For Christmas, I got Brian tickets to see Phantom of the Opera in San Francisco. Tuesday, we drove up, just the two of us!
There was a weird mix up at the hotel when we went to check in. There was a reservation for a Brian Bernard (same last name). Brian insisted that he middle name is not Bernard, but there was not another reservation under his name. So we took this one. There was a not in the computer that there was a gift bag for this reservation. We looked at each other. Maybe this was not our reservation. The guy brought the bag and asked if I wanted to look in it; so I did.
Well, this bag was definitely for me! Inside, there was a bag of chips, a jar of salsa, some dark chocolate cookies and mini margaritas. (Cue the music...these are a few of my favorite things) There was also a note from my friend Nora welcoming us to San Francisco. What a thoughtful idea. Thanks Nora!
Unfortunately, I caught some stomach bug and woke up the next morning feeling miserable. We had planned to meet up with Nora and explore the Academy of Science. Sorry we missed that, maybe next time. Instead, I stayed in bed as long as possible, then we came home.
I went to bed early and Brian woke me up in time to have cider with the kids. What a way to ring in the new year. It can only get better, right?
