LA weekend

January 27, 2010 at 11:40 am (domestic life, food, fun, music, social networking) (, , )

It  was a very  busy  social  weekend  for  us. Some  friends  of ours were  married in Maui  and  had  their reception  this  past  weekend.  But  also it   a good trip  away  from  the everyday,  which  we  really  needed.

Things  I learned  about LA  this weekend:

Despite  the traffic,  most  of LA  seems to  have fairly courteous    drivers.

It  really is quite  beautiful in  LA

Despite being  the place for  beautiful  people,  there is  a whole bunch of places  where  you  can  get really  good, less than  healthy  food.  I’m  thinking Pinks ,  which has  great hotdogs. Or Roscoe’s.  Or  In  and  Out Burger. 

Things  I  knew , but love  having reenforced.  My  Buffy  people are great.  Smart, lively , fun   and  tolerant .  Good  People to hang  with .  Turns out the other  friends  we  met — Which  were some of DH’s online  tribe –  the same.

Finally, it  was great to go to a  guitar store, hear  my DH  play  and have  strangers – that  had  no  need or reason other than appreciation — say  good  things about my DH’s playing.

I  haven’t been writing as  much.  Too many  worries that are beyond  my control.  The  sorts  of things that  only  time can  give  an answer to.  And  one  of  them is Andy.  He hasn’t   been  100% well for awhile.  Today  he had  an ultrasound.  Possible  lymphoma.  I’m  not even sure what  is next or what to do.  I’m  full of  rage and heartbroken.  this cat  is  such  a lover,  and he has made  me laugh so  hard that i can’t  stand  up.  I’m so glad he  has been with us for  this short  time, but even a hint towards  the  end  is hard

This year  I  made a resolution.

I  know, I’m really  not into  them.  But  this one is all fun.

This year I  resolve  to ACCESSORIZE.  No, really.  I  have  the jewelry  ,  the scarves ,  and even  a hat or  two.  It  should be  fun.

My new friend  E  turned  50  this  year( 2009). And  she  declared it  her  year.  On  her  birthday  she  filled  her  house with sand  , so  she  could have a  beach  party ( Yes,  it  sounds  crazy  but they are redoing  all the floors– so  not  a bad  time to  have  some  fun).   Her  family  had  more  fun  with the sand than they  thought  they  would – so  it  stayed for  6  months.

so  here are  the things I know E  did for  her year:

had a big  wild beach party

took  her  house  from  traditional to tropical

brought  tons  of  music into her  house

Went  back to  school

What a great  year!
