Not-So-Quick Update

I went to San Diego. On the flight to Las Vegas I stared at the guy sitting in front of me, pretty much the whole time, trying to figure out if he was someone I knew. At the Las Vegas airport he came up to me. He was!! It turned out we were both going to San Diego so we sat next to each other and watched an edited version of "Little Miss Sunshine" on my laptop. It made the flight bearable anyway.
I stayed in California for three days. The first day I got to take the train up to Anaheim and a Taxi to Disney land.

I know it's blurry. This is a pidgon inside the Train Station. As in "Zim. There's a pidgon on your head. You have head pidgons. Leave before you infect the other children."

Waiting at the Train Station

The kids were great. We were exhausted by the end of the day. Posh Spice cut in front of us in line. I only know it was her because the people behind us completely freaked out. Even after I told the kids who she was they didn't understand. They had never heard of the Spice Girls.
Day two was a Mardi Gras party were I had a very strange green drink. It was supposed to be "the Disneyland version because this is a family friendly party." It was still strange. I wrote my story for the ESSC that night. Maybe that will explain why it was so weird. The story, not the drink.
Day three we took a hike in the canyons. It was beautiful. Later that day was my flight home.

The next weekend Drek and I went drove to Las Vegas.

The drive was fantastic, so much better than flying. We stayed with my Aunt and Uncle. They were so wonderful to us. We visited the Casinos, watched the fountain show at the Belagio and visited the LDS temple. The temple was the only place we took pictures.

That night we went on the thrill rides on the Stratosphere. It was amazing. we had so much fun. Another life goal completed. On Sunday we went with my Aunt and Uncle to their Methodist church. That was amazing. The songs were wonderful and I even got to do Communion because the "wine" was just grape juice. We drove home that day. It was a wonderful trip.

I didn't watch the Oscars. It was a sad habit anyway. Time to give it up.

Krisling got me a job at her work. I'm so excited to start!! It means I'll have to quit my Nannying job, but that is a good thing.


  1. So you are alive and not dead. Good.

  2. I have to say, Child, that was the funnest (yes, I know it's not a word. Your mom.) trip I've been on in a long time. Mostly because you were on it. ;)

    Let's start saving for Texas. :)
