What I DId Last Friday

Last Friday the hubby took Joe-Ash to San Pablo to visit an independent living center for the blind - called the Hatlen Center for the Blind - their motto is Teaching Independence Through Independent Living.

At the last minute I decided to go with them. And take P'Headro. So I called into work, at the last minute, in tears, because I really don't do things like that, and off we all went to the Bay Area.

We got there early and I had to go to Starbucks to go potty. There was this street sign and we got photo ops with P'Headro with the sign in the background, to prove we were really there.

We did the tour. It's a great program. Joe-Ash filled out an application. He may be able to get into the program by mid-May. Yay!

Rather than going home, we went into San Francisco, because I wanted to go to a beach. We found a beach, China Beach, very close to the Golden Gate Bridge. I'd never been there before.
