Another great week…
Monday was such a great day. I took Robby for cruise through the lagoon and we were on our way to the wharf when Heather texted me to meet her for lunch and a movie, she wanted to take me for my birthday. We decided on a restaurant downtown, I think it's kind of Indian/Persian. They put pomegranate seeds on everything. Teresa and I had groupons so we had been there before and it was awesome. They didn't let us down this time either. Heather had mentioned that it was my birthday so they brought this really awesome dessert and the guy put a candle in it and lit it and wished me a happy birthday, I thought that was so sweet. After lunch we went over to the nickelodeon theater, they have a lot of independent films there and I love that place. We saw a movie called moonrise kingdom, it was an odd movie but very good… we both enjoyed it a lot. I took Robby for a cruise down to the wharf and back then it was time to go to bed and just reflect on such a great day. For breakfast I had a poached egg and English muffin, for lunch I had Pomegranate eggplant, saffron basmati rice, chard, caramelized onions, qurut yogurt and for dinner I had sockeye salmon, chard and grilled eggplant.
I LOVE having company, I love having people come and visit me and feel comfortable and at home but for some reason I always get really nervous. I don’t know if it’s because I think that I have to entertain them and they are not going to have a good time or what. I was explaining this to my brother in a private message and it just dawned on me that I am nervous when I have company and I never even realized it. I’m the same way about leaving my house. I love cruising around Santa Cruz and having something to do but for some reason my mind is always on getting back home, I don’t know why that is either. It’s getting easier and I’m starting to enjoy it more and more. When my cousin and her husband came here last year I wanted to do a lot of things with them and we did do a lot of fun stuff, I don’t know why we didn’t do more because we can. This year I have a list of everything that I want to do and I’m really excited about getting out there and doing it. I can’t believe I am finally growing up, I think it’s because I always had somebody to tell me what to do so left on my own I don’t know what to do. Now that I realize it I can really work on it. I had a couple of childhood friends come to visit me, one stayed here for a couple of nights and the other one stayed with her family close by. I really had such a good time with them and I didn’t want it to end.
