About 6 am today, Pooka's in the shower, my mom and I are in the living room watching the news, they show the bus stop weather report....
Me: That reminds me, when I went to get Pooka's uniform yesterday (around 6:25 am). I saw some kids that looked like high schoolers at the bus stop already! Standing there in the dark.
Mom: Mmph! They must have a long bus route.
Me: Probably. I'm glad the sun is out when Pooka has to be at the stop. But then again, by time she's in high school she'd be staying home by herself and I won't mind her being at the stop before daybreak.
Mom: I'll probably be in another neighborhood by then.
Me: *pauses, then flashes back to the previous evening when my mom asked if her medical records came in the mail* In NC?
Me: *pauses again* Do you plan on going back to MD?
Then she goes on about how my grandmother is getting older and how she likes it better in NC so forth and so on. I told her that she tried moving here before and she went back to MD. She responded that she doubts she'll go back. Her grand plan is to move back to the country part of NC where the root of my family lives. All I could do was laugh!
She originally told me she was going to be here till Christmas....
Then she told me she was staying till the end of 2010....
When the entire time she was planning not to go back at all!!!!!!
Lawd have mercy! Wait till I call my granddiva and tell her about this! LOL!
