If you are drawing a blank, I don't blame you. It has been weeks since I blogged by now even my mother has abandoned reading. I am sure my face and silly ramblings are fading quietly into the oblivion of your mind. I am assuming this because that is how I seem to feel.
These past six weeks have been pretty tough for me. My aunt and my abuela both died. I had to go help my father recover from carotid artery surgery and now both Van and I are sick. So peace and quiet are all that I really want. Well that and chocolate.....and wine.....and a hot bubble bath....and sleep.
Despite all the sadness, there have been several brightspots. First, the shopping portion of my trip was phenomenal. I am officially a size 10! I chowed down on yummy Chinese food and got to gorge myself with Spanish Drunken Goat Cheesee. I was able to fit in a quick visit to my great aunt and uncle in California. One evening was spent with the amazing women of Long Beach SnB. Let's not forget the afternoon spent dancing to a live swing band at the senior center. And I even got to tickle my Vietnamese food fancy with spring rolls and pho. So it hasn't been all bad.
So try not to forget me. I am still here just a little tired, phlegmy and hopeful.
