Today, I could feel the cabin fever setting in, and I called my mom for some relief. She asked me if I would want to go to the funeral for Helena’s uncle Jerry. I told her not really, but she said it would be good for you to go, and Helena would really like to see you there.
When I got to the funeral, my little cousin Angelina spotted me. My dad said, “You have been spotted.” I laughed. She became stuck on me like glue, throughout the entire service, and luncheon. The luncheon was at Rockefellers in Kennedy. They have a great bathroom mirror and lighting, perfect for selfies! We took some selfies, and a cute video of her taking all the paper towels! It was good to have some cousin time and to laugh.
After the luncheon, I drove Dorcas, Katie, and Angelina back to my house to see my town home. They did not get to see it yet. I asked Angelina if she wanted to spend the night and we would go to the pool in the morning. She said that she wanted to, but I had to drive her to Monroeville to get her things and bring her back tomorrow, I agreed.”
When we got back to Moon, I drove us to Giant Eagle to get some pop, popcorn, a movie, and etc. for the evening. Now to tell Drew that Angelina was staying, I had a feeling he would be okay with it, which he was when I told him. That evening we watched Minons, ate pizza, and made popcorn. Drew went to bed early, and I was getting so tired. I asked Angelina if she was ready for bed. She said she was scared and wanted to go home at this point it was 1am. I told her no way. It was 1am, and it was bed time. She begged me to have her call her mom. I let her call her mom, and Dorcas talked her into calming down and taking an Advil and that she has to stay there it is too late to go home.
Once she calmed down, she said I could go back upstairs with Drew, which I did. Just as I fell asleep, she came upstairs, and asked me to come downstairs with her. I turned all the lights on for her, let her keep the television on, and calmed her down again. She finally let me go back upstairs, at this point Drew was awake off and on. I told him to move over, so I could get into bed.
At 5am, she woke me up, so she could call her mom before she went to work. I gave her my phone and told her to go into the hallway, that Drew was trying to sleep and that he had to go to work in the morning. When she was off the phone, she handed it back to me, and I said go downstairs and go back to bed it is too early. She said, “yes ma’am.” She went back downstairs, and I got up when Drew left to go to work. I laid on the couch with her and we ended up falling asleep again.
Eventually, it was time to get ready to go to clean grandmas, then get Starbucks, and go to the pool. I wanted to relax and tan, but Angelina had other plans. I got her a raft, and she made me toss her in and out of the water. I think I tired her out. On the home back to Monroeville, she fell asleep. I thought to myself now you sleep! I cannot wait to sleep tonight! When I finally got to Moon, Drew was happy to see me and we were back to just being us. It felt so good to sleep that night.
