Having a great time; wish you were here


California is great. It’s lovely and cool; a nice change from the unseasonably stupid-warm temps back in OK right now.
I’ve bought two pairs of shoes and a purse already.
The trip out was uneventful except that we had to rush to make our connection in Phoenix. But we made it and everything else was easy.
I lucked into a super-cool rental car. Check it out. (The one I’m driving is silver.) I guess they were all out of the Intermediate car I had reserved. A perk of not picking the car up until later in the day.
Kids are doing well. JZ is, surprisingly, not giving us any trouble his first time sleeping in a “big boy bed.”
I’m doing well. The crazy pills are doing their job. I’m enjoying just relaxing and being in the moment of being here.
I will update more later but now I’m off to enjoy some Thrifty ice cream (rainbow sherbet and Chocolate Malted Crunch) and watch a movie with my mom.
It doesn’t get much better than this.


About msmaryb

I'm a native Californian who lives in Oklahoma. I'm a full-time student, pursuing a Bachelors in Anthropology, following which I hope to attain a Masters in Archaeology. I have three kids, one husband, no pets, and a lot of friends - most of whom live inside my computer. I love to read, write, watch tv (shut up, we can't all be brain surgeons), shop, and travel. I'm trying to set foot in all 50 states before I die. I have 38, so far. I love the Beatles and Maroon 5, and if you think those two things are incongruous, well, they are. But that's me. When I love something, I love it 100%. I don't do anything halfway. I want to know everything there is to know, so I'm trying to cram as much into my brain as I can in the short amount of time I'm allotted in this dimension.

  1. Mary: glad you’re having a good time. As everyone knows, food, followed closely by peace of mind, is the most important component of any trip or travel. Food you love and as much of it as you can shovel in. That’s always been my motto. I thought of you last night when I made some popcorn in the skillet on the stove-top burner, while simultaneously melting a small pat of butter in a saucepan for my bowl of buttered popcorn. YUM! YUM! As I happily consumed my delicious bowl of lightly salted, lightly buttered popcorn, I said to myself, “This bowl is for you, Mary”, not particularly caring whether or not you like buttered popcorn.
    Have fun!

  2. Glad you are having fun!! I am also glad you are feeling better!
    Let me know how you like the HHR (in detail!) Justin keeps trying to get me to trade the van in for one. *nervously looking around*
