Full Circle

We had been spending a considerable amount of time in Redwood City, both seeing my friend and taking the car to a mechanic’s shop. It also seems that the more time you spend out and about the more you eat out. We hit some yummy restaurants during our stay; specifically pancake houses and sushi, haha :)

It was so great to catch up with my friend too; we used to compete in Pony Club together in high school.

ISI Adult Championships

Here is the culmination of the hard work of the last few months.

ISI Adult National Championships at Yerba Buena Skating Rink in San Francisco, California. I only entered 2 events, but some others I met entered up to 19 events! WHOA. My family was there to support me and watch me skate. I also got to see some friends from Florida that I used to skate with in Tampa. The whole event was pretty low-key, not like USFS competitions at all.

Eighteen Year Anniversary

Since we were in the Bay area for our anniversary, we decided to go to one of our favorite restaurants for dinner. Mr S was at a sleepover and Mr T was babysitting Divagirl so we had a date night at Shabuway in San Mateo. Shabu shabu, for those who may not know, is a delicious Japanese meal brought out to you raw, then you cook the veggies and ultra thin slices of meat in a boiling pot of seasoned broth. Then you dip the cooked bits in sauces and eat it with rice. Yum!

Afterwards, the smell of chocolate drew us across the street to a chocolate shop filled with handmade tasty treats. She even had samples of chocolate covered strawberries. The confections we tried we amazing!

We don’t often get the opportunity to have an evening out together without the children, so this was a lovely night.

Japantown

Jason and I spent the day in Japantown in San Francisco. It’s such a neat area, you really ought to check it out if you’ve never been. It’s compact, about 2 blocks near Geary and Webster, and it has a parking garage (this is key in San Francisco).

Jason had several meetings, so he camped out with his MiFi and during lunch we explored the shops.

Foster City Fun

The great thing about visiting places you used to live is that you are familiar with the area and have services established. Which meant that this was going to be a very busy time!

I was way overdue for my bloodwork labs, but since my doctor is in CA and the last time I had labs done I was in FL and it caused a major communication breakdown, so I decided to wait until CA. Best thing is that my doctor’s office now draws their own blood and the phlebotomist did an awesome job! No bruising or anything!
