I'm going to California!

After many, many years of never leaving the house, I am going on my second out of state trip in two months! Okay, I leave the house once in a while, but I rarely leave the county, let alone the state. Mike has to go to Irvine, California for two weeks, so I'm going to fly out on a Friday, spend the weekend sight seeing and fly home on Tuesday morning. Since he travels so much, he has already saved enough miles for me to fly for free.

I never had the desire to go out west, but I am looking forward to seeing the Pacific Ocean. I would also like to see Hollywood. My sister lived there for a few years and has told me all about it and it sounds pretty interesting. By interesting, I mean it sounds really weird and I think it would be fun to watch all the weirdos. I just hope I don't see the guy pooping in the potted palm tree that she told me about! More than anything, I just look forward to seeing something new, getting some time to relax, and spending some time with Mike.

The kids were, surprisingly, happy that I was going. They would have been happier if I was taking them with me, of course. They actually had a good time with CUP in charge, even though he made them do chores, according to the girls. When Shauna heard the news, she ran up to CUP, gave him a huge hug and said, "Yay, CUP's in charge!". Wow, makes me feel really wanted!

Well, I need to buckle down and get some work done around here. It is a beautiful day today and we have outdoor hockey, but I would like to get at least a little done around the house before I head out. Mike is working away on Steven's old room, so I better at least make myself somewhat useful!

Nick said that Mike actually asked him to go first but since he couldn't go, you were Mike's second choice.
