Our Day

BOTH girls -- read it -- BOTH GIRLS came over to our apartment today! We started out by them going in the bathroom and changing. I could tell that K19 was a bit nervous. I said, "What do you think of our apartment?" She replied, "It's small."

We went swimming. For once, it was not 103 degrees outside, cloudy and threats of rain. After about an hour, the girls started getting hungry, so we went back to the apartment to change. I don't know if K19 went in the bedroom or not. J says that I obsess about my kids going into the bedroom.

I ordered a fancy pizza because that's the cool thing to do. We watched "Riding the Bus With My Sister" which we had taped from the Hallmark Channel and ate the pizza. Then K15 and I got down to business to do Spanish and Science work for two hours while K19 watched TV and read. I kind of hinted that 5:00 would be a good time to call it a day; they had been here since 11:00. So, all in all, a great day. I did not sit on the couch with them like I had planned to do, but they both seemed relaxed and content. I did catch K19 poking around the kitchen at one point. I think she is just kind of curious.

Soon, I will have to start putting mine and J's photo on the frig. I refuse to put it in a drawer every time the girls come by. It has to come out sometime. I figure that by Christmas, I will be wearing my wedding band full time.

Sounds wonderful, and I am glad K19 is poking around frankly, she will see you are still Mom, first and foremost.
