San Sebastian Spain

On with the European vacation recaps!

After spending 3 days in Barcelona, we took a plane over to San Sebastian.  It was a relatively quick flight (I believe it was about an hour) but when we arrived, there was not a bus in site. For OVER an hour.  Now let me back up and mention that our hotel (as well as many hotels and travel sites) recommend taking the bus from the tiny commuter airport since it's a relatively easy commute and about 1/4 of the price of a taxi. But for some reason there was not a bus in sight! And to make matters worse, the airport was so small that they pretty much closed up after our flight landed. Cuz we were the ONLY flight of the morning (maybe even day). Some passengers got weary and just took a taxi. In the end we got tired of it too and did the same.

Our hotel was pretty old school and it had this cool elevator that reminded me of something from Disneyland's Haunted Mansion for some reason.

Forever and a day...

Hi! Feels like an eternity since I've been on here.  So much has been going on and I feel awful for neglecting my blog.  I've missed reading all of your blogs too! So here's a quick recap of all the things going on:

1. We're REMODELING! Yup, that's right. our home is a big dusty mess (and will remain one for 3 months).  As of last week the kitchen is no more! Where once stood cabinets and counter tops is now one huge void.  And we have plastic drop sheets all over the house. It's seriously like a scene out of Contagion or something.  Meals have consisted of Subway sandwiches and Trader Joe's salads and entrees. Quite frankly I'm starting to miss a good home cooked meal.

2. I signed up for my first full marathon on a whim. Well, somewhat of a whim. I've been teetering back and forth about whether or not I really want to do it and the hubsters pointed out that there was a special one day only discount. So I did it.  Oh dear god what did I do?! So now most of my mornings consist of training for the race. Here's to 20 weeks of training!

3. A little bit of sad news.  We lost our dear rabbit over the holidays.  It was an especially tough time for me as it happened very suddenly.  It took a long time for me not to feel sad every time I thought about him or every time someone asked how he was doing and then I would have to tell them what happened. 

That's pretty much all that's been going on.  I just haven't had the energy to blog or work on creating new pieces of jewelry for my Etsy shop until now.  I feel horrible for neglecting it for so long but I'm also very glad to be back now!  I still need to finish my Europe recap! sheesh! Talk about procrastinating. I'm going to post our San Sebastian pictures next time *promise*.

I'm going to leave you with a few pictures of our little bun bun.  We loved him very much and will always remember all the good times we had together.
