I’m pretty understanding that at this point in my life, taking a vacation is a luxury that I shouldn’t be able to have. But in a few years, when funds aren’t so tight, I have a long list of places that I’d like to visit and people I’d love to see. So when I was planning for my dads wedding in Napa in October I felt so grateful that I could even afford to take a few days off of a brand new job to fly to California and spend time with my family and my best friend. And even though things didn’t always go perfectly to plan and I didn’t get to see everyone that I wanted to see (darn California traffic!) everything went so smoothly! It was the perfect tiny trip.
Totally off topic, but last week I made an (very) early morning trip to the dentist which was right under the Space Needle. While I was waiting for my appointment to begin I almost started to tear up thinking about how I was so lucky to have insurance while so many people don’t have the ability to get their teeth cleaned or their gums checked. I was even able to have the dentist fix something that has bothered me my entire life… within a matter of seconds!
Bat(ter) Mobile! We dropped off an order to Pixar! Even though we came in through a side entrance and didn’t get to see much, I was still able to sneak a peak of the main building where they host their parties and celebrations. I totally geeked out thinking about how many amazingly talented, genius people have been in that room. The best of the film business. And I was there!
