Day 237: August 27, 2014
Woke up next to my sweetheart, had a lazy morning that included bagels for breakfast, and the two of us went to the gas station and then drove to the park. We bought a couple sodas at Sun Valley and animal crackers, which Andrew and I played some games with. It was a beautiful day and the park was relaxing.
Later on in the day we picked up Renee and baked some delicious cookies. I made some snickerdoodles by myself that turned out PERFECT. My entire family was home, and we all ate dinner and played a round of 31. I was close to winning, but then Charlotte beat me. If I had played more aggressively I would have won. Oh well!

Day 236: August 26, 2014
I dropped off my sister at work, picked up Steven at the BART station, and then picked up Renee at her house. It was a gorgeous day so we walked the beach path and hung out in the shade from some trees. Then we went to the pet store and played with a cute Maltese puppy and looked at some bunnies and fish. Finally picked up Andrew at the BART station, got dinner at a sushi place called Barracuda (a girl at the restaurant said my hair looked like a mermaid’s!), and picked up Charlotte from work. Then we drove to In-N-Out so Charlotte could get some food.
It was the most I drove in one day, probably. At one point I accidentally went through a red light, which was a little terrifying. I felt really bad for Renee and Andrew who were in the car but I didn’t go through any traffic and wasn’t honked at, thank God. It freaked me out enough for me to pay more attention while driving in the future.

Day 235: August 25, 2014
I came home from Oakland a little early today because my sister needed to take the car. It worked out though. I began packing a little bit and then met up with Katie last minute who drove me to get Chinese food. We talked about her trip to China most of the time, it sounds like she had a blast. It was nice to catch up. After that I think I watched some Flight of the Conchords with my parents. I knew my mom would love that show. ;)
Day 234: Sunday, August 24, 2014
There was an earthquake at 5:30 am today. Andrew and I were in bed asleep and undressed and our whole house started shaking. It was a 6.0 I believe centered up north near Napa. My mom knocked on our doors making sure we were awake. Andrew and I just laid there and held hands. It was a little intense but not too bad. Nothing fell over. It was kind of exciting.
When we were leaving my house, Andrew realized he had lost his keys. We set out to Oakland with his spirits crushed but we still managed to make the most of our day. On our way home, we stopped by Josh B’s birthday party (he is 40!) and ate some cake. We got to his house and hung out for a bit. Then we met up with Lauren, who I hadn’t really spent time with before. She lives just around the block. She took us out to get some good burgers at the Bureau and we just chatted about our lives. I had a lot of fun!
Since Andrew lost his keys, we had to go through my aunt’s gate to get back to the house. When we were walking through, we saw my uncle Scott through the window, and he invited us in. We talked to Sarah and Scott for something like an hour, which was really nice. They live right by Andrew but I always feel awkward stopping by spontaneously, so I am glad they welcomed us in. We swapped stories and talked about how much we hate our family. xD They are really my coolest relatives. Kalen starts middle school this week. He is so old! I also got to see the baby who was sleeping the whole time. She is still recovering from her heart surgery but she seems healthy.
That day worked out just perfectly, even though we started off on the wrong foot.
