last day in San Diego
We are in San Diego for the last day. I need to check us out of our hotel, and go to Cindy’s house to pack the van. People come at about 11:30 local time to clean out the rest of the things for recycling or trash. And then we will clean as much as we can. I want to leave the city by 5pm. We need to make Las Vegas by tonight. We also meet some old friends for lunch. I did not sleep well last night. I’m really very tired. I’ve been running on adrenalin and coffee. The adrenaline has run out. The pot luck last night was really wonderful. Sue first of all did such an amazing job cooking, and setting everything up. She is so great! I’m so blessed to have spent so much time with her over this past weekend. Nicole and I built the garden for her. But guests finally did arrive and they helped allot. And it was so cool to see some of them get their hands dirty and show such an active interest in gardening. We had seeds available to give them. And some of them spent an hour picking out seeds to take home to try. And Nicole painted Sue a rain barrel. She forgot her paint brushes at the hotel, so she used an old toothbrush. And I think it turned out cool considering the amount of time she had to paint it in (less then one hour) and with a tooth brush. And I had friends at the party I have not seen in so many years. Friends from my days at SDSU, Oregon State, and even one girl friend from high school I have not seen for over 30 years. I felt like hugging them all, all night. It really was a sweet reunion. I’m still having trouble getting money from the bank. I’m going to have to go inside a bank today and try to get cash. This is a concern. And I’m tired. And this whole process is very hard for Cindy. So please pray for us as we try to finish up here and finally get going. Nicole is doing wonderfully. She is making me very proud. But she is also very tired. So pray for her too. I’m sorry I am so slow to blog. It has been so much, I hardly have time. But I’ll try to do better.
