After work today, I took the bus out of Oakland with Drew. Once we were in town, at the bus stop, I kissed Drew goodbye and I got on the G2 to Crafton. Drew was going back to Moon, then to hang out with Zach.
When I got to the Crafton bus stop, I drove to my parents. I was excited to see my dogs. When I pulled into the back alley, I parked my car, got out and walked to my parents’ back gate. I saw my dogs come running up the walkway. I kissed them through the gate. I couldn’t wait to see them. I miss them so much.
When I walked inside the house, I kissed my dad, and greeted my mom. I got on the floor and played with the dogs. At one point, I got Louie kind of all fired up, and he collided in to Paris. She yelped and was having a hard time opening her right eye. I picked her up and held her close. I said, I was sorry. I got a warm paper towel and held it to her eye. I told her that Louie is such a brute. I felt so bad.
When it was time to go, I put her down and we gave them a treat, then we were out the door. We went to Kohl’s first, then to Red Lobster. At Kohl’s, I bought two pairs of black leggings, and a pair of jeans. My mom let me use her Kohl’s cash. My total was $28.00, not bad.
At Red Lobster, my dad was already at a table. I thought I wanted Crab legs, but instead I got lobster tacos, a bowl of Clam Chowder, and a Caesar salad. I ate so well! I wasn’t sure what I was going to do after dinner. I drove separately to dinner. I didn’t want to leave Crafton so late and get back to Moon so late, then again I didn’t want to go home to empty house and wait for Drew to get home either.
After dinner, I said goodbye and thank you to my parents, and then drove towards Moon. I called Anthony. He told me he was having a pumpkin carving party at his house. I said, “Oh yea, I forgot.” He told me to come over. I wasn’t sure, but I decided to swing over there anyway. I put my lobster taco in his fridge. I figured I would get it when I left.
When they were all carving pumpkins, and discussing what they were going to make. I missed Drew. I just wanted to be home with him and not here with them. I tried to par take in the fun, but I just wasn’t feeling festive. I missed my husband.
At one point, my phone vibrated and I saw it was a text from Andrew saying he was on his way home. I texted him and asked him if he wanted to come to Anthony’s. He said, aww yea, I will be right there.” I smiled and was excited to see him. He called me when he was out front and I opened the door for him, and I gave him a big hug and a kiss. He hugged me so tightly. I missed him and I could tell he missed me.
When we walked into Anthony’s, I introduced him to everyone. We got to see everyone’s pumpkins all lit up and carved. They all looked so cool! I liked Rebecca’s and Shelly’s the best. Andrew and I hung out in the corner and talked to Dylan a bit. We decided to leave around 10:30pm. I was getting tired, and he was too.
