Yesterday started out a little hectic. I’m not quite sure what the deal was and how I ended up being in a terrible mood.
I woke up around 7:00 am to take the kids to school. It was raining in Los Angles. When this happens it’s really stressful driving, because when the rain comes down people freak out in their cars and just cannot drive. Very frustrating. I don’t understand why people have this problem here. It’s just rain people. No need to get in a panic.
Kids were driving me crazy, ” Hurry Up MOM” Ugh.
Then all sorts of little things happen, I stepped and then slid into one of Bennie’s chocolate gifts, if you know what I mean. I mean ReallY?? Good God. A whole bunch of other not so fun things happened, which I won’t get into. And besides I know you want to hear about only the good stuff.
So that’s when I decided if I hang around, I’m probably going to end up in tears. So I decided to drag my husband to see ” Due Date” to change my mood. I give the movie a sideways thumb. So So. But it did manage to get me out of my funk. A few laughs here and there…along with popcorn and candy. That certainly helps.
Then we went to the west side to be by the sea. I new that’s what my soul needed. The seals,the sea, some jumping dolphins and the sunset. Beauty, that’s what we needed a good dose of. So we went to MoonShadows in Malibu, a touristy place right on the sea. With a Mai Tia in hand, we watched the sunset. It was beautiful.
My husband and I are always on the hunt for historical bars in Los Angles. So while catting around in Santa Monica, we spotted The Chey Jay. We were drawn in by the neon and the frozen in time aspect of the place, but had no idea what a piece of history Jay’s Place really is. This little resturanut bar was found in 1959 and was frequented by an endless list of show business icons including Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Marlon Brando, Lee Marvin, Robert Stack, Natalie Wood, Warren Beatty, Elizabeth Taylor just to name a few. It’s a tiny little place and a great discovery.
We did good. We turned our day around and made it one of the best days off I’ve had in a while.
Note to self. Do it more often, tiny day vacations. LIVE!
I hope this inspired you.
