We went to see my sister at the marathon in town. We ended up missing her cross the finish line. :( Her parents were there. The hubs and I saw them from afar and the feeling I got when I saw them, was the feeling you get when you run into an ex-boyfriend who you've just broken up with (or vice versa) a few days after the relationship ended. It was that same disgust. They ended up leaving so we hung out with my sister. Since she was a participant, she got free beer (just one serving) and free wine tasting! The race ended at Pessagno Winery. We got to sample four different wines. By the fourth bottle that we sampled, my eyes were spinning!
Last night we went over to my boss's and teaching partner's house to meet with their neighbors because the husband of the pair had the same ailments as the hubs. It was really nice to speak to people who have been to the other side and made it through what we are dealing with right now.
When we were in LA, I had two goals-go here and go here. Well, we succeeded with the first destination!
As for our second destination, we arrived and saw a big CLOSED sign because of this. So no cupcakes for us while we were in LA. Sigh..
Since I've been so busy with trying to get my classroom ready I haven't been reading or answering letters but I have been knitting! I was determined to get my breaker breaker socks completed and knitted like mad while we were in LA (as I was catching up on Entourage and The Tudors!). They are now currently blocking. :)
All right..must be off. I'm supposed to be working on my welcome letter to my students!!
