1. After telling my mother about the death of her sister-in-law, she seemed to take it fairly well, only breaking down once for a very short period of time. I did the best I could breaking the news to her gently and it seems to have been sufficient. (I’m not making bets on her having broken down once I got off the phone, though.)
2. LEGO Architecture build #7 is complete – the United Nations headquarters in New York. It joins the Guggenheim Museum, Big Ben, the Trevi Fountain, the Seattle Space Needle, the Empire State Building, and the Lincoln Memorial. I’ve always had an interest in architecture and this is a way I can enjoy architecture and still feel like a kid about it.
3. I had my first steak without salt tonight. Almost as flavorful as it was when I was salting the crap out of my food.
Bonus! I got everything done on the checklist except for exercise and stretching. Considering that I had planned today as a pass due to finding about my aunt’s death, I seem to have kept right on plugging through the day, though I admittedly slept through most of it. I’m over on my caloric intake for the day, so we’ll call that my pass.
