The week before last, Lyle and I took a trip out to San Diego to visit friends there. It was our first time back since we moved away last summer, and it was bittersweet. Several things had changed–one of my favorite restaurants was no longer there, kids are all older, there are lots of new babies–and it made me kind of sad to see that everything’s still going on there without me around to be a part of it.
I did, however, manage to bring back some things to help remind me of that place…namely as many Trader Joe’s Indian dinners as I could fit in my suitcase. I used to eat these at least 3 times a week for lunch. Why are there no Trader Joe’s in Houston???
These two spent a lot of time playing “mail,” putting toys and other objects back and forth through the mail slot in the wall.
