A California Christmas
I made it to Cali! It took us 27 hours to get to Los Angeles, and we missed out connection bus to Oxnard, We were pulling in as that one was pulling out, and the next one wasn't going to Oxanrd until 11:30, about 3 hours later. So, since it is only an hour away, we got a Taxi, paid quite a lot for it, but who wants to sit around a bus depot all day?! My parents live in Oxnard. So, we just got a Taxi and were home in an hour as apposed to sitting in the bus station for three hours to take a bus that willt ake 2 hours to get to where we were going. we shaved 4 hours off our travel time that way! So, anyway, we made it alright, and am enjoying visiting with my family. My mom oges crazy with decorating! And I am enjoying all that. And just being able to relax a bit. I finished an ornament since I got here. I didn't get any stitching done on the bus, because it was so full with holiday travelers that there was not much room, so I just tried to sleep a bit. I had my headphones and just relaxed. I am hoping it won't be so busy on our way back, as we won't be going back until the 5th of Jan. maybe most poeple will be done with their traveling. We shall see. Well, we are going to go face the crowds and take my little nephew out to do his Christmas shopping, he still has a few things to get. I hope you are all having a great holiday season! I am trying to keep reading blogs, but may not get to everyone's. (Boy, thank goodness I am unemployed now when I get back I am going to have ALOT of blog reading to catch up on! ) So, if I am not getting to your blog, to leave commets, I am so sorry! thank you Cindy and the other gals who have left me comments here!
