Great news!

My parents called me yesterday to tell me that I will be going to see them soon. They’ve booked flights and will come and visit us in June. I am so thrilled!

Of course, when I realized that it was April 1st, my first question was: This is not – a very bad – April Fools’ joke, or is it?? I declared furiously that this is something you shouldn’t joke about. I think they didn’t even realize in their excitement that telling me the news on April Fools’ Day wasn’t the wisest decision ;) Of course, it was NOT a joke. They’ll be arriving at LAX on June 21… this is in 81 days! OMG! I couldn’t be any happier! It’ll be so great to have them here with us and my cousin, oh my gosh, I can’t even imagine how excited he must be. He just turned 16 and it’ll be his first flight and his first visit to the US. He must be going nuts ;)

The weekend was kind of quiet. I did some grocery shopping on Saturday and went for a walk. Yesterday we met Andreas again for a couple of hours, because he was going to fly home to Switzerland today.
We picked him up at his hotel close to the airport and went to the beach in Santa Monica. He invited us for dinner on the Pier and we went to a relatively newly-opened “Bubba Gump’s” :) I was so excited that we have it here in Santa Monica now. We took my parents to the “Bubba Gump” in Monterey in 2004 and they loved it… so there is one place I am definitely going to take them this summer!

Today has been just “going by”… I am not in the greatest mood today despite the great news… thanks to PMS [without the P].
