For the trip redux, we killed ourselves and had a great time doing it!!! It was so fun!!! It was one thing after another. In 3 days it was: little Italy, street fun, theater at the Orpheum with Les Miserables, Cable Cars, going down big hills, Muir Woods, Salsilito, Ghost Tour of Pacific Heights, bay cruise, and of course a goodbye lunch on the wharf. The best of the trip is hard to say. The food is amazing!!!! I love great food. We got to just do a lot of the arts and I love the water. I've been all over the world and this is just my favorite place.
The best part really though wasn't anything that we did or bought. This has been a crummy year and it has been hard on Chris and I. Just spending time together like we did was very special. It has been a really hard year on me, but one thing I hadn't realized is how hard it has been on my husband. We argued a little but we came home a with a better understanding of our own personal Hell that has been this year. I didn't realize how bad things were for him at work; and I should know this but I didn't. The pressure he has felt trying to be Superman at the office and at home with me recovering was devastating to him. I guess I have been sort of caught up in my own world and hadn't really thought about this enough. He realized some of the things I've been going through and why I get frustrated with him. He hadn't walked a lot in my shoes either and it has been hard for me. I think it was a an eye opener for both of us and it made us realize how we need to be more there for one another.
Trips are fun. Restaurants are good. The ocean is WONDERFUL!!! But really the biggest reason why we have always done these trips is b/c it gives us a chance to turn off the cell phones, drop the babies off at Gualita's, and really figure out who each other is. We kiss, we get romantic, and we reconnected. The storms are coming again but we were blessed with just a really sweet beautiful time to have some fun and get on the same page. That was the best part.
