Yesterday was extremely productive.
I met Kat for lunch at Venues in the Highlands Area. Kat moved to Denver, a week ago, and is living in that area. I had not dined there, yet, and had every intention of checking it out. There is a cute couple that frequent the Bull. Emily's brother is the chef of Venues. I wanted to check it out since they are kind and interesting people.
Kat and I both had the chicken cordon bleu sandwich. It was lovely--fresh bread, chicken and ham. The service was attentive, and overall, the experience was great.
Afterwards, I met the Goddess and we ran to Wash Park. I was dragging, a little, and figure it was because it was my 3rd day of consecutive running. Since the marathon, my runs have not been very consistent. I signed up for 2 1/2 Marathons and so it is time to begin running, again.
I returned home, showered, and checked my e-mail. My CPA had done my taxes and my lawyer contacted me about the Slumlord. He will be served today or tomorrow with his notice of going to court. Finally, there will be redemption for that situation. I am glad that I left. The two girls that lived under my unit are still having severe issues with heat and plumbing. They have decided to move out/break their lease and probably sue the Slumlord as well. 2010 will not be lucrative for him.
I considered going to small claims court or dropping my suit. But really, this man is never going to change his ways unless he is made to pay for his negligence. Thankfully, I know attorneys that are willing to help me out.
I think I got Kat a job at the Saucy Noodle. She wants to work and they need an "adult" server/hostess. I do understand that qualification. Meaning, they want someone that will show up, wants to work and is responsible.
Later, I met Jenny Minard, my friend that I have known since we were 10 years old. She lives in Denver and we try to meet up every 6 months, but for whatever reason, we are only able to meet once a year.
Actually, I saw her in December and we planned on meeting in April at a bar in the Highlands area. Solera was our destination last night and it never disappoints. We sampled their wine tasting and ate the truffle fries and cheese plate. While we were sitting there, in walks one of my friends, Milky. He tells me that my boss will be joining him, shortly. Sure enough, in walks Dave and his friend, Laura. They had attended some glendale city of commerce function and were in the mood for appetizers.
Denver is a small town. I realize that every day.
Yes, I had an extremely productive day. It felt amazing! Today, I am writing cards, watching a movie, drinking wine and making dinner. Productive in a completely different way.
