Then, after going to work for a few hours (two of those hours were spent sitting around waiting and my clients not showing up or bothering to call), I came home and packed to head off to Ventura for a Women's retreat with my church. Despite the fact that I got almost no sleep last night due the fact that there were four of us sharing a room with two double beds and a train going by right outside the window, the conference overall was really good. I got there early yesterday so I could go running by the beach. I went on the path that I used to run every morning when we lived in Ventura. I ran by our old house, which looks so run down, but still can't beat the location. I ran by the park where we had Kevin's first birthday. I loved being there again and just remembering. This morning I took a walk out on the pier, hoping to see some dolphins but no such luck. It was cold and foggy, which is what I never liked about living by the beach, but this morning it felt good. The speakers and the time away were both good.
Now I'm back and just finished watching Mulan with the boys. Tomorrow we are going to church and then down to San Juan Capistrano. I'm ready for some sleep to make up for my sleepless night. Here's hoping all of you moms have a wonderful day tomorrow.
