Got the format idea from keeumm
and I like the efficiency of it.
Drove from AZ to Mom's house in CA, 11.5 hours. I hate I-5.
Had banana chocolate chip cake from Starbucks in Blythe, which made me very happy.
Started reading Pride and Prejudice, which my sister had a copy of.
Can't even remember what I did that day, but probably not much. Went shopping somewhere with my sister, grocery store I think. Later, Costco with Mom as well. My cousin practiced card tricks on me all night. I totally missed an earthquake, even though I was sitting downstairs reading when it happened.
Oh yeah, now I remember, I went and got my birthday present - a lamp.
Saw my friend Allison and her brood, plus our friend Erol as well as some people from high school that I had not seen in years. Didn't get to spend too much time with them, but I was very happy to see them.
Celebrated Christmas that day, since my cousin was going to Washington the next day. My brother and sister-in-law came over for dinner and presents.
I'm getting my bed! My dream bed! I'll put up a picture sometime.
Went shopping with Mom, and got the lampshade for my lamp. Saw my dream bed at Pottery Barn, and literally hugged one of the posts. I want that bed SO BADLY!
It was one of the most un-Christmas Christmases in my life. We watched Little Miss Sunshine (bizarre) and laid around.
Finished reading Pride and Prejudice, which I loved. Wanted to watch the movie again so bad I almost went looking for another copy of it.
Had coffee with Dad
Went to see my friend Alison in San Francisco. We went to Pier 39 and Fishermans's Wharf, which I loved. I haven't been there in ages. We then took the "scenic route" back to her home, at which I once again marveled at the way buildings are crammed on the incredibly steep hills.
Went from SF to Sheltri and Eric's in Hayward. We went to Chevy's for dinner, and Sheltri and I caught up while we waited for Eric. I gave Eric grammar lessons after dinner, which was quite amusing. I was writing example sentences on a napkin. We went back to the house and talked for a few hours. I miss them very much.
Went to Sacramento. Picked up Kelly, and went to Old Sac, yet another place I hardly ever got to see, even when I lived in the area. I miss Kelly too, we think so much alike! It's my goal to save up and visit her in New York this summer.
Went to see Hilary afterwards, and met her daughter, Lisa. Hilary I also miss very much, as we are so goofy together in a way no one else understands.
Drove home, 11.5 hours again. I still hate I-5.
Went to the coffee shop before even going home.
Got home, immediately turned on Pride and Prejudice. Love this movie!
It's good to be home.
