This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.
This day was really weird, nothing went as planned. It started really good though with a couple of hours of beach volleyball. There is a list by the courts, when your name is up you can win three games in a row and then you have to get off the court. I played with a guy named Chad this morning and I’ve never played as well as today with him. Our two first game we won and then suddenly the wind came and totally messed with my head and we lost big time. Our fourth game was the same and after that I didn’t want to play anymore. So I sat down for a while watchin other people play and a flying pelican pooped on me, gross!
I did play more anyway and I’m glad I did. I didn’t play as well as before and it was with another guy, but we won two games before I had to go to San Diego and a weight loss clinic.
It’s not as is sounds. I went there with Sarah because they used vitamin B12 injections. I told them about my medical condition and they said it was no problem at all for me to get the shots. I got my first out of 15 today actually. We are gonna kickstart it and do it pretty often the first month and then less often. It’s gonna be around $200 in total for the rest of the year, but I think I don’t have a choice.
After that we went to IKEA to buy tickets to the Swedish Midsummer Smörgåsbord in June. On the website it said that the tickets were on sale now, but when we got there they told us they were gonna start selling them on Tuesday. I’m not sure that I have enough time in the afternoon. According to google maps I have plenty of time, but I don’t know about the traffic and how long it’s gonna take while I’m there. We are around 6 people (not just Swedish) going, so that’s nice!
Lunch at IHOP and then we drove up to Del Mar to pick up another au pair. We were going to Coronado for our sunset kayaking tour. Unfortunately there had been a misunderstanding, we thought it was gonna start at 6pm, but it was 5pm so Karin and Victoria didn’t make it. They had mine and Sarah’s voucher so we couldn’t go either. But we did reschedule to June 16th.
Later they invited me and Sarah to Victorias house for dinner and a movie. We made pesto chicken which was really good, and then we also baked swedish mudpie served with whipped cream and strawberries. The movie we watched was What to Expect When Expecting. It’s a fun movie.
Now I am home and am gonna fall asleep as soon as my head hits the pillow in two minutes…
