Who Knew Trip Planning Could be so Hard?

It's been so long since I've been anywhere that I forgot all the work that goes into planning a trip. What makes this trip to Los Angeles and Las Vegas so much more stressful is that it is all happening at the last minute and I am scrambling from finding flights that fit with el Cubano's work schedule (so he can pick me up and take me to the airport), making sure I bust my ass working so I have enough money when I'm out there, and most importantly having the arrangements for the MapucheRican all set tight.

I haven't been on a vacation without my daughter , since before I gave birth to her. I imagine I will miss her like crazy but it is ok to be totally delighted with the idea of having days of me time, of cheesy sightseeing, and lots of great sex.

I am ignoring the meaning of this trip. I am ignoring that fact that el Cubano calls me everyday at least once. I am ignoring the attention and not paying attention and not getting attached. Everyone else, including my family is reading into the meaning of this trip and I refuse to. I can't wrap my brain around it .

I am worried about el Cubano's moods and living with them for a few days in a row in a place where I am pretty much dependent on him .

But I'm also incredibly excited and happy and damnit if I could just stop coughing.
Anything I absolutely must see while in the Los Angeles area???

Well, you can hit the usual landmarks like Hollywood Blvd., the Chinese Theatre, Beverly Hills, Santa Monica Beach and Venice Beach. I think you'll like, if not love, Venice Beach because it's an artists' melting pot. Jetblue has great rates to California, but the arriving airport is Long Beach instead of LAX.
