Well, here’s my last 48 hours. Has yours been this crazy? On Monday, I picked up DIL from the airport at 12:2o p.m. She was in town for a conference in La Jolla. She got settled in, we did a bit of shopping, and then had a mani-pedi at 4:00 p.m. After that, I made a simple tuna melt dinner. She was super tired, still on east coast time, and went to bed at 8:00 pm. We set our alarm for 6:00 a.m. so she would have time to work on her presentation and go to Kinkos to print it. At that same Kinkos/Fedex, I was getting a delivery of my new Mac Air! which I am so excited to have, but scared about the learning curve. I am a slllowwww learner when it comes to techie stuff! I dropped her off at UCSD for the conference, drove back home, and got ready for the captain to arrive at the airport at 10:20 p.m. Yes, finally, finally he is coming home! DIL and I planned to meet at the hotel she was booked at for one night, and I brought all my clothes and makeup to meet her at 6:00 p.m. for dinner and a bit of relaxation before leaving for the airport—yet again. Whew! Picked up the captain, fed him guacamole, a jalpapeno cheese quesadilla, and collapsed at 1:00 a.m. Today, picked DIL up from her conference, brought her home to greet the captain and have a quick surf sesh. I’m the one you can’t see, on a towel, trying to find seashells!
Of course, the first thing in the morning, captain ran out the door to get a piece of that good surf and his cranky mood disappeared. DIL was scheduled to fly to San Francisco for a business meeting, returning on Friday before heading back to the east coast on Sunday. That meant a quick shower for her and BACK to the airport. I pressed the cap into service for the airport drive. Now we’re home, had a nice dinner, and we’re relaxing with a glass of wine. We pick her up Friday night, but for the moment, it’s just the two of us.
