Year 2/Day 162

Year 2 - Day 162

Forgot to take a picture today.  So here’s a picture of part of the poetry section at Moe’s in Berkeley, CA.  We didn’t have much time to browse…but it was a truly beautiful site and I hope to get back there one day.

Year 2 - Day 156

We took a road trip to Berkeley, CA today.  Just the two of us.  I found a list of “fun things to do” around the area online and found that near the Berkeley campus was a neat hippie shopping district.  Aside from the crappy, grey weather it was awesome.  We found out that they not only had another Rasputin store but also Amoeba Music.  Talk about trying to restrain ourselves from spending hours there and tons of money today!  :)

We also found a really cute metaphysical shop and I got a beautiful piece of labradorite.  Plus the clerk was really cute and nice to talk to.

Got hungry…and stopped for a yummy slice of pizza from Fat Slice.  We also got some ridiculous chili cheese fries before we headed home.

It was a great day.

Year 2 - Day 155

One “fun” thing Will and I have done while we’re out here is music collecting.  There is this amazing store called Rasputin which sells new and used CDs.  I have such a varied taste in music and I’m always willing to try out new music.  Well…jackpot!

They have tons, I mean tons, of cheap CDs.  Most of which I’ve never heard of, but what I did was go through them and pull out ones that looked interesting.  Then, once I had a stack of interestings I’d look them up on YouTube and sample a song or two.  If I liked it – I bought it!  How fun!

So…I got my days mixed up and now I have a weird day.  :/

Year 2/Day 146


Visited Will’s dad today, and met with the doctors.  It’s all a little strange.

My goal is to just be supportive and encouraging.

Year 2/Day 145


Yet another day of traveling.  This time it’s not for “fun”.  Will’s dad took a turn and has been in the hosital for a couple of days.  We’re headed to San Jose, CA to spend time with his parents and see if we can help at all.

Unfortunatley, we had some plane issues and after we had already boarded the plane and spent a good 45 minutes or so aboard, they told us that the maintenance crew had tried to replace a part.  Which didn’t work, and now we need to deplane and go to another aircraft.  Yay.

Eventually we got to where we needed to be, with a safe plane to fly.  Our flight was nonstop from Atlanta to San Jose…a 4 1/2 hour flight. Good news for us…we flew first class.

Let me start a new paragraph for this explanation.

First class is…worth the money.  Damn.

Free drinks, by that I mean…free alcoholic drinks.

And a hot towel!

Dinner was served, at no charge, with real dishes and silverware. No plastic stuff here! There was even a cloth placemat provided. And peppermint chip ice cream for dessert. Yum!

After everything was cleaned up, I watched Elf and dosed in and out of consciousness until we landed. Once landed, we headed to baggage claim and found out our rental car place had closed. So, we rented a cab to the hotel, checked in, and went to sleep. Night, night.
