Though my day started waaay too early this morning with a 6:00 a.m. call from someone at work who both forgot I was on vacation and that I’d travelled from Suburbia to California, making it two hours earlier for me than for him, I managed to regroup and go back to sleep until another call from work at a little after 8:00 a.m. So much for a leisurely start to my first day off in a while.
The early wake-up allowed me to spend some quality time with my brother who was taking morning baby duty. He even treated me to an omelet while I held my new, snugly little nephew. Once we’d finished breakfast and hung out a while (and I’d fielded several more calls from work), my brother took me for a walking tour around his Pasadena, California neighborhood, including the Obama headquarters.
We then returned home to pick up my sister-in-law for lunch and some shopping. I’m proud to report that I scored some major bargains at a closeout sale and will have some new things to wear for work when I return. It’s been a fun day, and I’ll post some pictures once I’m home and have the ability to upload them.
