It has been a long but fun week. My son and I went to San Francisco to see family and to celebrate Passover. Every year we do this holiday at a different cousins home. We aren't a big family but we are very, very close knit!!
I got to see some family that I don't see often. Cousins from Canada, the ones that live in San Francisco of course, cousins from South Carolina, others down the coast of Calif. and best of all, my cousin that moved to Thailand!!
It was a great week, lots of hugs and laughter and wonderful food (don't ask!!). My son and I explored San Francisco together. We got to take every form of mass transit which included buses, trains, ferry, trolly, planes and cars. We had a great time and found so much to do!
11 members of my family decided to catch a ballgame! We went to see the Oakland "A"s beat up the Red Sox!! What can I say, we are from NY and are happy to see ANYONE beat up the Red Sox LOLOLOL!!!!! It was my first time at a stadium that wasn't in NY. What fun!!
It's great to be home. I'm sorry my daughter was still in school and couldn't make it but maybe next year (of course I don't know where it will be then!)
I know lots of holidays are going on right now. I hope they are happy for everyone!!

Yesterday my daughter called. I asked her if she was coming home this weekend as it is the start of spring break at her school.
She said, "Yes, I'm on my way. I should be home in about 2 hours."
ARGHHH,....lol ...my first questions was, "What do you want for dinner?"
I jumped in the car and ran over to the supermarket. I bought all her favorites. Fresh salmon, fresh broccoli and the rice she loves. She loves when I poach the salmon and I had some leftover white wine which is perfect for poaching.
She got home and I had everything ready to cook. Within a half hour it was all done and we sat down and had a really lovely dinner. We talked and talked (well, she talked mostly and I listened). It was so nice to have her home and happy and giving some time to her old mom.
She is going to her dads for a few days but for the most part will be home for the next week. Know what I'm doing?? LAUNDRY!!!! LOL - she wouldn't think of not bringing THAT home!!!
I can't stop smiling!!
