This evening Nicole called and she was telling me that since she sees Addie every day, it’s surprising for her to see Addie in pictures, a week since she saw her in real life.
Then she talked to Addie.
Nicole: Are you having fun?
Nicole: Are you staying longer than two weeks?
Addie: Yes, a little longer.
Nicole: Do you think you want to stay there forever?
Nicole: Do you want us to move there?
I was concerned that Addie was going to change her mind at the last minute and not come home with me; now I’m a bit concerned she may not want to go home! No I’m not really concerned about that. She’s having fun here. Nicole works so Addie goes to day care. Here she’s free to roam around all day. She goes over and plays with Boots. She’s going through everything in my sewing room . . wanting to know what things are and finding things she wants to keep. She goes into the orchard 10 times a day and gets plums. She loves those! Today the propane guy was here and he went out and picked a few plums. Addie was whispering to me “Granny! Make him stop! He’s going to take them all!” I told her we have plenty to share. She loves the RTV. Our driveway is level with no drop offs so I push the gas pedal and let her “drive”. She wants to go check the mail a dozen times a day. We don’t do it though. Today I knew there was no mail but I also knew she was chomping at the bit to drive so we drove up there anyway.
We’ve finished our first week together and are starting our second week. I think she’ll stay about three weeks but we’ll see. Heck, the way the coronavirus is going crazy in Texas, they may not even let us back in Missouri!
