Not a TV Star Today...

My friend who is a TV producer invited me out to San Diego for the week to be an extra on one of her TV programs.  I was only going to be used for dramatizations, you weren't actually going to see my face, but still, it was going to be cool.  Oh, but show biz is a tricky lady...the interview was on again, off again, on again and finally off completely, so I was out.  There's the downer of the week.

The uppers are quite cool.  While I spent alot of time by myself out in San Diego, I was away from my kids and my husband and, pretty much, did what I wanted to!  I haven't been away from my whole family for over 5 years (though I have gone on many trips with just my husband).  My husband has been begging me to go away, so when this opportunity presented itself, he was the first to say, "yes!"

I went to a museum by myself and didn't have to rush.  I had a leisurely lunch and read an entire book during the middle of the day (The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane).  I had a special tour at the San Diego Zoo where I fed and pet Galapagos Tortoises, Akapis and camels...I saw grey whales spouting water out of their blowholes (from afar), I went kayaking in the Pacific Ocean and saw seals and sea lions in the cool!

While I was here for some of San Diego's coldest and rainiest weather, I still missed the blizzard in New Jersey and dealing with the kids out of school for two days.  I thought my husband was going to lose his mind for two days!

I am ready to see my kids.  I miss them terribly.  I miss my husband terribly too.  


  1. What a cool trip in a weird way. I'm glad you got to do it. That husband is a keeper!! ;-)

  2. Next time, can I come with you? :-)
