I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired so I wanted to post about good stuff. I just found out that our third annual San Diego trip is a go. I'm very excited. We are going the first weekend in January. Well, I am going the first weekend. My Sweetie will already be there on business. What a great way to ring in the New Year! It's also a great way to celebrate being non-smokers because as most of you know, California is a non-smoking state. I am looking forward to experiencing all my favorite bars and restaurants from the inside. I remember passing lots of lovely bars when I'd go inside a restaurant to use the bathroom. Now I will go inside and park my butt at these places and enjoy them. If the weather is great we will still take advantage of all the outdoor seating, but this time it will be a choice. We won't have to sit outside. I think my favorite part will be waking up and not stressing about being presentable enough to go to the rooftop to smoke. This trip, when I wake up, I can stay in my pajamas as long as I want to.
The last two years I planned something particular to do, and I already had a few ideas, but now I'm thinking I may not plan anything. I mean we only really have the one day - Saturday. And just since I've typed all of this, I'm thinking maybe we should stay at a different hotel. Maybe on the bay? I've already found two that look interesting. With marina views, no less! Okay, now I am even more excited about going. I really love the Gaslamp District, but the bay and marinas? I think it's time for a change of scenery and one of the hotels is very close to the Gaslamp District. As a matter of fact, I believe it may be the tall building on the left in the picture up there. Anyway, I'm glad to have something fun to look forward to.
The weather here has been SO NICE! It's sunny and in the low 70's and it's been day after day of this and is supposed to continue. I love sitting out on the deck in the sun and not getting hot. And it's in the 40's at night so sleeping has been really really cozy. It gets down to about 69 inside which is 4 degrees lower than summer air-conditioning. I could live with this weather forever. Well, I suppose you always need rain eventually.
I'm going to get and carve my pumpkin this weekend and start working on my yard ghoul. I guess the pumpkin part will happen on Sunday because my husband, oh so very subtly, said, "Now tomorrow you are going to rest and take it easy." That's his way of saying, "Don't plan on anything for tomorrow because I plan to vege out and play video games all day." He's so cute.
So anyway, I can breathe again, I have my San Diego trip ahead, the weather is great and I have some fun crafty halloween stuff to do. Life is good and I'm going to enjoy it. Even if it kills me!
