Woke up yesterday morning to a helicopter outside. My mom’s new house backs up to the start of an airport runway. It’s a very teeny tiny airport, so only private planes come in/out. Well, they frequently do helicopter tours, I guess, because it comes down pretty close to the backyard. If I was having sex out on the patio, I’m sure I could convince them to make this house a regular stop on their tour.
He was much lower (about the height of the roof), but by the time I ran inside to get the camera, he was already flying off.
Mom and I went and had breakfast, then headed over to my stepdad’s house (grr at this whole living/not living together situation). I was happy to see him and he was more than thrilled to see me.
I am spending today with him. He’s going to make one of my favorite food’s for me. Can’t wait.
While at his house, we picked up their dog. He’s flying to Wisconsin for several weeks, so Mom is babysitting the dog. Lucky her. Lucky me. A 10 day vacation from the ranch and the dogs at home and I get this…
Mom wants to go see the new Harry Potter movie. I promised I’d go with her, but I needed to refresh my characters and see the most recent ones first. So, I sat and watched The Prisoner of Azkaban Sunday night. Great movie! Yesterday afternoon, while Mom was at work, I started The Order of the Phoenix. Unfortunately, I fell asleep 1/2 way through, and haven’t been able to finish it yet.
A stop at The Beachcomber Pub was a must. That is Mom’s hangout, so I’ll be there a few more times, I imagine. Plus, when I told the bartender I was Mom’s daughter, my drinks and food were on the house. Awesome!
See you later this evening for the wrap up of day three.
