Time for an Update

As you can imagine, things are pretty hectic.

Both parents are doing pretty well under the circumstances. My son, Carsten, arrived safely and together we visit them daily. My mom is having a good week... talking a lot (though it's nearly impossible to understand her) and dad isn't doing too bad either, but not enough to come home.

When we're not visiting, we are filling up our days with favorite activities. Y'all know how I love air shows (not)... well, the one weekend we're here, the local air base at Miramar (Top Gun fame) had it's big air show and Casten and I decided on Saturday to go. You don't get to visit that air base often AND get to see such great performances like the Blue Angels and Snow Birds of Canada. Fantastic! Yes, we took tons of pictures but I can't post any until I get home and on my own computer.

On Sunday we went to Balboa Park to see if my old dance group is still there.... they are! But... the group is getting older and smaller. It was nice to see them and I even danced a few dances with them.

Afterward we went down to the ocean.... another of our MUST stops when in San Diego.

The weather was nice on the weekend but lousy since! It's cold and rainy and not what it should be! grrrrrrr

The rest of the time we've spent shopping, visiting, and other odd stuff. Carsten leaves Thursday evening, I leave coming Saturday.

Now I'm about to drive off and meet up with a couple of former high school class mates!

More next week when I get home....



  1. Happy that your visit is going well.
    Blessings on your family.

  2. Hmmm, I would be all over the coast in San Diego. Bring a wetsuit and surfboard. Oh man....

    Hope your parents are faring well...I hope you are too.


  3. it is POURING rain today!! aaarrrrgggghhhhhh

    thanks Larry!

    Bobby, I'm doing well for sure. I's hard to see the folks in their state, but at their age it is something to be expected.....

  4. I have been thinking of you. Glad you were able too make the trip home.

  5. Enjoy the rest of your trip and I know that even though the circumstances of your trip wasn't ideal that it sounds like y'all are making the most of it all.

  6. Glad you are having a good time, and that your parents are doing well under the circumstances. Take care Dorrie. :-)


  7. Hi Dorrie :) Oh I'm so glad to read that both of your parents are okay, under the circumstances.

    I smiled a big smile :D when I read about your dancing. :)

    I'm happy Carsten and you are visiting together to see your parents and also that you both are having a nice time. *hugs* and praying

  8. Hi! I feel so lost. What has been going on with your parents? From the comments it sounds like they are doing better. :) I may be coming to San Diego in 2011. Not quite sure when yet. I just wanted to drop by and say hello. I am back to blogging and it feels so good. *HUGS*
