$7.95, not including the bills for your triple-bypass surgery down the road
[non-monetary] cost of LA trip: several fatigue- and hormone-induced meltdowns [seriously. i wouldn't take me anywhere these days] and my LAST EVERRRR true vacation day in fellowship.
but still worth it, to catch up with wonderful old friends + to enjoy this look on josh's face on receiving his [single] hot dog:
value of hearing one tiny little 11-week heartbeat after spending many hours being paranoid:
. . . well, i think you get my drift. [and thank you to another amazing friend for understanding my paranoia and lending me your doppler!!!]
i'm home + about to pass out, so i guess that pacific time didn't stick. back tomorrow!
