Well, we got home on Monday afternoon. Boy it is good to be back home. You know you have been gone too long when you cannot remember where your dishes go-lol! So here is the brief version of my trip:
Wednesday night: landed in Oakland around 2. Got to Larry's Moms house & went to bed.
Thursday: Went shopping all day, had dinner with Larry's Mom, sister Fawn & niece Jessie
Friday: Larry's Mom took me out dress shopping, then packed to fly down to Burbank the next day
Saturday: Flew from Oakland to Burbank, where my best friend Melissa (since 7th grade) picked me up. Our other friend Gayla met us at the Hotel where the Reunion was held. We got dressed then went down to the Reception at 6:30. Had 1 drink, talked to some old friends, then had dinner. Very small turn out but saw my favorite people mostly from Junior High as I had gotten separated from them all in 11th grade. Went down to the bar till 1:30 then up to our room where we just went to bed. No slumber party talks like we used to have-lol!
Sunday: Melissa & I drove up the coast & stopped at the beach for lunch. Larry rented a car & drove down to Ojai to meet us. Then went to our motel.
Monday: Drove down to Santa Monica to see my eldest sister Kathy & her husband. His daughter was also there so they paid for us to stay at a hotel for the night. The next morning, went back over & spent the day with my sister.
Tuesday: Left my sisters house & drove all the way back up to Oakland (San Leandro) to Larry's Moms.
Friday: Just kind of relaxed-fnally
Saturday: Larry's Mom threw a party at 2 & I got to meet the people that Larry grew up with.
Sunday: Went out to breakfast then got things packed & left for the airport. Took off at 6
Monday: Due to a bad weather in Detroit, we had a 2 hour delay & did not land in Knoxville till 11. Got home at noon feeling like a Zombie after being up all night (I came down with another ear ache the previous Friday).
So as you can see, for me it was kind of a whirlwind trip but it was so worth it. Randy did a great job of taking care of the house & the fur babies (Tonia we had to remove from the house the Saturday before we left). I am still having a hard time adjusting to time & everything. But it is good to be back! And not only did I not gain any weight, I lost it! This morning I was down to 129.8. Woo Hoo! I have missed you all terribly & am glad to be back with you!
Love & Hugs!
