Catching Up—Again

I was way too tired to blog last night–sorry! It ended up being quite a day. I got up relatively early and did some stuff and practiced my music for today. By the time Lucy and Geneva got up and were eating brunch, I was ready for a nap!

We left in midafternoon for Dallas. We stopped on the way for the girls to get drinks, and because we were trying to give Geneva the full Texas experience, we stopped at Buc-ee’s.

And yes, we took photos with the creepy sculpture!

Next on the girls’ list was the Galleria mall. For that excursion, I stayed in the car in the parking garage. I knew they would have more fun without me, and I didn’t want to be tempted to spend any money!

By the time they were done shopping, we were all hungry. In fact I’d say we were closer to ravenous. The girls hadn’t eaten (other than a couple of small snacks) since brunch and I had just snacked a little instead of having lunch. Lucy and I had agreed to take Geneva to our favorite Ethiopian restaurant. We walked in the door at about 8:00 but didn’t get our food until 8:30, by which time we were almost perishing!

I was so afraid Geneva wouldn’t like Ethiopian food, but my fears were ungrounded. The three of us attacked that platter and ate up every succulent morsel! Lucy and I were literally dancing with joy in our seats. It was oh so good.

From there, of course, we had to make our way to the airport to put Geneva on her plane home. It was a late flight, which made it easier for me to find a parking spot. We said our goodbyes, and issued a blanket invitation for her to return at any time, and then Lucy and I trudged back to the car and faced the long drive home.

We arrived home at a little after 1:00 and I didn’t get to bed till after 2:00, so making it through church this morning was a little challenging!
