We took a long weekend to Las Vegas as a kind of early birthday for me since my birthday weekend will be busy with other things. Arrived Wednesday afternoon, went shopping a bit Thursday and tried Sickies Garage for lunch we had spotted previously. We had very bad for you food that tasted pretty good … Continue reading Summer Concert Series Continues
Three concerts in the bag so far and they have all been absolutely epic. All bands are from my teen/early 20's years of clubs, fond memories with my brother and friends having fun. These are all bands that I loved back in the 80's/90's and never got to see live... Until Now! Each had me … Continue reading Summer Concerts are Back!

Went for a walk around the Japanese Friendship Garden at Balboa Park yesterday. It was my first time going through it though I have been to Balboa quite a lot over the years.

Well it's almost the end of January so what has happened: My husband has submitted his final thesis and is waiting to hear on his master's degree. This will be the end of his formal education and he is so looking forward to not being in school anymore. It has been a long run, I'm … Continue reading 2021 Begins

So, we saved for it and at this point I think we are about finished and have managed to remain debt free. While overseas … Continue reading Getting Back Into It
