    After I got home from the cooking, and during my constant stream of blather and ramble and chaos that I was directing into Beloved's ears, at aroudn 10:10 p.m., the phone rang. That's a little late for our phone to ring. But I quickly remembered that the girls are in the car with Biological, driving to the paternal grandparents home, which will require a couple and a half days on the road.

    It was Thing One. I told her of my surprise that her friend's mom was my chef, and she said, "oh! I saw that on your event packet, and I knew it was her mom, but I decided to surprise you. I didn't realize it was happening this late in the summer, though, I thought I would be there when you got home." My child is getting too old.

    She called to ask if please please please, one summer can WE go on a road trip together. I said sure. She said, "but we always have to go to [middle of the country] in the summer! How will we ever get to do a road trip!" I had a moment of inner glee that she just said that, in the tone that she said it, with her Biological and Step Mother in the front seat. Then I said, "honey, we get a few weeks together at the end of the summer, one year, I'll make sure i have vacation time for those weeks, and we'll go on a road trip." She said, "good, b/c I know it won't be this boring with you and [beloved]."

    la la la la la :)

    They were driving through thunderstorms, and the phone kept cutting out, so it was slightly frustrating, but otherwise, we both got to have a nice talk with Thing One, and I had a nice talk with Thing Two - as the phone was handed to Beloved, theirs cut out again, and I guess that is the point at which Biological said Enough.

    It was nice to hear from them.
