I drank quite a bit of beer on Saturday night, so I wasn’t surprised when I didn’t get out of bed until 10 a.m. Eventually, David and I got dressed and walked down to The Ramp, where we could sit outside and have a few drinks. Since it is HSW, I decided to treat myself and get the crab benedict. FYI: It’s amazing. So much crab piled high … Damn. I wish I was eating that right now.

For brunch I decided to wear my new turquiose summer dress from Nordstrom and this cute, little hat I picked up.

After The Ramp, we walked home and took a two-hour nap. I got up just in time to go to yoga. After the surgery, there will be no serious yoga for a few weeks, so this was my last chance to hit the mat before Wednesday. I’m hoping that if I take it easy for a full week, I can easy back into some gentle yoga shortly after. I figure as long as I’m not doing crazy back bends or laying down on my chest, I should be OK.

Tomorrow, we are meeting Michelle, Tony and Kate at Phone Company Park for the Giants game. David and I are planning on going down there early so we can walk along the Embarcadero for a bit first. That is one of my favorite things to do in SF.

After that, I will be all about prepping for my recovery: Grocery shopping, cleaning the apartment, etc. I’ve got a ton of stuff on the DVR ready to watch. I suspect for the first day or so I’ll be on pain meds and sleeping a lot. After that, my friends will come over and take my pain meds with me while we watch TV. Ah, good times.

I'm a writer/mocker/goober/mother in San Francisco who likes to drink beer, shop, laugh and make other people laugh, podcast, watch old movies, feed my unhealthy obsession with pop culture, kick breast cancer's ass, wear orange and root for the San Francisco Giants, participate in general jackass-ery, talk about TV, eavesdrop on strangers' conversations, make nerdy “Star Wars” and “Simpsons” references, and post personal things about myself on the web for all to read, which makes me some sort of literary exhibitionist.
