Sunday's Story

What a week! Getting things situated with my brother even though it's been by phone has been exhausting to say the least. The California weather has once again taken a turn and it feels like summer is back with temps in the 90's,  What happened to Fall? 

The hubby had to travel to Austin for meetings on Wednesday,  an overnight stay turned into a 2 night stay. After scrambling to find a flight home on Friday to make it to the Rodger Hodgson concert Friday night in Rancho Mirage, we managed to get one into Palm Springs International @7 pm ( This worked out well, being only 10 minutes from hotel and venue)

After checking in to hotel we headed downstairs for the show, ordered a much needed drink, took a deep breath and enjoyed the next few hours listening to this amazing performer sing songs that reminded me of younger days. I grew up listening to Supertramp,. My brother went to school with the drummer and knew members of the band personally.  Hearing Breakfast In America, Lord Is It Mine, Hide In Your Shell and Logical Song took us both back in time, it was really a great show!

We returned home yesterday after a late check out, picked up our puppy from the doggie hotel and spent the rest of the afternoon relaxing.

Today I am proud to say my son in-law at this very moment is running The Marine Corps Marathon in Washington DC, I've heard the east coast is getting hit rather hard so I know he's running like a Hurricane is coming (Hurricane Sandy) GO ALEX!! 

Talked with my daughter (Marine Wife, Mommy & Life) its been raining pretty hard in NC, she and the boys didn't make the trip to DC because of the storm and are keeping dry inside getting ready to carve Halloween pumpkins, cheering Daddy on via the internet and cell phone.
The hubby and I are set to watch some Sunday Football "Go Eagles"! =)
Well that about wraps up my week here in Sunny So. Cal. I'm looking forward to the adventures of the week ahead. Have a great day everyone =) Life is Good!
