Things To Do In San Diego: December 18-19, 2013

I've been talking about the approach of the holidays, but it didn't really occur to me just how close we are to Christmas until yesterday, when I realized Darren's family is coming to town on Saturday and that I'll be stuck working the Raiders game alone on Sunday. My Christmas tree hasn't been decorated save for one string of lights and a lone ornament- a small velvet frame with a picture of Pascha from when she was about 3 years old. It's pretty lonely here without her, and poor Kiwi keeps looking under the bed and mewing for her missing sister. But, I have to say I'm happy overall. The other night, some freaking psychotic and reckless cops were in pursuit dangerously fast on Main Street in Chula Vista during rush hour and I had my nieces and god-sister in the car with me and we avoided being t-boned by mere seconds. Since we avoided collision, it seems no big deal, but I have a vivid flash of how it looked coming right at me before I slammed on the gas to get through the intersection and out of the way. I'm a little more appreciative that I get to enjoy a bounty of love with family and friends this holiday week.
