Ketchup and Catch-up

I spent the weekend (Thursday through Sunday) in lovely San Diego for my step-niece's wedding. Just me and Hubby, we left the kids home. This is the first time we've gotten away together for a few years. It was wonderful.

We ordered room service breakfast on Friday morning, and Hubby's hash browns came with the cutest ketchup bottles I've ever seen. I brought them home.

Then we went to Sea World and saw Shamu.

No trainers were killed during the show, so that was good. And for future reference, those of you considering the dolphin show: be warned! It's not so much a dolphin show as it is a show of men and women wearing fancy wetsuits and sparkly make up spinning on ropes and standing around pointing their toes while mediocre environmentalist music plays and the fountains spurt water. Meh.

(Stay tuned for more exciting adventures of the San Diego trip when I tell the story of how we were trapped on Shutter Island.)

So now, thanks to the California trip and some emergency revisions for a MS under consideration, I'm behind about 7,000 words in NaNo. I don't know if I can catch up. But I'm gonna try.


  1. That's good that no trainers were killed. They've had a problem with that lately.

  2. I can't wait to hear all about your trip! Looks like fun!

  3. @ Michael: We noticed that this time none of the trainers actually got in the water with the whales. I don't know if that's a change in policy or just the way the show goes.

    @Brooke: The trip was great. But after we were home for one hour, all the kids wanted Jen back. :)

  4. Hi there,
    I am just popping by to say "hello" from alex's PIF Bloghop. It's taken me a while to get here as there are so many, so I am trying to do a few at a time. Awesome blog. And great to connect with all you great fellow bloggers.
    Eve :)

  5. When we went to California last year, we kept the room service cute little bottles of ketchup too!!!

    I love Shamu. I don't know why, but I adore that whale! (I know there's more than one, but they all look the same to me).

    And again, congrats about the MS being considered by you know who. I'm so proud of you!!!
