I woke up at 8 to finish cleaning the house some before my mom and A arrived. A little after 10, I knew to just get over it because it was a lost cause. Mom doesn't care and quite frankly, neither does A.
On my way to the bus station, I couldn't help but think that almost 11 months to the day, I was picking A up from the bus station for completely different reasons. I think if I had been picking them up in the night time, it would have had an even harder impact on me emotionally. We arrived at the bus station literally about 45 seconds before they did. By the time we pulled in, parked, and started walking for the door, I saw their bus pull up.
As we waked to the back of the bus station, I was wondering how A was going to react to me. Would she be shy? Would she run? There wasn't long for me to think about that, though, because just a few moments later, A ran passed the crowd straight into my arms.
She was a little shy at first, as to be expected, but she's warming up. My mom told me my father told her that if she came to Florida again she would never get to see her mom and dad because we would take her away. WHO the fuck tells a five year old that?
She wasn't here but a few hours before she requested Starbucks, sushi, the movies, the beach, and Chuck E Cheese. That's our girl!
We went swimming today in the pool, out to dinner with a friend, and to the store to pick out her a backpack for Kindergarten.
It's been a good day and I am sure tomorrow will be even better. I'm hoping to attend church in the morning.
I should have the review for Raw Organics posted tomorrow. I set up my computer tonight, but it has apparently reset itself and I may have lost everything. NYEBoy is going to look at it tomorrow before I freak out. Thanks for baring with me, I know you all understand.
Also a special thanks for the emails, comments, tweets, and texts this morning and afternoon. It's so nice to know A is loved by so many.
