It’s my last morning to wake up in San Diego. The marine layer is still covering the mountains, the coffee is nice and strong, and Steph and I are doing our morning computer time at the table while MeMe prattles on in the living room.
It’s been a wonderful, wonderful trip. We are planning Cousinpalooza for maybe next year. Giving all 7 of us time to plan, to sock back some money, and get back in the habit of gathering on a yearly basis. I’m all in for that. All. In.
Today is just kind of a laid back day, we’re going to get ready and go to Old Town, putz around do a little shopping, go put my feet into the water and walk around on the beach. I don’t have to be at the airport until 3pm, so we’ve got a little bit of time. We’re eating sushi today for lunch. This makes me ril ril happy. I’ve pretty much checked off all of my list of things to see, do and taste.
I’m beginning to transition into reality mode. I’ve downloaded my next book for class, to read on the plane. I’ve begun to mentally prepare for class tomorrow, for the things that need to be finished in regards to bill paying, insurance stuff, bla bla bla. Reality Bites.
This break, however, has been bliss. I love hanging out with my family. We laugh. So much laughing.
Not a bad way to live.
