A Week in San Diego

I'm so behind on both writing and reading blogs.  Sorry that it's been a while.

We had a great week in San Diego.  It was my company's client conference, so we had a ton of clients there and every day was non-stop.  Luckily I was able to catch a few naps here and there, because my back was hurting from sitting and standing so much.  My back only feels really comfortable when I lie flat, which I'm not supposed to do. 

The plane rides over and back were not very much fun at all.  At least on the way out, I had an aisle seat, so I was able to get up quite a few times between Atlanta and San Diego.  I have found that sitting down for a while, then standing for a while, then sitting for a while... this all makes my back a little less sore.  On the flight back, I had a window seat, and I didn't want to ask someone to switch with me.  So I sat in my seat for the entire flight without standing up or using the restroom once.  This is bad for two reasons:  1.  I'm supposed to stay hydrated, which should mean that I should be using the restroom at least once in a 5-hour period.  2.  I'm supposed to not sit or stand for more than an hour (which is really, really hard to do, if you think about it).  I was DYING to get off that plane in Atlanta.

While I was in San Diego, my company surprised me with a baby shower.  All the ladies from the company were there.  I was so surprised that I cried (I cry a lot at sweet/sentimental things these days).  They had some fabulous food, a beautiful cake... just a great time.  Then they gave me some adorable baby gifts.  I'll have to post some pictures later.  They also gave me some ridiculously generous gift cards to Babies R Us and Target, and then the Executive Team offered to pay for live-in help after the babies are born.  Needless to say, I cried over and over... I was just blown away by their generosity and kindness.

It was a great week, but I'm glad to be home.  I got home on Friday night at 1 am and slept until 11:30 on Saturday.  I seem to be back to a normal schedule now.

I'm going to go in the garage and put the first coat of white paint on that bed stand.  Hopefully I'll have some pictures of the finished product soon.  I need to buy some knobs for it.  If anyone knows a good place to buy knobs (cheaper than Pottery Barn), let me know!


  1. you are gonna think I am totally crazy but I LOVE knobs and look through them whenever I can! You can get any shape size or color at any hardwear store but the coolest ones are at antique stores. They are hard to find and if I was close I would gladly go on a hunt with you.

  2. What a generous shower! You are obviously loved and respected by those you work with ~ and it is easy to see why...
