We made it!!!

Well, it took us nearly 2 and halfdays to get here, but our drive to California was uneventful. We arrived here Friday early evening, and spent time visiting with my aunt, whose house we are staying at. Yesterday we slept in quite late, due to our long trip, and then got up went out to breakfast and then to my parents house to pick up our dog, and head to the beach!!! =) It was lovely!!!

Then it was back to Aunt's house to clean up a bit and meet the parents for dinner at a niiiiice restaurant in the harbor called "Scotch and Sirloin",where we recieved first class service FROM the executive head Chef himself...who is my brother!!! It was a wonderful meal that put us all into a "Food coma" LOL. My stomach kept screaming "No more!" while my mouth kept saying "MORE!!!" (My mouth won!)

Today is going to be a nice relaxing day. We went out to breakfast with my aunt and her friend, Cindy, then we went for a little drive and saw all our old stompin' grounds. Then hit Starbucks for me and Jamba Juice for the Hubs, and now we are back at my aunts house to relax for a bit, before we head to the movies to see the Terminator movie.

I have yet to pick up any stitching...probably after I finish posting here. I haven't stitched for about 5 days now...going into withdrawal! =( The way I see it, I can stitch when I'm in Japan, now is the time to to visit family who I won't get to see for awhile.

Gosh, I missed California!

sounds like you are having a great time. I also would wait for the stitching. Family time is more important.

So glad that you have made it to California! I agree, right now that time with family is much more important than stitching! Enjoy and cherish this time that you do have!
