San Diego and Hollywood

San Diego was amazing.  I love my girlfriends.  I loved every second of my time away.  And I've loved being back.  I love that Grace spent 2 whole days believing that the star fish i gave her was alive.  (she asked if it was real and i said yes....didn't realize that to her real = alive..). She has since figured it out...i think...  Eliza was not only disinterested in me upon my return, but she CRIED when i tried to give her a hug.  I think Abby must have sensed my sadness, 'cuase she has told me at least 8 times "i missed you so much when you were gone."  I have no photos to share yet...but hopefully will soon.

I didn't get to see my brother Kevin while I was there. He's in L.A. and we had a pretty tightly packed schedule.  But i don't feel so bad 'cause i get to see him tomorrow (wed)--ON T.V.!!!!!!!  
He's going to be on Law and Order: Los Angeles.  He plays an attorney named Robert Schuler, and he'll be  in acts 3 and 4.  He's tall, dark and handsy--you won't miss him!.  Check him out on IMDB so you'll recognize him.

Have I mentioned how much I like watching these two together?

Almost as much as i like watching these two.

Eliza is seriously obsessed with her dad.  Most days she's pretty calm about her daddy-obsession.  But if you catch her on a bad day--she's a wreck over him!  She gets all girly and emotional if he doesn't pay just the right amount of attention to her.  And if he dares spend time with her sisters when she feels he should be with her, she throws herself on the ground, and cries and cries.  It's actually kind of cute.  And when we (or he) leave town, or Reid works late and she doesn't see him for a couple days, his return renders her emotionally unhinged.  Also kind of cute.

On a different note, I am leaving tonight for a little 3-day mommy get-a-way.  We're going to CA...and I honestly don't think San Diego is gonna know what hit it.  I'm really excited about the trip.  But i'm also surprised at how sad I am to leave my lil' family.  Things have been much better at our house lately. (thank you, again, for your advice and prayers!)  And i'm enjoying all of these people so much, i don't really need a break from them right now!  Shoulda planned this trip for a few weeks ago....really coulda used it then.  But it's going to be great, and refreshing.  And Reid will have yet another chance put to practice his mad stay-at-home-dad skills.  I'm so glad that he's so good at it.  It gives me just one less thing to worry about....since i come up with plenty of things to worry about all on my own.

And we shall see, upon my return, if Eliza melts into a puddle of anguish and despair as she realizes how much she desperately missed me.   

I kinda doubt it.

For all my fellow Coloradoans...

Tonight Grace was playing pretend at the dinner table. I didn't hear the first part, but tuned in just in time to hear that the "princess in distress" was indeed the daughter of the royal King Sooper.

I almost wet my pants.
