That’s about all I have to say about today. I have so much to do this week, not the least of which is putting a proposal together.
I thought I was going to have to drive in to Dallas in 106 degree temperatures to get Mercy, but an amazing thing happened. When Mercy was waiting for her flight in Amsterdam, her friend Shaelyn walked up to the gate! Shaelyn has been in France for several weeks, and it just so happened that she and Mercy were on the same flight from Amsterdam to Dallas! Shaelyn’s family have lived in our neighborhood almost as long as we have, and in fact Mercy will be moving next week to live in Shaelyn’s apartment with her. So anyway, Shaelyn’s had enough room for Mercy in their air-conditioned minivan, and they picked her up and brought her home.
It sure is good to have her back! Lucy and I made some good homemade pizza for her welcome-home meal, with ice cream for dessert. I hope she can sleep tonight after having two Mondays in a row.
