Wow! It has been nearly three months without an update! Time flys. I will try to be better about posting and with all the stuff in the news lately i might even get back to opining.
On Monday we got back from 5 nights in L.A. We went back for the UCLA transplant picnic. We had a long list of things we wanted to do as well so a few extra days were required. We stayed at the Tiverton House right next to the medical center. This will probably be our home away from home from now on. We got in early on Thursday morning, the same day that the Drapers were going home. That morning the hotel was abuzz with activity for their departure.
Just a quick run-down of our activities. We went shopping at Ameoba. We ate at a lot of good resteraunts. We went to the Queen Mary and the Scorpion submarine. We saw a movie (Nacho Libre). We ate at some more good resteraunts. We went to the transplant picnic. We went to the beach a couple of times. We went to the Venice Beach boardwalk and saw the freaks.
There were only a couple of things we wanted to do but were unable to. We wanted to go to the Acker Mansion and see the collection of Sci-Fi and Horror movie stuff - no dice. We also wanted to go the the Santa Monica Peir Aquarium - no time.
Emily picked up a little ear infection and so she got to go to her favorite hospital for treatment but that also meant that she was not able to do much at the beach.
It was a great trip and I can't wait to go back - maybe we can squeeze in some of the things we missed. When we got home the cats had gone crap crazy and the house was a mess. While cleaning up that we realized that at some point during our trip the frig had stopped working and then started working (sort of) again. So, we have to buy a new refrigerator the next day! Good thing we just refi'ed the house.
I will try to add some pictures soon.
