I'm here in Auburn visiting my family and contemplating about life in general.  I took day trip to SJ to look at a potential place to live and catch up with some friends.  Peter got to meet a few of my friends and, luckily,  he likes them.  We had a fun time.  I am happy at the thought of seeing those friends more often.  

I am having better feelings about moving than before.  But my health still isn't 100%, and I still don't know what's wrong with me.  Mornings are great, I feel perfectly fine for a few hours.  Then after lunch I just crash.  I get so overwhelmingly tired that I almost can't function.  I have to sit down or lie down and close my eyes, maybe sleep a little.  It's very strange.  It doesn't happen every day, but when it does there's nothing I can do to control it.  Eating doesn't help, drinking juice doesn't help, caffeine doesn't help.  Tylenol or Advil helps a little but not enough.  It's very frustrating.  I'm not sure how I will be able to be in school full-time, but I will think about that when the time comes.  I will need to remind myself to try to take it easy and not over work myself.  

ANYWAY, on a better note, here are some pics of my vacation in NorCal...

Peter got tired in the car

A horrible sketch I did while waiting for Peter to finish working.  I'm not good with colored pencils...

Cute baby!

Some things you only see in Old Sac

Wild blackberry picking on Rich's farm (cobbler to come)

She was upset she couldn't go berry picking.  Or maybe because she has an eye infection.  :(


  1. I'm so glad I could go with you on all these adventures!

  2. Are you still looking for places to live? My apartment has an opening in the master bedroom, or I'm looking for a roommate.. :)


Thanks for reading. I'd love to know what you think. Please leave a comment!
