While in Palm Desert, we were finally able to eat at the Cheesecake Factory - the one in Brea always having a 2 hour wait. It lived up to expectations, and it was a nice evening. On Monday, the temperature cooled off a little bit (only 107!), and we spent most of the day at the pool. It was big, and we were able to score some great loungers under umbrellas so we didn't fry too badly. Here is LaMar in relaxation mode, all scruffy and happy. We were able to cool off and relax before heading back to the room and out for dinner.
On Tuesday morning we headed for home. We'd had a great time, but we were happy to leave the extreme heat behind. As we pulled into the driveway, I saw Scott getting out of his car in a SUIT...this and the huge smile plastered on his face could only mean one thing: he'd gotten a JOB IN ACCOUNTING! Actually, he'd been up for the same job last week, but they'd turned him down, saying they wanted someone with more experience. I don't know quite what happened, but today they called him back and he got the job! Major excitement! So it's been a weekend of great highs and wonderful happenings.
This afternoon Mia and Katie came over. It was disorganized - I was still putting things away and doing wash, but it was so wonderful to grab that little girl and give her many hugs and kisses. She is adorable, and I'm looking forward to many fun days with her the rest of the week. Stay tuned.
