Wow..so much has happened that I haven't had time to blog about.
We got here on Tuesday night. Wednesday we laid about the house and just chilled with Toby and Haylee. Lorelli had a blast playing with the new puppy and chasing the cats. She made enemies with Maddie the big cat and Miley is not sure what to do with her yet. Sassy, on the other hand, is happy to have someone her size to play with her. And they run almost as fast as each other.
Thursday, we went to the hospital to visit my high school friend, Lori Rodriguez because she was being induced to have her baby. Things went very well with her for the most part for her. We got there around midday and she had the baby at 2:12 pm July 17. He weighed 7lbs 10oz and was a big 19 inches long. Baby and Mommy are doing very well from what I have heard. He was a pretty little baby. It was nice being at the hospital and spending time with Lori's parents. I have not seen them since high school. Lori's mother has been going through chemotherapy and had her last treatment on Friday. That was very nice timing since her good days are Wednesdays and Thursdays. :-)
Friday was the day we were going to go to Benjamin's after picking up the rental car. The rental car was a debacle. Enterprise wanted to charge me, or put a hold on my card for, $250. I didn't want that because my whole card limit is $250. So, I went over to Avis and got my rental. By then it was after 3 and when I called Benjamin we decided it was too late to go visit. So, we came out to my mom's without calling or anything. We pulled up right as she was pulling into her driveway. She was very shocked to see us since she was not expecting us until Monday. Lorelli got to stay and play and swim and have fun for like 4 hours or so at her grandma's house before we had to head over to her auntie Dalia's house.
At her tia Dalia's house she decided that she was scared as we got to the door and covered her eyes. As soon as we walked in her cousin Aahilyn grabbed her and hugged her and was yelling "Lorelli Lorelli Lorelli." But shortly thereafter Lorelli decided she wasn't scared anymore and started playing and running around and having fun. When it was time for me to leave and her to stay the night I expected the normal upset little crazy baby, but NO not this time...this time she said, "Ok, I love you mommy. See you later. Call me back." It kinda hurt my feelings. Oh well...I guess it should be a good sign that she is growing up and remembering her family and people and now she is not so scared of everything.
More to come later about going out with my friends and the happenings of all that......
