OMFG . . . What a Weekend!

It's not often that I get a nice four day weekend right smack dab in the middle of a couple of hard weeks at work!

It all started last Friday, I finally got a chance to catch-up on some much needed rest. But what did I do? I spent most of the day helping marsman0013 go through all his Sun systems for his EBay store. We didn't get as far as I would have liked, but I think we weeded through most of the stuff and figured out what we had to do later. It was fun spending some time with a relatively new friend in the South Bay area. I don't hang-out with anyone from work and really don;t know too many others down here. I think this is a good thing.

Saturday was spent at a friend of Ellen's up in Palmdale for a great barbeque party. Met even more people and ate a lot of carne asada. Good stuff!

Sunday was filled with a visit from another freind/former coworker of Ellen's. We spent the day at Hermosa Beach. There was a big street carnival down the middle of Pier Avenue. We shopped a little as we walked down to the water. The tide was a little on the rough side, but the water temp was perfect (around 73F). We shopped a little more on the way back to the car, went home to cleanup and the back to Redondo Beach for dinner at Tony's.

Monday, I was back at SoCalCompSales to finish getting the Sun systems ready for market. Unfortunately, the day was finished by going to the emergency room because Ellen's dad was there. Not too worry, it wasn't too bad, but enough for concern.

As for Tuesday and Wednesday, I think the tardiness of my journal speaks for itself! I have been swamped not only woth work, but also with preparing for Ellen's surgery next week (9/11 . . . remember?).

It's late and I need my rest, so I will break it off here.

  1. Sounds like you've been having a blast. I will be thinking of Ellen tomorrow during her surgery.
