So long San Diego..

2 Oct

We visited SD this past weekend.. I have lived there for almost 3 years so being there brought back a lot
of memories.
Great moments:
1. Checking out the cottage at idylwild, eating icecream sundaes, cooking pasta with family, watching a
little movie, walk to downtown and drinking coffee at a hippie coffee
2. Oh, being sooooooo excited at seeing pappu , P and S the first night.
3. Watching a little bit of a realllly bad scifi movie. Especially having company since R hates the genre.
4. Eating P’s home food on sunday.
5. Hanging out at starbucks by La Jolla and enjoying beautiful SD weather. I was teary eyed and
nostalgic since this particular store was on the way to my ex office.
6. Playing silly games with my sweet niece.

Blah moments:
1. Extreme heat on the way back.
2. Ani hurting her nose and bleeding .
3. Ani got fever on sun morning. She is yet to get well despite being given acetaminophen every certain hours. R and I are still feeling bad about this. It is so disheartening to see her dull 😦

All said and done I miss family. Especially my darling niece. I’ve held her and played with her so much when she was little and just the idea of having fun with her is beyond exciting. I am always pleasantly surprised with something new that has learned.

The wonderful thing about it is that one doesn’t need material things or
external stimulus to be happy…just the idea of being near my family makes me content. Here is to hoping
for more such times together.

    SD, especially UTC/La Jolla area makes everyone feel at home! Instead of “so long..”, we bring to mind predawn bird calls, trees at Balboa Park, Coronado bridge, planes landing in downtown airport and such happy images

    We loved having all of you over. Just too bad Ani was feeling blue 😦
    Pappu was devastated when you guys left. This is the first time she has ever felt this bad. We always thought she will grow up to be this happy-go-lucky gal but after all she is our daughter. How could she be anything else!!!

    Appa mentioned about happy thoughts, how does one hold on to happy thoughts and yet say goodbye… you know what I mean?

        I typed a giant comment and it certainly wasn’t random @’s.
        P, I was so upset on the flight back home. Also was surprised at Pappu’s sad tone when I spoke to her from the car but like you said she takes after her parents .
        I think appa advocates the idea of trying to hold on to positive memories. He always tells me to keep trying and trying until one day it comes as a habit.
