Eva has already told you that the weekend was great. There were some real changes from the first time. Not with us, I loved Eva from the moment I saw her (even before that really) it was the fact that she was lighter - and I do not mean just the weight. C.C mentioned it in an email Eva’s whole outlook was lighter. Walking distances, climbing mountains and excessive picture taking were thing we did not do the first time. We did all those things this time. This visit showed that she is healthier and happier and I loved the changes!!
There was another change and this was in Mollie! Mollie was very leery of Eva and Adam’s first visit. Who could really blame her? Mom goes from checking her email once a week to having the laptop as a permanent appendage. And this ‘women’ coming to visit has captured mom’s attention in a big way! On the first visit if Mollie was in the room she was either on my lap or sitting beside me and leaning on me. If she had been a dog she would have peed on me to claim her territory! It was very obvious to the adults but not to Mollie. This time was much different! For one thing she and Eva spent the first hour they were here texting each other. When I text her to say Eva had come to visit me not her she text back “jealous?” So Mollie had fully accepted them and not once this time did she sit on my lap. It was fun watching them together.
Mollie also loved the pup! Don’t let Eva fool you he was an angel while they were here. My dog, older, much bigger really enjoyed having a playmate. Of course once our dog, a little tired of playing, picked up his paw and swatted the pup on the butt! Don’t know who he has been watching!
One more thing – hold your breath! Mollie turns 15 today! There is a ton I could say about that but there is only thing Mollie is thinking of, today she can get her learners permit (provided she passed the test). I am guessing she can and I will let you know or you might hear my sobs. But here I go on another life adventure! Please pray for me!
