REASONS I GOT IN BED BEFORE 8PM

I'm on part biz/part leisure trip in SoCal
  1. I'm traveling with Mom
  2. We went to dinner at 630
  3. It's Santa Barbara. Everyone eats at 630.
  4. So the restaurants turn tables fast.
  5. We had Mexican food at Los Arroyos in Montecito. We are stuffed.
  6. I'm a little jet lagged. Mom swears she is not. But she's sleeping already.
  7. But mostly I think we are in bed because we are sad. Which is normal: Dad died four weeks ago today.
    It's still shocking to think about. But Mom and I are managing ok, at least today. Time will heal.
