I have had the last 3 days off from work and I still have 1 more before heading back. This weekend Steve, his parents and sister all went to the Ohio State/USC game. There isn’t really much more to say about that. He had fun and was excited to see the Bucks play.
Friday Rhys and I went up to see family in Pasadena. We had lunch at Islands and had fun playing with my nephew James and visiting with the in-laws. Steve was fighting a fever and stayed behind to get better for the game Saturday. Friday night Rhys and I headed to Santa Monica to spend the rest of the weekend with my good friend Lisa, Bart and their son Gavin. Rhys loved playing with Gavin and I really enjoyed just being able to relax and spend some quality time with friends.
Saturday while out running errands with Lisa we headed over to the new Whole Foods Market in Venice. I got to see my favorite boss Mike Bowen and talk to him. He is the one who inspired me to go into graphic design with WFM and be confident in what I know and love to do. That was a huge boost for me and my interview for Signmaker at the La Jolla store (btw, set for October 1st).
After a wonderful brunch with everyone today (Steve included) the Joneses headed home around 1:30 and made good time getting home at just over 2 hours on the road. Rhys slept the whole way home.
We just finished dinner and Rhys is watching The Wiggles as I type this. It’s going to be nice to sleep in my own bed but I’m really glad that I was able to see good friends and just relax. I hope to do it again soon.
