The wife and I just returned from a weekend trip to Los Angeles. It was quite a bit of fun; we got to visit family and friends (that's all I could find at the moment, weak), our old church, our old neighborhood, and even do a little celebrity-sighting at LAX. The only bad part of the trip was when Jessica came down with food poisoning / stomach flu right before Jay Leno came on stage at the Comedy and Magic Club. We rushed her to the emergency room because it was pretty serious, but she's feeling much better now, thankfully. Our flights on Southwest were late going in both directions, but were otherwise uneventful.
All in all it was a very relaxing, rejuvenating trip. You never appreciate your family as much as when you live too far away to see them every day. Going back was very nostalgic and somewhat melancholy, because we had a lot of good times in Los Angeles and there are so many people we care about there. I'm sure we'll be visiting again really soon.
Get ready for a flurry of short posts as I put up a few things that have been on my mind over the past few days.
