Summer in October

What a weekend! And now, there are only 12 more before Hawaii. It’s so crazy!

Yesterday morning I played beachvolley for the first time in four weeks. I was afraid that I was gonna be horrible but it’s like riding a bike, you never really forget it. I played a lot and it was seriously the perfect day to be at the beach. Blue sky, hardly any wind and a comfortable temperature. And it’s October! The weather now, except in the mornings and evening, are like the Swedish summer, it’s so weird but I’m not complaining, not at all!

After several hours of playing I got hungry so Chad took me to lunch and then we did some shopping at the Carlsbad outlet mall. I was a good girl and didn’t buy anything.

In the evening we had a double date with his brother and sister in law. Escape Plan at Cinépolis Luxury Cinemas. I’ve been there for so I knew what to expect and it was as nice this time with the leather seats and seats you could recline. The movie was really good too! I didn’t have any expectations, but I can’t really say I’m a big fan of Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger, but Escape Plan was well worth seeing! It was about a guy, Stallone, who broke out of jails for a living.

The evening wasn’t done after the movie. Our next stop was a bar in Encinitas where we met up with two other couples for a while. I was really tired, but it was still nice.

A little sleep in this morning, breakfast burrito in San Marcos and the rest of the day I spent in Chad’s bed reading/sleeping. I don’t know why I was so tired today… At 4pm we packed the car with two wetsuits and two surfing boards. I could borrow one of his brothers long boards, very nice of him! The waves were small, perfect for me but too tiny for Chad so I’m not sure he had as much fun as I had. We didn’t have time for so many waves since I had my LCC meeting at 7pm. But I stood up once for about 2-3 seconds. Unfortunately Chad didn’t see, but it still happened :).

My LCC meeting this month was at the Scream Zone at the Del Mar Fairgrounds, where the San Diego County Fair was in the summer. I wasn’t excited at all since I hate being scared. And what I hate more than that is to pay for getting scared shitless… But I had to so I paid the $15 and went on the Haunted Hayride with like half my group. I texted Lovisa this afternoon asking if she wanted to go with me and she wanted to. And when we met up outside she gave me some Marabou chocolate, so very sweet of her!! I was really glad she came, it would have been embarrassing screaming that much with people I didn’t really know. I don’t think I’ve seen half of the girls in my au pair group, we are so many now, like 15! Anyway, the haunted hayride was a bunch of people sitting on a loading platform full of hay being dragged by a four wheel thingy. I sat with my back against the edge and pretty close to it. A big mistake! The ride went on what felt like forever. A lot of people running up to us scaring the crap out of us. They didn’t touch us but were so close all the time. First we went through a zombie area, which was the scariest and longest part, then a clown/toy area that wasn’t too bad, and then I was too scared to pay any more attention to what was going on. The only thing I noticed was when people came up, breathing or screaming in my neck. I was laughing, and I guess it was kinda funny, but I screamed like a little girl all the time. The only one screaming as much as me was my LCC, haha! I wonder why she wanted to have the meeting there when she hates scary stuff.

Anyway, now I’m home, eating the rest of my pumpkin pecan cheesecake from Friday. I think I will be able to sleep without any nightmares.
